June Wrap Up

JUNEWRAPUP

With the year half over, I’m feeling a little melancholy. I started the year with a list of goals and aspirations and just don’t feel like I’m making enough progress. Here is to the second half of the year and greater productivity and positivity.

In the meantime, I have read far more books this year so far than I had expected to. Initially, my Goodreads goal was set at 35 which I surpassed so I bumped it up to 45. Currently, I am at 40 books completed and will most likely bump up my Goodreads goals again. Either way, this is what Literary Weaponry was up to in June!

Personal

This month I did my final edits on a book I’d been working on since November. I was very excited and decided, after much debate and a very hurtful rejection letter, to publish this book through Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing. Unfortunately, the hoops they are making me jump through to do this are frustrating and I’m stalled at a part of the submission but I will get there. Writing is my passion and greatest love (outside my family) and nothing will stop me from succeeding.

I also started the notes on my next WIP this month! It has turned out to be a little more sci-fi than I expected it to be but I’m still thrilled. We have time travel, alternate realities, perilous peril, awkward sexual tension, a group of young adults finding themselves, and so much adventure! I truly hope that I’ll be able to share this with you all at some point because this story has yanked at my attention like no other.

That is it for June. I hope you all had a fabulous month and I hope to see you all again in July!

  1. Girl I’m so proud of you for your WIP! I share the same feelings about being excited for a project 🙂 I’m curious to see a review for Beastly Bones; it’s not my favorite in the series but it’s still so much fun overall!

    1. Thank you, dear!
      I decided to not do a full review of Beastly Bones. It was one of those middle of the road enjoyment books that I just couldn’t come up with much to say about. “People died. There were cows and fish kittens. Needed more dragon.” Not to mention I’m mad about the journalist’s fate. I could have read an entire book just about her. Hrumph.
