This is true, except in my case the “writing first draft” part needs to be increased to at least a third of the chart and the “wishing you’d never started” part needs to go right between that phase and Editing.
(Well, technically it needs to go right in the middle of “Writing First Draft”, but that would make the pie chart even more confusing.)
Experts told this artist her dream was impossible. It’s a good thing she didn’t listen.

Not sure if you guys do recommendations, but y'all are lovely people and it feels worth a try. Okay. If I am a lady-type who specifically loves Maggie Stiefvater's Raven Boys books, Holly Black's Curseworkers series, and Kendare Blake's "Anna Dressed In Blood" stuff, what should I be purchasing next?
Hello new friend who loves books I love!
Going on the assumption you’ve already read Maggie’s masterpiece The Scorpio Races, here are more things for you to love:
1. The Lost Sun by Tessa Gratton (currently available in hardcover, book two coming in June and it is GREAT) — This is your next favourite book. Norse mythology beautifully interwoven with modern life, a road trip, and the greatest BROTP since Noah and Blue in The Dream Thieves.
2. The Lynburn Legacy by Sarah Rees Brennan — It’s like Veronica Mars meets Harry Potter. Friendship, magic, crime-solving, minor felonies, and jokes!
3. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge — a smart, sexy, magical retelling of Beauty and the Beast with Greek mythological elements.
4. The Story of Owen by E.K. Johnston (You’ll have to order online but it’s worth the wait.) — A Canadian equivalent to The Curse Workers, but with DRAGONS!
5. Preorder SINNER.
Unless you live in the Kitchener/Waterloo/Guelph area! All the copies at Kitchener are signed, and I have signings at the Waterloo and Guelph Chapters on April 26 and May 3 respectively.
You know who got me to read The Lost Sun? E.K. Johnston. (If you have a chance you should definitely go to her signings.) - Chandra
And furthermore, I will be doing a signing at Chapters Waterloo with E.K. Johnston on April 26 from 1 - 3 pm! Double your YA author value, double your fun!
BEST. PLAYROOM. EVER.

Dark chocolate, poured over velvet: that was how his voice tasted. I wanted him to follow me around and narrate the rest of my life.

NGL, that is one of my favourite lines from anything I’ve written ever, so it made me very happy when my readers started quoting it. It’s always cheering to discover that other people like the same things about your stories that you do.
this look is so good it is upsetting me
JAPANESE MARY RUSSELL! WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?
This would make a great alternative cover to ULTRAVIOLET.

I approve of this fan casting SO HARD.
