The house had no windows, only artificial lights hanging from the ceilings. Long spider like legs dangled from above, plunging down, suddenly stopping and hanging precariously above everyone’s heads. Each studio was outfitted with glass bulbs mounted on extendable arms, stretching out from walls, reaching and wrapping around to illuminate the canvas with the best possible reflections and refractions.

First words (paragraph) of 2013.


Gray. Wednesday. Kaihaku. Moribund. August.

I started writing a new novel. These images are the inspiration. The way I see the world in my head. The story so far.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

I love the trailer for this book. I don’t remember the book being so steamy though.


And I can’t wait for the next one to come out.


I’ve been thinking about this book recently because not only do I love it, but it inspired my most recent novel, which I just re-read for the first time in 9 months. Current plan will reflect my writing process: one play through of ‘The Cults’ will equal one editing session much as it did one writing session back in November when I wrote the first draft.
