A Very Merry Bookiversary!

*peaks out from under rock*

Oh, hai.

Well, I’m not dead! Just been busy working, writing, worry about working, worrying about writing, struggling to make ends meet, making big life decisions – you know, all that adult-related nonsense we have to put up with. So I just stopped by to check in with y’all and bring you a giveaway! That’s right folks. To celebrate the 6 month-ish bookiversary of Stones and Finger Bones, I’m giving away two signed copies over on Goodreads! Sincerest apologies to all my out-of-country peeps, but this author is on a budget so I could only open the giveaway to the US.

*hides in shame*

Anyway, if you’re currently residing in the states and want to get in on the action, head on over to the giveaway now!

Since we’re about half-way done with the year (how’d did that happen?!?) I thought this would be a good post to do a goal check-in and see where I’m at. In the spirit of brevity and clarity, I’m just going to copy/paste my 2015 goals and make notations about where I’m at. This was actually a good refresher for me, because I actually forgot about some of these – especially the writing ones. Oops.

Overall Heath & Wellness:

  • Continue making better food choices (Successful and ongoing! I’m actually doing a good job at tracking what I eat and making conscious better choices.)
  • Choose and start taking a vitamin D supplement (Sporadic. I forgot this was a goal.)
  • Stop tolerating sucky people (Doing pretty well here! I don’t voluntarily hang out with toxic people anymore and my social life drama is very minimal.)
  • Stop vehemently loathing work (yes, it takes away valuable time that could be used for writing or trolling the internet, but I have a mortgage to pay) (Still working on this one…)

Home Improvements:

  • Paint master bedroom and bath (Done and done!)
  • Find a bookshelf for room (Does pinning ideas count?)
  • Bring all books from home to new home (Not done, not started.)

Reading, Writing, & Publishing:

  • Finish 25 books. I know this might seem like a low number to some, but I’ve been really slacking on my reading habits. I don’t think I even finished 10 this year, which is terrible! (Very much on track to complete this goal!)
  • Do a better job of tracking these books, probably utilizing Goodreads (Success!)
  • Choose these books from the collection I already own and make list (Eh, not so much. A lot of the books I’ve read this year have been on my Kindle.)
  • Write at least 5,000 new words per month. I think this goal will complement my writing style better than daily or weekly goals, since I tend to write in fits and starts, and some days are more productive than others. (Nope…)
  • Outline book 2 of the Black Towers sequence (I think I need to be more diligent with outlining this one to make sure threads are being resolved, tangled, or cut as appropriate) (Double nope…)
  • Draft a Black Towers novella (Triple nope…)
  • Participate in bloggy activities. Blog more in general. Let’s aim for at least twice a month! (Hahahahahaha, nope.)

Well, I apparently still have some work to do before the year ends!

The Key of Amatahns — Debut Novel Blog Hop

debut novel blog hop banner03

To celebrate the re-release of The Key of Amatahns by Elisabeth Wheatley, Inkspelled Faery is hosting ten days of visiting your favorite authors as they talk about their very first novels, topped off by an all-day Facebook party with fun, games, and giveaways. Check out the full line up of authors and don’t forget to join the Facebook party on the 25th!

Cover Design by Ravven

Aurelia Barone, Jewel of Starry Stone, harbors no illusions about the purpose of her life as heir to the throne. But after two failed betrothals, she starts to feel like nothing more than a pawn being moved aimlessly about a game board.

Until the night she loses everything.

Kidnapped by a wise-cracking mercenary with more than one identity, Aurelia embarks on a mission across land and sea to avenge her father’s death.

But an evil is rising from the ashes of memory. Insidious magic is stirring. The dregs of a once-powerful nation are thirsty for blood and revenge.

They seek to harness Aurelia. To tempt her. To manipulate her.

And if necessary, to destroy her.

To start us off, can you sum up your first novel in a tweet, 140 characters or less?

Magic! Mayhem! Kissing! Handsome rogues! Narcissistic sociopaths!

What are you most proud of in this title?

I’m going to have to go with my characters. I worked very very very hard to make sure that no one was wholly good or wholly evil…that everyone was capable of performing “evil” deeds. Making sacrifices. There is no black and white morality here!

Do you think your writing has changed since your debut? In what way?

