Butterman (Time) Travel, Inc. Blogfest and Cover Reveal

Butterman600x900I am super excited to co-host the Butterman (Time) Travel, Inc. Blogfest and Cover Reveal with the author of this New Adult, Time Travel, Romance Adventure, PK Hrezo.

Join PK Hrezo, Tammy TheriaultMichael Di Gesu, & me and book your Time (Travel) Adventure today.

I was torn between traveling into the past or experiencing something new in the future. The unknown future would be more anxiety inducing, so I would like to go back in time and witness a historically significant event.  

I have been adding to my TBR list books written during the Harlem Renaissance. I would like to spend a weekend in Harlem between 1920 to 1930.  I would book a room on Striver’s Row and offer a shy curtsy to Mr. Langston Hughes as I strolled the streets of Harlem in search of other famous residents such as Marcus Garver and novelist Countee Cullen.  

I’d spend a lazy Saturday afternoon at The Lenox Lounge and flirt with Mr. John Coltrane by telling him how much I loved his music. I’d enjoy my coffee and attempted to read my Claude McKay novel, but it’s quite difficult when he’s sitting on a small stool hunched over a table in the corner. I can’t stop watching his shoulders as they tense and relax to a rhythm he must hear only in his head.  He scribbles into a small notebook and chain smokes while downing one expresso after another.  

I could watch forever, but I head back to my room for a short nap. Tonight’s going to be a long one. We start with dinner and dancing at The Cotton Club and if I don’t brake an ankle or pass out from dancing we’d end at the Savoy Ballroom drunk crying in our sherry while while feeling every last melancholy melodic note out of Billie Holiday mouth. 

When I make it back to my room, I collapse and experience the night all over again, in restless dreams. I’d wake and dress in haste as I grabbed the last of the fresh baked loafs from a street vendor while strutting down the street on my way to the Harlem Suitcase Theatre to catch Mr Hughes’s latest production.

Insecure Writer’s Support Group – Ups and Downs

InsecureWritersSupportGroupI can’t believe it’s already October. Where has this year gone? Before I get into my insecurities for this month, I wanted to give a shout out and congrats to our fearless IWSG leader, Alex Cavanaugh. If you haven’t read his Cassa series cumulating with CassaStorm, which was released last month, you are missing out.

Thanks to the #IWSG co-hosts this months, Julie Luek, Rachna Chabria, Beverly Fox, and Ilima Todd! Please be sure to thank them for their time and effort to make all IWSG members feel welcome.

#IWSG – The ups and downs are inevitable in this journey. It is like life I guess, some days the words are flowing, the goals are being met, your on top of things. Other times, you can’t help but be overwhelmed by the weight of it all.

September was a particularly unstable month for me. Here are some of the highlights:

I started the month on a four day solo writing retreat to The Hill Country near Lake Travis (North of Austin, Tx). – UP
The hotel I stayed at was a hole. – DOWN
I found an amazing spot to gets some work done and finished edits on my WIP. – UP


I sent my WIP out to some amazing people who agreed to beta read it for me. – UP
I started my own read through and found so many grammar issues, I recalled it from all the beta’s. – DOWN
I thought I had found a new critique group with two ladies who write in my genre. – UP and super excited to have some feedback from fans and writers of NA. 
After emailing them my WIP, they decided I wasn’t right for their group after all. – WAY DOWN and a little defeated. 
I submitted my query letter to Unicorn Bell Query Workshop and received the most amazing feedback and suggestions and from that I created a query letter that I am so proud of. – WAY UP and renewed my faith in this amazing writing community. 
I pitched my story during #PitMad and got two partials and a full request, one from my dream agent. – UP
I sent a query letter to another dream agent and got a partial request based on just the query letter. – WAY UP
I am still editing my WIP because every time I read through it I find something that needs to be improved. – UP & DOWN

How do you deal with the ups and downs of being a writer?
