Welcome to my shiny new blog!
My first book, SWEET UNREST, will be out October 2014 from Flux books. It's about New Orleans and Hoodoo and ghosts and century-old curses and smooching.
I know. Exciting, right?
So I figured I should probably have a blog. I used to have a blog, but that one mostly talked about my kids and grad school and blah blah blah. Nobody wants to hear about that.
THIS blog is going to talk about writing. And books. And writers. And literature type things.
What can I say, it's what I do.
You know the best part? I'm not going to be the only one posting here!
Here's what I have planned for you:
Must Read Mondays: Books that I think everyone needs to read. Like. Right. Now. I promise they'll be good. And sometimes, I'll even have giveaways.
First Line Fridays: Get ready, because I have authors booked through the summer to give us sneak peaks of the first lines of their upcoming books.
Keep Going: Ever wanted to just throw in the towel? Occasionally, I'll be featuring the stories of authors who almost gave up...and what happened when they didn't. Because let's face it--we all need a shot of hope every now and then, right?
Author Interviews: I have a pile of ARCs that are just itching for a new home. Sometimes I'll have authors on to talk about them--and I'm giving the books away to you!
Query Critiques: Here's the deal--I'm kind of pretty good when it comes to queries. I can whip yours into shape in no time, so once a month (lucky 13!), I'll be giving away a query critique to one lucky commenter. If you're willing to let the whole world see, I'm willing to give you a free query.
Yeah--I thought you might like that.
Oh, right. And there's one more thing. To kick off my blog, I'm hosting my first giveaway--and it's a big one. I have four ARCs--that's right, FOUR! And they're REALLY good ones. Check it out:
The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings
Unforgotten by Jessica Brody
Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman
The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski
All four are going to one lucky winner (US only, please!)
