New Paintings in the Shop!

There are seven new paintings in the shop, and several markdowns on others so I can make room for more in the coming months.

Here’s what’s new:

Head on over to Erin’s Artful Life to see more. It’s not too early to start thinking about holiday gift giving. (Well, it is, but I encourage you to do so all the same.)

Boys & Girls

I attended my 20th high school reunion on Saturday. It was a blast. It was great to see old friends and catch up, great to be in my hometown, great to be offered Manischewitz by a friend’s dad.

So it’s appropriate, I guess, that this week’s episode of Your Face Is Crooked happens to be about school (middle school, though, not high school). I saw a few of the boys I’d “gone with” (early 1990s dating parlance, which didn’t necessarily mean you had ever gone anywhere with each other beyond walking down the hall at school) back then. Blessedly, several others I didn’t see.

#Debut19Chat starts today!

After I sold my debut novel and got a 2019 pub date, I joined a group of other writers on Facebook whose debut novels are coming out in 2019. The writers in this group are all writers of adult or new adult fiction. They are men and women of various backgrounds writing in various genres — contemporary, historical, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal, romance, and more. We’ve been holding each other up, comparing notes, reassuring each other, and answering one another’s questions for months as we’ve gone through the process of getting edits, seeing galleys, seeing cover designs, etc. It’s been an awesome resource and a great source of encouragement to all of us.

Starting today, you get to meet them!

If you love to read and you want to be up on the up-and-comers, head over to Twitter and follow the #DebutAuthors19 and #Debut19Chat hashtags. Starting today and every day throughout the month of August, we’ll be introducing ourselves, talking about our books and our publishing journeys, and giving you an inside look at what’s coming to bookstores in 2019.

Hopefully, you’ll find several great new books to add to your Goodreads shelf and/or pre-order.

I’ve already added my post for day 1. Go see who else is tweeting!
