I was picked for Author Mentor Match !!!
And I’m so happy and still freaking out and can’t believe it!! Author Mentor Match or AMM is a wonderful program of writers who volunteer their time to mentor unpublished writers by working one-on-one with them by offering advice, support and ideas to improve their work, and guide them through the perils of publishing.
Chelsea Sedoti, author of the awesome THE HUNDRED LIES OF LIZZIE LOVETT, picked my book and chose to work with me!! I love Hawthorn so much and am so thankful and happy for this opportunity to work with such a talented writer as Chelsea, who wants to help me make my book the best it can be.
She is so funny and kind in her emails and I hope I wasn’t too much of a big dork.

I loved this book. Here are some of my favorite quotes:
“Memories ain’t no one’s friend. They show you all the good things you had, all the good things you lost, and don’t let you forget any of the bad shit in between.”
“Live your life broken or take the moments of wholeness where you can.”
“Always thought I wanted the lonesome life. People is trouble. Folk have darkness in them what the wild don’t, and that scared me silly.”
I love the new trend on twitter #Threefictionalcharacters where someone chooses three characters from fiction or movies that best represent them. I picked four, is that ok? Please tell me your three or four in the comments!
I am: Lizzie from Pride and Prejudice, Badger from The Wind in the Willows, princess Giselle from Enchanted, and Tracy Flick from Election
This is Angel. He says black cats are awesome!
