I feel like my writer life has been a whirlwind these past few weeks, which is unusual. Grunge Gods came out nearly a year ago and my professional life has been fairly quiet. Until recently. With my self-imposed May 1st deadline fast approaching, I’ve been pushing myself to complete revisions on The Lady in Blue novella and write my jazzy blurb. While I’m waiting on content and line edits, I’m trying to learn a zillion indie publishing things like Draft2Digital and uploading direct to Apple. Also, I’ve participated in two really cool YA marketing events and I’m going to ship copies of Grunge Gods to new homes this week. I’m working on my first draft of Dead and Breakfast, the first in a new YA mystery series and I’ve even lined up a cover artist for the books. I’m striving for an early September release day on that. Lastly, I can show off this amazing illustration that is accompanying my short story, “Graveyard Shift,” in the Brave New Girls anthology which should be out mid June. How kickass is that? Full disclosure: I didn’t draw this. This artwork is by Evelinn Enoksen.
