If I were creating a Done-it blog, this one would absolutely be on my list: Publish a book.
I’ve been creating stories in my head since I was a kid, but it was only around six years ago that I started writing seriously. I queried four different manuscripts over the course of those years, hoping an agent or publisher would love my story. Rejection after rejection, I kept up my faith (with help from other writers pulling me off the ledge). When I began writing THE HEARTBEAT HYPOTHESIS, I had a gut feeling that this book would be ‘the one’. This manuscript got accepted into a handful of writing contests, and I had tons of agent interest. Ultimately, I didn’t find an agent with this book. But after a year and a half of querying, I found Entangled Publishing and an editor who loved my writing! (And yes, I ran around the house, fist pumping and dancing when I received that email.)
Being able to hold my published book in my hands was one of the best moments of my life. So, publish a book? DONE-IT! 🙂

Lindsey has been writing since she was nine years old, when she discovered the awesomeness that is Harriet the Spy. Her books always include a romance, though sometimes there’s an added sci-fi or magical realism twist. She lives in Columbus, Ohio (where the weather is never quite right). Her BFA in Photography and Graphic Design has granted her a wide assortment of creative knowledge that serves as inspiration (and not much else). When she’s not crafting YA and NA stories, you’ll likely find her spending waaay too much time on Pinterest, playing a video game, singing show-tunes, or performing in a burlesque show—because she enjoys giving her introversion a worthy adversary. (Plus, it’s the closest to Broadway she’ll ever get.) Lindsey was a proud 2016 Pitch Wars Mentee and thoroughly adores being a part of the wonderful writing community. THE HEARTBEAT HYPOTHESIS is her debut novel.
Audra Madison simply wanted to walk in the shoes of Emily Cavanaugh, a free-spirited teenager who died too young. After all, Audra wasn’t supposed to be here.
Thanks to Emily, Audra has a second chance at life. She’s doing all the things that seemed impossible just two years ago: Go to college. Date. Stargaze in the Rocky Mountains. Maybe get a tattoo. You know, live.
Jake Cavanaugh, a photographer with mysterious, brooding gray eyes, agrees to help chronicle her newfound experiences. She makes him laugh, one of the only people who can these days. As they delve into each other’s pasts – and secrets – the closer they become.
But she’s guarded and feels like she can’t trust anyone, including herself.
And he’s struggling with the fact that his beloved sister’s heart beats inside her.
