The One Where I Write About the Journey, Not the Destination

Confession: Sometimes I write messy books.

My first one, AS YOU TURN AWAY, is a messy book. My main character goes through some shit, and my hero tries to lend her the strength to breathe and stand back up, until she can learn the strength and confidence she needs to stand on her own beside him. Quinn is grieving, and not very well. She’s torn between what she wants, and what she’s been told. She wants to chase happiness, but she’s terrified of it. With AS YOU TURN AWAY, I didn’t think about how Quinn would be perceived. It never occurred to me that because she was messy and real and scared …

Top Ten Tuesday: The One with 2015 Excitement

Top Ten Tuesday:
Top Ten Books I’m Excited for in 2015

 

 TTT is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, we squee over books in a weekly topic. 

Wow, so. Limiting this to ten was almost impossible, but somehow I managed it. I could talk about the  2015 books I’m looking forward to ALL NIGHT LONG and probably have before, but these are the ones I chose for this week’s topic. If YOU did a TTT, be sure to link me to it so I can comment and we can squee together!

The One with ONE SONG AWAY Release Day Fun!

The One with ONE SONG AWAY Release Day Fun!

 

Today is the day! The day my second book releases into the world. It will be in the hands of readers soon – maybe even in YOUR hands, yes you, reading this. For so many months, ONE SONG AWAY was just an idea in the back of my head, then it was a draft, and then…it was a book. Now it’s yours. Yours, the readers who will turn the pages and read all about my Southern rebel belle Sophie-Claire.

I can’t change a word of ONE SONG AWAY from this point, but I had such a rewarding experience writing it, that I’m not sure I *would* make any changes. It’s not a perfect book, and for some, it’s a book they …

Blog Series: I Support #WeNeedDiverseBooks (Part 2)

As it turns out, I have a lot of thoughts about why diverse books are needed. Like, 1000 words a lot, and that was me forcing myself to stop. So I’m going to make this a series, of probably two more posts: one dealing with the few diverse books I read/the ones I’ve been lucky enough to read as an adult, and how they helped me heal, and another talking about the diverse kind of books *I* personally want to write. Maybe you guys will read them. Part One is here

 

Why We Need Diverse Books, Part 2: The Lack of Diverse Books

 

So here’s the deal: if I ever have children, I want them to …

The One with the November Recap

The One with the November Recap

 

 

*slides in, skidding a bit* How the heck is it NOVEMBER? Seriously, I’m halfway done with my Christmas shopping and it is just mind-boggling, BUT I feel like I’ve got sort of a handle on this author-blogger-working-life thing right now. I’m either doing really awesome or failing so well I can’t even tell. Heh.

Anyone’s guess as to if I’ll remember to do a monthly recap from now on, but I’ve talked a lot this month here and in other places, so I wanted to do a quick recap of what all has happened here, around the Internet, and for friends.

First and probably the biggest news, Read more »

Introducing Reece Walker from AS YOU BREATHE AGAIN

Introducing Reece Walker from AS YOU BREATHE AGAIN

One of my author pals, Becka, asked me to join her in a blog hop. The deets: we get to interview one of our characters, ask them some fun questions, and YOU, the readers, get to know them a bit better. Becka interviewed Beau Grady from her upcoming BETWEEN EVERYTHING AND US, and I laughed and squee’ed while reading her interview.

I immediately knew who I wanted to interview – Reece from my summer 2015 book, AS YOU BREATHE AGAIN. When I wrote my first book, Reece was supposed to be just a supporting character, but he sort of stole the show away from Jonah, his younger brother. I can’t wait to write …
