Six chapters to go

And the first Titans book will be done. Technically, this is the second book, but that’s beside the point. The fact remains that it’ll be done, and I can go on to write the next one (or previous one. God, I’m confusing myself). And what’s the problem? you may ask. The problem is my creativity Read More


What follows is mostly rambling and has nothing to do with books or writing, and I’m pretty sure I’ve posted about this before, but I needed to vent. Does anyone else live in this state of being constantly worried about everything? I don’t mean now, after the U.S. election, when millions of people live in Read More

I’ve been quiet like a mouse

Well, not really, but I haven’t been around much, and it’s not all due to writing.   The day job has been hectic, since the current situation in Greece has made us look for options in exports, and that’s meant major redesign of our products, along with all the paperwork that magically can only be Read More

Am I weird?

Scratch that. I’m weird. I know I am. I’m just wondering if I’m weird in this specific scenario. Six days ago, I received the following—very polite—message on Goodreads, by someone I’ll call Reader: Dear Ms.Lazu I’m very interested in your books.They seem mysterious,dark and cool books and those are my favorite ones.So I would be Read More

There go my summer plans…

See that? It’s my left arm. In a cast. In July. You’d think in my thirty four years on this earth, I’d have learned how to walk on flat surfaces. You’d be wrong! On Saturday, I was walking on our summer house’s porch, both legs slipped from under me, and I reached out to break Read More

Not my best week ever

It’s actually not a good week for anyone in the Lazu household. If you wanna know why, read on but be warned: it’s more or less a pity party. Why this week has been no fun – by Sotia Lazu Last week we decided our need for a car that would fit two adults, a Read More

I just want my bloody tea!

My mother and father in-law are visiting. Little One is getting christened this weekend, and they’re staying for another two-three weeks after that. In general, they’re wonderful people, and I love them. There’s only one point of tension in our relationship: MIL is a nutritionist, and I’m overweight…and doing next to nothing to change that.

Pet Peeves – 6

I decided to keep count of these, just so I can one day say, “I am annoyed by xyz number of things.” I know, my goals in life are weird. Anyway, I thought number 6 merited a post of its own, because it recently made me rant to anyone who’d listen. 6) People who return Read More

Pet Peeves–Guess who’s got a million of them!

If you know me well, you’ve probably realized I’m not the most easy going person in the world. If you don’t know me that well yet, you’re gonna find out sooner or later, so why should I try to hide it? All sorts of things bug me, annoy me, or piss me off, and I Read More
