A Way to Help

If you guys wouldn’t mind, I could really use your help. It costs nothing and only takes a few seconds of your time. Would you please consider adding Lady Catherine Says to your Goodreads’ Want to Read shelf? By adding it to your shelf, it will raise visibility for my book among other readers.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Go to Goodreads and find my book (or click this link: LINK.)
  2. Hit the green button that says “Want to Read.”

That’s it 🙂 If you don’t have a Goodreads account, they’re really easy to set up and FREE! Just Google Goodreads.

I hope everyone up north is staying warm! And for all experiencing summer right now: Stay cool and enjoy!

Keep your pen on the page,


Read So Far This Year

The year is not yet out, but I’ve surpassed my goal of reading twenty books in 2015 with the grand total of twenty-seven! (I haven’t included them all on GoodReads.)

Here are most of them:

Motivation/Consequences: Beth Vs. NaNo

So, I took a break from writing yesterday, as I usually do on Sundays. BUT I did some plotting. And I did some more plotting today. And I am so excited I can’t even…I think that’s why I accidentally wrote two NaNoWriMo posts and, er, posted them. Oops. Forgive me? Please?

Here’s a picture of a blue crab to make up for it:


But now I need some motivation to finish NaNoWriMo. I’ve done it three or so times (not including Camp NaNoWriMo), but have never quite made it to the required 50,000 words before December 1st. SO. If I…fall short this year…there needs to be consequences. Fun consequences, because that’s how I roll.


What should happen, should I fail to write 50k next month? These are your options:

A) I’ll do an audio reading of the first page of my middle grade project “How NOT to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse”

B) I’ll read the song of your choosing in either an awful Irish, French, Cockney, English, or Russian accent.

C) A free e-copy of In a Pickle to one random commenter

And now I’ve written yet another post about NaNoWriMo.
