Okay, it's me so it's not really going to be a one-word blog post. Because it is a big week for me. The kids are home for a few more days and then... My youngest starts kindergarten. It feels like the beginning of a new era. I have lots and lots of feelings about this. Lots and lots of feelings about all the things that have happened/are happening this week. I will try to sum them up in a few pictures (yes, I have discovered Instagram and I LOVE it) and a one-word caption.
In regards to this last one, I assume that unless you've been living under a rock, you have heard what Rep Akin said about rape victims. It is worth your time to read this article from the NYT.
I am a YA writer (repped by Sarah LaPolla at Curtis Brown LTD), rape victim activist, feminist, and mom. My debut novel FAULT LINE comes out with SimonPulse on 11/12/13. My second book BLEED LIKE ME comes out from SimonPulse in Fall 2014.