Hmm…this is an interesting one, because I just made my debut a few months ago. I know my writing has changed and evolved since I first started writing the story. And now that I’ve been through the editing meat grinder, I know where my weak spots are and how to fix them so hopefully book 2 is stronger from the get-go.

If you could give one piece of advice to yourself when you were writing your first book, what would it be?

Write a shitty first draft! I spent a lot of valuable time agonizing over whether the scenes were perfect or the words were right, when I could have been using that time to polish a written draft. You can’t edit a blank page!

Worst piece of writing advice anyone’s given you?

Write every day. Yes, I know this is very popular writing advice, but it was horrible for me. I also spent a lot of time during the writing of Stones thinking that I wasn’t a “real” writer because I didn’t write every day or meet daily word count goals. That’s just not how my creative brain works. Giving myself permission to write my way, and coming to the realization that every person’s writing process is different, was a huge relief! I don’t think I would have ever reached The End if I didn’t have this epiphany along the way.


If you thought this was fun, drop by the Facebook party going down on the 25th for more interviews with your favorite fantasy authors as well as games and goodies galore!

NaPoWriMo

This year I will attempt to participate in NaPoWriMo.

“NaPoWriMo, or National Poetry Writing Month, is an annual project in which participating poets attempt to write a poem a day for the month of April.”

I stole that directly from the About page on their website…simple and concise. You can write any kind of poems, on any kinds of topics, and if you get stuck they’ll offer a daily prompt! And if you just want to write towards the prompts, you can do that too! Basically it’s a poetry free-for-all. Madness!

*ahem*

Anyway, I’ll be taking part starting tomorrow, mainly to stretch my creaky creativity muscles…and I might be procrastinating writing other things. Me? Procrastinate? Never! 😀

So, that’s the end of this post. Easy peasy lemon squeezy! I just wanted to give y’all a heads up in case you were all like “WTF is that crazy girl posting weird poetry for?!?”*

*I make no promises that the poetry won’t be weird

**Carry on

WIPpet Wednesday: I’ve Got Nothin’

wippetwednesdayI think the title of this post is pretty self-explanatory. I have nothing new for WIPpet Wednesday because I have written nothing new on any of my WIPs.

Haha.

I’m so productive.

Anywho, in keeping with the spirit of one of my 2015 goals (be more bloggy) I figured I’d use this space for some updating.

I spent the weekend in editing hell.

What do I mean by editing hell, you ask?

Editing hell is agonizing over sentences and word choices and comma placement and action beats. Editing hell is searching the document for repeated phrases. Editing hell is searching the document for dashes, so you can make sure your spacing is consistent for all dashes (that was fun). Editing hell is running a spell check and finding no less than 5 misspelled words! One of them was sovereignty, so I guess I can forgive that, since we’re only human, after all. 😉

Revision Tip: FOR THE LOVE OF FLUFFY UNICORNS RUN A FINAL SPELL CHECK.

You see, that was the last time I could touch it before I sent it away to be formatted. And then I freaked out. And then I saw the Kindle preview and got excited again. Shew. It’s been an emotional whirlwind of a week.

So that’s where things stand, presently. Tonight, I approved the final e-book versions, with all the fun graphics added, and so now we’re on to the print version! And there was much rejoicing! Huzzah.

I’m still freaking out, by the way…just doing a better job of hiding my emotions!

Oh, before I forget, you can now add Stones on Goodreads. Almost 30 people — and I don’t personally know all of them! — have already added it to their To Read shelf. I’m having mini-panic attacks over this as well, because that means these people might actually read it, and then what if it suuuuuuuuccccckkkkkkkkkkkssssss.

I could probably ramble on and on about my nerves and over-excitable emotions and bore y’all to death…but instead I’m going to take deep breaths, eat chocolate, and remember this: “Trust your dreams. Trust your heart, and trust your story.”

*fingers crossed*

Alright, enough about me; let’s get on to the good stuff! You should definitely check out the other contributors to WIPpet Wednesday because I hear there’s a sexy pillow fight involved. Get on it! 😀

As always, a big thanks to K.L.Schwengel for babysitting us!

Goal Setting (Or, Stuff Jessica Fails Miserably At)

I’m not ready for today to be the last day of 2014; honestly, I don’t know how the year disappeared so fast. But, since tomorrow will begin a new year, I figured a little introspection was in order.

