    Hi, I’m on EST and at your 9AM, I might not be able to get a tweet out — is there a cut off time? Also, I’m getting your emails, but not your tweets…
    how do i remedy that?


  • My dream cover has my heroine in her battle-ready outfit. I’d like to have trees with spiders in them in the background.

  • My MC’s Hogwart’s house is Gryffindor. She’s brave and loyal and has the heart to follow through even when things get tough.
