writeoncon.

What’s WriteOnCon?

You don’t know?? Haha joking. It’s only the coolest online (FREE!) writers conference. To learn more you can read my posts from last year’s…

Blurb

Theo is better now.

She’s eating again, dating guys who are almost appropriate, and well on her way to becoming an elite ballet dancer. But when her oldest friend, Donovan, returns home after spending four long years with his kidnapper, Theo starts reliving memories about his abduction—and his abductor.

My Book Recommendations for You

by Brandy Colbert

I read a lot, but at the same time, I consider myself quite a slowreader. Sometimes it’s just life pulling me away—writing, copyediting, or social obligations—but sometimes it’s because I really like…

For those who are wondering this is the iStock photo model they used for Syd on the original covers of Proxy. Not to say anyone else’s imagining of Syd is wrong (this isn’t mine, although I LOVE it). I thought I’d just share it for those of you who are curious. Of course, some of the fancasts I’ve seen (hello, Kylin Rhambo??) are great too!

Khylin Rhambo? Perfect. Now that would be a great movie.

#WeNeedDiverseBooks summer reading series! If You Liked The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, try Summer of the Mariposas by Guadalupe Garcia McCall because both books are about the importance and magic of sisterhood and friendship.

We like to say that Summer of the Mariposas is like Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants meets Weekend at Bernie’s by way of The Odyssey. You’ll love it!

I absolutely love these summer recs & I hope they continue throughout the year. What a great way to get people, myself included, to read books with diverse characters & themes.

I can't stop laughing at that kissing scene oh my GOSH

My artistically gifted husband once took the time to craft a gorgeous, intricately designed, handmade card for an anniversary. In his very best lettering, he wrote out,

"Not a day goes by when I think of you and smile."

I say this because not a day goes by when he doesn’t make me laugh and fill my life with joy. (And we also laugh every time we reference that card, because as far as typos go, it was pretty awesomely epic.) (I still have the card. Not a day goes by when I think of it and don’t smile.)

Just to spew a little more mush over your dashboard, I married the best person I have ever known, and wish for everyone that you, too, find someone who makes you laugh every day.

Even if not a day goes by when they think of you and smile.
