Via @introvertprobspodcast ・・・ New! Ask Author: 5 Questions with @crystallynn_ob, author of Pretty, Raised Ugly🔻 Link in bio. Interview by @m_yckx 🔻 Crystal Lynn O’Brien penned Pretty, Raised Ugly in the fall of 2015, a memoir sharing how beauty can grow even in “ugly” predicaments. “The book covers a large area quickly and aggressively,” said Crystal, who is a native of Northwest Indiana. “While the story is very raw and powerful in content, it is immensely empowering for many audiences.” With a lifelong passion for writing, Crystal earned her undergraduate degree in Financial Information Systems as well as an MBA in Human Resources. Now with a successful debut under her belt, read how Crystal is paying it forward by hosting events for local authors to network and develop their own platforms. 🔻 Link in bio and here: http://bit.ly/2s09RuP
#transformationtuesday This time next week, I will be at @djerassi_resident_artists working on @theblazingstar Book 2 under the guidance of @novaren. I wrote a bit more on this under my June goals a few posts back. I've never workshopped before, nor have I ever been at a residency for artists where your only job is to create. I'm really excited! So, my photo today is of @theblazingstar's first draft (yikes), next to paperback copies from earlier in the year. ✨
Book baby in the wild✨ @TheBlazingStar contains so many incredibly awesome components: time travel to Ancient Egypt and Egyptian mythology, a diverse cast of PoC characters, strong female protagonists, and a gorgeous, breath-taking book cover. Much of the story revolves around the twinning, or lack of twinning, going on between Portia and Alex, as they try to find out why they were pulled back in time into ancient Egypt, and how they can get home. It’s a fun, original mash-up of fantasy, Egyptian mythology, and magic. Imani Josey truly did an amazing job of making me, the reader, feel as if I was back in Ancient Egypt with the girls.
