Happy Pride Month fellow #LGBTQIA people!

Happy Pride Month fellow #LGBTQIA people! 🌈
Some of you may not know that I have six books published – STAINED; SCARS; HUNTED; PARALLEL VISIONS; DRAGON SPEAKER: THE LAST DRAGON; and SKINWALKERS: WALKING BOTH SIDES. They’re all #YAlit. The first two are YA suspense and all the others are fantasy, including the last two which are hi-lo (high interest, low vocabulary). The ones that have my strongest voice, #LGBTQIA characters, and that deal with trauma and healing are the first four, though I feel like they all have small pieces of my soul.

My friend and neighbour Denyse took some creative photos of me and my books today. I have so many that I think I’ll post some over the next few days. It was fun, and I really liked how they turned out!

I LOVE this gorgeous photo that fellow #YAlit author @mcfarlanebooks took of STAINED

I LOVE this gorgeous photo that fellow #YAlit author @mcfarlanebooks took of STAINED, and that she’s enjoying it so far. It’s always such a compliment when other writers like your work. Melanie has such a great artistic eye – AND she also writes dark fiction with hope. Check out her books if you haven’t already.
Via @mcfarlanebooks – What are you reading right now? My current #tbr is Stained by @cherylrainfield and it’s amazing 🤘 .

When I really love a book

When I really love a book and it is a hard copy I put a sticky note next to passages that move me, speak to me, or I love how they’re written. It’s reading mostly as a reader and some as a writer. It helps me notice it more. If it’s a great book, the pages end up looking like multi-colored hair like my copy of CROWN OF FEATHERS by Nicki Pau Preto. (grinning) Can you tell I loved it?

Sometimes I’ll remove the sticky notes later, and sometimes I leave them and see if the same passages resonate next time around.

I guess this is a readerly and writerly quirk of mine. Anyone else do this?

Side note: if you want to be a writer you need to read!

I am delighted that STAINED is featured in a Wiki video: 12 Compelling Young Adult Thrillers. (beaming) It is timely since Sarah in STAINED is raped by her captor and must find a way to save herself, just as I did – and this is #SAAM Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Survivors are strong.
You can see the video with 12 YA thrillers at https://wiki.ezvid.com/m/12-compelling-young-adult-thrillers-n3abSt2GDGfZL

I’m reading CROWN OF FEATHERS by Nicki Pau Preto which I am still LOVING so much,

I’m reading CROWN OF FEATHERS by Nicki Pau Preto which I am still LOVING so much, with my little Petal who is such a snugglebug. Strong, smart girl characters, magic and animal telepathy, a queer romance, cultural diversity – and beautifully, engangingly written.
Peta has pancreatitis again – it seems to becoming chronic – so any positive energy for her is welcomed. (She is on a low protein, low fat diet, and digestive enzymes, a fermented probiotic, and two new supplements I just found for her, and NHV Mellit and Turmeric.) #crownoffeathers #nickipaupreto #bookrecommendations #bookrecs #bookstagram

I am super excited for the Feb Uppercase box

I am super excited for the Feb Uppercase box that I got from generous reader and friend Lynn Postlewait. I just started CROWN OF FEATHERS by Nicki Pau Preto and already I’m loving it; just the first few pages tell me that it is beautifully written. And I am extra excited about it because it has a queer romance and racial diversity!
I love YA fantasy, especially with strong girls, and strong queer girls? Even more! Kudos to Uppercase for picking such a great book.

I also loved the quote magnet for CROWN OF FEATHERS, the positive-message postcard by Victor Hugo, and the Raised by Books pencil case from Out of Print. This is my favorite box yet! Everything here is absolutely perfect for me, like it was hand-picked! (beaming)
