Hi, friends! I’ve been radio silent for the past few weeks dealing with an avalanche of deadlines and a tyranny of promotional events (including for the stellar A Tyranny of Petticoats anthology, in which I have a story)! So this weekly recap will actually be for the past few weeks. Mea culpa.
The Past Few Weeks In New Releases
The Past Few Weeks in Cover Reveals
(I know I missed a TON, so I apologize!)
These Past Few Weeks in Internet Reading
Moneyball for Book Publishing – Reader habits data and what it could mean for how books get produced down the line.
On writing a “middle-finger book” from Nova Ren Suma. I feel this deeply.
“I just don’t identify with the character” – an in-depth look at how editors and publishers perpetuate homogenous identities and experiences in children’s literature, and how they can create lasting and meaningful diversity.
These Past Few Weeks in Writing
(ie, why I’ve sucked at blogging lately)
Finished line edits on A Darkly Beating Heart! This was a mad, exhilarating sprint and I’m in such a better place now about this book.
Finished up a slew of freelance work.
Loads and loads of fun promotional events for A Tyranny of Petticoats!
Write some fun bonus material for a forthcoming promotional effort for The Witch Who Came In From the Cold. More information soon . . .
Great progress on Ghosts of Grimley, my first foray into middle grade.
I’ve finished the outline and I’m full steam ahead on my next YA project, which will also be my Camp NaNoWriMo draft for April.
…And finally, I’m writing a Valentin POV story as a gift for everyone who signs up for my newsletter on or before April 19th, to celebrate the paperback releases of Sekret and Skandal! (There’s loads of other goodies in the #SekretSkandal giveaway too, so don’t miss out!)
P.S.: If you’d like to keep up with me and all my wild writing pursuits, plus use a great project tracker for your own writing, join me on My Write Club!
