I did a lot this month!
I attended the Obsidio book launch and also a book launch for Margot McGovern’s debut.
These events are always quite fascinating as I adore listening to authors speak about their inspiration or journey to publication. It was actually my very first time attending anything like this and let me tell you a fact..... the lines are soooooooo loooooooong.
So freaking long.
I have no idea how those authors do it! I was exhausted from just standing and waiting for so long. I think their signing hands must have been ready to fall off.
Actually, I did notice that poor Aimee Kaufman was wearing a wrist brace.....
Despite how exhausting it must be for them to meet so many people and sign SO MANY FREAKING BOOKS, Aimee Kaufman, Jay Kristoff and Margot McGovern were all lovely.
And now I have some exciting signed booked!
On a more personal writing note, something insane happened to me this month.
I kind of want to wait until its fully official before I shout it from the rooftops though, so please do watch this space for an announcement coming soon.
I am fairly over the moon about it, and making all sorts of plans.
Meanwhile, I have been trying to concentrate on finishing the first draft of my current project, a horror/reality bending/contemporary YA novel. Which I have achieved! First draft finished.
It is a very rough, very raw initial draft, and will need a lot of editing yet before it is quite ready for the world. But I'm feeling good!
And in other news, I have some plans for an exciting new series of posts for this blog.
So check this space again.... maybe tomorrow?
What did I read?
Lots and lots of stuff this month!
I read a little adult crime fiction and also Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff. I also read the lovely contemporary YA novel, Mallee Boys by Charlie Archbold, a local Adelaide author! And am stuck into Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi currently. It is quite an interesting experience for me as it is based on Nigerian folktales and set in a fantasy version of Nigeria. My last name, Nwosu, is actually Nigerian, so it's been a very interesting read for me so far!
Next up for me will be Neverland by Margot McGovern.
Also, my birthday is coming up next month and I am going to be getting a crazy amount of books!!!
Here is my beautiful wishlist!!!
That is 11 freaking books!!!
That is it from me. Here is a pretty book pic to finish up. :)
