Shhh, don't tell, MB. She didn't ask me to do this but I am. >.> This is what she gets for giving me an ARC to review. =P It's been ages since I've blogged a book review too.
Given I'm a supernatural creature junkee, I enjoyed this story. Vampires, werewolves, demons, and more! But, also, it was an interesting premise. We've had humans raised by the undead, but never had that human have a job running errands for the supernatural creatures. That gave the story a unique twist and allowed the glimpses into the world Ellie lives in we might not otherwise get if she didn't have to walk a couple of hell hounds or take Selkie pelts to the dry cleaner.
The month of March is going to be filled with Angels, but I'm going to take the spotlight away from Michael for a day to show you something I did recently that I'm kind of proud of. I made a book cover for my YA LGBT Paranormal (is there any other kinds of story worth writing?) story, Out of Secrets.
If you know me, then it might not be a surprise. I was an art major for a little while and had plans on being an artist. But I SUUUUUUUCK at Photoshop (or Gimp.) It's not for the lack of trying. I just can't wrap my brain around the damn program.
So when I say I made a book cover, it's a big deal. I mean, look at it. LOOK!
It's been a while since I've had much to say about my writing. The going has been glacial, and my struggle with fatigue hasn't help matters. But all is not lost and I have happy news.
I have been writing!
It feels nice to say that. My word count isn't mind blowing by any means. 5809. But better than zero! I'm proud of myself for managing that though. I have to be. The only other option is wallowing in how little writing I've gotten done and I do that more than I should already. I should be an expert in how negative thinking hinders a person.
Be positive is something I tell everyone else to do and often neglect to do it myself.
I should be posting a Friday Quick Fic today, but I am participating in a Friday the 13th book sale, so you'll have to wait until next week for 100 word flash fiction goodness.
The release of the novel Saving Sam by J.L. Campbell has been timed to coincide with National Heroes’ Day celebrations in Jamaica. Sam, the protagonist finds a hero—or heroine if you like—in his aunt and the mission of this blogfest is to write a maximum of 300 words about someone who has been a source of inspiration. So, Who’s Your Hero?
PS: There's also a giveaway for a $10.00 Amazon gift card for participants.
If you know me then you know my writing hero is Heather Brewer, author of The Chronicles of Vladimir Todd. And no, it's not just because she writes about vampires.
She is an awesome person.
It's the Halloween Edition of the Book Blogger Hop. This week's question is:
What scary book would you like turned into a feature film?
Today's word was one where I had no idea what to write, so I just wrote. The end result was this. Enjoy.
A lone figure appeared on the lake’s edge, seemingly out of thin air. The cloak billowed behind the figure as it glided over the ground. Loxotic shadows reached out from the trees and swallowed the figure as quickly as it had appeared.
If you want to join in on the conversation, check out Billy Burgess' Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer for the official blog hop. There will be new questions every Friday. This week's question is:
What is your favorite genre? List two of your favorite books in that genre.
