Happy Thursday, guys! I'm soo happy it's almost the weekend lol.
Are any of you writers? If so, are you a pantser or a plotter? (And for those of you like me who had no idea what that means and had to Google it, a pantser is someone who writes by the seat of their pants, making a story up as they go along. While a plotter plans a story first then writes.)
If you couldn't already tell by all the journals in the picture, I'm a plotter. I map out everything before I start: the world, the timeline, the characters, the storyline, even the main scenes. Then I write based on my outline, with plenty of room for my characters to surprise me like they love to do. This set of journals are just a few of the ones I've used to plot out the Star Crossed series. (Yes, yes there are more. 😂)

Late for Kindy most mornings because adventure comes first! Catch & release job, this wobbegon was in his crab pot, but created much stoke for Reef. #fathomsbelow #islandlife #straddie

"Fathoms below! Fathoms below! From hence wayward westerlies blow. Where Triton is king and his merpeople sing in mysterious fathoms below!" 🌊🐟🐟


Ariel's Undersea Adventure opened #onthisdayindisneyhistory in California Adventure back in 2011. Anyone else remember when this King Triton statue was where Pixie Hollow is now? And they had an Ariel meet-and-great? That was one of my favorite spots in Disneyland when I was little 😍

Happy Saturday, bookworms! What are y'all up to today? I spent most of the day laying around the house reading Lost Crow Conspiracy. (Matyas and the praetheria, oh my!) Though I did get my daughter's next birthday party all planned. Check my story if you're curious about the theme! I figured I had best get all the rest I can before my second round of FBt edits gets here. Any day now!!
****
Day 2: #junebookstagram18 (sunset ombre) - these colors matched the covers of the Star Crossed series so perfectly I couldn't help but show them off. 😍
Day 2: #lillyricalmashup ("tale as old as time" fairy tales - did you know that the Star Crossed series is a myth-meets-fairy tale retelling of Cinderella based on the story of Rhodopis?
Day 4: #1000perfectnotes (a debut novel) - my debut novel was Fathoms Below. Sooo hard to believe book 2 is out already and book 3 will be here in October! 😱

This is just a #mermay dump I guess. This was made with a #spirograph . #artdump #mermay2018 #mermaid #mermaidtail #ink #gelpens #ocean #fantasyart #fantasy #thesea #water reminds me of a kids book illustration or something. #art #tothedepths #fathomsbelow also reminds of a #tattoo , the color and style or something. #crayola #thefinetouch #coloredpencils #mermaidtattoo

Writers: do you have a favorite writing snack? It might be generic, but I love a good cup of coffee when I'm writing, especially if it has a spice like pumpkin or cinnamon added to it. Yummy!

Day 29: #igwritersmay (writer habits)
Day 29: #allthebooksmay (chosen one or lost princess) - both, though I have a special soft spot for chosen one, bc that's what the Star Crossed series is 💔☄️🤓

What makes you feel strong?
For me, it's working out.🏋️ It's one of my favorite things to do, besides read and write lol. I love the rush of adrenaline, the feel of the sweat rolling down my body, the pull of my muscles and fighting to keep my breathing even. But most of all, I love how powerful it makes me feel, like for a little while, even in this sometimes insane world, I am a warrior in complete control of my own destiny.
That's also why I love reading and writing books about strong heroines, especially if they didn't start out strong. It's so easy to feel weak, to feel powerless, to feel less than enough, when everyone around you is telling you that you can't, you shouldn't, if only you were more like so and so. But just like Mare, Mira, Audrey Rose, and Cather, we can rise up, stand firm in the face of disbelief, and say yes we can, yes we should, yes we are more than enough just the way we are. So today, whatever you do or wherever you go, put on your mantle of awesomeness and kick some butt, bc you are beautiful. You are powerful. You are a warrior. Who's with me? ❤️⚔️

Isn't it crazy how time flies? My daughter just finished the third grade. Fathoms Between comes out in only 5 more months. And I've been on Instagram for over a year now and just realized that I've never done an about me post! So, here is a not-too-shabby selfie plus a few facts about yours truly.
1. My full name is Laura Lynn Holt. The Laura comes from a song my parents used to listen to. The Lynn is after my mom's middle name.
2. I have blue eyes, brown hair, super-pale skin that burns way too easily, and am 5'1", aka short.
3. I am the author of the Star Crossed series: Fathoms Below and Fathoms Above (which are already published) and Fathoms Between (which releases October 2nd).
4. I have one daughter named Rayne who is the light of my life and second only to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit in my heart. (Yes, I am also a Christian lol, but not one of those crazy judgemental ones who think being saved means that you get to look down your nose at everybody else and throw bibles at them. I've actually HAD a bible thrown at me once by one such person. It was not fun.)
5. I am a HUGE fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (ask me anything! I will wow you with my well of useless fandom knowledge lol), coffee (I am like a zombie in the mornings without it), and working out (to the point where I do it one hour every day, seven days a week. Addicted? Who, me? 😂)

