Blog Update and ROW80 Check-In 10

Hello gentle reader,

I hope you had a lovely week!

If you’re here to enter my Best Book Ever Giveaway and have a chance to win The Gathering Dark by Leigh Bardugo, click on the image below (giveaway ends tomorrow):

Best Book Ever Giveaway

If you’re here for my ROW80 Check-In, know that I spent my week running like a headless chicken for my crazy day job. Therefore I didn’t do any writing, I barely did any editing and I only did a bit of reading.

ROW80 LogoPlease note this is my last check-in for this round (although this round won’t be over until 20th June).

Indeed I have decided to join a summer challenge called Ready. Set. Write!


Hosted by Alison MillerKaty Upperman, Erin Funk, Jaime Morrow and Elodie Nowodazkij, it’s a summer writing intensive that starts Tuesday 11th June and will go on for 2 months. The idea is to update weekly on Wednesdays on what we’ve been writing and on our new goals for the week.

Sunday Giveaway

Finally and starting this week as well, I’ll be hosting a giveaway each Sunday. I will give you the opportunity to win one e-copy of a YA book I’ve read this year or will be reading this summer. I borrowed this idea from the wonderful Amy Plum whom I met in Paris at the SCBWI Conference in March.

So that’s what will happen on my blog until 15th August!

I wish you all a great summer and hope to read your comments below.

Let me know how your week was and what you have planned for the summer!

In the meantime, happy reading, and happy writing!

    Boo to the crazy day job, but I think you’ll be ready to kick some butt on your new challenge. I’ll miss you this summer while you’re away from ROW80 check-ins, but I’ll be cheering you on.
    My summer will be full of gardening, writing something brand new, and finishing editing on two other books. It’s going to be a busy summer. 🙂

    So much secret agenting lately!! I’ll miss you from #ROW80 and hope you come back after the summer! Good luck with Ready. Set. Write. It sounds like a lot of fun!

    I didn’t know you met Amy Plum…how exciting!! I really enjoy her Revenants series.

    I have no idea what’s in store for me this summer. I’d like to find a routine, but I’m not sure that the world is going to allow that yet. Have a great week!

    I’ve had a productive week. I can’t ask for more then that.

    Though I didn’t enter, thank you for hosting the book giveaways! Even if you are very, very busy, it still sounds like good ideas are percolating. Ready, Set, Write! sounds like it will provide a good structure to keep you writing all summer!

    My week has been hectic as well but brightened by a box of books on 19th Century Pacific Northwest history lent to me by my doctor — I write historical fiction and so begins the research.
