For those of you new followers who perhaps don’t know, I’m a writer. Writing and everything bookish in general is my passion and has been for as long as I can remember. I published my debut novel at age seventeen and then published its sequel at age nineteen. I wrote a third novel for NaNoWriMo in November, and I’m working on editing it. It’s been a slow process since I’ve been either working (and subsequently exhausted at the end of the day–not a good state for editing) or job hunting (and therefore distracted, which is also not a good state for editing). I am dying to edit through this third book, craft it further, polish it, and let my husband read it to see what he thinks. Hopefully soon I’ll be able to seriously get into it. I’m honestly stoked about this story and I can’t wait to do more with it!
On that writerly note, I wanted to let you all know that I have updated my website domain. You can now find my website at http://www.tiallarising.com. You might (or might not) recall it used to be TheRubyVial.com, which is playing off a significant magical object from my first book. While it wasn’t an issue when I published my first book, once I published my second book, it started to feel off. This is due to even though the second book is a sequel, the Ruby Vial isn’t present in the story. Now that I’m working on a third book which is completely unconnected with the first two, I felt like a change was in order.
It makes more sense to focus on my website as a place for readers to find the books I’ve written (and therefore giving me ample flexibility for adding more books of all genres and worlds), rather than a website based on the first book. My interests go far beyond the plot of my first book, so changing the URL to TiallaRising.com feels just so much more write! (Ha, I’m so punny.) 😉 I also feel like it gives me more freedom to grow beyond my first book, which is always something I’m striving for.
Anyway, that’s the update! I think I’ve changed all my links on my blog to the new URL, but if you happen to catch one that doesn’t work in your perusing, please let me know.
Have a great weekend, friends! I have no idea what’s in store for us this weekend, but I hope it includes lots of rain and thunderstorms. ❤
