So, yeah, it's been almost a year since I've blogged here. It's definitely time to breathe some life back into OF WRITERLY THINGS, I think.

What better reason than to announce the release of my young adult novel, IDEAL HIGH. It's been such a long time coming that I think it's worth looking back a bit to some of my old posts where I talk about my writing journey. Then I'll need to catch you up to speed because over this last year that I haven't been blogging, much has happened to advance my book to THE END. I'll do some of that looking back and catching up later in the week, for now: the BIG COVER REVEAL!!!!!!! (Of course, if you look a little to the right, it's there classing-up the sidebar!)

          Niles Giberson designed the cover and it is A-W-E-S-O-M-E-N-E-S-S!

My back cover blurb:

There’s no way I’m taking Blake’s place as president of the student body. As soon as the memorial for him and six of our friends is over, I’m resigning as VP. Really.

Except people say the fire was no accident.
(I say it’s way too easy to blame someone who’s dead.)

When I read the writing on the wall, literally, the bathroom wall, I know what it means. To get to the truth I have to come out from under my paisley comforter.

But, seriously, what stage of grief says I have to be the one to fix what’s wrong at Ideal High? Maybe I’m the one who’s broken.

I wanted to read it before I read the back cover. Now I definitely will. :)

Thanks, Emily! Check back to my blog because I'll be announcing the official release date when I get the details.
