What I’ve been working on: Well, I finished working on THE MIRROR KING pass pages. I’ve officially turned in the last of my changes on the novel, and it’s going to circle around the HarperCollins proofreaders for any final adjustments. But . . . it’s done! I have a post about what a challenge this book has been, though I haven’t put it up yet. I’m so excited to see it’s become the book I always wanted it to be. . . . And I’m a little sad to see it out of my hands! But very excited for you guys to read it.
I’ve also been working on copyedits for the third and fourth OQ novella. They’re nearly all done, too! Just pass pages to go.
Lastly, I’ve been working on Cell Story — the code name for (what I hope will be) my next book. I’m really loving it. I had a wonderful conversation with my agent about the first part of the story and I’ve been going through to make it even stronger. I wish I could tell you more about this, but I’m always hesitant to talk about projects this early. But I will give you this hint: this project has WORLDBUILDING. I’m making an atlas for myself. Heh.
What I’ve been reading: Aside from THE MIRROR KING, which took up quite a lot of time, I did read a couple of books:
- ELUSION by Claudia Gabel and Cheryl Klam – A virtual reality world starts killing people in real life?? Yes!! I mean, sucks for the characters, but good for me to read about.
- FORGED by Erin Bowman – The third book in the TAKEN Trilogy. I adore Erin’s books, and this one was no exception.
What I’ve been watching: Hubs and I are still watching DEXTER, now in the last season. This has been such an interesting show!
What I’ve been yarning: A hat.
And since I’m gaining a niece soon, I’m crocheting a baby blanket. I don’t have a good picture of it yet, though. It’s still in progress.
What the ferrets have been up to: Oh, knotting.
What the Kippy has been up to: She found a butterfly outside her window. She wanted it, but . . . glass. Foiled again.
Other things you might be interested in: Well, I got my ARCs for THE MIRROR KING. Isn’t it beautiful sitting next to the ARCs of my other books?
And look how big it is!! These are both the ARCs of OQ and MK. That’s some size difference, huh? MK is 531 pages long.
