The Truth's Out

christy has hinted. I'm here to broadcast the truth.

erica and christy are co-writing a book. does it mean erica and christy are co-writing a book that will go on to get an agent, be published, have wonderous reviews, be made into a movie with the next big stars in it, and earn them millions upon millions of dollars?

yes, yes it does.

Okay, fine. I miiiiiightttt exaggerate a bit.Okay, a lot. BUT - we are sending each other chapters and finding it to be a fun way to learn a new voice, a new style of writing, and how to work under a deadline. (trust me, christy seems all nice, but when she wants you to send her the next chapter - WATCH OUT!)

Anyway, want some teasers? You know you do. Here you go (given in totally random order with no explanation other than last week's fun 'cross between The Lake House and Labyrinth clue!) (and no, you don't get to know who wrote what. but yes, guess in the comments!) (also, these are completely unedited, fyi):

She didn’t have a lot of functioning brain cells, but she definitely had nerve.

I could barely simmer down enough to go home.

By then, it's back to normal. New normal. 

I also had no idea why he was wearing a miner light.

If I ever got around to writing the comic book of this particular part of my life, I'd never admit I ended up here in a t-shirt and a towel.

I screamed and shouted, “Make it stop!”

I walked toward the next house, hoping for some sketching pencils, shorts that fit, and a jar of peanut butter.

This was no time to dwell on his intentionally messy-looking handsomeness.


Thanks for visiting, friends! Happy February!


  1. Wow! I love that you all are doing this. My CLP Lucy and I are about to start on a collab. Can't wait to hear all your hints on how not to kill each other:)

  2. I totally believe that's exactly what will happen. You ladies are made of awesome sauce and putting you together is bound to be fantastic! Love the teasers!

  3. HA! This is amazing news! I bet that book is going to ROCK! I bet this is a challenge, working on one book w/ 2 writers who don't live near! Good luck guys, it will own!

  4. Oooh, I love them all. Must read more!!

  5. I must say, I'm curious as to why this person is hoping for sketching pencils, shorts that fit, and a jar of peanut butter. Sounds like a very weird art project, but hey, whatever makes your world go round! I've always wanted to co-write a novel. Lucky you guys!

  6. If I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be the last one. It feels like something I would say :). Good luck with the co-writing!

  7. Thanks everyone! And Mary, that is a random three things to be looking for, but trust me, it makes sense when you read the whole thing. er, it makes sense if you're the person who wrote it. . .

  8. Congratultions!!! On to bestsellerdom an even if not... you'll have the most fun EVAR!

  9. Just a brains up for ERICA and CHRISTY that you both are up to coordinator in Sept. If you can't do it, please let me know on this thread!

  10. This sounds totes awesome :D Good luck!!! :D

  11. Welcome to the world of co-authoring. It is a blast!

  12. Oh, what an interesting exercise. I've only written humorous things with people, but I think that practice of syncing your voices is probably good for both of yours, too. And working with deadlines is good practice, too.

  13. Awesome guys! You'll have lots of fun, and learn something about each other along the way, I bet!