Best places to read:
1. On a throne of books, surrounded by your fictional subjects, who massage your feet, feed you grapes, and fan you with palm leaves while you turn the pages
2. In the library of a drafty Scottish castle by the light of a roaring fire
3. On the beach with your fins in the water, because where else would a mermaid read?
****
Okay, so I don't actually read any of those places lol, though I always take a book (or five) with me when I go to the beach, and I think it'd be really cool to build a throne out of books like dark faerie tales did. Normally I read (and write) right here, curled up on my couch with my favorite blanket. It's the central part of my house, so I dont miss anything, and the lighting is perfect! Plus, I like background noise when I edit, and it's easiest to pop an episode of Buffy in and turn the sound down low here. 😂 Where is your favorite place to read, or, if you're an author, write?
****
Day 23: #igwritersmay (proudest moment) - this one right here. Seeing all three of my book babies together. 😁😭
Day 23: #lilgettingtoknowyou (book that made you lol) - is it weird that I laugh at my own book? There's just this one part in FBt with Cather and Hades that gets me every time!

Reasons to love fairy tale retellings:
1. They take age-old stories we know and love and turn them into something fresh and new.
2. There are princesses and princes, but not always in the traditional sense.
3. Sometimes there are DRAGONS. 🐉
4. They don't always end with "happily ever after," and who doesn't love a good twist?
5. They're books, and all books deserve to be held and read and hugged and loved and petted and displayed on shiny shelves for all to see.
6. The authors who write them adore them bc they are our precious sparkly book babies and if you read them we will adore you too and send you treats and hugs.

Happy #socksunday, bookies! I am so thrilled to finally have some cute bookish socks to take pictures with!! (No more book-sock envy for me lol.) These blue library card socks are from @outofprint , and not only are they adorable, but they are super soft and comfy! Win-win!
Plus, they match the cover of my #currentread, Geekerella by @_ashposton . This book is so much fun, you guys! It's light and witty and full of fan-girlish fabulousness. It reminds me of my own fangirl days back in hs when I kept a Buffy blog. 😂🙈
What is your all-time favorite fairy tale retelling and why?
****
Day 20: #allthebooksmay (best title) - To Kill a Kingdom. I was hooked before I even saw the cover or knew what it was about!
Day 20: #igwritersmay (book spines)
Day 20: #lilgettingtoknowyou (book I've reread the most) - do my books count? Bc bt writing them and editing them, I've lost count of how many times I've read them. 😂

The patrons at the most recent performance of #TemeculaPerformingArtsCompany's production of #TheLittleMermaid were all clapping their hands and shaking their fins once the show's cast began to sing #UnderTheSea! Doesn't seeing this photo from the midst of all the excitement captured by @ShawnaSarnowskiPhotography make you want to get up dance too? You're in luck, because there are still four more chances to catch the show this weekend but you need to hurry because these performances are almost #SoldOut. We'll be waiting for you #FathomsBelow!

Never showed y’all how the paint turned out in our master bedroom. I’m really digging it. Husband is going to make beams for the ceiling this summer. We have a jar started to go junking this Fall in Roundtop for new furniture.

“There’s mermaids out there in the bottomless blue
An’ it’s hey to the starboard, heave ho!
Watch out for ‘em, lad, or you’ll go to your ruin
Mysterious fathoms below!” #MayWithSteph18 – Fathoms Below: teal books
Let’s face it: I just wanted an excuse to post books of my favorite color. Teal is good for mermaids, yeah?
I’m a jewel-tones kind of person, so when I think “teal” I think “deep” first. But I love all the shades in the teal family!
QOTD: Do you prefer deep tones or pastels? * * *
#MayBookstagram18 – Library or Bookstore? – used to be “library” but now is “bookstore” though my wallet prefers when it’s the “library bookstore” 😁

