#Book #Signing Wrap Up: Ever After Author Affair

Today I'm over at Liberty Falls Down talking about why I love college romance. Check it out HERE.

On July 18, 2015 I had the pleasure of signing books at an event in my town, Columbus, Ohio.



How lovely not to lug books through an airport! I signed copies of college volleyball romance BLOCKED. I'm working hard on the sequel, ACED, slated for release in November.
I unveiled my new banner, purchased at Vista Print, at this event. It's uber tall!

It was fun sharing a table with YA Paranormal author Stephanie Keyes. What a sweetheart!

I also enjoyed the opportunity to meet spicy readers, like Elle from Elle's Friends and Books. She still likes to read fairy tales...they're just dirtier now.

What do you love about book signings?

Power Pose Your Way to #Confident #Writing #IWSG

It's July already and the rain won't stop in Ohio, waah. How can I train for swimming in a triathlon relay when thunder closes my outdoor pool? Time for July's Insecure Writer's Support Group, the brainchild of Alex Cavanaugh. Join us HERE.



Last week I delivered a presentation to swim campers about ways to build their confidence. I mentioned the technique "fake it till you make it". In other words, if you don't feel confident, sometimes acting confident on the outside can boost confidence on the inside. Head up, shoulders back, add a smile or serene facial expression, and you're good to go.

Then I heard about a TED talk by social psychologist Amy Cuddy that takes confident body language a step further. According to Dr. Cuddy, our nonverbals affect how others see us. But can nonverbals affect how we see ourselves?




Since I know you're busy and may not have time to watch the 21 minute video (it's worth it if you do have the time), I'll summarize…
