Friday Update

Hey, guys. Sorry I've been so scarce around here lately (all my blogs start this way, don't they?), but it looks like I'm going to continue to be pretty scarce until April. Edits for The Shattered Dark are due at the end of the month, so I have three weeks to make...

McKenzie Goes to France! And Audiobook Cover!

I'm so excited to announce that both The Shadow Reader and The Shattered Dark will be published in France by Brangelonne Editions! I don't have more details than that, but I've been doing a  happy dance since I heard the news. I think it's awesome that more people...

Hey Look, It’s an Update! And an Excerpt!

I feel like I've just been thrashed by the In-Between. I'm not sure if I have that line in either of my books, but I should because I'm sure this must be the way McKenzie feels after a particularly rough fissure. Worn out. Spent. Nope, I haven't been sick. I've just...

Shark Tank and One Sole

  A few years ago when my husband and I were living in London, we started watching a program called Dragon's Den. We really enjoyed it, and not just because it was the only thing on besides Friends (seriously, they showed Friends all the time over there!), but it...

Quick Monday Update

(Grr. My laptop just froze up on me. Had to rewrite this post. Usually, it only freezes when I move it, but I swear I didn't do anything other than use the keyboard. This laptop is only 2.5 years old. It shouldn't have these problems!)   I haven't finished last...

Late Update and 1,000 Goodreads Ratings!

Sometime between Sunday and Monday, I passed the 1,000 rating mark on Goodreads. Whoohoo! Thank you everyone who's read and rated The Shadow Reader. You all totally rock! I really wanted to have a swag giveaway when I reached the 1k milestone - and when I reached the...

Exciting News and Even More Exciting News

I'm wearing my pre-pregnancy jeans! And I can still breath! Whoop! That's super exciting, but I have even more super exciting news. Guess who's story is going to be made into an audiobook? McKenzie's story!!!* Yes, that's right. Tantor Audio will be producing the...

Newsletter Contest Winner and Monday Update!

My second quarterly newsletter went out last week. The contest question was "What is your favorite scene from The Shadow Reader?" I loved reading your responses! Since I had more than one person interested in everyone else's answers, I thought I'd share them here. If...

Monday Update

Posting late today, so this will be quick. Had a good but busy weekend. I was able to get some writing done, thanks to my wonderful husband who watched the boys and kicked me out of the house so I could work. Also was able to do some fun stuff, like hang out with...

Amazon Taxes, Aggie Sippy Cups, and Emails

Amazon Taxes: I discovered last weekend that, since June of 2011, every Kindle book purchase I've made has been charged a sales tax. As I said on Twitter, I'm not exactly upset at being taxed - I think Amazon will have to tax all purchases soon - but I am annoyed...

Birthdays and Page Proofs and Sad/Awkward Email

It's been a frustratingly unproductive week at my house. I was supposed to spend it getting ready for the boys' first birthday, which is Saturday, but they both got super sick at the beginning of the week. (Boy #1 had a 103 degree fever Sunday night!).  #2 came down...

Giveaway: Amanda Bonilla’s BLOOD BEFORE SUNRISE

My writing buddy, Amanda Bonilla, has a new book out today! It's the sequel to SHAEDES OF GRAY, a new urban fantasy series with a kickbutt heroine who is NOT a vampire or a werewolf (not that anything is wrong with vamps or weres - love them both!). I love the world...

How I Know Things Are Finally Getting Better

You know how this blog has been so quiet, and how most of the posts always begin without an apology for not posting more? I've very much been a frazzled mother of twins attempting to learn how to be a mom, a wife, and a writer all at the same time, and I've just...

It’s Friday! Here, have some randomness.

1. I found myself on the phone with an insurance company today. I also found myself wanting to strangle the company's automated voice-rec system. It was awful. After screaming "Operator!" several times and getting asked the same irrelevant questions again and again, I...

Monthly Goals

Yep, yep. I'm totally regressing here. No more weekly goals because, well, I obviously can't keep up with posting that much, even when I do accomplish them. So I'm going to attempt to do monthly goals. Not sure if it'll work out, but hey, it's worth a shot, right?...

A Few Random Things

Two weeks ago, when I wrote down my weekly goals, I forgot one tiny detail: I was leaving town for a week and a half. All my goals pretty much flew out the window when I remembered that, and I spent my time scrambling to get ready instead of crossing things off my...
