What's Up Wednesday -- Prophecy of the Six is HERE!

What's Up Wednesday is a blog hop created by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk as a way for writers to connect with other writers. You can join by using the link on their website.

What I'm Reading

If you look up at the top of this blog, you'll see a page called "Books Read In 2015". I have seen this on several blogs from WUW, and I'm hoping I can keep it up to date. It's been a busy reading year for me so far. I've already read To All the Boys I've Loved Before and A Thousand Pieces of You. They were both excellent. Since the last time I posted, I have also read Since You've Been Gone, which was also a great book. I got all three books from the Superlative Books Blog Hop that happened in December. If I can keep my Books Read in 2015 up to date, I plan to participate in that next year. It's good stuff.

What I've Been Writing

Little scraps of Lost Magic. I realized that I need to do some actual research before I can get too far into the opening scenes of the book. I know too little about life for the modern day Roma to write about them, and even though they are just a small part of the overall book, it's still important to get it right. Or I'm stalling. One of the two.

(Please excuse the following screams of joy)
YESTERDAY, PROPHECY OF THE SIX WAS PUBLISHED! Remember how you spent months and months ready "Still editing my wip" every single week???? Well, I'll never say that about PoTS ever, ever again. It's out there. Today and tomorrow, book one in the series is FREE ON AMAZON!  

Here's a link to the newest book, Prophecy of the Six as well. 


What Works For Me

Being busy. If, heaven forbid, I should slow all the way to a stop, getting started again is brutal. But as long as I keep writing, even if it is just a little, those big productive days eventually follow.

What Else Is New

Did I mention that I published a book yesterday?? It's my third published book. Unlike the others, it didn't come out with a lot of fanfare. Hopefully there will eventually be some interviews and parties. But this time it was just me, my co-authors and my lovely neighbors who surprised me with cake and sparkling cider. A lot of my WUW friends helped with the cover reveal, and I'm so grateful, because that's all the marketing we've really had time for.



  1. Congratulations on getting your book published! I hope you have great sales for the book, and that the readers will love it. Also, good luck with your writing this week.

    My WuW post.

  2. Congratulations on your release! :)

  3. Congratulations! That is really something to be proud of!

  4. I picked A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU for one of my favourite covers of 2014, but I still haven't read it yet. You're the second person today to say you liked it, so yay! Congrats on the book release! :-)

  5. Congratulations on your release. How exciiiiting :D

    Happy New Year!

  6. Congratulations on your new release! :) Have a great week!

  7. Yay! Congratulations on your book release! Wishing you lots of success with it!

    A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU was under the tree for me this Christmas, and I'm really looking forward to reading it. Glad to hear you enjoyed it. That makes me even more excited to crack it open soon!

    I hear you on not letting yourself stop writing. I'm the same way. Breaks terrify me because it's always grueling to build up any kind of momentum again. Have a super week! :)

  8. Happy Book Birthday!!! Woohoo!!! Congratulations :)

  9. Congrats on the release!!! That's wonderful. *loads confetti cannon with chocolate frogs and liquor*

    And research doesn't count as procrastination...painting your toenails & eating gummi bears counts as procrastination. Research -equals- useful. :)

    Hope you have a fantastic week!

  10. Congrats on your new release!
    I have to agree that staying busy is probably the best idea - I came to a full stop writing-wise during the holidays and... OH. MY. GOODNESS. It is soooo hard to get going again!
    Have a great week!
