When I was a writing consultant for the University Writing Center at Appalachian State University, I often came up with weird ways to remember the differences between confusing words for my clients. One of my regular clients once said that I should have been a third grade teacher instead of a journalist (hmm… I guess […]
So my lovely author friend Tasha Raulerson, whom I co-host a new webcast with, tagged me in a fun blog hop where essentially I just flip through my current manuscript and the first place my cursor lands, I need to take the phrase and that’s a new faux title for my book– EIGHT TIMES. Could […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I’ve been trying not to blog too much because I was having trouble keeping my current happenings a secret. But guys— I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT! And before you even think it– NO. I am not pregnant. But my Book Baby is one step closer to being born. And I have news… I HAVE AN AGENT! […]
I was tagged by my new author friend Rachel Simon for the Liebster Award. I have to answer her ten questions about my work-in-progress and then tag some more people and give them my own questions. Since THE TRUTH ABOUT TWO-SHOES recently completed it’s agent round for Pitch Wars (more on that at a later date), […]
The actual agent round of Pitch Wars is tomorrow. To celebrate, I decided to put all my dorky “Pitch Wars the Musical” vlogs on here so people can point and laugh and forget about their crazy amounts of stress probably going to happen over the next couple of days. But basically, every once in a […]
Many of the Pitch Wars mentees and alternates organized a fun blog hop for us all to kick off the agent round with a big bang, and I’m honored to get to participate. Not only should you read my post below, but feel free to hop around to the other amazingly talented writers being featured this […]
Whoa…whoa..whoa. I know. You’re probably thinking, “NaNoWriMo? What about Pitch Wars?” Don’t worry. I’m definitely very much still involved in Pitch Wars (read about it here), and actually my entry was finalized last night! I’m in the home stretch of making “final” tweaks (well, final before I acquire my future agent who may have some […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Well, I’ve been tagged in another author-y blog hop! I’ve been tagged by the lovely Kathleen S. Allen for the “Writerly Meme” which is all about my main character from my latest novel. Surprisingly, the TRUTH ABOUT TWO-SHOES isn’t my latest novel (that’s right! Already have another in the works). But because Pitch Wars is approaching and […]
Don’t judge me, people. You can a learn a lot from Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews in all situations. Plus my inner tween really loved The Princess Diaries when it came out. (And for those who are behind on what Pitch Wars is and how I’m in it…click here) Okay, so it’s one month into […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I’ve been putting off this post because I’m honestly not sure what to say and was, at first, slightly afraid it was a mistake. During the Pitch Wars application process, I got to meet so many cool and talented authors whose books are AMAZING. When close to 1250 authors applied with only 75 getting a main slot, […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
