My Brand New Blog!

It feels sooo good to be blogging again! 😀 Ta-Daaa! Welcome to my new little space on the web, IndiaHillWrites. It was designed by the SUPER talented Whitney Blake, and I could not be happier with this design! As some of you may already know, I’ve been blogging under TheReddBlogger for a few years now, but I knew that…

  • I’m hosting my FIRST 24-Hour readathon this Saturday! I thought this would be a fun way to catch up on our TBR (To Be Read) piles. The theme for this read-a-thon is Book Besties, so @thebookarcher and I will be doing our reading together! Will you join us? Even if you have to work, go to school, or sleep (because let’s face it, I’m definitely going to need a few hours to recharge) as long as you make reading the priority in your free time, you can definitely do it! I’d love if you tagged your bookish besties or shared this post to spread the word! The link to my video all about it is in my bio! 📚#booksandbighairathon
  • This was such a fun interview to do!! I’m talking about how reading builds empathy, what motivates me, why I chose to be a 3-name author, and so much more! Link in bio. Thanks @rachelmichellewrites for having me on your site! 🧡
  • Happy August!! So July was weird lol 🥴 I felt tested in one of my worst traits - indecision. I had to make a LOT of split second, important decisions and say some hard No’s. But, I’m looking ahead and I think they prepared me for a really great August. ✨ What are you looking forward to this month? P.S. I’m sharing my BookTube and Author Journey (thus far) on the newest video on my channel!! I talk about all of the decisions I’ve made (& jobs I’ve left) to make room for writing and reading books. Link in bio!! ❤️
  • Due to unforeseen circumstances, unfortunately I will not be able to attend Heck YA! book fest at @mainstreetbooksdavidson today. This is incredibly hard to announce, as I have been looking forward to connecting with so many authors and readers at this amazing festival! I feel disappointed, but I hope that there will be more opportunities to connect with readers in the Davidson area in the future. If so, you will be the first to know. Thank you so much for understanding. Again, this was incredibly difficult to announce. If you are attending Heck YA! Book Fest today, have a great time for me — as amazing as this bookstore is, it won’t be hard to do at all. 💙💙💙
  • Had a fun day of meetings and phone calls wearing my new piece of jewelry gifted to me by the @novelingshop! Can you tell I like gold? Lol 🤔😂✨ it says NOVELIST and I think it’s the perfect bookish accessory — I’ll be wearing it a lot! Also, the curls are back and doing their own thing. 🌀🌀🌀
  • I had the pleasure of writing one of the most honest things I’ve ever written for @popreader’s Her Story: Ladies In Literature series. The heroine I chose to write about was Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables. This book was life changing — for the first time, I saw a heroine who was equal parts introverted and sensitive + fiery with a sharp tongue 😂 Also, like me, Anne has an almost childlike wonderment and optimism that makes reading her story so easy, especially in stressful times. I feel like this essay is an introduction to who I am and what I want to accomplish with my writing. The link is the the first one in my bio! ❤️❤️
  • I’m so honored to announce that I will be the luncheon speaker for the North Carolina School Library Media Association Conference. What a blessing! I can’t wait to connect, create, and curate with all of you who will be there. 🥰📚 #ncslma
  • I’m in the latest issue of @lakenormancurrents talking about time management!! Which is so funny bc I’m easily distracted 😂 I’m talking about the techniques and materials I use to stay focused when it counts. I mention the @forest_app, my @simplified planner, and my @cultivatewhatmatters Powersheets, and my favorite pens ever - the @pilotpenusa Precise V5 pens. This was such a fun interview! You can read it at the link in my bio or if you’re local to Charlotte/Lake Norman area, you can pick up a copy in most grocery stores! 💙
