  1. Just in case you haven’t heard it enough – you’re beautiful.

    The writings good, too. πŸ˜‰

  2. well, since u r looking for an agent ..have u thought about making ur own e-book before ?! u can publish a small novel as a beginning, and if people liked it -which looks very reasonable; looking through ur writings- then it will be very easy to talk with a publishing company, that if they didn’t ask about u first.
    of course -and u probably know- that some e-books made a huge success, and even much more than some printed ones !

    1. I’ve given it some consideration, but I decided I would rather go the more traditional way of publishing for now. I don’t buy e-books or own a Kindle or Nook, and while I know releasing my book as an e-book would be a logical decision at some point, I would prefer to start by looking for an agent and hopefully securing a contract that way for print publication. Also, my primary project right now is a trilogy that I think is much better suited to print, and I don’t have anything that would serve as an introductory small novel to publish as an e-book. It is an idea, though!

  3. You’re first attempt at a novel was at age 9? Talk about ambition!

    I’ve only recently begun my hobby of writing. I was reading through some of your posts about “The 25” and I have to say it was a great read!

    Good luck with your trilogy (and NaNoWriMo)!

    1. Eve!

      Thank you kindly for the nomination! I will do a proper post for that a wee bit later today or tomorrow. I was quite surprised and feel very honoured! Thank you!

  4. I listed you as one of my fifteen recently found blogs in my acceptance of the Versatile Blogger Award – thus giving you the award, too – again! I view it as an opportunity to let people know about blogs they might not have found otherwise. And your blog is one I definitely enjoy following. Keep up the great work!

  5. Thanks for your comments on my blog. That’s so sad about half your friends having c-sections. More often than not, they are “medically necessary” because of all the medical interference – like inducing labor, pitocin, and epidurals. If you have all of things, your chances of needing major abdominal surgery just skyrocketed. I don’t understand why women don’t understand this, but I do my best to teach it.

    Good luck with your writing and perusal of publishing. It will happen one day!

  6. You have been followed. As a fellow blogger/writer (I write fiction of all sorts), I figured we should come together in packs and protect each other from those who wish to destroy us… like Stephanie Meyer.

    1. Pack heard!

      If there’s anything I learned at my conference this weekend, it’s that it’s quite nice to be a part of the pack. πŸ˜€

  7. Wait…you WON NanoWrimo? My friend just self published a book that started out as a NanoWriMo novel, but I believe it took her 2 years to finish. Congrats! That’s awesome!

    1. That just means I got to 50,000 words. πŸ™‚ They don’t judge the novels; you just win by finishing. But yep! I did finish last year. πŸ™‚

      Thanks for following my blog! Welcome to the flock! πŸ˜€

      1. Oh, I see. LOL. Well, congrats on that, too. The only “novel” I ever wrote was accidentally trashed when my dad decided to clean out his floppies (and yes, that is 5″ floppy, it was THAT long ago)

        1. Pahahaha…that is awesome! I recall those days…my first laptop took floppy disks. My children will likely never know what those even are. *Sniffle*

  8. I saw gritty Urban Fantasy, F-bombs, kittens, puppies, and unicorns. I clicked like and follow. That’s all I got to say bout that.

  9. I think you might be my favorite writer in the world right now. πŸ™‚
