Secret Message Generator #9: 5 Weeks To Go! - Stuff I Love - Shimmer - GOODREADS GIVEAWAY - To-Be-Read - DragonCon Dragon Nomination

Status update ..

Nearly finished drafting Bone Universe Book Three right now! Already pondering the next project -- I'm really excited!

Meantime, still fiddling with new sections in the secret message machine - want to see something from me? Tell me so here.::

Some of the newness includes Stuff I'm Using... whether it's ink, socks, or a really dumb hack, as well as giveaways and silliness. News & Secrets (new!) - stuff I'm not saying on twitter yet. A To-Be-Read list - with nonfiction, essays, and advance-reads I think you should know about. WIP Snippets - a shareable gif this month because I'm trying to keep the lid on tight in the WIP to build up pressure... next time, I promise. & Things I'm Researching - or, what Google thinks I'm interested in now.

As we get closer to Cloudbound launch, there may be more related to that here, but I'll try to put more fun stuff in too.
5 Weeks To Go!
CLOUDBOUND comes out September 27, so if you can, ask after it at your library, preorder (& get some some special pre-order treats if you do), and hit it up on Goodreads!

ENTER TO WIN CLOUDBOUND FROM GOODREADS
Keep your eyes open. I'm saving one Cloudbound ARC for newsletter subscribers in the coming months... and I'll decorate it for the winner ...
This is an intermittent & non-spammy newsletter for subscribers. My goal is to condense a whole lot of info into a small space. How did I do? What would you like to see more of?
