What story I’m currently working on:
This is always what happens when I find a story I jive with. I actually don’t know when I crammed all these words in, because it was a busy as hell week, but I hit 24k in Taking Root, because something is just flowing with that story. The characters jump off the page and just carry the story away with them. Soon, I’ll be at the halfway point, and I’m hoping things will keep amping up from there so I can race to the finish line of this book! And I tiptoed up to 2k with Hypnotizing Beat, a story I’m starting to wade into again and adoring the return to that snarky, fae-filled universe.
What I’m editing/marketing:
As per the usual, it’s a waiting game. I have a bunch of submissions out for A Card of Shadows, the proposal for Taking Root out, and I also started resubmitting the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles and Forged Alliances in the wake of Loose Id’s closure on Monday. I’m also putting a dent into the edits on the fae novella for Legends of the Veil, since I have an editor booked for June! In other news, the other steampunk boxset Of Tinkers and Technomancers is in, Gaslights and Graves, just went live on TUESDAY!

Line of the week:
Fuck, who didn’t own more than one mug?
Bitches in WitSec who lived by their lonesome, that’s who. Danny slammed her cupboard shut, staring at the assembly of three soup bowls, one coffee mug, and three glasses she’d rummaged up. When her last two mugs broke, she just hadn’t seen much use in replacing. After all, she was the only one ever using them.
