I resolve to be true to myself.

Accomplishments

Yesterday I finished proofing the print copy of Stranger Skies, made edits to the file, and sent the files off to the printer’s. I’m glad I actually sat myself down and proofed the thing. I was feeling a bit “BUT I’VE DONE IT SO MANY TIMES ALREADY” when I got it and didn’t want to proof it. Turns out there… Read more »

I do not feel any wiser. You are a LIAR, mother nature. A filthy, filthy liar.

As you may be able to guess from my poor attempt at a witty title for this post, I am currently dealing with wisdom teeth coming in and pushing out all my funny with blinding amounts of pain. I have basically been swigging whiskey and clove oil in a desperate attempt to bolster the work of the ibuprofen I am… Read more »

Blood, Gravy, and my Cill shift

      Comments Off on Blood, Gravy, and my Cill shift

It’s been an interesting week. By interesting I usually mean in the curse sense of the word, May you live in interesting times, etc etc etc life has been kind of sucky. But whatever. If you’re going to say anything about me or my mom, you have to admit we bounce back. Things break and we pick up the pieces… Read more »

Post-Partum Depression and Names

      Comments Off on Post-Partum Depression and Names

I finished The Jade Star of Athering on the 6th. And immediately went through post-partum depression. First time it’s happened after finishing a book. Third time’s the charm? I’m not really sure. I do know I’m still heavily invested in some of the characters in The Jade Star, and I have enough material on them to do two more books… Read more »

Mercury, You Are Drunk. Give Me Your Keys.

      2 Comments on Mercury, You Are Drunk. Give Me Your Keys.

Mercury does this thing about three times a year. Well, actually, it doesn’t really do anything; it just looks like it’s doing something. From Earth it looks like Mercury is moving backwards. They call it retrograde. And dammit if it doesn’t just fuck everything up. I  mean, yeah, sure, it’s just a planet and it’s probably not really affecting you,… Read more »

SFFSat January 26th: Thalaea learns about Saeas, Witch Goddess

Good morning! (Or evening, if you’re in my time zone.) Last week and the week before our ex-goddess character found her new True Name — Thalaea — and discovered she was falling for a mortal. This week, we see a conversation between Thalaea and Enendoa, the “wise woman” (ie, witch). Enendoa is teaching Thalaea about Saeas, Witch Goddess of Min…. Read more »

I just finished a novel, no big deal

      4 Comments on I just finished a novel, no big deal

You read that right. I just finished Stranger Skies, the NaNoWriMo novel I’ve been posting snippets from for SFFSat. First draft clocks in at just over 70,000 words. Definitely shorter than Bellica‘s ~250,000 words, but then Bellica was meant to be a standalone (ha ha) and Stranger Skies is going to be the first in what’s looking like at least… Read more »

SFFSat, January 19th: the magic of one’s True Name.

Last week, Silva found her new True Name: Thalaea. After asking Enendoa if she can take on the moniker, the ex-goddess discovers that finding her new True Name has some pleasant effects on her newly-mortal body. Three hearts beat the way they should; her bones were no longer so heavy. She was not cold any more; her body regulated its… Read more »

SFFSat, January 12th, 2013: Silva finds her new True Name

I’m finally doing this again! I started work on Stranger Skies again this week, and decided I should start posting snippets again — if only to keep myself motivated. (Joking. I’m motivated because the story is awesome.) In this snippet, Silva, our goddess-turned-mortal, has just finished reading a large tome at the behest of Enendoa, the local witch. The tome… Read more »

The Next Big Thing Author Blog Hop

      Comments Off on The Next Big Thing Author Blog Hop

KariAnn Ramadorai tagged me for this blog hop, and I figured it’d be a fun thing to do. She also said some very nice things about me in her blog post, which made me blush. Yes, I’m blushing. Shush. And it’s totally still Sunday. Because I haven’t slept yet. That’s how it works because shut up. What is the working… Read more »
