    Beautiful People #27 | August Edition

    Hello, all you lovely people! Guess what time it is. It’s time for Beautiful People again! *cheers* I am once more participating in the link-up hosted by Cait at Paperfury and Sky at Further Up and Further In. Hopefully it will help me break out of the writer’s block I’ve been having this month… writer’s block combined with “do-I-really-have-time-to-write-this-story-and-is-it-even-worth-my-time” block. YES, THAT IS A THING. (That I just made up. Shhh.) I will be doing this with one of my favorite characters (shhh don’t tell my other children) Katie Aline. She’s one of the main characters in my current novel and you can read more about her here. Here’s a brief bio:…

    introducing my new blog theme!

    Hello, everyone! I shan’t be doing a regular post today because #reasons… but don’t worry, I’ll be back next week. (: This week has been a little bit crazy, what with school starting and everything… But, I do have something for you! My new, glorious, done-over blog! I am quite honestly very pleased with the way it turned out. See the sidebar? And the header? And all my updated pages? And my pretty featured images? I am probably way too excited about this… So, I did update my pages, so you can go read those instead of the blog post I would have written. Or you could go read an…

    Horrendous stories I wrote as a child + what I learned from them

      Hello lovely people! Today I’m doing a tag created by Abbiee. I saw it on her blog around a month ago and knew I had to do it. And then I was tagged by Amanda at SKG Fun (an amazing blog),  so here I am. Thanks, Amanda! Now, before I begin, let’s note that I didn’t finish every one of these stories, because I was a scatterbrained young writer who abandoned things she got bored with in favor of new, shiny, glorious ideas. HAHAHA WHO AM I KIDDING. I still am that scatterbrained young writer. I also don’t actually have real titles for most of these. The files were…

    Andora’s Folly Blog Tour! // Q+A vlog

      I am thrilled to be participating in Abigayle Claire’s blog tour for her latest release, Andora’s Folly! I had the pleasure of beta reading for her, which was an amazing experience. I was able to ask Abigayle a few questions, which she answered in a vlog that you can view below. But first, a few details about the book! SYNOPSIS A Pandora’s Box retelling Andora is a beautiful young woman with insatiable curiosity. Raised in splendor, she is spoiled by her privileged life. When a love letter is slid under her door, her life takes a drastically unromantic turn. Nothing makes sense—her arranged marriage, the gifts her parents bestow…

    I won camp nano: one last update + things to come

    As you all can probably tell from the title, I WON CAMP NANOWRIMO!!!!! *screams* We are the champions, my friends… I won’t be doing a day-by-day update because 1), I don’t feel like it, and 2), I don’t feel like it. So I’ll just give you my lovely stats… I managed to stay on track and meet my goal almost every day, finishing with a total of 16,057. 57 words more than my goal, yay! ; ) Sadly, I’m… not… done. Because of my extreme ramblingness (yes, I just made that word up), I didn’t exactly finish. But I’m close! I’m so, so close to being done with my (positively…
