Bookstores Are My Favorite!

Bookstoresare myfavorite

Today I’m excited about Julie Valerie’s Fiction Writers Blog Hop. She chose the topic of bookstores. At first I wasn’t sure what to write about and then it came to me: my favorite things about bookstores. I’m an author but first and foremost I’m a reader. I can’t remember a time I didn’t read. My interest torpedoed into obsessive levels once I hit sixth grade and started reading all of my mom’s Danielle Steel novels….

How to Bust Through Writer’s Block


Does the title grab your attention? Years ago any blog post or article with even a hint of advice on writer’s block got a click from me. After publishing five books and three short stories I’ve realized something. Writer’s block doesn’t exist. I’m being serious. I know this isn’t something you want to hear. You want to believe that you need to watch a movie, take a shower, or complete some writing exercises and then…

What Would YouChange AboutYour School Years-

What if you were forced to relive your grade school, middle school, or high school years? You don’t have a choice. What would you do differently? Is there anything you would change?

Organizational Hack


I love organization. File folders, binders, storage boxes, bookshelves, planners. I adore them all. Put me in an Office Max or the storage area in Target and I’m happy. But let me tell you a secret. I’m a hack. I’m living a lie. I’m a person who claims to have all her ducks in a row, everything put away in a clean manner that’s easy to find. I’ll put things in my planner and have…

It’s a #COYER Summer Vacation (Kind Of)


A few years ago I kept seeing a hashtag on twitter: #COYER. Having no clue what this meant, I asked someone, as one would do. This stands for Clean Out Your E-Reader. What’s the challenge? Spend the summer reading books that you’ve already downloaded to clean out your Kindle. Apparently in the past there have always been specific rules to follow with this challenge. I was informed that this summer is the summer of NO…

The Truth About Reaching Your Goals


This quote to the left is a status update from my Facebook feed in May 2013. At the time, I was doing Weight Watchers and dropped about twenty pounds. My mouth dropped open when a coworker asked me this. Thirty days? It took many months and a lot of hard work. I exercised daily and stayed within my allotted point range. I lost at a rate of 1-2 pounds a week and sometimes I plateaued….

#ChickLitMay A to Z Scavenger Hunt


  SASSY is my favorite way to describe chick lit as a genre. People often ask what I write and like to read. When I respond with chick lit, I sometimes get weird looks, or people questioning what the genre even is. I won’t go into an entire post about why chick lit is an awesome genre and people need to stop judging everyone’s choices, but what I WILL tell you is why I love…
