What’s New?

If you’d been keeping up with my posts, then you’ve heard that I have been having a horrible time formatting the final copy of The Fairytale Keeper: Avenging the Queen.  Yesterday, I bit the bullet and sent it off to a formatting company and what a weight was lifted of my shoulders!  I should have the final copy in a week.  No more ARC’s though. (Sorry bloggers!)

When I sent the final copy off, I thought I’d start picking up some of the books I’ve been dying to read, but nope.  The characters started having conversations in my head and the writing bug has bitten again.  Now I’m off to rewrite the beginning of the second book in The Fairytale Keeper series.  Wish me luck!

Which Disney Princess Were You?

I’d love to know which Disney Princess you are!  Belle, Cinderella, Aurora, Snow White, Jasmine??  Since my book is based on the Snow White tale, most might think I was a Snow White.  Nope.  To find out which Disney Princess I was dubbed and how that affected me when writing The Fairytale Keeper: Avenging the Queen,  check out my post on Christy’s wonderful YA blog, Captivated Reading

Author Talk at Hillcrest High School in Ms. Esrum’s Art Class

I had a great time yesterday visiting my art teacher from high school Ms. Eva Esrum. She really inspired a love of art and history for me. It was so nice to see her again and talk to her students about the writing process and careers in publishing. They were a great audience.  I think there might be a few future authors and illustrators in that classroom!
