Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Favorite Shows

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Favorite Shows

 

So it’s been AWHILE since I did TTT. I used to love it, and now that I have a little more time on my time, I’m going to TRY to slowly start doing it again from time to time. This week we get to deviate from books! The topic is your top ten favorite books or movies (be it fantasy, rom-com, etc.) I’m going to let you guys into my CRAZY DVR schedule for a look at my top ten favorite currently airing shows.

1. SUPERNATURAL. What can I say? WINCHESTER BOYS. Ghost hunting. Demons. All manner of creepy things that go bump in the night, BUT ALSO: humor. Hilarious characters. STRONG females. Relationships, friendships. MYTHOS, lore, urban legends.

Swoon-worthy Saturdays – #3

 

I’m moving along with ONE SONG AWAY and I decided I wanted a way to keep you guys involved in my writing process, as well as give some teasers in regards to what to expect from Sophie-Claire and Jake’s story.

Making of a Book Cover: AS YOU TURN AWAY

Making of a Book Cover: AS YOU TURN AWAY

 

I’ve been promising this post for a LONG time, and it’s finally here! I’m going to give y’all a sneak peek into how my book cover was made. As an indie author working with a cover designer — and a wonderful one, I might add — I was super lucky to have an incredible amount of input on the cover from start to finish. Marie and I worked closely from the first ideas to the first proofs, to final tweaks. She was so patient with me as I went through fonts, banged my head against the keyboard when nothing looked right in my stock image searches, and tried to express myself through gibberish as the cover started coming together.

A year after graduating from high school, nineteen-year-old Emma Ward feels lost. She has spent most of her life trying to please her frigid, miserable mother – studying hard, getting good grades, avoiding the whole teenage rebellion thing – and now she feels she has no identity beyond that. Because she spent so many years working hard and planning every moment of her life, she doesn’t have any friends, has never had a boyfriend, and basically doesn’t know who she is or what she really wants from life. Working two part-time jobs to …

Show Me How Big Your Brave Is

 

June is LGBTQ Pride month, and knowing that, I wanted to touch a bit on my own coming out experience, and where I’m at, about a year and a half later. This month we celebrate our history, and those who came before us and championed for LGBTQ rights. We pause to think on where we’re at now, and where we want to be. We pause to celebrate the progress toward equality, toward the day when the term “gay marriage,” or “gay rights” becomes simply “marriage,” and “rights.”

Sometimes I feel like I clawed my way here. “Here” isn’t perfect or easy at times, but it’s been worth it.

I came out in November of 2012 — to my family. I had to, …
