Hi, friends! I'm so ecstatic about some recent developments in my life that I'm foregoing the general fluffy introduction and jumping right into the reasons why my face is plastered with a full on, ear to ear grin.
Reason # 1
Summer vacation just began!!!! Need I say more? No, probably not, but I'm so excited about it that I just can't contain myself. AAAHHH!!! It's summer break, people, and you all know what that means. It means sleeping in, lazy days, reading for pleasure, writing, boat rides, water balloon fights, and the joy of watching kids run through sprinklers. Man, I love summer!
Reason # 2
I just launched my official author website. Please, please, pretty please with a cherry on top show me some love and check it out. I'm very proud of it, and would love to have your feedback. (I'm especially interested in hearing from you if you read Saving Elizabeth on Inkpop.) Do you think it conveys the overall feeling/tone of the novel?
Reason # 3
I think I've saved the best for last! I, author Amy Machelle, have just signed a publishing contract for Saving Elizabeth. Eeeeek! Are you as excited as I am? I am beside myself! As soon as my editor receives the contract and everything is finalized, I'll post more details. Keep checking this blog and my new website for updates.
So, understand why I slightly resemble the Cheshire Cat? Good things are happening in my life, and I'm so thankful! It's been a long time coming, but now that they're here I say, "Let the good times roll!"
Oh, by the way. How do you like the new blog design? I changed it up a bit, okay a lot actually, to match my author website. I wanted there to be somewhat of a flow. What do you think?
