It always feels so good to hear from readers that they love my books and want more!

It always feels so good to hear from readers that they love my books and want more! (beaming) Thank you Cristina; I so appreciate it!

From Cristina Elizondo: “Cheryl Rainfield. A wonderful friend and a great writer. I have these two books and they are awesome. It’s hard to get the book called SCARS but I moved mountains and the sea and whatever else I had to move to get the book and I got it !!!!! I’m so happy. From a scale 1 to 10, I recommend her books 125 !!! Keep writing girl and once you do, I’ll but that book too. You’re awesome !!!!!” #cherylrainfield #scars #STAINED #selfharm #sexualabuse #trauma #healing #YAlitmentalhealth #YAsaves #YAwriter #LGBTQwriter #booknerd #bookworm #ireadYA #survivor #feminist #YAlit #YAbooks #bookstagram #bookrecs #bookrecommendations Continue reading

It is such a delight when readers let me – and others – know that they love my books! (beaming)

It is such a delight when readers let me – and others – know that they love my books! (beaming) This from reader and poet @jacob.lasher – I remember being so excited for this book to come out! Cheryl Rainfield has influenced me in ways beyond my own imagining. I am grateful people like her exist and I truly hope that my books can have the same impact on others like hers have done to me! @cherylrainfield

I just received my first ever Uppercase box

I just received my first ever Uppercase box (a YA monthly subscription box) that my friend and reader Lynn Postlewait so generously gave me (3 months!) as a gift for Christmas and I’m so excited to dive in! This case includes a signed hardcover copy of THE GILDED WOLVES by Roshani Chokshi who is a NY Times bestselling author, a Gilded Wolves character card, a Harry Potter Quidditch notebook, and a little packet of tea from Wick & Fable. Such delightful but goodies! I love books and bookish stuff.

The hardcover book came packed in a little fabric bag which I so appreciated because I like to keep my books in good shape.

I needed another great ya fantasy to dive into so I’m excited to read this. Yay for YA books and good friends!

I am going to wear these awesome rainbow PJ bottoms as leggings

I am going to wear these awesome rainbow PJ bottoms as leggings because: rainbows! To me they represent both being out and proud as a lesbian, and magical hopeful rainbows. My neighbor and friend Debbie picked them up for me at Winner’s!

Writers! You’ll want to check out this writer’s thesaurus

Writers! You’ll want to check out this writer’s thesaurus

I love Angela and Becca’s thesauruses for writers; I think they can help writers get unstuck, so I am thrilled I can finally announce that The Emotion Thesaurus Second Editionis coming! It releases February 19th and this new, expanded edition has 55 new entries!
If you’re a writer like me you probably know (and may use) the original Emotion Thesaurus.  I do. It’s a great refresher on emotion, and a great jumping off point into writing emotion deeper.

Check out my post at http://www.cherylrainfield.com/blog for more details (especially about the pre- order bonus and free surprise!). #emotionthesaurus

Petal and I were going to go on the Women’s March today

Petal and I were going to go on the Women’s March today but I think it’s just too cold, especially for standing around listening to speeches and then marching. They’re calling for a snowstorm and -19 weather, and when I took Petal out I felt the cold through my jeans even though I’m wearing long underwear underneath (and so is Petal) . Also Petal has a urinary tract infection which were treating but we’ve both beem up a lot of the night, second night in a row.

I am sorry to miss it but I am there in spirit. My sign was going to say: “As a lesbian feminist survivor of incest, rape, and torture I march for an end to violence against women and children, especially, and equality (and compassion) for all.

If you are a teen boy, work with boys, or have a son, I hope you’ll read this important, powerful, and eye-opening article

If you are a teen boy, work with boys, or have a son, I hope you’ll read this important, powerful, and eye-opening article by @halseanderson about boys and consent, and then have some open, honest discussions. If we want a world with less sexual violence, we need to have these conversations and help boys understand how important consent is.

I appreciate this curated list

I appreciate this curated list author @gdcribbs created of YA books that deal with sexual abuse, sexual assault, trafficking, and more. It’s so important to have these books and these discussions, to #BelieveSurvivors and hear them, to help each other heal. And I am so glad to have my books included in this powerful list. #MeToo
