March is the month for luck, leprechauns, and the color green, but when it comes to my dreams, I’m leaving nothing to luck. This month I am revitalized, rejuvenated, and ready to get back to the corned beef and potatoes of what writing means to me. A lot happened in February and I am still spinning from the rapid fire progress I made, in fact, there was so much progress that next week’s blog will actually be a vlog! Make sure to head over to YouTube and subscribe to my channel after you finish reading the news, and if you have questions or topics you want me to cover in the vlog, leave a comment.
Let’s make March the best of 2016 and may luck be ever in your favor!

It’s time for Pitch Madness and this round’s theme is Mario Kart! Wait, you don’t know what Pitch Madness is? Pitch Madness is a contest coordinated by the altruistic Brenda Drake where writers submit a pitch of their novels to win a request from one or more of participating agents. All that’s submitted by the author is a 35 word pitch and the first 250 words of the manuscript, the rest is up to the readers and agents. To follow the Pitch Madness results, keep an eye on twitter for #PitchMadness!
2016 has brought a long list of celebrity deaths, among them was the lovely Harper Lee. At the age of 89, Harper Lee passed away but left the world with quotes that encapsulate some of life’s greatest lessons. Here are a few favorites:
"'Atticus, he was real nice.' 'Most people are, Scout, when you finally see them.'" -To Kill a Mockingbird
"Lust swirled in those inky depths, and my feminine side jumped for joy and did the chicken dance."
"I nipped at his lips like a starving animal would a steak."
"His eyes went from a normal Crayola green to a bright forest green in an instant."
