First Review and Nerves

I gave a couple of people ARC of LARK and today I read my first review! This review made my day! It's a very exciting thing to know that there are people out there who love your story.

It's a scary thing letting people read something so personal. I've spent the last year working on LARK and I love it of course, if I didn't I wouldn't have written it, but now that I'm putting it out there for the world to see (read), it makes me feel extremely vulnerable.  I'm a huge bundle of nerves these days and it hasn't even been officially published yet! Can you imagine how I'll feel on R-day (Release-day)?? I'm going to be a mess!

I know my story is not going to be everybody's cup of tea. I know this and I've accepted it. If we all liked the same things the world would be a very boring place. But if there are people out there who love it as much as I do, I'll consider that a success!

And when I do get my first bad review, I hope that I remember the good ones and smile.





P.S. I'm planning on posting Sneak Peek #3 soon so stay tuned! :)

New Job

In February I was offered a position at the local high school working with Seniors who are at risk for not graduating on time. It's only a part time job which I thought was perfect because I'd still have time to write during the day.

Well, it's true, I still have had time to write but it's been at a much slower pace. Which is fine. I had decided this year to focus on balancing things in my life better, and well, not staying up until 3 in the morning writing every night seemed like a pretty good place to start.

And it's been GREAT!

I love working with the students. I was kind of surprised that I love it as much as I do. I always figured I'd be more of an early childhood or elementary kind of person but nope, this is the population I was meant to work with.

Which I guess sort of makes sense--I do WRITE Young Adult stories after all. :)

Here's the thing, most of these students haven't had the best support systems in their lives. Not all of them, but I'd…
