A Little (HUGE) Exciting Awesome Announcement!


Hey, sweet readers!

I'm jumping, dancing, and squealing with excitement about this, so I'll cut to the chase -

I've been chosen as one of the new Muses over at Pen and Muse!

I was seriously biting my nails over this one, since Kristen and Jolene received so many applicants for their new Path to Self-Publishing monthly posting crew, but really, the two-round "interview" process was an absolute pleasure and so much fun. I loved getting to know them and setting up my intro post, which will go live tomorrow.

For those of you who don't know, Pen and Muse is dedicated to EVERYTHING a writer needs to know about publishing - from the craft of writing (see some excellent guest posts on outlining from one of my writing besties, Andrea Hannah) to amazing branding and marketing tips, and everything in between! It's a bookish haven for those of us writers who are looking for one blog that can guide us in any direction we'd like to go.

About a month ago, Kristen and Jolene decided they wanted that to include advice on self- and indie-publishing. And they picked me to help them out!

Excuse me while I try to contain my excitement.

Seriously, I'm so honored and humbled. I can't wait to start posting for them, along with my fellow new Muses J. Meyers, Faith McKay, Cara Elizabeth, and Rebekah Crane. I know we're going to make and awesome and enthusiastic addition to the team.

So please, if you haven't already, go follow Pen and Muse everywhere possible:

I'm gonna have so much fun with this.
See you there!
