In the Holler blurb!

Y’all, I am so excited! In the Holler, the first book in the Mt. Moriah series is almost ready to publish. I cannot believe how long it has been since I pushed publish on a book.

Some of us have already ended Nanowrimo, and some of us are about to do so with the close of November. No matter if you have succeeded with the 50,000 words or not, we all have gotten SOMETHING on our work accomplished and isn’t that the whole purpose? This post is for those who are now holding that precious first draft. Rock on, you writer, you! GIVE IT A WHIRL I made my own story a nemesis this month by writing something from the seat of my pants, no outline, no idea what it would be. And it is a
