You might be wondering where I have been since my last post (wow it's been six months :o) unless you follow me on social media, then you might have an idea. IF you don't, I suggest you do because I tend to be much more interesting there.....
First, I went to SPAIN AND PORTUGAL. Check out my instagram if you want to see pictures :)
Second, the holidays. Not that it's really an excuse, but how is anyone remotely productive between Thanksgiving and New Years.
And finally, AFTER New Years, I went into focus mode. Since then, I have been doing ALOT of research and figuring out how exactly I'm going to move towards getting published. And lucky for you, (if you are on the same road or curious) I am going to be sharing my journey. I will be doing a series of posts dedicated to tips/info and the steps I have taken so far.
Speaking of said journey, the past month and a half I have been going through my novel and polishing it so my editor doesn't take one look at it and do this:
That being said, I sent My Lullaby of You off to my editor TODAY! It's a strange feeling, similar to what I would imagine what it feels like letting go of your child's hand as they go off to school for the first time. If you'd like to get started on reading the semi-polished version, the first 8 chapters are posted here.
Since I will be novel-less for the next three weeks, I will be doing a TOP 3 series of posts.
Of what, you ask? You'll just have to wait and see :)
PS. I refuse to apologize for the cat gifs. It was necessary.
I'm Alia. A writer, reader, traveler, dreamer, and to do list maker. You'll find a little bit of it all here.
