Letter to the Universe #1

Motivation & Inspiration

Dear Universe,

Thank you for allergy medication.
Thank you for cozy quilts.
Thank you for a job that is meaningful and allows me to have relationships with awesome human beings.
Thank you for audiobooks so I can still read without falling asleep.
Thank you for giving me a dog that frequently slaps my phone out of my hand, reminding me to be present because that’s where all the good stuff happens.

Dear Readers

Self Publishing

I did an interview over at The Writer Diaries which you can check out here.  It’s a really awesome blog run by 12 writers all in various stages of their careers, offering advice and personal testimonies on their journeys toward publication. It’s definitely worth following so I hope you’ll stop over and check it out!

I was interviewed by Lauren April, author of Into The Deep and someone who has become a great support ever since I met her on Goodreads and we decided to swap manuscripts for a critique. She’s just one of the many people who has gone out of their way to help me, not only on my own journey toward publication, but also getting the word out about my book. Her final question for me was if I had anything I wanted to say to readers out there who might have picked up my book and I decided to share my response here and on my bio page since an official thank you to all of the people who have taken a chance on The Things They Didn’t Bury is long overdue.
