Guest Post: Poetry Tea-Time!

I’m guest-posting over on be, mama. be about a ritual we have in our house called Poetry Tea-Time. For those of you who are intimidated by poetry and fearful I’m about to break out some Emily Dickinson on you, breathe easy. Although at one time I thought I’d pursue poetry, and not fiction, it becameContinue reading “Guest Post: Poetry Tea-Time!”

Book Club: Wilsonville, AL

In the past I’ve posted about attending book clubs on Facebook, but it occurred to me that I should take a moment and post here, too! And this past week I was lucky enough to attend a book club as “The Author.” (Put that way it sounds a bit pretentious, doesn’t it?) Book clubs reallyContinue reading “Book Club: Wilsonville, AL”

Celebrating an Accomplishment!

Can you guess what this is, dear friends? That’s right! It’s the finished draft of the novel I’ve been working on!

The Launch Party of Trespassers – 11.1.14

About the time I first learned to read is about the time I knew I wanted to be a writer.

First Review on NetGalley!

My publisher forwarded my first review posted on NetGalley today and it is a good one! (To put it simply, NetGalley is a site publishers use to give booksellers, librarians, reviewers digital access to books.) I know not everyone will like Trespassers – I’m trying to remind myself of that all the time – becauseContinue reading “First Review on NetGalley!”

The Size of the Effort

Last month I opened a box that had just been delivered expecting a gift for my youngest who turned four. Instead, I was quite surprised to see it was a box of books. MY books, or more specifically, my Advanced Reading Copies (ARCs) which I, or a publicist, send out to reviewers. I wish IContinue reading “The Size of the Effort”
