A Giveaway!

DRAWN IN cover

I’m doing another giveaway on Goodreads! TODAY November 29-December 10, enter to win a signed paperback copy of my book Drawn In. I’m only giving away ONE copy so cross your fingers and make a wish. Also, if you email or message or comment here and want it personalized, just say the word. And if you’d like a few “behind the scenes” annotations, I’m always happy to write a little in the margins. 🙂

Oh, and if you’re awesome enough to already own a copy, maybe a nice Christmas present for a YA loving friend in your life?

Sputter… sputter… cough…


Yes, that is the sound of my engine stalling. My writing engine has been stalled for a while now. I still make progress, but not nearly at the rate I want to be, and it gets incredibly frustrating. Especially when I know that I have people awaiting the second book. It’s such an amazing thing to have people anxious for my story and my characters… I know Rennie would be so pleased (well, Maia would be pleased. Rennie would be a little mystified by that, I think).

I notice myself getting lots of mental prep done (which is a big part of it for me… I do most of my writing in my head and then just translate to paper… anyone else do that?) and then suddenly I’m chasing plot bunnies, or distracted by the fact that I haven’t stumbled onto the perfect title yet, or cruising around Pintrest and Polyvore wondering what Rennie would be wearing whilst running through the forest at 2am with Ethan.

When I buckled down and got to work on Drawn In to finally finish it and get it out into the world, I had a set schedule and I made myself stick to it. I’ve been lacking in that sort of discipline lately and it definitely shows. So here I am, publicly stating that I am setting a schedule for myself. Hear that, world? I’m on the move, so watch out!
