What I´m reading

I absolutely loved SOMETHING LIKE NORMAL by Trish Doller. The voice is amazing and I felt so invested in the characters. She is now an instant-buy for me!

I am about to start BLEED LIKE ME by Christa Desir. I bought my copy yesterday!

Bleed like me

What I’m Writing

I need need need to get started…I have written a few hundred words on Monday and yesterday I spent the day running errands, trying to get some of the house hunting and paperwork done…but today, I am writing.

What else I´ve been up to

House hunting, enjoying crab cakes. YUM! We went to this little restaurant in Edgewater and I loved it: the atmosphere and the food!


And…I am gearing up for ONE DREAM ONLY´s release day. I am planning a day of fun and prizes on Facebook. I would love if you joined and don´t hesitate to invite your friends 🙂

What works for me

Using the what-if questions…Not too long ago, I sat down and wrote a bunch of questions, just letting my mind go and I found an aspect of Emilia (main character of ALWAYS SECOND BEST) that I had not seen coming.

I can’t wait to check all your posts and see what you’ve been up to 🙂

  1. OMG Emilia gets her own book? YAY!!!!!! Congrats on the move and writing those words 🙂 Good luck with the rest of your week, Elodie!!! xx

    1. Thanks 🙂 Emilia gets her own book and then Becca will too…it is indeed exciting, especially because I am writing this one in dual POV. Crossing my fingers I can pull it off. Hope you have a great Wednesday, Rachel!

  2. Yay for ONE DREAM ONLY! Can’t wait! I hope you enjoy BLEED LIKE ME — actually, “enjoy” is probably the wrong word for that book. But still, it’s incredible! Have a wonderful week, Elodie!

    1. I was very impressed with FAULT LINE, the way that book made me think and pause. Such an important book. I can´t wait to start BLEED LIKE ME… I am so very excited about ONE DREAM ONLY coming out soon. It seems surreal 🙂

  3. Congratulations on your coming release!

    I only had one crab cake that I can remember before I went kosher, and I loved the taste. I used to love seafood, though it’s all just a memory since I’ve been both kosher and vegetarian.

    1. Thanks! I can´t wait for people to get to know Natalya even better in ONE DREAM ONLY… Since we´re back in Maryland, I´m pretty sure we´ll be sampling crab cakes in different places 🙂 Hope you´re having a great Wednesday!

  4. BLEED LIKE ME sounds very interesting. I’ll have to put it on my TBR list. And wow, what a beautiful cover for ONE DREAM ONLY! Can’t wait to read it 🙂 Good luck with the release!

    1. Thanks a lot, Kim! 🙂 I love my cover designer, I think he´s magical :-))) BLEED LIKE ME does sound intense, Christa´s last book FAULT LINE really made me pause and think…she´s one talented writer!

  5. You’ve been so busy with the move, the house-hunting, and settling in, so don’t feel too badly about not getting as much writing done as you would have liked. You’ll get to it when you can! Just pre-ordered my copy of ONE DREAM ONLY. 🙂 I’m not sure if I said this before, but your cover is very eye-catching. I haven’t eaten lunch yet, so those crab cakes are really making me hungry. Yum! Have a great week, Elodie!

    1. Thank you so much, Jaime! 🙂 Crossing my fingers you enjoy it! And an email should be coming your way very soon, I need an update 🙂

  6. Elodie, all I can say is crab cakes – YUM! Living in Ireland I haven’t had a crab cake in two years.

    So exciting that the launch of ONE DREAM ONLY is coming up! You will have to share with us what you need to do to prepare for your launch – I’d love to know the details and steps you take. 🙂

    1. Thanks Sara 🙂 Those crab cakes were very very yummy 🙂 and for the Facebook event, I am preparing a post for tomorrow to remind people it´s coming and explain how I´ve organized it and some of the surprises coming during that day!
