Drum Roll Please

No, seriously, peeps, I NEED A DRUM ROLL! Bet you're wondering if I won the lottery. Or maybe you think I made an amazing discovery, like how to breathe underwater without scuba gear. Nope, but I do have some AWESOME NEWS!!!!

Okay, settle down! Stop the drum roll. I need total silence. This girl, this one right here, behind the computer screen has signed with WORLD CASTLE PUBLISHING! I can now put the title, AUTHOR, before or after my name, which ever I choose because that's what I am! Squeal!!!! Booty dance!!!! High five!!!! Whew, okay, enough of that. I'm out of breath. Anywho, I just wanted to share the good news with you guys and show you all my amazing book cover. When I get a release date, I'll have fun contests to give away copies of SEBASTIAN FALLS.

In true me fashion, this is a short post, but I would like to encourage anyone reading this, who's chasing a dream, not to give up! Keep going! If a girl from Podunk AR can see her dreams come to pass then anyone can. The quickest and only way to fail is giving up. All right, I'm out. Until the next time, happy writing to my writing peeps and happy reading to my reading peeps! :)

It's A Jungle Out There

Hey, Peeps!

While out shopping this weekend, I noticed a lot of hostile people, which is totally crazy. Where the heck do they get off being so nasty? I mean it was only Dec. 1st, so they had no right to act like a bunch of elephants on crack! That right only comes for us last minute Christmas Eve shoppers! Then, the gloves come off, and we do whatever necessary to score the amazing gift we're too stupid to purchase before the brutal masses emerge.

Anywho, I'm not sure why people were in such a tizz this past weekend, but after a lady rammed me in the perfume isle at TJ Max,  I stood back and observed all the body language going on. The outing ended up being a perfect way to collect character traits for my WIP. So, the next time I go out, (and I will, but with pepper spray) I plan on taking a note pad and pen. I will embrace all the grinches out there and thank them for their help in creating hostile characters. And I vow not to use the pepper spray, unless totally necessary to complete my little princess' Christmas wish list. So, if you see me on the news, don't judge. Just bail me out of jail, and we can people watch together.

Until the next time, happy writing, friends!
