***MEET LYNN STEVENS, AUTHOR OF FULL COUNT***


Lynn Stevens flunked out of college writing her first novel. Yes, she still has it and no, you can't read it. Surprisingly, she graduated with honors at her third school. A former farm girl turned city slicker, Lynn lives in the Midwest where she drinks coffee she can't pronounce and sips tea when she's out of coffee. When she's out of both, just stay away. 

For more information, please visit her site at

Or, you can find her on Facebook 



***Deleted scene from FULL COUNT***
WARNING: The exclusive content is a little more racy than we normally share on the blog. 
Mallory laughed as I lay spent beside her some time later.
“Not a ringing endorsement,” I deadpanned.
That only made her laugh harder. When her stomach rumbled, she stopped and stared down at it as if it had spoken.
“Pizza?” I asked, putting my hand on her stomach. “They deliver.”
The laughter returned and I thanked God that I got to hear it again.
“Afraid to be seen with me in public?” she asked with a grin.
I leaned in and nuzzled that spot beneath her ear that caused her body to shiver. “You know better than that,” I answered between kissed. “That’s not the problem.”
She leaned back and stared at me for a minute. “Then what’s the problem?”
I stretched toward her, pressing my lips firmly on hers. “Going out requires clothing. I’d rather not see you dressed right now.”
“You’re so bad,” Mallory whispered against my lips.
“Only when it comes to you, love.”
Mallory pushed me off her and reached down, finding my t-shirt on the floor. She pulled it over her head. It gathered at her hips like a tent. Damned that was sexy.
“Chinese delivers too.” She stood and let the shirt fall to her knees. I swear she swayed her hips with the sexiest swagger I’d ever seen. Watching her bend to dig into her purse, my heart swelled with pride. This impossibly beautiful, majestically brilliant girl loved me. Me, a dumb jock. She was so much better than me.  I didn’t deserve her, but there was no way in hell I was ever letting her go.

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…

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…

BOOK REVIEW: Starr Fall & BOOK RELEASE: Once & Forever

Dear Alison,

Goodbye January, Hello February! Last week, I let everyone peak in my drawers.  Today, I'm opening my inbox. Well, not literally. You DO NOT want to see my inbox--though I do try to keep all the accounts very tidy--sometimes the emails get a bit, what's the word I'm looking for? Expansive. My favorite emails are from fans. I LOVE them. They make me all warm and fuzzy. Seriously, touch my arm...

See? Warm and Fuzzy. Oh, wait those are my doggies;)

While, I ADORE the fan mail (I DO, I REALLY DO) I would LOVE them even more if they were added as a review to AMAZON and GOODREADS. For instance, look at some of these reviews:
