Autumn trails & attic styles….

Fall favorites from a wallflower, a waif, and an autumn wanderer….

A collection of autumn styles from Paperwaif featuring warm tones, cozy closet vibes, and fall lines. Featured in A Carolina Affair.

A CAROLINA AFFAIR

Just the rough beginnings of a love affair that represents earthy warm moments, autumn hues, and mix and match creative lines that can be dressed up or down.

STYLE STORMS

Being my favorite season, although my love of autumn was inspired from the east coast and the stunning fall forests of the smoky mountains, I can’t wait to gather, design, and create my latest digital direction, A Carolina Affair, inspired by my years in North Carolina. To get a little inspiration for style lines and layouts, I have gathered and framed some of my favorite finds that have been buried in the back of my closet for some time collecting dust. Warm shades, cozy throws, autumn layers, and boots, boots, boots. Just another Carolina love affair and the styles that bring a creative story to life. Inspired by Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway, these styles along with other autumn moments will be featured in my next magazine. To fall trails and the styles that wander them…. Before I forget, thank you to my better half who designed me the coolest style rack for my office!

An Autumn Love Affair ~ Up Next @Paperwaif

Delivering Autumn Vibes

So…. Very excited for a new year, which I typically begin to outline right about now. Unfortunately, 2020 was not very productive professionally where family moments became priority. Obviously, schooling the bouncing-off-the-wall-monkeys who love to edit my stories was quite a challenge between dyslexia, boredom, and sheer laziness, not to mention I am not the most eloquent instructor despite loving academia, organization, and details. Nothing to fret, I’ve managed to write six really terribly cliche novels that have seen better days, and one horrifyingly exciting thriller that has yet to be determined, all while frantically scrubbing, shuttling, and instructing. I suppose I am accustomed to using eight arms, six eyes, five personalities, and one day to get it all done, which I’m sure nearly everyone out there can relate to. So back to page 122 of my not-yet-titled follow up to Echelon Files. Only three hundred more pages to fail miserably. So thankful for autumn, the prettiest time of year….

Into Autumn

When you know you have finally found home and you just don’t want to let go….

Falling in love….

A Forever Love Affair….

Just remembering these moments along the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Great Smoky Mountains, I want to cry because Carolina is the other love of my life and I miss it so much, especially right now during the prettiest season of the year. Unless you’ve lived their for years and have enjoyed the rainbow of shades that paint the Appalachians throughout the seasons, don’t knock it; it’s amazing! Through Boone, Asheville, and beyond, nowhere else compares when you get to enjoy endless beaches in October and hike the mountains all year long. Of course, an idyllic destination for fall inspiration, style, and wanderlust vibes. With the coolest, hippest country/city tones, it’s the perfect place for anyone who wants to escape and don’t forget the neighbors, Knoxville, Savannah, & Charleston, just to mention a few. I can’t wait to pack the boxes one last time and finally call the east coast home for good! Until then, watch for A Carolina Affair, Paperwaif’s latest magazine featuring one of the more casually cool states in the country…. And don’t forget to check out my Rainbow Edition Book Covers now available at Amazon/Kindle

What’s New @PaperwaifBooks

Never quite satisfied with my work, I decided my book covers needed a major facelift, so I tediously tinkered around until designing simplistic but unique covers that represent each storyline.

Making the most of summer….

Can’t believe summer is almost over! Obviously I am way behind on my professional directions and don’t want to let go of the sunkissed hours that inspire my creative mind. Paperwaif will be moving forward with autumn book sales, a cozy at home magazine featuring a Carolina crush, and updates on every social profile, which hasn’t been done in a long time since socializing makes me cringe and I have very little time on my hands. Sadly, my favorite piece of work, Miss Mannequin will be removed from the market in the next week or two, so I can hopefully better my professional directions and expand on my thriller horror base. Following a decade of toilet humor, I have finally stumbled upon the kind of work that I would like to pursue. Grab a copy while you can @Amazon/Kindle…. To becoming a better writer, designer, and creative waif….

Rainbow Frames Update

Noticing a few pages that just didn’t look right, Rainbow Frames has been updated. And now moving on to Carolina Crush, an autumn magazine featuring cozy caramel styles, a dream destination with the best of both worlds, and a makeshift studio for Paperwaif.

Not So Handsome

Stretch Your Wings


Following a northern moment, I finally put the finishing touches on my Rainbow Edition book covers and will offer them in the upcoming weeks, which I am very excited about. After purchasing a few copies of my originals, I was quite disappointed and truly hate my previous work. Not enough color, pop, or simplicity. Unfortunately, my favorite novel, Miss Mannequin – and the most thrilling story that I have written to date – will not have a new cover until a later date, and the novel will be removed from the market later this month. I am at a point where I have to move forward and reach other opportunities, which I would like to attempt with this particular novel. That said, I cannot believe I even somewhat claim to be a writer. Do others in this fickle industry screw up so often? Yes, I understand everything is a f*cking learning experience but how the hell do you misspell “handsome” and not notice for months? How does every program also miss the word? While an amazing speller at school, I somehow manage to screw, twist, turn, and f*ck over every piece of work that I have ever written. Do other writers have this issue and at what point do you accept that your work will never be good enough and it’s time to quit? Disappointments all around and a complete waste of a decade. To not being a writer but a space wasting zombie…. On a happier note, Rainbow Frames now available….

Northern Exposures

Finding Forest….


Need a break from reading, writing, and creating?! Often, frustrations overwhelm my creative mind when little seems to be working and I just want to get away from it all despite outlining personal deadlines that rarely get met. And another move is just around the corner, so enjoying those final few wanderlust moments calms my restless tendencies before the storm barrels over. Northern exposures from the Hiawatha Trails and Coeur d’Alene, a picturesque lake/mountain town that represents the northwest that I know and love…

Nearby points of interest: Sandpoint, Idaho, Priest Lake, & Spokane, Washington.

A Moment In Time

A sweet but darker young adult romance novel featuring an elite gymnast, a carefree teen, and a difficult situation that is tough to overcome. When perfection isn’t good enough….

“Three are involved. Two are deeply in love. But only one lives to remember.”

ARYN LANE

Dear Reader,

Thank you for taking the time to read my book that was inspired by relationships, love, and the many hardships that couples face while walking along the path of life. As I venture toward different directions and learn from past mistakes, my ideas have broadened to include a little mystery and drama. A Moment in Time is one of my personal favorites, for it is my first stand-alone novel, and it represents young love, one of the more trying times in a person’s life. A combination of light and dark flows throughout as there are sweet moments but tenderness as well. This novel felt easier to write since it wasn’t attached to a series or inspired by places that have impacted my own direction. I chose to start from scratch and provide settings and backgrounds that don’t exist anywhere on a map, and I wanted to explore two different worlds as they come together to create a passionate outcome. As a child who spent many years dancing, ice skating, and flipping around the family farm, I like so many others have always been entranced by the world of elite sports and the young women who shine under the spotlight. But like many industries, there is always an unpleasant side that is rarely seen. When I first drafted this story seven years ago, I couldn’t have predicted the future events that currently overshadow the glitz and glamour. I was more interested in bringing forward a love story about an average boy who falls in love with a girl that lives in a very different kind of world. As an author, writing has become a part of my daily routine, and perhaps, the most relaxing part of my day. Piecing together ideas and storylines allows me to progressively move forward while learning so many new things. Though hard, and very discouraging at times, I welcome the challenges ahead and am excited to share future work. I appreciate the recognition and support that everyone has offered me. If you enjoy my novel, please leave a review. And the journey continues…

Sincerely, A. Lane

Bookworms rejoice!
