Procrastination Pro-Tips: New Shatter Me, A Raven Cycle Short Story, And More!

You guys, as a long-time works-from-homer, I'm currently trying this new thing where I have an office downtown while my house is being renovated and let me tell you there is not enough coffee in the world to make me happy about being downtown this early on a Friday morning. So while I sit here like a zombie in this hell they call "shared workspace" (if it's not shared with my dog, why bother?), Imma hit up some Internet goodness. Will you join me?

Rosemary Hallmark's photo About the Author: Rosemary lives in Little Rock, AR with her cute husband and even cuter dog. At 16, she plucked a copy of Sloppy Firsts off the "New Releases" shelf and hasn't stopped reading YA since. (She's still got a soft spot for the swoony, contemporary stuff.) A former magazine editor, she is now a freelance writer, graphic designer, art director and photo stylist. The rest of her time is spent drinking cocktails, renovating her house and laughing at her husband's ridiculous Pretty Little Liars theories.
