Pinterest Board of the Month: Paris

I am in this weird lull of activity with Modern Persuasion. I think its because I am getting a better process for promotion and getting into a good groove. It has allowed me to put more attention to Phi Alpha Pi.  Part of the story, a small but important part, takes place in Paris inRead more

Getting to Know Phi Alpha Pi: Meet Wil

OMG I am so freaking excited to share the character profile for Wil. Mr. Darcy remains one of the most iconic heroes of literature. I have loved him for years. Today, I am going to share 5 things you won’t know about Wil if you only read Phi Alpha Pi. I admit, these aren’t goingRead more

Bookstores I Love: Brookline Booksmith

It was like a year and a half ago the last (and only) time I shared a bookstore I love.  It should be happening more often, honestly.  Going around to different places on my “tour” (which is more just me traveling and you seeing pictures) has allowed me the chance to visit libraries and bookstoresRead more

The Modern Persuasion Book Trailer

One of the things I love, as a reader, is a book trailer.  It sets the tone for the book and provides a preview of what is going to happen.  It was intimidating to think about and things were too crazy in April and May to consider one.  As I work on Phi Alpha Pi,Read more

How Is Summer Nearly Over?

Wow, it’s been a crazy summer and it’s nearly over.  If you have been chatting with me over the last few weeks, you have probably realized that I am exhausted.  I knew, once Modern Persuasion was published, that things were going to change.  I knew I had a busy summer ahead of me.  I knewRead more

Getting to Know Phi Alpha Pi: Meet Charlotte

While she isn’t one of the Bennet sisters, Charlotte is one of the Phi Alpha Pi sisters.  Her motivations in the original are directly tied to her time in history.  I always saw her as looking for freedom, but freedom to be able to play the role society had defined for her.  My Charlotte isRead more

DYK Wikipedia: Info Banners

One of the elements that has always impressed me about Wikipedia is its transparency about quality.  No other source announces its limitations right at the top of a page.  They might retract something when they notice its incorrect.  They might put the correction on the article, but they often hide it or put it atRead more
