Publishing Luna's Rescue!

     I have always wanted to write a book. But it seemed so impossible! In the past months, the stars aligned, and somehow I felt I could do it. I'm so grateful for all those who have supported me throughout the process of writing Luna's Rescue. I am also grateful for many authors whose examples have inspired me (including Jillian Boehme and Erin Entrada Kelly.) Reading about other authors' experiences, and reading their incredible books, helped me take the leap into writing my first book. 

    I'm so excited to be publishing Luna's Rescue very soon! This story was inspired by several things, including our family's crested gecko, Luna. I was also inspired by several other books, including The One and Only IvanThe Enchanted Forest Chronicles, and Hello, Universe.

    Luna's Rescue is the first book in The Cottonwood Chronicles series. The series is written for readers ages 7 to 12 and for the whole family to enjoy. At least two more books are coming and potentially more. 

    Luna's Rescue will be available for purchase on Amazon in both printed and Kindle formats. I am a huge fan of paperback books, but I also really enjoyed formatting the Kindle version of this book. Both the printed version and the Kindle version will provide unique reading experiences. I hope you enjoy!

Anelthalien by HA Pruitt: Book Tour

Anelthalien Book Tour  Today I'm excited to feature a YA Christian fantasy book by fellow author, HA Pruitt.  Anelthalien is in Utah! Can you see the Utah mountains in the background? If you look closely at the photo below, you’ll see a playground on either side of Anelthalien. You might also notice that my copy of Anelthalien is a bit worn! There’s even tape on a few of the corners. Why? Because this book traveled with me all over the place! It was always in my purse. When the kids fell asleep in the car, I’d pull it out and start to read. I’d read it at the playground. I’d read it wherever I happened to be when one of those precious moments of free time popped up.  Before reading it, I always heard “Have you ever wanted something different? Anelthalien is waiting.” When I read it, I realized how perfect that description is of this book. It is different. It transports you to a place you never could have imagined. And somehow through this foreign land and these 4 average-seeming te

First Year In Review

 It's been a wonderful first year of authoring. I've felt such an outpouring of love and support. Thank you so much to my readers!  It's hard for me to believe, but over the past year, I've officially published 7 books! Three are children's picture books, and four are chapter books or novellas. Three are for children under the age of 5, three are for middle-grade readers (ages 7 to 12), and one is a young adult novella. This post features each book in chronological order of when they were published. So far, my chapter books and novella have only received five star reviews. It's so surreal, and I'm so grateful to be on this journey!  After becoming a mother and choosing to stay home, I searched for an outlet of some kind to help me have balance in life. I'm so grateful to feel like I've finally found my groove! Being a stay-home mother while also writing, designing, formatting, and publishing books has given me the balance I was craving.  Here is some
