My Dearest Readers, I’m here. I know I haven’t been around much on social media for the past month, but I wanted to let you all know that I’m still here. I’m still writing. I’m still doing my best. I’ve been thinking a lot over the past few days about what I wanted to say to you all when I came back after a much-needed break from most of my social media, and I found out that it’s really complicated. I have some pretty heavy things going on in my life, but they are also intensely personal. … [Read more...] about Dear Readers: An Honest Update From Sarra
Hey, everyone! I know the big question on everyone's mind when it comes to my books is "When is the next Shadow Demons Saga book coming out?". Believe me, I completely understand how difficult it can be to wait for a book that you're dying to read, and I'm so incredibly grateful that you guys are excited about Beyond The Darkness. I had hoped to have a release date ready for you by the end of this month, but here we are on the last day of February, and I'm sad to say that I'm not ready to … [Read more...] about A Quick Demons Update
The final book in my Fairhope series, The Trouble With I Do, is out today! Gosh, you guys, this book was such a labor of love. It is probably the most vulnerable I have been in a book since The Trouble with Goodbye, and I think it's because Leigh Anne is so much like me in so many ways. The book is pure fiction, of course, but I guess there's a piece of me in every major heroine I write. Maybe Leigh Anne a little bit extra :). The Trouble With I Do comes full circle, returning us to the first … [Read more...] about New Release!!! The Trouble With I Do, Fairhope 6
Happy Book Birthday to Beautiful Demons!!!! It was exactly six years ago today that my very first novel was published. I was excited and so in love with Harper and the story I had created, but I had no idea that Beautiful Demons would resonate with so many people! My first full month, I sold something like 59 copies of that first book, and I was on cloud nine! Someone was reading my book!! Of course, I knew back then that it was mostly friends and family, but I didn't care. I had done … [Read more...] about Celebrating 6 Years of Indie Publishing
It's almost that most magical time of year -- NaNo WriMo!!! For those of you not familiar with NaNo, it stands for National Novel Writing Month, and it comes around every November. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. Whew, trust me when I say this is not easy!! But you can also trust me when I say it's incredibly fun. I participated in NaNo WriMo for the first time back in 2007, shortly after I quit my job teaching music at an Elementary School in order to pursue my lifelong … [Read more...] about Tracking NaNo WriMo Word Count in My Bullet Journal
Hi, everyone!! You may have noticed that I've been awfully quiet most of the summer. I made a post where I got super excited about everything I was working on back in June, and then I promptly hit a major wall. Basically, everything I said back then has needed to be completely revamped and reworked, but this is the way it goes when you are living a creative life. Sometimes it's just not easy to create, and you have to learn to roll with the punches and try to keep your head up. I don't want … [Read more...] about September Update – What’s Coming Next?
