It’s supposed to storm today, which greatly excites me. I have been craving a storm for weeks. Not anything too major, because I don’t want people or property to get hurt, but I do like thunder and rain and all that.

Anyway, I got the edits back on Lullaby, the second book in the Watersong series, from editor Rose, and I’m pretty excited to dive into them. I love doing edits. I don’t know why. Maybe I’m a freak that way. Plus, I want to get started on Tidal, the third book in the series, and I didn’t want to do that until I started the edits.

It’s only a month until Ascend, the final book in the Trylle Trilogy, comes out. I’m really excited about it. So many more people have discovered the Trylle books since they’ve hit stores, and I’m really, really anxious to see what you all think about the last book.

The book blogger at Paranormal Indulgence declared Loki her Book Boyfriend for March, and wrote this great blog about him and the Trylle books. You should check it out, but be warned, there are a few spoilers from Torn if you haven’t read it yet.

Also, I re-made the soundtracks for Switched, Torn, and Ascend because I like to make soundtracks for things. I actually make the soundtracks while I’m writing, because that’s the music I listen to as I write, but then I edit them down when I put them together. My current favorite playlist is the one for Wake.

Oh, I also made this little page, because I’ve been getting a LOT of questions about the movie adaptations of the Trylle books lately.  So if you want to know what the deal with the movie is, check out the page: here. I promise to update the page if/when new information comes in

This blog isn’t very exciting. But I promise to write something more exciting tomorrow. I’m not sure what. But I assure you that tomorrow will be fun.

  • I found switched and ascend at Target one day, and stayed up all night reading both books. I can’t believe I have to wait so many days for ascend. It’s killing me! I started reading the books again 🙂 Okay, this is going to sound strange, but my heart seriously skips a beat and I get butterflies in my stomach when I see Finn’s name in the books. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your books. I can’t wait to read everything else you’ve written.

    I can not wait till ascend! I have been dreaming of the first two books for days! I didn’t know you wrote more books but I would put switched up there in the best series I’ve read of all time! Keep writing doll 🙂

    Don’t worry about your blog being exciting. What I see, from those who read your blog, is that people are more than happy to read what’s in *your* head. You are liked because you are unique, and if you keep that vibe going, your blog will continue to be exciting enough.

    I’m looking forward to that upcoming exciting blog post but don’t be so hard on yourself. Your posts are fun and who doesn’t like creating soundtracks for novels? Soundtracks have such a high impact on a film/story that they give out Oscars for the best one each year. Maybe Blink 182 can do a special track for your Trylle trilogy 😉

    Lucky, we havnt gotten storms up here yet! But it was windy today. My book soul mate right now is Peeta Mellerk from Hunger Games, but Peter from MBA was all I could think about all summer. And it was Finn a few weeks ago. I have many literature soul mates lol.

    It’s incredible how much music can influence and inspire. I have a “writing” playlist that I am always updating and changing, depending on what I’m working on. Thanks for sharing your playlists! 🙂

  • This post was very interesting to me. Glad your editing is going well and will check out page on movie deals.

    i have finished reading Switched and Torn and cant wait for Ascend to come out! i have been wondering that if you had a say in the cast for the movie who would you pick for each character??

    So…I preordered Ascend, seeing how I sped through the first two within a day or so. 🙂 Kind of cool to see a fellow Minnesotan kickin a little ass. You’re very talented. I can’t wait to read the third installment.
