General Announcement & #NaNoWriMo2014

As you all know, I’ve been working on my WIPs for a while and this is the first time since well…university life in general that I actually have time to work on it. So, I decided to take the leap this year and FINALLY participate in #NaNoWriMo 🙂 It’s been pretty amazing. 

I’ve wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember, I’m as passionate about writing as I am about reading and I hope that when it is completed that others will enjoy my story as much as I did writing it. 

Because of the sheer amount of time spent writing 50k in 30 days, the posts around here might get a little lax. It’s hard to balance both but after this month, things should pick back up. Plus, NetGalley is breathing down my neck and I really don’t want to irk them. I love my ARCs.

That being said, my WIP is at 18k and climbing today 🙂 I’m on track but my goal for this month is 65k and if I stick to that goal, I’m a bit behind. I’ll keep you posted. It’s Young Adult, paranormal. It follows the journey of a little girl from a traumatic event in her childhood into high school when someone from her past returns. Yes,  I know that’s pretty vague but I don’t want to give too much away. It’s not complete…There are demons, demon species, murders, and mysteries. Feel free to add me if you’re working on your own NaNo goal. My user name is jw08k.

November 11: The Endangered Promo by S.L. Eaves

New Adult/Adult Reviews

Hi all,

This is just a brief announcement of what is coming up this week. I have a research paper on the ICTY and implementation of genocide charges which is taking up a massive amount of my review time. However, I have several blog tours and giveaways scheduled for this week. The majority of these reviews are NA or Adult. Don’t worry, I will definitely include new release YA in between the NA. I have received so many requests lately and oddly enough, most of them have been for adult fiction. Go figure. But I’m happy to review anything really and hope that all of you are open to exploring this world of adult fiction with me while I review a genre I haven’t touched in years. Just don’t think that I’ve given up on YA because that is NOT the case. My love of YA knows no bounds and I have a bunch of YA reviews and reveals in the works for you. If you guys have any requests or suggestions, feel free to comment or contact me in one of the options under contact info at the top of the blog.

As always, happy reading friends,
