King of the Dahlias!
I can never write anything happy, even if you begged me to😅😈
The path often can look scary when one has not taken it. Many of the greatest treasures of life are often found just beyond your fears. Take the path! #JustAThought #journey #blackandwhitephoto #onelife #throughthedarkness #successisgainedwithwork #faceyourfears #Myphoto #authorlife #introspective
So often, it’s easy to look in the mirror and see what we feel are flaws; as a woman, I’m even worse about this. I can feel great, catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror, and suddenly hate what is reflected back at me. . Today I choose to not focus on the number the scale shows me; no, I’m not a size 1 anymore. But when I look at this photo, of this woman, I see someone who’s strong. Someone who’s grabbing life and running with it, she is unafraid and unashamed of who she is. I want to be more like her everyday. So today, I’m gonna work toward that. . #photoshoot #alternative #alternativestyle #alternativegirl #photoshooting #author #authorlife #authorsofinstagram #corset #redlips #rocker #rockergirl #rockerchick #rockerlife #blueeyedgirl #piercedgirl #pierced #lippiercing #monroe #tattooed #tattooedgirl #urbandecay #pinkhair #whoisthatgirl #wannabemodel #iwishiwasthispretty #notamodel #loveyourself #selflove #positivebodyimage

✨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 What: #RAREPARIS 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.

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.
"This book has such amazing detail down to the music to go with each scene. These characters are really true to life, the story is truly plausible and that sucks you in even more!" - Amazon Review Have you met Noah and Evelyn yet? hyperurl.co/Indecision #chicklit #TBRList #romancenovel #romancereads #kentucky #california #huntingtonbeach #strongwomen #southernboy #southerncalifornia #authorlife #independentwoman #indecision #readme #readit #reading #writerscommunity #writersofinstagram #newrelease #kindleunimited #amazon

My favorite thing about rest day (Wednesday) is that I can write my book. The most intimidating thing about rest day is that I have little else to do but write my book. #nerdzilla #nerdherd #blogger #bloggersofinstagram #writersofinstagram #authorsofinstagram #author #authorlife #memoir #thestoriesmytattoostell #skininthegame #spoonie #muletown #muletownusa #columbiatn #muletowner

Day 18 #authorlife2018 : #WriterGoals Today, we’re supposed to talk about our bucket list for our writing career. My biggest would be making enough to support my family. I still have a long ways to go but I’m trying! The other is out of my control so more of a dream, but I would love to have one of my books made into a TV movie. . . #authorlife #readerlife #bookstagram #photochallenge #amreading #amwriting #writersofinstagram #sweetromance   #hallmarkchannel #netflix #hallmarkchristmasmovies #bucketlist #dreambig

Today’s writing fuel 👆. I’ve wanted to try these @greenandblacks milk chocolate pralines for ages. They were on special offer at Tesco’s so I treated myself. 🍫. They are really yum. Crunchy, creamy and nutty. Praline chocolate is one of my favourite flavours. What’s your favourite chocolate flavour? 🍫. #writer #writingfuel #chocolatelover #greeneandblacks #authordreams #writinglife #chocolateandwriting #authorlife #wipjuly #indieauthor
Writing Tip: Let go of your perfectionist tendencies ✍🏼 • We all have some kind of perfectionist, OCD tendency with our writing. The truth is: it’s probably holding us back. My perfectionist tendency has always been being OCD about editing. When I would sit down to write, I would read over my entire story. My. Entire. Story. Before I would write another word. I don’t want to think about how much time I stole from myself by doing this. There’s a time for writing and there’s a time for editing. Is it okay to go back once in a while to a specific scene to make a change? Sure! But reading over pages and pages and pages of work? No. Thankfully, I’ve stopped this bad habit. 🙅🏻‍♀️ • What perfectionist tendency do you have? Or have had? Share what they are below and what you’ve done or are doing to break the habit! 🗣️ • • • #writersofinstagram #writersofIG #amwriting #writerslife #writerscommunity #womenwriters #writingcommunityofIG #creativeentrepreneur #authorpreneur #knoxvillewriter #knoxvilleauthor #authorsofinstagram #author #authorcommunity #authorlife #writingtip #tipoftheday #authortip #editingtip

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

Clutch is the laugh-out-loud, chick lit romance chronicling the dating misadventures of Caroline Johnson, a single purse designer who compares her unsuccessful romantic relationships to styles of handbags – the “Hobo” starving artist, the “Diaper Bag” single dad, the “Briefcase” intense businessman, etc. With her best friend, bar owner Mike by her side, the overly-accommodating Caroline drinks a lot of Chardonnay, puts her heart on the line, endures her share of unworthy suitors and finds the courage to discover the “Clutch” or someone she wants to hold onto. ⠀ ⠀ #amreading #bookclub #bookaddict #bookaholic #bibliophile #bookish #booklover #booknerd #books #booklove #bookshelf #bookworm #ebooks #kindle #reader #reading #romance #romancebooks #romancenovel #romancereads #romanticreads #TBR #whattoread #authorsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #bookreview #romancestagram #bookstagram #authorlife #audiobook
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 Goodreads & Amzn links IN BIO. 👆 . 👑👑👑👑 BLURB 👑👑👑👑 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! . #romanov #titlereveal #authorlife #anastasia

~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 #booklover #bibliophile #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #authorlife

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? . #silverlining #silverlinings #cloudscapes #cloudlover #inspirationalthoughts #inspirationalpost #blueskiesahead #stunningsunrise #glorioussunset #authorlife #writerlife #teacherlife #languageartsteacher #symbolism #criticalthinking #writingprompts #yaauthor #yafiction #yaromance #writingabook

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. thewriteofway.net
