It's taken me twice as long to write and caused me four times as much mental anguish. This is partly because I feel like I've… Continue reading Revision Trenches

Signal Boost!

I'll admit it, I'm a cheerleader. Not the kind you remember from high school with the short skirts and pom-poms. No, I'm more of a cheerleader at life. I LOVE encouraging my friends in their endeavors. I'll happily comment on their wedding photos, coo at their baby pictures, and congratulate their job promotion announcements. When a… Continue reading Signal Boost!

Secret Hunger Proof Copy!

https://youtu.be/-2129ij8eg0 I will probably write an actual post sometime later this week. But, for now - check it out! Okay, I'll admit, I got a little shiver when I opened the box and saw the physical copy of my book for the first time.

Secret Hunger’s First Week

Wow. Can you believe it's already been a week since I published Secret Hunger? This first week out of the gate I concentrated on uploading my print files to CreateSpace, reserved a place for my book launch party on June 13th, and wrote a few dozen book bloggers asking if they would consider reviewing my… Continue reading Secret Hunger’s First Week

ARC Contest Results

Just a quick post today. I recorded the drawing for my digital ARC contest. Take a look! Hopefully it's not too cheesy...this was my first time ever recording myself and I was a little nervous. https://youtu.be/JphwcFiy6Kg

Friday Follow-up

I came across this very helpful article that suggested I should write a couple of different lengths of "about… Continue reading Friday Follow-up
