Once upon a time there was an emerging author who simply wished to sign a book contract with a publisher. EA thought her talents were natural and developed and couldn’t understand the rejections she received from editors and agents galore. EA finally joined an online critique group. She smugly submitted a story for critique and sat back waiting for the praise. Her ego was purplish and tender after reading through the honest (and frankly well thought out – yeah, whatever!) evaluations of her work. Stupid critique group. What do they know?

However, there was enough praise peppered through out that after a bag of Reeses and a bottle of Shiraz she cautiously submitted another story to the critique group. And then another. Then she critiqued the work submitted by her fellow critters and learned even more about her own work and saw shining examples of strong writing. EA was inspired to write. To write a lot. And to write better. EA developed a huge crush on her critique group (as a whole, nothing creepy about that.) EA also realized she wasn’t writing for the correct audience. 

Years and years and maybe even more years later, EA got a book contract. Life was good. The end.

Look at how much fun it is to stack copies of different books on your table at signing events. When people asked, “Do you have any books published?” see how EA almost apologized for only having one title to refer to. 

SEE how close EA is to having the second?

THE WISHING WELL, Another Weaver Tale

Molly Minstrel is treated worse than Cinderella by her mom and sisters. When Molly meets the magical creature, Unwanted, she wishes her problems away. However, you must first understand what you need before knowing what to ask for. Molly will have to look within for the solution to her troubles.


EA is very happy.

EA loves you! (there’s nothing creepy about that! So just drop it.)

On a more serious note. Thank you to illustrator, K.C. Snider, for the lovely artwork for this cover. Your talent amazes and inspires me.
