Help us celebrate SALLY SINGLETARY’S DISCOVERY release by taking a #selfie with Sally. You can take it with a book, post card, note card, anything that has Sally’s face on it. You can even draw your own! The idea is to get enough pictures of Sally out there to help spread the word. This is a fun promotion!
Be sure to tag the post with #SelfiesForSally so she can keep track.
You can post on as many social networking site you like. Each time Sally finds yours, you’ll be automatically entered into our drawing. Anyone who has signed up for our email list is automatically entered, but every additional entry increases your chances of #winning! The drawing will take place at the Official Release Party at the beginning of July! More info to come!

So a lot has happened, but at the same time, not as much as I’d like.
I’ve had a new idea, a book I’ve been working on for the past few weeks. It started as just making a few notes and has turned into 36,000 words.
Jimmy Figg is snatched by a group of hideous creatures, but the thing that has always made him a thorn in his teachers’ side and an outcast among his peers has given him a unique advantage. Can Jimmy use his ability to find out the truth behind his abduction, or will his captors succeed in their insidious plan?
I’ve been working out this idea for a few weeks and so far I’m really liking it. I am hoping it will be a good Early Young Adult addition to my repertoire of books. What do you think?
In other news, Sally Singletary’s Discovery is finally available on Kindle. Physical books are still delayed due to formatting issues. Awaiting another set of proofs right now. Hopefully these will turn out correctly and we’ll be in business!
Tears of Destiny is still on hold pending a workable cover. We’re still throwing around a few ideas, but nothing seems to have “tickled our fancy.”
Children of Earth is also on hold. I’ve had some feedback and have decided to rework the story. While most everyone who has read it has had a lot of positive things to say, I think the feedback I received is valid and warrants some consideration. Will keep you posted on the progress.
Ok, so I’ve started sending out queries to agents, which has been the most nerve wracking thing I’ve ever had to do. Here’s where you start to doubt yourself and question why you started doing this in the first place, I mean it’s only been ten years of my life I’ve devoted to developing the story for this thing and the reality is, even after all that work it could still suck and not go anywhere. Writing is a profession you do because you love it! If you write only with the expectation of being the next J.K. Rowling then you’ve missed the point. It takes a lot more than just a lot of hard work, it takes a lot of time, energy and dedication. Only then will you truly be a writer. I have a lot of people to thank for all they’ve done to provide encouragement throughout the development of this project. I hope to have a nice printed page with all their names on it when my book rolls off the press! Here’s hoping!
