My Birthday Is 8/26!

How could you make it my best birthday yet?

1) Click here and here and buy my books!

2) Already bought ‘em? Snap a book selfie with Queen of Pentacles and post it online! Bonus points for tagging me in the post.

3) Already read Queen of Pentacles? Review her here and here! (Pro Tip: The review can be super short, and it can totally be the same review in both places! Hell, if you’re pressed for review content, mention your favorite poem(s) from the collection. Short and simple!)

4) Tell your friends about Queen of Pentacles and Devils in the Valley and link to where they can buy ‘em.

5) You can also check out my interview about Queen of Pentacles here.

Love you guys! <3

(Now I’m going back to reading the birthday gift TJ got me–You’re Never Weird on the Internet [almost]–and drinking my fresh cuppa coffee. And then later more writing on my YA queer novel! And maybe sending stories to lit mags! And maybe sending out my new picture book! The night is still young, in that it’s mid-afternoon!)


On sale on Amazon Kindle for 1.99. Give it a read = )

After the death of his mother, Devin Maxwell joins Titan Force, an organization that collects supernatural artifacts using super powered agents. Devin quickly rises to become a brash, yet successful agent under the field name: Streetslam. He forms a pseudo family with his friends and fellow agents at Titan Force.

Devin’s allegiances are put to the test after an enigmatic billionaire offers him the chance to revive his mother, but only if he turns on his new family and steals a mysterious item from the Titan Force vault.

we want to be ruined.
there is something that
appeals to us about being
the main character in a story
this awful. we put on our best
dresses and wait in the street.
you’ll destroy us and afterward
we’ll kiss your neck.

Harry Potter: Magical Places from the Films: Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, and Beyond
by Jody Revenson (Author)

A comprehensive and delightful look at Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, The Burrow, Azkaban prison and all of the memorable places, both loved and feared, that brought the Harry Potter movies to life—a keepsake treasury bound in a debossed leatherette case and featuring a removable poster and interactive booklet.

Grand in its design and package, Harry Potter: Magical Places from the Films: Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, and Beyond offers an unprecedented look at the creative process that transformed the magical locations of the wizarding world from the page to the big screen. Inside, readers will discover the many challenges the studio faced to build the fantastical sites depicted in Rowling’s books, from Hogwarts castle and its many classrooms and dormitories, to Diagon Alley and the Ministry of Magic.

Organized by film appearance, Harry Potter: Magical Places from the Films: Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, and Beyond takes readers on a behind-the-scenes visual journey through all eight of the Harry Potter films. Jody Revenson provides detailed profiles of each location and pairs them with never-before-seen concept art, behind-the-scenes photographs, and film stills with supplementary information that reveals filmmaking secrets from the Warner Bros. archives.

Gorgeously designed, visually stunning, Harry Potter: Magical Places from the Films: Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, and Beyond is truly is an unmatched look at the imaginative sets that were designed, built, furnished, and digitally enhanced specifically for the films. It also includes real-life scouting locations across the stunning countryside of England, Wales, and Scotland—many of which would later become the settings for Hagrid’s hut, Shell Cottage, the Hogwarts bridge, and other iconic places.

This stunning full-color compendium also includes two exclusive bonus inserts: a map of Diagon Alley folded in an envelope in the back of the book, and “The Paintings of Hogwarts” catalog inserted in the text.
