America’s Next Great Author: Yay or Nay?

This past weekend was the announcement of who was chosen to participate in the filming of the show’s pilot and it was nerve wracking to say the least. Full transparency, I checked the application status page multiple times a day. Like…double digits. But Saturday finally came and with it, the announcement! Drumroll please…. It’s aContinue reading “America’s Next Great Author: Yay or Nay?”

Another Year, Another Ren Fest

I celebrated my birthday (belated) this past Saturday. the 24th, at the Michigan Renaissance Festival in Holly, MI. I was fortunate enough to spend it with two of my favorite people, Sam and Amanda. Fun, faire, and food (in the form of turkey legs). What could be better? It rained on and off with anContinue reading “Another Year, Another Ren Fest”

Lights, Camera, Application Submitted!

Well I did it. I wrote a 10 pager of one of my many works in progress, I filmed (with my bestie’s help) an audition video, and I wrote a pitch and author bio. The deadline was this past Thursday and, in true Emma fashion, I just barely made it. I did my best toContinue reading “Lights, Camera, Application Submitted!”

32 and Thriving!

Yesterday marked my thirty-second trip around the sun. It’s been another eventful year to say the least. Losses and gains. Victories and failures. Loved and been heartbroken. Learning and growing. All in all, I’d say I’m living life to the fullest! I celebrated with friends and family and it was a lowkey affair full ofContinue reading “32 and Thriving!”

Emma’s First Book Signing: A Reflection

I’m not sure what I expected from an in-store book signing but, for a first time, it wasn’t terrible. In the three hours I was there I sold 10 books, three of which were purchased by bookstore employees. It was a learning experience and I had some great conversations with the store patrons who decidedContinue reading “Emma’s First Book Signing: A Reflection”

Take A Beat + Event!

Sorry for going AWOL for a bit. My new job has been occupying a good deal of my energy along with a new guy that shows promise and revising Seer. That being said, burnout is real and so this trip I took this past weekend was perfectly timed. My bestie Amanda’s family has a lakesideContinue reading “Take A Beat + Event!”

Space: The Final Frontier

Dang girl, is your phone’s camera equipped with the James Webb Space Telescope? Because your selfies are out of this world! Between the title of this week’s post and that Grade ‘A’ pick up line I start it with, if you didn’t know I was a nerd before you certainly should now. And I’m notContinue reading “Space: The Final Frontier”

New Beginnings

Last week I started a new job! After almost three years at the Rock Family of Companies it was time to move on. I am so so excited to explore this new role and its challenges. Because what is life without challenges to overcome? Am I going to say it’s perfect? No, because nothing isContinue reading “New Beginnings”

Think Happy Thoughts

Unprecedented. Once in a lifetime. First time in recorded history. These are all phrases that can and have been used to describe recent history. It’s easy to get bogged down by it all. It would be easy to give in to despair. I had a good cry Friday night when it all hit me likeContinue reading “Think Happy Thoughts”
