Hey guys! 2019 is shaping up to be a pretty big year for me. I’ll keep it short and sweet this week. Here are a few of my goals/plans: The biggest: Release The Secrets They Keep: Guardian Society: Book 1 Get my newsletter up and running. Connect with even more amazing writers and bloggers on Twitter. Continue work on my next project. The outline is started, but this one is a BIG undertaking.
Merry Christmas guys! As many of you know, this is my favourite time of year, and I can’t help but create another tag game for you all. (You know I love a good tag) This year, I’m changing gears slightly and focusing the questions on reading, instead of writing (Check out my tag from last year here). Answer these questions based on your favourite books, your current read, or any characters you’d like!
I was tagged by my friend Nancy in a fun tag involving searching for three specific words in my current novel. One of my favourite Twitter Hashtag games is #WIPWordSearch, so I am all for doing this tag! Check out Nancy’s post here. Rules: Find the words you’re given in your WIP. Then share the context containing the word. Next, tag people and give them 3 new words. The words Nancy gave me are: SILENCE, TIME, and LIGHT.
First up in my series of getting to know my Critique Partners (CP) is the CP who is furthest in my book, the wonderful Rowan Liddell! She and I met online about 6 months ago and I’m so grateful that we did. Rowan was one of the very first people to read my book baby and has been amazingly kind, insightful, and so SO funny with her feedback. Although Rowan and I write in different genres (she writes amazing high fantasy, and I write contemporary fiction) we connect on a personal level and appreciate each other’s writing.
Full Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for honest feedback. In fact, M.N. Seeley was adamant I not sugar coat my review :) First things first, this book is NOT my typical genre, but it’s a self-published book with an intriguing plot. As you may know, one of my goals this year is to support more self-published authors by reading more indie! This book is a literary suspense, heavy on the literary style!
