So it's  been quite a long time since I've been active on this website. But now, having to endure insomnia even though I'm super freaking tired from having an 8 month old to take care of (who doesn't sleep through the night, by the way), I have become much more active with my writing. As you probably know, I am currently editing my short story "Escape." You will find a few chapters already posted on the

Stories to Come

I know, I know: you've been hearing it for a long time now. "GET ON WITH IT, WOMAN!" you're saying.

I haven't forgotten my goals. I do still have a few books/stories I'm working on. I've just hit a "I suck" wall. I'm not feeling very motivated lately because of it. But I'm trying to get back into things. I finished the sequel to "Dies Irae." You'd think that would make me happy and give me motivation to work on the others ... but, the people I've sent it to (a fan; a sister;...

DIES IRAE Coming Back to Amazon!

Posted by Sara Vance-Hogan on December 22, 2010 at 2:46 PM Comments comments (1)

That's the good news. The bad news: it was going to cost a MINIMUM of $23.60 for the combo book "Love &  Friendship." That would have been the absolute minimum price, in which I would not receive a penny. Don't get me wrong, I'm no money-grubber, but I would like a LITTLE bit of a royalty -- I worked very hard on "Dies Irae" for five years. And even if I did go penniless,  the book would STILL be too expensive.


SO, because of that, I decided to NOT publis...

Well, here I am, revamping this website. I learned some new tricks and have been giving it a makeover. There's easier navigation and it's just overal better organized.

I have several new story ideas, too. However, I would like to complete one or more of the stories I'm already working on, so they won't begin for a while.

Are you bored? Do you like interaction with your stories? Why don't you

September Update

Posted by Sara Vance-Hogan on September 22, 2010 at 9:13 PM Comments comments (0)

I have been unable to write much the past several weeks due to a new "job" I have. I am being paid by my sister to take my niece to school every morning because my niece's schedule conflicts with my sister's. My niece gets dropped off at my house at 6am and I watch her until 8:30 when I take her to school. I also pick her up from school and in addition babysit my other niece (her sister) a day or two a week (though this week I have been babysitting both of them since my parents are out of tow...

First Story: In Aeternum

Good morning, everyone!

I  have given the link to this website to a few people to help get me started. It's still not technically public as I would like to have a few more stories and/or installments before I post the link for everyone to see.

But, a couple of people wanted to start reading my first posted story, "In Aeternum" right away, despite having to wait for updates (which, I apologize for. I wish it was already complete and you didn't have to w...
