Facts About Me: Too Many WIP's - Part 4

I'm a notorious busy bee. I can never stop, even when I'm already in the middle of something, so I usually have at least four or five WIP's (works in progress) on the go at once.

 

Here's a quick glance at some that I'll be working on throughout 2018. And, because I'm so bad at starting a story and not finishing it, or coming up with new ideas when I'm supposed to be doing something else, there are too many for one post, so keep an eye out for more, in the future.

Moonglaive has been the home of the Gods since the human world was created. A place of worship and serenity, it is the home to the Moonglaive monastery, who do all they can to serve the demon Gods who created humanity.

It has been decades since the Gods sent a chosen into their care...until Pipper. Arriving as a child, his true fate marks him as the chosen of the demon Gods, someone who will be their conduit, learn from them and work with his demon to keep the human world safe.

Years pass and Pipper's true purpose has been to battle sin, one case at a time. But when the world begins to show signs of a coming apocalypse, Pipper must draw human hunter Finore into his confidence. Together, they will travel the world with his demon God, Azelel, in an attempt to prevent the destruction of all they hold dear. In the process, they will reveal forbidden secrets, expose long forgotten truths, and go on a journey of self discovery that will spell death for one member of their group.

The baby of his family, Willow has always been the odd one out. While his brothers have superpowers like controlling Fire, Air, and Water, he's left with the elemental gift of Earth. A gift that, despite turning twenty-one, he has yet to master.

Add on the awkward fact that his first day on campus is full of whispers about the four new boys who all looked like trouble. Black leather and black jeans; that was the way all Grace boys dressed. It was the unwritten rule of their status as princes in the warlock world.

But being a prince won't help Willow navigate college. Or help him figure out why that strange redhead keeps staring at him.

All Eli ever wanted was to be in a band, be a singer, and write lyrics for songs that touched people's hearts. That dream came true when indie band Graceless Nights rebranded themselves with a new name and a new lead singer – Eli.

But fame comes at a price. And the price, for Eli, is not worth the rewards.

A threat of blackmail, from a blogger with a story to sell, leaves Eli unbalanced, lost in a haze of secrets that he must expose before the blogger can.

Even if it means losing himself, his privacy, and everyone he's ever held dear.

When the King dies unexpected, his daughter assumes the role of Queen in his stead. Until the council of elders gather and try to tell her that a woman cannot rule.

Unwilling to accept that she can only rule with a man by her side, self-made Queen Rachael takes matters into her own hands.

Sending notes far and wide, she invites all eligible Counts, Lords, and Princes of the realm to the castle, under the guise of a week long celebration of her father's life and rule. Convincing the council that she will marry one of the men, Rachael begins the most daring adventure of her tomboy life, yet...stealing a throne that already rightfully belongs to her.

Cover Reveal - The Guardian

 

THE SECOND BOOK IN AN EXCITING NEW URBAN FANTASY SERIES BY BESTSELLING AUTHOR SARAH FINE.

 

Life and death are a gamble for a girl fighting to save humanity in a world she’s only beginning to understand.

 

One minute, Ernestine “Ernie” Terwilliger was a fairly normal young woman with an almost normal life. Absent father. Peculiar mother. Family secrets. The next, she was hurled into a land where the Immortal Dealers are waging a battle between good and evil—and where the fate of the world is in the cards.

 

Having only started to master her own deck, the inexperienced Ernie places the wrong bet on the right guy at the worst time. That’s when she’s bounced into another realm and trapped there by a formidable and power-hungry rogue Dealer who knows more about Ernie’s fractured family than Ernie herself does.

 

Now, Ernie’s fight to free herself is only the beginning. As the secrets of Ernie’s father and his own relics of power start to surface, Ernie will need to tell friend from foe—a feat not as easy as it seems.

 

At least now she has a full deck…because to survive secrets, betrayals, and dangerous dimensions, she’ll need to deal the best hand.

Difficult
Invisible Man - Ralph Ellison

On various fronts. The overarching subject, the sense of hopelessness, helplessness and despair, the long-winded, meandering way the story is told (which is on par with the idea that it is a stream-of-conscience recount), and the purpose way in which this guy's obliviousness is made plain (and cringe-inducing) for the reader (and the teller).

 

Found it brilliant, at points boring and quite maddening.

 

Oh, and I leave it with a feeling akin to what Catcher in the Rye left me.

Book three...
The Master Magician (The Paper Magician Book 3) - Charlie Holmberg

Am I stupid for considering reading this after being so irritated by both book one and book two?

 

There are some good parts, I'll give you that, but they don't outweigh the bad parts.

 

I read the book description and it has me intrigued.  I had an idea that part of it would happen somewhere around the beginning of book two... and the other part was so freaking obvious that a blind man would have seen it coming from a couple of miles away...

 

but I want to see if it gets better because I was really looking forward to reading these and now I'm all irritated and I want book three to fix it all and make me happy that I read it...

 

but what if it doesn't?

 

<sigh>

Fatima Farheen Mirza's A PLACE FOR US

The first title from Sarah Jessica Parker's imprint for Hogarth

 

I am normally wary of hyped debut novels, but with comparisons made to Anthony Marra’s outstanding A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, I was eager to read Fatima Farheen Mirza’s A Place for Us.

 

Unlike many reviewers, I was not immediately absorbed by Mirza’s family narrative.  The prose itself was strikingly assured for a debut novelist but I struggled to truly engage with the characters, my personal feelings about the entrenched cultural-religious gender bias impacting their lives getting in the way.

 

Many of the characters’ behaviours/actions are frustrating to an outside observer also. But to Mirza’s credit, her attention to detail and absence of sentimentality in the presentation of the different character viewpoints soon had me seeing past those differences. It is with the nuances of behaviour explored, the family dynamics, and the gravity and impact of what is often left unsaid that I engaged. Continue reading >>
