Japan, Bender, Moving Forward

Post Image

I recently got back from a 10-day solo journey around Japan, and it was an utterly fantastic experience. I had never traveled alone internationally before, so it was definitely quite the adventure. Japan was just as beautiful as I imagined, and I feel blessed that I got to visit, and see so much in so little time. It was the [...]

Looking Ahead

I haven’t written a real post in almost six months now, so this felt extremely overdue. I have lots of exciting news to share, the first being that I am working in publishing again and I’m super excited about it. At the beginning of this month I started as a Production Editor at Becker & Mayer. I am working on [...]

New Perspectives

Well, it’s been a while since I last posted an entry, but I suppose that just allows me to chat more about what has happened in the months in between I last wrote. I HAVE A JOB! But in all seriousness, I said at the end of my last entry that I hoped to have a job by my next [...]

Priam vs. Marilyn

It’s a new year, and many exciting things are happening. I suppose I should start with the book related things first, as that is what this website is about anyways. I finished editing What Happened to Marilyn in mid December, and when I was done, I passed along six copies to my trusted six editors, members of my family and [...]

Editing & Querying

I’ve finished editing my manuscript a second time. Eight people now have a copy of it. All I can really do at this point is wait until they finish and I get feedback from them. I’m so close to releasing it and putting it in book form. In the meantime, I think I am going to query some agents, just [...]
