That Work in Progress

I am finally-FINALLY-done with school. I now hold a BA in Writing Arts, an MA in Writing, and an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults. I have 10k left on my current work in progress and it’s killing. Because I’m at a point that gets my MC to the end. And I know how it ends. But between now and then something happens and I just haven’t figured that part out yet. It’s infuriating. But, I have some goals. My pinky fingers willing, I will get that last 10k done by April 30th, overhaul in May, and begin … Continue reading That Work in Progress

YES CAPITALS ARE REQUIRED! In August of this year, there is a book coming out about girls who code. It’s a middle-grade fiction and code is supposed to be integral to the story (there’s a code they have to figure out). I’m so excited and I just requested it in Edelweiss.

Full Series Stop

Many staff writers here at Round Robin Writes have been beyond excited for the release of King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard. We fell in love with Aveyard’s writing in just the first seven chapters that released before Red Queen‘s publication. But Glass Sword had a lot of issues with it, most notably the repetition of “Anyone can betray anyone”. And I did feel betrayed when the book took me so long to get through because there was a complete lack of action until the very end. And now, with the excerpt recently published by of chapters six and seven of King’s Cage, I feel like I will begrudgingly read the book rather than enter into it full of hope.

New Middle Grade Work

cyber-tech-faeriesOkay hear me out. Faeries and vlogging! But not vlogging faeries. Let me premise this with a background of inspiration. Many moons ago, when I was an education major, hoping, naively, to be the greatest teacher ever, we spent a good week and a half going over statistics. Keep in mind–these are the statistics for students most likely to fail.

Why bother seeing anything about the successful kids? That’s silly. Continue reading “New Middle Grade Work”


76566295-368-k31393Follow me on Twitter or talk to me in person and you’ve probably learned of my new found love of audio books. I -recently- purchased A Court of Mists and Fury to listen to and because I only tend to listen in the car or on the train it has taken me a few months to listen to it in it entirety.

Until this morning.

On my way to work.

When I finished it.

When I expected to hear the beginning of the next chapter.

Now if that’s not bad enough–I have like twelve books now that I am craving waiting patiently for to be published in 2017.  Continue reading “A Court of HOW COULD YOU END THE BOOK THERE”
