Sharing my Epic news

Hey, Everyone. I've been so busy lately I've had to schedule a time to breathe. Why so busy? Well, let me share. You all know I love to do that.

1. This is a big one. You know how I published a book last year. And then a novella. And then another book. Well, I thought, because of something else big that's happening in my life right now that I'll share in the next section, I could try to submit my work to a publisher. You know, the whole doing-it-all-by-yourself thing was empowering and all but oh so much work. So, I submitted Finding Me. And waited. And waited some more. Then I received an email that said I was ACCEPTED. **Throws confetti. Waves and shouts and does a little dance** I had to read it a few times to make sure they were really talking about me and that they were serious. They were. I'm super excited about this new venture. I'll be re-releasing the first two books in the trilogy. Unfortunately, the third book will be pushed back a little. But no worries. It is complete and ready for editing. So now I can officially say I’m with Booktrope Publishing!

2. That other big news I had...I'm in school again. I decided to get my masters degree in Library Science since I hadn't hit the million dollar mark yet on my book sells. :) *crossing fingers -just one more carefully worded tweet* I am a perpetual nerd sucking up all the information I can so it was only a matter of time before I made the decision to return to school. Plus, honestly, me and the day job are not on speaking terms right now. Seriously! So wish me luck and giant mugs of extra rich coffee.

3. I wrote two short stories that will be featured in two different anthologies. Both are releasing in October. *You know what I was doing this summer. Wearin' out them keys* I'm really excited about them both, but I'm especially excited that one is an adult horror piece. As everyone knows, I write YA fantasy, so this was a big deal for me. I loved it. I'll share more on the two anthologies in a later post. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you'll see the teasers start to pop up.  

Well, that's it for me...because my face just hit the keyboard I'm so tired. **Wipes drool evidence from the “A” key.** What have you all been up to?

Have a great day. Read a book and smile!


  1. How exciting, Dawn! Congrats on your big news. Woo-hoo!
