Susan V. Vaughn Knockout Love Cover Reveal and Pre-Order Details

Dear Alison,
I decided to send you a Sunday bonus letter, but I'm not going to talk about #NY16SCBWI. I'll return to my #NY16SCBWI recap sessions in my next letter.
Today, I plan to gush about another fellow Inkspell-er, Susan V. Vaughn, and her book that's coming out Knockout Love. It's available for Pre-Order.  

The book cover alone makes me want to read this book.  

Here's the Blurb:
She just might be the woman of his dreams….
Maggie Heugan has her life all planned out, from her engagement to a handsome doctor, to her perfect nursing career. Then why does a chance meeting with a captivating stranger, have her questioning everything she has ever known? 
Pro wrestler, Sean Miller is on a fast track to his destiny, until an unexpected injury derails his course. Now he can’t refrain from chasing the enticingly beautiful Nurse Maggie, when she just might hold the key to healing him in more ways than one.
For these two conflicted lovers, life spirals out of control, when Love collides with destiny.

And now the Excerpt:
Maggie shielded her eyes, hiccupping loudly. “It’s so bright!” 
“The moon is too bright?” Sean laughed, pulling her into his chest to shield her eyes. 
Without thinking, she wrapped her arms around his waist and looked up at him with a tipsy smile. “It’s not too bright for you?” 
“No, I’m Superman.” 
“Superman?” Maggie giggled again drunkenly, ending in another hiccup. “Superman would have been able to drink his own drink and not require me to do it for him. It’s your fault I’m this drunk.” 
“Is that so?” Sean responded with another smile. “It had nothing to do with the fact you ordered another two drinks on top of that, and had nothing in your stomach.” 
She looked up at him again and smiled. “Oops.” 
“No kidding, oops.” He cupped her face in his hands and looked into her eyes. “Lucky for you, you’re a pretty cute drunk.” 
“Thank you,” she responded, the world spinning around her. For a moment she felt as though she was dreaming. The air felt thick and heavy. Sean’s hands were like magic on her face. His sexy lips inched closer to hers. Then suddenly he was kissing her softly, sending spirals of electricity racing down her spine. 
Maggie sighed, standing on her tiptoes, pressing her body closer. She felt his white bandage scratch at her nose. 
“Ouch!” Sean jumped back and readjusted the bandage on his face. “Easy, girl.” 
And just like that, the spell was broken. Suddenly Maggie realized she had just kissed a man she barely knew, with a broken face, and some parts more broken than others. 
“Sorry.” She pressed a hand to her swollen lips—still tingling from Sean’s touch. 
“Don’t be sorry.” He made up the distance between them—smiling—his eyes hooded, predatory. “Just take it slow, let my face adjust.”

School Visit Recap: Assemblies to Workshops, and the CONVERSATIONS in between

Dear Kim (and friends),

This morning I put away my rainbow superhero mask, gold top hat, and banana-on-a-stick. Few things are sadder than closing your banana-on-a-stick into a dark closet. But, I guess it will rise again next month for my next school visit.

Oh, you thought my collection was somehow Halloween related? No, no. Just part of the workshop portion of my school visits. For the past two weeks I had the privilege of speaking to, and then with, students from one of our nearby districts.



Dwight Smith, the founder of My Special Word, joined me for the assembly portion of the event. We were able to share with the children Dwight's vision for the program, as well as my process for writing the books for him.

There was music. Lots of it.
Some singing. (Would you expect any less?)
And shouting! (Mostly the kids, but I got a few words in too.)



We met with over 800 kids during the assemblies and got a sense for how the school district planned to use My Special Word. I'll say,
w…

INTERVIEW with Juliana Spink Mills, Author of The Blade Hunt Chronicles

Dear Alison and friends,
Today, I am excited. I mean REALLY excited, because well, I got to hangout with my writer buddy Juliana Spink Mills via the modern way: email/twitter/IG/FB. Juliana and I met at the NYSCBWI conference a few years back and have been friends every since. Juliana has been a much better friend to me than I've been to her this past year, but my resolution for 2018 is to rid myself of some of the extra responsibilities (stay tuned for details) and focus on what's really important supporting my community and that includes my writing community and the most important components of my writing community other than my readers are my writer friends.


So Juliana, when did you start writing?
Although I’ve always liked messing around with words, I didn’t start writing ‘for real’ until I turned 40 and told myself to stop procrastinating.
Sounds like 40 was the kick in the ass you needed. I just gave myself a strict deadline to finish my current WIP by January 1st. Deadline…
