While I was at the historic village yesterday, I bought a few things to add to my desk that reminded me of my writing characters and will hopefully help inspire me to write. I've been looking for a cool mug and this handmade one is perfect since I'm writing about a culture of artists. The egg timer represents my character who collects timers/hourglasses. (This is my second one of these- I'm always looking out for larger ones, but the ones I've found besides these always have skulls on them. I don't want gothic.) And the compass is for my main character who is a cartographer. I use compasses to represent him. So these are great additions to my writing desk! 💚 #writer#writersofinstagram#writersofig#authorsofinstagram#author#fantasywriter#amwriting#writing
Just a little update on where I am right now. It's been a long month filled with a lot of moments where I haven't been sure if I was going to make it or not, but now I am seeing the finish line. <3
So far, my muse has had me write the seventh book in my #lightworker series (I'm about 40K in), the first book of the spin-off, and re-write parts of the sixth book. No matter where she takes me, there is never a dull moment for a #MuseServant .
What are you working on right now? Are you close to completing a goal, writing or otherwise? If so, I'd love to hear about it. Let's help push each other to get to the finish line.
3 years ago today I said yes.
3 years ago today I decided I was going to take a huge leap of faith and not turn back.
3 years ago today I made a decision that everyone advised me not to.
3 years ago today while teaching 2nd grade full time, taking 6 grad classes, raising 3 toddlers and 7 months pregnant with my 4th, writing and doing photography on the side to help attempt to make ends meet, I started my own business from home.
3 years ago today I charged $160 on a maxed out credit card but knew deep down it would be the best investment of my life.
3 years ago today I said YES, there will be NO perfect time but the only "right" time was NOW.
3 years ago today I became a Beachbody Coach.
...and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't praise God up and down for being the One constant beside me, giving me the gentle nudge that this was my answer to all I had been praying for. .
In honor of my 💕anniversary💕of what retired me from my teaching job at the age of 31, helped me bounce back after 4 babies, and now enables me to personally mentor hundreds of others to have the same success as I have had, this Wednesday I am offering a sneak peek into my business and answering all of your questions and hiring two more coaches before the end of June 🙌🏻

This Cover Tho 😍
Seducing Lola by @jessprince_writes is coming July 18th. You don't want to miss out on this sexy standalone full of romance and comedy. If you haven't added it to your TBR lists be sure to do that now!
I’ve had my fair share of bad relationships. I’ve dated liars, cheaters, shoe fetishists, and everything in between. Sure, these experiences would make any woman cynical when it comes to dipping her toe back into the dating pool, but I used my past for good and made a career out of helping other women avoid going down the same paths I had.
And I was damn good at it.
Until a random act of fate set my life on a course I’d been avoiding for years, and put me in the crosshairs of a man that made me feel things I swore to never feel again.
Now I’m in his sights and it seems like he’ll stop at nothing to seduce the hell out of me. He might hold my career in the palm of his hands, but if Grayson Lockhart thinks he can blackmail me into submission with his sexy voice and sexy hands and sexy everything, then he’s…probably right.
Ok so my own inner Little Miss Critical almost had a field day when I sat down at the desk and before I'd even adjusted my seat, we were live! But thankfully, I've now trained Little Miss Critical to keep her comments to herself. Because, she actually doesn't know best! I took a deep breath, grounded myself and let my heart lead. I'm really grateful to WGN's professional & brilliant journalists. They gave me the opportunity to spread my message & also another opportunity to not let my inner LMC get the best of me. Don't let anyone, even yourself, stop you from sharing your light & gifts with this world. To find out more about how to retrain your own LMC, head to the Girl Unfiltered website & download the first chapter of my book free ❤️💋
• SUCH A BEAUTIFUL COVER •
THE BEAUTY OF CHAOS by @authorlizmonroe

