Well. Here we are. The start of a new month and the beginning of a new way of doing things around the Cosmic Laire starship. But first I'd like to thank all of those who participated in the April A to Z Challenge this year. You made it a blast, and I'm proud to stand among you as a survivor. Cue the awesome survivor banner:
Woo! That's going to look lovely on my wall. See you next year!
Okay! Back to business. Some cool books were released that deserve mentioning, one of which is a murder mystery by the most excellent Jessie Humphries (her launch party in Las Vegas was killer, btw). The other novel is a sweet YA Sci fi from Anna Soliveres. Congratulations, ladies! Now sell more copies than you both know what to do with!
Next is the cover reveal (at last!) of Shallee McArthur's debut YA Sci Fi, The Unhappening of Genesis Lee. Let's make it big, shall we?
That's all kinds of neato, people. Look for it this November 4th!
So how about that Star Wars Episode VII cast announcement? Lots of relatively unknowns joining "forces" with the original trilogy cast, but I'm very curious to see what part Andy Serkis is going to play (he's from the Lord of the Rings Gollum fame). Yoda's cousin? I'm very curious to know what do you think of the cast. Do tell?
Update: Quite a few things happened during April. The Undead Road Betas are in. All positive (off to my agent now). Drafting of Woven 2 is underway, close to 10,000 words now, and with two conferences and a launch party, I'd need a whole post to sum it up adequately. The plan now is to keep writing, read two ARCs, and eat crullers.
Scratch that last one. More like carrot and celery sticks. Yum!
Here's to active and regular posting. Thanks for clicking in!
What were you up to last month? Excited for one (or all) of these books? What do you think of the Star Wars cast announcement?
I'm David, and this is how Frozen should have ended ...
