I don’t think there’s any easy way to say this, so I suppose I’ll just have to say it. Fairytale will not be released this August. Subsequently, I will also be going on a blogging hiatus. I know I’ve mentioned (and it’s probably been obvious), that I’ve been lagging on updating and blog-hopping lately, but it’s finally become too much for me. I had a lot of high hopes for next month, for my career as an author, for my goals and life in general, but it looks like I was hoping for a little bit too much, too soon. I need a break. I hateRead More →

Another book review!!!! Alright, I definitely see why bloggers do so many of these, they’re fun to write!! And this book, in particular, I was SO excited to read! I mean….hello, a Beauty and the Beast retelling? I think I hurt myself from signing up so fast. Unfortunately, as I knew would eventually happen, I hit my first dud. I suppose I just didn’t think it would happen so quickly, yet here we are. Leaving a less than glowing review is extremely intimidating, and it took me a long time to figure out how I was going to handle this. How did I want toRead More →

Wow, was June the longest month in the universe, or what? I guess I shouldn’t complain. With my life rapidly withering away from me faster than the speed of light, I suppose I should be happy when time starts to last until oblivion. What? What do you mean we’re already a week into July? Shhhhh, just look the other way…shhhhhh… Glimmer: 12k Total: 12k Boooo, I was so close to doubling my output from last month! Oknotreally, but STILL. It’s kind of funny, but I can literally feel myself slowing down. It’s like every new novel is a brand new car, and when I first startRead More →

We have reached the halfway point of 2018! Is your mind blown yet? I know mine is. So I like the idea of checking in every so often on my yearly goals to see if I’m on track, what might need adjusting and how I’m feeling about it all as a whole. Last year I didn’t really do this as my goal could be vaguely summed up as WRITE MOAR, but for 2018 I decided to go with a more concrete list. And as we are just about 2 weeks away from July 1st, I thought this the perfect time to give myself a littleRead More →

I’m doing a book review ya’ll!!! I’m so excited and so nervous! My first ever ARC! And my first book review! And my first time reading an ebook! Aaaaaaaah!! I’m growing up so quickly, aren’t you proud of me? To be honest, this is all so extremely intimidating! How do you guys do it!?!?!?? And given the fact that my blog is still so small, I never thought I’d actually get approved for an ARC, but I really wanted to try and push my boundaries, so I hobbled on over to NetGalley and started applying! Imagine my shock when I was actually approved! So hereRead More →

Okay, where did my spring go? No, for real. Is it like that everywhere where springtime lasts for maybe two weeks and then BOOMSUMMER. I don’t mean to complain or anything, BUT MY BRAIN IS MELTING. How am I supposed to get any writing done??? I’ll just be over here scooping up the last of my gray matter and trying not to pass out, thanks. Methinks it’s time to petition the world to let May last forever and make June go away (also, subsequently, taking my birthday along with it, because man am I tired of getting old). Oh well, it was nice while itRead More →

Everybody loves confessions, right? Something about spilling our deepest, darkest secrets always seems to get the excitement buzzing, doesn’t it? I’m not sure what it is, but realizing that other people are just as flawed and screwed up as I am is always so appealing. Or maybe it’s not that serious and we’re just talking books, here. That’s okay too. Well, now it’s my turn to join in the fun. Time to get down and dirty and reveal to you my deepest, darkest, most private EVER Bookish Confessions. I Hate Hardbacks Okay fine, that’s not true. I actually really like hardback books. BUT. What I hateRead More →

BREAKING NEWS: I’m obsessed with fairytales! I know, shocker, right? You would think after twenty(-something) odd years I’d have grown out of this by now, but no. I know most folks are pretty sick of the thousandth rendition of Cinderella and Snow White, but I say BRING ‘EM ON! It’s no secret that Beauty and the Beast is my all-time favorite fairytale, and authors could write about it till even the cows don’t want to come home anymore and I still wouldn’t get sick of it. But. That is not what we’re going to talk about today. Instead, I’m turning my attention to the still-somewhat-common-but-not-quite-TOO-commonRead More →

You heard it first, folks! I’m on AUTHORTUBE!! Oh happy day, oh happy day!!! Despite the fact that I have never once mentioned Authortube even once on my channel, it’s something I’ve been excited to try out for a really, really, really long time. Up until now I’ve been just a little bit too chicken to try it out, but like all things 2018, this is the year of Taking Chances! Of Trying New Things!  Of Not Being Scared! So here I am with my shiny new channel and you should absolutely so check it out and subscribe. But first, real quick… What is Authortube? AuthortubeRead More →

April showers are over, people! April showers! And I am so ready for some May flowers, let me tell you. Because flowers are pretty. And flowers mean BUNNIES. I feel like 2018 is really starting to come into its own, you know? Instead of the sad trickle off of the dumpster-fire that was 2017, it’s starting to leave its mark as its OWN year. And good things too, because boy howdy, do we need a fresh start. Bad things have happened in 2018, but for the first tim,e I feel like real CHANGE is happening. Big changes. Changes way outside the scope of this littleRead More →
