I’m thrilled to share with you a project that I’m working on right now!
It'll be a self-help guide for Stay At Home Moms, How-To Write Your First Book (Workbook Style). The idea came to me last month, and it never left. That’s when I knew I had something worth exploring further.
There’s many How-To books out there, but most are written with the notion that the reader already has some knowledge in the writing field. Eight years ago, when I began my writing journey, I had ZERO knowledge, which is why I made hundreds of mistakes. I’ve spent years honing my craft and reading and writing, and reading and writing more. I have one published book, and have written a handful of others that are still in my drawer; I learned a ton from writing these, and then moved on to writing the next.
My non-fiction book will be a step-by-step guide for moms (or stay at home dads) that have been thinking about dipping their pen into the writing arena, but don’t quite know where to start. I’ve written about 20 pages so far.

Next week, I’ll reveal more about a young-adult book that I’m in the middle of writing as well. If Ten Things I Hate About You had a book-baby with Sixth Sense, mine would be the creepy offspring.
I started querying THE ART OF KISSING DEATH (young-adult urban fantasy) last summer, before it was ready. At the time, I thought it was as good as it could be. But once I entered an online contest, I gained great critique partners who write in the same genre. From there, my book was revised 2-3 more times, and then handed to an editor. I officially began querying the polished version in the middle of January. So cross your fingers! Enter the poll below. I’m thinking of shortening the title. Please vote and help me decide!
