It’s been so long my dear friends! Don’t worry, I’ll spare you the excuses. Instead, just humor me and pretend to care as I give a brief life update.
Adulthood: I officially graduated from university (miracles happen). I’m a real adult these days. I pay bills and file taxes and even spent hours pouring over different healthcare plans today. I mean, I also spent a few hours watching Buzzfeed videos, but we won’t talk about that.
Location: Straight after graduation, I packed my bags, left the farm (kidding), and ventured out to the big city. Los Angeles, that is. I moved here for all the usual reasons, becoming an artist and changing the world and all that. What better time to be naive then my twenties?
Projects: So my “ticket” to Los Angeles was an internship at NBC, and a “plan” to become a screenwriter. To be honest I haven’t done that much screenwriting, but I have dedicated time to a few other artistic pursuits. I’m working on another novel, working title In Time. I started a food blog called eatsleepreheat which you all should check out. AND I got my first real guitar! I’m in love. With the guitar that is. #foreveralone. Anywho, this brings me to another major project: music. I started a Youtube channel that I intend to dedicate to it, as a means of forcing myself to practice. I’m hoping posting this will mean I’ll be too ashamed to stop posting, even when I’d rather watch Buzzfeed videos.
I hope you all check out my channel. It will consist of songs I’ve written as well as a few food related videos as a complement to eatsleepreheat. I’ll add a videos section to this blog so you can can see what I’m posting on there. I’m sure you’re just dying to see what sort of Oscar worthy gold I’ll be posting, so I’m giving you a sneak peak below. Fingers crossed to me doing a better job with the channel than I have with this blog 🙂

Hello friends! I know it’s been a while but I’m currently finishing up my last semester of college, so things have been a bit hectic! I know everyone’s been holding their breaths waiting for an update on How to Get Your Heart Broken (kidding/ not kidding) so I figured I would give the people what they want! March 21st is coming up so soon I can’t believe it!!
This weekend I got my Createspace proof, so I thought I would post a little about that and provide feedback for anyone interested in publishing with them. The book looks great, my friends have all remarked about how it looks like a “real” book (I forgive them). The cover looks AMAZING. The format all turned out as it should.
For those of you that are curious, the dimension I picked were 5.5X8.5. I went with cream paper and a matte cover. I used a few different fonts in the book and they all turned out great. The pictures on my bio page also came out clearly. I know that some people have complained about Createspace online, and I’m sure there are higher chances for mistakes when you order a lot of books, but I am very satisfied with my proof!
As someone who has always wanted to be an author, I was ecstatic the moment I was finally able to hold my book in my hands. If you are interested in publishing one of your works, I definitely recommend Createspace (I know it may seem like it, but this really isn’t an ad).
But I’ll stop talking now. Here’s a sneak peak intro How to Get Your Heart Broken:
That is all for now. But don’t worry, I will be back with more updates about HGYHB soon now that there are only a few weeks left!!! Leave me your comments and questions. And Happy Belated Valentines!
All the love,
Hello friends! As promised, I have a short teaser from HEART for you all. You can forward to two tomorrow and then the final three on Friday, to celebrate release day! This one is from the first story in the collection, which is called “The European Boy.” In case you missed it, check out yesterday‘s post for the official HEART Spotify playlist.That’s all for now, thanks for reading 🙂
I know it’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog, but I’ve been doing pretty well with the other one! Anyone, I wanted to let you all know what I’ve been up to.
First of I started blogging for a digital magazine called Ennui. Yepee! I’m writing about all things related to books so check it out! One of the things I want to do on their is author interviews. So I am currently looking for YA authors that have recently published a work (both traditional published and self-published). So if you fit this description, be sure to comment below and maybe I can help you publicize your book!
In other news, I have dedicated this summer to writing (and being unemployed, obviously). I plan on finally releasing How to Get Your Heart Broken. I’m also working on writing another novel that I am REALLY excited about (more on that later)! And if you’ve visited my other blog, you will know that I’ve been working on an old manuscript of mine called Fallen.But RIGHT NOW, I’m fixin’ to release a short story collection called HEART. It’s coming VERY SOON (Jeez, I’m really sorry for abusing the ALL-CAPS but I just can’t contain my EXCITEMENT!). Anywho, HEART should be released in about a week. It’s a collection of romantic short stories in the young adult and new adult genre and it’s going to include an excerpt from How to Get Your Heart Broken. Of course, you all will be the first to know when it comes out, and I’ll probably spend the week bombarding you all with updates (forgive me). But get excited!!!!
Alright, that’s pretty much all I can think of for now. But I will talk to you all very soon, if you miss me be sure to visit me at my other blog. Or follow me on twitter, since I’m actually twittering pretty regularly now! Miracles do happen.
