Day 17, #IGWritersNov - What inspires you? Real life. Memories. Experiences. Dreams. The extraordinary ordinary. Right now, I'm reaching back to my #highschoolhockey days as the JV manager. Here's the yearbook photo from junior year - clearly I was pissed about something that day, but I loved these guys. #igauthorlife #thehockeybook

Swag! Happy Friday everybody! I was out of town when #IGWritersNov did author swag, so I missed it. Oh well, here are bookmarks from my recent book, ABOUT LAST SUMMER. What’s the most unusual swag you’ve ever collected from an author? Mine was a double measuring spoon from Brenda Novak that I picked up at the Romantic Times Convention a couple of years ago. I use it all the time! 😎 . . . #igauthorlife #teenbooks #youngadultbooks #yaromance #aboutlastsummer #patriciabtighe #nicemeasuringspoonbro #bookmarks
Khya and Tessen took a long time to get themselves on the same path, but they have a bond worth fighting for now. And a challenging dynamic that is well worth the wait. 😉 💙 💙 💙 💙 💙 💙 💙 #SeaOfStrangers #RyoganChronicles #yafantasybooks #yafantasy #yabooks #diverseYA #diversebooks #mogai #yaauthor #books #newbooks #newrelease #quoteart #quotes #igauthors #igauthorlife #author #authorsofinstagram #writinglife #writersofig
Feeling incredibly blessed. John and I scavenged through aisles of the clearance fall items and found this gem. A daily reminder that our life is filled with blessings despite the long days and bumps in the road we've faced. On another note, I've been listening to the audiobook of Steadfast Love by Lauren Chandler every morning on my way to work and loving it. Any recommendations for morning commute audio books after I finish this one would be greatly appreciated 😊
I've had a frustratingly unproductive day today. Between technology failures, Slimming World meetings, children, husbands, chores, cooking, and life, I've got no work done at all. Sigh. #authorsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #authorslife #writerslife #writingcommunity #authorsofig #writersofig #igauthorlife #indieauthor #indiebooks #stayathomemum #workingmum #workingfromhome #mumpreneur #mumsinbusiness #adventuresinparenting #mumlife
My kitties have been so good to me today, staying still and putting up with my bookstagram shenanigans. 😸😻 #felinefriday . Doubling up on #ReadWriteNovember prompts to make up for yesterday. Coincidentally (and thankfully for me) Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy works for “books that make you think” and “book your WIP is most like.” This is one of my favorite series in all literature, precisely because it makes me think. And at its heart, the series is about a boy and girl on a strange journey of discovery together - which is what my WIP Grave of the Goddess is. Both deal with religion and faith and how we look at the world and why. I hope someday to be as awesome as Pullman; I aim high. 😄 . . . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookaddict #bookish #writer #writing #writersofinstagram #writersofig #novelist #create #writerslife #igauthorlife #writerscommunity #writeeveryday #hisdarkmaterials #thesubtleknife #greycat #greycatsofinstagram

The first Tarnished Heroes book from @entangled_publishing SPY GAMES is coming soon! November 27th these childhood friends will have to make up or risk losing something more precious than their lives. #Kindle - http://amzn.to/2yyZJ0Z #iBooks - https://goo.gl/kXLDZF #Kobo - https://goo.gl/RJFVWC #Nook - https://goo.gl/d9j1Yi Haunted by the mistakes he made while fighting for his country, Rand Duncan has become the CIA’s go to man for tough jobs in an effort to atone for his sins. Late-night phone calls and covert meetings are the norm. Until she arrives and his past crashes into his present. Sarah Collins never thought she’d see her brother’s former best friend again. But one of Sarah’s fellow undercover informants has been captured and the briefcase containing the identities and locations of twelve other operatives are in Chinese hands. If Sarah and Rand can’t retrieve the documents, people will die. The shock wears off quick as the two must figure out how to retrieve the briefcase before it can be opened or sold. If they want to save lives, they must confront their past, while avoiding an enemy that will stop at nothing to crush them. #authorsofinstagram #authorlife #igauthorlife #amwriting #amwritingromance #writersofinstagram #writer #writerscommunity #writingcommunity #ilovewriting #writers #writercommunity #writinglife #storyteller #authorsofIG #authorslife #igwritingcommunity #amwritingfiction #instawriter #booklover #books #reading
