Near the end of writing the book, this is what I was listening to on repeat. It has a creepy, hauntingly desperate quality about it. A lot more (very random) music on the journey to finishing this book. Stay tuned!
This song was all I listened to. On repeat. For weeks on end. It really helped me get into the mindset of a main character who felt like she was losing her mind ...
Stay tuned for more of Unremarkable's playlist!

I have 28 days left of my Kindle Scout campaign, and every nomination counts! It was such a rush to get onto the "Hot & Trending" list last night, but it requires a lot of sustained interest to stay there. Nominating a book is easy. Follow the link and then click the blue "Nominate me" button above the sample chapters.
And to all my wonderfully awesome cuzzies who took the time to nominate the book -- love you guys! You're the best.
Thank you so much to anyone who's voted!!! Let your friends know! Keep the momentum going! If it gets selected at the end of the 30-day period, anyone who nominated the book gets a free advance copy from Amazon!

If there's one truth to being a writer, for me, it's this: There will always be someone who's better. No doubt about that. For a long time that truth inhibited me. What could I offer?
I just happened to be watching the movie trailer for "Rebel in the Rye" (starring Nicholas Hoult) about the life of author J. D. Salinger. There's a line toward the end of the trailer, spoken by Kevin Spacey's Whit Burnett. He tells Hoult's Salinger: "Imagine the book you would want to read, and then go write it."
I'm never going to be in a league with the likes of Salinger, but I think that line is sound advice. Hey, it worked for Salinger, right? ;-) For the longest time, I couldn't imagine writing a novel. Then I wrote my first one, and I realize now that it was purely to write something I would want to read. I've tried writing things that I think other people would want to read, but there's no heart there.
Here's the trailer to the movie, if you're interested. Now check out my Amazon Kindle Scout campaign for my new book Unremarkable: https://kindlescout.amazon.com/p/1HARZNP1IFEIP
Here's Amazon Kindle Scout campaign page actually linked!
Let me know what you think of the first few chapters!
Go my Amazon Kindle Scout page for my new book "Unremarkable" and nominate the book now! If it gets enough nominations in the next 30 days, you get a free advance copy, courtesy of Amazon!
I'll be posting a link tonight around 9 p.m. (PDT).
And now back to writing!
Woo hoo! I just got an e-mail this morning from Amazon's Kindle Scout program, informing me that the Kindle Scout campaign for my new book Unremarkable will launch on September 7, 2017 12:00 AM EDT and end on October 7, 2017 12:00 AM EDT!
Link coming soon!
I just submitted my latest endeavor to Amazon's Kindle Scout program, so I should find out in the next couple of days if the book gets accepted for a campaign. ... If it does, I'll be posting a link. The more nominations I get on the book, the more likely it is that I'll get a contract -- if I do, anyone who nominated it will get a free copy of the ebook from Amazon!
Wish me luck! Stay tuned!
