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.

So the entries are in and the waiting begins. For those of you who are just now hearing about this, you can read my earlier post about how I entered the TRUTH ABOUT TWO SHOES into Pitch Wars this year.

I was recently tagged in a blog hop by the lovely E.G. Moore who I met through the ‘In With the New’ (#NewAgent) Twitter contest, so I figured I should jump in on the fun too and discuss the book I’ve been slaving over recently, THE TRUTH ABOUT TWO SHOES. What is the name of […]
