My brand new short story is now live on Wattpad! It’s under 1,000 words and an alternate ending to Cinderella – and I’m not telling you any more than that. 🙂 Hope you enjoy it!
On Wednesday, September 27 at 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time, listen to my interview on CJRU 1280 AM’s All My Books, a wonderful bookclub show hosted by Jacky Tuinstra Harrison. We’ll be talking all about Locke and Keye, including inspirations, how etiquette and respect for authority of the Victorian era play into the book, the mantra the locksmiths repeat, and so much more, plus a live reading!

Remember that time I was a NaNoWriMo YouTube Guide? I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since then! I learned a lot of great lessons from being a YouTube Guide, and I’m sharing them in my latest guest blog post on Writing Belle’s website: http://www.writingbelle.com/2017/09/award-winning-author-christie-stratos.html.
There are some lessons you learn only by making mistakes, and there are some you stumble into. I hope you enjoy my post about setting unrealistic goals with good intentions, impacting others positively by accident, and honoring your accomplishments.
Thanks for reading!
