Where We Are

Hey, you guys! Today we thought it'd be fun to give you a little update on what's going on in our writerly lives. So without further ado:

I'm working on a YA contemporary romance that has hit 10k! I'm sadly working a bit on the slow side because I'm balancing 3 internships. 1) book publicity 2) a literary agency internship 3) an e-marketing agency. I'm keeping the pitch under wraps for now, but it's one I started in high school and has stayed in my mind all this time! But just a hint. My girl is a tad on the skanky side and oh-so-fun compared to my shy-with-love protagonist from IT'S COOP NOT CUPID.

I'm drafting a new book! Code name LUCKY NUMBER 7 (cuz it's my 7th manuscript) I'm having an absolute BLAST with it. LN7 is about half done at 32k, and I'm hoping to finish it by the first on November.
I'm querying my sci-fi BEYOND CHAINS AND STARS, and tweaking EDGE OF THE FALLS a little. And I've got a really fun contemporary idea germinating in my head. :) Aside from that, I've just started an editorial internship with a publisher and that is very fun and challenging.

My latest project is a YA fantasy about how a teenage boy becomes magic last hope at surviving. It’s the one thing that the Elven Queen doesn’t want, and so she has sent her ghostly assassin to destroy him before he can wake the magic within himself. The story is currently entitled Isle of Exiles and after what seemed like an eternity of world building that I totally hate to do, I’m finally writing the story. It’s a slow process due to my lack of time, but I’m making progress. My hope is to have a full first draft done in the next month or so. It’ll be interesting to see this come to life, especially with my new species called Anrosians

So that's what's going on with US! What's up in your writerly life?


  1. Now that my Hidden Tiger is out in the open, I'm playing with something else writerly - that I'm going to keep to myself for now, just in case it ends up being total drivel and in the 'must try harder' file - and I'm organising another trip in the New Year (which might just come with stories!)

  2. Sounds like you guys are crazy busy. Good luck with all your projects.

  3. Now that the idea of my new YA romance has gelled in my head, I'm ready to go. You girls sound busy...

    1. We are. Auzy on the other hand....totally lazy. ;)

  4. LMAO guys---for future reference Auzy is a guy! :) And I think he gets sad when he's called a girl ;)

  5. Sounds like there's some juicy goodies coming out of your writerly minds.

  6. Wow you guys sound busy! And very creative :D
