#WeNeedDiverseBooks summer reading series! If you liked Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, try Drift by M.K Hutchins because both are high fantasy tales full of intrigue, strong world-building, and action.
Can’t wait to check out Drift!
Apparently how people feel after waking up from naps.
How I feel after waking up from naps.
Lol. Me too!
LOOK AT THEM ALL!
I would have put TAB in but my internet is terrible up here so I couldn’t be bothered.
Ahhh! So cool. <3
Happy St. Mark’s Eve! Behold the official cover and title of Raven Boys III, which comes out October 28, 2014.
Love this so much!!!
Rightly or wrongly, I assume my subconscious knows the story that I’m trying to tell, so I generally further assume that writer’s block means that I’ve wandered away from that story.
So my solution for writer’s block is to open a new document, name it OUTTAKES. Then I look at my original manuscript and highlight every single bit of novel that I am not thrilled by. Then I cut it and paste it into outtakes, so I can pretend I’ll use it again.
I guess maybe sometimes I use it again.
I had 150,000 words of outtakes for Dream Thieves. It was a novel I really, really wanted to get right.
Ronan plays the Irish pipes — that might be canon, actually. Is that already in Dream Thieves? It might be. He plays them because they are awesome, difficult, and sad.
One of the Lynch brothers plays the concertina. It’s the cute brother.

I think we can handle this assessment…

Ah, the memories…
Here is the thing about Kavinsky. I invested, like, 18 months of my life into him, and then he died, which is very annoying to me because he had all the good scenes and he lit things on fire and he drove my car (or maybe I drove his car; he had his Evo first) and he was just so tragic and terrible and awesome Ronan’s dark mirror and I loved him.
But he is dead. And I will not toy with anyone, because KAVINSKY: he is staying dead.
There is fall out in book 3, but also, book 3 is using different cameras than book 2, so the focus is different. Book 2 was Ronan’s book. Book 3 is not.
