Catching Up

Good morning from Lincolnshire! 🥰 I finally found some real life cherry blossoms over the bank holiday weekend and I’m just a happy kid, as you can see here:

I’m starting my new full time job today, which makes me both nervous and excited at the same time. I’m still not able to quit the corporate world and live my full time author dreams alas 😂 but I do have some publishing-related stuff in the horizon. And with my work being an actual 9 to 5 as opposed to 9-to-5-and-beyond-as-necessary (🤣) I’m hoping to have some more time to work on those dreams. Wish me luck! 🙏

Also, today is newsletter day! 💌 Please feel free to subscribe if you haven’t yet, but if you want the short version of what’s going on:

  • I finally create a reader group! Thus we now have The Marienettes💃, which you’re more than welcome to join if you’d love more regular updates on my shenanigans 🥰 We even have a “beginner’s guide” in case you’d like to check out my other works, although my website’s About section also has links to my publications and socials.
  • I can now officially announce that we finally have an audiobook edition for Hotel Fen, narrated by the superbly talented Rebecca Lemke! 🎧 If you like Norse mythology, lit RPG, and the song Hotel California, you just might love the vibes of this book. It’s not YA but NA, so we recommend 17+ for violence and fade to black level romantic content.
  • To celebrate the audiobook’s release, we’re having a launch party this Saturday! Join me, my co-author Meri Benson, Rebecca, and some surprise guests for an hour of live readings, performances, Q&As, and fun and games 🥳 The stream will be via Zoom at 8AM CST / 2PM UK / 9PM PH. Meeting ID’s 995 8308 0480 and the passcode is 761331 😉

Enough of me, let’s hear about you! 😘 It’s been a while and now I’m here, really here, to catch up! Please please do leave a comment, I’ve missed hanging around this part of the internet and talking to you guys ❤️

Got a book you’d like me to review or an author you’d like me to feature? Drop me a line! 💕 You can also subscribe to my newsletter for free short stories, special offers, and writing opportunities.

    1. Thank you, Harmony! Hugs 💕 An hour in and I have a funny work story already: the UK keyboard is not my friend 😂 I mean some keys are in places other than where I’m used to, so I’ve been messing up passwords and taking up a long time to type chat/email responses, haha! Part of the settling in.

      I hope you’re doing well! How was your weekend? 😊

      1. Hubby and I celebrated our 3rd Wedding Anniversary. Can’t believe it’s been three years already, lols. We had a totally relaxing time! I’m laughing at the keyboard thing. Some years ago, I ended up with an American keyboard, and only then realised there were differences 😂 Needless to say, I returned it and searched for a UK one 🙂

      2. Oh wow, congratulations! 💖 3 years is a long time, but time is funky like that in that it can feel like no time’s passed at all too? 😄

        I might end up getting a UK keyboard at this rate since I’ll end up using my work laptop more and will acclimatize to the key placements soon enough 😂 And I have to get back to writing, so there’s that! Haha.

    1. Thank you, Staci! 😊 These big things have kind of thrown me off in a loop, but they’re all good things so I’m just steadily rowing back to the shore, haha. How are you? How’s the family?

      1. It’s hard to complain when my granddaughter just hit the three-month mark. She’s the light of my life. I guess I can complain a little, as my daughter’s family lives ten hours away. But I’m working on moving closer to them. Thanks for asking.


  1. Lots of exciting news, Marie. Congrats on the job and the audiobook launch! I’ve been mostly offline for several days and am playing a bit of catch up myself. Happy spring!
