& this tiny babe arrived today from angel friends at Future Tense Books (if you’re in pdx, go buy every every every single Future Tense book at Powell’s n o w // they’re AMAZING).
💻Felicy Fenton’s essay User Not Found is out this week in tiny book form and examines life in the internet and smart phone age— cell phone pictures, texting, the endless scroll... Fenton is weird. Surreal. Terrifying. but also wonderful?
📱”It happened frequently, the sky shifted from blue to red to black and the day was gone and I was still there masticating the frayed remains of a fingernail, scrolling through screens, two of them. One large. One small. My upper back ached. My chin doubled and tripled. My hips melted through the slats of chairs. I assumed someone would come and feed me by hand, then through a tube. Let me check your eyes, they would say. It looks like you’ve lost your vision, they would say. We are going to have to scoop out your eyeballs and feed them to the tiger sharks.”
⌚️we’re so excited to plow through this & then immediately do it again.

— ABOUT: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Blend a former tight end with a bad reputation ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
and a gorgeous computer geek who doesn’t date.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Toss in two matchmaking grannies who have only One Wish this Christmas.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lilly Martelli’s first vacation in over a year has her on a mission to support her two busybody relatives in St. Helena. Helping the grannies bake stinky fruitcakes for their Christmas bake sale is bad enough, but being forced to co-host the fund-raiser with Mr.-Fun-in-the-pants Brett Benning might be too hot to handle.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Brett had hoped retiring from football, becoming a firefighter, and moving back to Napa Valley would be enough to repair his reputation. But he’s sick to death of the tiny town gossip, and tired of dating in the shallow end of the pool. He’s looking to score The One. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are the odds he’d find her while helping with the annual bake sale? His smart and sexy co-chair has him eating out of her hands and asking for seconds of her grandmother’s nasty fruitcake. For the first time in his life, Brett might be in over his head.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“Look around and you will see all the things a hug can be!” Wishing a Happy Book Birthday to @littlelisais6
’s A HUG IS FOR HOLDING ME. 🤗 💕
💡Today is a very special day for my work in progress. One year ago, on December 11th, I started writing the words of the first draft. And now, I am working on the final draft.
Did I wonder what I’d be doing in exactly one year when I wrote that first word? I doubt it. You really shouldn’t think about it, in fact. If I had known how many challenges lay ahead of me, I probably would have stopped writing right there.
But I’ve made it. And now, I know the process is worth it, no matter how difficult it may be. I still have rewrites and final touches left, but I’m almost to the finish line.
The only question now is, does that count as the novel’s birthday? Or is the release date? Or do books have two birthdays? This is very important. 🤔
It’s Lucky in Love’s book birthday today! Ways to celebrate: 1. Buy the book at your local bookstore. If they don’t have it in stock yet, ask them to order it. 2. Buy it online. 3. Write a review where you bought it online, on Goodreads, wherever. 4. Get engaged (I’ve got a few of you in mind)! 5. Wear an Evil Eye, eat a pomegranate, tell someone you love how lucky you are to have them in your life. And if you’ve done any of the above already, thank you so much! This little red book and I are lucky to know you! Party on!
Happy Book Birthday to Sugarcoated, my dark retelling of Hansel and Gretel's witch. How should I celebrate?
Here's what you need to know:
Hansel and Gretel’s witch was actually on their side... Annika’s job is to create a cake to match the candy-colored rooftops, nightly firework shows, and daily parades ending in unexpected executions for the mad king’s ball, but her true mission is to sneak a thirteen-year-old assassin into the palace inside her cake using her gift of illusions.
Hansel’s job is to protect his little sister, Gretel, once she assassinates King Levin and ends the destruction in Candestrachen, using his power over light to rescue the young girl from the chaos her influence over life and death will create.
When the entire forest reconstructs itself under Gretel’s command while trying to save herself from a king’s guard, Hansel and Annika must put their feelings aside and ensure their plan holds true—even if it means one of them has to sacrifice themselves to protect the mission.
Her illusions were meant to save her….but not everyone will survive the assassination attempt.
Perfect for fans of A.G. Howard's Splintered, Veronica Roth's Divergent, and Marissa Meyer's Cinder.

— ABOUT: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can freedom mean forever?
Freedom is paramount for Indy Adams. The last thing she needs is to be tied down. About to seal her first big sale in the Chicago real estate market, Indy is ready to catapult her career to a new level. And the sexy, bachelor client is exactly the kind of guy who would understand her no-strings approach.
Griffin Walker’s reputation as a ladies’ man has put him in a bad light as he tries to get his charitable foundation off the ground. He’s trying to quietly clean up his image and can’t understand why Indy wants nothing except a few steamy nights together. Despite his romantic track record, Griffin wants to build a new life—with Indy. But an unplanned pregnancy may lead them both to a life they never expected. Will Griffin get his chance to show Indy more than a good time?

Hi. Um. Okay.
This is not an easy post for me to make, but it’s something that I really need to talk about and have needed to talk about for quite some time.
As many of you know, I’m not in school right now, I’m not even at home right now. I’m in Colorado staying with my dad. But I haven’t explained exactly why, so here goes:
I have an eating disorder. And I have been struggling with it for the past year and a half.
It’s the reason I rarely upload and why I’ve been so absent from social media. I haven’t had the energy to be myself for far too long.
I’ve been in treatment for just over a month now so I am getting the help and support I need (I’ve also been so lucky to be surrounded by such incredible friends who have supported me from the beginning, so thank you, I love you)
I am planning on making a video, like a Q&A, to better explain what I’ve been going through. If you have any questions, ED related or not, feel free to ask and I’ll try to answer them as best I can in a video soon.
I spent a very long time convincing myself that I wasn’t “sick enough” to get help. I was wrong. I don’t have to face it alone. I deserve help. And so do you. ♥️
