This past weekend I had the pleasure of participating in the Elgin Literary Festival. I participated in a panel, presented a workshop, met readers, chatted with aspiring writers, sold books, and caught up with friends. A big thanks to Karly Kirkpatrick and the other facilitators who put the event together.
Today, I'm over at Uncommon YA telling Two Truths and a Lie. Stop by and see if you can pick out the lie!
Update on ENTWINED:
Developmental edits are complete for ENTWINED. I can now kick my feet up and relax.
Okay, not really, but it's a good feeling to know my amazing developmental editor and I met our deadline. Entwined is now in the heads of the head editor. Time will tell if additional tweaks are needed.
Today's teasers are from EMBRACE, book one in the series.
I followed two chatty sophomores into the classroom and almost lost what little control I had left over my emotions when I saw Mark sitting at our table. I was sure my face turned a few shades of red as I fought the urge to throw something at him and snarled, “Hello.” […] It took me a few seconds, but I managed to pull myself together after that. This would be my only chance to yank out Mark’s hair. The thought cheered me up.
