Up and Running

 March 9, 2013
     Hey, guys! This is Day One of my website being officially worked on - but not ready for many others to view yet. I am still waiting for my cover art from Kyle Mickelsen, but when I get it I will first put it through for my book and get the going, then I will immediately after put it on here for everyone to see. I'm super excited to see it myself. I'm also waiting for the final edits which I have not heard back about, but it has only been four days since I sent it to an amazing English teacher. She does still have a job and personal life, so I'm just excited to see what happens.
     I hope to be hearing from many readers and hearing all their thoughts. Like I said before, this is my first ever experience with this, so we'll see how this works. I have many awesome author friends (Karen Hoover, Nicole Grane, Rebecca Wilhite, Elizabeth Mueller, James Duckett, Rebecca Blevins, and Jenni James) who have helped me so much. Thanks guys!

On the Road!

March 8, 2013
     I am currently working on finishing my final information for my book. I have decided on March 24 for my official publishing date. I am waiting for my cover options from my friend Kyle Mieckelsen, I am waiting for some final editing to be finished so I can revise (Thanks to Shanna Westover for doing those edits) and then I will submit my book for final review. That will take less than the day, and then I  will decide on a price and submit it.
     I will be submitting my book with Amazon Kindle. and with individual bookstores and online retailers. With the Kindles, my book should be able to appear within that day or at most that week. The others will take longer to get my book noticed: 6 to 8 weeks. I will not be able to control which book stores and/or where it is bought.
     Thank you all for being supportive with my writing and offering to help in all ways you can.

  I will use this website to give updates and to give information. Again, Thanks to all those who have and will help me on my way. This is very exciting, but I am just as new to this as many others.
Please check out my books!
