One Week Out

How Perfect You are has been out one week as of today! Just a couple of thoughts: Goodreads has been an unexpected source of free exposure. I created an author profile and submitted my book to be listed, and several people added it to their “To-Read” list within the first day. I also have 3 reviews/ratings already! If you’re a Goodreads fan, find me … Read More One Week Out

I really need to reiterate how much I have no idea what I’m doing

At least, when it comes to marketing and advertising. I know how to write. (At least, I really really hope I do.) I know how to self-edit. I know how to beg grammar savvy family members to edit, too. I even know how to contract out cover design. (Side note, still freaking out over How Perfect’s cover.) But what I don’t know is the first thing about marketing. … Read More I really need to reiterate how much I have no idea what I’m doing

Cover Reveal for How Perfect You Are

My debut novel, How Perfect You Are took me…hang on, let me check the revision history on Google Docs…a little over two years to write. It was the first time I’d ever written more than 20,000 words of anything, let alone finished an entire, full-length novel. It kicks off what I hope to be a fairly long-running series centering around students at the fictional Carlson … Read More Cover Reveal for How Perfect You Are

It’s Here, It’s Here!

After trying (and failing) to use Canva to create my own book cover, I finally bit the bullet and decided that I was going to have to pay someone to design my cover for me. Graphic design is something I know…basically nothing about. I got pretty good at using InDesign for the layout of my high school’s newspaper, but that’s not much help when … Read More It’s Here, It’s Here!


I’ve had a blog before. Mainly rambling about random aspects of my life and posting pictures of my dog. Now, though, I’m excited to actually have something specific to blog about- my writing and journey into the self-publishing field. At the moment I have no idea what I’m doing, but I hope that will change very soon and I’ll be able to share information … Read More Welcome!
