What I’m Reading
Finished beta reading Miss Cole‘s excellent (and spooky!) ghost story WIP last week! It’s sooo good you guys, I can’t wait to see where she takes it.

Also, check out her story Colony, which is kicking butt in the PitchMadness contest right now!
What I’m Writing
One of my amazing beta readers, Mike Kalar, sent back feedback for my WIP BROKEN THINGS which has got me really fired up about the next big edit. I’m really looking forward to getting back to it now… he’s breathed so much new life into a world I was getting tired of. It’s amazing.
But first, I’ve got notebooks upon notebooks filled with scribbles that I haven’t typed up. So March is catch-up month: time to type up all my handwritten work.
What Works For Me
Beta readers are the BEST. I say this a lot but it never stops being true.
Also, I took another art break before getting back into writing, and wound up with a fairly decent “experimental” piece of BROKEN THINGS protagonist Anna in a style similar to the robots from the same WIP.
(If you’re confused by her legs, she wears a metal support skeleton.)
What Else I’ve Been Up To
Today I managed to catch up with Laura Lam in the real world, which is very exciting! Her latest book, FALSE HEARTS, is coming out in early 2016 and I can’t waaaiiiittt. *grabby hands* It’s ORPHAN BLACK meets INCEPTION, and it’s going to be soooo good.
Don’t worry, you’ll see me talking about it A LOT nearer to release time. Laura’s one of the nicest writers out there, and seeing the well-deserved hype gathering for her work is such a fun experience.
