Bird Face Wendy

Things relevant to reading, writing, publishing or marketing teen fiction.

Sorry for the long break—7 months! So…

May I make it up to you with a SALE? May 20-26, the Amazon ebook version of 6 Dates to Disaster is only 99 cents.

6 Dates to Disaster FC 5x8

Maybe my timing isn’t all that bad, because you can catch up with Wendy and her friends at a reduced price while waiting for book four of the Bird Face series, 3 Things to Forget. Watch for it in September!

And for the first time, I have *completed* a short story! (Never thought I’d do it.) “Recreation” will be part of an anthology, Secrets.

Release Day! First Scene Preview: 6 Dates to Disaster

banner3book

My publisher featured 6 Dates to Disaster today on the Write Integrity Press blog with the first scene for your convenience. I hope you enjoy reading it!

This is the third book of the Bird Face series, and Jennifer is back in Wendy’s life, although not shown in the first scene. The story addresses honesty and how dishonesty can damage a teen’s relationships and future.

Be sure to check out all three of the books so far in the series on my Amazon author page! (The original Bird Face book, which is out-of-print, is still listed there, too. That story became 8 Notes to a Nobody.)

Thank you for reading.

Cover Reveal! Book three of the Bird Face series

Coordinates well with the previous two, don’t you think? If the image appears pixilated, it also does to me. I’ve requested a higher-resolution image from my publisher. All part of the process of getting a new book ready for publication! The anticipated release date is December 6.

My first radio interview aired!

Yesterday, I was thrilled to be hosted on Express Yourself Teen Radio out of California. It is described as the #1 top-rated YA radio program in the world and is a part of the Voice America Kids Network.

I blogged about how I prepared for the recording in a recent post, 6 Tips for a Successful Radio Interview via Skype.

girl.headphones  Express Yourself Teen Radio reaches teens all over the globe! My teen hosts, Henna Hundal and Asia Gonzales, were impressive and loads of fun.

The program’s topic was the Importance of Learning Life Skills. We talked about how Bird Face and its main character, Wendy, help demonstrate that and how writers encounter the need for specific life skills. Henna provides an excellent introduction of the topic and then the interview begins.

Take a listen and let me know what you think! Episode: Importance of Life Skills
