Feeling incredibly thankful…

Ever since I got my beta notes back in May, I’ve been spending every day (that I can) rewriting and revising my current WIP, GUARDED. And then this past Saturday, I finished a draft that I’m actually rather proud of.

I’ve been blessed with phenomenal CP’s and beta-readers this past year. CP’s who were patient and willing to help me learn and grow as a writer. Because seriously, I had a lot of work to do to get GUARDED to where it is now. The narrative was too thin, which contributed to flattening some important characters in the novel, AND the way I had initially plotted the novel left one of my most compelling characters on the sidelines for most of the story.

Since I started to take my dreams of being a published author seriously, I’ve tried to maintain the mindset that the story comes before everything else. Meaning that regardless of how difficult expanding my writing skills was going to be or how painful the criticism was, I would do what I needed to in order to do the characters and their stories justice.

And so I learned how to write a fuller narrative (Thanks, Chelsea!). And I learned to let go of my dialogue tags and adverbs (Thanks, Columbia Writers!). I also learned that even though it’s the protagonist’s story, it’s also the story of every character in the novel (Thanks, Todd, Brigitte, Deidre, and Dustin!).

But most importantly, I learned how incredibly important it is to never give up. Granted, I have a long road ahead of me yet with the querying (and hopefully, submission process), but the manuscript I have now would never have become what it is without the long, painful hours of revision paired with the many, many, MANY cups of coffee.

I am SO thankful for not only the lovely people listed above, but also for all of you incredible people who follow my blog. Your support is so encouraging and I can’t begin to thank you enough.

But before I get off this gratitude train, I do have four other peoples to thank, and lucky for y’all, they’re also bloggers…

Nicolette Elzie @ A Little Bookish, A Little Writerly
Nicolette was one of the first people to comment on my blog. I remember opening the comment on my phone in the Starbucks drive-thru and legitimately started tearing up. It was on a relatively personal post, Why You’re Not Writing: Critical Introspection, where I had opened up about my PTSD and how it affected my writing. Her words were so encouraging. I wasn’t quite sure what to do with myself. Since then, she’s become a dear friend, instrumental in my blog growth (all the tags! Lol), as well as recently volunteered to read through the latest draft of GUARDED, which is half the reason I’m even able to say that I’m proud of this draft. Her excitement for the book makes me flail a lot, and also gives me hope for the future of this project!

Melanie @ Melanie Noell Bernard, Aspiring Novelist
Another writer I met through the blog-o-sphere. She’s hilarious and tenacious and I’m so excited I can call her a friend. She’s a huge inspiration to me as a blogger, because she hauls ass with the posts, nearly one every day! I don’t know how she does it! Not to mention she entertains my psychobabble. She’s another poor victim I’ve conned into reading GUARDED. She’s usually more of a SciFi reader, so I appreciate her stepping into fantasy for a couple hundred pages. XD

Hanna @ J.L. Gribble
Incredibly talented author and overall lovely human being, Hanna has played a pivotal role in keeping me sane (well, kinda haha). I met her during NaNoWriMo last year during the write-in’s. The moment she said she had a crotchety old vampire modeled after a red-headed Michael Fassbender, I knew we had to be friends. (If I didn’t tell you this already, Hanna, SORRY!) Her first book, Steel Victory, came out this past summer, and trust me, guys, you want to know these characters! Plus the world is phenomenally brilliant. I’ve read a short story and a novella from this series, both were FANTASTIC! I’m about halfway through Steel Victory now and can’t wait to share my thoughts on Hanna’s debut.

And now for why I’m thankful for her friendship (because I’m leaving in the tangent about her beautiful book!), Hanna was incredibly kind and patient in working with me while I tried to figure out how to write the proper narrative for GUARDED. I can’t tell you how many versions she and Chelsea read of Chapter One, but it was a LOT. Hanna also invited me to her publisher’s writing retreat where I got to connect with some fantastic people as well as do my first reading.