🎶"I'll tell you a tale of the bottomless blue... of mysterious fathoms below..."🎶
🐚
This is my absolute FAVORITE color (if you couldn't already tell). My aunt just gave me this mermaid tail mug for Mother's Day, and it just so happened to match my home decor AND it was perfect for day 14 of #maywithsteph18 ~ Fathoms below: teal books.
🐚
Though I wouldn't exactly call this color "teal." How about "seascape blue?" Or "mermaid tail aqua?" After all, my favorite color deserves something far more fabulous than plain old "teal."
🐚
I'm finally recovering from the #writingunleashed retreat with @cjredwine and @maryweberauthor ~ I learned so much and am still processing it all. I'm already anticipating next year's getaway. I learned more at this small retreat than at any large conference I've attended.
🐚
But for now my brain needs to breathe, which means it's time for a good read. I'm thinking about picking up #theselection again. Just because I love it so much. 🐚
Speaking of which, is anyone else anxiously awaiting the day we will see The Selection on screen?
🐚
This series always reminded me of a much better played out episode of "The Bachelor." Except I can't stand to watch reality TV for the most part. But I'll take America and Maxon any day of the week. Love them.
🐚
What are you reading? Don't forget to follow @stephaniehwarner and join the fairy tale fun all month long! One day very soon I'll be using her awesome May challenge to reveal my 2019 fairy tale retelling. Did I mention the reveal comes with a giveaway?
🐚
#mayinbooks18 ~ A book that reminds you of a song or TV shows.
#allthebooksmay ~ currently reading.

How often do you rearrange your shelves? I used to do mine only once or twice a year, but lately it's been more like once every two weeks. 😂
Don't forget today is the last day to enter my #giveaway for a paperback ARC of Fathoms Between plus some super cool, unique book swag! See my original post from last Sunday for full details.

📷 @cale0601 Thanks for the blacktips!
When I lived in Hawaii, I learned that two worlds exist. Most people only know the world above the water. Once I experienced the world below, I wanted to visit at every opportunity. Life is different down there, controlled by factors of currents, tides, salinity, light, and fierce competition. In the world above, only birds enjoy a fully three-dimensional space, and the rest are grounded. Ocean life, on the other hand, experiences bewildering environmental complexity. Respect the Great Deep. It's truly awesome.

I just couldn't resist making a #bookish rainbow featuring all three of my book babies this morning! The cover colors were too pretty to pass up. ❤️💙💚💛💜
How was y'alls Saturday? I had such a relaxing day! Other than workout and a few little chores, I did absolutely nothing but work on writing stuff and sit on the couch with my nose buried in a book. I finished This Splintered Silence (sooo incredible! I'm still reeling from the ending! Totally didn't see it coming!!) and now I'm reading The Rogue Queen.
Today I'm refreshed and rejuvenated and ready to tackle all my chores and errands. 💪🛍️
Also, that giveaway I've been hinting about? A little birdie told me it might be happening later today, so keep those eyes on my feed! ❤️☄️

Day 6: #maybookstagram18 (rainbow or wave)
Day 6: #lilgettingtoknowyou (favorite OTP) - I know as the author I'm not supposed to have a favorite, but I'll always ship Cather and Hermes a little more than I do Cather and Peter. 😉

Finally posting the #NYMapped challenge meant for April 11th! Fathom & Sons was my favorite candle in the #mappedbymaggie box! Since I live downtown, I chose city in woods vs. city, although honestly I’d love nothing more than to frolic around the woods (shapeshifting wolves optional).
🖤
I’ve never reread the Scorpio Races, even though the readathon for it happens every year, but getting this candle reminded me how much that book deserves a reread!
🖤
What books have you been wanting to reread lately? Besides the Scorpio Races, I’m planning to reread all of #annamariemclemore’s books this year, hopefully before her fourth book comes out!

I see three Disney Princesses in this picture! Seeing this picture was like a dream come true! Sadie and Jacey are pictured here with Jodi Benson who is the voice of Ariel in The Little Mermaid. Ariel is my favorite Disney Princess, and there’s no doubt Jodi has placed a huge impact on my life as Sadie and the Disney and Broadway communities have! 💕 If there’s a Little Mermaid Broadway revival in a few years, my vote goes to Miss Sadie to play the titular role! 🧜‍♀️ @sadiesink_ @jodi.benson

Siren Cloe was actually my first Mersona. An image of her came to me in a dream which I crudely drew out. Someone (on #gaiaonline ) was nice enough to redraw the image for me and eventually she came to life for the 2011 Coney Island Mermaid Parade. Being a devious creature she lurks in the depths and rarely makes an appearance nowadays. Don't let her bright shades of pink fool you into thinking she's a sugary sweet Mermaid, the most dangerous sea creatures often have the brightest colors. "Watch out young lads or you'll go to your ruin in the mysterious fathoms below!"
