So much in on video! I was able to get some writing in for week two of NaNoWriMo, though I’ll admit not as much as I would have liked, but for a good reason! I’ve been very busy with the re-release of Essence. But before I get to that, let’s talk about some Black Friday sales I’ve got going on that starts today!
Stay tuned for the Love/Hate Tag! But first, we have some things to announce about the #AuthorTubeWriteIn. As many of your know, I team up with Natalia Leigh and Brooke Passmore once a month to do live write ins on our YouTube channels. For the month of October we’re going to have a special Halloween edition and we’ll be dressing up and we hope you do too! Take a selfie of you in your costume on share it on social media using #AuthorTubeWriteIn.
I’ve been meaning to do this tag for the longest time! The writing community is such a positive force and always pushes me to do better, so I’m so happy that Brittany Wang and Peggy Spencer created this tag!
Whenever someone here’s the concept behind She’s Not Here, usually one of the first questions is, where did you get the idea for the story? Normally, the inspiration behind my novels is pretty simple, but things were different for this book. She’s Not Here came from a deeply personal place, so I wanted to create a tag video so I could talk about it and also allow other writers to talk about what inspired their story.
If you follow me on social media you may know that over the weekend I got engaged. So I hope you don’t mind an interruption of the regular writing videos for this vlog of our skydiving adventure. I also apologize for some of the audio is hard to hear. Most of this was filmed on a GoPro.
I was tagged by Brittany Wang to do the Author Trivia Tag, created by Lenn Woolston. Basically, the tag is 10 random facts you might not have know about me, so let’s get to chatting! Let me know in the comments if any of these facts surprised you!
Today I’m teaming up with the wonderful Jenna Moreci for an original tag we’ve created all the 1 Minute Book Bragging Challenge! The challenge is to quiz another writer on their story.

Last weekend I was so excited to travel to Minneapolis for the first ever Wander Writers Retreat! As you can tell from the vlog, I had a great time meeting so many amazing writers.
