GUEST POST: Three Things that Drive Me Crazy – Laura Templeton

As I was thinking about a topic for this post, the lyric above, from a Devendra Banhart song, caught my attention. No, I’m not going to be talking about boars, interesting as that might be.  Today I’d like to talk about thoughts. How they can be as wild and destructive as that runaway pig. Specifically, let’s look at three thoughts that drive me crazy. Maybe you can identify. My _______ looks like crap. Fill in the blank with your own insecurities. Hair (big one for me), shoes, outfit, FB page, car, room… the list is endless. My latest  failure in this department (a minor failure, though I assure you I have major ones) was nail polish. Hoping to replicate a pretty shade of pale blue I’d seen on a coworker’s nails, I bought a bottle I thought would work. Now You Sea Me turned...

INTERVIEW: Mindy McGinnis | NOT A DROP TO DRINK

One of my favorite releases this fall is NOT A DROP TO DRINK by Mindy McGinnis There's a kickbutt heroine, twists that keep you guessing, and a vision of a future that's probably a little close for comfort. Basically, you won't be able to put it down. I know I couldn't. So it was especially exciting for me to be able to interview her! Hope you guys enjoy!  1.   What’s your favorite scene in NOT A DROP TO DRINK? And why? Any thing with Stebbs in it! He was so easy to write, and when he showed up the scenes flowed naturally. He gets reactions from people and reacts appropriately. He’s a godsend. 2.   Your writing is so spare and tight. It fits Lynn’s voice perfectly. Do you see your style changing in future books? Or is this something that’s as much you as it is Lynn? It’s...

BatDad: The Dad You Need, Not The Dad You Want

Okay, I must really live under a rock, but this is the first time I've ever heard of or seen BatDad, but it's freakin awesome.  So I thought I'd share! Check out the video below: I could watch and enjoy 2 hours of this guy pretending to be Batman - embarrassing his wife and kids. Unfortunately, I cannot watch 2 hours of Ben Affleck pretending to be Batman. - Boy Genius

FIND ME: It’s finally here! | THANK YOU

FIND ME is out in stores today! Acknowledgement page: It’s weird to see FIND ME with only my name on it because, God knows, I didn’t get here on my own. I have no idea where to begin so I’ll just dive in. As always, I would be nowhere without my incredible parents who didn’t even flinch when I told them I wanted to be a writer…and wasn’t going to law school…and “oh-by-the-way it’s one of those creepy books so you probably shouldn’t tell your friends.” Except they totally did tell their friends…and pretty much anyone else who couldn’t out run them. I am beyond lucky to have such support. The same way I’m beyond lucky to have Wonder Agent, Sarah Davies, on my side. Words are supposed to be my thing, but I’m always flat speechless when describing Sarah....
