WHAT I'M READING
This is one of my favorite times of year - crisp autumn days, chilly nights. Perfect for curling up in front of the fire with a cup of coffee and a good book. A good, creepy book.
I'm currently reading THE NEAR WITCH by Victoria Schwab as part of the YA Buccaneers October Reading Mutiny.
I just finished my amazing CP Dawn Klehr's YA debut, THE CUTTING ROOM FLOOR, which had plenty of mystery and creep-factor.
And then there's the Ruby Red trilogy. More on this shortly.
WHAT I'M WRITING
I have to be honest and say that, for one reason or another, I haven't written much since finishing a recent round of revisions in mid-September. I'm excited to get back into revisions for BEAUTIFUL BIRD, SING ON now that the weather has turned and I'm finding inspiration in my surroundings, especially since...
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO
...I just made a quick weekend trip to Duluth, the setting of BBSO and one of my favorite places in the world.
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
Mary Casanova, a Minnesota author of many picture books, American Girl books, and the YA historical novel FROZEN, happened to be at Barnes and Noble in Duluth this weekend. She spent a great deal of time with me and my college girlfriends after her reading. She was so very gracious, kind, and encouraging of me. She was absolutely wonderful and our chat was very inspiring.
Finally, I've spent the last 10 days or so reading and listening to the Ruby Red trilogy by Kerstin Gier. The final book, EMERALD GREEN, was released on October 8 and I found it on the shelf a few days early.
After I finished (and re-read), I began the trilogy on audio book. I love them even more, if that's even possible.
These books, these characters, have been a bright spot in a somewhat dismal month. I look forward to listening and catch bits and pieces wherever I can.
I just can't get enough. Will I ever be able to stop reading them?
What's up with you? I'm off from work today so hopefully will be able to make the rounds and say hello!
