That's pretty much what I'm doing right now, flailing helplessly.  I'm cooked. The last couple weeks have been real killers at work. Plus, I've got a book releasing and another book due.

So far, the only creative thing I've produced all week was this (after Sunday's Game of Thrones episode):

So no real blog post today.

However, in an effort to recharge my batteries, I have been reading.

Have you read The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen?


If you haven't, I suggest you leave this blog and acquire the book immediately. There is so much to be learned from Nielsen's The False Prince. The last time I met a narrator as tricky and deceptive as Sage was in Code Name Verity.

Go read it now.

Why are you still here?


  1. I'm definitely flailing too and probably will for awhile. So tired these days. OMG, I loved, loved, loved The False Prince. Glad you did too.

  2. Fellow flailer here -- editing Book 3 while Book 4 keeps sticking its nose in and demanding attention. I'm not even going to look at The False Prince until I'm finished with my edits -- it sounds the literary equivalent of quicksand.

  3. I loved that book! I've been trying to get my hands on the next ones!

  4. I haven't read it, but just added it to my Reading List. Thanks! I hope things get better for you soon!!!!

  5. Game of Thrones. WOOT! Where will the story lines go now????

  6. I have read THE FALSE PRINCE and really need to find the sequels!!

  7. Hi Dianne .. have a peaceful weekend and hope you can get some recovery mode. Happy Easter .. cheers Hilary