I don’t normally like to make a big hubbub about New Year’s resolutions, mainly because I don’t make them. I’m more of a short-term and long-term goals kind of girl. Sometimes they get written down, sometimes they don’t. IMG_45412206201343

That being said, I can’t tell you what I was thinking about this time last year (two years ago, I was suffering through the aftereffects of mutant strep throat, so I wasn’t thinking about much). But I can tell you what I managed to accomplish.

In February, I founded a YA critique group. We’re still going strong!

In April, I made the decision to indie publish my first novel. My goal was to get it out into the world in December, but I underestimated how long the process would take. So I guess I get to carry this goal over into 2015…huzzah!

In August, I found a new job, which has its ups and downs.

In September, I dumped the guy I always (not literally always, but you get the idea) thought I wanted to be with. Best. Decision. Eva. (And yes, I’m counting this as an accomplishment, and if you knew all the details of this, you would as well).

In October, I closed on my condo. MY FIRST PLACE. YAY ADULTHOOD.

In December, I was able to unveil the cover of Stones, which was some very exciting stuff. I was also able to turn 26 with minimal fuss and no quarter-life crisis breakdowns.

Those are the highlights of 2014…now we can proceed to goals for 2015!

Here’s the most obvious one: publish Stones and Finger Bones. This will be happening in February! I am thinking it will be ready to go by Valentine’s Day weekend, but I’m not releasing a specific date until I get the bugger formatted.

The rest of my goals are going to be broken down in categories for easy reference and so I can make lists. I love lists.

Overall Heath & Wellness:

  • Continue making better food choices
  • Choose and start taking a vitamin D supplement
  • Stop tolerating sucky people
  • Stop vehemently loathing work (yes, it takes away valuable time that could be used for writing or trolling the internet, but I have a mortgage to pay)

Home Improvements:

  • Paint master bedroom and bath
  • Find a bookshelf for room
  • Bring all books from home to new home

Reading, Writing, & Publishing:

  • Finish 25 books. I know this might seem like a low number to some, but I’ve been really slacking on my reading habits. I don’t think I even finished 10 this year, which is terrible!
  • Do a better job of tracking these books, probably utilizing Goodreads
  • Choose these books from the collection I already own and make list
  • Write at least 5,000 new words per month. I think this goal will complement my writing style better than daily or weekly goals, since I tend to write in fits and starts, and some days are more productive than others.
  • Outline book 2 of the Black Towers sequence (I think I need to be more diligent with outlining this one to make sure threads are being resolved, tangled, or cut as appropriate)
  • Draft a Black Towers novella
  • Participate in bloggy activities. Blog more in general. Let’s aim for at least twice a month!

And there be my goals! Mostly manageable, I think. I probably won’t be officially publishing anything else in 2015…but never say never! This, of course, depends on how fast I get things drafted, polished, edited, and all that jazz. If anything, I can aim for publishing the novella at the end of the year, but I’m not going to make than an official goal…yet. 😉

Happy New Year, minions!

On Writers and Reviews

As the release date for Stones creeps ever closer, I find myself growing ever more anxious. The cover is out in the world, with my name on it and guys…I’m kind of freaking out.

I think I’ve officially entered the “What in the name of fluffy unicorns have I done?” phase of publishing. Has anyone else been there?

If you were reading my other blog, you might know that I started writing this book at seventeen. Do you know how long that is? Nine years. Nine! That’s almost a decade, and now I’m just going to throw my baby out into the world and let her be judged and dissected and poked and prodded??

(Maybe no one will notice. But, my mother has been telling every living person she knows, so maybe not.)

Insanity. Madness, I tell you.

I know there’s very little left of the story 17-year-old Jessica envisioned; I don’t think there’s an original sentence left, but these characters have been with me since the beginning (most of them, anyway. The telepathic cat got cut).

Needless to say, I feel very affectionately towards Aurelia & Co. and it distresses me that someone out in the world – or the internet – might not feel the same way.

Which brings me to the other point of this post: reviews.

I’m supposed to be working on writing a scene that fleshes out some character development, but in the name of procrastination, I’ve been reading negative reviews of popular books on Goodreads.

Is this productive and/or healthy? I don’t know.

