Sweet & Swanky 17ers~ Introducing…Sara Biren and a playlist for The Last Thing You Said + Giveaway!

Playlist When I’m drafting or revising, I always listen to music. Sometimes it’s Pandora (my favorite stations – 90s grunge and alternative, film scores, and the swanky crooners of the 50s and 60s), sometimes playlists specific to the project I’m working on. I love finding new songs and artists that speak to the story and the characters and the atmosphere of the manuscript. Music inspires me and keeps me writing. […]

Sweet & Swanky 17ers~ Introducing…Rebecca Ross w/ an Author Interview + Giveaway!!!

Author Interview I love the name Brienna! How did you come up with her name? I wanted Brienna’s name to be 1) Unique 2) Easy to pronounce 3) Reflect her characteristics. At the root, her name is derived from the celtic “Brianna,” which means “strong, to ascend.” But I also wanted her name to be her own, so I dropped -anna for -enna. Little did I know at the time […]

Eventually I moved up the ranks, becoming an able-bodied sailor and then second mate on my father’s ship. When there wasn’t much higher for me to go, I became bored. I’d learned all there was to know […]

Sweet & Swanky 17ers~ Introducing…Jennifer Park and her Playlist for THE SHADOWS WE KNOW BY HEART + Giveaway!

Playlist This is by far one of my favorite playlists, and several of these songs are on other WIP song lists because they apply easily to other character relationships. I can find Leah and Reed in each of these songs, running through the forest, or just in the quiet moments when they were together, lost in their own world. “Everything” is my favorite. It’s one of those songs I can […]

Today I’ll be sharing some pictures that I’ve pinned for my debut COLD SUMMER (May 2017).   […]
