In the Shadows Contest!

Last night I officially finished writing IN THE SHADOWS the sequel to LARK.

*happy dance*

(feel free to join me)

(ya know ya wanna!)





Releasing Oct 1st---->That's just ONE month away!

I'm so excited about this installment of Lark's story. Well, I think I'm equal parts excited and scared out of my mind that it won't live up to your expectations. But I think that's pretty normal, right? (I hope!)
Since the editing part of the process is now in full swing, I'll start sharing teasers soon and in the mean time, because I'm just so excited to have officially typed THE END that I think a little game is in order! Who's in?

In this book Lark encounters an inscription that is written in the ancient language of the Light Elves and of course, she can't read it! (Silly girl, maybe next time you'll pay better attention when the schmexy Greyson St. Clair is trying to educate you)

I was thinking that the first person who can successfully translate the following passage should get a Lark keychain OR necklace, what do you think?

The necklaces are pretty cute, right?


You wanna play?

Good luck!

(PS this was soooo much fun! I thoroughly enjoyed making up my own language and really wish I would've done more of it in the first book. Lucky for me,  I still have a whole other book in the Lark world to write)

  2. Darkness did fall from the light and in the shadows of the plight
    Into the depths will perish all that dares disturb this pedestal.

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…