And last, but certainly not least…

Lynanne @ Daybreak in Autumn
Lynanne reached out to me on LadiesWhoCritique.com because of our mutual interests and writing genre/audience. And though we did start out simply as critique partners, she swiftly became my soundboard for EVERYTHING! Any crazy twists/turns in my books, she heard them first. Anytime I needed to rant about a book I read or criticism I received (there’s a difference between constructive criticism and just being an asshole – I’ve received both), she was an incredible friend and took all the rants in stride. Thank you, Lady! For being such a wonderful friend!

I feel so lucky and blessed to have all these people in my life. And seeming as how this gush fest is nearing a thousand words, I’m going to stop. Thank you everyone I mentioned above and a special thank you to all of you reading this! I’m beyond grateful for your support.

Wishing you a very happy holiday season!

Bath & Body Works Book Tag

 Another lovely tag from the talented Nicolette at A Little Bookish, A Little Writerly. You can find her awesome list of reads on her blog, here.

And since I have some books I’d love to gush about myself, here’s the post.


Pure Paradise – A book that was pure perfection A Darker Shade final for Irene
A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab. I know I said this in my book review but this book legitimately had EVERYTHING I’ve ever wanted in a fantasy novel. Magic, Intrigue, Betrayal, Suspense, and OH MY GOD, THE PACING! Not to mention the incredibly elegant prose with which Schwab writes. It’s all just so… BRILLIANT!

 

Sweet Pea – A romance/contemporary you really enjoyed
My heartMy Heart And Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga. This book. I don’t read a lot of contemporary or romance, but the stuff I do, I need to be complex and beautiful and have an epic-level character arch. This book was all these things, along with a carve-my-heart-out realism that had me going through all the feels. There is a trigger warning of suicide with this one, but I highly recommend picking this up. Warga does a fantastic job at tackling a difficult and complex topic.

 

Fresh Strawberries – A book you really enjoyed that came out this yearRed Queen
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. I enjoyed a LOT of books this year, and there were a lot of fantastic new releases (a lot that I haven’t had the chance to read just yet). But Red Queen was the first new release for 2015, as well as a debut, and I was really all around impressed with it. The writing, the incredible fight scenes. Mind you I’m a total sucker for twisty plots, but Aveyard does a great job at laying the ground work for her twists that makes them both surprising and expected. They’re the kind of twists that have you smacking yourself because you should have seen them coming. I’m really looking forward to seeing where the series goes.

 

Warm Vanilla – A character and/or book that made you feel all warm inside
HOF CoverHeir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas. I know this is an odd choice for “Warm Vanilla”, but I promise there’s a good reason, though it is incredibly personal. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know I spent 2011 in Iraq and struggle with PTSD as a result. During this book, Celaena confronts a lot of her own demons, things that have been weighing on her shoulders, things that have made her doubt/hate herself. This book gave me the safe place I needed to process emotions I hadn’t had the courage to deal with before. So as Celaena healed throughout the book, I was able to do some healing of my own. Here’s the link to my book review.

 

Paris Amour – A couple you majorly ship together 79329_original
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas. I’m sure this comes as no surprise to anyone, but AELIN AND ROWAN. ALL DAY. EVERY DAY. I don’t care what you Celorian shippers say, Rowan is my ultimate ship for Aelin. He’s her match in every way. He understands her without judgment and loves every bit of her. I want one. Can I have one? Someone find me one. Please? Here’s the link to my book review.

 

Dancing Waters – A book that takes place on the beach/ the perfect beach read
Bridget Jones DiaryBridget Jones Diary by Helen Fielding. To be fair, it’s the only book I’ve read that can be considered a “beach read.” But this book is HILARIOUS. The voice, the constant failings of the MC. It’s all a fun, ridiculous story. Plus it’s a loose Pride and Prejudice retelling. What’s not to love?

