 I mentioned it yesterday - but just to restate: My friend's next book is really good!!

We are the Catalyst (The Psionics Book 2) by [McAdam, Tash]
Amazon.ca link:
We are the Catalyst by Tash McAdam
(The Psionics Book Two)
Amazon.com link (to paperback):
We are the Catalyst by Tash McAdam 

You don't have to read the first on in the series to enjoy this one, as it picks up with new characters (though if you DID read the first one, you'll see some familiar faces as the story progresses). 

If you get the digital copy, you get it a couple days early, I believe. It comes out in other formats on February 25th, if you want a book to hold in your hands.

In my humble opinion, We are the Catalyst is even better than the first book - it starts with a very personal act of resistance, and then just snowballs out from there. Tash also writes in a really action-oriented and suspenseful style that makes the book hard to put down.

Anyway, please give it a read if you're so inclined!

Argh, I really wish I could get back into reading proper books - I just can't seem to concentrate on anything that isn't fanfic, however fun they sound. Even my own writing has suffered a demise.

I had the same problem actually... what I discovered was that I only couldn't concentrate because I usually read fanfic on my computer, where I've got other tabs that light-up when something new happens on them, or that I can click to in order to get that sweet sweet dopamine whenever I want. So.... I just started reading books while sitting at my computer, or ON the computer if that was an option. Suddenly it was much easier to "concentrate" because I wasn't across the room and declaring that I was only going to look at a book for the next hour or two.

But, I don't know how you read your fanfic - some people download it onto kindles and devote their attention to it like they would a book... and if that's the case, then you'd probably have to delve further into "what is the difference between fanfiction and other fiction?" and then based on the answer to that, figure out how you can make your experience of other fiction the same as your experience of fanfiction. I can think of a few possibilities off the top of my head - but I'm already late for work, so this comment ends here. :P
