April Showers Can’t Get Me Down

(We’re all going to pretend I posted this yesterday like I was supposed to.)

This Month in Publishing

Angelborn-cover-300Angelborn is now available! Yay! It’s only $.99 for launch! Read more about it here.

This Month in Writing

Earthsinger book 2 is currently with my editor, praise gawd! The cover designer will be getting started in May, so expect a shiny cover reveal this summer! I still have at least 2 revisions left on the story, but it’s getting there. (Sidebar: At one point I had one of those progress meters on the site showing how close my works in progress were to completion. But that doesn’t really jive with my process which includes heavy revisions after an incoherent first draft and a semi-coherent second draft. I admire authors whose books come nearly perfectly formed the first or second time around, but mine seem to require major reconstructive surgery at least once before being ready for the world.)

This Month in Winning

Song of Blood & Stone won the IndieReCon Best Cover Award!

IRC-2015-Best-Book-Cover

(The image links on that page have been broken since it launched, but I’m hoping one day to be able to see the actual covers.) Once again, James at Bookfly Design gets mad props. I’m super excited about diving into the cover for book 2!

This Month in Awesome

I was included in an article on Fantasy Romance in the USA Today Happily Ever After blog along with Grace Draven (*swoon*), C.L. Wilson, Amy Raby and more! It was amazing to be alongside such fantastic authors and I thank author Veronica Scott for the opportunity.

This Month in Watching

It was all about Daredevil on Netflix, y’all! I’ve been a fan of Charlie Cox since Stardust and the show was great. Extremely and grotesquely violent in the way I don’t like (I’m more a fan of the over the top, unrealistic violence of say The Expendables, rather than the gritty version on display here), but I enjoyed the show. The characters annoyed the snot out of me, but no spoilers. Hit me up if you want to hear my rant.

This Month in Reading

I took a break from the metric crap-ton of New Adult books I’ve been binging and finally checked out something that had been on my Netgalley shelf for months. I’m not often up for urban fantasy (I want my HEAs darn it!) but I really enjoyed Nicole Peeler’s Jinn and Juice. I have a jinni story percolating in the Angelborn universe (which btw is part of the Earthsinger multiverse, but that’s a story for another day) so I’m always on the lookout for another one.

This Month in Fur
2015-04-03-14.03.07 Sabyl2_030212
Sterlyng remains the boss and life is good as he chills on my backpack. #TBT of Sabyl from a few years ago. Her multicolored eyes look super freaky here.

So that was my month. I also had a birthday, ended my gym vacation (sort of) and totally forgot about Earth Day!

How was your April? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I’m also about two drafts away from a completed manuscript. It takes me a LOOONG time, from idea to plotting to first draft to final copy? Seems like forever. That Angelborn cover is everything. Sounds like you had an amazing April.

    1. Thanks, Quanie! I’m trying to speed up my process without sacrificing anything, but as long as I’m finishing things, I feel good 🙂
