“the more I watched the characters grow and learn, the more attached I became until I reached the point that I spent the last half of the book screaming out loud at them. I mean, how was I supposed to live if any of these fictional darlings died??”

The Avid Reader

“If you love a good dystopian, science fiction book then you are going to love Quanta Rewind and all of the Shadow Ravens novels.”

All The Things I’ll Do After Quanta Rewind

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

I’ve been majorly MIA the past few weeks (months?!) and Quanta Rewind is to blame. Lately, I spend all day every day at my desk, working on the draft and listening to ambient arctic noise

As you can imagine, I’m an inch away from a total breakdown.

The good news is the draft is juuuuust about finished. Bloggers will be able to download it on NetGalley at the beginning of April, and we’re still signing up for the blog tour, so hop on if you’d love to host!

I’ve survived thus far by consuming near-lethal quantities of Cherry Coke and dreaming of all the fun I’ll have when this deadline is in the bag. Thought I’d share a few of the things I CANNOT WAIT TO DO after Quanta Rewind is off my desk:

1) Shower

Hygiene is the first item to go when the deadlines hit. My hair looks like I’ve been moisturizing with Crisco, and I need to get back on the cleanliness schedule of a normal human person.

2) Play Breath of the Wild for 375603560q9479345 hours

It has come to my attention that I’m a grown adult and shouldn’t get sucked into buying a $300 console plus accessories just to have a Zelda machine… But then again OPEN WORLD ZELDA WITH COOKING AND WHO CARES ABOUT MONEY. I’m going to hunt down a Switch and spend a solid week gathering mushrooms. That’s just how I roll.

3) Catch up on dramas

I’m ridiculously behind on my drama watching. I got sidetracked with all this work (lame!) so I stalled out on Jealousy Incarnate, The Princess Weiyoung, and Hwarang, but I’m determined to catch up. PLUS, I have Goblin on my to-watch list and I can already anticipate the binge because it’s supposed to be the best.

4) Plan my next move

I’ve been in America way too long, and it’s time to skip out before all the visa regulations get crazy. Maybe back to Thailand after the burning season is over??? Or Bali?! Haven’t decided yet, but I’ll finally have time to plan.

5) Start my new series!!!

I am SO EXCITED to start a new project. The first book in my new series comes out on Halloween and I can’t wait to dig into all the early stage research and worldbuilding. It’s been killing me to have this one on the back burner. More updates (and preorder links!) coming soon, but this one is about WITCHES AND CAKES (my two favorite things in life) and I hope you love the new world as much as I do!

Catch you on the flipside of this deadline!!!

<3 Lola

Hectic Monday!

Monday, September 12th, 2016

I’m finally back to LA after a cross-country drive that almost broke my spirit. Three days alone in the car is waaaaaaaaaaaay too long!

Now that I’m back, there’s so much to catch you up on:

1. Aileen and I totally failed to take pictures at DragonCon

We went and it was wild, but we were working so hard to navigate the crowds that we never took a break for photos. Wish I had some pics to share, but in retrospect, it’s probably better this way. There were a lot of inappropriate man thongs that you don’t need burned into your memory.

2. Quanta Reset is Launching!

I feel so unprepared. A million things need doing before launch, but we’re starting to get reviews from Netgalley and I’m so excited that you guys are liking the story so far. Only two more weeks!! Where did the time go???

Quanta Reset (The Shadow Ravens Series, #3) by Lola Dodge

3. Shattered Pack

Aileen is writing like a madwoman and getting the book finished up for November and I get to read all the drafts. You guys are definitely going to love this one. Meredith is the best!

Shattered Pack (Alpha Girl Series, #6) by Aileen Erin, releasing November 2016

4. Chinese Time

Because I don’t have enough on my plate, I signed up for Mandarin class two nights a week. I’m hoping this will help me get through my guilt for living in Taiwan for so long without learning to communicate. Right now, “I want candy” is still the most impressive thing I can say. Look forward to me showing off my new vocabulary all over the place when I finally learn some practical phrases!

5. Never Driving Again

Did I mention three days in the car??? Alone???? Atlanta to LA was zero fun. The highlight of my drive was my overnight stay in Salisaw, Oklahoma, where I got ice cream and bagel omelettes at Braum’s and found the secret restaurant where all the werewolves get their tacos. But, yeah. Never driving again. I might even Uber to my classes because I’ve spent way too much time behind the wheel lately.

