OMG: I’m a Published Excerptist!

I already know what you’re thinking…Joslyn, what the heck is an exerpist? Well friends, let me tell you. First I must admit that yes, I did essentially just make that word up, but in this context I think it makes sense…or least I’m telling myself that it does. By definition, an excerpt is:  a passage or segment taken from a longer work, such as a literary or musical composition, a document, or a film. In my strange thought process, excerptist would qualify as someone who writes an excerpt. Right?

That said (0r writtern actually), I am so unbelievable excited to officially announce that I’m a published excerptist! It’s always been, and continues to be, a big goal/dream/aspiration of mine to write on a professional level and ultimately be published. I may not have scored my own book deal yet, but I am included in the latest book from a New York Times Best Selling author, who also just so happens to be an alum of one of my all-time favorite shows, The Wonder Years. Winnie is my girl!

Without further ado, I present to you a few fun pictures of Danica McKeller’s latest book and my 2 pages of glory in HOT X: Algebra Exposed. I also want to give a shout out to Danica. I respect her in so many ways, but more than anything I appreciate how she is empowering young women by illustrating how cool it is to invest in intelligence. I hope that one day I can try to do the same.

SIDENOTE: Let me know if any of you guys have the book and feel free to share pictures or comments here on my blog or on my official Facebook page.

Thanks for reading – love you all, mean it!

PS: Big shout-out to on the photo credit to WPD and his roommate who has the most gorgeous man-hands ever. Also big thanks to Kimberlee West of the Boudoir Divas for taking the picture inside the book and my girl DOT for hooking me up with this project in the first place. Love you all!

    Way to go Joslyn, Ima have to take a peek at the book next time I am at Borders. Danica’s a smart cookie and it’s an awesome thing for her to have picked you to be in her book.

    What kind of writing are you looking to get into?
