Here is the Whiteout Cover Edition for Sameness—and I think it's one of my favorites in the collection.
The colors are White and Gold for Whiteout, but Sameness took on more blues than I originally wanted... and I couldn't be happier.
Nine months of sleep, three months of being awake, that's how the year goes for us. Half of us wake up tired and sore while all of us wake up smelling of either lotion or bleach. But during the nine month period of hibernation, I woke up.
And now I know why I always wake up sore and reeking of bleach.
SAMENESS, WHAT WE STRIVED FOR SO LONG TO ACHIEVE. BUT WHAT IF YOU'RE DESTINED TO BE DIFFERENT?
Humans have always strived for equality, for everyone to be treated equal. We finally reached the point of this harmony, this level of sameness--and everyone is happy. Many, many generations later.
But what happens when, in a wold of people knocked down and stood up to be exactly alike, a person wants to be different? What if they're destined to be unique in a world of strict equality?

What’s something that terrifies you?
For a lot of people, it’s the ocean. Which is understandable. But growing up, I was never afraid of it. I wanted to explore it, to dive down to its murky depths and discover things no one else had before.
I guess if you’ve read The One-Hundred or Waterlogged, or any of my water books, you could see that.
I wanted to be a marine biologist or an oceanographer, which includes taking pictures, so I would probably have been better as a marine biologist.
Anyway. College wasn’t for me. Which is fine. It isn’t for everyone. Not including being force-fed lies and listening to teachers bash what I believed, I just… wasn’t made for college.
So I began writing. In 2014, I self published my first book, The Vampire’s Carnival. I wrote it in 22 days and didn’t understand much about formatting, cover design, or really even editing. Eight years, a Watty, and 57 books later, I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Now what I’m afraid of is not achieving my dream: becoming a stay-at-home full-time writer.
But I will make it. I know I will, because I’m declaring it. Jesus says you will have what you say, so I say I will make enough money off my books to live off of it.
Eight years… that’s a long time. Some people give up after one. But here I am. And I’m not going away.
Join me on my writing journey. And for those of you who have supported me since the beginning, or, heck, even at all, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
SO. I didn’t finish Go. Have too many things I want to do in the book and not a smooth way to get it all together. Not to mention February was the last month for the book boxes, so I was kind of focused on that. I also started up DoorDash for extra money, so you could say I’ve been a bit busy!
Either way, here’s the skinny: March, I was supposed to finish Damian. But as February came to an end, I realized I’d written a whole book for Damian, and I left off on quite a cliffhanger. Long story short, Damian is finished and is the beginning of a spin-off trilogy about Damian.
Yes, that means more One-Hundred books.
I hope you’re excited. I have 9 books I want to write for The One-Hundred universe, so wish me luck. I hope you look forward to reading stories from Damian, Morgiana… and even Lily-flor.
Oh, yeah. You read that right.
So Damian is done. When will it be released? When I finish the second book. I want to get in the habit of finishing the next book before releasing the book before it. Example: I won’t release Replay: Peridot before I’m done with Replay: Pearl and so on. This way, the people reading them won’t have to wait four years like they did with Stop; Go.
*Couch cough* Sorry, y’all.
Anyway. I will continue working on Go this month, as well as Pearl. I have some cool ideas I want to implement somehow. I’ve finished drafting the outline of Go, BUT it will probably go through SEVERAL revisions before I’m happy with it. Good thing is I know where I want it to end. If that changes, oh well. It’s happened before and it’ll happen again. It isn’t the end of the world.
Anyway! Don’t forget to vote on the next book box here.
Have a wonderful day!
