Hi. In March of 2011, I started writing a book. I worked on it in bits and pieces, stealing scraps of time when my one-year-old was napping and my four-year-old was in preschool. Mostly, I wrote it at night, between the hours of 10pm and 2am, when the rest of my house was asleep. I finished that first draft in four months. I paid someone … Continue reading Want to Download Between by Megan Whitmer for FREE? (Epub, pdf, doc, txt)

When I announced my book deal with Spencer Hill Press back in January 2013, Between’s release date of July 29, 2014 seemed like an eternity away. AND NOW IT IS HERE. I MEAN SORT OF.

You guys. Listen. Book Expo America (BEA) is an experience. If you ever have the opportunity to go, you should. I went in 2013 for the first time, which was overwhelming and awesome.

I went … Continue reading Signing Between for the First Time!

Libba Bray and Myra McEntire, two authors I adore, have each written blog posts this week about their own personal experiences with depression. You can read Libba’s here, and Myra’s here. And you should. We all know that being silly and giggly and happy and supportive is kind of my thing, right? I love making people laugh. I love being a big dork. I’m constantly … Continue reading A Post about Feelings
Saturday mornings are pretty hectic around here. My oldest is trying out cheerleading for the first time and we have a game every Saturday at 10:00am. Since I like to sleep until 9:00am, this is never NOT crazy. And this morning, as I’m running out the door, I got this text from one of my closest friends in the world, the lovely Kelsey Macke. I … Continue reading BETWEEN is now available for pre-order. Related: I am a lucky person.

His latest release The Reintroduction Of Nick Flora boasts a bold step forward and as fellow … Continue reading An Interview with Singer-Songwriter Nick Flora
Nick Flora is an alterna-pop singer/songwriter out of Nashville who’s been writing songs and touring full time for close to a decade.

He responded within five minutes, and I was like, “Wow! Note to self: Nick can fill out an interview … Continue reading An Interview with Nick Flora, the Self-Appointed King of Sarcastic Charm
I’ve devoted a post to this word before, but after the insanity that is #PitchWars, I thought it might be helpful to offer a little refresher. Here goes. What’s your favorite movie of all time? WRONG. It’s Tombstone. I don’t understand why Starbucks sells hot chocolate. I can’t believe some people actually think Mockingjay made any sense at all in relation to The … Continue reading Subjectivity.