 

I Heart Cake (and Books) – your favorite bookLioness Rampant
The Song of the Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce. I know, I’m totally cheating. I don’t care. I can’t pick an individual book in this quartet. They all just fit together so nicely. You should really just read them all in one sitting… But seriously, this series is the reason I’m a writer. The protagonist has ambition and doesn’t let anyone, even a love interest, get in her way. It’s an incredibly progressive book in terms of how a young woman addresses life and love, but you know, in a fantasy setting. *high-fives young feminists everywhere*

 

Winter Candy Apple – A book set during Christmas or winter
Winter-finalWinter by Marissa Meyer. I know, I’m cheating here too because it’s not set in Winter, it’s set ON THE MOON! But I figured the title counted enough. Plus there’s the whole thing where there’s also apple candies in the book, so this totally fits. Anyhoo, if you haven’t picked up the Lunar Chronicles series yet, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! This series is incredibly expansive, and Winter is the most brilliant, well-done finale I’ve read in a LONG TIME. Seriously. Meyer covers all her bases in this book and ties up ALL the loose ends. She also does a fantastic job at keeping the pace consistent. There’s no lull. There’s no here-let-me-cramp-in-all-the-answers. It’s just incredibly well done. Writers, take note. That’s how you end a series.

 

Beautiful Day – A book with an unusual / interesting / appealing setting220px-Bloodline2005
Bloodline by Kate Cary. It’s set during WWI, and is a sort of a continuation/spin off of Dracula. It’s also told in a series of journal entries from all characters involved, including the antagonist. Need I say more?

 

Dazzling Diamonds – A beautiful cover
GatesOfThreadGates Of Thread And Stone by Lori M. Lee. So in order to REALLY get the full scope of how gorgeous this book is, you have to take off the dust jacket. Not only is the dust jacket impeccable, giving us our MC, her world, AND her ability (she can manipulate the threads of time), not to mention the title text is GORGEOUS, BUT the actual hard cover IS PRINTED! That’s right, undress the cover and you get a city scape. The words inside are also fantastic. Lee’s writing is deliciously detailed and the action scenes and the way she writes Kai’s ability makes you feel like you’re fighting a boss in a video game. I don’t know how she does it, but it’s spectacular.


If you’ve read the above books, I’d love to here your thoughts! As for the lovely book bloggers I’m going to tag…

The 7/7/7 Challenge: A Writer Tag

Nicolette Elzie from A Little Bookish, A Little Writerly tagged me in the 7/7/7 Challenge. The incredible featured graphic was also created by her talented self.

She saw this writer’s tag on John’s blog @ Am I Doing This Right, and because she has an addiction to tags, she passed it along. Check out the synopsis and excerpt of her current WIP, Dreamweaver, here. I’ve been lucky enough to read the first few chapters, and I can already tell I’m in for a FANTASTIC adventure. Where I’m at in the MS, the world feels like a cross between Shadow and Bone and Cinder. So if that doesn’t wet your appetite, I don’t know what will!

Please don’t kill me for gushing about your story, Nicolette! ❤

The 7/7/7 Challenge Rules:

  • Go to page 7 of your work-in-progress
  • Scroll down to line #7
  • Share the next 7 lines of your manuscript in a blog post
  • Tag 7 other writers (with blogs) to continue the challenge.

My current WIP, Guarded, is a young adult fantasy that I hope will appeal to fans of City of Bones and Daughter of Smoke & Bone.

Because I don’t want to give away any spoilers, I’m going to give you the pitch instead of the full synopsis.

Three years have passed since Kjersten Taylor killed her parents’ murderers by pulling all the water from their bodies. She hasn’t spoken a word of the incident to her twin sister, Chloe, and has even convinced herself that it was a hallucination, a product of Post-Traumatic Stress.

But when she begins levitating coffee at work, Kjersten can no longer escape the truth: she is one of six Aeons, manipulators of the natural world.

Her ability to control water makes Kjersten a target as the Council tries to round up the Aeons to drop the veil between the magical realm, Tearmann, and the rest of humanity. Before Kjersten can warn her sister, Chloe is taken hostage by the Council’s enemies, and Kjersten must wade into the brewing war and put her own life on the line to get her sister back.


And now the challenge:

I opened my mouth to speak but quickly shut it. I wanted to lash out, to scream about how my parents weren’t here, so their opinions didn’t matter anymore. I wanted to rant about the different things my father could have done to keep us together, to keep us safe. We could have moved around. We could have changed our identities. He could have hired bodyguards. There were so many could-haves, yet my father chose to stay and die.

His choices orphaned Chloe and me. His choices left me alone with this burden.

