QUERY NEWS, BOOK DEALS, AND KILLER SHOES

Dear Alison,

Wow! Tuesday was an AMAZING day and the way you announced the big news to the world--BRILLIANT.  It's one of our most popular posts of all time and with good reason--Carrie and you are a match made in heaven...








And I am sooooooo happy for you. I haven't stopped happy dancing since the first phone call...




I can't wait for the world to read your stories, because you are a master storyteller, an absolute Master...


Alison and Carrie, I look forward to an amazing future filled with incredible books, delicious cheesesteaks, and killer shoes...

So it's Friday, and way back in 2016 we posted every Monday and Thursday, but life got away from us. Mainly for bookish reasons but don't worry. InkSisters will be participating in the April #AtoZChallenge again. In a few weeks, the A to Z Masters will reveal the badge and the contest theme. We already know our theme, don't we Alison? It'll take a considerable amount of character not to reveal the theme but our readers will just need to be patient...


If you're a blogger and interested in signing up for the #AtoZChallenge, here's the link: A to Z Challenge

We will also be participating in the New Adult Scavenger Hunt or #NEWash once again. If you would like to sign up to participate as an author, signups are open but they won't be for long. Click here: New Adult Scavenger Hunt

Beloved Readers, Alison and I won't leave you hanging for much longer. 


Oh one more little thing, actually one more GIANT thing, Valentine Kisses: A Kiss to Last a Lifetime Ebook is only $.99!!! The deal only lasts for the month of February so hurry and pick up your copy. 

Avalanche, Kim Briggs

Avalanche, my sweet romance with a side of steamy novella, is part of the collection. Here's the tagline and blurb: 


Lexi finds herself in the middle of a longtime feud, and her heart might not be the only thing at stake.

Lexi returns to her first love, Wolf Creek Ski Resort, with ambitions of becoming a ski instructor. She soon finds herself in the middle of a longtime feud between Gabe, a snow groomer who gives off the broken vibe Lexi finds irresistible, and Harrison the fourth, playboy son of Wolf Creek’s owner who always wants what Gabe has. Tensions boil at Wolf Creek, and Lexi’s heart might not be the only thing at stake.


So, treat yourself to Valentine Kisses: A Kiss to Last a Lifetime this weekend. Curl up by the fire this and read!!



Sharing the writing love one letter at a time,
Kim

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…
