A Day in the Life of an Author
by Elise Kova


Seven A.M., the usual morning lineup... Start on the chores and sweep til the floor's all clean. Polish, and wax, do laundry, and mop, and shine up --- 

WAIT A MINUTE.

That's not a day in my life. I'm not a Disney princess. Okay, jokes aside... ;) 

One of the things I'm trying to get better at, especially right now while I'm between manuscripts, is sticking to a set schedule. Right now, my "average day" varies wildly, and I do a lot, but in no set order. That being said, I'll run down a sort of "sample day" that usually most days are composed of... in some arrangement... 

7-9am - Wake up, check emails, drink tea, catch up on news, read. 

9-10am - Respond to emails 

10-12pm - Marketing. This can be scheduling social media, making graphics, organizing events, responding to interviews, etc... 

12-2pm - Lunch and personal errands like shopping, or showering... 

2pm-3pm - Writing/editing 

3-4pm - Some kind of crisis that came up during the day that I have to take care of. 

4-5pm - Writing/editing 

5-7pm - I usually get distracted toward the end of the day, so this is a sort of "catch all" time to do whatever else I need to do while I make dinner. 

Of course, some days I get up and write non-stop in deep flow. So my schedule varies widely!
The Dragons of Nova
Loom Saga #2
Elise Kova
Publication Date: July 11, 2017
Genre: YA Fantasy
Cvareh returns home to his sky world of Nova with the genius crafter Arianna as his temperamental guest. The mercurial inventor possesses all the Xin family needs to turn the tides of a centuries-old power struggle, but the secrets she harbors must be earned with trust -- hard to come by for Ari, especially when it comes to Dragons. On Nova, Ari finds herself closer to exacting vengeance against the traitor who killed everything -- and everyone – she once loved. But before Ari can complete her campaign of revenge, the Crimson Court exposes her shadowed past and reveals something even more dangerous sparking between her and Cvareh.

While Nova is embroiled in blood sport and political games, the rebels on Loom prepare for an all-out assault on their Dragon oppressors. Florence unexpectedly finds herself at the forefront of change, as her unique blend of skills -- and quick-shooting accuracy -- makes her a force to be reckoned with. For the future of her world, she vows vengeance against the Dragons.

Before the rebellion can rise, though, the Guilds must fall.