But I’m rationalizing this frenzied research by saying I’m preparing myself for the worst. How bad can it get?

Hahahahahahahahahaha.

Now, I like to think that I’m pretty thick-skinned. My writing has been taking punches since my first Intro to Creative Writing class in college, which I handled very gracefully, with only minimal griping behind the professor’s back. But these were very supportive environments, and mediated so things could never get too nasty.

Ever sorted the reviews of a book you liked by the users who gave 1 star? Yeah.

Most of the time these reviews are well-structured, eloquent, constructive, and sometimes amusing. And sometimes I agree with them. I’ll admit it; I don’t like every book I read, even though I know the author invested a lot of time and energy into the writing of it. I know they probably feel the same way I do about their “babies”.

I’m sure a “What the hell is this shit?” still stings, even for the most established authors.

But, here’s the kicker: established authors with popular, traditionally published books have 15,000 positive reviews, glowing with praise, to balance out the 800-1000 negative reviews.

As a soon-to-be indie author, like all the awesome indie authors before me, my work is going to live or die by reviews and recommendations. And one “What the hell is this shit?” review could dissuade many a potential buyer or new fan.

By no means do I have a perfect book (does anyone?) and I’m sure there will a typo or two (hopefully just two) that evaded the many eyes that looked over Stones.

Writers and editors are still human, people! 😉

But, I think I’ve crafted an entertaining read, at the very least, and no one will feel the urge to “hurl this book across the room with disgust”.

What about you, fellow indies? How do you feel about reviews and how do you handle them?

Stones and Finger Bones: The Playlist

Okay, so I know a lot of writer’s don’t listen to music when they work. They find it too distracting. I, on the other hand, get too distracted without music. And when I get “in the zone” the music disappears and leaves only me and the page.

Usually I just shuffle through my Pandora stations, skipping songs I don’t want to listen too, which can also get distracting. I know book playlists are suuuuuuper popular these days, but maybe there’s something to be said about a well-crafted and tended collection of songs that remind you of your WIP. What better way to get immediately inspired and emotionally connected?Playlist

What better way to procrastinate, amirite??

Without further ado, I present to you, the working playlist for Stones and Finger Bones!

*trumpet fanfare*

All of these songs speak to the story in some way, whether it’s a lyric or a melody or a theme. Or the conjuring of an image or a mood. Or just a plain ‘ole sucker-punch to the feels.

WARNING: Some songs contain explicit language.

WARNING AGAIN: This is probably the most random collection of music, ever. Like, srsly.

Stones and Finger Bones: The Playlist 

 

I haven’t figured out how to work/share playlists via Spotify (can you even?) so I just had to link to YouTube!

Updates Galore!

Greetings, my lovely peeps!

Thing have been a little hectic here lately, and I don’t have the energy for a useful informative post, so you’ll have to settle for a “life update” post instead.

Business Item Number 1:

I started a new job about 3 weeks ago, which accounts for all the busyness I’ve been encountering recently. I haven’t had nearly enough time to cultivate and tend to my social media outlets. And my Pinterest boards. The struggle is real, y’all.

Business Item Number 2:

I got that infernal prologue written and sent it off to my editor. She returned it with minimal revisions (yay!), and I got it critiqued by my writing group last Monday. Besides a few piddly issues — like Track Changes deleting spaces — I’ve officially finished the heavy-duty editing process! Woop woop!

I cleaned up the piddly issues (hopefully) and literally just sent Stones off to a second round of beta readers.

With all that being said, here’s an updated, still-subject-to-change publication schedule:

September: Stones in the hands of new betas, start working on that back cover copy (do not want).

October: More editing and proofing. Depending on what kind of feedback I receive from betas, I may or may not send it back to my editor. If changes are minor, I’ll just prepare for a final proofread for small errors. Also, COVER REVEAL MONTH!

November: Formatting, final cover design for the paperback version, and any miscellaneous issues.

In my mind, I’m still on schedule for an early December release. Of course, since this is my first time, I could be seriously underestimating the time it takes to get Stones out and about. I also don’t think I’ve got much wiggle room for catastrophic events or grievous errors. Anyone know what those could be??

December seems to be creeping up on me so fast!

Oh, and I’ll be throwing promotional stuff around in there as well. Oy. So much to do!

