We thought it would be fun to have some of our Angels share their New Year’s resolutions. First up is Nicole Weaver. She is the author of the trilingual book, My Sister is My Best Friend.
My new year’s writing resolutions are to edit my middle-grade novel titled, There’s Nothing Wrong with being Smart and to start writing a woman’s novel titled, No Place to Belong. I recently took an eight-week YA class with Victoria Hanley, an award –winning author of teen fiction published in 10 languages. I learned so much from taking Victoria’s class. Each week during class, she critiqued 10 pages of my manuscript. Now, I need to take the time to re-write the manuscripts following her suggestions.
I plan to take a second class on writing woman’s fiction. I will be able to get No Place to Belong critiqued. It is a win-win situation for a new author.
Additionally, I need to make time to promote my newly released book My Sister is My Best Friend. I look forward to having a great 2012.
Nicole Weaver is a trilingual children’s author. She teaches high school French and Spanish.

Join GAP author Nancy Stewart as she tours the blogosphere from December 5th – 16th with Pump Up Your Book to promote her second Guardian Angel Publishing book, Sea Turtle Summer!
Bella and Britt think living by the beach is the coolest thing ever. When they discover a Loggerhead Sea Turtle laying her eggs in broad daylight, the girls go into action to help.
No one, though, seems to care about the nest. The beach is a busy place and is getting busier by the minute on such a beautiful summer day. What can they do? Who will help, and what do they learn about themselves?
As a bonus, Sea Turtle Summer contains kid appealing facts about sea turtles.
