***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. 

Kim's BONUS BOOK GIVEAWAY... 


To enter, you need to know that my lucky book number is 10.

GOOD LUCK!!
Write on,
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…
