- Have you seen it? The fundraising initiative my buddy Kat Brauer and I have started?! It's called The Mighty Pens, and our goal is to use the passion of @nanowrimo to help others! . We want to raise at least $10,000 for the @malalafund, which champions the right for all girls to get an education. . Writers who sign up for #TheMightyPens will ask friends, family, colleagues, etc. to donate money when they hit specific word goals. Kind of like how runners will get each mile of a race sponsored, we’re just working with words instead! . Not only will this raise money for a great cause, but it will encourage writers (like me & Kat), to finish their dang books! . The more we write, the more we raise!! . Link in my bio! (Or for FB peeps, head here: themightypens.susandennard.com) . #charity #fundraising #giveback #nanowrimo #nanowrimo2017 #malalayousafzai #malalafund #malala #educationforall

- #PubForPR is going on RIGHT now! Bid on all sorts of amazing packages from authors, editors, agents, and beyond. . There's so much tragedy happening in the world, and it's on us to do all we can to help. Our fellow Americans down in Puerto Rico are still without power, food, or water. Let's show them we haven't forgotten them! . Link in my profile! Or head here: https://pubforpr.wordpress.com/2017/09/27/signed-books-and-swag-from-new-york-times-bestselling-author-susan-dennard/

- Last night at 1AM one year ago, I turned in the hardest book of my life. It was a rough, brutal ride compounded by the fact that I didn't feel I "deserved" to be stressed. . I was >1yr late because of *my* difficulties with the story. *I* had failed to perform to the appropriate standard. . And, hell, it was just a book. What right did I have to be so emotionally fucked up over it? . A year later, and I thought I'd be recovered. In many ways, I am so, so much healthier. But anxiety and depression don't just "go away." And if I thought I felt guilty over my stress last year, it's nothing to how I feel now, when there's no clear culprit to point to. . It's funny because just a few days ago, I was telling someone, "I'm on a good cycle right now! Doing really well! My depression and anxiety haven't bothered me in months!" But this morning I had to face the reality that that simply isn't true. . And, like, were these problems always there and I've just been ignoring them? Or did they simply bubble back to life in the last few days? . I have no idea and probably never will. Mental health problems don't exist in a rational space, and trying to apply logic often makes them worse. . We feel the way we feel, and that should be enough. Forgive yourself. . Forgive others, too, for you have no idea what they might be going through.

- The Sightwitch cover! Snag the book in stores on January 23, 2018. And swipe right to see some of the illustrations by Rhys Davies inside! . Set a year before Truthwitch, Sightwitch follows Ryber, the last Sightwitch Sister as she treks deep underground to rescue her missing best friend. While there, she encounters a young Nubrevnan named Kullen Ikray, who has no memory of who he is or how he wound up inside a mountain. . You know. Normal teenage stuff, like monsters, dying magic, and ghosts. . Told through Ryber’s journal entries and her sketches, as well as other supplementary materials (clippings from history books, other diaries, and songs because I ALWAYS WRITE TOO MANY SONGS), Sightwitch serves as a set up to Bloodwitch as well as an expansion of the Witchlands world. . I really hope you all will check it out because I'm wildly, wildly proud of this story. ☺️ . Edit: Because people are asking, as far as I know, Bloodwitch will be released January 2019. This was *not* my decision, but rather a business choice from inside my publisher. So please don't be angry with me, okay? πŸ™ˆ

- Guys, I tested for and got my next belt last night! Not gonna lie: it was really hard. I was *so* nervous that I was shaking. I kept screwing things up -- like, all the moves I do everyday without a problem. . But I guess my sensei saw beyond my mess-ups. πŸ™ˆ (At least I *nailed* my bo kata.) . This is my 8th belt in this style of karate. Only a few more to go before black...which of course, will take at least 2 more years. πŸ˜‚ But I'm not giving up!! πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ . To all my followers, especially the ladies: if you've never tried martial arts, now is the perfect time. NOTHING is more empowering than knowing you can defend yourself. Plus, it'll make any fight scenes you write that much better. πŸ˜‰