His choices left me mourning fourteen years of campfires and Tae Kwon Do lessons and water gun fights and Thanksgiving dinners. And mourning him.


I am currently on the last leg of this manuscript, polishing it up for querying early 2016, and I am beyond excited for how it’s turning out (and how it’s been perceived thus far – Nicolette, you are a saint!). I left poor Nicolette on a cliffhanger in the last section I gave her (SORRY!), but I’m just a few short days from having another completed draft. EEK! I can’t wait for the next read-through.

*clappy hands* Okay, I’ll stop rambling… Here are my victims. Sorry if you’ve already been tagged!

Happy Writing!

BOOK REVIEW: A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Holy Hera. Where has this book been all my life?!

A Darker Shade of Magic is the first book in a new fantasy series written by V.E. Schwab. It follows the misadventures of Kell, the last of a unique breed of magician that can travel between different dimensions. The London’s of each dimension differ based on their relationship with magic, and when magic from a darker realm hitches a ride to another, Kell’s life plummets into chaos.

But seriously, THIS BOOK! From cover to gorgeous cover, I enjoyed every word of it. The concept, the characters, THE WRITING. All of it was fantastic. And unique. And gorgeous. And brilliant. And ALL THE AWESOME ADJECTIVES!

Onto specifics though…

NON-SPOILERY REVIEW

Let’s start with the writing. The best way I can explain the “feel” of this book is to call it a classic fairytale with modern pacing. The elegant narrative is in a close third from multiple POV’s that gives you the most intimate view of both the plot and all the major players.

Schwab also doesn’t hold any punches. Once Kell makes that first misstep, he keeps on tripping, all the way to the end. Anything that can go wrong, does, and it keeps the plot brilliantly paced, always sprinting forward.

I have to confess that this is my first time reading Schwab, and a quarter of the way through ADSOM, I realized that I would follow this author anywhere, to whatever genre she chose to take on. The writing, the STORYTELLING, is THAT GOOD! So many things go into what makes a good book for me. Concept, Characters, Plot, World, and Writing are the main five. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve fallen in love with books that hit three of the five. But this book had EVERYTHING. The multiple Londons, the way magic worked, the elegant prose, the fast-paced plotting, the complex set of characters, ADSOM was everything I could have ever wanted in a fantasy novel.

I feel like I should clarify here that I think most books are lovable, but writing is a subjective art. And when I judge a book based on the five criteria’s I mentioned above, it’s more on a dial and less of a straight yes or no. So when I say that I’ve loved books that hit 3/5, it’s more so it maxed out those criteria.

But anyhoo, back to the review. Stop here if you don’t want spoilers!

SPOILERY FANGIRLING

So I guess this isn’t really a spoiler as it’s the first thing you see of Kell, but THAT COAT! I love the coat. I want that coat. And the fact that Schwab opens the story on the coat immediately throws us into the deep end of her world.

“What? You didn’t know this was a fantasy? Well, now you do! Hope you can swim!”

Okay, it wasn’t THAT abrupt, but you get a quick sense of the world and Kell, all within the span of the first couple pages. BRILLIANT!

Side note: There are bound to be numerous Brilliant’s in this section. SORRY!

Moving on, I love how complex Kell is. Much like his coat, Kell has multiple sides. Prince. Ambassador. Antari. Smuggler. And Schwab captures each every one of them beautifully. She also illustrates how important subtle urges like “belonging” are. From Kell’s relationship to his brother, Prince Rhy, to his complex camaraderie with fellow Antari, Holland, and even his affinity for smuggling tokens across London lines, we understand quickly that Kell is searching for that thing/place/person that makes him feel “home.”

Then he meets Delilah Bard, who is one of the most clever characters I’ve had the pleasure of reading. She’s a thief, but she’s far from stereotypical. She has an aspiration to see the world, any world, and have an adventure. She doesn’t want charity and doesn’t really want to be a thief forever (though she does want to be a pirate). Thievery is a means to an end for her, a means to get out of the slums of Gray London. Then she picks Kell’s pocket and finds an adventure that she’s not 100% sure she’ll survive.

