BEHOLD! I HAVE FINISHED A NOVEL! And Now I Share Snippets + Playlist

by - 10:05 AM


YES, YOU READ THAT RIGHT. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FOUR FLIPPING YEARS I HAVE FINISHED A NOVEL I STARTED. Who'd have thunk it? Not me. At all.

It's true! I have not just been crying over college apps and lazing about on Netflix in my absence; I have also been quite productive. Aka finally finishing my WIP of three years: Karissa Goldlock's Guide to (Almost) Utterly Everything.

A small blurb:

As far back as anyone can remember, our world and theirs have been separated. Divided. An unbreakable, horridly inconvenient dimensional divide separating the fairyland world (that's mine) from the steampunk (boo hiss! we don't like them. don't root for them).
Big problems happen when people cross it. How big, you ask? Oh, just inter-dimensional war level big.
And I'm part of the group that's been cobbled together to stop it.
There's Ari, the prince who reads too many books. Anastasia, the pirate queen. Cephas, a demon scholar. Feyrin, a blind elf.
And the title character? Karissa?
That's me. I'm on the run with an axe to grind, a heist to pull off, and the talent to do it. I'm stopping at nothing to get my revenge . . . even if it means I have to pull the whole world down to hell with me.

So yes! Steampunk, sassy rogues, fae, it's all here. This is kind of everything I love mashed into one story. I doubt I'll ever pursue publication with this, but I'm still proud of all the work I put into it. So without further ado, here are a few snippets to celebrate!



























And, of course, a playlist:



That's all I have for today! What story are you currently working on? What's the last one you finished? Which excerpt was your favorite? Comment below, and have a lovely day. <3

  4. Your book sounds so fun! It has a great title, a captivating voice, snark, adventure, quirky characters, meta humor, and Scooby-Doo references. It's definitely my kind of book. Karissa is an awesome heroine. I would totally impulse buy this at any bookstore.

    Hans Zimmer, Greatest Showman, Lindsey Stirling, and John Williams??? Your playlist is fantastic!

    Also, I took a look at your bio and: "Lover of Dungeons & Dragons, irony and the Oxford comma." I'm dying. x'D
