In the pause: My book, Emerson Page and Where the Light Enters, will be released one month from today

We’re in the home stretch to publication! My young adult book, Emerson Page and Where the Light Enters, will be published one month from today. I am bursting with excitement! To celebrate, I’ve got some goodies for you:

1.) I’m releasing the prologue of the book and running a giveaway of two signed copies with a special gift for my email list subscribers. To get the prologue sent to you and to sign up for the giveaway, click here! If you’re already on my email list, you’ll get the prologue and automatically be entered in the giveaway. No need to sign up again.

2.) It’s also one month until the start of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), the program that encouraged and motivated me exactly three years ago to write the first draft of Emerson’s first book in a month. This year during NaNoWriMo, I’ll be writing the first draft of Emerson’s second book. If you want to write a book along with me, I’ve got some two books to give away to help you out: Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott and Structuring Your Novel by K.M. Weiland. These two books have helped me tremendously and I’m doing an Amazon giveaway of them. Click here to sign up for the Bird by Bird giveaway and click here to sign up for the Structuring Your Novel giveaway!

One month! Get pumped!

Proud alumnae of the University of Pennsylvania (BA) and the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia (MBA). Inspired by ancient wisdom & modern tech. Proliferator of goodness. Opener of doors. Friend to animals. Fan of creative work in all its wondrous forms. I use my business skills to create passion projects that build a better world. I’ve been called the happiest New Yorker, and I try hard to live up to that title every day. The long of it: My career has stretched across Capitol Hill, Broadway theatre, education, nonprofit fundraising, health and wellness, and Fortune 500 companies in retail, media, entertainment, technology, and financial services. I’ve been a product developer and product manager, theater manager, strategic consultant, marketer, voice over artist, , teacher, and fundraiser. I use my business and storytelling to support and sustain passion projects that build a better world. In every experience, I’ve used my sense of and respect for elegant design to develop meaningful products, services, programs, and events.

I’m currently working on the second book in the series. A recovering multi-tasker, I’m equally at home in front of my Mac, on my yoga mat, walking my rescue dog, Phineas, traveling with a purpose, or practicing the high-art of people watching. I also cut up small bits of paper and put them back together as a collage artist. My company: I’m bringing together all of my business and creative career paths as the Founder of Double or Nothing Media: • I craft products, programs, and projects that make a difference; • I build the business plans that make what I craft financially sustainable; • I tell the stories that matter about the people, places, and products that inspire me.
