Time for another round-up. Let’s get to it.
Goodreads Turns 10
September 18th was #hideabookday in honor of Goodreads’ 10th anniversary. I took to my alma mater to hide a couple of copies of Midnight. (Fingers crossed they found some good homes.)
Smudge Nose Books
The final piece in Midnight’s journey was added a few weeks ago when Smudge Nose Books was formed.
Q: What is Smudge Nose Books?”
A: It’s me. Hi. *waves*
Q: What does this mean?
A: I’m still self-publishing, but now with a cute logo for my DBA.
Q: Why ‘smudge nose’?
A: I really love my cat, ok. His name is Peanut. There’s a Peanut (no relation) in Midnight. It seemed fitting.
Q: Are you publishing anything else under the new imprint name?
A: The rest of The Opposition series for certain. I put off creating SNB until I was certain that Midnight would sell. Boy, did you guys prove my hesitation was for nothing. As for anything else? Time will tell. I’m not ruling it out, but my main focus right now is The Opposition, so it’s hard to think about working on anything else.
What have I been up to? Other than the stuff you just read? Writing. Lots and lots of writing. Also, BOOKS. Always always books.
I’ve been going through a lot of books. Here’s a few of some recent discoveries, all YA favorites with amazing girl MCs:
- The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
- If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo
- The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis
I’ve left a few short reviews on my Goodreads account about my recent reads. If you want to know what I’m reading next or want to suggest a title (or just yell about whatever book you’re reading) follow me there! I’m getting more active on Goodreads, and it’s surprisingly easy to get sucked into spending an hour there. My TBR pile is now out of control thanks to that site. I regret nothing.
If you’re following me on Instagram you’d know I’m having a contest for a print copy of Midnight. There’s still plenty of time to enter.
Also, there’s a newly formed street team on Facebook: The Opposition Street Team! It’s still in it’s early stages, but if you want to apply to be a beta reader for my next book, you might want to join so you can be the first to know when that’s going down.
It’s almost fall, you guys! Which means the next time you hear from me it might just be a bunch of photos of apple pie and skeletons.
