Reclaiming Shilo Snow by Mary Weber

Reclaiming Shilo Snow (The Evaporation of Sofi Snow #2)
Author: Mary Weber
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: March 6, 2018
Genre: Young Adult, Sci-Fi, Dystopia

Trapped on the ice-planet of Delon, gamer girl Sofi and Ambassador Miguel have discovered that nothing is what it seems, including their friends. On a quest to res-cue her brother, Shilo, a boy everyone believes is dead, they must now escape and warn Earth of Delon’s designs on humanity. Except the more they unearth of the planet and Sofi’s past, the more they feel themselves unraveling, as each new reve-lation has Sofi questioning the very existence of reality.

Meanwhile, back on Earth, Sofi’s mom, Inola, is battling a different kind of unravel-ing: a political one that could cost lives, positions, and a barely-rebuilt society, should they discover the deal made with the Delonese.

But there’s a secret deeper than all that. One locked away inside Sofi and ticking away with the beginnings, endings, and answers to everything. Including how to save humanity.

10 Things I Wish I’d Known Before Becoming An Author

I get asked this question often enough that, when I saw Jen suggested it as a topic for this blog post, I was like, um, yes, that one. Because asking what I wish I’d known before becoming an author is like asking what I wish I’d known before getting married or becoming a mom or just about anything else.

The answer is “almost EVERYTHING.”

Not because if I’d known, I would’ve done things much differently, but because I would’ve given myself a lot more grace. So perhaps in reading this, you’ll maybe give a nod or two and suddenly find yourself extending your heart a bit more grace too. <3 span="">

For instance, I wish I’d known:

1) That I would spend more time writing on my bed than sleeping in it. Meaning, this career is hard work, but it’s also beautiful.

2) That every time I reach page 80 on every single one of my books, I realize the book is horrible and then have to go back and rework the storyline. This is normal and it’s actually not horrible. This is just part of your process.

3) I wish I’d known that there are far more people who are kind than those who like to criticize. Press into the good ones – they will be your sanity on the days when the others make you feel like giving up.
4) Also, Cheetos are a totally legitimate form of sustenance when you’re on deadline.

5) I wish I’d known to take mental snapshots of even the moments that seem mundane. Because they never are.

6) Ignore the rules about success. Just walk in such a way that at the end of each day, each month, each year, you can look back and say you lived life well. THAT is true success.

7) The kind hearts of readers will be one of the most beautiful things you’ve ever been honored to experience.

8) Your family and relationships will support you more than you can ever imagine. But also, they are the things in life that will last forever. A career does not. Invest in them. Invest in eternity.

9) Learn to write on airplanes. It will be a saving grace.

10) It’s okay to not be perfect.
And really – what is perfection anyway?
