Pitch Wars 2017 #PimpMyBio

This is my first year participating in Pitch Wars or even knowing much of anything about it. This time last year I was completely out of the writing loop, as I had given myself the summer off of my MA in English and Creative Writing program and decided to skip out on Camp NaNoWriMo becauseContinue reading “Pitch Wars 2017 #PimpMyBio”

Camp NaNoWriMo April 2016

Since apparently NaNoWriMo is the only time I can convince myself to set aside writing time, I will be participating in Camp NaNo this April. I am excited to use this opportunity to hopefully finish out the manuscript I started in November. I passed the 50k word mark for NaNoWriMo and I think another 30kContinue reading “Camp NaNoWriMo April 2016”

Award Nomination

I found out yesterday that my short story “Pyg the Tinker” was nominated for a Write Well Award. I have no idea when I’ll find out whether I won but I am super excited. If I win, my story will be included in a print anthology that is actually available from retailers. “Pyg the Tinker”Continue reading “Award Nomination”

New Acceptance

I got word that my short story, Pyg the Tinker (which is a steampunk-esque take on the Pygmalion myth) will be featured in the Summer Issue of Quantum Fairy Tales! This should go to remind me that your work can’t be published unless you actually submit it. Which means I need to get back inContinue reading “New Acceptance”

To Marry a Scottish Laird

My most recent review is up at All About Romance (although I’m late in posting this blog). To Marry A Scottish Laird by Lynsay Sands This book wins the award for the longest I have ever attempted to avoid having to read a review book. For roughly half a year I have been trying toContinue reading “To Marry a Scottish Laird”

Small Incentives

I had the fantastic opportunity to spend this weekend at the RT Convention here in Dallas. RT is hosted by the magazine of the same name (formerly Romantic Times) and brings together writers, readers, and reviewers of the romance community. I won’t go into the full details here, as I am putting together a blogContinue reading “Small Incentives”

Review: Blood Magick by Nora Roberts

I have a new review over at All About Romance of Nora Robert’s new release Blood Magick. Well, my anticipation for Branna and Finbar’s story was, sadly, not met. This is the third book in the Cousins O’Dywerseries and I had been hoping that it would be the one to put the others to shame.Continue reading “Review: Blood Magick by Nora Roberts”

Reviews in the Wild: Sleigh Bells in the Snow

Since I shared my review of All I Want Is You that ended up on the Seattle Public Library page, I thought I would share my most exciting Review in the Wild so far. I got blurbed in a book! Sadly, it doesn’t have my name, just All About Romance, but I know it wasContinue reading “Reviews in the Wild: Sleigh Bells in the Snow”

Reviews in the Wild: All I Want Is You

It is always exciting when a review I have written shows up somewhere beside All About Romance. One of my co-reviews just showed me that my review of All I Want is You is featured on her library’s website. How exciting! Here it is.

What I’ve Done Instead of Write

Since I finished my NaNoWriMo goal a month ago (whew, that flew by) I have done no writing at all. Zilch. The only exception being two book reviews which accounts to not much at all. Here’s what I’ve done in place of writing for the last month: Relax. As soon as NaNo was done IContinue reading “What I’ve Done Instead of Write”
