Hey blueboarders! I'm celebrating a book birthday this week -- MACY McMILLAN AND THE RAINBOW GODDESS, a middle grade novel in verse released on the 15th. MACY was sold on proposal, which meant I had to *gasp* outline it before writing.  :sadcry It's the first manuscript I've written to an outline, and my pantser-self was a little freaked-out by the process. I survived though, lol, and to my continued astonishment, the book was accepted and is now out in the world. It's about friendship, family, books, and the way stories connect us. And cookies! It's about cookies!  :books3 :cookie :cookie :cookie :books3 Thanks for letting me share my excitement here!
