Now

What I’m working on right now

Have a nosey at my current shenanigans…

  • Immisceo: Taken  is out now in ebook and paperback on Amazon. This is the first book in a new fantasy series  and I had so much fun writing it. (I’m a little bit in love with Nate — which is surely a bit weird on multiple levels, given that he’s my creation but ah, well.)

 

  • I’m currently drafting the second book in the series, Immisceo: Undone . The rate at which I’m currently writing is so slow that the Christmas tree will likely be out before this next book is. But it IS underway and I’m clinging to that fact like a desperate woman. 

 

  • I’ve begun brainstorming for two new standalone books. I’m actually so excited about these that I’m finding it hard to keep my head in the game for my current project. The two new books are also fantasy; the first is a mermaid/siren/pirate combo and the second will have lots of phoenix magic. Will be posting more about that soon.

 

  • I’ve gotten a lot of reading done this month. I read the Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo, A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas, and The Scarlet Thread by Derek Murphy. I’ll be posting reviews on these soon so check them out  here . The last two are both first books-in-series and I’m hoping to continue them all as soon as I can find a deeper pocket to dig into. 🙂 

 

  • Lastly, on the list of Things I’ve Been Doing… PROCRASTINATION. Yup. I got a fair bit of that done, too. It was so damn worth it though and I’ll tell you why in three words: Horizon Zero Dawn. If that means nothing to you, then you’re probably not a gamer. If you are, I highly recommend this PS4 action/adventure/sci-fi roleplay released in March. It has so much story and depth and beauty that I almost loathed the real world a little when I had to leave the game world behind.

Best Fantasy Books (probably, ever.)

Surprise! It's NOT an ode to Queen. It's another flaming list. I've said it a couple hundred times before and I'll say it a couple thousand times more: I love a good list. But you know what I love even more than lists? Books. I can't get enough of them ...

A Letter to My Younger Self

Hello, Past Me. It's hard, isn't it? Life. Growing up. Discovering so many versions of yourself that you cannot fathom who you actually are. So you took the easy route and have begun to reflect what you believe people want to see in you but these versions conflict with one ...

Strong Female Characters — 8 Characters Who Define Strength

Strong female characters are everywhere these days. Right? Perhaps. The Damsel in Distress has certainly screamed her last plea for help, and we hear a lot about Kick-Ass Females in both book and movie culture. But it seems to me that we all have a slightly different idea of what ...
