My Publishing Journey – 2 Months from Release

Hi folks!

As you may know, my book Devonna is coming out in October and I thought I’d share a little bit about how the publishing process is going so far in my journey. What the publishing house (Evernight Teen) required of me and stuff like that.

I just figured this is the kind of post I would’ve liked to read a couple of months back to know what to expect, because right now I live in a bubble of unexpected emails and requests and it is MAKING ME REALLY ANXIOUS.

But somehow, I manage. (Because I must manage.) (And, yes, this is a The Office reference because The Office is life.)

5 Worst First Chapter Pet Peeves

Lately, I find myself starting a ton of new books and starting new ones before I finish them, and I realized that’s because for me, first chapters are CRAZY IMPORTANT.

If you don’t hook me in the first paragraph of your book, or at least the first chapter, there’s a good chance I’ll start reading something else, because let’s be real: this ain’t 1895 with only 5 fiction books at the library, folks.

THERE ARE TONS OF BOOKS OUT THERE, PEOPLE, AND I GET ANXIETY ATTACKS WHEN I THINK I WON’T BE ABLE TO READ THEM ALL.

That being said.

I’ve gathered my five worst first chapter pet peeves that will probably make me start reading something else when I come across them, and here they are.

Mini Halloween Book Tag

Hello everybody! October is almost over which means 2 things:

  1. Candies and chocolate come to mama//Halloween
  2. NANOWRIMO OH MY GOD WILL I MAKE IT OUT ALIVE?

In-between panic attacks, I felt like doing a quick book tag on the theme of Halloween, and of course I found out there’s a LOT of tags on that theme out there, and I got a little overwhelmed at the idea of finding one, since most of them are quite long. So I just decided to make my own little Halloween Tag.

Here it is!

Top 5 Books to Read During Back to School

September usually marks the beginning of a new school term, and I honestly didn’t think I’d be going to school this year, but life has a way of driving on my plans with a bulldozer.

For a couple of weeks, and against all my survival instincts, I swear, I’ve been really interested in a course with the University of Toronto that’s only available in class, and I decided to scream: I’M HERE, DEBTS, FIRE AWAY!

I registered. Continue reading “Top 5 Books to Read During Back to School”

DEAN & LILY
Season 1 Finale


At the end of the Color Stage, Malone transfers a file into our wristbands, telling us it will only be available for two hours. Then it starts pouring and the wind takes a violent turn, so we all hurry to get home. I open the file in the warmth of my bed, with the rain rattling against my window.

The file includes thousands of banned information and pictures about famous paintings.

I look at the beauty and the paint strokes I would never have dared to try in my wildest dreams. Some of them don’t make any sense, but they hit me anyway. Like there’s a the story between the line of each color.

Colors.

So many of them. Continue reading “Dean & Lily – Episode 9 (Season 1 Finale)”
