You've got to think of this from the reader's perspective. READERS NEED BOOKS. They're desperate for them. And no writer in the world can keep up with the demands of readers. No one. I used to read a book a day. I can't write that fast. So don't think your books won't be wanted. It's impossible.
Also... fun fact: It's WAY better to write your own books than to read someone else's. So, focus. Start thinking of your own twist. Even if there's an idea that's similar to yours don't worry about it. No one will tell the story like you will. And if I was worried about all the other books out there that were similar to mine, I would've never written. I wrote fairy tales the way they should've been written. :) Fairy tales. You know where hundreds of other authors are telling the same story--with their own spin. Just jump in there and tell yours. It's worth it. I promise. (less)

MY NORTHANGER ABBEY!!

It's here! it's here! She's finally HERE!! Book Baby #50!!
Isn't she gorgeous? She's so much fun! I just love this adorable book. 
I hope you love her too! 






The best part about this book is that even though it's part of the Austen in Love Series, it's completely standalone. I'm introducing all new characters and you definitely don't need to read the other three books first. Here's the blurb Read more of this blog post »

Teazia Cockburn Hi, I'm currently reading Northanger Alibi, and can I just say I am loving it, but, just one thing I have to ask - why are you being so mean to Jacob Black with the character Jaden. Not that I'm 'Team Jacob', I'm "Team Edward for Bella so that Jacob is left for me!" But so far good book, just don't be mean to Jacob in the future, he is absolutely wonderful!
