I'm feeling Lucky

Guess what, guys? I joined the Lucky 13s! It's a group of authors who are all debuting in 2013. I joined them a couple of months ago, and it has been amazing to be able to chat with people who are all going through the same things. (If you have a debut book deal but your book isn't out yet, or if you're looking forward to that point in the future, definitely think about joining a group blog. They're an unbelievable support!)

Today is my very first day posting on the blog, where I've managed to completely twist and bend this week's theme. It's supposed to be "Dinner with our characters: What's on the menu in our books?" yet I somehow turned it into the "Girth of the First Draft."

If you haven't already become a follower of the Luckies blog, I'd definitely recommend it. It hosts over 50 amazing authors of kidlit in so many different genres! It's worth it. I swear.

See you over there!



P.S. Thank you, S.L. Hennessey! She blogs at Pensuasion, and just passed on the Kreativ Blogger award to me! I love it and its crazy spelling of creative.

Great looking blog - my first visit! Congratulations on the exciting events in your writing life.

I just wrote my first post for a young audience and loved it far more than expected. Since the post is entitled, Chocolate Chip Cookies, I am feeling a big connection here. Glad to find you blog!

Joining a debut group was one of the best things I did. The Elevensies was my support group. I don't know what I'd do without them. I'm heading over to read your post! Congrats.
