    Don’t Mind Me. I’m Just Creeping Along.

    Okay, so after going back and ripping up my previous draft of A Castle for Rowena, it looks like I’m back in the game. No journal entries this time around. I tried to test the waters before to see if changing the narrative format would help in jarring the brain cells and upping motivation levels, but no dice.

    I was able to rewrite the second chapter to establish my MC’s motivation for getting himself involved in a creepy-ass situation, and it’s holding its own. I got the third chapter written today, and it pretty much flowed as smoothly as I’d hoped despite the snail’s pace of my progress. It’s there, though, and I’m happy with it.

    So I’m definitely inching along, and though I’m not pleased with how glacial things are moving so far, I’m just happy something’s getting written. I’m determined to have a book published on October or November at the latest. And I was at first wondering if I should shift gears like I did when Eidolon gave up the ghost (no pun intended), and I ended up working on (and publishing) A Most Unearthly Rival instead.

    This time around, I was seriously considering setting Rowena aside and taking up The Haunted Inkwell. If I felt energized enough, I’d have gong back to writing two books concurrently the way I got Automata and Agnes of Haywood Hall done. Those were the days, man. And it seems like a lifetime ago when I was able to do that. Now it feels as though I’m just clawing my way from one point to the next, and it’s not a good feeling at all.

    At any rate, we’re still looking at an autumn release for A Castle for Rowena, and I’m really crossing my fingers that this new “adventure” will work out well. I don’t plan to sell any of my W.M. Oliver books for more than 99 cents each, so that’s really low risk for anyone who hasn’t tried my books in the past and are pretty leery about unknown authors.

    I’ll also be offering all of my long novellas in print format, so there’s that as well.

    I’m also going over my plans regarding Ghosts and Tea. I wanted to complete the series with five books, but I’m now wondering if four would be preferable. There’s enough material left to write for one more volume (The Haunted Inkwell), and beyond that, I can’t say.

    Freddy’s family drama can easily be sorted out in Book Four. Prue can also settle down with her garden finally locked against intruding ghosts. Brody can continue improving himself with extra help from Mr. Beverly. Freddy’s psychic troubles are already being gently handled by Felicity at the end of Book Three, so it’s a matter of continuing that thread until he’s able to take care of hauntings with more confidence and effectiveness. And Jonathan’s romance with Freddy can also be made fully secure in the next volume.

    So what comes after that? *crickets chirping* Yeah, I thought so. Whatever initial ideas I had for The House of Creeping Ghosts can be worked into The Haunted Inkwell since there wasn’t much there to begin with - just the germ of an idea.

    At any rate, yeah - everything’s up in the air for Book Five. Maybe I’ll be able to cook up more bizarre adventures for Prue and the gang, but I’m not going to push it if things don’t pan out. I’ve learned to accept the possible shorter length of a novel series before. I know I can do that with this one though it’s going to be a bummer saying goodbye to Hoary Plimpton after four books and not five.

    One other thing I’d like to get back into is writing books in longhand. It’s been really tough adjusting to my new thumb situation following last year’s surgery, and while I’m able to write tons of notes in block letters, I have a much harder time doing cursive in longer and more complex passages. I’ll continue to work on it, though, because typing directly on my laptop might be efficient, but it’s really hell on my neck and shoulders now that I’m way past my thirties.

    sometimes I peak into the fallout new vegas fandom and there always seems to be a lot of noise made there about the surposed unavoidable political regressivness of a bleak post-apocalypse setting, something that I think could be pretty easily proved false by reading (or watching the movie adaptation of) what is agrubly the fallout series' main inspiration, a boy and his dog by harlan ellison

    #fallout #im tagging this not to pick a fight but because i legitimately want to recommend it to fnv fans #great novella. very angry about white picket america. #very very bleak

    La Novella, Gabriella

    Alle nostre madri: senza di esse non saremmo state così… E noi, cosa siamo diventate noi? Le prime della classe, come Gabriella … di Bianca Sannino Mia madre avrebbe voluto buttarla via quella bambina, se avesse potuto farlo l’avrebbe fatto. L’avrebbe fatto come si fa con una bambola a cui si è spezzato un braccio o saltata via la testa. L’avesse fatto! Mi sarei risparmiata tanto dolore, tanta…

    my lit multi: novella-length biographies written in second person to really help the audience sink into the era and struggles that define my historical muses. my t//vc oc multi: three third-person paragraphs each with some backstory to explain how they ended up on the island where the action goes down, nothing more. my lesbian multi: one omniscient paragraph each giving a super vague overview and whether or not the character diverges from her canon depictions.

    so anyway considering all of the ocs and two of the lesbians are now going on the literature muse page of the multi, it’s. it’s wild throwing all of these together. i may disappear into the ether just trying to make all of the outliers novella-length. find me on discord or ims if u need me

    #seraphina and eugenie are just 'anyway eugenie is a butch and sera has daddy issues' #the ocs at least i can build upon extant lore into the novella but sera and eugenie... oof. #out of mist

    friends let me just say that I picked up the audiobook for Kai Ashante Wilson’s The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps and it’s so fucking good I’m shook

    #me back on my Anglophone SF/F agenda #the fact that you get 30% into this spear-and-sandal fantasy novella and suddenly the main character casually drops #'the exigencies of FTL travel' and a whole load of genetic technobabble #absolutely goddamn transcendent #hunxi book tag

    It took me 2 hours for a 338 paged book (Crushed, a Pretty Little Liars novel, by Sara Shepard)

    I think the curiosity I had for the series got spiked again because;

    Yes, I spent about $120 on books for school and personal pleasure

    qotd: “‘Life hasn’t always been easy without your father,’ Violet said, ‘but it has always been worth it.’” —Julia Quinn

    though i had already read all the second epilogues because they were included in the other bridgerton books, i was ultimately glad to have gotten my hands on this collection.

    FINALLY, after 8 bridgerton books, this collection allowed me to read from violet bridgerton’s perspective. violet and edmund’s relationship made my heart so full. i found edmund’s characterization so interesting. he was described as confident, comfortable in his body, and good spirited! it was a change of pace to see a carefree gentleman. i only wish that violet’s novella was longer!

    i am so glad to hear that @netflix​ has ordered a limited prequel series that will expand on the events detailed “the bridgertons: happily ever after.” the bridgerton universe is expanding and i am here for it!

    Today is the release date for my new novella, Les Vents du Printemps. This is my second novella and my ninth book I’ve published, and is book 2.5 of my L’Hiver series.

    If you like soaps, luxury, romance, the beauty industry, and luxury hotels, then you’ll love my book series.

    Les Vents du Printemps is also a stand-alone, in that it’s in the same universe as L’Hiver, but with different characters.

    Faking It With My Billionaire Boss by Melissa Schroeder

    5 stars

    I really  liked these two, they were everything you would expect in an insta-love  story! Both socially awkward, him having money, her having debt, and a fake  relationship that benefits them both. Queue the love at first site, don’t  forget the resistance and misunderstanding, and liberally sprinkled with  desire and no resistance to said desire. Top it all off with an epilogue for  now and one for the future <3
