Am I procrastinating by writing this blog post? Absolutely. Do I care? Not really...

September 2020 Wrap-up

I would say September was a good reading month. Had a lot of enjoyable books I read PLUS I actually got time to read (maybe that's actually what's most important here). Come see what I read, what I loved, what I didn't, and what I recommend (and don't) from this month's reading. 

P.S. I've hit the 77% mark on my Goodreads reading goal for this year! 77 books out of 100! Are you doing a challenge? Are we friends on Goodreads? Add me here: https://www.goodreads.com/eahcreative

Stealing Embers by Julie Hall | Re:View

Are you looking for your next read as fall rolls around? Look no further than Stealing Embers by Julie Hall! 

A realm of monsters. A world of lies. She belongs to both.

July and August Wrap-Up 2020

Welp, due to the overwhelming "project" of writing a book on my blog during the month of August, I totally forgot to post my July wrap-up. So, instead, I decided to do both July and August here in one post. Economical, don't you think?

Suspended in the Stars | Chapter 1

During the month of August I "blogging a book" here on the blog. You can read all about why I chose to do that in this post. The story spanned the month of August and was written daily to post within the month. I decided to leave up just the first chapter of Suspended in the Stars but please forgive any errors in spelling, grammar, and punctuation since this is not professionally edited. I asked readers to think of it like this: you're all reading my first-pass pages!

August Book Pinterest Fun

Who doesn't love a good Pinterest board? 

I've actually done Pinterest boards for almost every book I've written - and even some that haven't been written yet. I think the part of being a visual artist as well as a 'written' one is that I love seeing things. I'll be sharing some more about my blogging a book experience and the link to this books Pinterest board so you can see the world with me.

August Story Title Announcement

So I'm writing a book in August...

I thought now would be a fun to announce the (working) title of the novella I'll be writing right here on the blog as well as a bit about it. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, see this post.

Blogging A Book in August

For those of you that have followed me for any length of time (either here or on my Facebook and Instagram pages) you know that I AM A WRITER! I know, that's not shocking, but it is something that drives what I do almost ever day. I'm either writing for freelance clients, working on my own books, critiquing my friends books, or reading books. 

The thing you haven't really seen from me is my writing. That's not including my blog posts 😉 So, I'm jumping in on something with my friend Christen Krumm. I'm going to blog a book in August! Yep, right here!

Handling Rejection

This won't be completely new information to those of you who follow me on Instagram, but recently I received a rejection and, the more I think about it and talk with others, the more I feel the need to blog about it. So here it is.

At Home Teeth Whitening: Does it Work? | Review

Have you ever thought about teeth whitening? I had—for a long time. In fact, I’d considered buying those strips that people always talk about or something else you could find at any store, but I never did.

Rest | Personal Post

Hello and welcome to 2020!

I realize it's been the New Year for 4 weeks now...but some things require easing into and I think this new year was exactly that for me. But, as I've taken my adjustment time, I'm finally ready to come to the blog and talk about a bit of a new focus for me!
