Author of Urban Fantasy and Horror

Crazy! Overwhelming!

It's been a crazy year! I'm not sure what I was thinking when I started making so many life changes. 

At the end of 2014 I purchased a home. I also decided to make the shift from exclusively working with publishing houses to being a hybrid author. I released my first indie book in October 2014. In January 2015 I changed jobs. I went from technical writer to business analyst. I also had the brilliant idea that I would resurrect Adrienne Kama (my erotic romance persona) long enough to finish out the Stella Rice series. This while still releasing books as Heather Elizabeth King. In November 2015 I'm co-hosting a one day reader event with author Bridget Midway. 

I've spent much of this year trying to learn how to be a successful indie author. I've read every Liliana Hart, Joanna Penn, and Hugh Howey interview I could get my hands on. Not to mention my favs, Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant. Their advise/books are informative and hilarious!

Now, I think I've got a good plan to take into 2016!

I've felt a bit overwhelmed this year, to say the least. I haven't been as productive as I was last year, in regards to promo and marketing my books. I've pretty much just been learning, writing, and editing. Next year I plan to up the production schedule and do a better job of sticking to my release dates. And while I'll probably still release Adrienne Kama books periodically, my focus is on my Heather Elizabeth King books and building my brand as a paranormal author.

Next year I'll have more book signings, readings, and attend more author events. I should also give my private life a little TLC. Ironically, writing about romance leaves little time for actual romance!!! Who knew!

So I just wanted to say thank you to the wonderful readers who have stuck by me through this period of transition. Next year I promise to have lots more paranormal mysteries and paranormal romance! Stay tuned!!!
