Hi guys — I’m stopping in for a quick update!
I’ve reached the final stages of editing before my agent and I go on submissions. Phew — it’s been a long run (and I’ve loved every minute of it). Our goal is to hopefully be on submissions sometime in the next few months (though sometimes life gets in the way, and things could delay us a bit longer, but we’re hoping for sooner than later). I couldn’t be happier with this story, and I truly hope you guys will get to read it one day (again, hopefully sooner than later)! We are currently brainstorming titles and making a few final tweaks before calling it done! I am SO incredibly excited, and I hope to have more news to share in the coming weeks/months.
While I was waiting to hear back from our readers, I had some free time on my hands, and so I got back into reading. The last book I finished was ALPHABET OF THORN by Patricia A. McKillip, and… Oh-em-gee, if you guys haven’t read this book, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? It was everything I’ve ever wanted in a fantasy book, and I became as entranced with it as Nepenthe did with the tales of Axis and Kane. In an effort to avoid spoilers, this is all I will say about the stunning and intricate storyline, but if you’re looking for a great fantasy novel to lose yourself in, I 100% recommend ALPHABET OF THORN.
Now, onto music. As I was preparing to dive back into these revisions, I was on the hunt for new tunes that would inspire/motivate me. I thought I would share a couple of the songs that really stuck with me.
- Audiomachine – Eternal Flame
I absolutely LOVE this one. It’s full of emotion, and it just keeps building and building! *swoons*
2. The Wolf and the Moon – BrunuhVille
…I have NO words to describe how much I adore this piece. There’s a character in my novel named Nocturne (hopefully you guys can meet her one day soon). She has a significant connection with wolves, so as soon as I heard this song, I instantly purchased it, and I have been listening to it non-stop while writing her scenes. Nocturne and the journey she goes through mean so much to me, and I can’t wait until I can talk about her with you all.
Anyway, I’m SUPER busy making these final changes to my manuscript, so that’s all for today! I’m hoping you guys will get to hear more about my story in the not-so-distant future :-). Wishing you all a wonderful week.
Thanks for reading!
