GIVEAWAY: TEN Starr Fall Books

Dear Alison,

2017 is here, and that other year (we won't even mention it's name) is gone. Big, giant, HUMONGOUS things are already starting to happen in 2017...In just two days Starr Lost, Book Two of the Starr Fall series releases to the world.


***On a side note, I knew Starr Lost released on January 5, 2017 I never realized it releases this Thursday until I started writing this post. I'm even more excited about it's release and will be chattering non-stop about Starr Fall and Starr Lost for quite sometime. To celebrate Starr Lost's release, I'm giving away TEN, yes TEN, free ebooks of Starr Fall. (I told you I planned to rock 2017.) All you need to enter is leave a comment--it could be as short as "Hi!" or tell us your New Years Resolution for 2017.



Here's some highlights of Starr Lost's first review by Meggan Turner on her blog Between the Pages.  Meggan's blog is FANTASTIC!! I encourage you to follow it!!

"After the stunning debut novel of the series was released earlier this year, it seems 2017 is the year for Kim Briggs rise to the top spot with this wonderful and exciting YA sequel...


...First off, sequels can be sometimes disappointing to read, especially when they carry on from a particularly high action novel prior, which Starr Fall definitely was. However this book definitely does not disappoint at all... 
Starr Lost also gives us a new POV within the book, and switches between Starr’s perspective and that of her and Christian’s friend, Di’s perspective. I loved this because it was so refreshing seeing all of the events from another viewpoint, and the differences between how Di and Starr view things and react to things was just perfect. It really added a depth to the book that we didn’t see in Starr Fall and it was brilliant...
...The book was so well paced, and constantly had me on the edge of my seat! I stayed up well into the early hours of the morning to finish it because I just couldn’t put it down. I was hooked! The ending was so well thought out that I am now BEGGING for the next book in the series! I can’t wait to carry on with the story.
I am honestly so in love with this series, the characters and the direction that the narrative seems to be taking. If you thought Starr Fall was good – you aren’t ready for this one!
If you want to read my review of Starr Fall you can find it here!
Starr Fall is available to download now on all ebook platforms. Starr Lost is now available to preorder on ebook, and will be released on January 5th 2017."
Oh my gosh, do you see why I'm all blushy? Read the rest of the review on Between the Pages.
So on to my crazy 2017 TEN Starr Fall ebook giveaway!! Just leave a comment below!! Love you all!!
Let's welcome 2017 with arms wide and hearts full!!

Write on,
Kim

The Querying Writer: Part II

Dear Kim,


Remember that letter I sent you way back in October? (You remember October-- back when all things seemed possible.) 





The letter, COMP TITLES and THE QUERYING WRITER, shared details from our Novel Nuts & Bolts class with Empire Literary Agent Carrie Howland. (I may have referred to her as "agent-extraordinaire" in another post.)

Though today's post will be my third about Carrie, it is titled "Part II" because my querying journey seems sequel worthy.







I started looking for an agent soon after you and I met at the NYC SCBWI conference in 2012. I had nice feedback from an agent at a conference and sent him my work. His response was kind (which I've found most responses from agents to be.) But my writing wasn’t ready. The novel he saw was the first I’d ever finished. I wasn't ready.

I swallowed that little voice that said, SEND! SEND! SEND! for two more years until I entered #PitchWars-- Brenda Drake’s crash course in pitching. In the years between t…

Cover Reveal: The Perfect Trip by Stacy Barnett Mozer

Dear Alison,

Thank you for my letter on Friday. I was teaching and didn't get to read it until late Friday night, but oh the memories of our time at the Writing Barn...so wonderful, so peaceful, so inspiring. The retreat was a much needed break from the insane fall I've had, and though we worked our butts off, it was a different kind of work, a good kind of work, my favorite kind of work, and sharing that work with you and Donna? Yeah, that was awesome. I, too, was really able to dig into my WIP and find Gigi's voice. She's so different from Starr and with so much prep work on Starr Lost (Book Two) and Starr Gone (Book Three), I had a hard time recapturing Gigi's voice, but Texas changed all that. Her 'in your face' style sets the tone for the entire young adult urban fantasy series, and I can't get her defiant nature out of my head. (People, you've been warned.)

Alison, you and I get to share the writing love every Monday and Thursday. Today, I ge…

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…
