Lizzie, Preterhumans

Updates from the world of Katherine

Crux, by  Moira RogersIt’s only a few short weeks till Amaranth: The Preterhumans Book 1 is released. Excited would be an understatement, to say the very least. I have not yet received the first draft of edits on Verdant: The Preterhumans Book 2, so I’m holding off finishing Ash: The Preterhumans Book 3 until then. Additionally, there are some sections that need some major rewriting (the perils of two marathon months of nothing but writing, I suppose).

I just picked up a new eBook to read via a contest. It’s called “Crux” by Moira Rogers. More information on it and the contest can be found at Bitten by Books ( Definitely give it a look! So far it's looking pretty interesting.

On that note, I'm also almost done with Deathwish by Rob Thurman. I'm really enjoying the alternating points of view. Niko remains my favorite characters -- but I definitely dig Cal's sense of humor. The pacing is just absolutely amazing: taunt and almost terrifying. No, scratch that "almost". There has been a few times when I've caught myself shivering and wanting to check under my bed for "the Big Bad". I'll say no more than that, though, in case someone hasn't read this series yet (though I can't imagine why not), except to say: GO BUY THEM!

On a final note, there is a slim possibility that I might be at Dragon*Con this year. My friend Christopher is trying very hard to bribe D. Marie and me into attending. If he succeeds, I'll definitely post it here or over at Thoughts of a Struggling Writer.

And it's back to work for me.
