Hi everyone!

So, it's a new year, and I have something exciting to share with you all.


That was so, so fun to write.  If you've been following me since I started this blog in 2011 to now, you'll know the journey to publication for me has been a long one.  Over the years, I went from querying agents to signing with one to going it alone once again.

Last year was the toughest year of my life.  I lost my best friend in December.  She was my first reader, my shoulder to cry on, my favorite person of all time, and I miss her every day.  I deeply regret that she is not here to see me publish a book.  But I know that she would've wanted to see me do it.  So, this one is for her.

I know that I'll make some mistakes along the way.  Going "indie" is hard--as I'm sure a lot of you authors know--but I'm going to stick it out.  I'm not scared anymore.  Or at least I'm not scared of the same things.  I want my books to find readers.  I want to make my family proud.

So, I will be publishing my debut in 2016 :).

If you'd like to follow my journey on my new author website, you can find it here:

I'll still be posting reviews here (I'm still Ninja Girl!), but I hope you'll come and visit The Cookie Jar.

Authorly peeps and blogger peeps: I'd love any advice you'd like to give me.  I write YA romance, and  it's my first time traveling this road.  Any help, wisdom, or encouragement you can spare would be greatly appreciated.  Hope you're all having a great new year and that 2016 is treating you well!

Happy reading,

Ninja Girl
