This week has been majorly stressful, but I managed to get the ARCs for Throne in the Dark out! If you're interested in being an advanced reader, and you use Story Origin, you can sign up here. To celebrate getting the final manuscript completed, I messed around on Canva, and made a little graphic from… Continue reading Throne in the Dark – ARCs are Out!
I didn't keep up with #FantasyIndiesMay and I've missed some #FantasyIndiesJune, but I do have some posts from Twitter I thought might be good to share here. At this rate, you might be able to read the entirety of this trilogy through posts! Just kidding, not really, but I do hope these entice you to… Continue reading More Fantasy Indie Posts
I'm in a great mood this morning, and I'm doing #FantasyIndiesJune on Twitter (I did okay-ish in May), and I've probably already shared this quote before, but I'm doing it again. My view on these lines from Howl's Moving Castle are steeped in an overall feminist reading (sorry, not sorry, can't help it). This could… Continue reading A Little Inspiration
I did this for The Weary Traveler and The Wayward Deed, so it's only fair the final book in the series, The Willful Inheritor, gets a turn. However, since I had a a lot of computer and software issues in finishing up this book, there's a pretty good chance this post won't cover every artsy-fartsy… Continue reading Art References in The Willful Inheritor
Today I'm just here to implore you to listen to some music. It's amongst my favorite in terms of genre: comedy. Except "comedy" isn't really a genre of music, it's just how you interpret lyrics. The actual genre is like synth/alt/indie, I guess? I don't know, it's pretty transcendent, but if you like good music… Continue reading Listen To This!
A lot! I play The Sims in my free time. It can be an incredibly chill game, or you can cause a lot of chaos. I usually spend my time building houses and creating people and crafting whole little worlds because, duh, of course I do. So of course I built Moonlit Shores Manor from… Continue reading How Much Of A Nerd Am I?
Lorelei is an artist. Well, a failed one, at least. Because of this, sometimes she sees the world through paintings and sculptures. There isn't anything obscure in The Weary Traveler, but I thought I'd post about the handful of references made in case any of them were new to my Dear Readers. No spoilers here,… Continue reading Art References in The Weary Traveler
This movie became an instant favorite of mine as soon as we were done watching. I love Taika Waititi and just about everyone in this cast, and boy did it ever exceed expectations. This is how you do a funny movie about WWII, this is how you approach sensitive topics with humor and still make… Continue reading Please Watch Jojo Rabbit
I finished tweaking all the mood boards for the core characters in The Vacancy Series, so I figured I'd throw them up in one big post for funsies. All put together on Canva.com with the free images there. Lorelei Conrad Ziah Grier Hana Ren
I really love playing around with Canva when I've hit a creative wall. I mean, I like making stuff on there when I'm on a creative roll too, but it's especially helpful when I'm all "meh" or when I've been working all day and I still want to do something in the evening, but I… Continue reading Character Mood Board – Conrad from The Vacancy Series
