Hey, everyone! I just wanted to let you know that if I suddenly go AWAL for a week or so, it’s probably because our little Jelly Bean has arrived! She’s not due for two more weeks, but she’s acting like she might come sooner. You never know, right?
In the meantime, I’m trying like mad to get my first novel, Before Beauty: A Retelling of Beauty and the Beast published. Hopefully, it’ll be ready within the next week before Miss Jelly Bean decides to make her appearance. The book’s all done, we’re just trying to tie up some loose ends first.
For those of you subscribed to my email list, I just sent out chapters 1-4 as a PDF file so you can get a sneak peak! I sent out the drafts of 1 – 3 earlier, but this file should be more polished and ready to go…and have an extra chapter! If you’re not subscribed to my email list yet, please do so! I’ll make sure you get a copy, even if I’ve already sent the initial one out. It’s free, and you unsubscribe anytime you want (although I hope you’ll want to stay). Typically, I send out one general newsletter per month. It provides links to that month’s blog posts, as well as extra resources not mentioned in my blogs. I also send out pieces of my writing samples so you get stuff ahead of everyone else.
Also, I’m going to be sending everyone on my email list a coupon for the book once it’s published, so keep an eye out for that newsletter. I hope you all have a wonderful week, and please don’t hesitate to contact me. I might be a little later than usual in responding, but I’ll definitely get back to you!
