The current burning question:

‘Why did you update GenesisSpell?’

The simple answer; I rushed the publishing. The book was incomplete because I released it in two parts, and it needed to be one. And, finally, because it was rushed and my writing was still… very young.

I apologize to my fans and readers for any misunderstanding or inconvenience.

But, I truly feel the new version is what the book was meant to be.

It is a fun-filled romantic action-adventure that no longer ends in the middle. Did I mention the delicious romance and butt-kicking action?

I want to say I’m sorry for updating, but I’d be lying if I apologized. I love the new book. It truly feels like the book it should have been all along.

The silver lining, FateSpell was book 2, it is now part of GenesisSpell, and hopefully, ‘fingers crossed,’ there will be an update that gets pushed through via Kindle fo the E-book.

I will promise this. I will not be updating this book ever again. What it is, is precisely what it’s meant to be. Besides it being a great story, it’s a completed story.

On a side note… Stay tuned for posts about my newest book, Priestess. (Thinking of this book makes me sigh wistfully)

Who am I? I’m Tiffany Easterling, mistake maker, mistake corrector… and writer of delicious romance and butt-kicking action.

 

 

 

 

 


I have been waiting for weeks to announce this.
Guess who got a vendor table at Dragon Con?
That’s right, this girl!!!

I’m going to be in the vendor building, floor 3. Dragon Con Vendor List

You’ll be able to buy your very own copy of the newly released GenesisSpell.
It’s sexy actiony fun, and there is the badest of bad boys.

And, did I mention, you can also buy a copy of Priestess before its Amazon debut?
This little gem is full of delicious romance and butt-kicking action.

I will also have some cool extras, so stopp by.

Come, show off your awesome cosplay, or just to say ‘Hi’. I love to chat.

I’m so friggen excited.

Who am I? I’m Tiffany Easterling, paranormal romance writer… who’s going to Dragon Con.


The first question I get after people find out I am legally blind, and that it’s uncorrectable with glasses or contacts is; what can you see?

Such a difficult question.

Technically, I have to be twenty feet away from something a person with 20/20 vision can see from six hundred feet away.

Still doesn’t compute, does it?

I figured, but describing what I see is just as hard as describing the blue in the sky. It’s beautiful… and blue. You’d think as a writer I would be able to describe that better but I can’t.

I can tell you I love the way it feels in a clear day when the wind is just right and the smell of grass is floating on the air…. but the sky is still just blue.

So I thought I would do a picture show and tell.

Is it weird that I like to take lots of pictures, even though I can’t always see? It’s okay. I know it’s weird.

The images on the left are what I can see, (to the best of my ability to doctor the photos). The images on the right are what a person with 20/20 vision sees, no filters no doctoring.

Firstly, I must explain that because of my congenital condition, my eyes are missing a pigment that allows them to adjust to bright light. During the day under a bright sun, I get what I call light blindness. Also, because my vision is so impaired, I don’t recognize color. I am not colorblind per-say, but unless it is an extremely bright color, I won’t be able to see it. For this reason, I have a fondness for yellow and pink. Finally, I am both nearsighted and farsighted. Makes things fun.

This first image was taken on a beach in Mexico. Thanks to my awesome sister I was able to navigate up and down steep steps and not break my neck.

When I’m with people in public, it is very difficult for me to identify them. As a result, I lose people a lot, and often they are right in front of me. One of the women at the bar is my sister.

Also, I can wander through a grocery store for an hour looking for my husband. And, if he’s feeling mischevious, he’ll let me. (Not in a mean way, it’s usually because he wants to read magazines, but I’m on to him).

Sometimes, I have to catch the bus home. And when I do, I have to cross a six-lane highway. Yeah, it can be a little scary.

Some people may have the inclination to pity me. It’s okay really. I love being me, being legally blind and all. Truthfully, it barely slows me down.

I went to see my fave band, Day6 in Atlanta with my BFF. IT WAS SO AWESOME!!!! They played all my favorite songs, and and and and…. I got to shake their hands. Side note, they are adorable.

Honestly, my vision lends a lot to my imagination. There is so much I can’t see, and so much I can imagine. To me, it feels like the world is magic because I can’t see well enough to know otherwise. I kind of like it that way.

Who am I, I’m Tiffany Easterling, legally blind author with an overactive imagination, and a belief that dragons walk among us because I have yet to see otherwise.


This blog was hard to get out, so it took a long time to write it. Not because ‘the plan’ is some big secret, but because there are some parts of my life are very painful… still.

My Bio is very general, so it isn’t common knowledge that I am one of three siblings. I have an older sister and a younger brother. I had a younger brother.

To say he was my best friend, was an understatement. He was like me, but my brother, and a boy.

We had the same sense of humor, the same sense of fun, and we talked to earth over honestly. There wasn’t anything I couldn’t tell him. I don’t want to make it sound like we always got along, we didn’t, but then again we weren’t afraid to call each other on our shit.

