Write-a-Thon Team: Awkward Robots 2012

Writer Bio

Writing Style

Lately it seems that Lara's historical and fairy tale fiction has lost out to psychosexual horror. #sorrynotsorry

Writing Goal

This Write-A-Thon, Lara is REVISING. She has 17 chapters left to go, on the novel she was drafting last year (the perfume, sex, millennials, and murder book!) and she's trying to wrap 'em up! The back end of this thing is a little bit of a mess, so it needs the TLC. Once that (and the write-a-thon) are over, she's going to try to crank out a new short story for the Clarion Class of 2012's FINAL FUNDRAISING ANTHOLOGY! THE VIOLET VOLUME! For more information, check out

Fundraising Goal

Any amount donated to Lara's Write-A-Thon campaign will get you a free eBook of The Violet Volume. Alternatively, once the volume is published, it will be available for pay-what-you-will, with all proceeds benefitting the Clarion Foundation.

writing goal:
17 chapters written
