{Mirror Mirror} Pretty Books, A New WIP, Gorgeous Singing And I FOUND A JOB!

Posted March 11, 2017 by Bee in Memes & Features / 20 Comments

Mirror Mirror is our feature that replaces the old Stacking The Shelves/Weekly Recap posts. Bieke decided to make her own original feature because it was more than just a STS or recap post.

In My Life

Okay so the last few weeks have been slightly bonkers. Lots happened and changed and I am so excited to tell you guys about all of it!

First, I started my new WIP! This one is a YA Urban Fantasy set in New Orleans. It’s titled THE MONSTERS WE HIDE and it’s about two demons that are not very good at being demons because they’re very nice. One of them, Kaede, is centuries old and very sad and tragic and the girl with him is technically only 9. But she’s awesome. One day, whilst escaping from the bad demon that’s after them, they end up at the home of the Eclypse circus in New Orleans, which is home to a group of people that all have abilities. They’re hiding from people too. Very bad people. And thus starts the bonding between Kaede and Cait and the group. I make it sound so awful, hahaha. But it’s actually pretty dark and tragic and sad and stabby and shooty. And people will die. (Except Kaede and Cait, they’re already dead…) I’m already 28K into it and it’s SO much fun. I love this group of people. It’s told from 3 POV’s, Kaede, Benji and Damien. The latter two are from the group. Benji is superprecious and needs all the hugs. Here is an aesthetic for you!

The three guys in the middle are Benji (left), Kaede (upper right) and Damien (lower right). Obviously. Sort of. Kind of. WHO WANTS SNIPPETS?





NEXT TO THAT, I have also found a job. YES. I started working this week and I’m really liking it so far. It’s just production, but the hours are nice and the colleagues are fun and it’s superclose to home and the pay is good. Which means I’ll have money for books. So WIN. I’m extremely happy because I’ve been looking for so long and I really needed the job. Life if finally getting back on track after the big break up two months ago. (Which is 2 months exactly today on the 11th! BONKERS.)

About that, I’m doing very well. And I do not regret it at all. It’s probably the best decision I’ve ever made. I still have sad days, but I do hope those will become less frequent now that I have a job.

Also, people, you need to check this out because it’s Beauty and The Beast and PRETTY.

AND before you go, I need you guys to check this because this is also BONKERS. That’s the theme this week. BONKERS.

So what’s been going on with you guys? How was your week? And did you get any new pretty books? Tell me about all of it in the comments!

  1. Bee,
    Your book sounds so AWESOME. I am very excited for you. Hopefully, I can pick up my WIP too, and then we can have writing parties on Twitter. Also: congrats on your new job! You’re doing great things, little bb. Keep that chin up and hopefully nothing but awesome things will come your way.
    PS: promise to come visit your blog more often. Sorry for vanishing on you. I get shy sometimes. I WILL TRY HARDER.

      Thank you Dina! 😀 And DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT. Seriously. I appreciate you stopping by. I love it when you comment. But don’t be shy, okay?? I won’t bite. Gently nibble maybe. But never bite.

    Congratulations on getting a new job! I wonder where your WIP story will go? I like making up my own stories, and they can be tragic at times, too. Speaking of sad news, my grandmother died on the beginning of the month. So my reading declined a bit. I didn’t feel like really getting into mt books. But she had a long life, having lived 92 years.

      OMG I’m so sorry Nathan! <3 I lost both my grandmothers. One was only 64 and she died 13 years ago. The other was also in her nineties and died 3 years ago. I totally get you not being able to get into reading. Lots of hugs to you. <3

  3. Congrats on your new job!! All your new book covers look so awesome – Meg and Linus and Starfish especially. I recently acquired five (!!!! help) books and am drowning in them, including Mark of the Plague by Kevin Sands and Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones.

    GOD BLESS NOLA YES. It’s one of my absolute favorite cities in the world – maybe my very favorite city. What parts of the city does your story take place in? Is there any action in the bayous?
