Mish Mash: Week Three and Stealing Snow Cover Reveal

Monday Mishmash is a weekly meme sharing your thoughts and happenings. You just grab a button and create your post. Sure I guess I write it differently from most but moving on....

1. Catching up on some reading with Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins and Triangles by Ellen Hopkins.

2. Made a private list on the priority manuscripts I need to finish this year.

3. Set things up so I can publish my first book by June. No more delays.

4. Getting posts ready for April's A-Z. I'm participating with two blogs. More on that in the week.

5. Watch the sinking of Shadowhunters series on Free Form. Did not enjoy this from the start and now even the most dedicated fans are starting to turn on it. The numbers have been steadily declining from a start of nearly two million viewers to under a million by episode 3. Netflix was where I slowly watched the first two and then risked the third one live. Will watch the next one just to be part of the group able to say "Should have kept the movie." I know it did not make much but it was not nearly this bad. If anyone disagrees feel free but in my opinion the show is just not good.

Stealing Snow Cover Reveal

Danielle Paige has started a new book series coming out later this year. On January 28 the cover was revealed and I must say it was quite a beauty. Even better there was an excerpt along with the reveal but first feast your eyes on this.

Summary: Seventeen-year-old Snow has spent the majority of her life within the walls of the Whittaker Institute, a high security mental hospital in upstate New York. But deep down, she knows she’s not crazy and doesn’t belong there. When she meets a mysterious, handsome new orderly and dreams about a strange twisted tree, she realizes she must escape and figure out who she really is.
Using her trusting friend Bale as a distraction, Snow breaks free and races into the nearby woods. Suddenly, everything isn’t what it seems, the line between reality and fantasy begins to blur, and she finds herself in icy Algid—her true home—with witches, thieves, and a strangely alluring boy named Kai, none of whom she’s sure she can trust. As secret after secret is revealed, Snow discovers that she is on the run from a royal lineage she’s destined to inherit, a father more powerful and ruthless than she could have imagined, and choices of the heart that could change the fate of everything…including Snow’s return to the world she once knew.
This breathtaking first volume begins the story of how Snow becomes a villain, a queen, and ultimately a hero.

So exciting and while September might seem a while away there is no better time start reserving some book buying money than before the release date. For February this hardback is on my list. Paperback (and kindle) is also available for pre-order.


  1. Cool cover.
    Sucks when a good show goes downhill. Better it stops while its still ahead.
    Working on my Challenge posts. Did you still want to be a Minion?

    1. Agreed it is very nice. Yeah a show going downhill is a sad thing to watch. Got snapped up by Joy for Minion duty.

    2. Just needed to know. Was going to give you to someone else anyway since I ended up with twelve.

  2. That is a gorgeous cover. I love it.

    I'm not impressed with Shadowhunters either. :(

  3. Very cool cover. Congrats to Paige!
    And yay you for prioritizing and getting those manuscripts in order. :)

  4. A private list? That sounds promising and good. Best of luck with all of your writing and publishing goals!

    Love the cover. The cracked mirror is intruiging. Congrats to Danielle!

  6. I love the sound of Stealing Snow.
    Two blogs. I don't know if I could ever do that again.
    And yeah, you do need to get that book published, missy!

  7. TWO A to Zs? I can't imagine. It's so hard coming up with just one!

  8. I haven't read anything by Paige, but I do like this cover! I love fantasy. Maybe I'll give this one a shot!

    Great post. :)
