Flowers from my momma bc she was thinking of me and is rad. Even though I didn't talk to her today, she ALWAYS knows when I'm going through a Dark Night of the Creative Soul. (Thanks for that incredibly apt phrase, btw). Do all mom's have witchy ESP, I wonder?? πŸ˜™πŸ˜™πŸ˜™πŸŒΉπŸŒΉπŸŒΉπŸŒ·πŸŒ·πŸŒ·

So this is me and my lovely friend @shannanigans430. Shannon is one of the sweetest, most thoughtful and most hardworking people I know. She was an early reader of EMBER and she totally taught me how to use instagram. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
I usually restrict fund-raising activity to Twitter, but this one time, I wanted to post on here, too. Shannon is raising money for the national Parkinson Foundation, as her mother was diagnosed with Parkinson's a few years ago. Shannon's family was profoundly and irrevocably affected by the diagnosis. This fundraiser is her way of fighting back against a difficult and surprisingly widespread disease. If you're so inclined, you can help her out by clicking on the link in my profile and donating to Team Cindy. Thank you lovelies and I hope you don't mind that I posted here. ❀❀❀

Wheeeeeeee, the EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING movie is out today!!!! So excited to see this adaptation of a book I love. I've heard amazing things!!! Congratulations @nicolayoon--so very proud of you, lovely! #everythingeverything #nicolayoon

Many wonderful moments at the FLAME IN THE MIST launch, but one was getting to see the lovely @abibliophilesbkm and her awesome tattoo. "Shararya ar jalan" is Sadhese for "Spark and Burn". Thanks to Brittany and everyone else who came out to make it a great night.

I pulled out all the stops for this one, but would you expect any less? 😊😊 Happy, happy pub day to my soul sister @reneeahdieh and the incredible FLAME IN THE MIST!!!! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯🌫🌫🌫🌫🌫

Happiest Mother's Day to my wonderful Mama. Did you know she once scared off an unruly motel tenant--who was one foot taller and 100 pounds heavier--with a broom? Why? He was threatening her kids. God bless you, Mama, and thank you for teaching me to be brave, to laugh and to dream. ❀❀❀❀❀πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

Last night's plotting session, which lasted until 3 am. πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯
Want you lovelies to know that I'm working my tail off on this book. I want it to be worthy of Laia, Elias and Helene. And I want it to be worthy of you. ❀❀❀ ❀

Always loved #TheOutsiders, so felt like I had to do an honorary #bookstagram!!! This is one of my better ones, but took me forever to stage it right and I have major lighting issues which I have noooooo idea how to fix. Now I'm gonna drink that coke tho...

Hanging for brunch with awesome Grace Fong, aka @fictograph meant laughing a ton AND getting to see her create a stunning sketch of Elias Veturius right before my eyes. This is her interpretation of rugged TORCH Elias. I adore him--thoughtful, beautiful and the tiniest bit wicked. 😘😘😘
Check out Grace's art on her instagram!!! ❀❀❀

I got my favorite Tumblr question to date a while back and finally answered, in the form of a play featuring our trio. This is canon, folks. Scroll through screenshots to enjoy. A happy weekend to you all. #laiaofserra #eliasveturius #heleneaquilla #EmberQuartet

#tbt to my 2016 pre-launch solo trip to Yosemite National Park, which included a torturous but deeply satisfying hike to the top of Nevada Falls. You can see my horror at how many steps I had to climb. Oh, and having to wait 30 min for iodine water when I stupidly didn't bring enough bottled and had to drink from the river. And Tuolumne Meadows, the most beautiful place on earth. 🌳🌳
The trip was an experience I hope I will never forget. It restored my (at the time) very achy soul. I hope I can go back soon. Long live the National Parks--we are so lucky to have them.

In honor of @reneeahdieh forthcoming FLAME IN THE MIST, i I am giving a way a mega prize pack!!!! It includes a hard cover of the book, (not pictured,) chocolates, socks, jewelry, notebook, tea, candle, soap, and a cosmetics bag. Second place winner will get an ARC of FLAME! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯
To enter, like the post and tell me who your favorite badass heroine is in the comments before this Friday, May 5!!
P.S.: I'll be doing closeups of the prizes on Stories!!
