On The Blog This Week



The Latest With Me

I finished revisions on If Only We and sent it out to beta readers this week... so I am exceptionally nervous and hoping that they at least like the story. I'm also hoping for constructive criticism on my writing because I want to make sure that I learn from my mistakes and can fine tune my writing. As excited as I am to get the ball rolling on the road to publication, I'm feeling the anxiety build for it all. There's so much to do and so little time! While I'm waiting on my betas, I've been looking into the next steps: formatting and ISBNs. This weekend I'm going to work more on blog tour ideas. I also might start working on my next novel!


Hope you have a great weekend!!!

  2. Good luck on "If Only We" -- the promotional process can be so overwhelming, but it pays off! And same with the beta readers. I had some for a book that I was querying to agents, and they really spotted a lot of things that I didn't, especially with world building (it was a fantasy). I can't wait to read your book :D