Author Interview: Kate Sparkes

Today I get the pleasure of hosting Kate Sparkes, the author of Bound, who agreed to let me interview her! In case you missed it, here’s the lovely link to Kate’s cover reveal, which I participated in at the beginning of June.

First, let’s start off with some basic information about her debut novel, Bound. (Questions are numbered and in bold, answers underneath.)

1. Where did the idea come from for the book?

I always joke that they say to write what you know, so I wrote headaches. There’s some truth in that, though. My headaches frequently send me to a dark, quiet bedroom, which means a lot of long, lonely, quiet hours for stories to percolate in my aching brain. I wondered what would happen if someone had headaches that turned out to be caused by something more significant than atmospheric pressure and aspartame, and my love of fantasy led me to consider a magical connection.

That gave me the beginnings of a character. The plot came when I asked what would happen if a nice, fairly average girl accidentally rescued a bad guy, and their lives just kept on colliding. Those two ideas combined and took me places I never expected, but that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed writing about.

2. What genre does your book fall under?

I’m going with “Mature YA Fantasy.” Young adult themes, mature situations (though nothing as explicit as some readers would like, sorry!), romance, adventure, magic… it’s all so hard to pin down.

3. Give us a one sentence synopsis for your book.

When nineteen-year-old Rowan Greenwood accidentally saves the life of one of her people’s most feared enemies, she learns that all of her childhood wishes might just come true– that is, if the one thing she’s always wanted doesn’t kill her first.

(hint- it’s not finding Prince Charming.)

Now, let’s get to the juicy bits!

4. What does your writing process look like?

It varies, depending on the story. I’ll usually let an idea stew in my brain for a long time before I actually tackle it, letting ideas and plots mingle while the characters develop. Once I feel like I have the outline of a solid story with enough conflict and purpose to drive it, I’ll sit down do a very rough outline, and then get the first draft out. I don’t edit as I go– if I do, I never finish anything. I aim for 1000 words an hour when I’m drafting, but how long the draft takes depends entirely on what else is going on in my life at the time. Much as I’d like consistent 4000 word days, I’m usually lucky to get 2000 in. The first draft of Bound took a good seven months.

After that, I let it sit, read and revise, then have beta readers rip it to shreds. If the story seems worth pursuing, it’s on to actually investing money in it. I had an amazing editor for Bound who showed me how to make the story shine. Developmental edits can be pricey, but I’m glad I went that route for the first book. Then more edits by me, volunteer proofreaders, and starting the publishing process.

It sounds simple, but it takes a long time. I might work on more than one story at a time, and can’t devote more than a few hours a day to work. That first round of pre-beta revisions took a few years for Bound. I’m working on bringing that down as I become more experienced and confident.

5. Do you have any strange writing habits?

I’m not sure what counts as “strange”. Rewarding myself with chocolate during edits seems pretty normal. Characters having conversations in my head does, too. Most of my habits hurt productivity rather than helping it, so I probably shouldn’t share them.

6. What book do you wish you could have written?

That answer varies depending on what I’ve read recently that’s blown me away. Almost anything by Stephen King, especially his recent stuff. Unwind by Neal Shusterman had a concept and execution that I envy, and I wish I’d created Celaena Sardothien from Throne of Glass (Sarah J Maas). She kicks ass, but is still so human.

7. What is your least favorite part of the publishing/writing process?

Right now, I’m going to say writing the blurb (sales/cover copy) for a book. Deciding how much to give away, making it sound appealing, and trying to make it different nearly drove me mad. I spent three weeks on it, and am happy with the result, but it was torture.

I don’t think I’ll like marketing much, either.

8. What’s the best piece of writing advice you’ve ever received?

Any variation of “just do it”. I spent years not writing, thinking that it wasn’t the right time, that I was too young to do it right, that someday I’d have more time and energy to tackle it properly. But the only way you get better is by practicing. So what if your first stories are crap? You need the experience. Shove them in a box and move on.

Part two of that is “finish what you start”.

9. What has been the toughest criticism you’ve been given as an author?

Being told my heroine was unsympathetic at times was rough. It can be hard to balance reader expectations with what seems realistic for a character. I felt that she had a right to be bitchy after being abducted, injured, terrified and lied to. Other people thought she should be apologetic for it so she’d be more likable, that she should be nicer to a man who she didn’t trust. It was hard criticism to take, and I hope I’ve found a balance even if I refused to give in completely on that.

