Where In The World Has Mara Been?

Wishing I had an awesome hat like Carmen Sandiego, actually.

No, not really. I wish life was that simple. I ended up taking an unintentional writerly break. We all need those now and again, I suppose. Vacation, sick time, or sometimes we just get stuck in our own heads for a bit.

But the bags are unpacked, the virus has run its course, and the fog of my mind has (somewhat) cleared. What does that mean? Well, I'm back of course!

Now, what am I up to? I'm sure there will be the inevitable blog tours to extend my "to read" list, but I'll also be posting about my new project and updates with Heirs of War as they come along. Right now I am 7k into my YA dystopian and using CampNaNo to finish it up this month. I'm really excited about this book because it is a much simpler story than Heirs of War, and much more marketable (I hope).

I've also got some exciting new developments ahead for Heirs of War as I move at a tortoise-like pace toward the goal of self-publishing. So, in short, I promise to keep this blog more up to date with actual information on my writerly exploits. I might even post an excerpt or two from the dystopian MS as they come.

For now, the night is young, I am a couple of paragraphs in, and jamming out to an excellent soundtrack list I made. Time to get to work!
