This past week on FYFA (and in my life):
Another busy week in the Hewitt household! I finished that edit of the book I’ve been working on. Keep your eyes peeled for Acceptance by Trish Beninato since I’ll probably be featuring it here on the blog at some point!
We also picked our daughter up from camp and dropped my youngest off for the bus for his camp. And, most exciting, our Japanese exchange student got here yesterday! We’re really excited to get to know him!
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog this past week:
- Do You Follow Authors You Haven’t Read? Let’s Discuss.

- Lucky in Love by Kasie West: Review, Giveaway & West’s Top Ten Addictions (with a Twist!) – Still time to win an advanced copy of the book!
