What's up people?
What I'm reading
Hmm. A few things. I finished Tides by Betsy Cornwell. Really nice. It centers around the myth of the selkie. Also reading an arc of Hexed by Michelle Krys and the Boneshaker by Kate Milford. All good stuff.
What I'm writing
Hmm, at the moment, I'm tinkering around with the second book we sold, tentatively titled the Mesmerist. I'm waiting for the characters to speak to me. They're being a little stubborn. It's a different world than Hoodoo, but still an historical novel. That's all I'm saying.
What inspires me right now
Other writers. I joined the Fearless Fifteeners, a group of debut authors with books coming out in 2015. It's a really wonderful and supportive group. I'm amazed by the commonalities we all share.
What else I've been up to
I'm actually watching Bates Motel on AMC. Corny and addictive. Also listening to the new Goldfrapp album. Do you know her?
I'm also waiting with itchy fingers for editorial notes from my editor. Wow. I said that.
I've also spent a number of obsessive hours playing around with different website platforms including Squarespace, Wordpress and Tumblr. I want to update my look, you know? I like the Tumblr themes but I'm not sure if I am one to reblog stuff. I'm not even really sure how it all works. So if you find something cool on Tumblr you reblog it on your Tumblr with a credit?
That's it for me. I hope the Muse shines Her light on you today.
