All is quiet on the news front this week. I’m just waiting to see if my publisher requires any major revisions on Hunted Fate and to learn the release date. I’ll share as soon as I know! In the meantime, I’m cleaning out junk in preparation for painting the house, watching a lot of April the Giraffe (is she ever going to have her calf?), and making myself blind with hundreds of paint samples.
I’m also trying to work on a new novel, separate from the Fate projects, but the story just isn’t coming together. I’ve got a solid idea, but I can’t see how it ends. I’m the sort of writer who has to know the end before I can even begin. Heck, I might not know anything other than the ending. (That was the case with Broken Fate. I saw the ending and worked backward. Weird, I know.) But with this project I can’t yet see the end. So I just keep thinking. And watching that darn giraffe.
The Library Reading List
The Regional Office is Under Attack, by Manuel Gonzales. This book just sounds so cool. An office full of female assassins who root out evil plots is attacked. From the inside. The book spans the day of the attack and tells the stories of one of the attackers and one of the defenders. What is this place? Why does it exist? What kind of powers do these women have? I don’t know, but I want to find out.
Wintersong, by S. Jae-Jones. In essence, this is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, only with a goblin king instead of a beast, and an innkeeper’s daughter who goes to save her sister from said goblin king. There have been a lot of titles published lately with the intent of cashing in on a tie-in with the live action Disney movie. So far, I haven’t seen any that are as good as the original, but as it’s one of my favorite fairy tales, I’m willing to keep trying.
