I've got a podcast

So, I've decided to start a weekly or bi-weekly podcast in July or August.

No, I'm not going to be like the above Shock Jock. :)


It'll be a simple podcast about freelance writing, querying, agents, editors, books and other things in the middle grade and YA writing world. I've been thinking about doing it for a long time, but I finally took the plunge yesterday and set up my show site. The show can also be used for LIVE radio and I've been given a NYC number and up to 5 people at once can call in and chat. That sounds so fun! I'm tossing around the idea of having a couple of authors call in for a LIVE chat, but we'll see how it goes. I've got a book on podcasting and I'm trying to learn everything I need to before it gets started so the podcast is as professional as possible.

So, you'll "hear" from me this summer! Here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/JessicaBurkhart

Happy book birthday to LIFE INSIDE MY MIND!

I'm sooo excited, guys! My first ever anthology is out! 



Here's a bit about it: 

Your favorite YA authors including Ellen Hopkins, Maureen Johnson, and more recount their own experiences with mental illness in this raw, real, and powerful collection of essays that explores everything from ADD to PTSD.

Have you ever felt like you just couldn’t get out of bed? Not the occasional morning, but every day? Do you find yourself listening to a voice in your head that says “you’re not good enough,” “not good looking enough,” “not thin enough,” or “not smart enough”? Have you ever found yourself unable to do homework or pay attention in class unless everything is “just so” on your desk? Everyone has had days like that, but what if you have them every day?

You’re not alone. Millions of people are going through similar things. However issues around mental health still tend to be treated as something shrouded in shame or discussed in whispers. It’s easier to have a broken bone—something tangib…

New year, new look

Helloooo, Harts! :)

Thought it was time for a blog overhaul. I'm still tweaking a few things, but this is a start! How's your January going so far?

I'm SUPER excited that it's the *NINE* year anniversary of TAKE THE REINS' publication date on January 27. I CANNOT BELIEVE IT WAS PUBBED IN 2009! 😱

What a journey so far. Wow. I'm just so, so grateful for all of my readers who have stuck by me this whole time. 💓💓💓

More to come, but! There's a giveaway over on my Insta. Go follow me and check it out (JessAshley87)

Mental health during Camp NaNoWriMo

I saw this thread on the Camp NaNoWriMo forum and thought I'd share my response here. Campers were weighing in with their tips and tricks for maintaining good mental health during April's camp.  What disorder(s) I have: Generalized anxiety disorder and depression.  My tips/tricks: * Disney music! This always gets me in a good mood. Plus, often easy to listen to while writing.  * Green tea. Another mood booster.  * Essential oils. Mostly citrus for mood. Sometimes minty varieties for energy.  * Pokemon Go. No one plays anymore right? Well, Team Instinct here and I do. :) It gets me out and walking.