Interestingly enough, no one seems to judge my male character when he’s being a jerk. But that’s another topic entirely.

10. Do you have any literary character crushes?

SO many. Most of them are just flings, though. Right now I’m starry-eyed over Jayden Feldall in Krista Walsh‘s Evensong series (cocky bastard, how I adore him), and when I was beta reading Emergence for KL Schwengel I developed a bit of a thing for Berk. Barbie (Dale Barbara) from Under the Dome. LOVE that guy. I haven’t spent time with him in years, though, since I lost my copy of the book. I hate what they did to him in the TV series. I need to buy that book again just to get rid of the bad taste. I don’t tend to go for super dominant males, so I have a hard time falling in love with a lot of characters in Romance these days. The exception to that is Soren in Tiffany Reisz’s Original Sinners series. *drool*

I also tend to pick the wrong “team” in love triangles. [spoiler alert!] Loved Gale in The Hunger Games. Not a fan of Peeta.

11. How did you go about naming your characters? Do you choose names based on meaning/significance, or the way they sound or look?

I’m terrible with names. Really. Rowan and Aren didn’t get their names until I’d been working on Bound for over a year, and one character has had four different names (long story). The name has to fit the character. It’s nice if it has appropriate meaning, but I go more by the sound and feel of it. Names have to be easy to remember and pronounce, and I try to avoid anything that’s being used in a lot of other books.

Actually, I almost rejected Aren’s name because of its meaning. I thought I’d made it up, but then found it on a baby name site. It gives something away about his character, but I doubt most readers will look it up before they read. It was and is perfect for him. I let it stay.

12. Did anything surprise you about your book? An unexpected plot twist or uncooperative character?

Aren surprised me. He started as a major character, but didn’t get to tell his side of events. Events late in the story made me realize that I needed him to narrate at least a few chapters. With every draft he took over more and more of the story, and his voice became stronger. Even in the last round of edits, he got another scene and took over one that Rowan had told before. It’s been a difficult process, and getting into his head meant I had to do a lot of extra work solidifying his motivations. But I’m happy with the result.

13. What was the hardest scene to write in Bound

No spoilers! The hardest single scene to write was probably the climax. My editor told me that what I had didn’t make sense in terms of character motivation, and it was melodramatic. It needed major re-writes, and I ended up adding a lot of words, but it was definitely worth the hard work.

The other thing I found brain-meltingly difficult was writing scenes where characters explain world-specific concepts like how magic works. It can be hard to do that without slowing the story down, but so far readers seem pleased with how it’s all worked out.bound_promo

14. What does your protagonist think about you? Would he or she want to hang out with you, the author?

Good question. I doubt either Aren or Rowan would jump at the chance to have a coffee with me after everything I’ve put them through. I certainly haven’t gone easy on them so far, and there’s worse to come.

15. If you could change ONE thing about your novel, what would it be? Why?

Hmm. There are things I’d change about how I wrote it. I’d show it to at least one reader sooner, before I thought it was perfect (ha!). But as for the story as it stands now, I don’t think there’s anything I’d change. There are no perfect books, but Bound is exactly the story I set out to tell.

16. Bound is the first book of a trilogy. Do you have the remaining books plotted? Do you know how the series ends?

Book two is drafted and in revisions right now, and I’m hoping to release it in February 2015. Book three is mostly plotted. I know how it all ends (and it’s hard not to talk about it, because it’s so exciting!), but I still have work to do on the middle before it’s ready for me to start drafting.

17. What question do you wish that someone would ask about your book, but nobody has?

I don’t know. It would be really cool if people picked up on seeds I’ve planted for things that come up in later books and asked me about them, but I can’t say what without getting spoilery.

18. What are you working on now? What is your next project?

Right now I’m working on revising book two of this trilogy. Once that’s off to beta readers, I’ll get back to edits on my Urban Fantasy novella, which early readers have been excited about. That’s always been a side project, but I think it’s actually going to make it to publication.

 


 

I hope you’ve enjoyed this interview with Kate, and are as excited about the release of Bound as I am.

And now for one of the most important parts…purchase links!
