As you can see from the title of this blog post, I have finally learned how to use InDesign. If you're wondering what finally made me bite the bullet, I'll tell you: the new Word update didn't read the main fonts I was using to format The Belgrave Legacy, Unmoored, and all my other books. So, rather than having to outsource all my book formatting in the future, I finally learned InDesign (with the help of this amazing Skillshare course).
And in order for there to be consistency for the whole series, I also had to reformat The Belgrave Legacy (although I have yet to publish this because my cover artist has gotten so booked—which is amazing for her, but a bit tough for me). I learned it in the past 2 days and am now finally getting back to revising Unmoored. And I'm super proud that I learned how to do it quickly and am now able to continue format all my own books.

Title: Kiss Collector
Author: Wendy Higgins
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: December 18, 2018
Add on Goodreads
When seventeen-year-old Zae Monroe gets cheated on by the only guy she’s ever loved, then watches her parents' marriage crumble, she decides to forget about relationships and turn the tables on the boys of the world. It’s time to take what she wants, and what she wants are kisses. Athletes, musicians, poets, and bad boys—their lips are all on her agenda, and it's time to collect.
Zae proposes a contest with her friends to see who can kiss the most boys during spring break. But what starts as a harmless competition leads to a downward spiral she can’t seem to break free of. As family, academic, friend, and guy drama come to a head, Zae is forced to face the reasons behind her boy angst, and starts to wonder if she was wrong about the male race...or at least some of them.
The cover is finally here! I'm still working on revising Unmoored (my personal life got a little nuts this month but it's settling down). You may remember me saying that I loved it upon first seeing it, and it still makes me grin from ear to ear whenever I look at it.
I hope you're going to love as much as I do. And here it is. Enjoy!
Today's the day! You can finally grab your copy of this amazing New Adult urban fantasy romance featuring college, fae, music, and magic.
Title: Twisted Fate
Series: Twisted, 1
Author: Jessi Elliott
Genre: NA Urban Fantasy
Publication Date: February 13, 2018
Being kidnapped by the Leader of the Fae really puts a dent in your senior year.
Aurora Marshall is sharp, witty, and always has a plan. Ready to finish her business degree and graduate, her life is going smoothly—until the night she meets Tristan Westbrook.
Tristan, the overbearing, gorgeous fae leader, and an admired businessman in the human world, is all kinds of dangerous. While he finds Aurora intriguing, her refusal to bend to his will keeps them locked in a constant power struggle.
Entering into a deal is the only way to escape Tristan’s clutches, which only plunges Aurora deeper into the fae world. With her future at stake, she is forced to handle his arrogance and extraordinary fae abilities as she fights to stay grounded in her mundane life.
Not to mention her struggle to ignore the growing attraction she knows she shouldn’t feel for the man who kidnapped her.
When people said college would be the most exciting time of her life, Aurora never thought this is what they meant.
I have something to confess: since my last blog post, I haven't revised any more of Unmoored. I got a new schedule for my semester off which has been very draining while I've adapted to it. However, I'm hoping this week will be a lot more productive for me on the revising front.
Today also kicks off the first of 4 consecutive days I'll be blogging because today is Monday (so my normal check in), tomorrow is the release of my friend's book Twisted Fate, Wednesday is the cover reveal for Unmoored, and Thursday I'm sharing the cover for one of my favorite author's new book: Kiss Collector.
So, I'm going to leave it at that: short and sweet, and get to revising!
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,
