Today I’m launching a new series on my blog called “Snapshot” where I’ll give you a little glimpse of some random things I’ve been up to. I think its fun to get to know bloggers I follow a little better, so I thought this might be a fun way to do that.
What I had for Dinner last night: A Veggie Curry Dish. I love all kinds of curry. Can’t get enough.
Last Movie I Saw: Divergent and I thought they did an awesome job! I was totally intrigued, even though I knew what was going to happen since I’d read the book already. Awesome flick. Go check it out if you haven’t.
Delicious Reads Collaboration: The amazing, over-the-top book club I belong to, the Delicious Reads, is ramping up their website and I was asked to contribute to the their blog once or twice a month. Take a look at the Delicious Reads Contributor Line-Up! I’m really excited about being asked to participate! Kelly Dearth is the creator of the whole thing- just wait until you see some of the things she has planned! You can follow the Delicious Reads Facebook Page or our Delicious Reads Instagram Page to check out all the fun shenanigans. We’re posting three times a week now, so go check it out!
What I’m Reading:
Audio books- As I’ve mentioned before, this is my go-to way of getting through my 50-books-a-year challenge. I’m reading “The Snowman” by Jo Nesbo, which is an international thriller and I’m also in the middle of the second book in the Maze Runner Series, “The Scortch Trials,” by James Dashner (the movie for the first book, The Maze Runner, is coming out in September!).
On my iphone I’m reading the hilarious, “Let’s pretend this never happened,” by Jenny Lawson
On my nook I’m finishing “Rogue Alliance,” by Michelle Bellon.
I’m also reading an ARC of “Paranoia” by J. R. Johnson I won at an Authorpalooza a fews weeks ago! So that’s really exciting.
What I’m Writing: I’m in the middle of revising the first draft of a book called Project Evie, that I’m loving. My character totally ran away with this book so I’m excited to be working on it.
Getting Ready For:
Storymakers Writing Conference is at the end of the month and I’m participating in a first chapter contest, a publication primer and I’m also pitching my book to an agent. I’m really excited to participate, meet other authors and learn more about writing.
Finishing up a Manuscript Swap- I’m participating in a four week intensive manuscript swap with three other writers and I’m learning so much from them and all of their helpful advice.
CABO! I can’t even tell you how excited I am for an upcoming trip to Cabo San Lucas. Margaritas, the beach, fish tacos and all sorts of crazy fun. I seriously can’t wait.
Best Part of my Day: Playing with my amazing son, who is so much fun I could die of happiness. I’m the happiest mama ever.
I hope you’re all having a great week! Let me know what you’ve been up to! Anything I should know about? Have any good book recommendations? What are you most excited about lately? See ya next week!