 

This can’t be a coincidence… 😱

Have a lovely week out there!

We’re Going to DragonCon!

Monday, August 29th, 2016

I’ve been so overwhelmed trying to get ready for DragonCon, that I never announced we were GOING to DragonCon. Surprise!

Aileen and I will be trawling the halls this weekend with 70,000 new friends and I’m pretty sure we’re both going to be melted into introverted little puddles by Monday. At least she’s used to SDCC and such…but this is my first really huge con and I’m still trying to wrap my head around how crazy it’s going to be. I’ve tried looking through the program and there are way, way, way, WAAAAAY too many amazing things to do. All I know is I want to check out the zombie survival panels and buy a ton of plushies.

We’re not doing any panels of our own (this time!) but I’ll be stocked up with bookmarks, so say hi if you see us in the crowd!

Are you going, too???

Wish us luck!

Ink Monster’s Weekend Playlist, 8/26/16

Friday, August 26th, 2016

When the other Ink Monsters suggested that I start posting a weekend playlist, I said (direct quote): “This is going to be a mess.”

AND IT IS.

But I’m subjecting you all to my music in the hopes that someone, somewhere will jam out to all the K-Pop with me. How can you not love Chaelin?!

Weekend Playlist 8.26

 

Happy Friday wherever you are!

Monday in LA!

Monday, August 15th, 2016

It’s still Monday (in my timezone) and I’m sneaking in a blog before I turn into a pumpkin. Today, I’m coming at you from the rolling hills of Los Angeles, where I’ll be hanging up my passport for a year or so.

1. Los Angeles

I’m so excited I get to stay in LA! The food is crazy delicious, I can get involved in any class/activity imaginable, and I have so many new cafes to explore. It’s such a cool city, I have zero worries about getting bored… But I am kind of apprehensive about this whole parallel parking thing. I remember the last time I parallel parked (Five-ish years ago in Pittsburgh?) and gave my passengers a solid twenty minutes of laughter. But that was before I had a back-up camera, so maybe now it will be okay??? (crossing fingers)

I'm Single Nobody Loves Me

2. Wait But Hi

I ventured out into society over the weekend (THE SHOCK) because I got chosen to join one of the Wait But Why meetups taking place in LA. (I’ve mentioned the blog before.) Unfortunately, Tim Urban did not show up in person (so I couldn’t propose marriage yet), but I met 15 super interesting people and we shared a lot of wine and great conversation. Writers, directors, film editors, divers, MBAs, actors, musicians–such an awesome and eclectic group!

Wait But Why New Post Every Sometimes

3. Tessa Dare

Melissa at LilyElement got me started on Tessa Dare, and Tessa is yet another reason I’m excited about LA–she’s giving a talk at the local RWA chapter next weekend. How lucky am I?? Her Spindle Cove novella Beauty and the Blacksmith is free for a few more days, so check it out if you’ve never read her before. Her stories are always cute and hilarious with satisfying HEAs. They make me feel so cozy and happy!

Beauty and the Blacksmith by Tessa Dare

4. No Man’s Sky

These are the times I’m bummed to be a Mac owner. The reviews are coming out for No Man’s Sky and people are saying it has a boring resource gathering aspect, but I’m sitting over here like I LOVE BORING RESOURCE MANAGEMENT GAMES AND I WANT TO NAME PLANTS. Since I can’t just pop out and buy a gaming PC, I’m killing time until the Mac port release by watching playthroughs on YouTube. I highly recommend Shirley Curry’s gaming channel. She’s a grandma who refers to her subscribers as “grandkids.” It’s TOO CUTE. “Oh no!” Shirley gasps. “That’s too far away. Oh no! I can’t go there. How far away is the planet?”

5. Book finished

Maybe I should’ve led with this, but QUANTA RESET IS FINISHED!!!

The file is on its way to be converted for Netgalley. YESSSSS!

Bubbles_ponyjoy

I’m so excited to be done. It kind of came down to the wire with this deadline (it always seems to…) but I’m happy to share the story with you all and I hope you love it!

Quanta Reset Blog Tour September 20th-27th hosted by YA Bound

Happy Monday!
