“Quanta Rewind is a thrilling ride and I enjoyed it as much as the first three books. Quanta continues to impress me and I really love this ragtag group of people pushed together under the worst circumstances.”
“Avec un peu d’humour, beaucoup d’action, une histoire bien ficelée et une histoire d’amour très belle, Quanta Rewind ne pouvait qu’être un coup de cœur.” (With a bit of humor, a lot of action, a well-crafted story and a lovely love story, Quanta Rewind could only be a favorite.)
“the more I watched the characters grow and learn, the more attached I became until I reached the point that I spent the last half of the book screaming out loud at them. I mean, how was I supposed to live if any of these fictional darlings died??”
“If you love a good dystopian, science fiction book then you are going to love Quanta Rewind and all of the Shadow Ravens novels.”
Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who reviewed and to all who’ve supported the Shadow Ravens. I would’ve given up on writing this book if not for your enthusiasm & encouragement <3 <3 <3
QUANTA REWIND is my last book in the Shadow Ravens series. There could be more books (hopefully more Cipher books by Aileen), but I’m coasting along to some new projects for now.
First, I’m getting my act together on the sportsy contemporary I’ve had on my desk for more than a year. It’s “finished” but needs a boatload of revision and I finally have time to get serious. This book is so important to me, I’ve been struggling with the need to make it perfect. So quest for perfection = zero actual progress. But this is the year. I swear!!
Then, NEW YA FANTASY. Slash Urban fantasy. I’m starting a new series for Ink Monster called the Spellwork Syndicate and the first book, Deadly Sweet, features a witch who just wants to bake magic cakes and be left alone. The cakes go well, but the left alone part… you’ll see ; ) Stay tuned for the cover reveal in August!
I’ve been majorly MIA the past few weeks (months?!) and Quanta Rewind is to blame. Lately, I spend all day every day at my desk, working on the draft and listening to ambient arctic noise…
As you can imagine, I’m an inch away from a total breakdown.
The good news is the draft is juuuuust about finished. Bloggers will be able to download it on NetGalley at the beginning of April, and we’re still signing up for the blog tour, so hop on if you’d love to host!
I’ve survived thus far by consuming near-lethal quantities of Cherry Coke and dreaming of all the fun I’ll have when this deadline is in the bag. Thought I’d share a few things I CANNOT WAIT TO DO after Quanta Rewind is off my desk:
Hygiene is the first item to go when the deadlines hit. My hair looks like I’ve been moisturizing with Crisco, and I need to get back on the cleanliness schedule of a normal human person.
2) Play Breath of the Wild for 375603560q9479345 hours
It has come to my attention that I’m a grown adult and shouldn’t get sucked into buying a $300 console plus accessories just to have a Zelda machine… But then again OPEN WORLD ZELDA WITH COOKING AND WHO CARES ABOUT MONEY. I’m going to hunt down a Switch and spend a solid week gathering mushrooms. That’s just how I roll.
3) Catch up on dramas
I’m ridiculously behind on my drama watching. I got sidetracked with all this work (lame!) so I stalled out on Jealousy Incarnate, The Princess Weiyoung, and Hwarang, but I’m determined to catch up. PLUS, I have Goblin on my to-watch list and I can already anticipate the binge because it’s supposed to be the best.
4) Plan my next move
I’ve been in America way too long, and it’s time to skip out before all the visa regulations get crazy. Maybe back to Thailand after the burning season is over??? Or Bali?! Haven’t decided yet, but I’ll finally have time to plan.
5) Start my new series!!!
I am SO EXCITED to start a new project. The first book in my new series comes out on Halloween and I can’t wait to dig into all the early stage research and worldbuilding. It’s been killing me to have this one on the back burner. More updates (and preorder links!) coming soon, but this one is about WITCHES AND CAKES (my two favorite things in life) and I hope you love the new world as much as I do!
