I hope all is well for you! I’m jumping on here to show off this AMAZING portrait of me and my author friends. We’re long-distance pals but surprisingly close emotionally despite that unfortunate fact, and one of us is an incredibly gifted illustrator who did these portraits of us just because! She’s actually going to send me a print of it and I’m going to hang it on my wall because it’s JUST SO GOOD, isn’t it?!?!
Basically, these guys are pretty much the ones that pick me up by my bootstraps when I’m feeling overwhelmed or just generally exhausted with post-grad life anxieties. I love them more than words can express and thank God for them continuously. The thing about this author gig, is that it’s pretty solitary. Unless you have a support group, it’s near impossible to stay focused and keep a healthy mindset. That’s why I’m convinced that I wouldn’t be continuing to pursue publishing if I didn’t have other people my age to talk to who are pursuing the same thing.
Follow the artist, Syreeta @aquarius.art or @author.queen on Instagram to see more of her stellar work! She also has a really great fantasy book available on Amazon now: Mystactral. Totally check it out if you haven’t already!
And if you didn’t know, I’m on Instagram as @angelinasingerauthor – and you can follow my other pals Joel and Ife too! Joel is @j.s.spaulding and Ife is @ife.disu – I highly recommend their writing as well.
ALSO, I want to know: Have you gotten a chance to listen to The Sorting Room on audio yet?!?! It’s book one of my dystopian scifi fantasy trilogy, The Upperworld Series, and you can find it on Amazon HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Sorting-Room-Upperworld-Book/dp/B07V82DX7D/ref=pd_ybh_a_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=EY71CD1B2PY2W9DZH0DS I would LOVE to hear what you think of it, because this was my first ever audiobook and I found a really amazing voice actress who just totally NAILED so much of my characters! Am I allowed to fangirl over my own voice actress? Because yeah, she just did a stupidly good job. Feel free to share your responses to it in the comments below or better yet, leave an Amazon and Goodreads review!
