Dream Cast and a Study Guide | Day 4


I've learned a lot through this publishing and promoting process. Like, don't wait to write 8 blog tour posts the week of the blog tour. Coffee, you were my only friend this week. =)

Anyway, I have a fun lineup today! Do you want to see my dream cast if It Took a War was turned into a movie?! It's an epic cast, I must say. Check it out at The Pen of a Ready Writer.



I also created a study guide targeted for middle schoolers to go along with It Took a War! I'm posting about that over on my sister's blog, The Art of Making a Home.




I took a trip down memory lane this week. The book on the left I wrote when I was 9. The one on the right I wrote ten years later. I think I've come a long way, what do you think?? =)


Then there's the book I wrote when I was 12. My older siblings helped me get it bound for my parents as a Christmas gift 7 years ago!


And their reviews on the back are pretty priceless! haha!




As always, if you haven't entered the giveaway yet you can do so below. I'll announce the winner on Saturday!

Now, go drink some hot chocolate and sing Christmas songs. It's an order.

  5. Looks like Jeremy Irvine is gonna have his work cut out for him when our books get turned into movies. ^.^ (I cast him for Joshua Mansforth.) Also, your early books are hilarious!! I love the reviews on your Christmas one. ;)

    1. Thanks, Hannah!! I wanted to find a book I wrote when I was about 7 to share, but I'd have to dig through boxes to find it. It went something like this:

      "Hello," said John.
      "Hello," said Tom.
      "Would you like to come over?" said John.
      "Sure," said Tom.
      In a few minutes, Tom came over.
      "Hi Tom," said John.
      "Hi John," said Tom.

      Yup. Good stuff. =) hahaha
