Can you believe it’s already April 1st? Now that sounds like an April Fools’ Day joke. But despite all the craziness in the world, I’ve still been working through it all. I finished writing, revising, editing, proofing, and formatting Taming the Alpha two weeks ago. Yesterday, I received a proof copy:
Isn’t it so pretty? My cover artist makes magic every time. And thank you so much to my author friend Jessi Elliott for showing it off in her writer sprint live stream last night (completely surprising me). P.S. She has a fantasy romance trilogy out (Twisted Fate, Twisted Gift, and Twisted Desire) and another book in the series, so you should definitely check that out (after you’ve finished reading mine, of course).
But let’s move on to the present. I have two final papers and a presentation proposal due this month, and 4 finals, 1 paper, and 1 presentation next month. Then I’ll be done with undergrad. So, I’ll definitely be busy with school work this month.
And yet, like almost every year, I am signing up for April’s Camp NaNoWriMo once again even though I normally have much better success in July… you know, when I’m on summer break and have much less work to do on a regular basis. But when has that ever stopped me from setting kind of crazy goals for myself? Answer: never.
If you’re not already subscribed to my mailing list (although I’m not sure why you aren’t yet—you get a free book, after all, so subscribe down below), you may not know that I’m switching genres for my next project. After a trilogy of Young Adult (bordering on New Adult) paranormal romance, I’m tackling the first book of a New Adult SciFi romance trilogy: Obscure Origin. This project is leapfrogging ahead of The Matchmakers, a Young Adult dystopian romance, which had been my next slated book for a long time until certain circumstances made me change my mind. Anyway, if you want to see my progress so far, you can see the meter below.
If you’re a writer, are you participating in Camp NaNo this month? If you’re a reader, do you have any books you can’t wait to read in April? And what has been the best way you’re keeping sane during the coronavirus so far?
