Alice laughed…

Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.”

 “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

-Alice in Wonderland.

I love this and if ever I was tempted to get a tattoo it would be a part of this quote.

Happy Birthday Sean Bean!

Today is Sean Bean’s birthday. You may recognize him as a “baddie” from many movies. Although he also played a character called Sharpe in a BBC mini-series – Sean at his finest. He has the most amazing voice.
The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring
Whenever I’m writing an alpha male Brit, it’s his sexy voice I hear in my head. So happy birthday Mr. Sexy Voice! When you read a book, who do you picture for those unforgettable male characters?
Cheers!

NaNoWriMo Marathon April 13th

A big UGH! Not only did I forget yesterday was the writing marathon but by the time I remembered it was very late so I got a big ole’ goose egg for this one!  However – I did go on a walk for Autism to support a dear friend whose daughter has recently been diagnosed. And I went to the theater to see an interpretation of the Rite of Spring by Basil Twist. It was different. Interesting but different – I liked it.

Every November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo for short). The idea is to write 50,000 words in a month. I participated in 2012 and the end result put me well on the way to finishing my first novel which is now on Amazon – Lost in Shadow.

Now NaNoWriMo is hosting an all day writing marathon on Saturday, April 13. Hundreds of thousands of writers all around the world will be writing at the same time. I wonder what putting all that creativity out into the Universe will do?!

My personal goal is 5,000 words in one day!

Happy Productive Day!

I’d like a ghost for a boyfriend…I wouldn’t have to pick his socks up off the floor

Sure, I’d like a ghost for a boyfriend – no picking up dirty clothes or worrying about which way the toilet paper should face. But what does this have to do with anything? Well…back in November I participated in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and found myself with half a novel. Now after lots and lots of hard work, I’m almost there.

My revisions have gone back to my editor for one last look and then once I make those changes I’m ready for formatting and uploading. My cover is complete and I wanted to share it. I think it came out beautifully – the cover designer did a fantastic job.

I’m hoping to have it available on Amazon in April. Then on all other eReader sites. I’ll also be adding a paperback version and an audiobook version. So while the editor is doing her thing I’ll be working on book 2. Once the first book is live I’ll follow-up and let ya’ll know. For a modern-day ghost story read on…

lost

We were wrong…ghosts are frighteningly real. For centuries a war has been raging between light and shadow…Shadow Walker pitted against Day Walker, threatening to plunge the world into darkness. Colin, an ancient warrior who lost hope long ago, prowls the streets of Edinburgh, eviscerating those who prey on humanity.

Emily possesses the ability to see beyond our realm into the dangerous realms of Light and Shadow. Unwittingly drawn into the shadows when she intervenes to help Colin, igniting his long-buried desires, she unleashes a deadly curse. Now with a week to break the curse, time is running out as they are locked in a deadly fight with forces that will stop at nothing to destroy them before they succeed.

Intensely romantic and thrilling, Lost in Shadow portrays the struggle between redemption and retribution.

Fans of Sherrilyn Kenyon, J.R. Ward, Karen Marie Moning, Charlene Harris, and Jacquelyn Frank will devour this series.

 

Cheers!
