My story!

I got the go-ahead to share my 100-word microfiction story!! The assignment was to write a story that includes chasing something (however you want to interpret the concept of chasing something) and the word “grow”. It can be in any genre(s). I had one brave guesser (shout-out to Jewish Young Professional!) on my guess-my-genre post,Continue reading “My story!”

Win an Amazon gift card!

Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a great day today. I have a fun contest down below. I’ve been hard at work on my memoir, and I’ve been getting super-useful feedback from Sonya’s writer’s group. I accepted a long time ago that no one can write a great novel (or novel-length memoir) withoutContinue reading “Win an Amazon gift card!”

Ambiguously good!

I have good news of an ambiguous nature. I think I’m golden to compete in this weekend’s microfiction final! Go me! I waited 24 hours to hear back from Charlie and then I figured he can’t handle interacting with me due to my constant hysterics. (I totally don’t blame him.) So I took a gambleContinue reading “Ambiguously good!”

My one shot at redemption.

I had a complete meltdown a while back, just over a month ago I think, when someone who I really don’t like won the NYC Midnight short story competition. I was just very affronted by it, because she’s not a good person. On the forum, she’s a snarky bitch, an instigator, and a very patronizingContinue reading “My one shot at redemption.”

Writing, editing, and family news!

Hey, everyone! I hope everyone out there is having a great day. I’ve been hard at work on my memoir, and I’ve noticed that the opening chapters are boring. Ugh. I’m not sure how to fix it. I think the content is necessary to lay the groundwork of everything that comes after it. In otherContinue reading “Writing, editing, and family news!”

Shameless self-promotion!

I’ve been feeling better today and figured I’d do some self-promotion here of my books! I like to do that ever so often. Click on a book cover to find its Amazon page! Eighteen-year-old Beth Leonard is a safety girl. She follows the rules and obeys the law. But playing it safe won’t protect herContinue reading “Shameless self-promotion!”

The check is in the mail.

This is freakin’ hilarious. As you all know, I’ve been helping Mother at her condo and also taking her out for errands and such. She’s trying to organize her living space, and often she’ll give me small stuff that she doesn’t want. Most recently it was a conch shell. I thought it was pretty, butContinue reading “The check is in the mail.”

Book Review: My Best Friend’s Exorcism

My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix is a dreadful book. It features a killer cover which won me over at the bookstore. (Note: this review will contain spoilers about one particular plot point. But I honestly don’t know how the main story line is resolved, or what’s up with the possession and its subsequentContinue reading “Book Review: My Best Friend’s Exorcism”
