Author Interview: Tianna Holley

authorblock_holley

This weeks interview is with Tianna Holley, author of “Unexpected Metamorphosis”. Tianna Holley lives outside of Atlanta with her husband and children and has always been an avid reader of fantasy novels. She began writing poetry and short stories in her youth but did not pursue her passion for writing until later in life.

When she’s not typing on her laptop or running after her children, she can usually be found in her kitchen baking and teaching others how to cook with healthy and natural ingredients.

Life

Life really has a way of testing you and stacking things up. I am not going to dive into all the details but my life lately has been, well, beyond full. So many things going on and going wrong has really challenged me lately. I have barely known which side is up with everything that has been happening. Needless to say my writing has suffered from all of it. My mind just hasn’t been in the right creative mind space that it needs to be in. I’ve sat down numerous times to write on Why We Start Fires with very little work coming out of it. I just cannot seem to concentrate on much of anything right now and it just drives me even crazier.

The end of all the madness is not quiet here yet but I am determined to find my way back through this seemingly endless forest and come back to where I need to be. Thank you all for sticking around and with me through the silence and I hope to be able to share more of the world of Why We Start Fires soon.

Tweaks and updates

ell if you have not yet noticed I’ve been doing a bit of tweaks around the old website already. I’ve added in a fancy little letter box at the beginning of each post for a little more visual presentation and I am looking into why some don’t display on the main page but display in the full post. I’ve also gone through and cut down some of my longer blog entries (to see the entire post you have to click “read more” now) to help with the amount of scrolling you would have to do on mobile devices.

Lastly I have added a full portfolio for my graphic design so you can see what designs I have created throughout the years. I decided not to put up the thousands of concepts and random designs that never really saw the light of day since, like I said, there are thousands of them. You can visit it here: http://www.bradcovey.com/portfolio/ . There are 67 designs in there but for some reason it is only showing the first ten and the pages are not working. A fix will happen hopefully soon.
