Starbucks Reviews Coming Soon

Everyone has an addiction and mine is coffee . . . well, lattes. And I am going to start posting reviews on Starbucks drinks, foods etc: since I visit them every single week and try almost everything new. Stay tuned.

Twitter's #DVpit

Amazing agent Beth Phelan from The Bent Agency created a new event on Twitter about a year or two ago named: #DVpit. Its main focus is to aim for diverse authors with their own voices to pitch  diverse books. The publishing industry is in a desperate need for change and I am all for it. Agents are all for it, and even successful authors have shown their support.

Great News!

Yesterday was perfect. No seriously, I know nothing is perfect, but yesterday was indeed perfect. I was on my way to Twitter to participate in the #PitMad event and right before heading there, I decided to check my email and boy was I surprised. Like super surprised. Read on!

Starting a New Novel

So, I am starting a new novel. This will actually be novel number three, and I couldn't be more excited. Most of my stories come from visions, in dreams, at the park, etc. They just hit me, like the first time you had a crush on a boy or a girl, or like the time you tried the best pizza ever, or the love you get when you found an amazing TV show, movie, and all that sweet jazz.

Hold's Head Down in Shame

Remember that confession about querying from the other day? Well, two things, an agent sparked interest right afterwards, but she wasn't passionate enough to take it on. And two, the submission guidelines: yes, I messed up on them. A lot of them and boy am I shamed.

The Querying Process

Sighs. Well, I am in the middle of querying and it sucks. So far I've written two novels. One about witches, my baby, and the other about a girl who lost her parents and has to go live in a world of magic with her estranged aunt. And yet--none of these have been picked up. I'd be lying if I say I didn't have a dream agent, I do, and she's denied to work with me twice. I didn't even get a no, she just never responded. Bummer.

We Are Moving!

Sorry I haven't been here in a while. Life happened, people happened, and my move is happening. We are moving. We've been living here at our current apartment for over ten years and its time. Time to move on, time to take control of our lives and time for something new. It's going to be more expensive, that I have to admit. But where we live at now is entirely dangerous. It's gotten worse over the years and I tried giving this place an additional year and regretted that decision ever since. Out neighborhood is some shit.