The dynamic between Kell and Lila is a brilliant one (told you). Lila gives Kell that sense of “belonging” that he’s been searching for, and Kell is a promise of adventure for Lila. But my favorite thing about their relationship: IT’S NOT ROMANTIC! Their mutual respect and camaraderie has NOTHING to do with sexual attraction or romance and IT IS MY FAVORITE!

Also, Lila outsmarts Kell at nearly every turn. She sees things so complexly, and we see how with the stone. Where Kell simply calls it “bad magic,” she recognizes it as “clever.” And I think this is an important distinction between the two characters, not only setting them up for future plotlines, but also to show how they balance each other. Kell is intelligent, yes. But Lila is cunning. And the two of them together is, yes I’m going to say it again, BRILLIANT.

Another side note: I can’t tell you how excited I am for A Gathering Of Shadows (ADSOM #2 coming in February 2016)! If only because I’m fairly certain Lila is also Antari. She’s missing an eye but doesn’t remember how. We know there’s magic in her, but the telltale sign of the Antari is the singular black eye… Miss Schwab, what do you have planned?

Moving along to antagonists, the Dane twins. I LOVE how Schwab sets these two up. Okay, I love how she sets up all her characters. She shows their motivations immediately upon meeting them, which allows the reader to spend the story guessing what that character will do or how far their power reaches. And I LOVE the fact that we see the undoing of Danes in their first scene as well. The fact that they lead by force, that little detail, is what costs them Holland and the black stone in the end.

GAAAAH!!! IT’S ALL JUST SO BRILLIANT (5)!!!

So there it is, my review for the INCREDIBLE A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab. If you haven’t picked up this book, DO IT! DO IT NOW! If you have, I’d love to hear your thoughts below!

 

Timey-Whimey Snarkitude No. 3 – My 2015 NaNoWriMo Project

And here it is, the last of three posts devoted to my 2015 NaNoWriMo Project.

For those of you new to the blog, this is part of a series link-up, Beautiful Books, created by Sky of Further Up, Further In and Cait of Paper Fury. For more information on the link-up, check out the original post, here.

If you haven’t read the other two posts in the series, you can find the first one here and the second here.

But to catch you up, here’s a quick run down of the WIP:

Enveloped (working title) is the third book in a YA Fantasy series that follows the next generation of Aeons, manipulators of the natural world, as they come into their own and battle the Council to maintain the balance between the magical world and the rest of humanity.

Meredith Wilson is the Aeon of Time and Space, and to protect her, her mother has shuffled her from boarding school to boarding school. The only constant being her Guardian, Wyatt.

In her last semester before she’s finally free to her own devices, Meredith is tired of running, tired of going through life without any real ties to keep her grounded. But when she puts her trust in the wrong person, what little she did have is put in jeopardy.


And now for the questions:

No 1. – On a scale of 1 (worst) to 10 (best), how did the book turn out? Did anything defy your expectations?
So I’m going to cheat with this scale a bit. With 1 being garbage and 10 being publishable, I would put this NaNo draft at about a 4. I definitely have a lot of material to work with going into revision, but I wouldn’t show this draft to ANYONE, especially with there being chunks of the story missing.

No. 2 – Comparative title time: what published books, movies, or TV shows are like your book? (Ex: Inkheart meets X-Men.)
Veronica Mars meets Doctor Who, where Veronica IS the TARDIS. (I can’t tell you how happy this makes me.)

veronica dances.gif

No. 3 – Do you enjoy working with deadlines and pressure (aka NaNoWriMo)? Or do you prefer to write-as-you’re-inspired?
Yes and yes. I’m definitely goal oriented, but as much as I would love to write only when I’m feeling inspired, I would rarely get any work done.

No. 4 – How do you go about editing? Give us an insight into your editing process.
After the rough draft, I begin on macro-edits. Basically, I map out what’s missing from the story and what’s not working. Once those are completed, I start fleshing out the places that feel lackluster.

When I’m happy with the overall arc and flow of the story, I start ripping apart the mechanics and refining the actual writing. This is usually the part where I start pulling out my hair and cursing at metaphors.

No. 5 – What aspect of your story needs the most work?
The settings. And the connective tissue between the scenes. During my initial draft, I work more in individual scenes than in overall story. The skeleton draft needs some tendons to make it usable.

