So there is this challenge that’s going on during the month of February on social media called #AuthorLifeMonth. The way it works is that you have to post a photo for the next 28 days of the given topic. Of course, by the time day 5 rolls around, I’ve already given up. I suppose that’s why they call it a “challenge.” With that being said, I figured I would kill 28 birds with two stones (or in this case, two blog posts). Day 15-28 (but isn't it a Leap Year?!) will come at the end of the month!
DAY ONE through FOUR:
DAY FIVE: Comp covers
I absolutely LOVE these covers by Okay Creations.
DAY SIX: Fan art/edit
Thanks Robin!! By the way y'all, if you're a fan of erotic romance, you need to check this out: Waiting For the Sun
DAY SEVEN: Writing music
DAY EIGHT: Awesome moment
This is taken from an e-mail I received from one of my first beta readers
DAY NINE: Challenge overcome
I posted this the day I finished the first draft of Never Stop Falling. I couldn't believe that I had actually written an entire full-length novel. I cried as soon as I typed the very last sentence.
DAY TEN: Non-author photo
I don't know if this counts as a "non-author" photo because I made this trip to Big Sur since I wanted to use these places in my story! This is me at Bixby Bridge in Big Sur, California.
DAY ELEVEN: A fave review
This was one of the first reviews that I received. So humbled to have received such an awesome review.
DAY TWELVE: Killed darlings
I had so much anxiety the day that I received my manuscript back from my editor. My manuscript went from 99K words to 84K words. There were so many lines in my story that I wanted to keep, but at the end of it all, I ended up with an even better manuscript. These were a few of my "darlings" that were killed off from one of Nick's chapters!
DAY THIRTEEN: A fave book in genre
I have too many favorites to name, but these are a few of my favorites!
DAY FOURTEEN: Fave of your covers
I've only published one book (so far!), so we'll have to revisit this topic when I publish my second.
Until next week, HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!
