Although it’s been a few weeks since I posted, I didn’t miss you ‘cuz I played in my mountains and found my heart again.
OkayIdidkindamissyou. But I really didn’t. —-> Mostly because I ate FAR too many cupcakes over the last week. No, I didn’t eat ALL of those. Close, maybe. Everytime I look at that heart on top of the bottom left one I think: you’re adorable.
On the flip side, I ran lotsa mountains this past week also. I promise this post has a point, but you won’t find it until the very end. Shout out to Karen and Parker, for massively improving my downhill trail running form. My knees and quads thank you.
Karen and I sped-hiked over 3,000 ft in 3 miles. It took 2 hours up (ending at 8,500 ish feet elevation) and 48 minutes down. That’s less than half of the time for those of you not math inclined.
This below is a hike that I could only go 4 miles into because of snow. Mount Timpanogos, I’ll be back to dominate you in August.
BOOOM BAM BABY!
My novella, a kind of prequel to Miss Mabel’s School for Girls, releases at the end of June! Don’t judge the blurb either. It’s in working stages. Oh, unless you can think of ways to improve it. Leave those in the comments.
Isadora is an aged witch living alone in the fog-strewn forest of Letum Wood. Her magical power is great, but her foresight is even greater.
As a Watcher, Isadora has the ability to see into the heart of every witch she meets, a talent that makes her the perfect guardian of the prestigious Miss Mabel’s School for Girls.
Any witch that wants to enter the school must first pass an interview with Isadora. No secret insecurity or sinister motivation can be hidden from a Watcher, as four teenage girls will soon find out.
Join Leda, Camille, Michelle, and Priscilla, as they each encounter Isadora in their quest to join Miss Mabel’s School for Girls. It’s a collection of short stories that fans of Miss Mabel’s School for Girls can’t afford to miss.
Shout out to Cory Clubb at Go Bold Designs for the stellah covah. So deeply in love again, as usual.
So here’s the big question to this post that really has no definable purpose but to brag that I got to run in the mountains last week:
Have any of you written and sold a novella, and/or read a novella from an author you like? I’m hoping it will help spur sales along whilst I’m whittling away at book two, Antebellum Awakening. <— Gives me shivers every time I read it.
Just tell me that a novella is a good thing, guys. That’s it. Reassure my blistered soul. I don’t cope well without the mountains, and now I’m gone from them again.
*hangs head in defeat*
