The Order of the Eternal Sun Launch Party

I can’t believe it’s already time for The Order of the Eternal Sun to be out! It seems like I was just writing it! The official release date is August 23rd, but I’ll be at my favorite local indie bookstore, Fiction Addiction on Saturday, August 13th signing copies. Drop by if you’re in town! Almost as good as the books is the fact that there will be FOOD. :)

Ready. Set. WRITE! 2015 Week Seven

RSW6

 

How I did on last week’s goals:

As I’ve seen happen to many others participating in RSW, my goals had to change when I got comments back from my CP! This is on THE ORDER OF THE ETERNAL SUN–the second book in my Arcana series that I already turned into my editor. Luckily, I still have plenty of time to make edits on it, so I just turned in a draft to make deadline, and now I can take my time polishing it :).

I met my other goals by putting aside GONE WITH THE WIND briefly to read THE DARKEST MINDS–I missed that series somehow when it first came out, and now I’m obsessed. So, I’ll probably be reading book 2 of that series this week.

My goal(s) for this week:

1. Edit 5 chapters of ORDER OF THE ETERNAL SUN

2. Read another book

3. Help the kids with reading

4. Exercise at least 3 days

A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revise:

These are a few lines my CP highlighted while reading THE ORDER OF THE ETERNAL SUN as ones she liked–it’s a bit of sibling banter between the main character (Lucy Sinclair) and her older brother (Robert Sinclair):

I glance away. “Surely you don’t want to hear about all that. Tell me of officer’s training at Cambridge.”

“Shooting practice, marching, rigorous physical exercise. There. Your turn.”

“I believe this dance is about to end,” I say. I stare at the symphony and will them to cease playing.

 

The biggest challenge I faced this week:

Switching gears from one MS to another, but this is nothing new!

Something I love about my WiP:

With ORDER OF THE ETERNAL SUN, I loved being able to return to the same world as ARCANA, only with a focus on Lucy (the younger sister) instead. Lucy is caring and kind and completely obsessed with art and fashion, so it’s been fun being in her head.

The Next Book in the Arcana Series!

I’ve been ridiculously happy and excited to have so many people who read Arcana ask me if there will be a sequel, and I’m pleased to announce that there WILL be! The next book, THE ORDER OF THE ETERNAL SUN, will focus on Lucy, Katherine’s sister. It’s due out Spring 2016, which is a bit of a wait, I know, but bear with me! :)
