Happy Music Monday! And Happy #Witchtember Week 2! Today, I'm sharing a witchy playlist inspired by NASCENT WITCH, my upcoming novel about a witch balancing her new powers alongside a millennial hustle. I like to think that Sela, the witch in question, would appreciate this list. After all, you can't make magic happen without a … Continue reading Music Monday (Witchtember Edition): Songs for a Modern-Day Witch
During this magical month of September, I am counting down the weeks leading to the release of my debut novel, NASCENT WITCH! In order to celebrate this big moment, I'm launching Witchtember. What's that, you ask? Basically, Witchtember is a month-long party with a magical theme at its core: all things witch. So what can … Continue reading Happy Witchtember!
This post will be short and sweet because I'll have a lot more to say in the coming months! First of all, if you've been with me for a while, you'll notice that things have changed around here. I've updated this little corner of the internet where I used to house just this blog, and … Continue reading Big Things on the Way!
I read an interview last year that really stayed with me and has made me rethink where I stand as a creator. For a while, I thought I had a totally clear picture of the writing career I was going to build for myself, if I could. But lately, my perspective on this has changed. … Continue reading What Do I Actually Want? Thoughts on Writing, Publishing, and Creative Control
This post is going to be a little different. I usually review and grade the things I talk about, be they movies, television shows, podcasts, or books. I won’t be reviewing this book, per se, and won’t be grading it either. That is because I know the author and impartiality is not something I can […] … Continue reading Re-blog: “Sibyls” by Melissa Bobe (2020) — twocentspluschange
I am beyond thrilled to announce that my novella Sibyls is now available in paperback! I won't gush too much here, other than to say that this little novella taught me so much about the process from finished manuscript to completed book. I am grateful for this new knowledge, and for the support of my … Continue reading New Release Tuesday: Happy Book Birthday to Me!
Happy New Year! 2020 is just a lovely number to look at, and I'm hoping that the year (really the decade) turns out to be just as attractive, especially as it relates to all things writing. With that said... I have news. Exciting news. In just a few short weeks, I will be putting out … Continue reading Upcoming Publication: Sibyls
I'm writing this post after having a really amazing conversation that I'll post more about soon! But until then, I'm thinking a lot about the book that I'm finishing, which has undergone several drafts over the course of many years. That's unusual for me, and I think it's a process that deserves some thought. My … Continue reading Writing Wednesday: A Long-Term Revision
If we've met in person or even digitally, I know you've heard me say this at least ten times, but just in case you need a reminder: if you are looking to enter the writing world in any professional capacity, you need to get Yin Chang's podcast 88 Cups of Tea on your playlist ASAP! … Continue reading Podcast for Writers: 88 Cups of Tea
I'm writing from the woods in Pennsylvania, where my critique partners Sara and Eva and I travel for our annual summer writing retreat! Retreats are great for so many reasons. Getting away from your normal surroundings—and I don't mean a local coffee shop, I mean far away—can really help you refocus on your writing, because … Continue reading Away on Retreat!
