So You’ve Decided to Self-Publish…

 

I can’t swear this is exactly how it happened, but this is how it felt. – Joey Potter

The Difference In a First and a Second Book

The Difference In a First and a Second Book

 

Last night, I did the impossible, again: I finished a draft of a book. And not just any book, but the book I’m publishing this fall! Let’s all take a life break and dance for a minute…

Yesssss. All the exciting! 

But along with exciting, comes some lessons learned. Lessons I wanted to share with you guys today, in hopes it might help someone. So I present my silly, somewhat sarcastic, occasionally serious…

Things I Learned Between Writing My First and Second Books Post of Seriousness. 

I had an amazing time writing AS YOU TURN AWAY. I cried approximately 1000 times while writing it. I laughed a lot, too. I can’t wait to bring y’all Reece and Ethan’s stories! Writing AYTA was …
