I Didn’t Expect That To Happen

So back a good while ago, when I was just coming up with the concept and characters for The Necromancer’s Daughter I realised that my protagonist shared some features with a local singer. Mainly the hair and eyes.

And I thought “Great, now I have a visual shorthand to use when telling writing friends about the story and character” – if, of course, I could find a) people who knew her b) decent pictures to show people who didn’t.

I ended up not having that problem, as that singer was Lorde and… I’m sure you know what happened with her.

Ha ha ha oops.


It’s linkspam time again! This time around I have been reading a lot about gender and sexism in YA, but that is not all that is featured in this linkspam.

Got anything you think I might like to read? Link it below in comments.
