Sorry for it being awhile, I haven't had classes because of snow so I really don't have an excuse! Of course Jersey is suppose to have a Northeastern Wednesday, I do not do cold, I'm ready to move down south because this is getting ridclous!
So Family Ties is still under going being edited by Jenn, I curious to what she is doing. I truly have an awful sense of curiousity, use to drive Ryan crazy with how many questions I would ask. I'm trying to behave and not use AIM (she gave me her aim username) to contact her last night to ask her how she is doing with Family Ties. I do not know how much longer I'll be able to restrain myself. Stories are author's children, it's true as crazy as it might sound....
I'm kind itching already to get another story on the way to getting out there. I'm considering getting one of my series out to help draw people in. I might be wrong, but it seems like people want to read series, or that trilogies seemed to be in right now. I have a trilogy on works, 2 out of the 3 are written (Project US, Retrial of Poject US, and Project Not Again). I am trying to finish writing the third one, the second one needs to be run through again for my editing weridness to see if there is anything missing. The Project US, a big baby of mine, my longest story and just a piece that I have been working on, well started six years ago when I was a freshman in high school. Oh god that was six years ago!
It is pretty much the only real story that all of my friends have read, it was the piece that got me to really want to write. However I'm also considering the third book I try to get published is A Pirate's Life for Me. The sequal though I might have written myself into a corner, was not happy when I realized that. So yay series and wanting to get more stories out there...

I'm not sure if the fever is finally gone and I'm loopy or lack of sleep. However the good news is I got the first edition of Family Ties edited!! Of course the good mood could be from the good news, most likely!! Also was asked if I had any suggestions for the cover!! I have more ideas for other stories, but none the less excited!! I'm excited to look through Family Ties and see what more the editor has to say!!
Also I had a second Author Interview click here to read it. Or click the interview tab at top!! I'll be sure to keep everyone in the loop!!

So I'm not sure if I'm trying to procasenate on school work or if this blog is missing something. Any suggestions that I could be doing on here. Whether it be first chapters of published work, fun facts 'page', etc...feel free to suggest or tell me I'm just avoiding homework!

So I'm still sick, go figure I'm never sick, and I get sick for the first time in years this week. Winter is bad enough without having the chills. I was at the food store and I forgot the sugar and cinninom for toast, that sounds about right. Good news is I figured out a story two ideas for Elizabeth's charity collection. I gave a small summery to Ryan and waiting for him to tell me what he thinks! :)

So I was so sick yesterday I could barely get out of bed. I'm doing a little better today which is also the first day of classes. I would be so lucky to be sick when classes start up. So I'll see if I can find a job this semester, we'll see how that goes. Though I'm suppose to be really focusing on school this semester so odds of a job are slim which drives me crazy not going to lie! Thoug I'm also to see if I have time to write, I really want to get Pirates 2 (Heart out at Sea) finished this year, and work on Project US 3 (Project Not Again). I will also work on a short story that MIGHT go into a collection of paranormal fiction that a fellow author is trying to put together for the charity that fights illiteracy. When I finish writing the short story my friend Ryan says he doesn't mind reading it. Poor guy I keep turning to him to read my stuff!! I do not know what I'm going to write yet. We'll see how that goes!! I'm excited though!

I'll keep updating on the process, right now it is in editing and the book cover design process will begin. needless to say despite the fact that my stomach is in knots from else is going on (stupid little things that always happen all at once) I'm still a little bouncy, hyper, excited about it!! Well I hope you take a look!! Also I've been told that the cover is underworks!

It looks like the blog is growing with each new follower!! I seriously adore the people I'm meeting through blogging, Book Blogs, and GoodReads. I could spend countless minutes thanking all of them! Heather has a pretty blog, it isn't just because I have a soft spot for the sky! She is doing a spotlight on an author each month, and January is me! She is truly another sweetie!

Okay so I think things are slowing down a little bit from break and unforunatly I go back to school soon. I really am just ready to graduate I'm done, and I really plan on going for masters?? I must really be losing my mind! Anywho... so the lucky winner of the Indie Holiday Giveaway Patty from NY! I don't really feel well today so I'll be mailing her, her copy tomorrow of End of the Line! Pretty exciting to have people read this book, it is one of my favorite that I wrote, written? I'm hoping others will be enjoying it also.
So news about Family Ties!! It is now going to be coming out in April not May! Not going to lie after seeing that news after checking my email for around 2 hours I nearly jumped, despite the fact that I was sitting on my floor. The waiting does not bring out the best in my curiousity which might be another reason my friends think Alice from Alice in Wonderland reminds them of me. I'm hoping to post soon the description of Family Ties on the Book Page soon! I'm eager to say the least. Also on BCP's site I have an author page, you should check out! I feel like I'm forgetting something else...I was celebrating my friend, Mo's, birthday last night till late this morning watching movies with a group of friends then I was unable to sleep afterwards. Got to hate an overactive mind at times...
Oh also I have worked out a better direction for Heart out at Sea, the sequal to A Pirate's Life for Me. I was heistant when I started writing it, but I am getting excited as I found the direction of where the characters want to go. It's looking to be interesting!!
