NEW WEBSITE - shonellbacon.com

As of today, this site will no longer be updated. I am moving to shonellbacon.com. Why the move? Well, it's mostly because I want to reclaim my full name. I like it and it's the name on my books, so sounds like a good thing to do. Another reason? I had issues with hosting and Wordpress and the provider I was with never seemed able to correct the issue, so I had moved this site to Blogger, which kinda limits templates and functionality for me. Was ready to get back to WP.

With all that said, come check out the new site. I plan to blog more in the future--been slacking in that area lately, so be on the lookout, thanks!

First Page of New Story

Yes. Yes. And Yes.

It has been a long, long time.

Needless to say, I haven't been writing--not creatively anyway.

Most of my writing has been academic as I have been writing (and revising and revising and rewriting) proposals and gearing up to take my qualifying exams at the end of August.

Once I finished edits on Into the Web, the second story in the Double Inkwell series back in January, I've been in academic mode.

But in the back of my mind, I'd been thinking about the new story. The main character has been talking to me, and slowly, I had been making my way to the first page of the story.

Last night, I wrote it, and here it is.


For now, I'll just give the title: INSIDE. More to come as I write more. Hope to do more writing soon as I'd like to have this book done by end of the year and be moving on to the third book in the Double Inkwell series.
