So, it's a new year, and I have something exciting to share with you all.
I AM FINALLY GOING TO PUBLISH MY DEBUT NOVEL!!!
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!
