Since Alice has made her debut in the world, I have learned many things. Some lessons have not been the best experiences of my life (case in point: #CSLewisCarroll), but others have been incredibly exciting.
One such lesson was the discovery that I might just have a knack for world building. I found out when my dear friend Rebecca Cahill asked me to write a guest post for her blog, The Page Unbound. I was more than happy to oblige, until she told me the topic she’d like me to write about: World Building.

I don’t know about you, but May was an ABSOLUTE whirlwind for me! And to be honest, I’m not sure that June is going to slow down much at all. But, if you know me, you’ll know that as much as I may whine about it, being busy is generally how I roll. Continue reading Author Radar: Amanda Gernentz Hanson
I don’t like to DNF books. I don’t know what it is, but there is something deep inside my soul that aches at the idea of leaving a book started unfinished. In fact, in my long relationship with books there are less than a handful that I can even claim as DNF’s.
This book justifies every single reason for that decision.

Recently I was approached by the fabulous Raimey Gallant about a Blog Hop idea she had to help build up other authors. Since I had so much fun participating in her 2016 Nano Blog Hop, I jumped at the opportunity to join in!
So, from now until the end of the year, I will be working alongside a roster of other rocking authors to help provide content centering on building a strong author platform. Each month I’ll be adding another ‘tool’ for you to add to your own personal Author Kit, using things I’ve learned from building my own platform. I’m excited to share some of the tips and tricks I’ve picked up along the way, and to see what the other authors have to share as well! (For a full roster of #AuthorToolboxBlogHop participants click HERE)
Are you ready? Let’s go!

So, as you may or may not know, I was recently asked to join the ranks of the authors being featured in the 2017 #SerendipiTea Tour, a book blog tour featuring sixteen debuting authors from 2017! Since that’s exactly Alice’s cup of tea (Mad Tea Party, anyone?), I was super stoked!
Even MORE recently, I was given the opportunity to HOST one of stops on the tour, and when I heard who the author was, I literally jumped at the chance. Not only is she an incredible writer, she also happens to be one of the COOLEST people I know!
Who is this femme fatale? None other than my very own Pen Name bestie, Miss Amanda Gernentz Hanson!

For those of you who don’t already know, yesterday was a HUGE day for Alice. Her cover was revealed to the world, with EXCELLENT reception.
Honestly, I don’t know how it could have gone any other way. My editor outdid herself with the cover design. The color scheme is breathtaking and the attention to detail makes it an image that I could look at over and over again and never get bored.
