Hello, Winter

Dear Blizzard,

Please note that I do not appreciate having my view obliterated by Jack Frost’s boogers. Please send the Heat Miser, ASAP.

Thank you,

The new Beauty & the Beast series from Sarah Maas . . . OMG. It’s the size of a Nynex, but I read it cover to cover in a DAY. Stayed up to 3am. SOOOOOO good. The second book (A Court of Mist and Fury) was even better than the first.

#IGAuthorLifeJan – Day 24 Todays Today List

I write a series of Urban Fantasy books that have been compared to City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (and I admit, I haven’t read them). The final book, Last Light, is due out this year and quite honestly, the series is loaded with new supernatural characters, a million twists and reveals, and a TON of pages.

I’ve been writing this series since 2012, and this final book, Last Light, will be a doozy, pulling together every small breadcrumb I’ve scattered along the way. Because of this, I had to print part of the manuscript (the first 60k) and read through it from page 1 to page 300. So that was my To Do List for today: read my own craziness.

And now my brain hurts . . . how do my fans DO this???

#IGAuthorLifeJan – Day 21 Author Crush

THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE. I have a crush on so many, MANY authors, so I call today’s challenge “BS!” but, whatever. These are some of my all-time favorite authors thanks to the brilliant books they write. Eva Darrow’s for The Awesome, Sarah Maas for Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Roses series, AC Gaughen for Scarlet series, Jennifer Armentrout for the Lux series, Renee Ahdieh for The Wrath and the Dawn, Leigh Bardugo for the Shadow and Bone series, and Veronica Rossi for the Never Sky seriesigauthorlife-day-21

#IGAuthorLifeJan – Day 20 Currently Reading

I always have books piled on my nightstand and I’m usually in the processing of reading at least one all the time. I just finished Marissa Meyer’s Cinder, which I did enjoy, and I ordered the next book, Scarlet (I’m waiting for it to arrive at Titcombs Bookshop). I also got the complete End of Days series from the dog for Christmas. Yes – from the dog. Anyway, I’ve heard great things about the series, so I’m starting the first book, Angelfall, tonight. What are YOU reading?

#IGAuthorLifeJan – Day 19 Favorite Review

This was tough for me to choose, but I always loved the review I got from Jackie at She Reads She Blogs. While we authors can get our butts kicked from time to time with reviews, the really great ones make up for the bad ones ten times over :)

#IGAuthorLifeJan – Day 18 Writing Tips

#IGAuthorLifeJan – Day 18 Writing Tips

This #writertip is so simple, yet often overlooked. If you want to be a writer, you MUST be a reader. We learn our craft from other writers – how to turn a phrase, compose a fight scene, build rich characters – everything. When I teach a writing class, I’ll ask participants if they read novels, and more often than not, these new writers will confess they don’t read that often. Reading is our form of TRAINING – our workout. If you don’t want to read, then don’t be a writer.
