AND THEN HE for $.99 & A Heartfelt Thank You

Dear Alison,

It's my birthday AND the book birthday for AND THEN HE, my new adult psychological thriller.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, AND THEN HE is only $.99 for the next few days AND THEN it jumps to $1.99 AND THEN returns to its regular $2.99 price (which is still a great deal in my book...)

Amazon Buy Link

AND do you know what would be an even better present for my birthday, a review of AND THEN HE. Reviews sell books, AND the more reviews a book receives on Amazon the more Amazon will help promote it. (They're fickle that way.) Goodreads is also a FABULOUS place to add your review. Since I'm groveling for reviews you can even go to Kobo and Barnes and Noble. Yes, any place you add your review is a place for more people to see it.

I made Goodreads really easy for you:


Alison, you left me for a few weeks. You didn't text, you didn't email, and you didn't tweet--I'm proud of you for going off the grid. Sometimes we need to recharge and the best way to achieve full power is to unplug. But I missed you and you missed some stuff. Most of the stuff is unimportant, but some is worth mentioning (or watching).

Here's a video I uploaded to my Kim Briggs Write Facebook page after the Unmask the Romance event. I get weepy and appreciative and all 'let's hug it out.'

So Alison, I missed you and I'm glad your back. Today, I plan to eat cake and drink chai and read books and snuggle with my kids. That's a perfect birthday in my book.

Sharing the writing love one letter (or video) at a time,

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,

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…
