Got my coffee, got my music, got my dreams of going full-time author… I think I’m set.
Yesterday was an excellent, and I mean excellent editing day! I think it may have been a record because I finished up three scenes. However, this is a stand alone novella, and much different than trying to keep track of all the characters and plot lines for The Phoenix Curse. Hopefully I’m learning though. At the pace I’m going, the romance novella Thief should be sent to my editor before the end of the month, and then Katlynn Rose will be born! Dat exciting!
Also, romance with a happy ending is such a refreshing change of pace than the desolation of humanity and death.
Kinda like the difference between That Ghoul Ava and the Dead series by +Todd Brown (I totally just figured out how to do that, BTW.) Dead is a very dark, very gritty, very curl-up-in-a-fetal-position-and-cry set of books, while That Ghoul Ava is the polar opposite. Ava is fun and funny, a light read full of comedy and references. Glorious, glorious references that make me feel a part of something bigger. Man, do I love it when I get a reference.
Anyway, Next on a very special That Ghoul Ava was just as great as the preceding novels. It was a bit more serious that the others, but still managed to make me laugh out loud in parts. Ava (and the reader) gets to learn a little bit more about the history of ghouldom and just how awesome Ava could become, but everything isn’t all flowers and butterflies. Ava is forced to make a life(unlife)-impacting decision with some pretty serious consequences either way. I can not wait for the next book! Hell, I was so excited for this one, I couldn’t wait for the audio book to come out, so I snagged the e-book.
The mythology and lore is excellent in this series, and I really need someone out there to make a dedicated beastiary for Ava’s world. Seriously, if you enjoy some light-hearted, supernatural fun, grab Ava’s first adventure and give it a shot. It’s reasonably priced, and well worth the time/money invested to see if you like it.
And there is my un-spoilory review. Do we like unspoilory reviews, or should I start going straight up… “OMG THIS HAPPENED AND I WAS LIKE WOW, AND THEN THIS HAPPENED AND IT WAS ALL… WOAH DUDE!!!” ?
I don’t know. I’ll think on. I hate getting spoiled to things, so I want to spare people that. I was a full season behind on the Walking Dead and I still haven’t finished Breaking Bad, so for a while there, I was tip-toeing through reddit and Facebook like it was a minefield. Still got spoiled.
For now though, it’s time to get some egg-rolls, listen to another chapter of Dead Trees, and enjoy the upcoming weekend, free from the 8 to 5 workday problems. Enjoy your word of the day, cuz that’s what I’m going to be doing alllllllll weekend!
