NESCBWI and an official book release! | Laura Pauling

NESCBWI and an official book release!

I’m finally recovering (sort of)  from a busy, incredible weekend at New England SCBWI.

Last night I tried to make blueberry streusel muffins. The key word being tried. I added double the amount of oil so had to try and double everything else. I dropped an egg. And then I forgot to add the topping before they baked.

I blame pure exhaustion and the fact that I’m still running on low.

But as always the conference was incredible. I got to hang with all my writing friends who over the years have turned into close friends. I met and roomed with my blogging friend Sue Quinn. I love meeting blogging friends! Plus, I sat in on her self publishing workshop. #awesome

Talking about writing and Indie publishing is always inspiring. And this year, on panels, agents stated that self-publishing is a viable path. Very different from two years ago. Times are changing. But we all knew that.

On top of all this, I released Prom Impossible a bit early to make sure it was ready to go for the Book Blast on May 13th! Yay! I had a lot of fun writing this story. I hope you love it too!

You can download Prom Impossible now!

Amazon ~ Barnes & Noble ~ Kobo ~ iTunes (coming soon)

Thanks for stopping by! And have a great week!

    Love the cover for Prom Impossible, Laura! Great timing for release, too. Makes me want to look through my old prom pics! My husband was my date for both Junior and Senior Proms. So fun going down memory lane. 🙂

    Happy reading and writing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

    You got to meet Sue Quinn?! So cool. You and her and a handful of others are among my first “blogging buddies” from way back when I first started. I would love to meet you guys in person someday!
