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!

Sometimes I think that writers have the lowest self-esteem of any creature on this planet. We constantly judge ourselves. We second-guess word choices, plot lines, even calling ourselves a writer. We can’t even tell others about our stories without blushing!
Now, to a certain extent, it’s natural to worry about our creations like this. I mean, seriously. A writer puts a lot into his or her novels. Who wouldn’t be worried about what others will think?
But … there’s something every author should know about writing. And today I’m going to tell you about it.

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.)

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.

That’s right! The short story sequel to The Lady of the Vineyard, Flowers, is now published on Amazon Kindle! You can read more about Flowers on my website. I made a whole page for it and everything. 😛
By the way, my website was recently redone by Mukta of Design Pique Studios. It is absolutely lovely. Thank you so much, Mukta! ❤
And … that is really all I have to say. So, yes, this is an unbelievably short post, but you must forgive me. That is truly all I have to say.
Until next week,

Apologies for this post being so late! I’ve been having a busy last couple days, what with school and work and writing and editing, and I haven’t found a lot of time to blog! Plus I spent most of my blogging time working on AAWC instead of my regular book posts. 😛
Now, a couple posts back, I mentioned a story that I’m going to be working on throughout the year – “That Plot Bunny.” I also hinted in another post that it’s set during WW2, and bits and pieces about it have leaked in the comments section.
And … today it is time to delve into the world of said plot bunny! (Are you excited? I’m excited.
Talking about my books is another excuse to talk about myself.)

This is going to be short. It’s my last post for the 12 Days of Christmas party; after that, we will TRULY be back to regular posts*.
Right now, I’m going to talk about the most important birthday ever!
I’ve decided to add some brief authory updates at the end of this post just ’cause I can’t resist talking about myself. *is super egotistical* *as y’all know*
*I mean it this time! Really! Regular posts! (I bet I’m going to randomly decide to do a hiatus or something … hopefully not though …)

Well, it’s time for Day #10 of the 12 Days of Christmas Party … and today I have a special treat for you! Okay, maybe not a “special treat,” but it is something special.
It’s the release of a new short story! Esther Ashton’s New Dress is purchasable on Amazon Kindle for just $0.99, but … since I know most of y’all are cheapskates, you can also just read it here. (There’s no link. Just here on this post, haha.)
(Also, because I’m going to have this book be free whenever I get the chance, it will eventually be perma-free, and … you know. I’m not stingy. 😛 It’s a Christmas gift.)

Hello Friends! Welcome to Day Four* of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Party, hosted by the marvelous Faith L. Potts of Stories by Firefly! I’m teaming up with 21 other bloggers to share the true meaning of Christmas – and have a great time while doing it!
For my first post for the 12 Days of Christmas, I’ll be posting a blog tag that anyone is welcome to take part in. You can view the questions here on Faith’s first post.
AND … that is all! I’m leaving my regular blogging schedule behind a bit next week with a post on Monday (and another the Monday after that, Christmas Day!), but otherwise, nothing is changing … except Christmas is here!
*I didn’t do the first 3 days; I’m going to be posting 5/12 days. 12 posts in 12 days is a lot of posts! *applauds the awesome folks who are doing this* *and Faith, who is doing 24!*

Happy Wednesday, people reading this post (even if you’re not reading it on Wednesday)!
Yes, this is another post that’s getting out a wee bit late. Well, if you’re not in Pacific time (which most people I know online aren’t for whatever reason). Here, it’s not that late.
(Or at least I don’t think so; any time before eleven is early morning to me …)
We’re halfway through the months of November … but I haven’t reached halfway with my novel.
Nope, I’m not behind (I actually have 28,631 – haven’t written yet today, though), but I don’t feel that I’ve reached the midpoint of my novel. I … guess it’s gonna be a bit longer? No problem there. 🙂
READ ON, MA HOMIES
