Updates on 2022/2023 Publications and Other Things

March 15, 2022 Nicole Evelina 0

When I started this blog, my intent was to trace the publication process of books and my experience as an author. I think I’ve accomplished that on the self-pub side, so now as my first traditionally published books head to press, I want to bring you along on that journey as well. Here’s what is […]

2022 Goals and Word of the Year: Enticing

January 3, 2022 Nicole Evelina 0

2021 was my busiest year yet on purpose, but I also discovered my limits. That’s why I want 2022 to be all about me–not in a selfish way, but in a self-care, finding balance kind of way. I really believe that we design our own lives and therefore I want to design a life I […]

Year in Review: 2021

Happy 2022 everyone! Sorry I’ve been so quiet, but I’ve been on two book deadlines. One was early in December for the League of Women Voters book and the other was yesterday for the Sex and the City (SATC) book. I stayed awake for 36 straight hours finishing it, but I finally got it turned […]

New Facebook and Instagram Accounts

September 19, 2021 Nicole Evelina 0

You may remember that a little over a month ago, my Facebook and Instagram accounts were suspended for no reason that I can guess.

How to Use the Tarot in Your Writing

July 7, 2021 Nicole Evelina 0

Two weeks ago at the Historical Novel Society conference, I participated in a brief lecture from my dear friend Kris Waldherr on how writers can use the tarot to help plan their books. It not only re-invigorated me in my study of tarot and inspired me to create my own deck, it reminded me I […]

International Domestic Workers Day

June 16, 2021 Nicole Evelina 0

In the 10 years I’ve been blogging (10 years today, actually!), I’ve never done two posts in one day because I don’t want to annoy you, my lovely readers. However, I am making an exception today because it is not only publication day for my new novella, Consequences, but also International Domestic Workers Day, which […]

March 30, 2021 Nicole Evelina 0

My friend and fellow historical fiction author, Stephanie Dray, has a new book out today! She calls The Women of Chateau Lafayette a seven-year labor of love. I know all about books that take years to come to fruition so I can’t wait to read this one. I’ve read her previous books, America’s First Daughter […]
