To Encourage and Inspire

ENCOURAGEMENT AWARD2 samThere’s no better way to jump back into the writing community than joining WEP’s fun-filled challenges! Support and kindness run through the veins of this talented group. At the prompting of my dear friend & brilliant writer, Damyanti, I tossed my literary hat into the “Spectacular Setting” ring, where Yolanda Renee & Denise Covey rolled out the virtual welcome mat and made everyone feel right at home. I’m honored to be the recipient of their encouragement (special thanks to Donna Hole) and will take this as a sign that I’m traveling down the right path.

The feedback was especially reassuring, since the excerpt I featured, The Weight of Wonder, was taken from my YA fantasy novel, Architects of Illusion. As I wrestle with the final draft of this beast, I find myself questioning what it is, exactly, that I wish to accomplish in literature.

Really Slow Motion – Illume – Rain Boy – Phillip Lober

My writing has evolved into something more. I dream of traveling well beyond the act of telling a compelling story that resonates with readers across the world.  I want my words to not only capture the imagination, but inspire and encourage, with layers of deeper meaning that reaches into a reader’s heart and strengthens from within. I want to be a driving creative force that awakens the mind and charges the spirit to see past the impossible in a world where limitations reign.

What do you hope to accomplish with your writing?

UNCHARTED

Uncharted BannerAfter a lengthy hiatus, I’m back on the virtual block! A combination of personal challenges, novel edits and exciting projects have pulled me away from blogging. It dawned on me last week, after receiving a caring message from a friend, that I really MISSED interacting with my blogging buddies. You guys make the blogosphere an amazing place and I will do my very best to reconnect! If you haven’t already, find me on FB, Twitter & Instagram, where I’m most active!!

I’m in the final draft stages of my debut YA fantasy novel, Architects of Illusion! Over the past several months, I participated in The Great Discontent’s #100DayProject, releasing sneak peeks of the novel’s magical setting via Instagram in collaboration with Biltmore Estate! Step into a world of myth & mystery HERE!

Day 26 Playlist: Two Steps From Hell - Battlecry - Star Sky (feat. Felicia Farerre)  When the sky is ablaze with the flames of a fading sun, and the slated ceiling of Olympus is steeped in shadows, the Goddess of the heavens slips beneath a blanket of stars. They are the guardians of her memories, her story written in their shimmering dust. A fragment of her fate flickers across their faces and falls, painting the horizon with a silent promise. Her love has returned. She can feel the moment his soul touches the earth.

I’ve also been working with an amazing creative team to create an innovative album campaign fusing video graphics, epic music and custom narrated storytelling! The result is UNCHARTED, a visionary reimagining of Greek mythology and ancient history, where the mystery behind the world’s most extraordinary discovery comes to life through the collaborative efforts of graphic designer, Koke Núñez Gómez, recording artist, Aeralie Brighton, and author Samantha Redstreake Geary, under the influence of Immediate Music & Imperativa RecordsThis Is Epic Music Vol. 1.
