Last year, I posted 25 Spoiler-Free Facts About The Dressmaker’s Secret and Ivy Introspective.
Now it’s time for 25 Spoiler-Free Facts about my most recent novel, At Her Fingertips. *super excited* *jumps up and down* *spins in a circle* Hopefully you’ll enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them!
Towards the end of this post there’s also a signup form for people who would like to alpha/beta read Once a Stratton. I’m only looking for a few and the timeline is pretty tight, but if you can, and I’d love to have you!

I think I’ve talked a little bit about my plans for Once a Stratton – I’m never very tight-lipped with y’all! – but I’ve never gone into detail about what to expect in the next couple months and years.
So … today I’d like to write a post briefly explaining my plans and goals for the novel. And I know I’ve talked about this project a lot (well, one blog post‘s worth!), but I’m super excited about it! And when I’m excited, I ramble! (To state the obvious, hehe.)
I’ll also be asking for beta/alpha readers soon (kinda combining them this time around because I need speed!), so that’s exciting! But for now, let’s talk about my plans!

*blinks* Okay, so, April was … pretty crazy? And I only half-survived it, but I’m here, and I’m better, and it’s all good. *two thumbs up*
‘m still reeling a bit from April (five days into May, I know, it’s hard to adjust!). So making plans for May feels distant. Combined with the fact that it’s my last month of school … wowza.
Let’s just not think about May for a few hundred words and recap what happened in April. Because maybe if I can think about what happened I can figure out process it all. *shudders*

And today’s the day when it all ends! *can’t believe it* *is again a little teary* Time for wrapping up all the posts, for announcing the giveaway winners … and for taking a break!
At Her Fingertips is officially out in the world. It’s been published on quite a few sales channels – including Barnes & Nobles, Apple, and Kobo – which you can view here.
Honestly, I’m almost at a loss as to what I’ll do now that it’s all over! I’ve been so stressed and yet excited about this for months and months … and now it’s over. And yet it’s such a relief, too!

However, before that, we have today’s posts! Once again, we have an amazing post line up … let’s check today’s bloggers out!

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!
From April 23rd through April 27th, At Her Fingertips will be traveling around the internet. You can sign up here. I’d love to have you, no matter how small or large your blog. The more the merrier!
Any questions can be asked in the comments! I may not reply for a couple days, but I will try to.
I’m looking for Advanced Readers!

Outlining is time-consuming. If you do it in any depth, it’s pretty difficult … but is it worth it? Why not just skip the extra step completely and move on to the actual writing – that’s what you’re here for, after all, isn’t it?
In this post, I’ll be “outlining” (couldn’t resist) my top ten reasons why I think you should outline before you ever consider writing your book.
Now before we go any further, a disclaimer: this post is unashamedly pro-plotter. However, I do understand that pantsing works for some people very well. This post is about why you should outline … but if it doesn’t end up applying to you after you’ve done some experimenting, go and plot no more!

I’ve heard people say that reading fictional stories is a waste of time, and I wanted to point out why this is not true.
However, it was simply too big a subject for me! Books have taught me certain lessons … but they’ve taught other people completely different things. And I hate to narrow this broad subject down to just my opinions and experiences!
So, through Google Forms, I asked a variety of readers from social media the following questions: What does reading mean to you? How have novels helped you in your life? Why are they worth something to you?
Here are their responses.

That’s right! For Valentine’s Day, we (meaning me and several other Indie authors) are offering several free and discounted ebooks (February 14th-15th). Special thanks for Amanda Tero for putting this all together!
Among these books are The Dressmaker’s Secret and The Lady of the Vineyard (both free today and tomorrow). Hopefully you all will be able to snag a copy! (If you do, tell me what you think!
Authors are always wondering if their books are any good.)
But … my books aren’t the only one sale/discounted! Be sure to check out these books from some of my favorite authors as well as several I myself have never read – but am looking forward to!
