So, January has drawn to a close and while it’s been a productive one it’s also been a little bittersweet.
Not only did I start the month with a rejection but, I’m ending it with one as well.
It’s okay though because I do have plans for the two stories that were rejected. So keep your eyes on my blog for an announcement soon.
And, somewhat surprisingly I’ve managed to write a massive 10,556 words. All of those words have been accrued through penning various short stories.
It’s actually nice to complete something for once. As much as I love working on my various novels, there’s a lot more involved in completing a novel.
At this stage I’m not quite sure what February will bring story wise but whatever it is, I’m looking forward to it.
What are you all looking forward to in February?
Calling all speculative fiction authors!
I am the Review Co Ordinator over at The Horror Tree and I’m always on the lookout for new books to feature in the next Epeolatry Review.
If you have a novel or anthology that you think fits and would like to have it reviewed, drop me a comment below! You can also reach out to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I’d love to hear from you!
If you, like me are an avid reader you’ve probably got a to be read pile that keeps on getting bigger. If you don’t have a to be read pile, I’d love to know your secret to being a more productive reader. I struggle to find enough time to read to get through my pile.
Currently, on my to be read pile I have the following:
(in no particular order)
A Game of Thrones (plus the next two books) by George R R Martin
The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
The Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Throne Of Glass by Sarah J Maas
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Dreamer’s Pool by Juliet Marillier
I have absolutely no excuse as to why they’re still sitting on my bookshelves untouched. It’s probably got something to do with the fact that I do get caught up reading ebooks more than I do paperbacks.
And while I schedule time to write I don’t schedule enough time to read. Sometimes sleep just has to take priority.
I believe the last paperback book I picked up was Rebecca.
But my currently reading pile? Why, that’s a list for another time.
Well, if you enjoyed this blog, drop me a comment with one book on your shelf you haven’t gotten around to reading. I’m always on the lookout for new books to read, even if I haven’t finished reading all the ones I currently own.
