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!
Want to receive an eARC of At Her Fingertips? Fill out this form! Review copies will be sent out around middle April. There is no deadline for reviews.
And … that’s it! I’m sorry this post had to be so short.

What? I have a sudden and inexplicable desire to tell you about this book! I mean, people have been asking (oh, shush, they have
*pretends I have fans* *doesn’t have fans*) about Alice Unanswered, and so here goes!
I actually do have a reason for posting this right now. I hit 25K with Alice Unanswered! Now, granted, I haven’t typed it all up yet … but knowing that I have 25K is very comforting. Even if I’m not sure of the exact number.
And so … yes, I am completing turning over my plans for this year in which I wasn’t going to start writing AlUn until April. Right now, this book is begging to be written … and who am I to refuse?

This was a post I planned for just before the 12 Days of Christmas party, but I ended up doing other post and saving this one until later and whoosh! It’s January!
In this post I’ll be talking about my plans for finishing off the rather long and complicated series that The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy is … and how a small, over-achieving bit of me wants to do that this year.
(Also, before I forget, HAPPY NEW YEAR MA PEEPS. I hope 2018 is an amazing year for you! God bless!)

Hey there! It’s almost 2018! *much excitement/confusion/anticipation* Can you believe it? I sure can’t. It seemed like only yesterday I was doing that stupid video about New Year’s Resolutions that was super boring.
By the way, ‘Remembrance Day’ is apparently sort of the British ‘Veteran’s Day.’ Which makes that one British book I read called Remembrance make more sense. I was like, “This is a great book, but I don’t see anyone remembering anything?” *is a goof* *is unashamed of that fact*
NOW … let it be known that I have a ton to say in the introduction so that whole paragraph about “remembrance” was in bad taste as now the rest of the introduction will have to be bumped past the original introduction. *has rules about the numbers of paragraphs in the introduction* *shrugs*

First of all, before I begin this last NaNo update … can we give a round of applause to my insta-graphic format? *a couple people clap* *everyone gives me a weird look* *I go hide in a cave and live out the rest of my days as a hermit*
Really, though. It was so easy to just change the text in the circle and the background image to another Scotland picture. #NaNoLifeSavers*
After this update, we’ll return to our normal posting schedule. Throughout December, there are going to be some fun posts. For a while, we’ll have all Christmas-themed, which is gonna be tons of fun.
*I should totally remember this and write a list of #NaNoLifeSavers next year.

Guess what? I hit 40,000 yesterday! *cue cheering* Only 10K to go! Well … until I hit my goal. After that, I’ll probably have another 10K of writing until the book is finished … maybe more!
I feel like I’m not very far into the book yet. I’m officially on point 19 out of 38. So … almost twenty points to go. So technically I could get up to 80,000.
However, I don’t think I will. I think I’ll end up skimming over a good half of the points or reassembling scenes as the story progresses. And, of course, revisions will take out a big chunk in the end.
Enter this post.
Wow, can you believe it’s already day four?! NaNoWriMo is flying by! I mean, four out of thirty isn’t much (only about 13%), but it’s still several days which I’ve spent writing like a maniac.
But, before I start talking about my (amazing) NaNo progress, let’s talk about my last minute prep.
Really all my prep was last minute. I didn’t start outlining until early October, and then I put it off and put it off until … I did most of it a week before NaNo, quite a chunk of it on October 31st!

Hello ladies and gents!
Welcome to my blog … and to my THIRD post in Five Fall Favorites 2017! I’m sure you remember the amazing blog party we did last year, and if you don’t, this invitation will give you the highlights:

Good morning, ladies and gents! We’ve only got a little less than a week of blog tour to go … and though that is sad
(I want people to keep on talking about me – I mean, my books – forever), it’s also good that soon I’ll be back to my normal posting schedule.
A couple things I forgot to say before:
I’m going to announcing both the giveaway winners and one other thing (that is important … and hush-hush just now, so shhh!) on Saturday morning (as early as possible, though it may drift into afternoon knowing me).
Also, if you have a burning desire for a signed paperback copy of one of my books, that is a possibility (if you’re in the US; I can’t ship out of country). It costs just a couple dollars more than a paperback would cost you on Amazon + shipping and handling.
So #expensive. I’m thinking about $15 for TDS or IvIn and $12 for TLOTV. But I need to work on it. I’d like to charge less, but I have to pay to have them shipped here then pay to ship them to you … which is expensive.

Here I am on this glorious (103 degree) Sunday afternoon, writing this post and wishing I was in England. Where 80 degrees is a heat wave, according to one of my English friends. Or Scotland. I’d rather be in Scotland than England, to be honest. Or Ireland. Either one.
Seriously, though, I don’t mind the heat. It isn’t accompanied by tremendous humidity here like in some states, so it’s not unbearable. It’s great for swimming (even though I’ve yet to swim this year, haha).
Today we have a vlog (yippy?! It made this post ridiculously late because it takes ten years to upload, but that’s all right …), and I’ll also be talking a little bit about my plans for spin-off short stories/novellas for this series.
