So I'm back from the dead, and boy have I missed everyone. It's been a crazy year; I transferred into the University of Greenwich in London, I've been interning lots, seeing the city, cutting my hair off...all manner of busy things. However, dA has never been far from my mind or heart and I have so missed the community. Hopefully I can get more on here in the future.
The big news I have is that the publishing company I work for is shortly releasing a collection of YA scifi short stories. Each story is a standalone, but they all feed into an umbrella plot of brewing rebellion and galactic unrest. There's romance, action, comedy, and plenty of excitement. For more information, click on the link below.www.goodreads.com/book/show/25…
Even more exciting, I helped edit the collection, and one of the stories is ACTUALLY MINE
Eeeeeep!!! It's my first published piece and even though it's just a short story, partially written with my colleagues, I feel very strongly about this book as a whole and really hope that you all get a chance to read it.
And if you know Wattpad at all, you'll know #Wattpad4
member and uber famous Wattpad celebutante Erin Latimer
is one of the other authors involved. She also recently joined the company and will be publishing FROST with us!
