      Got to meet one of my writing idols last night! @halseanderson’s SPEAK should be required reading in all schools, especially in light of the #metoo movement. Can’t wait to read SHOUT. And she was nice enough to give me advice on how to engage students in urban schools. Great night!

      Hey guys! Did you know that I will be doing a reading and signing this Saturday, March 23, at 2:30 PM at the Ridley Township Library! Who says you can’t go home again? It is so meaningful to do this signing for the final book in the series, in the town where I grew up, at the library that started it all! Come out and see me!

      Sometimes I get so caught up in the “work” of it all that I forget to step back and look at the accomplishment. Shout out to my husband for reminding me that today I publish my 6th novel. Wherever I go from here, I will always have that.

      Here’s a toast to Anastasia Phoenix and END OF THE LIE! 🥂 📚

      Walking back from the bus stop, after sending my kid off with a two hour delay. Something about a snowy day in the woods makes me feel like a real writer. Hopefully it doesn’t turn out like #misery.

      A few years ago I shifted from a “pantser” to a “plotter.” While it takes a bit of the spontaneity out of it, I found that I can complete a manuscript much faster with a thorough outline.

      The outline for my current work in progress is seven pages singlespaced. Believe it or not, that is significantly shorter than outlines for previous books. Upside? Yesterday I wrote 3,000 words before lunch, because I knew exactly where the story was going. #shelfie

      QOTD: Are you a plotter or pantser?

      1,138 pages read! As a reader, I was blown away by how vivid his descriptions are, and I am inspired by how he made the town of Derry into a character. The one drawback for me was the unexpected Law & Order SVU scene at the end. Still thinking about that…
      .
      As an author, my favorite part was the last page that reads: “This book was begun in Bangor, Maine on September 9, 1981, and completed in Bangor, Maine, on December 28, 1985.”
      .
      Every #aspiringauthor take note— there is no overnight success. Great work takes time.

      A book well read! About halfway into #stephenkingsit.
      .
      Daughter asks: Why do you put all those stickies in your books?
      Me: Because when you become an author, you don’t just READ anymore. You learn.

      Copyedits for one book done yesterday, so plotting for the next book begins today! I’m thinking of writing a YA #thriller with a ghost POV. So I’m rereading #thelovelybones by Alice Sebold and #rememberme by Christopher Pike for background inspiration. Got any recommendations of great books with a ghost POV?

      (Please excuse Princess Mittens who now photobombs everything. It’s hard enough to get to stop diving at my ponytail while I type! 😂 🐱)

      Live action shot of the 2 screens and 3 reams of paper it takes to upload copyedits into an MS Word chart for my publisher.

      It’s hard not to dread this part of the process (think: page 22, line 16, add the word “the” before “cat”). But every time I start to complain, my husband quotes The Godfather 2: “This is the business you’ve chosen!”
      😂
      Honestly, despite how tedious it is, I am grateful every time I reach this step of the process, because it means I am still a working #author.

      That special time in the copy edit process when I need to compile a master draft of all the typos my copywriters have found and then transfer those changes into an MS Word chart. This is when you officially know your holiday vacation is over. But it also means that END OF THE LIE will be out in two months!! #anastasiaphoenix #amediting #edits
