Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it brings the whole family together.
Family is not only important to me, but also Fawn Belgrave in The Belgrave Legacy. The reason Fawn is even The Chosen One is because she is a 7th-generation witch. In addition to having strong support from her mother and twin brother, she also has access to all the previous witches in her lineage (not that they're the most helpful).
Anyone who knows me can tell you that I'm always busy. In middle school, I spent most of my free time coming up with ideas for Our Hope Is Here. It wasn't until right before high school that I really started writing (The Belgrave Daughter—now The Belgrave Legacy). In high school, I had a lot less free time, but I somehow squeezed in writing all 3 novels in The Belgrave Legacy trilogy (before it became 1 book) and starting The Matchmakers.
Now that I'm in college, I've barely written a new word since last January (when I revised and edited The Belgrave Legacy for the last time before putting it on preorder). I sadly haven't touched The Matchmakers in way too long, despite my best intentions to finish it two summers ago... then last summer... and then this November for NaNoWriMo. The truth is I definitely haven't prioritized it like I should, but I've been giving myself the mental breaks I didn't give myself last year (which led to a not-so-minor breakdown).
You may be wondering at this point: What's with the Hamilton-reference title if you're saying you haven't written a novel in a while?
My answer: just because I haven't been writing my books, doesn't mean I haven't been writing.

From First Draft to Publication
Two of the previous posts, Day 1 and Day 2, talk about the beginnings of The Belgrave Legacy, both the inception of the idea and a few examples of how the first draft has changed in transforming into the published version of The Belgrave Legacy that was released yesterday (you can find all the buy links below).
Today, I'm going into a bit more into the functional details alluded to in both of those other posts (mostly, the timeframe it took from start to finish).
It's finally here!!! The Belgrave Legacy in finally here and I'm so excited about it! You can now buy it from all major eBook retailers. How awesome is that?

Giveaway Final Call
In case you missed my first post about this awesome giveaway, here is a condensed version:
In honor of The Belgrave Legacy being published tomorrow, I've been hosting a kindle book giveaway for the whole month with the first installments in each of my favorite paranormal book boyfriend's series. This can mean that they are magic, are supernatural, or otherwise not a normal human.
And who are the boys on this list (and also are Caleb Pearce's literary brothers)? In no particular order:
I'm a self-published author (because being a college student wasn't hard enough!) and spend most of my time doing homework. I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
