WHAT'S HAPPENIN'

 

Planning to do anything particularly bookish? Dude, you totally have to click here and check these guys out. They will Set. You. UP! Look at what they've done for me! You think I obtained all this awesomeness on my own?! Well...okay. A lot of the awesomeness is all me. But STILL. It takes a VILLAGE! And there's nobody I'd want to share my book village with more than the cool team at Fresh Ink Group!

WOW! I had SO much fun at this year's Seattle Readers & Writers Author Event! I got to see one of my all-time favorite authors, Stevie Rae Causey (and buy a few more of her books), I had a couple return customers from last year (& promised them a new book for next year, so I need to get writing as soon as I post this)! One of them was a 2nd grade teacher who read my 1st book to her class last year & can't wait to read my 2nd one to them next year! I also met a ton of new readers & writers (including a friend of Jamie Ford, the author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter & Sweet. She's a teacher at his old school & I can't wait to tell MY language arts teacher about it, since we just read his book last year)! HUGE thanks to Shauna Kruse for another AWESOME event!!!
I had a great time, once again, at the Brick & Mortar Indie Author Night! There were a few authors from last year and a quite a few new ones and we had a great turn-out! 
Had an Ah-MAZ-ing time at the Spring Fairy Festival in Tacoma! There were so many super-cool people to meet and so many awesome things to see! I'm so glad I got the chance to participate!!!
Here I am making lemonade out of the sour lemons I got. Fate hands you a sprained ankle the week before regional championships, & instead of staying home & crying about it, you go & cheer on your teammates...and sell a few books while you're at it. No reason to be too sad, anyway. Apparently my state championship score was enough to qualify me for the national championships in June, so my season isn't quite over yet. HEAL, ankle, HEAL!!!
ThankYouThankYouThankYou, Literary Titan for your beautiful 5-star review and for giving Mylee In The Mirror a gold medal to match the one you gave to Daisy, Bold & Beautiful!
