WHAT I’M READING –
SKY JUMPERS by my awesome friend, Peggy Eddleman. I’ve known her since before she landed her agent and am so excited to finally be reading her MG. I’m also stoked because I get to meet her in person in April!
Her original title was The Bomb’s Breath, and now I get why. AWESOME STORY.
WHAT I’M WRITING: (this might take a bit)
First off, I’m working on copyedits for STRONGER THAN YOU KNOW, which comes out in September. I’m dying to share my cover, but am not yet allowed
Remember that draft I finished up a while ago? Yeah. it needed a LOT of work. Like…a tense change. That process is horrible, BTW. Not at all recommended. DEAL is now in the capable hands of Katy Upperman for another read through. WHEW!
I self-pub NA romance (not the SUPAH sexy stuff, the lighter, sexy stuff) under the pen name Mia Josephs, and I’m halfway done w/ this series of novellas, which I’m pretty stoked about 😀 The middle book is actually a total re-write of the first book I ever wrote about an out of rehab rockstar w/ a severe case of writer’s block. It’s been SO fun to see that story be told in a way that’s…well…readable 😉
Yes. I’m picture happy today.
I also just re-did my cover of AFTER ALL b/c as much as I LOVE covers w/ just one person, couples sell better. Sigh. Since my Mia books are all for fun (but I make more money there) I changed it up and put it on sale.
WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO:
1. My oven broke, and the whole inside is melted in this sort of frighteningly weird way. Also, I bake something for kiddos’ lunches 3-4 mornings a week, and I’m now at a loss of what to feed them… (son w/ allergies)
Our days are getting longer so fast (I’m in Alaska) that it’s unreal, and I’m about to pull out the blackout curtains.
Going to lunch with a friend tomorrow and NO CHILDREN. This is monumental.
At the end of last summer I was running 5 miles on trails in about 50-55 minutes. Today I ran 3 miles (not on a trail) and thought I might die…
Trying not to think too much about THE SUMMER I FOUND YOU being out in the wild.
WHAT INSPIRES ME?
Awesome friends. Nyrae Dawn, Allie Brennan, Christa Desir and Cassie Mae have all talked me off of ledges over the past 2 weeks, and I adore them for it.
My agent of awesomeness, Jane Dystel.
So. This has been fun! Due to my very few hours of the day w/ no children and copyedits due FRI, I’ll be stalking you all Wed evening…
