Spotlight on Cindy Bennett

Hey, friends, this week I'm going to be giving a shout out to some amazeballs authors who have generously donated prizes for YOU to win at this weekend's Psyched birthday party!

 My first shout out is to the incredibly talented Cindy Bennett. I joined her critique group around 18 months ago, and I have to say, this girl gets it. She understands writing and how to craft a story better than most, so having her offer help and feedback as I write is kind of awesome. She helps writers with the nuts and bolts of editing and formatting for publication. In fact, she's the main reason we're having this party on Saturday--she reformatted Psyched. See how pretty she made my first paragraph?

Cindy is the author of several books, as well as owner of a business helping indie writers like me. Love her! She offers formatting services, editing services, and other fun digital projects which you can see in her Geek Girl Etsy shop. And if you want to read any of her amazing stories, feel free to check out her Amazon author page. I love her books, so by all means, check it out! Her latest release, The End of Feeling, is a total tear jerker and I highly recommend it.

You can win a copy of The End of Feeling this weekend at my Psyched birthday party. Hope to see you there!  This Saturday, 8-10 p.m. Mountain time. Whee!

Off the Record, Question 1

Fake News at Its Finest

Life has a way of putting me in my place. I had grand intentions to post weekly, and three months later....

So I think it's great that people are talking about fake news these days, because fake news is at the heart of Off the Record. I have a sleezeball paparazzo named Derrick Fuchs (it looks like a swear word, but it's pronounced 'fooks,' a purposeful play on words to immediately show what a douche nozzle he is) in the novel. He writes his articles based on the latest gossip without really caring who he hurts or how much of it is made up. I haven't decided yet if the reader gets to meet him, but the excerpt today is the first article we see from him. Enjoy!

Off the Record, Question 1 Part 2

If you haven't noticed, the format for Off the Record isn't in regular chapters. Main character Devi Madrigal is looking back in an interview for Rocker Chic mag, something I made up because every sleezeball papparazzo antagonist needs a place to work, right? So instead of chapters, you'll see questions and articles about her. It's a fun format to write in.😍

When we last hung out with The Streakers, they were trying to figure out how to make the finale of a live reality show after their lead singer Raina Sky ditched them that morning. They heard Devi singing after her shift at the coffee shop and want to sneak her in to sing for them. Will Devi tell them they're crazy? Can they sneak her in to a studio with tight security? Will this girl with a guitar and a dream steal the chance she's been trying for three years to reach?
