July has been good to me! The Texas heat? Not so much.
Happy Monday! I’m very excited to announce that I am now represented by the awesome Kim Lionetti of BookEnds Literary! @BookEndsKim 🎉😄🎉

The biggest, most exciting part of July was that I signed with my agent, Kim Lionetti for my new YA novel, SASHA CADE’S DEATHWISH. Seeing as how I first started looking for an agent in 2009, this was a pretty epic part of my July/year/life.
I’ve also seen the cover for my next YA book, BREAKUP SUPPORT GROUP, coming out November 1st of this year. I can’t show you guys yet, but trust me, IT IS SO CUTE!! I can’t wait for the reveal and will let you all know when the signups are posted. You’re going to want to squee over this cover with me.
In reading news, I finished these books:
My current TBR shelf has at 15 books on it (eek!) and the new Kasie West book will be here in two days, so make that 16. I’m going to need to read a lot faster to catch up any time soon.
This month I also ate a chocolate dipped Moon Pie, which was probably the second best thing to happen to me besides getting an agent. I also saw Stonehenge! Well, the one in Texas. Pretty cool.
As for what’s next, the month of August will be fun and technical. I am finishing up edits for BREAKUP SUPPORT GROUP, and also making a few revisions to SASHA CADE’S DEATHWISH. At the same time (because I can never do one thing at a time) I’m working on a new book proposal and plan to have at least 15k words written within a week. I’m currently at 4300. Send coffee. I’ll need it!
Let me know about your July in the comments!
