It’s time to get to know author Parker Peevyhouse. She has been writing since she was young and is the proud winner of a writing contest held and judged by RL Stine. I’m a little bit jealous.
Our interview dives into her writing process, how she comes up with the amazing and unique ideas for her novels, her journey to finding an agent which shows that sometimes third time’s the charm.
Lovelies - meet my friend, Heather. She is the woman behind the blog titled Wicked Stepmom.
I came across her Instagram when I was newly on my stepmomma journey and feel so fortunate to have interviewed her. Before you listen to this amazing episode - follow her on Instagram so you never miss a post!
This episode features @aprilmwoodard who is the amazing author behind THE AEON CHRONICLES. The second book is the series is coming out soon and if you haven't read the first one - you're WAY behind. April is such an amazing author-friend to have and I'm so lucky to have been able to chat with her.
Tune in and get to know the author of DIVE SMACK - Demetra Brodsky.
Theo Mackey only remembers one thing for certain about the fire that destroyed his home: he lit the match.
Sure, it was an accident. But the blaze killed his mom and set his dad on a path to self-destruction. Everything else about that fateful night is full of gaping holes in Theo’s mind, for good reason. Maybe it’s better that way. As captain of the Ellis Hollow Diving Team, with straight A's and solid friends, he's only one semester away from securing a scholarship, and leaving his past behind.
But when a family history project gets assigned at school, new memories come rushing to the surface, memories that make him question what he really knows about his family, the night of the fire, and if he can trust anyone—including himself.
I've been feeling like an impostor in writer's clothing lately so listen in to hear my thoughts about WHY.

So your first draft is done? You've finished and now you're wondering how to attack the mountain of pages in front of you. Well, let me tell you how I go about attacking the revising process.
AND My friend Abigail Carlson joins me and we chat about how much goes into world building and how we may be too impatient for this publishing biz.
Can we talk about being stuck in the middle of a story for a moment? And how sometimes it feels like you're walking up a hill with rocks strapped to your chest and then you fall asleep on your keyboard? Well - I got stuck in the middle of my 2017 NaNoWriMo novel and I'm gonna share some of the tips and tricks I found while trying to get out of that funk.
Say hello to the lovely KA Dowling, author of The Changing Tide and amazing human being.
November means NaNoWriMo and I'm super excited to do it for the second year in a row. But sometimes, I get distracted and find myself thinking TOO hard about my story. I've definitely got a murder board started on my wall and although it seems like a little much, it's totally helpful (and mostly makes me feel cool!).
