Attacus Atlas & Other Inventions: Mahalo and Aloha

Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Aloha! I can’t believe it’s been a year since I first joined the Debutante Ball. Mahalo to the previous class for giving me the opportunity to work alongside K.A. Doore, Martine Fournier Watson, Layne Fargo and Stephanie Jimenez, as part of the Class of 2019. I had no idea what kind of ride to expect as a debut author, and it was truly wonderful to be part of the DB-Hive….

Scream Until We’re Hoarse

Monday, August 19, 2019

Sunset from Gate’s Pass, Tucson.How has it already been a year? How has it only been a year? I feel like I’ve been on this ride for the better part of three years. As I step off and let the new, refreshed crew on, my legs are still shaking a bit but I’m all excited to go again – and soon. Unlike before, when I was waiting in trepidation, like in…

Share Your Joy

Monday, August 12, 2019

This week we’re talking about launch parties and swag: what we did, what worked, what didn’t. Fun fact: I didn’t really do either. Not so much because I didn’t want to, but because my book came out in March and I had started a new, fulltime job in January. On top of that, the toddler decided early 2019 was a great time to start fighting sleep and I was working…

What Comes Next?

Monday, August 5, 2019

My second book will be out in just over three months. I’ve been lucky in always knowing what my Book 2 would be – lucky in already having written it before I even knew there’d be a Book 1 and 3. In a way, I feel like I got to skip happily right over yea olde Book Two Syndrome – And land face-first into Book Three Syndrome instead. But this…

A Surprising, Feminist Literary Debut with Heart

Monday, July 29, 2019

This week we’re celebrating our fellow deb Stephanie’s release of THEY COULD HAVE NAME HER ANYTHING! A heartfelt, warm, and occasionally disturbing literary novel about family, racism, and dreams – those both fragile and terrifying. This is the story of a teenager caught between two worlds – her close-knit family in Queens and her private school full of rich white girls swimming in privilege they can’t even see. As one…
