Whew. It’s been a while since I last posted.
My summer solstice resolution for this year is to get better about posting on my blog. Let’s see how that goes… *sheepish grin* I know, I know, I’ve only made this resolution almost every single time I’ve noticed the sad state of my blog, but hope springs eternal.

I’m still in a period of “katje plans; the Universe sighs and then laughs hysterically”, so~

The latest in the wtfery is getting the mumps immediately after buying a book cover for the WIP I’ve had in the wings since 2016. Yep, you read right – the mumps. Who even gets the mumps nowadays? Furthermore, how does one get the mumps while hermiting at home in almost complete seclusion?

Spontaneous mumps. Just another one of those little mysteries of my life.

The idea was that I’d finish up the fairytale re-tellings because they’re easier to focus on than Phoenix Awoken. First on the docket is Silenced, the Little Mermaid re-telling (bit obvs here, yeah?). Then, A Crown of Feathers, my Six Swans re-telling.

That’s still the plan, albeit a bit scrambled due to sick! fever! complete loss of ability to eat! wooziness! and all the other bits of the chronic illness that has no name but I shall persevere.

For now, have a look at the absolutely gorgeous cover I have.

Isn’t it absolutely stunning? I might need to fiddle a bit with the title – I don’t want to block off the clock, but right now the title seems a bit scrunched on the bottom…

Ah well, plenty of time to fiddle. I’m still mumpsy and my head is still all woozy.

Let me know what you think of the cover and any suggestions for the title placement!
