Killer Launch Party

I’m still recovering from a weekend of Ultimate Writerly Fun at the LDStorymakers Conference. Being with some of my favorite people doing some of my favorite things was amazing! But more on that later. I have info you NEED to know. This weekend we’ll keep the party going by helping our friend Jessie Humphries celebrate the launch of her YA Thriller, KILLING RUBY ROSE. Here’s the info you need to know to make this a Killer Weekend!   All the details for both events can be found on Jessie’s website. Just remember this: the Launch is Friday night and FREE to the public. The Saturday night concert is a ticketed event (totally affordable!!) and you get your tickets here. Hope to see you there!...

Author Interview {Sarah M. Eden}

I’m nursing a cold and feeling…bleh. You know that moment when you sleep terribly even though your body is exhausted. You wake up from bad dreams in the middle of the night but can’t remember them in detail later, only the feeling of being disturbed. And your baby has a blowout that could have been disastrous had you not had ninja like reflexes. Yeah, that’s when my day took a turn for the better. You’re laughing, but successfully navigating a baby blowout is the perfect way to make your day happier. Oh, and snuggling said baby after an impromptu bath to clean up said blowout and then hearing him coo to you in gratitude for making him all nice and clean and snuggly. Hmmm…happy moments, people. As far as the cold, I self...

Ah, Jane

I love the comedy and romantics that go on between the lovely Emma and her dear friend Miss Smith as she endeavors to find her a perfect match. A twist on Jane Austen’s most humorous writing is what I had in mind with my own Regency romance (deep in revisions as we speak!!). One of my favorite scenes from this story inspired a scene in my own novel, A HEART SO BROKEN. It’s when Mr. Knightley reproves Emma after her unkindness to Ms. Bates at the strawberry picking party. He pulls her up short, not because he delights in finding fault with her, but because he cares about her and the influence she has on her community. In A HEART SO BROKEN, Jenna has stumbled upon an inconvenient truth, something that Cooper neglected to tell her and for which she...

A Little Inspiration

Kay, so last Friday I got some good news, good news that had me up until 2am writing and revising like crazy to get a query letter and first ten pages as good as I possibly could before my brain turned to complete sleep deprived mush. You see, I’m going to this Conference in a couple weeks…ten days to be exact (not that I’m counting!!!). When I signed up for LDStorymakers, my goal was to register the moment I could in order to be a part of these awesome new Agent Workshops they’re having this year. What’s so cool about an Agent Workshop? you might ask. Of course this is a good question, one I am happy to explain to you. Instead of a 10 minute, nail biting, make-it-or-break-it session with your proposed agent, several agents are...

Author Interview {Peggy Eddleman}

I met this lovely lady while sitting at last year’s Whitney Awards. She showed me a picture of her book cover on her phone and it took my breath away! Since then we’ve become friends, we’ve sprinted together (writing, not running, though she could probably sprint physically too!), and we both share an appreciation for a well baked cookie. Now Peggy has a second book coming out in September and is teaching at the LDStorymakers Conference in a couple weeks. Peggy was nice enough to let me ask her a million questions about books and writing and everything in between. Take a look!  CH:     Sky Jumpers is on my to read list – where did this idea come from?  PE: The idea for the setting (which is usually what I start with when I write a book) came...
