As you’ve probably guessed from the lack of recent posts, I’ve been a little swamped lately–with writing, with work, with Downton Abbey (yes, my priorities are in order). But Downton‘s wrapped up now, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel with my revisions, and I hope to have some more material to share here on the blog next week.
In the meantime, here are a few goodies to keep you occupied!
1. How writing a novel is like falling in love, Jane Austen-style: From blind Lydia-Wickham love, to Elizabeth-Darcy hate, to Elizabeth-Darcy true love, this clever blog post by Beth Revis is spot-on about both the writing/revising process and Pride & Prejudice. What’s not to love?
2. Fair Coin is coming! I’m counting the days until E.C. Myers‘s debut YA sci-fi novel, Fair Coin drops (it’s coming in early March), but if you click “like” on the Pyr Young Adult page on Facebook, you can read the first three chapters now! I did this last week, and it left me chomping at the bit for the full story of Ephraim and the coin that makes his wishes come true…with freaky, dire consequences, of course. 😉
You want more, you say? Well, here’s the book trailer! (What’s a book trailer, you ask? It’s like a movie trailer, but for a…oh, you can figure this one out, can’t you?)
3. And one more video, just for fun…
