I forgot to update yesterday with my progress, but things are going strong.

Today I’m supposed to introduce my world.

There’s a lot going on, but this picture is my favorite inspiration.

This is from a national park in Brazil. In my world, there’s an entire ocean in those pools. Right now it’s tiny, but that might change. We’ll see.

Everything is either taking place on the sand or under the water. I love it.

Still pushing along! Did you know how hard it is to keep going?

Book update: 13 days ago, my publisher's second edit arrived in my inbox! I'm happy to report that this time around, there was less red print to wade through, however, I still had a significant amount of work ahead of me. With my trip to Europe on the horizon, I decided to buckle down and finish before I left. I didn't want it hanging over my head during my vacation. Well, last night, I finalized my edits and turned it in. What a relief! I'm so excited, not only to be finished with the second edit, but also because the book is looking sooooo good. It's polished and professional and I can't wait for you and/or your kids to read it!! 📚
I purchased this book: the Chicago Manual of Style, to help me with my current edits and my future novels. All published works need to meet the standards of this book. I didn't get a professional degree in writing, I'm a nurse. I can give a shot, and bandage a wound, but I struggle with knowing where to put a freaking comma. Anyone else familiar with this book? Talk about some deep (boring) reading. I recommend caution when reading it. Also, make sure you have a Webster Dictionary beside you. 📚
Hopefully only one more round of edits to go! It feels weird to have a few weeks of free time. What do you fill your free time with? 📚

After a week of migraines and writer's block, I was waaay behind in my word count. I put a dent in it, but it looks like I'll be joining the #5amwritersclub for the rest of the month. Man, I wish I liked coffee 😪

I reviewed this about a month ago on my blog, but for those that didn't see that, this is a spooky little middle grade novel! 👻
While it was a bit slow to start, I did find this to be a really imaginative read. Might work best as a read aloud or for more advanced readers! 📚
Have you read The Bone Garden? Do you like middle grade novels? 💀

First... Swipe and look at the last two panels. I have never before seen such a breathtaking display of movement in a graphic novel. This Was Our Pact is worth reading for those few pages alone.

Second, @heyryana has made a masterpiece. I wish I had 50 copies of this book so I could rip out the pages and frame them on my walls. The two-page spreads rival most art galleries I’ve seen! They manage to capture the wonder that I first felt reading about Lucy stumbling into Narnia or Milo running up to the Castle in the Air - huge cinematic moments that happen every few pages in this marvellous book. And move over Totoro, I have a new favourite giant fuzzy friend!
The story starts out as a group of young kids try to bike further than anyone before them... and what happens beyond that. Hint: it’s a magical otherland of awe.
I don’t want all my reviews to be overly positive... but I think this deserves 10/5 bikes 🚲🚲🚲🚲🚲🚲🚲🚲🚲🚲.

We got a new bookshelf! 😍 So glad to get this pile of precariously stacked books in our bedroom (by my husband’s side of the bed - sorry, hon!) onto shelves. Now I just need twenty more of these... 🤓

(I spent a couple days wanting a pet gorilla after reading this - baby Ivan is so cute and lovable!🤷🏼‍♀️☺️)

I finally worked out how to do a full #Repost with @regram.app and I can't resist sharing this lovely post by the brilliant @amhowellwrites writer of the magical Garden of Lost Secrets... Thank you so very much, @amhowellwrites 💚💚... Thank you @stripesbooks @nicolapenfoldauthor for this gorgeous proof of Where the World turns Wild, publishing in February 2020. I actually couldn’t wait for the hard copy proof to arrive so read this on my kindle last week and it’s crazily good and I predict this book will be huge! It tells the story of Juniper and her brother Bear who long to escape their cage of a city. When they do they learn there’s cruelty in nature as well as beauty. But will they find the home they are searching for? It’s a fantastic debut with the feel of a classic adventure with an important and timely ecological warning about protecting our natural world. I know this is a book I will read again and keep on my bookshelf permanently. Can’t wait to see the final cover design as I reckon it will be very special! 🌿🍂🌳🌲🐛🐝🕸

#nanoornot19 challenge Day 11: introduce your world
My story starts in the Earth's core where trolls have been hiding for centuries with the earth jewels they stole. Most of the story, however, takes place in small town Idaho where a naughty troll was banished for attempting to steal a rock from the Royal treasury. He can't return to "Heaven city" until he, gasp, helps a human. He finds a thirteen year old internet troll to simultaneously help and curse. Along the way, we find out that troll magic is very different from what our antagonist has been led to believe, mainly, the source of troll magic isn't tied to blood lines. Back in Idaho, the world is very similar to ours with a young teenager using screens to hide from her very real problems.

Just a friendly reminder that your posted book reviews on retailer sites like Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and on reader hangouts like GoodReads, are HUGELY helpful for authors! Not because we read them (some of us don’t), but because reviews raise a book’s visibility. More reviews = more appearances of a book in lists such as “people also looked at...” etc. More reviews = inclusion in newsletters. More reviews = consideration for better placement. Basically, more reviews = good things, helpful things, important things for the authors and books you love. So! If you’ve read and love #alltheimpossiblethings and haven’t yet, would you consider leaving a short review somewhere? And if you’ve left a review on Goodreads, would you consider copy/pasting it into Amazon and/or Barnes and Noble? I appreciate it so much!

#QOTD: What's the weather like where you live today?

We got a decent amount of snow last night, meaning that the ground is now covered! I'm not a huge fan of driving in the snow, but 🤷 I don't really have a choice. 😂 This book I plan on reading this month for the Book Riot challenge, which I have almost completed. Did way better than I did last year. *

NEW LISTING! Here's a clip of the front and back of the new-to-the-Etsy-shop mug featuring my original watercolor design and illustration of The Mysterious Benedict Society. For those unaware, first I sketch out the drawing by hand on watercolor paper and then I watercolor paint. It's great fun and a way I love to relax while thinking about and enjoying my favorite reads. The Mysterious Benedict Society is one of my very favorite book series. If you haven't read it yet then you'd better get to it. If you want to sip on some tea, coffee or hot chocolate while doing so, well, here's something to fangear with!

I didn't get as much writing done as I wanted to this weekend. But I saw lots of plants and spent time outside and that's brain fuel, right? RIGHT?!?!?!

I used to think that graphic novels were just drama-filled comics. Books that are only read for pure enjoyment. But after recently reading some amazing graphic novels-escpecially the Okay Witch-they changed my thoughts completely! The read was full of magic, thrill and a valuable lesson everyone needs to learn.
You don’t find your place in the world.
You find your courage to be yourself wherever you are.

Moth is that somewhat ordinary girl who’s stuck in the shadow’s of everyone else. And when she’s not invisible to the world, she’s the target for brutal teasing.
So that day when Moth decides she’s fed up with the insults that are spat at her for just being a quiet, fantasy nerd is the day her powers come. The day she learns she’s a witch. The day she realizes it’s time to embrace her quirky self.
But it’s not that easy. Especially when your mother-who’s also a witch-forbids all forms of magic. But who listens to their parents?

I loved watching Moth grow as a heroic witch and a confident girl. She didn’t wait for the world to change. She looked right in the eyes of insecurity and said…
“I am Moth, the okay witch!”
