What’s New?

What’s up, writing world?! Life is busy as ever for me. This week I get to present for the first time at a regional conference for a national advising association, so that’s fun. It’s all about integrating career and academic advising. If you work in this realm and haven’t explored that option, message me!! What we are doing at Purdue is pretty awesome, and I’m happy to share the ideas. Boiler up!

As for my writing progress, the BoilerMAKER book has been a giant ball of stress while also being a fun project that I will never regret tackling. What a learning experience! I was ready to poke my eyes out midway through tax season, but I survived. The conferences, book signings, and community outreach events have been fantastic. I know it’s a lot of time, but every time a child’s face lights up when I turn a page, I know it’s worth it. My next event is May first in the afternoon at Barnes & Noble in Lafayette. If you’re bored, come on out!!

So what about my other stuff? Well four of my manuscripts are out on submission, so that’s good news. I have a fifth manuscript that’s a bit of a special project, and that one is about to get really interesting. I can’t say much yet, but I’ll fill in with more details as soon as I can. Right now, I want to focus on looking for new ideas. If there’s something you feel is missing in the market, send the idea my way and I will see what I can do!

Well, it’s off to bed for this busy mama. Cheers!
