We're really picking up steam now, and I think it's showing. However this monthly update is gonna be a little sparse. The fact of the matter is writing is a bit of a slow slog, and this is one of those hurry up and wait months. I'll be getting lots of feedback I imagine, and April will be jam packed with news.
I renamed the website as Ash and Feather (and explain why here), and am working on a URL migration. There may be a few minor tweaks, but don't worry, oiseaudefeu.net will redirect to the new URL, ashandfeather.com. And in other news, Ash and Feather got over 100 unique visitors last month! Woohoo!
Also, con season is upon us! I'm getting started with Sci-Fi Weekender in north Wales, immediately followed by StabCon in Southampton. I'm hoping to also hit up the Winchester Writers Festival and the Young Adult Literature Convention this summer. I went two years ago and had a blast.
I'm still looking for opportunities for freelance writing and editing, so if you like the feel of my writing, please drop me a line.
While the reading and thus the reviews may have slowed a little bit, I'm looking to ramp that back up, starting with The Hate U Give tomorrow.
As always, please note that my buy links in my reviews are Amazon Associate links, so if you make a purchase I may get a little kickback from that. It doesn't increase your prices, just helps to support the site.
This is the month I hope to start hearing back from the handful of competitions I've entered, including NYC Midnight's Short Story Competition. I'm pretty sure I'm going to get raked over the coals for missing the brief, but I'm very happy with the story I wrote. So there's that.
I bit the bullet and added a lot of content to the Writing page. It's now much more of a well-rounded portfolio showcasing my ability to easily genre-hop. This is important because more and more eyes are on this page and it's important that it's showing me at my best.
It means COSPLAY. And hopefully more writing as I continue to put myself out there via competitions and submissions. I also have a few super secret projects in the pipelines I'm hoping will come together. And of course, if there's anything you'd like to see here, let me know!
