Oh, my gosh. I’m sorry I didn’t see this sooner! I’ve been neglecting my tumblr.
I’ve been busy critiquing for a writer friend. I finished this past weekend. She critiqued for me as well, and I’ve been revising. After this round of revisions, no more! I will begin the querying process. I can’t wait!

Relevant to my last reblog of Malinda’s awesome book for cheapsies. Relevant also: Malinda and Cindy’s books are both awesome!
It’s not just a question of ‘the books aren’t there’ though more would be great!
The books that are there are not getting the support they deserve.
