Audition for Cupcake Wars

I just had to share this video my mom and I made as an audition tape for Cupcake Wars, Season 8. My mom got a call from a Cupcake Wars casting associate about 2 weeks ago asking her to submit a video with her assistant for the show. Since we get along so well (most of the time), she decided if she was going to get chosen to go to L.A., she wanted take me, so here is our audition. We are a bit silly, but from what we gather they are looking for personality for the show. We are excited and really hope to be picked!

Local story on real estate broker Emily Moreland

Local story on real estate broker Emily Moreland

Here is a story I wrote last month for Community Impact Newspaper – Lake Travis/Westlake edition. This long-time real estate broker established her own real estate company in West Austin almost 30 years ago. I interviewed her at a home for sale in Westlake and learned a lot about why she went into real estate and how she grew her business to about 75 agents. She was a very lovely lady and gave off a sincere attitude as well as having a lot of wisdom. In addition to her business she also runs the family ranch, located near Waco. One of the reasons I love to write is meeting new people and learning and sharing their stories, so this article was successful by my standards!

Buy the book

Hey! I know many people missed the Kickstarter campaign, but still want to pre-order a book and CD. We are taking pre-orders for “Jump Little Cake Jump” at http://jumplittlecake.com/buy-the-book. We are finalizing everything now and expect the book to be back from the printer at the end of the summer. Hooray!

Update: Cupcake book and CD success!

I am super-excited to announce that, not only did we make our Kickstarter campaign, but we made a little bit more than the $7,500 goal. We’re now on our way to making a children’s book! It will have about 12 short songs to go along with it and narrations for each character. If you want to learn more, you can visit Jump Little Cake, Jump!

Here’s a children’s book I’ve been working on with my boyfriend, Antonio, and friend Lindsay! We are doing a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to print the book. So far we are 6% funded and have 42 days to raise the rest. Please download a chapter of the book and a song at http://noisetrade.com/jumplittlecake and then head over to http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1002202694/jump-little-cake-jump to pre-order a book.
