First of all, HAPPPPPPYYY AUTUMN!!! I wore a sweater last week, and I can’t wait our weather is cool enough for that to become a regular thing. I love my sweaters. ❤ Even though I believe in letting autumn be autumn (and we’re slowly decorating the house with pretties), I’ve been working on a Christmas … More Happily Busy
You know those author bloggers who sometimes just drop a meme and call it a blog post? There are two main reasons this happens… The author doesn’t want to blog that day out of laziness, tiredness, or uninspiredness. The author spent their day writing, and therefore is out of words and should not have to … More Just Memes
Does your family have “leftover day”? Like where you go through the fridge and either score the last hamburger or end up with beans and bananas and existential dread? I promise this leftover day on my blog will be better than that because I have leftover book stock from the convention! I’m offering signed copies … More Leftover Book Stock Time!
I was standing behind our display of beautiful leather briefcases propping up shiny, thick books. And after a day and a half of helping run the Generation Rising booth, I was running out of words and ways to explain my new novel. “You wrote this?” A nod. “What is it about?” Sometimes I just recycled … More Stories As Bridges

Today is the day. The Day. Three years (+ a couple months) ago, I started a story. A story about a girl, a draft, a pastor, and some really fascinating side characters. That story grew by sideplots, wordcount, a through-line, and a message. There were snacks… Some sophisticated planning… XD Two sessions of Camp NaNoWriMo … More Kiera Release Day!!!
