As someone who’s been doing National Novel Writing Month for the past six years, I was excited to the point of fangirling by the opportunity to write for their Camp Nano blog. In true bookworm form, I wrote about books. You can read my blog post here.

Tamora Pierce was one of my favorite authors during my adolescence. Though I haven’t read her books in a while, they still hold a special place in my heart and on my shelf. Read about her Immortals series in my new Magus Blog article.
There’s nothing that makes me happier than the fiction section of a bookstore. Being able to take care of that section and even stock it? Oh man… read all about it in my new Magus Blog post.
I started researching Tarot for a small scene in a book that has been currently exiled to the drawer. Like many research projects it got (wonderfully) out of hand. I ended up with two decks, an online class, and a great book by Jessa Crispin. You can read my review of her book The Creative Tarot in my new Magus Bog post.
Working in a bookstore, especially one specializing in magic, religion, and the occult is a temptation for any writer. As someone working on an urban fantasy novel, it’s doubly so. See how I (attempt) to resist temptation in my new Magus Books Blog post.
The idea of querying an agent is a scary one. You’re putting yourself out there for the inevitable rejection with the burning hope for acceptance. Agents and publishers can seem like far off dwellers of ivory towers staring down their noses at you, but Manuscript Wishlist brings them closer to Earth.
Manuscript Wishlist is a portal linking writers with agents and editors. “Manuscript Wish List® and #MSWL are designed to answer one crucial question in the submissions process: ‘What do you wish you had in your inbox?’” According to the site’s about page. It has recently been revamped and now agents and editors can update their own pages by themselves every time the answer to this question changes, so writers can be up-to-date on their wishlists. The site is a great resource for finding agents in a relatable, easily searchable database that helps you see them as humans. I have been using it to compile a list of agents that I will query once I am done with the final edit of my novel. I have found it really easy to use and helpful.
So if you are looking for representation and are not sure where to start: check out Manuscript Wishlist!
