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.

Its not uncommon for authors to make playlists to go along with the books they write. And no, I don’t mean the playlists writers create to concentrate while writing (mine is 90% Lindsey Stirling rock violin when I’m writing in case you were wondering, which I doubt you were).

As many of you know, in my day-to-day life, I’m a full-time writer in a sea of cubicles at an actual organization from 8-5. But on top of that, I find joy in freelancing, blogging and novel writing. Sorry, the blog hasn’t felt as much love lately, but boy am I swamped (in the best, most […]
