Today, I thought it might be fun to check in with the Dames and see what we are reading, watching, and writing. So I
spied on the Dames thru tiny cameras in their offices asked the Dames (in a totally non-stalkery way) to share some of the things they’re currently up to.
What are you reading?
Jackie Kessler: “ELEANOR & PARK by Rainbow Rowell.”
Jenna Black: “Lately, I’ve been on a thriller kick and have been reading everything John Gilstrap. He did a great presentation at Writer’s Police Academy, and I’m hooked!”
Rinda Elliott: “I’m reading my first Beri O’Dell book (DWELLER ON THE THRESHOLD) because I’m making a series spreadsheet.”
Rachel Vincent: “I’m reading THE MAZE RUNNER and an ARC from a friend.”
Devon Monk: “It’s the season for reading SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES, but I can’t find my copy. I need book recommendations, dear readers! If you’ve read something great lately, please tell me about it in the comment section.”
What are you watching?
Karen Mahoney: “I’ve just finished watching AMERICAN HORROR STORY: Coven and LOVED it, although I couldn’t actually look at the screen several times throughout. Still, it was worth it to see Jessica Lange, Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates together being awesome. My partner and I are trying to decide what to watch next, as we also finished GAME OF THRONES quite recently, too. We need to catch up on the second half of THE WALKING DEAD’s last season, and we’re considering giving HOUSE OF CARDS a try. By myself, I’m slowly working my way through ONCE UPON A TIME and have only this to say: Captain Swan forever!! 😉
Jenna Black: “I’m watching THE VOICE, AMAZING RACE, and MADAM SECRETARY, among others.”
Rachel Vincent: “I’m watching THE BIG BANG THEORY, AMERICAN HORROR STORY: Freak Show, and THE WALKING DEAD, as well as rewatching season 4 of FRIENDS.”
What are you writing?
Karen Mahoney: “I am working on copy edits for HUNTING THE DARK (coming to an ebook near you in January!) It’s the sequel to FALLING TO ASH. I’m also putting the finishing touches to a new project that will be going out on submission to editors very soon (cross your fingers for me!).”
Jackie Kessler: “I’m working on my MFA thesis, now that I’ve finally found the right beginning for it.”
Jenna Black: “A 4th Nikki Glass book, to be e-published when I have the time. The title is DIVINE DESCENDANT, and I’m about 1/3 of the way through a first draft. I can’t make a promise on a release date, but promise to tweet and otherwise post when I know.”
Rinda Elliott: “I will be sharing a *sale announcement soon* and I’m working on that book along with the third Beri O’Dell novel. :)”
Rachel Vincent: “I’m working on a *secret project*, and will soon be doing revisions on the sequel to THE STARS NEVER RISE.”
Devon Monk: “I’m revising my funny hardboiled fairytale novel I wrote a few years ago. I’m having so much fun working on it again! This will be going out as an ebook in the near-ish future.”
–Tune in tomorrow, dear readers! We’re going to open up the blog for a Q&A session. Come ask us anything and we’ll do our best to answer in the comments, in blog posts, or
thru those little cameras in friendly, totally non-stalker-y ways.
