NaNoWriMo 2k19

NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month for those of you who don’t know) is ‘write’ around the corner!

(FYI, that pun was 1000% intended)

A few months ago, I announced my new project, Oops. I have done a lot of planning for this literary-masterpiece-to-be, but not very much writing. As everyone knows, writers spend very little time actually writing. Observe this highly accurate pie-chart:

With college, a job, and a social life (pfffft), can you really blame me? However, in the month of November, I have pledged to work my butt off and write this first draft! You can follow my NaNo journey here.

I don’t have a *real* blub written up yet, but here is a really crappy one that get’s the point across:

Low-key (okay high-key) rebellious Christian teen becomes pregnant. Said teen must then deal with the struggles of self-forgiveness, judgment, pregnancy, and the meaning of true love.

Any support (especially in the form of a large Dunkin iced coffee, cream and sugar, with caramel and pumpkin swirl) would be greatly appreciated!

NEW BOOK

Hi!! I’m so hyped to be officially annoucing a new story in the works! This will be my first ever FULL-LENGTH novel! At this point, I’m not sure whether I will self-publish this one or go the traditional publishing route. Take a look below to see the work-in-progress cover and blurb!

Oops

Eloise “Ellie” Ainsley was your stereotypical, “goody-two-shoes” Christian teenager – she never swore, always dressed modestly, and owned at least two bible verse tee-shirts. But all that changes when, after a big lapse of judgment, Ellie discovers she’s pregnant.

Despite the many changes happening in her present, she can’t help but think back to the past. How can God forgive her for what she did if she can barely forgive herself?

Follow Ellie as she deals with strange looks, self-forgiveness, 2-am cravings, and the undeniable fact that her life is no longer just about her. Then again, was it ever supposed to be?

I’m not sure on the release date yet, so I’ll keep you all updated! Cannot WAIT for you all to meet Eloise and hear her story.