My brother made me okay to be me.

Just so you understand how awesome he was, the picture on the left is of him as an EOUS. (Ewok of unusual size) He made the costume himself. The one on the right is of him at the gaming table goofing off, with me.

I hope you understand how much I love my brother. Because I hope you understand how much it hurt when he died.

I can’t go into details, except to say when someone you love that much dies, it doesn’t really get better with time. It’s more like losing a limb, you just get used to it.

I’m talking about this because this affects ‘the plan,’ and how I became a self-published author.

I think I’m like most writers, I wanted to write my whole life. I just didn’t have the courage to do it. Even when I started talking about getting published obsessively, part of me was like ‘yeah pipe dream.’
I think my brother knew, of course he knew, because he knew me.
His last days, he made me promise, through tears… that I would publish my book.

And so I did.

Hurriedly, with tons of errors… and in two books.

I was in such a hurry to fulfill my promise, because… I don’t even know why, I didn’t tell my story the way I wanted to.

But, I’ve grown as a writer and vastly improved. And, even though it’s unheard of, I plan on updating the two books and publishing them as they were meant to be, as One book. That IS the story I wanted to publish.

And, I know its the story my brother wants me to publish. I can almost hear his lecture about mistakes, the lessons learned from them, and how the road to the castle has cracks… and all.

So that’s the plan.

Soon I will do a re-launch on the book, I have a lot of fun stuff planned.
After that, look forward to Priestess, it will be a whole new series, but I’m already proud of this book, and it hasn’t even gone into editing.

Truthfully, I have zero confidence in my ability as a writer. I love to tell stories that’s all.

I’ve written three books, one is about to be published the way it should be, the second in that series is waiting for editing, the first in a new series is waiting for cover art and editing. I have journal synopsis for two more.

I hope that I do more than fulfill the promise I made to my brother because I now know it wasn’t about finding the courage to publish, it was about finding the courage to follow my dream.

Who am I? I’m Tiffany Easterling, author. And, chaser of dreams.
(No I didn’t cry while writing this, my eyes just spontaneously leak)


So it would seem that I have not updated my blog since… Well, that’s not important since I am doing it now.

What is important is that I survived a toxic cat bite, (though it left a scar), I’m coping with the kitchen remodel, (now in its eighth month), and I am doing a bit better after having a vet emergency that led to the worst case scenario.

No… No… don’t do that, the whole feel sorry for me thing. I was just explaining all the bad.

The good, I have amazing friends, and they took me to see my favorite band Day6. And, dammit those guys are awesome.

My extraordinary sister took me on a cruise with her to Mexico, and we got to traverse the ancient ruins of Tulum. It was a-maz-ing!!!

But, I will tell you about all of the good, in a future blog. And, probably the cat-bite ordeal. Because now, (that it didn’t kill me), it’s funny.

Most importantly…… Most most most most IMPORTANTLY.

I finished book 3.

‘Priestess’ is saved in my cloud and awaiting first round editing.

I am so in love with this book. The setting, the monsters, the characters…. the hot AF rocker-guy. Yeah, all the essentials.

It could be the start of a new series… I don’t know fur sure yet. I know this much, from my point of view, it’s hella good. Not because I wrote it, but because its the story I want to read.

I am trying my hardest to get that up and out before the end of the year. Since my new pledged to stay off the internet, except for research, I am getting more done.

YAY ME1111 AND YAY FOR BOOK 3.

Who am I? I’m Tiffany Easterling. Cat bite survivor and romance writer.


If you don’t already know. I started a video channel.

And, as with most things I do did my research, planned out content, and started making videos.

Video making was kind of… Ugh!

I didn’t expect how time-consuming video making and editing was. And, how much I HATED it.

I mean really hated it.

I can’t express the dread and hatred that came with sitting down and editing new videos, I found myself in a bubble of fear and anxiety whenever I set aside time to make videos. It was a day of torment that ended in awkwardness.

The weird part to this is, I’m an extrovert, far from shy, and I’m not easily embarrassed.

I just can’t vlog.

So, I’m here to announce there will be few to no videos. Instead, I am converting all of my content to blogs. (because it is good content).

There probably will be the occasional awkward, silly video. But, I will be deleting my youtube channel, and any videos will be short, very short, and on my Instagram page.

I’m sorry if I disappointed anybody.

But, I’m a writer… no more, no less. That’s all.

There will be more blogs. I realized that I have to do better at that. If I’m going to use my voice to write, then why put my cheesy geeky opinions of life, cool things, and hot guys out there.

So, look forward to that.

Promise to post again soon.

I have no idea what to talk about today. It’s not that I don’t have things to talk about. I do… I just can’t talk about them, yet.

There is the up-coming EvilBunnyEmpire Youtube relaunch. But, I don’t want to spoil the surprises.

