You know how The Universe sends you the same lesson until you get it? Well… I thought I learned my lesson. Not well enough, though, apparently. 🙄🤣 The job I thought was going to be amazing turned out to not be so amazing 🤷♀️ Obviously, I left. I left jobs where I felt mistreated before, … Continue reading Here We Go Again!

Meet Me Out There is OUT NOW!! 🛸😭
I have a feeling this is going to be short and sweet, because I'm lost for words. I can't believe I'm sitting here writing this post right now. After everything... I'm finally, actually here. I kept Meet Me Out There a secret for the last 2.5 years as I navigated the hell of my personal … Continue reading Meet Me Out There is OUT NOW!! 🛸😭
Letting Go and Moving On
The last 4-5 years for me have been less than ideal. I’m turning 29 soon, which is making me reflect on my twenties and how the last half of them haven’t gone to plan one bit. I thought I’d have three kids and a traditional writing career by now—I don’t. And I’m okay. I’m grateful … Continue reading Letting Go and Moving On
How I Find Agents to Query
While in graduate school for Literacy, I had phenomenal professors who treated us like coworkers and friends instead of simply students. I expressed to one of them (who knew I wanted to be a published author) I felt “stuck” with my first novel -- I didn’t know what to do with the manuscript when I … Continue reading How I Find Agents to Query
Genre-bending for the Win!
Writing in one genre isn’t for me. There are so many facets to who I am and what I’m interested in -- I tend to dance between genres based on what feels right at the time and what makes me happy. My first novel, Love Isn’t Always on Time, is a paranormal romance-horror-comedy written as … Continue reading Genre-bending for the Win!
Opinion: Reviewing Books as an Author
As you know, I’m an author. I’m also a bookstagrammer. I don’t have many people “in real life” I can talk to about books, so the book community on Instagram lets me do that with artsy photography. It’s a really fun hobby I’m not always consistent with since I only post when I’m motivated, truly … Continue reading Opinion: Reviewing Books as an Author
How My Perspective on Writing Changed…
Wow, I haven’t posted on here in forever 😂 This post is a little long and all over the place… I have a semi-update on where I’ve been, the true intention for my post, and some manifesting affirmations for writing at the bottom for fun, because we all need some blessed energy these days, don’t … Continue reading How My Perspective on Writing Changed…
Law of Attraction: on Writing
Recently, I asked God for a new perspective. My anxiety was at an all-time high, and I felt stagnant. The Complete Works of Florence Scovel Shinn was my answer. I'm frequently divinely guided to spiritual books through my intuition, and when I found this one, I expected it to be just that -- another spiritual … Continue reading Law of Attraction: on Writing
What I Wish I Knew Before Self-Publishing…
Here's what I already knew: Without the marketing of a traditional publishing house, I wouldn't sell as many copies, especially at the beginning. I'm okay with that. I just wanted to finally get my book out there, and I wanted to keep my voice authentic without an editor changing it. All I can do now … Continue reading What I Wish I Knew Before Self-Publishing…
