Happy Book Birthday Article 5

Book I'm currently reading: Taking a break from reading because of intensive edit.

This morning's running conditions: So close to finishing book 3 that I've cut out everything

Song I placed on repeat while making kiddos lunches this morning: Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield

Why I love the song: Makes me want to dance and I totally connect to the lyrics as a writer

Staring at the blank page before you

Open up the dirty window

Let the sun illuminate the words

That you could not find Reaching for something in the distance

So close you can almost taste it Release your inhibitions


Happy Book Birthday ARTICLE 5!



ARTICLE 5 is written by one of the most amazing people I have ever met: Kristen Simmons. Kristen, like myself, is an author debuting in 2012. We met via blog group called The Apocalypsies (check us out: http://apocalypsies.blogspot.com/). When we realized that we lived in the same city, we met up at a local Panera.

Now, meeting someone in person for the first time is pretty nerve wracking. You don't know what they look like. You don't know if your personalities are going to click. You don't know if...ANYTHING.

But the moment I met Kristen, I knew I had made a friend for life. So this week, I celebrate with her. Tomorrow, her amazing YA novel, ARTICLE 5 will be on sale. So go out! Buy it! Love it as I did!

United States Kristen Simmons says:

Me = crying. I love you Katie!

This song is one of my favorites. It had just come out when we moved to Louisville and I listened to it over and over on the drive. I found it again when we moved away. It so gives me courage.
