Currently...

It's time for another fortnightly "Currently..." update about what I'm doing right now! :)

Loving

Not having the plague. :P I've had two killer viruses in three weeks, which completely knocked me out. It's nice to be able to write without being all fuzzy-headed from flu...

Also, finishing my draft! Technically, it was a rewrite (I'm reworking a duology as a trilogy, so I split the second book in two and turned the first half into a complete draft), but it's nice to have half the battle done. ^_^ Next up: Book 3!

Reading

End of Days by Susan Ee, the third book in the Penryn & the End of Days series (I reviewed Angelfall way back in 2012!). Such an addictive and amazing post-apocalyptic series!

I also read An Ember in the Ashes, which was... amazing. There's been a lot of hype around this book, but it's definitely well-deserved!

Watching

I finished Daredevil, which I loved! Every series seems to be ending at the moment - Arrow, The Flash, Agents of SHIELD... But I've started watching Gotham, so that's keeping me entertained.

Listening to

Angry heavy metal, because I'm writing about the end of the world. ;)

Thinking about

My WIP. Now I'm onto the final book of the trilogy after finishing rewriting the second (evil cliffhanger alert *muahahaha*), so I've been re-outlining and made a start on the draft.

Also, my next fantasy series. I've been working on the worldbuilding and magic system since February/March, so this one's slow-going. But I'm hoping to start writing the first book this summer!

Anticipating

YALC! I know it isn't until July, but I already have my tickets booked, and I can't wait to go back to London and meet some of my favourite authors! :D

Wishing

I could concentrate on writing while preparing to send out review copies of my next book (Nemesis, Alliance Book 2)! *flails*

Making me happy

Well, Darkness Watching was on sale last week, combined with a BookBub ad, and managed to hit the top #1 in two categories! O_O Wow. I never expected a book that's been out (and, well, not selling) since 2013 to suddenly get a new surge of life, so I'm pretty thrilled with the results! YAY READERS! ^_^

  3. Happy to hear AN EMBER IN THE ASHES was good. I've heard a lot of great things about it, but with all the books coming out, it's tough getting to all of them. Will bump this one up my TBR list now. :-) Congrats on all the writing and finishing you've been doing. You're getting so much done! Have a great week, Emma!

  4. I still need to watch Daredevil. I wasn't crazy about the movie, but I've heard good things about the show.

    Glad you're feeling better!
