Happy Monday! This quote always speaks to me because I actually have to remember this. I'm kind of a person who plans things and sees my life going a certain way and do not do well when it goes off track. In the last few years, I've had to let go of how I thought it would go and just go with the flow. it's not always easy but I am getting better at it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am seriously finding it hard to get anything done. I'm lacking motivation and waste too many hours in the day. There is a very good chance I'm burned out and just tired. But I have things I need to get done and books to publish and read. I'll try to find a break during the upcoming holidays. What do you do when you're feeling tired and unmotivated?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have a great day, everyone!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

My current read from the library. So far the editing of the audiobook is clunky but the narrators are excellent! The story is fascinating!

Hello Lilacs and Water Lilies! ✨🍁☕️🍁✨
.
Happy National Princess Day to all my fellow princesses who crush their goals on a daily basis (you, I’m talking about all of you. 😘)
.
#fantasywipnovember19 QOTD: any royalty in your WIP?
.
AOTD- why yes, Mr. brooding temper himself! While the witch covens of Navarre may have a very different idea of what royalty is and how they should act, they still have a queen (Rowena) and she still has an heir(Erza). And as I’ve mentioned, Edan is Erza’s twin (just given up at birth) so technically according to bloodlines, he is still a prince even if he wasn’t raised as one! 💜
.
#novwipshare- best writing advice. I don’t know if I’d say best, as there’s a lot of freaking amazing advice out there, but don’t be afraid to take breaks, slow down, and think. If you don’t know how you want a scene to go, skip it, keep writing a different scene! Or go do something else and come back to writing the next day! It’s okay to be unsure 💜

Dear readers... so sorry I've been missing in action most of the week-end, but I've been frantically working to wrap up all the last minute details for the release of The Turning, Book Two in The Medici Warrior Series which will be available to order on Cyber Monday (Dec 2nd). I can't wait for you to be able to read the continuation of Shade and Kate's journey. In the meantime, here's a peek of the cover! #paranormalromance #darkromance #vampire #urbanfantasy #bookstgram #amreading #amreadingromance #emilybex #thebloodcovenant #theturning #amreadingfantasy #mediciwarriors #newrelease

Listening to Gilded Wolves by Roshan Chokshi. I can’t get behind the narrator’s style. He reads all of the male voices like a gritty crime drama instead of a low fantasy YA. It novel itself is pretty good though.

*Nothing against kids' books, but that's not my thing.
.
This book will not make a great gift for your seven-year-old. I don't mean that to come off as harsh, but rather, honestly. The mature content and suspense isn't meant for kids. It's meant for YOU. Who says you have to stop liking these fantasy tales just because you now have a mortgage and a full-time job?
.
If you think "these types of books" aren't for you--or because there is a unicorn it must be for kids--I'd like to prove you wrong. Join me in Nav'Aria and find out for yourself. 🦄 kjbacker.com

Day 18 of the #novemberauthorwipchallenge asks, “Take a random picture of your WIP/what you’re reading”. .

I figured I’d show a picture of The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang because I am really loving this book and a little too shy to share any of the writing from my first draft. There’s a reason why people meme about first drafts never seeing the light of day! .

What’s your current read?

Happy Monday, fellow book dragons! 😊😊

Another MCM over, and I am absolutely exhausted. For someone who is not only an introvert, but socially anxious, these cons (especially the bigger ones like MCM) REALLY take it out of me. I have another one this weekend (Reading), and another one the weekend after (Dragonmeet), so will try and fill my energy reserves before those! 🤔🤔
.
Thank you so much to everyone who came and said hello, bought a book, came in cosplay of one of my characters/gave me a gift - it all makes the stress and tiredness worth it! 💙💙
.
And another huge thank you to the helpers on my table. Without you, I couldn't do these cons. You are all absolutely amazing! 💙💙

The back-and-forth between Rogan and Nevada, imo, is unmatched. I love it! Never gets old for me. • Also, I loved the nod to John Cusack in Say Anything, one of my fave movies. • Quote is from Wildfire by Ilona Andrews • 3rd book of the Hidden Legacy series.

