June Wrap Up & GIVEAWAY!

The Books

28. A Dawn Most Wicked by Susan Dennard
29. My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier
30. The Minister’s Wooing by Harriet Beecher Stowe C
31. Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes by Cory O’Brien DN
32. A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett C
33. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon D
34. Meet Felicity by Valerie Tripp
35. Felicity Learns a Lesson by valerie Tripp

Yes, I read a lot of kids books this month. I was in the mood for it. It’s been years since I read A Little Princess or the American Girl books, and I’d forgotten how much they resonated with me.

I can also highly recommend When Dimple Met Rishi and A Dawn Most Wicked.

The Goals

  1. Send out 2 queries per week.
    Done. I’ve now sent out all the queries I can for the current book I’m shopping around, except for those agents who are closed to queries.
    Now if only some of them would email me back.
  2. Publish 3 books.
    2/3 complete! Have you gotten your copy of ALL FOR ONE yet?
  3. Read the books currently on the night stand.
    I’ve read 3 books, DNFed a third, and put a 4th in the giveaway pile unread because it no longer sounded interesting. I’ve also added a whole bunch more. Whoops.
  4. Read at least 1 indie book per month
    I did pre-order an indie book in June which just came out this week, but haven’t had time to read it yet. It will get reviewed in July, however.
  5. Read at least 30% diverse books.
    I was a little short on that this month. :/ Well, hopefully I’ll make up for it later.

My Books & Etsy Update

All For One smallALL FOR ONE is available now through Amazon  and my Etsy shop. Paperbacks and ebooks are available on both sites.

I have updated the shipping options for my books on Etsy, so there is now a media mail option if your ENTIRE order is paperbacks. It will save about 75% on shipping, though it’s a bit slower. You can still get standard shipping if you prefer, however.

Remember, all orders through my Etsy shop come signed, and include swag and a free ebook of THE SPIDER’S WEB, so it’s well worth the $2 media mail shipping. If you want free shipping, my books still qualify for Prime shipping on Amazon, but you won’t get the bonuses.


This is the part you were all waiting for, weren’t you?

I am having some difficulty getting the rafflecopter widget to work, but if you click the link below it will take you to the entry page.

I will announce the winners in my July wrap up, so there’s plenty of time to enter.

Like what you see? You can help me continue to write by buying me a coffee!

  1. If Sophie’s new book is as good as the Evie Capelli series we are in for a fun time. I loved the Evie Capelli books to date and hope there will be more.
