Monday Blog Post

Hey everyone!! Happy Monday!

Well...I don't have Spring Break, that's next week. So I'm kind of bummed about that. BUT, in TWO WEEKS. YES. TWO. THE STORM releases. Can you believe it??? I can't!!! I gave THE STORM off to a friend who's going over it one more time. I want to be as good as it can!

In other news....I am now hooked on Lizzie Bennett Diaries. I thought it was a TV show for the longest time, but when I saw all the gifs of Lizzie and Darcy kissing, I finally looked it up, and I discovered that it wasn't on TV, it was on YouTube. So now I've been watching it. I'm on episode 14 I believe now. I even saved a bookmark onto my iPod home screen.

I'm obsessed.

Anyhoo...guess what I just did? I finished WIP!! You know, that book that's kind of like Rise of the Guardians and Young Justice rolled into one. It's DONE. I had thought of better ending to end it. The other one would have kept it going for a long time. And I think this ending would be a whole lot better.

The book is 79k. I wanted 80k...but...I was only a couple 100 words under. If I ever edit it, I'll be sure to add more.

Now, I can either write a new WIP, or give into the urge to write more Millicent and Felix. The pull almost made me stop writing WIP. I think I'm better off writing THE STORM #2.

Which leads me into THIS part of this blog post....THE STORM has gotten really good reviews so far. AND, they all say the same thing: "Felix!" I'm very proud to say that I've written a good YA Boyfriend. ;) Which...I think you all deserve a teaser...with Felix in it...

"He pressed his forehead to mine. “I told you I wouldn’t let you fall.” He said, his breath tickled my lips, and I smiled broader.

Then he kissed me."

Just a little something for all you awesome people. Don't forget about the giveaway! 40 adds on THE STORM goodreads page, and I'll giveaway stuff!! :D

I hope you all have a great week!!

  1. Congrats on finishing the WIP! I love the feeling of having finished something!

    Really liked the teaser - though perhaps look over your punctuation again. For example, it should be: "I told you I wouldn't let you fall," he said ... (There should be a comma before the dialogue tag not a period.) A tiny thing - just wasn't sure if you were aware of it or not. (:


I love reading what you guys have to say! But make sure it's clean. I will try and reply. Thanks for taking time to comment/read my blog!
