Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't been on much the past week. I have discovered role playing...but I'm trying to get back track again! haha. I started to edit THE STORM. It's going to be a slow process, since I'm still working on DIM FUTURE, and writing TR3.

The update on TR3: It's in a spot where I'm just plain...stuck. I'm trying to dig myself out of the writer's block hole.

Update on DIM FUTURE: Haven't heard from the three editors I sent it to, but I will update you guys once I hear! And make sure you watch the blog, Twitter, and Facebook with a special announcement soon!!!

I'm also having trouble reading, my goal is to finish one book ever week, and so far, it's worked. I'm just so busy with school, real life, and writing. But I'm trying!

I hope you guys had a great week! And don't forget to check back tomorrow for another piece of THE STORM cover!!

<3 you guys!!

Shadow Future @ Library Part 3!

More pictures for you guys to see!!:

I am so excited!! I can't wait to see what it looks like on the shelf. :)


Cover Reveal: OPAL by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I proud to be apart of the Opal cover moment you have all been waiting for:

No one is like Daemon Black.

When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well... There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different... And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we’re stronger... and they know it.

I haven't been on since Monday, so I thought I'd just make a quick post:

This week has been long and agonizing. My first dance is on Friday, so I'm very impatient.

I started ballet this week, it's going pretty good. Could be better, but I have an awesome teacher. So it makes everything ok. :)

Two Rings #3 is coming along great! It's at 12K+ right now. I'm shooing for either 30K or 40K. Or maybe even more!

I came up with a sadneing fact: I've only read 4 books since school started....*dead silence* school takes up so much time. O.o. But It's HS, so you gotta do good, you know? :P But one thing is for sure: Writing always comes second to school. So it gets in there. :)

DIM FUTURE is on it's 3rd round of editing. I'll be releasing the cover, summary and release date sometime in Oct. So stay tuned!! THE STORM will be edited slowly bc Two Rings series comes first, so it might even be 2014 before it comes out, but you never know!

I'm also now a official team member of Write On! Teens. Check out their site here.

Here's a jam to well...jam to:

Love you guys! When I get more info on SHADOW FUTURE in the library, I'll be sure to let you know!

I hope you guys are having a good week so far!

Hey guys!! I am so excited!! Here is the first official teaser from DIM FUTURE! Which should be out VERY soon! (release date very close in the 'future'! ;))'s the teaser!

(teasers are edited best to my ability.)

“Because.” Jayden said, opening the door.

“I hate when people think that is a reason.”

“Because it is.”

I stuck my tongue out to his back. Whatever.

Hehe...oh the love. ;) Who remembers who Jayden is?? For those of you who haven't read SHADOW FUTURE, this will be a minor spoiler.

Quick Updates...

Just here to say a few updates!

DIM FUTURE is done with it's 2nd round of edits!! I'll start editing again in a month or so, so that I don't get bored with reading it over and over...It's summary is also written! It still needs tweaked, but it'll be out soon!

The subtitle for DIM FUTURE is out too!: Being half Undimmed is never easy...


The first Teaser Tuesday for DIM FUTURE is tomorrow!! It'll be up at 2 NOON, HERE. The blog. ;) There won't be one every Tuesday for a long while, but for now, there's probably once every couple of weeks.

And also, I found this pic, and Pearl says she agrees with it very much:

SHADOW FUTURE has almost reached 30 downloads on Smashwords! It's always FREE there! Link:

Also, Kindle has now made SHADOW FUTURE 0.99! (that's how low it'll go.) So you can check that out as well! Link:

And of course, Two Rings #3 is going along great! It had a shaky beginning, but it's smoothing out now. I made it a dual POV. ;) Any guesses on what two POV's its from?

And check out this:

It's a puzzle! I'll be adding pieces on every Monday, in the side bar. ---> This Monday's post is just below this one!! Don't miss out! There's a giveaway, a new character, and a song from the playlist!!

I'm also obsessed with this playlist: Link: yes, I watch Disney Channel. It helps relax my brain at the end of the day. :P

Wow, that wasn't quick, was it? lol I hope everyone had a great Monday!


PS: Look for a clay Max here soon! Pearl needs a buddy. ;)

"No Gumption" - A Writer NEEDS Gumption

I had to read this memoir by Russel Baker in LAC class today. And the last two paragraphs made me "LOL!"

I thought I would share them with you:

"Buddy," she said, "maybe you could be a writer."

I clasped the idea to my heart. I had never met a writer, had shown to previous urge to write, and hadn't a notion how to become a writer, but I loved stories and though that making up stories must surely be almost as fun as reading them. Best of all, thought, and what really gladdened my heart, was the ease of the writer's life. Writers did not have to trudge through the town peddling from canvas bags, defending themselves against angry dogs, being rejected by surly strangers. Writers did that have to ring doorbells so far as I could make out, what writers did couldn't be classified as work.

I was enchanted. Writers didn't have to have any gumption at all. I did not dare tell anybody for fear of being laughed at in the schoolyard, but secretly I decided that I what I'd like to be when I grew up was a writer. - Russell Barker, "Growing Up"

This was so funny, the fact that it took "no gumption" to be a writer made me laugh. Writers need gumption, or we wouldn't get anywhere. lol. But one of the main reasons I became a writer was because, no, I don't have to run away from dogs, or try to talk to strangers. (in person) I feel comfortable. And yes, I love to make stories, and they're just as much fun was reading them. (possibly even more fun.)

And the boy's sister in this story is younger than him, and has gumption. She likes to get out there and talk to strangers, and say hi to dogs. That sister is just like my little sister. Which made this even more funny.

But one thing is for sure: you need gumption to be a writer.
