Groups

I am a writer-type person who does writer-type things. But I also do artist-type things on the side. I like to share both my writer-type things and my artist-type things with the world, which is why I am here!

Most of my art will probably be about my characters. Sometimes it may be about other people's characters. But it'll all go here. (You know. What of it I can actually show you, because I wouldn't want to spoil anyone.)

I blog about writing and the publishing world at www.francescazappia.com, and you can find me on Twitter ChessieZappia. Don't be afraid to say hi!

I'm sure you get this a lot, but I ADORE Made You Up... I can't express how much I love your characters, the plot, everything! When I found out you were an artist, too, my mind was blown! Your drawings are so cute and amazing <3 tbh just finding your deviantART account made my day. So I just wanted to drop by and say you are super amazing !! Thanks for writing such an awesome book <3

I also just read Made You Up, and spent the rest of the night trying to convince myself that my little brother is NOT a hallucination... It touched me in ways I have never felt before, and scared me so much! This book is amazing, thank you for sharing it with me and so many others!

I finished reading your book "made you up" and loved every minute of it!! The character development was amazing and the plot twists had me gasping. It got to a point where I had to put the book down and just think about it for a while. The quotes were amazing, (my personal favorite is "Being smart isn't judged on how much you know, but the capacity to learn") I recommen red the book and let my friend read it and she thought the same I did. In the end I loved the characters and their little quirks. If you wrote another book I'd be so excited to buy it and read it. Keep up the good work, and have a nice day!!! 😁💕
