What's Happening #2


What's Happening is a weekly recap post every Thursday or Friday, in which I talk about what I'm reading, writing, blogging about, and what's been going on in my life. It takes the place of my former weekly recap post, Update Thursday




The Perfect Hope by Nora Roberts {GoodReads}




 


Will & Kate by Alice Hudson {GoodReads}

Mind Games by Kiersten White {GoodReads}

Swimming at Night by Lucy Clarke {GoodReads}



I posted a Stacking the Shelves post/vlog with all the books I got in the last couple weeks.


This year my debut novel, Blue Sky Days, turned one! To celebrate the anniversary, I did four days of giveaways:



This past week I finished the first round of revisions for my third novel, Waiting for the Storm. My alpha reader did her first read-through, and after another one from both of us, I'll be sending the book out to beta readers. I talk more about that in my weekly writing update post on my author blog.




*I finished the mock-up for the cover of Waiting for the Storm and will be buying the rights to the image and finishing the cover soon. I've planned the cover reveal for February 4th-6th. If you'd like to participate, please email me at irishstar_83@hotmail.com or leave a comment below with your email. I'll email you the cover and synopsis on February 3rd and you can post it anytime between the 4th and the 6th. 

*Not much else going on here. A lot of work, some errands, and that's about it. I haven't had much time for reading this last week (I failed miserably at Bout of Books 6.0), and I feel like my to do list just keeps growing and never getting smaller. I'm kind of stressed (ok really stressed and incredibly irritable the last few days because of it), but I'm hoping once the book goes out to beta readers, I can schedule some posts on the blog and just take a step back to relax and get some stuff done around the house. 

*EDIT: Waiting for the Storm is now live on GoodReads! Be sure to check it out and add it (pretty please)!

How has your week been? What's new?

  2. I'll be interested to see what you think of the Kate and William book. I've been wondering about it.
