YAtopia, INDIEstructible, Zodiac Collector, and Coffee with Endure


LOTS of updates today, folks!

This summer has been a balls to the wall, full-throttle adventure of writing and editing THREE books. ENDURE came out in July and EVOKE (Book Two in the series) will be going into edits in the coming weeks. ZODIAC COLLECTOR, a stand alone YA pararom with Spencer Hill Press is in second pass edits–WOOT!

Today, my debut post with YAtopia goes live and I share my thoughts on UNhappily Ever After endings. Stop by and drop your two cents; I’d love to see you there!

On Wednesday, September 4th, author Ally Shields and I are enjoying a nice hot cuppa and chatting on her blog about ENDURE.  Hop on over to check it out! (LINK)

***HELP SUPPORT THE INDIE AUTHOR AND AN AMAZING CHARITY!***

September is a very special month.

I, along with HUNDREDS of other authors, am celebrating the launch of an anthology, written and created, by indie authors, FOR indie authors.

Need motivation and inspiration to self-publish or sign that contract with an interested small press? Have you done all the research you can, but still feel ambivalent about the idea? Indiestructible: Inspiring Stories from the Publishing Jungle brings you the experiences of 29 indie authors (including me!)—their passions, their insights, their successes—to help you make the leap into indie publishing.

This is not a how-to guide. This is the best of the indie tradition of experienced authors paying forward what they’ve learned, giving you information to help you on your journey. The personal essays in this book will leave you itching to get your work into the hands of readers and experience, first-hand, all the rewards indie publishing has to offer.

Not only is this anthology packed full of interesting and unique information, and totally worth the 99c (only 99c!!!), 100% of proceeds will be donated to BUILDON.org, a movement which breaks the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations through service and education.

Pretty amazing, huh?

What are you waiting for?
