I really miss writing. Like, a lot. So while I've been on this break, I did what people suggested--I decided to use this time to read. I asked for suggestions, I cruised Amazon, and I googled. I wanted to read some mainstream bestsellers, just to prove to myself that I could write written-to-market novels and … Continue reading When solutions backfire
Head on over to Sarah’s blog for the latest review of Unbroken Fire!
After dealing what she hopes is a major blow to the enemy, Avery Rendon has found her way home to Asria. Safe for now, she spends her time adjusting to her new role in her planet’s future and reveling in personal victories. But Asria is still under the control of the Haederan Empire, and their grip has only tightened since the invasion. When the Asrian prime minister asks her to beg the Commonwealth for help in person, she agrees.
It’s a harrowing trip to the Commonwealth’s headquarters, one which comes to an abrupt end when her ship is intercepted by the Haederans in deep space. Her traitorous uncle, the former king of Asria, is there waiting for her. Worse, so is the Haederan interrogator who has haunted her nightmares for the past year. And what he wants with her now? Avery isn’t sure she wants to find out.

First, I've mentioned this a few places, but I just can't keep my mouth shut any longer. Asrian Skies was released almost a year, and on September 17, I've got some exciting news for its birthday. Want a hint? Here you go: I'm pretty excited about this, so make sure you check my Facebook page … Continue reading News & a rant about hobby writing
I'm going to be honest today--maybe too honest. Writing didn't up the way it was supposed to. But let me back up. For those who don't know, eight years ago I packed up my life to marry my husband. I moved three hours away, began to telecommute, and started a period of moves, deployments, and … Continue reading Writing alone
Back in the dark ages when I was a newly-minted CFI, an acquaintance approached me. He needed a flight review. Sure, I said. I charge $20 an hour, flight and ground time. He looked at me like I'd lost my mind. I wasn't expecting to pay you, he replied. Aren't you just happy enough to be … Continue reading Why you won’t find my books on KU
For the one month anniversary of Unbroken Fire, I'm answering more questions about my books, my writing process, and Asrian Skies world! This post is one of the few I've actually scheduled, because right now I'm attending my first writing conference--the fabulous Realm Makers. What’s your world building process? Worldbuilding isn't a separate process for … Continue reading You asked, I answered (part 2)
The title isn't meant to be controversial, but perhaps it is. And controversy or not, it's something I struggle with. We talk about vanity publishing a lot--those companies who prey on writers, charging sometimes tens of thousands of dollars for nothing more than putting a book on Amazon, promising best-seller status. If only the writer … Continue reading Is all self-publishing vanity?
My awesome critique partner and I chatted about Unbroken Fire and Chase. Visit her blog to read!
…the sound of slow clapping filled the room. Confused, she frowned in the direction of the lieutenant, but his attention was directed over her head.
“That was one of the most entertaining stories I’ve heard in a long time. Don’t care about the situation on Asria, do you? I’m not sure I believe that.”
—excerpt Unbroken Fire by Anne Wheeler
I’ve been looking forward to this day for almost two years now! There were times when it seemed like it wouldn’t come to pass, so I’m beyond excited to celebrate my critique partner’s release of the SEQUEL Unbroken Fire to her well-loved debut Asrian Skies, which came out September 2017. You can find my review of Asrian Skies on GoodReads.
A year? That doesn’t seem long, you say.
Friends, I have been reading snippets of Unbroken Fire since Anne completed the draft of Asrian Skies…

On June 4, 2016 (as best I can find), I wrote the first words to the story that would become Asrian Skies. I didn't know anything except there was a story trying to force itself out of my brain. I had no idea. I had no idea that two years later, I'd have written 298,000+ words, 3 … Continue reading 700+ days of writing
