ROW80 Update/WIPpet Wednesday: Iceberg Edition

I don’t have a “bucket list.” But if I did, seeing icebergs would have been on it.

And then last weekend, this happened:


I know, the closer ones aren’t huge, and the bigger ones were too far away to get pictures. I still need to get out in a boat to get a better look.

But guys. Icebergs. The ones on the horizon looked like cityscapes and mountain ranges.


Earlier that evening...

Earlier that evening…

Just thought I’d share that. I’m still planning on taking you all on a whale-and-iceberg-watching trip this summer, if we can manage it.

Have I mentioned that Newfoundland is amazing?

ROW80 Update

Hmm, writing stuff. What’s happened this week?

Oh, that whole COVER REVEAL thing happened on Monday. Β That was kinda cool. I guess. So mainstream. Whatever.

Yeah, I’m not good at being cool and/or hipstery. It was FANTABULISTICAL! Thanks again to everyone who participated, reblogged, tweeted the link out, shared on Facebook, left comments, liked, added to Goodreads, whatever. It all meant so much to me.

And people seemed to like the blurb, so hooray for that! I totally wasn’t tearing my hair out over that until 5 minutes before I sent the e-mails out to participants. Nope. Nossiree. Toooootally cool. *puts on shades, stabs self in eye*

For anyone who missed it, the link to the reveal is here, Bound is on Goodreads for your shelving pleasure here, and the release date is June 26.

So the next thing is to get back at revising book 2, which is my JuNoWriMo project. So far, between the cover reveal, having to take the car in for repairs, and having my younger kiddo back on (short) afternoons at school, I haven’t done anything yet.

Slow clap, I know. I can make it up!

Right now I’m reading through, making notes on what needs to change.

So I guess that means that TECHNICALLY I have a WIP again, so I SUPPOSE I can join in on…

WIPpet Wednesday

Yes, I’m making you sit through ALL of the Wednesday stuff today! Actually, I’m not. You can go.


Still here? Excellent. Four sentences for the fourth from Torn. Because I’m generous like that. No context = no spoilers.


“Well.” His face broke into the cruel, heartless smile I knew so well. “We meet again. Where’s your whore?”


That’s it. That’s your WIPpet snippet. Sorry.

For more (and probably longer) entries, visit the WIPpeteers here. Join in, if you’d like– just post a snippet of a work in progress (at your own blog) that relates in some way to today’s date, and be sure to stop by and say hi to everyone else. It’s fun, I promise!
