NOTE: I don't post to this blog super-duper often anymore, because I'm busy writing, well, books. (Read more about that here.) For more up-to-date, day-to-day ramblings, visit my Facebook page.

Cover Reveal at Last!

Yes, and this time, it's mine! Book blogger IceyBooks is hosting an exclusive reveal of the cover of my forthcoming fantasy novel for kids of all ages, The Key & the Flame. And to make it extra special, I'll be giving away an advanced reader's copy (ARC)* of the book too. Enter the giveaway over at IceyBooks as well, and thanks for sharing my excitement!

-- SORRY, BUT THIS GIVEAWAY HAS CLOSED --

*P.S. Wondering what an ARC is? It's a bound copy of the uncorrected proofs of the book, usually handed out to book reviewers in advance of publication. It looks like a paperback, with all the elements of the finished copy--cover, dedication, etc. But it will have a few typos.

Writerly Advice

These doughnuts have nothing to do with the post. Still. Made ya look.
This is a big cheater of a blog post, because I'm using it only to call your attention to a new tip sheet I've written, Advice to Aspiring Writers (downloadable as a PDF file). There's where you'll find my general tip sheet on what to do after you've finished writing your book, where to find an agent, and so on. You'll also find links to sites written by people who know loads more than I do on the subject. It's worth a look.
