One Month in One Post (2)

Yet another month has passed: four down eight more to go until the end of the year. Goodbye April, hello May, the month where the ground is littered with red-brown leaves. (And other months, too, but still. Hardly saw any autumn foliage in April.) So what’s happened this month? Let’s wrap it all up in my monthly post where I talk about everything that’s happened.

First off, I want to talk about the awesomeness that was Nest Pitch. My novel made it through, The Sweetest Sorrows of Ava Hale — and garnered some requests. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT!? Sometime in the coming month, I’ll post on why you should be entering contests, and the importance of putting your fears aside when you throw your work out into the world.

Monday is the day of my book reviews. Here are the books I’ve reviewed this month:

At the end of last month, I said that I would ideally love to have finished rewriting City of Illusions. Sadly to say, I didn’t actually reach this goal; I’ve been bogged down with work. But this month, the month of May, I am determined to finish it. Wish me luck!

That’s everything that’s happened in the chocolatey month of April. What have you achieved? Let me know in the comments.
