The One with As You Breathe Again Extras

I HAVE A BOOK COMING OUT TOMORROW.*deep breath*So, here’s the deal. Books need help from readers to get into the hands of MORE readers. That’s why we, as authors, say that reviews are SO important. They can help a book soar, or without them, drown. I’ve seen a few passionate readers champion a book and help it take off and become something. And that? Is amazing.Readers are powerful. Don’t you ever forget it.Here’s where I […]

The One with 2016 Book News

*confetti parade*2016 is here! With the new year comes *drumroll* BOOK NEWS.Real talk. 2015 was a weird year for me, writing wise. I wanted to write three books. I wrote one, one that I had started in 2013, wrote half of in 2014, scrapped, then came back to in 2015. As You Breathe Again poured out of me in two months, and it’s the book I’m most proud of to date.I found my place. My […]

As You Breathe Again Cover Reveal

Now that this day is actually, finally here, I’m a bit at a loss for words. Writing As You Breathe Again was a struggle at times, a joy, and an experience that saw me change as a writer and a person. Working with Maggie Hall and seeing this cover come to life, more beautiful than I’d imagined it could be was such a rewarding experience. (Quickly, thank you to Maggie for creating this cover and to […]

The One Where I’ve Still Got a Lot of Fight Left In Me

Dear 2015 Molli,This time last year, you did Susannah Conway’s Unraveling the Year Ahead for 2015. You had amazingly high hopes. You decided your year of the word would be “indomitable,” and that you’d live it. And live it you did, in some unexpected ways. There are going to be times this year when you’ll want to walk away from writing, when you can’t force, cajole, or bargain the words out of your heart or head […]

About Time

 A few weeks ago, something happened that if you’d asked me before that moment, I wouldn’t have believed could ever happen: I ended two very toxic friendships. These people had been in my life for several years, and although our formerly close friendships had soured, taking a toll on all of us, I hadn’t been ready to end things. I should have been. When I was constantly getting hurt, constantly afraid to speak my mind […]

An Open Letter to @Teen

This post is in response to Teen’s homophobic article about Teen Wolf fans and fanfiction, found here. (Using a Do Not Link version doesn’t add to the site’s traffic/boost.) The headline and wording within the article has since been altered to save face. This piece is inspired by author Tess Sharpe’s letter to Teen’s editor. Dear Teen associate editor Kaitlin or to whom it may concern, You recently published an article claiming Teen Wolf fans who write […]

Our Stories Aren’t Agendas

Last night, a well-known author criticized the ongoing conversation for diversity in books, specifically in KidLit (YA, MG, and Children’s books). I won’t link to her profile or her comments specifically, because others have and will, and this, unfortunately, is yet another incident in an ongoing problem. (I will name her though: Meg Rosoff.)This author claims that we don’t need more diverse books. That we have enough already. That there are “hundreds, thousands of them.” […]
