saying hello!

Hello strangers! I cannot believe it’s been four months since my last blog post. Much has changed and just as much has stayed the same. There’s not much to report on the book front. I just turned my third round of revisions in to my agent—yes, my third! Melissa (agent) really wants the book to […]

I’m still here!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a blog. I’m sorry about that, but things have been crazy. Today I’ll update you on what I’ve been doing and what’s next for me. The last time I wrote, in mid-February, I announced that I’d signed with a literary agent. Shortly after I posted that blog, I […]

I got an agent! (Part Two)

Yesterday, I told you why I decided to seek an agent after so many years. Today, I’ll share a little bit about what it was like for me in the query trenches. I’d hoped to start querying in September, 2018 but revisions of the book took me longer than expected. My next goal was “by […]

I got an agent! (Part One)

I made a big announcement on social media yesterday: I signed with a literary agent! Since I’ve already had seven books published, some of you might wonder if I’ve already published seven books without an agent, why get one now? Or maybe you assumed I already had an agent. I tried to get an agent […]

2018: Year in Review

As 2018 comes to a close, I thought I’d post my year in review. I cannot believe how quickly the year flew by, although every year seems to pass quicker than the last. It’s scary, yet it doesn’t stop me from constantly looking forward to something in the future rather than making sure to appreciate […]

Build me up Buttercup

Every so often, I get down on myself and I vow to be more positive, accepting, and appreciative of who I am. I considered writing down the qualities I like about myself, much like people jot down “grateful” lists. And then I decided to not only write the list, but to post it as a […]

Idle October

I sent my latest book to three beta readers this weekend after already doing a heavy round of edits with a critique partner. There’s nothing left for me to do right now besides wait—something I’m not very good at.  I asked my beta readers to try to get the book back to me by the […]

Weekly (er, Monthly) update

Remember that blog post I wrote a couple months back where I promised to blog much more often? Yes, that one. You’ve probably realized by now that I lied. I really tried, but time (and life) got away from me and a weekly blog post slipped through my fingers like sand from the beach vacation I haven’t […]

I will never stop.

Today marks the four-year anniversary of the day I lost my best friend, Alan, to cancer. July has been hard for me since he’s been gone. The long Fourth of July weekend has become less about day drinking and fireworks than it is a reminder of the day I spent getting drunk with a friend […]
