Okay, it’s been awhile since my last post. I have some very exciting news that I’m not allowed to share right now though. So I thought if I put myself on blogging lockdown that would make my secret keeping easier.
It totally didn’t.
And now I have all of these things to tell you!
Where to start? Perhaps with the Romance Writers of America who recognized the absolute brilliance of my friend Erica O’Rourke’s book, Bound?
Erica is one of those authors that makes you curl up into a little ball and say, “I cannot handle the awesome. I. Cannot. Handle. The. Awesome.”
At least that was my reaction while I read her books.
So I could not be more thrilled for her (or more excited to meet her in real life at the RWA conference in Atlanta! We will be speaking on a panel with the spectacular Jennifer Estep, the incomparable Nina Berry, and our editor-of-awesome Alicia Condon!) and all the other nominees!
I look forward to meeting you all in Atlanta!
I received this COMPLETELY AWESOME package from KTeen!
Advanced Reader Copies of INVISIBLE (Jane’s book)!!!
I’m going to set up giveaways and post some sneak peeks soon! So keep checking in!
I got another package from KTeen with the coverflats of NOTABLE (Chelsea’s book)!!!
But if I posted those right now that might be too much awesome. I don’t want to send you into awesome overload all at once.
Except now I feel guilty for leading you on so….
HERE IS THE HUNGARIAN BOOK TRAILER FOR AWKWARD!!!
That’s right. The Hungarians made a book trailer! Which means that if you don’t actually speak Hungarian, you’re not going to be able to understand, y’know, what she’s saying…
But I happen to think the CPR scene speaks for itself! I am beyond thrilled with it!
LAST BUT NOT LEAST…
I am starting a vlog!
This is a brand new venture for me so you should definitely expect there to be a learning curve. But I decided that this would be an exciting way for me to interact with all of you in a way that goes beyond words. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’ll still be speaking in my YouTube videos. I won’t just like, stare creepily at the screen or anything.
Not often, at any rate.
So I hope you enjoy my vlog! I also really hope you leave me a question or a comment. Remember: I’m doing this for YOU! Questions about writing, editing, college, high school, life…all of it is totally fair game!
Or for the direct link to YouTube:
And on that note…it’s time for me to get back to writing!
AHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!SO MUCH AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IT’S KILLING ME!!!!!!!!!!
LOL! Thank you for geeking out with me! It means the world to me!
Don’t know a word of Hungarian but they captured that “Awkward” moment perfectly! Too funny! So happy for you!
Thank you so much, Jennifer! I thought they captured it perfectly too! And I’m so glad you enjoyed my first vlog. *happy dances* I would love to hear any topic ideas that you or Mckinley think I should discuss in future videos. It’ll be like the book club meeting never ended! ;D
I love “failing is always an option”! Great message! Congrats to your first vlog!
Marni, Marni, Marni. Keeping it real and funny and from the gut as always. Whether it’s on the page or on the screen, you are a wonder of the world!
Thanks, Laurie! I’m so glad I’ve been with you on every step of this journey!
Hey grrrl, your vlog was really great! I loved hearing how you “got started” (both Serious Mom and Serious Grandma) and your perspective on failure. Thanks for posting it! And that Hungarian trailer was totally awesome.
Hey Maisha! Have I mentioned lately how much I miss/love you? Because I really, really do! I’m pretty sure I owe you an email too… *scurries to check Gmail*
