Appreciation post for The Disappearances! First, @ebmwrites is amazing, and second- this book continues to blow my mind. ✨
As I think back on 2017 this stellar debut continues to leap out at me for so many reasons. Prose that is swoon-worthy, characters that are lovely, and the heart and soul of this story❤️
What’s a debut read in 2017 that keeps haunting you in the best way? Ps- I have plenty of more 2017 debuts to praise 😉❤️
Whoop whoop, see ya 2017!! Wishing you all a happy new year :) I’ve spent some time thinking about the positives of 2017.
One of my goals was to do yoga—and I did it faithfully for a whole year! About 6 months in, my back stopped hurting, so that was cool
Launched my debut-which is a MASSIVE deal and I’m so proud of that. And sold the rest of the series, yay! AND I made wise health decisions despite all the excitement and crazy!
This was a major project, but I overhauled all our finances to make everything more straightforward and easier for the future and did some goal planning there. This wasn’t an original goal, but I did it anyway and am oddly proud about it
I’m also glad I did my #30daysofcreativeliving in novemeber. It was super helpful for me to do and got my back into painting
Also think I was a good friend this year :) which im proud of considering how busy a debut year is!
Is there anything that happened in 2017 you’re proud of? Goal wise, creative wise, anything wise? SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE
Bathing in the lifeblood of my enemies with FOREST OF A THOUSAND LANTERNS! @juliecdao's lush and intelligent debut will fascinate and enthrall! Set in a Chinese-inspired court setting, it follows Xifeng's journey from village beauty to empress of the land. A re-telling of Snow White from the evil queen's perspective, this is one of my favorite books of the year! #ForestofaThousandLanterns#FOTL#2017debut#October2017release#snowwhite#evilqueen 👸🏻🐍🌸🗡

I had an amazing time celebrating THE WOOD's release at The Book Loft in German Village. So many amazing people came out to support, and I will never be able to properly explain how much that meant to me. It is too big for words. All I can say, both to those who have supported THE WOOD in person and online, is, "Thank you. Your love and support mean the world to me," and even that feels much too small. The past few weeks have been a dream come true, and I am so thankful for everyone who has been a part of it. Love you all. ❤️ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
