February Run-Down + I need Your Questions

10:46 AM

Hola readers!
WOW.
It's almost the end of another winter month (spring is right around the corner!). There has been a lot going on this little month...


I cut my hair. People have asked me why and honestly I needed a change. I tend to get down into a routine...same hairstyle, clothing style, schedule...my comfort zone is a place I love to dwell.
And this haircut was far from my comfort zone.
I like to challenge myself out of the zone, out of the place I tend to remain. We tend to go into a rut over time, sameness becoming comfortable.


I announced the self publishing (JUNE THIRD!!!!) of my YA novel The Broken Prince. EEEKKK!!!! I am terrified excited. I bounce between utter fear and utter excitement that in a few months time you may have my book in your hands.
And speaking of The Broken Prince, is there anything you as a reader would like to see (blog-wise) about my book? It's been such a part of my life for so long that I don't know what you want to see. Please - questions, ideas. I would love to know what you want to see in the next few months about my baby.



I tried Doctor Who. I know so many fans of the show that it isn't even funny...so being the movie/TV show buff that I am, I decided to try season 1. I love Star Wars, I love fantasy....I really don't love the doctor. Can someone please tell me it get's better?


I read...

Gilt Hollow from Lorie Langdon
Smitten
Some of the Katie Weldon Series
Annabelle Lee from Mike Nappa

Highly enjoyed Gilt Hollow for a change of Gothic YA romance/suspense!

Listened to...
Veridia (some of there music is very relevant!)
Lauren Daigle (Almost Human!!!)
NF

Watched...
Doctor Who season 1
Merlin BBC season 4
You Can't Take It With You
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl

February hasn't been terribly eventful. I basically spent a lot of time working and then writing on the side whenever I got the chance.  The weather has been unpredictable and as for snow we've never had more than five inches.
But life is good.
Really good.
It may be partially boring but life is what you make it....
God is good.
My depression and anxiety has been lower than it's ever been. I'm happy. My baby book is becoming a reality.
ANNNDDD my blog is turning seven this coming month!
I am planning some vlog Q & A s and I would love your questions! Honestly ask anything -- be random, be deep, be real. I would love to be both silly and serious with you. If you just need advice, I am honestly up for that too.
Please fill my comments with your questions -- I can't wait to chat with you in "person" this coming month. And quick reminder, I would also love to know what you would like to hear about The Broken Prince. If you have anything in particular you would like to know, please let me know.

Have a lovely week readers!
