It’s officially my favorite time of year: fall, football season, new book releases. It’s the time of new beginnings (even though the plants may be dying), and I am hoping to take advantage with writing a new book soon.
But first, what was I up to you this month? Well, hold on to your hats…
What I Read
GRAND TOTAL: 7
The Dazzling Heights by Katherine McGee
The Host by Stephenie Meyer
Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris

One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake

What I Wrote
Well not much actual writing took place this month, but my brain is exhausted! I’ve been querying like crazy to moderate success so far – everyone keep your fingers crossed – but more so, I’ve been brainstorming and fleshing out new story ideas. My new goal is to finish book #3 by my birthday in March…
In addition to some preliminary research and outlining with the hero’s journey, I created these aesthetics for inspiration. It was a blast, but instead of helping me decide I am now equally excited about all three!
What do you think? Have a favorite or any tips on how to choose between story ideas?
October is gearing up to be an equally exciting and busy month, but as always, I will be making time to focus on my next story and read some great books:
- A Map for Wrecked Girls by Jessica Taylor
- The Cottingley Secret by Hazel Gaynor
- The New Orleans Voodoo Handbook by Kenaz Filan
- As much Harry Potter as I can manage because it’s October and because if you’re not rereading this series every 5 years then you’re doing life wrong
What are you most excited about for fall? Let me know below!
