Once More With DRAGONS: My YA Book Deal Announcement Is Out!

There you have it, folks. BLAZEWRATH, also known as The Book Of My Dreams, will be published in Fall 2020.

I can’t believe I wrote that sentence.

This book has been haunting me since 2014. It took me two years to figure out the story it really was, and to find the courage to write it. No other book had intimidated me quite like this one. I figured I was too terrible of a writer to actually try drafting it. When I finally started it in December 2016, it was a slow and painful process made even more so after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico in September 2017. That first draft took a backseat while I dealt with the lack of power, water, and the will to do anything productive. Hands down, it was the worst period of my life.

I hope to write more about how BLAZEWRATH came to be a completed manuscript, and how it’s going to be a real book next year. For now, I just wanted to share my excitement over a project that’s challenged me and fulfilled me the most out of anything I’ve written. This wild ride started three years ago.

I can’t wait to see where it takes me next.
