YAY FOR THE BLOG TOUR! *can’t believe it’s starting* *is dying of excitement* Are you ready to have tons of fun?
Wow, this month went fast! This tour may seem like I put it together carefully, but honestly, I’ve been rushed! Still, nothing bad has happened … yet. 😉
Today is historical day. This means we’ll be talking about history (
duh). It also means other things, though, so y’all who don’t love history too much, stick around!

ANNNNDDDDDD … IT’S HERE! *insert excited wild crazy screaming* At Her Fingertips is now live on Amazon in Kindle and Paperback format!
Whoa … *takes a deep breath* I’m actually getting a little emotional here! This is my favorite book that I’ve written so far, and I can’t believe it’s out there. I can’t wait for you to read it!
You can buy yourself a copy on Amazon, wait for other sales channels (hopefully appearing over the week), or order a signed paperback copy here. Now, on to the blog tour!

That’s right. I’m talking about God on here. I know in the past I’ve made this blog mostly about writing. However, I just can’t do that anymore. It’s untrue to myself. I am a Christian. I’m not ashamed of it.
And yes, I’ve never been shy about sharing my (frankly offensive to the world at large) opinions, but … God deserves more than the occasional reblog or sly comment. He deserves some real posts!
So from now on, I will occasionally post about things God has laid on my heart or such. It won’t be the main theme of the blog – I couldn’t post consisting about Christian-related things; I’d run out of ideas – but it will happen about once a month.

Only fifteen days until At Her Fingertips releases. Am I nervous? No, not at all! Why would you ask such a silly question?
Okay, I’ll admit I’m a little scared. Partially because of the fact that people will be able to purchase my baby … and partially because I have a lot to do in that short amount of time. *hyperventilates a little*
Today I’ll be sharing some details about the blog tour schedule with you as well as pictures of my proof copy & talking about that process. (In case you’re still interested, you can still sign up for the blog tour until Monday.)

I think we’ve already established that writing a first draft can be hard. There is beauty in it … but also great danger.* Okay, “great evil” may be overdoing it, but it’s definitely very difficult.
The first draft is the point at which most authors give up on their story. They just stop writing, and another set of characters, another world, another plot dies.**
So how can you keep your novels breathing in their tender first draft stage?
*This is your cue to leave because I cannot be serious today for some reason.
**I am being so dramatic today, helllllp.

I don’t want March to be over yet. *sniffles* April is going to be super busy, and March was slightly more restful than months past (what with our spring break, having most of this week off work due to the school’s spring break, and now Easter).
On the other hand … I’m excited for April! With Camp NaNo and publishing At Her Fingertips (SQUEEEEEE!), it’s going to be packed full … but I’m going to survive! Somehow! Magically!
Now, because I can’t resist telling you one more time, the signups for the At Her Fingertips blog tour are now open! If you have a blog and would like to help me out, click here and sign up!

From the 10th through the 14th of March, we were in California. Oceanside, California, to be more exact. Actually, if we want to be 100% exact, we were on Camp Pendleton (my brother-in-law’s a Marine).
I’ve already done this before and talked about it on my blog, so when I was trying to think of a creative way to recap it all for you, I was running a blank. Until I realized something.
You need to know my opinions on Cali! So … I decided to review it! Only my review method are going to be a little … different. (And by different I mean crazy.) (And by crazy I mean please slap me in a straight jacket.) (*maniacal laugh*)

As bloggers, sometimes we’re overflowing with creativity. But other times? Well, not so much. I go back and forth between being super excited about blogging … and just wanting to throw the towel in on the whole thing.
But you know what? My mama didn’t raise no quitter … and neither did she raise someone who doesn’t milk every opportunity for a blog post for what it’s worth.
(Actually, I think I came up with the latter by myself, but whatevs.)
I’m currently going through a period of blogger depression. But instead of letting it get to me, I’m writing this blog post!* Without further ado, here are my tips for blog-inspiration-flowing-ness!
*The fact that I’m currently uninspired might make me unqualified for the topic, but let’s not talk about that. Let’s talk about HOW AMAZING I AM. #amazingkell

Guess what? There’s a big paperback sale going on! That’s right; a group of Indie Christian authors (including myself) are flocking together to offer discounted paperbacks.
There are sooo many incredible books on sale for such amazing prices … how can you resist? *dangles books in front of your face*
Signed paperback copies of my novel, The Dressmaker’s Secret, are available for just $8.99 with free shipping! That’s a $4 discount! You can order your copy here.

Last night, the cover was officially revealed with a big Facebook party, but now I’m sharing it with y’all, my favorite readers. 😛 (Aw, c’mon, don’t feel bad that you weren’t the first! You were first in my heart … really!)
Because I’m short of time, this is going to be a short post … but hopefully you’ll forgive me? I’m going on vacation after this, and I won’t be back for quite some time. (Which means there will be no post next Wednesday, sadly.)
Without further ado …
Before you go, I have two things to announce.
I’m looking for blog tour participants!