A new book pretty!⠀
.⠀
I haven't made one of these in a while and was really happy with this one. So yes, those are my books! But no, that isn't a real shelf! 😆 ⠀
.⠀
In other words, I can put YOUR books there instead of mine. 😉 The image is great for a series, so if you are looking for something to showcase your books, let me know!⠀
.⠀
And everyone else, book 1, Born of Water, is actually free if you want to check it out and get swept up. Links are in my bio. Or go to https://www.aravendesign.com/3d-book-images for the image and www.autumnwriting.com for the free book!⠀

It's another #SockSunday! Today I'm going to be writing like a fiend in the morning and early afternoon, then I'm going to watch Christmas movies and put up my Christmas tree! Unless, of course, I get super caught up in writing, and then I'll just have to leave putting up the tree to next weekend!

Day 17 of #NaNoOrNot19: Favorite genres
.
I'm a sucker for genre-blending, which is one of the reasons why I'm writing a fantasy/mystery (And I'm currently reading this self-published fantasy/mystery/romance? and it's really good!). It's hard for me to define a favourite genre, especially since I took the readers' advisory course in library school, and I understand that what I like about a book isn't necessarily the genre, but the appeal factors. I like a book that has an intelligent plot with relatable characters, but not too much introspection. If the book is primarily character-driven, I'm likely to lose interest (unless the character is unique/interesting in some way--like with The Rosie Project or the Dexter book series, although they both have fast plots as well). .
I do tend to prefer speculative fiction, because its so interesting to find different worlds that I can immerse myself in--even if they're the exact same as our world but for a few little differences (like with urban fantasy). .
While I love romantic elements in my books, I rarely read romance, unless it's funny. I need some suspense or comedy to keep me turning the pages! (Romantic suspense is a genre that I absolutely adore for this reason).

QOTD: What's your favourite genre to read or write?

Only a few short weeks until the release of Wrath and WIng. I am so excited to share the start of a new fantasy series with the world!

Keep reading for a sneak preview.

There is a world outside the village of Harane. Beyond the towering mountains to the east and the open skies to the west. Beyond Ilbrea and the seven Guilds that rule our country with a golden fist.

There is an ocean where free men sail to lands beyond my imagination. There are countries ruled by good and just leaders. There are places where magic is more than a thing to be feared.

But I do not live in any of those places. I live in Harane.

I was born in Harane, my parents died in Harane. And as I stood in the field, blood surrounding my boots, it felt as though the outside world might be a lie.

There was nothing in existence but pain and death, and there was no chance of surviving if a person was fool enough to hold on to the dream that something more could be found.

The lovely @carrieauthor is having a fantastic giveaway to celebrate her birthday! For a chance to win, check out her original post!! Reposted from @carrieauthor (@get_regrann) -  In the lead up to my birthday, I'm hosting a celebration of publishing success with an international giveaway of my first book, the time travel fantasy, Firestone Key, signed of course. The winner will be picked at 9pm next Saturday.

The blurb is below. *
What power would you use to make it right?
Elaine survives an abusive childhood that leaves her with a scarred face and an exceptional mind. 
In order to save humanity from a terrible fate, she devises The Project; an impossible manipulation of time. But when the fading vortex inexplicably bursts into life, Elaine is blasted into a medieval society that bears no relation to the history books; a land of curiously human animals, foul monsters and violent magic; a land living in fear of the infamous Firestone and the hideous Queen that wields its power. 
Finding in the oppressed villagers the family she has always craved, Elaine learns that time is in flux and every action bears a consequence. Encountering a traitor as scarred as herself, she begins a relationship that will tragically alter future, present and past.
But what is the Firestone? And what if it lies closer than she knows, for every evil has an origin.

Oh boy... When I read ACOTAR back in January I wasn't too much of a fan. I enjoyed the world building but there where too many structural issues and I ended up giving it ⭐⭐⭐. Therefore, I was reluctant to continue and read the next installment. But, after reading that ACOMAF was incredible and worth the hype I decided to give it a shot. And I'm terribly glad that I did. This book is Where It's At. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ all the way. I love the conflicts, the war, the characters, the new places we explore, and *big sigh* Rhysand 🖤 .

💛 Tell me a series that you like that gets better after the first book 💛

I received the most loviest package of goodies from Laura @halfstrungharp last week!

I find it difficult to travel due to my disability and whatnot but I have some amazing friends who are collecting lots of signed bookplates and bookmarks  for me!

So here is two illustrations of the characters Darus and Skara from We are the Dead that the author @mikeshackle drew! They’re so amazing! 😍
He also wrote a note threatening to kill off a character that shares my name in the sequel of his book! He best not!