Please excuse the maniacal laugh in the background. The gruesome analogy required it.

Skeleton gif.gif

No. 6 – What aspect of your story did you love the most?
I know I said this during the last BB post, but I really did love Mer’s resiliency.

Coming in a very close second is her friendship with Wyatt. He’s calculated, sweet, and can take all of Mer’s snark in stride. Getting to see their friendship grow and evolve was so much fun.

No. 7 – Give us a brief run down on your main characters and how you think they turned out. Do you think they’ll need changes in edits?
Mer is resilient, but starts the story off thinking that her ability to manipulate time and space makes her more untouchable than she is, so she wanders through life less than present. She learns throughout the story how fragile and tenuous life is and begins to fight for what she wants.

Wyatt is sweeter than I thought he was going to be, but no worries, he’s still an epic badass. After all, he does share a bloodline with Thor. But he has some adorable backstories that kept me swooning over and over and over again.

Then there’s Marcellus. Charming, vile, manipulative Marcellus. He may have been modeled after Mads Mikkelson’s Hannibal. Need I say more? Granted Marcellus isn’t a cannibal, but still super awful.

Hannibal gif.gif

Everyone gets alterations in edits. Tis the nature of edits.

No. 8 – What are your plans for this novel once you finish editing? More edits? Finding beta readers? Querying? Self-publishing? Hiding it in a dark hole forever?
Well I have a couple other manuscripts to revise and polish before I jump into editing this one, but once it’s done, I’ll send it to beta readers.

No. 9 – Share a favourite snippet!
So this comes in two parts because it’s a reoccurring gag. Full circles make me smile. XD

Here’s the origin of the gag:

Wyatt surprised me during those two weeks I was stranded on his futon. He cooked all our meals. Nothing fancy, but they were better than anything I’d had at the school cafeteria. He even joined me for a few movies, including a superhero flick about Thor. I teased him about how his arms weren’t as big as the actor’s, and he was quick to remind me that he trained for efficiency not bulk, and that if it came down to it, that actor would be useless without a stunt coordinator’s choreography.

“Way to destroy a girl’s dream,” I said, still oogling faux-Thor’s muscles on my laptop screen.

“What are you even complaining for? It’s not like your boyfriend is built like that.”

Ah, yes. Peter. Wyatt had taken plenty of jabs at Peter during my recovery, primarily whenever Peter texted. Wyatt claimed his new disdain for him was because Peter hadn’t been there when I needed him during the attack, but his quips weren’t lined with anger. They were lined with frustration.

“Peter isn’t from Thor’s bloodline,” I said. “You are, so step up your game, sir.”

“You have one of two choices: either keep me the way I am with my practical muscle mass and ability to protect you or have me bulk up to look like pretend-Thor and be less useful.”

“But you’d be nicer to look at.”

He rolled his eyes.

 

And the second mention:

Chuck and Lena went inside, leaving Wyatt and me alone in the parking lot.

“They’re a curious pair,” Wyatt said.

“They’re probably saying the same of us right now. You didn’t tell me you’ve seen Thor’s hammer.”

He gave me a sly smile. “I’ve thrown Thor’s hammer.”

My jaw dropped.

“When I was sixteen, my father gave my brother and I lessons with it. My brother was two years older than me, so the right to Mjolnir was his, but dad believed that the hammer chooses its master.”

“And?”

“And it chose my brother.”

“Well that’s lame.” I kicked a pebble that was on the ground. “Does your brother have Thor muscles? I bet your brother has Thor muscles.”

He gave me playful nudge, knocking me off kilter. I laughed.

“You’re a dick,” he said through his own throaty chuckle.

I gave a coy shrug. “I do my best.”

No. 10 – What are your writing goals and plans for 2016?
Hopefully get an agent. That would be nice. Also, I’d like to get solid, polished drafts of books 2 & 3 done as well. Maybe a rough draft of 4. Who knows? I’m not putting limits on it. Lol


Well, I hoped you enjoyed learning more about my 2015 NaNo Project over the course of this link-up. I know I’ve enjoyed sharing… did I mention that I love this book?!

Thanks for reading!
