A lot of crazy things have happened in this time, from meeting up with all the Buzz girls (and Marley on a Stick) in Dallas, to giving a workshop to a crowded room (with Tina and Steph sadly missing), to sharing in the triumphs and tribulations that are a part of any writing career.
But mostly what happened was books. Lots and lots of books.
Sometimes, as writers, it's hard to remember the good things. Our writing lives are full of deadlines and reviews and copyedits and changing editors or agents or both. Of worrying if we'll ever get another contract. Of worrying if we'll be able to fulfill the contracts we have. Of late night Googling when you might find your first awesome review... or your first awful one.
When you're bombarded with those kinds of things, it's hard to think positive. So I'm going to do it for us. I'm going to put the last three years into a nice, neat little perspective.
In the three years since the Buzz girls first became, well, the Buzz girls we've produced 20 books. That's 20 books between the seven of us (past and present). And that doesn't even count the ones we have on the way (which is at least another half dozen).
Now that's something to be proud of.
Okay, now to be entered to win your choice of a copy of OH. MY. GODS. (paperback) or GODDESS BOOT CAMP (hardcover) tell me something you've done in the last three years that you're really proud of.
Oh. My. Gods. and Goddess Boot Camp (out now!)
