Ein kleines Zitat aus einer Postkarte vom Schauspiel Frankfurt. Es passt perfekt: Ich hab seit etwas mehr als einer Woche jeden Tag zwölf Stunden Proben an der Uni, um ein eigenes Stück auf die Beine zu stellen. Ich bin tot müde (aber es lohnt sich. Glaub ich. Hoffentlich.) Ich wäre froh, wenn es bald wieder etwas ruhiger wird, um mich wieder mehr dem Schreiben widmen zu können.⠀ ⠀ #schauspielfrankfurt #schauspiel #uni #proben #zitat #book #books #lesen #bookstagram #wattpaddeutsch #wattpad #zitate #bibliophil #amediting #amwriting #buch #bücher #bücherwurm #lesen #bookstagram #writersofig #schreiben #wattpad #autor #booknerd #authorlife #igreads

Listen! My word for the year is INTENTIONAL and I mean it! Every step I take, every move I make is ON PURPOSE. This is the year that I take back everything the devil stole from me.

Registration day! My first conference was in 2010. I learned so much and grew so much and got published in 2015. Joined Storymakers. Now I've been on the committee for three years, the last two as a coordinator for our Thursday Workshops. I get to work with amazing people! Like my co-coordinator @aftenbrook . Going to this conference quite literally changed my life. You should come! #storymakers18 #writersconference #authorlife

Just one more week until ESCAPADES goes live!!!

She has a thriving business, great friends, a devoted husband, an adorable daughter, and a scorching hot sex life that would be the envy of any married couple. Then, one tragic loss flips her world upside down. Floundering and unsure of how to cope with their grief, Alyssa and her husband drift apart until they are living as roommates instead of a deeply connected couple. Alyssa will do anything to get the intense passion back into her life and marriage, no matter how far out of the box she has to step. If there is one thing tattoo shop owner Derek knows, it’s that once he set his sights on his wife, he never wanted another woman. Years together haven't begun to put a dent in his desire for her. But everything falls apart when the anguish of loss barges into their lives. Adrift in his own suffering, Derek doesn’t realize how damaged his marriage is until his wife forces him to confront their issues. Now, he’ll do whatever it takes to get their lives back on track, even if the plan seems outrageous. #newrelease #preorder #romance #author #authorlife #amwriting #kindle #ibooks #kobo #nook

Finding your voice? Meh, how about just discovering, noticing and knowing your voice. Figuring out our ‘voice’ in writing takes a long time to develop. It takes constant practice and dedication to writing, playing, journaling and listening to ourselves. Fear Not. Don’t stop, just keep writing! Learn to master it by understanding it. What it truly takes, is HONESTY! Just be YOU!! #writersofinstagram #writing #authorlife #creativewriting #getpublished #authenticity #leadership

ARCs of Marriage of Inconvenience are out in the wild... which means I’ll be laying low for a bit o.O I wrote Kat and Dan's story to be the end, and it's so sad to me that it is the end, but beyond that-- beyond the sad-- what I want more than anything is to have written "an end" worthy of the characters, the series, and you, my readers.️️️ #booklovers #bookworm #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookpic #booknerd #bibliophile #booklove #igreads #bookish #booknerdigans #booklover #selfpublished #indieauthor #bookgram #booknerdigan #authorlife #bookloversunite #booktography #bookishfeatures #bookishthings #igbooks #authorsofinstagram #bookstafeatures #mybookishfeatures #bookworms #writersofinstagram #selfpublishing #reading #amreading
