Odds, ends and exciting news!

I'm actually a little shocked I'm blogging right now. I'm not only exhausted, but Jolene Perry is sitting across the table from me on her last night in town. She's making a quick call home, so I'm checking in with you guys!

We had a FAB weekend. Jolene, Steph Campbell, Wendy Higgins and I all went to LA on Friday. We enjoyed our first day of SCBWI and did a lot of girl talk. Here we all are hanging out.


Jolene was watching Wendy's finger for some reason. LOL.


On Saturday Chrisa Desir came in. We did more SCBWI stuff. There was an awesome workshop given by Jay Asher. I seriously learned SO much from it. It was injecting suspense into your novel. This is us him! Did I mention he's hilarious? Well he is. Totally.


So, so so cool!

And because we're crazy like that, we had five women and two beds. This is what Saturday night looked like.


We got to me the fun, super sweet, lovely Ms. Morgan Shamy in person. LOVE her. She was just a great as I knew she would be.

It was an awesome weekend and I miss everyone already. I'm thinking we need to plan our next trip!

And now for my good news....

Drumroll...

I have signed with agent Jane Dystel of Dystel and Goderich! YAY. I'm still self-publishing a lot of my work, but I have more options now, too. It's really exciting. I feel honored to have her in my corner. She's awesome.

And speaking of self publishing, I'll be releasing MEASURING UP soon. Want to see the cover? It's pretty.


You can add it on Goodreads HERE

That's all from me. Talk to you soon. Hope you had a great weekend.
