Candace “Candy” Cutter is seventeen years old and just wants to earn a volleyball scholarship. She receives a far more elaborate gift, or curse, when she falls into a coma and emerges with unbelievable power. But she’s not the only one. Other humans have power too. They have power because they’re demon possessed.

Yet Candy is different, special, the first of her kind pet project for a demon overseer who means to teach her that even among demons, it’s kill or be killed.

Spanky Little Rascals Waiting

What it feels like to be a NON full-time author.

It’s not easy to write. Honestly, it’s oftentimes a real chore. There are days when I can’t even look at my work because I know that I have no clue where the character or story is going. I take breaks to find inspiration and then I feel like a jerk because I’ve wasted time on other things besides writing (curse you, Cosby show reruns). Every so often I have great floods of creative outpouring (which is FANTASTIC, by the way), but those days seem few and far between. Most days involve threading together those great floods of creative outpouring without slamming my head into the monitor and giving up, and that’s BEFORE I spend time on editing.

The real culprit to my writing troubles is time. There is only so much time in the day and that is quickly devoured by job and family, and all the things that a non-published author is supposed to do in order to market his or her work. My advice, just write. Whenever you can, for as long as you’re able, just find some time to write. As for social media, add things to your channels whenever you get a minute but don’t stress about it because the truth about social media is that it’s oftentimes not very social. Most people will simply pass over your post or maybe hit the like button. Some may offer encouragement and others will offer sarcasm. There’s very little time to talk or to ask questions or to learn more and so most people don’t. I think the sad truth for an author is that nobody cares until they do and they won’t care until you’ve written a few books and more than a few people like what it is that you’ve written. Oh, and if it’s free then maybe people will read it—if they have the time.
