Sorry for the horrible joke, but I start thinking in puns when I get nervous. ;)
Roni's Beta Club is back this Thursday with my own excerpt from STRINGS. I'm excited to see what she thinks, but as always, the more the merrier, lol!
This is the novel whose MC I referenced in yesterday's post, Mara. She can be hard to like, and that's putting it mildly. I'm hoping readers will see her more like a train wreck or some other accident they're unable to look away from. ;) Roni was sweet enough to dig up the above photo of a vardo like the one Mara lives in, which I hope will help clear up some initial confusion as to setting. She's awesome.
Roni's Beta Club has introduced me to a number of bloggers I'd never seen around before, and--of course--also introduced me to their characters. It's been really fun so far, reading the work of others and thinking critically about it in a way that makes me think about my own work, so I hope others are enjoying it as much as I am.
Julie Dao tagged me earlier this week with a meme, so stay tuned for that tomorrow!
“All writers are vain, selfish and lazy, and at the very bottom of their motives lies a mystery. Writing a book is a long, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.” ~George Orwell
I'm a YA writer who delves into urban fantasy, paranormal and romance, and who loves reading good books almost as much as writing them.
When not writing—or working—I enjoy daydreaming, drinking tea, and walking in cemeteries. I used to spend the rest of my time checking my inbox for manuscript requests, but am now proudly represented by Rosemary Stimola, of Stimola Literary Studio.