“The Beauty of Chaos is a captivating and touching love story, as passionate and heartbreaking as it is hopeful. You can’t help but ￼￼become invested in these unique characters so that their every high and low becomes your own.” – Yessi Smith, Author of Quietly Making Noise and Life Interrupted ***SYNOPSIS***
I needed something new.
I couldn’t live in the city my mom died in, knowing that the only family I had left hated me. So I left.
It was selfish but I did it to protect my heart. I ran away from a city of heartbreak to one where I could start fresh. A new job a few states away was the opportunity I needed and I took it with hopes of rebuilding my life while healing.
I didn’t think I would meet anyone.
I didn’t think I would give my heart away.
I didn’t think I could risk breaking all over again.
But I did meet someone. I met him.
And I did give my heart away.
But this time I got to decide, let the love break me or accept that sometimes there’s beauty in chaos. 📚📚Head on over to Liz Monroe's Facebook for info on the #giveaway and #releasedayblitz 📚📚 #books#bookstagram#booklove#bookcover#newadult#debutnovel#newadultbooks#contemporaryromance#romancenovel#authorsofinstagram

I’m hit by a storm of desire to kiss him better. It’s a tornado, an avalanche in my body, and in one breathless moment, I decide to go for it. It’s okay. I can take the blame for it later.
I break the rules and reach up and kiss him. A feathery peck on his plump lips, it’s a kiss of solidarity, a kiss that intends to tell him I understand—but one isn’t enough. It only manages to ratchet up my lust. So I give him another, this time on the corner of his mouth, and then another one on his jaw.
It’s not enough, these small, barely-there touches. I want more, but I won’t take it. I’ll be good; I’ll only give.
Abruptly, he fists my curls and stops me. I look at him fearfully, ready to apologize—not for the kiss, but for being the kisser. His gaze reflects passion, stark, raving need, and I shiver, despite wearing layers and sweating with his heat. “Are you trying to kiss me, Layla?” he rasps, flexing his fingers on my makeshift ponytail.
He couldn’t tell? Blush rises to the surface and I know I’m glowing like a neon sign. Swallowing, I nod. “Yes.”
He inches closer to me, still not touching—as impossible as that is—but infinitely closer. “You want to kiss me, Miss Robinson, you do it right.” #romanceauthor#indieauthor#authorsofinstagram#ComingSoon#StudentTeacherRomance#ThomasAndLayla#TheUnrequited#AssholeAlert#angst
You know the only thing that sucks about writing? You have less time to read things you really want to read. Like this gem. #Repost @nadegekrichards (@get_repost)
• • They left us behind. Some say it was a mistake, while others say it was a purge. As for me? Well, I say it was my damned liberation.
They call me Ari.
Three years after being captured by the Reapers, I am no longer human. With the Y-506 virus destroying what's left of Silo, no one truly is anymore. We now work for them, these things that control us. We kill for them, warding off the black-eyed leviathans that roam the desert hills. In return, we get to keep some piece of our past.
But you see, not all of us are compliant. Not all of us could be changed. We haven't forgotten. I'm different, and so is Jonathus.
There are much more like us.
They took my mother and threatened the life of my sister, forcing me into a life of exile. I am hellbent on my revenge. Taking back Silo one asylum at a time is our means to an end. Joining the Underground is only the beginning... My name is Mathai Porter. The invasion starts now.
Er ist daaa... ENDLICH! 📚 NEUERSCHEINUNG 📚 "Kill Fear" von Ani Briska
Klappentext: "Es sind die Tränen, die meine größte Schwäche zum Ausdruck bringen"
15 Jahre ist es her, dass Avery die schlimmsten Tage ihres Lebens erlebt hat und heute ist sie bereit für die Rache.
Bekannt als "Angel of Pain" versetzt sie ganz Chicago in Angst und Schrecken.
Die Morde an den Männern, die ihr einst alles nahmen, sind grauenvoll und abartig.
Lediglich ihr Bruder Nolan scheint noch zu Avery vordringen zu können, bis sie in einem Club auf Dean trifft.
Der Mann, der nur für eine schnelle Nummer herhalten sollte, verändert ihr Leben drastisch.
Denn Dean hat die Fähigkeit, sie von den Morden abzulenken und ihr endlich die Ruhe zu verschaffen, nach der sich Avery sehnt.
Doch wird es ausreichen die Morde zu stoppen? Denn wenn Avery sich ein Ziel gesetzt hat, dann das alle 22 Männer sterben müssen!
