November goals update & what I've been reading

What I've been reading

Chase the Dark (Steel & Stone #1)

I've been looking for more great urban fantasy this month, and I found this fantastic YA paranormal/urban fantasy series, starting with Chase the Dark. Daemons, action and kick-ass characters -- what's not to love?

Boundary Crossed (Boundary Magic, #1)

Another great urban fantasy find was Boundary Crossed, the first in an action-packed series featuring witches and vampires.

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)

I ended up rereading an old favourite series in preparation to read the final book, Winter. <3 Best book I've read in 2015, and an awesome series end. If you haven't read the Lunar Chronicles yet (starting with Cinder), why not?!

What I've been writing

I finished my urban fantasy draft at 72K words!

I also worked on a side-project. Well, two. My brain had this weird glitch where it wanted to work on three books at once, so that was interesting.

What else I've been up to

I booked my trip to New Zealand next February! ^_^ I'll be flying into Wellington and travelling all over the South Island. I'm beyond excited! And also kind of terrified of the 31-hour flight and leaving my inbox unattended and wandering around a foreign country on my own. But it's been a while since I went adventuring. :D I already have a jet boating trip booked in Queenstown.

I also had a slightly extreme haircut, and impulse-bought awesome T-shirts. ;)

Meanwhile, Collision (Alliance, #3) was published.

Plans for December

I want to write at least 50,000 words.

Send Divided (Alliance, #4) to beta readers.

Send out advance copies of Indestructible.

In my next newsletter: end-of-year giveaway, Sneak peek at cover for Indestructible. :)


  1. Congrats on the 75k! And the finished draft, and the trip to New Zealand! That should be so awesome!

  2. I can't wait to read Winter! I already have read the other three. Also your haircut looks fantastic :) I cut my hair in a similarly short style in October, after having it down to my armpits length for a while. I love it, and I hope you love yours!
