What's Up Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk. Head over to Jaime's page for links to find out what's up with everyone else. Here's what's up with me.
What I'm Reading
I recently read This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith. It's a cute romance that was a fun summer read. A lot of contemporary YA has "issues" in addition to the romance. This book is really only romance and the characters didn't have all that much depth. It was still a very fun read.
What I'm Writing
I can now officially announce that my second novel, The Evolution of Emily, will be released on November 18th! So I've been working on that. I just got my final edits back from my copy editor and am working on getting polished and ready for publication.
I'll be posting the cover, blurb, etc, next month. But for now, I'll give you the tag line.
Emily knows all about the birds and the bees; boys are a lot more confusing.
What Inspires Me Right Now
It's been two months since my last blog post, so I think that means I'm not all that inspired. I've been really busy lately! Life is good. Life is great. But pushing the pause button on life long enough to write has been a challenge lately.
What Else I've Been Up To
A lot! Most notably, I'm becoming a mom. I've been trying to adopt kids out of the foster care system for the past year and a half. The process is long and very time consuming. But my wait is almost over. Chances are high there will be kids in my house by the end of the summer. Possibly even the end of the month. So that's what I've been doing for the last two months while not blogging. I've been getting all ready for my eminent embarkation into parenthood.
I don't want to share any personal info about my future kids online. All children deserve privacy, especially foster kids. I will likely write more about the adoption process in general in the future though. Right now, I mainly just want to get through it all.
It has been a very crazy past couple weeks, and things are only getting crazier.
