Announcements: 

In the latest review, The Bookie Monster highly recommends Take Me Tomorrow, and you can read why by clicking here. But here is small quote: “Once this story gets rolling, which is right in chapter one, you have to just keep turning the pages. It wasn’t my plan, but I read it in an afternoon.” If you want to check out my latest novel, click here for Amazon.

Website Wonders: 

Every month, I share all of the websites I come across that I find helpful, humorous, or just awesome. Below, you’ll find all of September’s Website Wonders categorized as so: Reading, Writing, and Inspiration Art and Life. Between each category is a photo. If you enjoy these websites, be sure to like my Facebook page because I share even more websites and photos like this there.

Enjoy!

This week has been pretty crazy–I’ve been preparing for the cover reveal on Dec. 1. and there will be an exciting event that happens during it, so be sure to check it out.

Since I’ve been busy, I haven’t had time to write up a “Writing Tips” blog post or something else along those lines, so I apologize, but today I’m just sharing the interesting, exciting, and helpful websites I’ve come across lately. If you’re on my Facebook Author Page, you’ve probably seen most of these. But I hope you find more that you might like. Check them out:

And I leave with a quote: “All know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop.” – Kabir