Then there is the big personal project I am thinking of taking on, but I don’t want to talk about it lest I jinx myself.

There’s the new book, but I have a lot of scene and continuity corrections to make. So, all I can say about that is that the sex is hella hot. The action is suspenseful, and the monsters are truly awful.

I could talk about how my kitchen floor is now in buckets, but OMIGOD how boring is that? I’m bored after one sentence.

I will say, my husband so sexy when working with tools. I mean… DAMN!

I’ll have to leave it at… I have a lot of stuff to do so I can share it.

Who a I? I’m Tiffany Easterling, science fiction romance writer extraordinaire, aaannnd  remarkable amateur at everything else.


Hi all,

Sorry for not updating in so long. At least, I can say I am consistently inconsistent.

Before I do anything else, I want to say hello to any new visitors, and welcome. Thank you for checking out my website. Feel free to browse at your leisure.

Also, thank you to everyone that downloaded my books this weekend. My free book campaign was awesome success. It made me excitedly tear up.

So, what’s next?

We-ell…. there is a YouTube channel revamp/relaunch on the horizon… like soon.

I think I’ve overcome my anxiety when facing a camera, which is weird for me. I can talk to anyone, pretty much about anything, even sports if necessary. But, put me in front of a camera and I turn into solid stone.
How is this possible? There’s NO ONE there.

I am just a teensy disappointed in myself. I am a writer after all. As a general rule, writers don’t run out of things to talk about, or the ability to do so.

All, that being said, I can safely say I have reached an amateur level of camera speak. I plan on relaunching my channel next week. I think I have some good content, (hopefully), at the very least I will be entertaining myself.

And, don’t worry. Yes, there will be new books… soonish.

Who am I? I’m Tiffany Easterling, still an Evilbunny, still a writer.

 


I would berate myself for not updating sooner, but I don’t think like that. I consider, for a moment, that I should/shouldn’t have done something, and move on. Admittedly, I make a lot of mistakes. I will also admit that I’ve been lazy and feeling a strange lack of creativity and enthusiasm.

Yeah, I’m a bum.

However, hopefully, next month I will start updating regularly… I’d start now, but I have a really good excuse… It’s a house environment thing.

I’m also planning on starting a podcast going back to making YouTube videos. Right now, I’m leaning more toward podcast. I think I might be able to entertain… or annoy (depending on how you look at it) a broader audience that way.

Currently, I am back to working on Priestess. I’m very excited for this book and glad that I’m actually making progress. I will just say sometimes my brain does not stay as focused despite my wanting otherwise.

And, that’s pretty much it for my update. So, it’s back to writing and editing.

Who am I?

I’m Tiffany Easterling. Sometimes romance writer, sometimes flibbertigibbet.

 


Let’s take a moment to discuss Nathan Fillion because I got to meet him. And, I got to talk to him for a whole thirty seconds at Dragoncon.

I have this book, my book. One of my first prints of GenesisSpell. It isn’t the copy that’s available now. It’s the first edition, before final copy, and it has lots more grammar mistakes. (My secret shame is that I suck at grammar. Yeah, I know, whole other blog post.) Anyway, I started getting signatures in, said book, riddled with the black marks of my many mistakes. Not just famous people’s signatures, but signatures like the woman who bought the very first book, another writer that was kind and encouraging, the fun guy, with a devastating smile, that will spend all night at a con talking about anime with you. Yes, I do have other signatures in it, from famous actors and voice actors too, but they all have value to me.

So then, there’s me, at Dragoncon, standing in line with no less than five hundred other people, waiting three hours to get Nathan Fillion signature in my book. Did I mention I was cosplaying a female Mal?

Finally, it’s my turn to meet him. And, OMG, he was panting dropping charming. He was engaging, friendly, and genuine. He shook my hand and gave me a gorgeous smile that damn near made my heart stop. Then he said, “I like your outfit.”

Me, I babbled on something about taking care of himself, because con’s are full of nasty. I don’t know why. I just didn’t want this beautiful, charming man succumbing to con crud. He thanked me said he was getting a bit of a migraine, to which I apologized, then I thanked him for his signature, and walked away wondering why I was so concerned with his health.

Then I figured it out.

I fell in love with Nothing Fillion in thirty seconds flat.

And, I didn’t want anything to happen to my new love.

Feeling this way, is very unusual for me. I like being in love with the unobtainable fictional character. I like obsessing and daydreaming over men that don’t exist. Sure, Malcolm Reynolds is completely obsession-worthy, but I never imagined that Nathan Fillion was too.

I’m baffled by my own thought processes and how I let this happen. Not only do I not like real life me, but I have a very definite type.
Nathan Fillion as a sexy, charming personal rule breaker.

Thank God, he only talked to me for thirty seconds, because I’m not sure my heart could take much longer.

Who am I? I’m Tiffany Easterling, science fiction romance writer. I’m also that girl that falls for a charming smile.
