Fresh Start

A new page.
A new blog.
A new direction.

Don't you love fresh starts?

There are so many authors making fresh starts, taking new directions, trying new ways to get their stories into the hands of readers. There isn't a one-size-fits-all way to publish just like there isn't one-size-fits-all jeggings (and that's a good thing). 

I adore the real life flavor in books by Sarah Dessen, the humor in books by Gwen Hayes and the angst in books by Shanna Norris. I'm leaving out a billion of my favorite authors but I'll be sure to mention other faves in upcoming posts. 

I write sweet, contemporary YA's. My first book will release in November, after it's gone through an editor and proof reader. (Note: my first book to be published is not my very first book written and that's a very good thing!) 

This blog will help you lose ten pounds(1), tame the frizzies(2), capture the to-do's of indie publishing(3) and share the roller coaster ride of being a working YA author. 

(1) Maybe, if you promise not to eat anything while you're BIC
(2) I could share how rubbing a dryer sheet over your head would help, but who wants to go around smelling like their laundry?!
(3) Yes...think of it as a cheat sheet for self-publishing!
