Today we celebrate winners of my first ever blog contest and birthdays of very special people in my life. First, the winners: Elana Johnson – A random win for simply posting. Heather – An easy win since she was the only one who posted a link. =) Congratulations! Elana and Heather, please email me at kristie(at)kristiecook(dot)com. I need to know your prize choice, an email address and a shipping address. Next time we’ll have more participants (geez, I hope so!).

It’s also my middle son’s … Continue reading

Well, earth-shattering in my world anyway. I’ve made two decisions this past week that completely change my writing life. And I feel really good about both of them. I’ve been contemplating both for some time and I came to their realizations within a few hours of each other. Coincidence? I think not. I believe that they work together to finally launch my stories into the world. I’m excited and scared at the same time…excited because my stories will go beyond a tight circle of friends and into the world and scared because of the risks and the potential changes to … Continue reading

Thanks to Mireyah Wolfe at Crimson Ink, Fight Scene Blog Fest is in full swing, with almost 40 bloggers participating. I’ve checked out a few and there are many talented writers out there. Visit Crimson Ink for the full list and get a sneak peek into some great unpublished pieces. And here is mine from PURPOSE… (Note: Tristan and Seth are the same person…and that’s all I’m gonna say! *evilgrin*)(Warning: Rated PG-13…just sayin’) Edmund’s eyes darted back and forth between Tristan and Mom as he moved a few steps to our right and his creature scurried next to him.
