GRAVITY update

For anyone that has not heard, GRAVITY’s release date has been pushed back to October 30th. To celebrate, I’ve created a list of 5 reasons why the 30th rocks the socks off the 16th.

Five reasons why October 30th is WAY better than October 16th:
  • #5: October 16th is National Boss Day, therefore it can never also be National GRAVITY day.
  • #4: October 30th feels more like fall than October 16th, which in my mind means it is luckier.
  • #3: There are no other Entangled Teen books releasing on October 30th. Yes, I'm bratty and want the day all to myself. Just kidding...sort of. :D
  • #2: My launch party now falls on November 2nd. A weird fact about me—I tend to prefer “2” over all the other numbers. It’s just cooler.  
  • And the #1 reason that October 30th is better than October 16th ? It’s the day before HALLOWEEN!!! Yay! I’m pretty sure this means everyone will be drunk off candy corn and generally happy. Happy people are more likely to buy books. That’s just common sense.
So, I know none of this makes the wait any better. I know it’s frustrating that my release has been moved a few times now. Trust me, I feel you on this. But I also know that two weeks is practically nothing. A teeny, tiny dot. I hate that you have to wait through that dot, but I promise to make the wait fun. :)

Hi! How are you? Excited? Nervous? Hating your MS? Loving your MS? Yep, I get it. Been there, have the wrinkles to prove it. But that's what retinoids are for, and besides--

Wait, let me back up and do this introduction thing properly. And, you know, by "properly" I mean Hart of Dixie style.


So, you're probably wondering who I am and why I think I'm a rockstar, when I'm just a brand new little newbie mentor. Well, here's the thing--I'm not really one of those "I think I'm a rockstar" kind of people, so we won't be going there. Sorry. BUT I can tell you who I am. Here goes.

Make your readers uncomfortable

I have this one scene in TWISTED ROOT that is…intense. It is so intense that I’ve had reactions all over the place from my CP’s and betas.

Let me start by saying I have a ton of people read my work. An 8 person crit group, 2 crit partners, and 2 that I would say are alpha readers—friends who read tons and have strong editing backgrounds.

So I receive crits all over the place, and this scene has created some interesting responses. One critter went crazy for it, loved it. Another referred to it as slightly icky. I loved that response. :) Another blushed when we discussed it in person. And all of the male critters I have thought it was awesome—go figure. Men have a much higher threshold for uncomfortable-ness, than most women. (JMHO!!!)

Now I’m not saying I don’t adore all my readers. I do. I couldn’t write without them. Each one makes my work stronger. But here’s the thing, I’m keeping the scene, as it is (for now). Wanna know why?

I think as a writer you should make your reader uncomfortab…
