Hi, I'm Sandra Madera. My passion has always been writing. Growing up watching soap operas and playing with doll houses, I dreamed up hundreds of stories in my head everyday. I knew I had a gift for writing when I was in the second grade. I was honored with a prize after writing a fun short story about animals playing baseball, a subject I knew nothing about but was still able to convey an entertaining story.
Currently, I have penned several short stories, including the beloved "Weeping Willow" and "Shattered". I have also authored full-length novels, having written both the Restraint Trilogy and the Weeping Willow Series.
Be sure to follow me on Twitter, check out my blog by clicking on the Blogger button to the right, and visit again to find out what other interesting things I have planned.
In loving memory of my best friend, my dearest companion, my baby boy, Brownie. You will forever be missed... Sleep with the angels, baby. I love you.
I created new cover art for my free short works with the help of stock images in combination with my own artwork.
I want to thank everyone who has been checking in on my blog and website, waiting for updates and new releases. Special thanks to those who enjoyed my writing and felt the need to contact me. I'm always surprised to hear from readers.
First, I would like to announce that I am updating the covers for my shorter works. Every once in a blue moon it is good to update and refresh. As my artistic skills grow and my ability to work with stock increases, I will produce better images for my self-published works.
Secondly, I would like to announce that I have been working on a manuscript that I would like to submit to traditional publishers. Since, that project is nearing a completion and moving into an editing phase. I will have more time to dedicate to Wicked Voices. There have been significant delays in the writing of Wicked Voices. Many personal circumstances have taken up my time since I started writing, and those personal concerns take precedence over any writing projects. Sometimes life takes turns, and those abrupt changes create blockages. Any plans I have made to pick up the pace have failed. I'm hoping that the near future is a bit more conducive to the creative process. I expected to finish Wicked Voices by winter 2016/17, but it is looking like it will be delayed until winter 2017/18.
Thank you for keeping up with updates and giving your feedback to me over social media. It has been great hearing from all of you!
It has been brought to my attention that those who purchased Wicked Love within the first few months of release may have not received Chapter 24. This problem exists only on Nook downloads from BarnesandNoble.com. Kindle, Apple, and Smashwords have no issues with this. No one has emailed me, requesting the chapter, but I looked into it. The chapter is uploaded, but it could have been due to a glitch that it didn't appear on Nook downloads. However, this should be a quick fix. If the chapter is missing from your Nook (.epub) copy, it is as easily as archiving the book and re-downloading it after a few days. The missing chapter will appear.
WHAT I AM UP TO:
- Writing Wicked Voices for winter 2017/2018 projected release.
- Writing a manuscript for submission to traditional publishers.
- Published new shorts on Smashwords that will soon be distributed to other online stores.
- Always looking for bloggers/reviewers to review my works. If you are interested, drop me an email.
