I finished copy edits for LOOP last week. It's getting real, peeps. Funny how hard it was to Fed Ex that manuscript to my editor when I was done. I'm in the thick of writing Book 2 right now, and finalizing LOOP seems so...final. It probably wouldn't be as big a deal if the book weren't time travel. Those details pop back up.
Speaking of popping back up, Boo has started sleeping through the night this week. I wish I could say I feel like a new woman, but I've stayed up too late to fully enjoy the benefits. (Dang you, Sherlock!)
Which brings me to coffee.
I've become a little obsessed with my Keurig.
Fine. A lot obsessed with it.
I made it through undergrad, grad school, crazy long work hours, having a baby, writing a time travel novel, querying and subbing said novel, and various stressful whatnots along the way without becoming a daily coffee drinker.
Baby #2 broke me.
I flip that Keurig on the moment I wake up. I have a dedicated coffee drawer. And cabinet. I seriously considered thanking coffee in my Acknowledgements.
I. Love. Coffee.
In theory, now that Boo is sleeping through the night, I can and should cut down.
Not gonna happen.
(Oh, and this post was not sponsored by Keurig. Sigh. A girl can dream.)

My name's Karen Akins. And my debut YA sci-fi novel LOOP is coming out October 21, 2014 with St. Martin's Press. It's all sorts of time travelly goodness. I'm a self-professed geek--also a wife to Hubbykins, a mom to the Pea and Boo, and a follower of Jesus. And, occasionally, I find time to vacuum. I'm repped by the marvelous Victoria Marini at Gelfman Schneider Literary Agency.
