I can never write anything happy, even if you begged me to😅😈
✨Book Signing Annoucement✨
Paris in April? Yes please! 🙋🏻♀️
I’m so excited to announce I’ll be singing books at Romance Author & Reader Events in Paris next Spring! 🌸 I’m thrilled to meet new readers, and have one or fifty baguettes. It’s also my birthday week, so bring on the champagne and @thewhisperingangel
When: April 6, 2019
Where: Hyatt Regency Etoile
Book Signing! I’ll have several of my English titles, and hopefully ... 👠Stiletto in French! Swipe to see the new cover! I keep getting tagged on Instagram for this book, but I actually don’t know which book it is 🙈 Odd as it sounds, I don’t usually get notified when one of my books is released in another language. I typically find out when a reader outside the US tags me on social media!
💋I’m guessing this is After the Kiss? Anyone know?? My high school French is, um, rusty. Plus the titles are rarely a direct translation!—
PS: To preempt the questions, yes, Stiletto is in paperback in French (I’m pretty sure), and not in English. I’ve tried (begged) I promise! The US publisher says nay.
Spent the afternoon planning @goscribbler
boxes with my bookish BFF. 👯♀️ If you guys wrote a book about Lindsay and me, what would the title be? Make me laugh! 😂

A stolen glance across a darkened restaurant. A kiss under the Italian moon. A proposition I never would have made in my former life. Our story began just like all fairy tales do… Once upon a time.

I’ve added more books to the 📚RESEARCH PILE📚 I’m loving every minute of researching and writing this new series. Book 1 is almost halfway drafted. Thanks to #campnanowrimo
! These characters (people) have so much depth and intrigue. Every day I’m delightfully surprised by what they’ll do and say. Writing isn’t always like this, but when it is, it’s magic. 💫
Have you ever heard of a writing party?
This is totally my type of jam. Just sitting down with a group of like-minded people each working on their future book and inspiring each other.💻
I would also be into a reading party. Just sitting around the garden, maybe soft music playing in the background a few drinks to cheer with and an afternoon of reading away with your favorite friends.
Today is the birthday of Hunter S. Thompson (1937-2005), author, journalist, and the father of "gonzo journalism.
It’s hard being a JCole in a world full of Drakes. When they see you but can’t comprehend what you tryna say, cause the knowledge you give them, ain’t given every day.❤️✍🏾🌹
Was filming some stuff for my next vlog (yes, it’s actually coming soon!!) and realized I must have looked so strange to people shopping around me, so I had @realvictoriascott
take a candid to share with y’all. MY BACK HURTS from that baby bump. And I have 3 months to go. Apparently he’s about 1lb14oz and somehow he still has to grow to like...6lbs ish or more 😅❤️#authorlife #vlogging #barnesandnoble #authorbaby #BabyZ

NEW BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT!! I know we’re still reeling a bit from the recent release of Fawkes, but I’m so excited to share that my next book—another historical fantasy—will be a retelling of Anastasia!
Official title: ROMANOV
Releasing: MAY 7, 2019 from @harpercollinsus

The history books say I died.
They don’t know the half of it.
Anastasia “Nastya” Romanov was given a single mission: to smuggle an ancient spell into her suitcase on her way to exile in Siberia. It might be her family’s only salvation. But the leader of the Bolshevik army is after them . . . and he’s hunted Romanov before.
Nastya’s only chances of survival are to either release the spell, and deal with the consequences, or enlist help from Zash, the handsome soldier who doesn’t act like the average Bolshevik. Nastya’s never dabbled in magic before, but it doesn’t frighten her as much as her growing attraction for Zash. She likes him. She thinks he might even like her...
That is, until she’s on one side of a firing squad . . . and he’s on the other.
👑 👑 👑 👑 👑 👑 👑 👑
Romanov will be a standalone and you can learn more behind-the-scenes details via my YouTube announcement via the link in my bio. 😏😏
I’M GIDDY-EXCITED FOR YOU GUYS TO READ IT!! This story has been stewing in my mind for years. I grew up learning Russian and then eventually traveling there several times. It’s a country and a people that are very dear to my heart and it’s been an honor to dive more into their history and culture.
ROMANOV is up on Goodreads AND up for preorder on Amazon (already!!! 😱😱😱) Links are in my bio!

~Ho una ferita che mi brucia. Un taglio netto, nessuno può vederlo o sentirlo. Io lo vedo, lo tocco e faccio finta di gestirlo.
Ho una ferita che mi brucia. L'anima mia in fiamme.
Si dilaga e trova spazio nei punti lasciati dal vuoto.
Ho una ferita che mi brucia. Un bacino non basterà per curarla, che forse ripensadoci le cadute da piccoli non erano così dolorose.
Ho una ferita che mi brucia. Qui. A un'altezza che mi fa paura.
Ho una ferita che mi brucia. Ho paura a coccolarla, ogni gesto verso di lei è una pugnalata verso di me.
Tocchiamoci e abbracciamoci oggi, specchio riflesso.
Ho una ferita che mi brucia. Birretta? Ci penseremo domani. ~
Pochi conoscono le ferite che ci portiamo dentro non abbiate paura a parlarne, nel frattempo: "birretta?" Baci, M✒ •VagaMente• #bookworm

Time for a little SCUBA DIVING.
Have you ever noticed that stunning sunrises and glorious sunsets only happen when there are clouds in the sky? .
Can you imagine a sky with no clouds? Ever? Clouds give us so much more than grey skies and storms. I seem to be OBSESSED lately with beautiful photos of clouds, particularly ones that show beams of light shining through them. It's a visual that for some reason brings me hope, a promise of sorts from the very heavens themselves. This would be a great opportunity for my students to do some scuba diving---explore the vast potential for symbolic lessons and veiled meanings. Ooohhh, I love it. 🤔
On the other hand, maybe we just lie down in the grass and look up at the sky for a moment of meditation. There's value in that too, is there not? .
"When you're a kid, you lay in the grass and watch the clouds going over, and you literally don't have a thought in your mind. It's purely meditation, and we lose that." ---Dick Van Dyke
On this wonderfully whimsical Wednesday, take a moment to look up and notice the clouds. What message will the clouds bring to you today?

For some authors, you're living your dream, writing full-time, and living a life you love. For others, you're part of the workforce, hustling to become your own boss. And, for others of you, you enjoy having a successful career within a company and one of your own.
Regardless of where you fit in, stay focused on your goals, find balance, and keep pushing. Your success depends on it.
