New Year’s Resolution

Happy 2018! Wishing you all a safe, happy, and successful new year. I thought I’d start the year with a short list of resolutions. Although I’m not one for using new year’s specifically for resolutions — I’d rather have short goals throughout the year — it won’t hurt to make a grand end point, right?…

NaNoWriMo 2017: Week 1

NaNoWriMo 2017 has officially kicked off! I have a loaded schedule this month, so I’m not sure how much I can actually get done, with two friends visiting separately from the other side of the world and six days’ exams at the end (and I still need to study for it!) but we’ll see. March…

Cover Reveal for NaNoWriMo2017 and the Next Project

NaNoWriMo2017 draws near, as does the start of my second project. As promised, the cover reveal for my sequel to 2014’s NaNoWriMo, a science fiction-fantasy combining the ethics of simulated reality, human experimentation, and doing The Greater Good. Welcome to March City: The Rebellion of the Gifted.

Film Review: Logan

I’m a big fan of X-men and Marvel. I love super powers. Heck, one of my novels was basically inspired by X-men crossed into power rangers. So when Logan came out, I was very excited. “Logan” takes the story on quite a different tone to the previous ones: no mass extermination, no victims of feat…

Win 10 Bestselling YA Fantasy and Sci-Fi Books!

My good friend Maaja Wentz is hosting a draw for 10 bestsellers on her website! Check it out here! I have to say I have only read one and a half of them. Cassandra Clare’s work I really don’t care about, but I have heard The Gender Game is one of the hottest Dystopian Sci-fis…

Completing March City

28 November 2016 marks the upload of the last chapter of March City: The Land of the Gifted, my first attempt at NaNoWriMo back in 2014. This story took almost two years to complete simply because of the long hiatus I took not long after the 50k, so that, along with Seeker: Demon Killers, are quite…

NaNoWriMo Plotting

I had three plot bunnies for potential NaNo. One was a March City sequel, one was a new sci-fi story, and the other a new fantasy. Sadly the March City sequel wouldn’t work for NaNo as the timescale doesn’t quite cater to me finishing the current March City, but it’s something I’ll look into developing…

March City Resumes

So as I’m making serious progress in continuing my NaNoWriMo 2014 project to completion, I’ve started posting March City again on Wattpad. It’s strange delving back into Ari’s world again. Everything is so familiar and I even remember the depression and lack of motivation coming back, which was why I didn’t want to start posting…