If you swipe you’ll see a lovely signed book mark from Heather Child, a bookplate from Peter Newman who wrote The Vagrant, a bookplate from Adrian Tchaikovsky - which includes a drawing of a wasp and butterfly, and a bookplate from Mark Lawrence who trying to one up Adrian, drew two dots that represented a wasp and dragonfly!! Apparently I need a microscope to see the illustration clearly! 😂

I was also gifted some awesome books, but I’ll share that later in the week.

I’m going to start building a scrapbook to hold all these in. Do you any of you do scrapbooking? Any tips on how to pretty it up?

Day 17 - Retribution is swift. There’s certainly this in We are the Dead. #grimdragon

Hey everyone! Today's article is a bit of a sensitive one, potentially. In this post, we're talking about 'cancel culture' in YA and how to approach touchy subjects in your writing. Feel free to comment! 
One of the hardest parts of writing is that there will always be someone who has a problem with your work. 
When I was on the Write Track Podcast back in July, one of the topics that was brought up on my episode was a growing "cancel culture" in YA literature. For those of you who don't know what "cancel culture" is, don't worry. Before that podcast, I had no idea either. I did a bit of research, and what I found honestly startled me. Books with controversial subjects or controversial tropes are being removed from the market often before they even have a chance to get started. While in some cases this can be due to actual bigotry in the writing or in the author's actions themselves, I found that a decent number of books were being canceled by publishers because people were becoming offended by their subject matter. 
One Chinese-American author, Amélie Zhao, had to withdraw her upcoming fantasy novel because she received backlash for the way it approached slavery. In her apology, she stated that her ideas were based on the Asian experience, not the American one. I had a problem with this. I don't know how the book was written, and honestly, I would need to know that before making a final judgement. But using my historian voice for a second, why do we need to pull something that confronts a different element based in history? If it was well-researched and was adequately told, why should that offend others?

But the world is strange and endings are not truly endings no matter how the stars might wish it so - The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern

The Starless Sea was everything I hoped it would be and more! The stories within the stories were so beautifully written - which is to be expected with Erin Morgenstern - and the feelings they invoked were unlike any I've had before. Zachary was a very relatable MC, whose perspective I always loved coming back to. I think my favorite of the story excerpts was the innkeeper story, but honestly they were all gorgeous! And just like with The Night Circus, I was left with hope and melancholy after finishing, as well as a desire to immediately reread. What has been your favorite fall book release so far? The Starless Sea is mine, with Serpent and Dove a close second!
But the world is strange and endings are not truly endings no matter how the stars might wish it so - The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern The Starless Sea was everything I hoped it would be and more! The stories within the stories were so beautifully written - which is to be expected with Erin Morgenstern - and the feelings they invoked were unlike any I've had before.

💥Happy weekend folks! I had a little time off social media this week, I had a mixture of #bookstagram fatigue (is that a thing?) and actual fatigue - work be crazy at the moment! But, I’m back and feel excited about creating some good #bookish content. Sometimes you just need a break!

🔶 One of the books I’m real excited to start this coming week is THE RISE OF MAGICKS by Nora Roberts, it’s the final book in the Chronicles of the One trilogy. I can’t wait to see how it ends!

🔷 I still haven’t had much time to put together some new pics so o was scrolling through some of my old shots I hadn’t used and came across this gem. My hair looks awful (which Is why I didn’t use it!) but it was such a beautiful day that it still brings a smile to my face.

❓QOTD - do you save old shots for a rainy day? Or do you use them all as you take them?

Woohoo!!! My first Audible review is up. 🤩😃
.
I love the "unique" part, because it's so true. Nav'Aria IS unique with epic unicorns, crazy adventure, and family love... I'm so glad readers are connecting with it. Thank you so much for reading, supporting, and REVIEWING! My goodness, it means so much!🥰
.
Have a great weekend! And remember, if you read Nav'Aria please, please, please review it. That's the best way to show some "author love." (If you’re interested in the audiobook, let me know!! I have free promo codes).
.
THANK YOU. Truly--you, readers, are SO special to me.❤️

Day 16 of #allthebooksnov19 😀 Plot twist. Let’s just say I was laughing so hard when Jacks tricked Tella into a certain deal. Definitely didn’t see that one coming, and I loved it! Who else knows what I’m talking about with this one? .
