Columbia is the most BEAUTIFUL campus. There’s something particularly amazing about learning in buildings that have been here for so long. How many precious minds have looked out this window and daydreamed while their professor tried to coax learning from their heads? How many of them felt as filmed with the stickiness of deep-sleep as I do?
My leafiest meeting ever at the @newleafliterary offices. 🥰🍃💕
What a place for an introductory keynote.
My hufflepuff heart may actually burst. ⚡️
First of many car rides in NYC wherein I bite my tongue so as not to “HI HOW ARE YOU?” the New Yorkers to death.
Self promo is HARD! That’s why bossy sweatshirts are so great. 🤣 Seriously, if you haven’t seen my AGENCYMATE @claribel_ortega’s @gifgrrlshop line, get your life right. #notsponsored #justobsessed . . . #writergear #writingcommujity #writerlife #writerclothes #writerprobs #authorsofig #authorlife #bookishclothes
In my summer element. 💕🌞🌴🍦👯♀️
It’s FINALLY announcement time!! 🎉 So, many of you know that about a year ago I started querying a project. I LOVE that project. A lot. And though I got a lot of good responses, it was never quite the right fit, and so, I decided to move forward. ➡️ About 3 weeks ago, I started querying my newest project (codename #TUCOBOAT), and, we’ll... it was a very different experience. 😳 Y’all, I about fell out of my chair over and over again as this little book of mine racked up FIVE offers of rep from some amazing agents. ✋🏻 I am unbelievably excited to announce that I have signed on with the brilliant @devyross of @newleafliterary! 🍃 This project is something special (if I do say so myself). It’s about choices and consequences and figuring out how to move forward when EVERYTHING in your life has turned into a dumpster fire. 🔥 I can’t wait for the exquisite torture of going on sub soon. Cross all your fingers that we find a home for this one, and as soon as we do, you can count on me to vague-post my face off until I can tell you all about it. 📖 I want to thank Devin, of course, but I also want to thank a few other people who got me to this happy moment. 💗 @daronmacke whose support is the single greatest joy of my life. @annieneugebauer who is my most faithful partner, and the reason I’ve kept writing. @megan_whitmer for being the evergreen cheerleader and saving me every time. @_tamekayoung_ who ALWAYS listens to the most neurotic moments. @jessrlove and @kimwritesbooks for your early feedback that made this project SHINY. 💫 I know it sounds cheesy, but I really do feel like my whole writing career is about to turn over a *new leaf.* 🍀
