WOW Wednesday and Happy Thanksgiving!

A few years ago I blogged about a certain wishbone breaking in a funny way:


Well, it's come back to haunt the WOW Wednesday guest post that I've done over at Adventures in YA Publishing. If you're a writer, I hope the advice hits home!

And now, I need to make stuffing. And cookies. And a dozen individual apple pies. And mashed potatoes that are probably more cheese and butter than potatoes. Good thing the eating will be easier than the cooking!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING, everyone!
Thank you so much for helping me through this year as my book release nears. Everyone has been so sweet and so supportive. I don't know how I'd go through this craziness without all of you!

Guest Post at the Bookshelf Sophisticate!

I'm a day late for this, but better late than never. :) I did a guest post over at the Bookshelf Sophisticate.

Find out how a fortune cookie actually said something of value for once! 

So next week is Thanksgiving. Woot! I'm thinking of making these for dessert:


Individual apple pies in jam jars. Mmm. Can't wait. Wish I could give one to each of you!

Have a great Thanksgiving Week and stay warm, well fed, and safe!

They Should call it "RUN", not Fall

Because life is getting so busy! The holidays are coming, I'm not ready, ideas of gifts and holiday cards and leaves smothering my yard are making my head spin.

Then there's this book coming out and getting ready for it, which is occupying a lot of my time. I think I might have done less in preparing for the arrival of my first child. He never needed promo!

Anyway, here it is. My editor sent it to me all shiny and wrapped with a ribbon.


And meanwhile, Fall is really upon us.



And I'm running, running, running to catch up to my endless list of things to do, all the while trying to stop and just enjoy the blue and gold.

How is your fall going so far? Are you feeling the stress of the pre-holiday crazies yet?

Flying Syringes

Intriguing title, no?

Come read about Flying Syringes over at the League of Extraordinary Writers today! It really should be a Medical Mondays post. It's a fascinating subject and hopefully inspiring for you sci-fi writers out there.

Oh, and a little good news--CONTROL was chosen as a Top Pick by the Romance Times Book Review! Yay! :)

Hope you guys are enjoying your November so far. It's chilly over here. Stay warm!

Ode to my favorite Indie Bookstore, the Bookworm!

Cookies at the Bookworm? Yes. And more!
I've gushed about this bookstore before, and I'm happy to do it again. :)


There's also a huge November book giveaway by our class, honoring our favorite Indie bookstores.

On Tuesday, I was interviewed by The Book Wars where we discussed children's literature. 

And remember there are free pages up to read on Wattpad, as well as a pre-order giveaway for CONTROL!
