Hi, Everyone,

I am looking for reviewers for my upcoming YA novel Into the Blind.

Here are the blurb and the cover.

In a world where everyone is gifted, be it in dancing, lightning-bringing, or death-giving, Ever is born…all-powerful.

For this gift, she is kidnapped and trafficked at birth. Fifteen years later, Ever still hasn’t seen even a glimmer of her powerful gift. Locked in an abandoned mall in New York City, she’s fighting to survive her captivity, her brutal guards, and the other gifted kids in her cell. She would do anything to escape.

Fox is gifted in time manipulation. Like Ever, he hasn’t come into his gift yet; like Ever, he hates the mall; and like Ever, he longs to be free. But there’s one thing he values above his freedom—it’s Ever’s love…

…yet, when the two make a desperate attempt to escape, this attempt proves so dark and twisted that it just might destroy Ever’s love for Fox.

The last several weeks have been stressful and challenging.  As a writer, technical difficulties such as having your internet not working is pretty much like throwing several wrenches into all the work that you are doing.  Since most of what I do I need the internet for I literally felt a little crippled in my craft.  But that doesn’t mean that I didn’t manage to get out a few blog posts during that time (that’s what libraries are for right, lol).  I questioned myself or more over had my choices of following my dream questioned by many people in the last few weeks so my posts were about sustaining my dreams, being optimistic even through challenges, seeking greatness and not mediocrity, taking better care of myself for creativity’s sake, listening to that inner voice, being halfway through the year with not many tasks checked off my goal list, and what the other side of quitting would look like to me.

So please show your support and check out my latest blog posts on my Write 2 Be blog and let me know what you think.  Also please go and check out the latest issue of Write 2 Be Magazine and like the Write 2 Be Magazine fan page for updates on what’s coming soon for the Magazine and how you can become a part of the magazine!

How about an artist date to inspire boldness in your own life?

Anyone doing those campus tours?

As mother writers, do you ever worry about what your children will someday think reading it all back? Or (horrors!), that the shit will hit the fan if they ever find the unfinished drafts??? I do. So I played with erasure, the making of poetic artifacts from previously published material, to try and save my ass. Read it here:

Letting myself go ...

Sometimes I feel conflicted, right, leaving the kids behind, with others, to teach for example a night blogging class. Here's a post about the latest maelstrom of obstacles. Haiku too. Would love to hear from other moms trying to break out and how they deal with the guilt of mishaps. My Bicycle, My Chariot and The Angel Tree: Writing Despite Chaos

What's better for a parent than that time when you can finally leave your kids at home without a babysitter?
