So..What's happening?

Hey Lovelies!So what am I up to? Heads up I'll be working two jobs this summer so I'm still going to try to see my friends, write, edit, and read, haha I really know how to keep myself busy! I'll also in September and October be at a couple of events in PA! So with all of this going on what am I doing to keep busy in my small down time?

Well after talking to a couple of my friends I'm editing Project US because I need to stop being a baby and publish the story most who knew me in high school actually read. So I'm having fun going through that. A few of my friends Amy, Taylor, and Ryan are the main pushers for this to come out, they all really like that story, they all read all of it well the first two read all of it, Ryan read parts. Haha poor Ryan at times... I am remembering the fun times I had writing this story and it's fun to go back to the biggest root of my writing :)

My friend Amy is still going through Beneath the Scars and she's moving along with that. Haha still waiting for her comments. So do not think I forgot about this story. I love these characters, they are a little older then what I normally write so it was interesting, plus the genre was a little different. Beneath the Scars leans more on the literary fiction side which is a little different. I'm having fun wriitng different genres. Heads up I might have a couple literary fiction titles coming out...

Never thought I'd be the one writing sweet literary fiction love stories. If you all knew me in high school you would get it. I was very love bashing, not saying it was real, anti-Vday, well that part is still true...I talked about living in the middle of no where to be left alone...yeah I was that person, yay me...

Oh so the other thing I'm working on! Other then End of the Line still being at Amy from Eye for Editing, is my modern Cinderella which is another thing that brought me up to Project US. Similar characters, that type is my roots. Dorky girl and the not so dorky guy, yeah I fall into those traps. I am having fun with my modern Cinderella, I'm still waiting for a name to pop out for me though :/ that will bother me for a bit...You all will love the characters I'm sure :)

Review ~ Night Sky by Jolene B. Perry

Hey lovelies!So I'm a stop on Tribute Book's blog tour for the book Night Sky by Jolene B. Perry! I will be doing a review for one of her other books in a couple of weeks that I'm pretty excited for. Let me start by saying I love this cover, and the book inside is just as lovely!

Book Blurb:
After losing Sarah, the friend he’s loved, to some other guy, Jameson meets Sky. Her Native American roots, fluid movements, and need for brutal honesty become addictive fast. This is good. Jameson needs distraction – his  dad leaves for another woman, his mom’s walking around like a        zombie, and Sarah’s new boyfriend can’t keep his hands off of her.
        As he spends time with Sky and learns about her village, her totems, and her friends with drums - she's way more than distraction. Jameson's falling for her fast.
        But Sky’s need for honesty somehow doesn’t extend to her life story – and Jameson just may need more than his new girl to keep  him distracted from the disaster of his senior year.

My Review
All it takes is one person to walk into your life to make you question everything. Jolene Perry writes this touching story in POV of Jay, a senior in high school who feels like his heart has been stabbed because his friend Sarah who he has been in love with for three years has started dated a shinning star jock Eric. Returning home after this finding he meets Sky, a college girl who is as gorgous as the night sky (or the cover, which I love!). This is a coming of age book for Jay as Sky helps shows him who he can really be through honesty, it is almost as if the fog has been removed for him. Yet as much as Sky is helping Jay he can't, but feel that there is something she isn't telling him...

This was a quick read for me that was very fluid. The characters were both enjoyable and realistic that will have the readers flipping through the pages eagerly to find out what happens next. The author creates a world that the readers can visualize even if they have never stepped foot in Vegas like me. I do not read many male POV's, but Jay was very enjoyable to read and I felt for him as he was in pain from a heart ache, plus a few other things! Sky is a strong, independent woman who speaks her mind causing the dialogue between the two enduring and funny. A must read :)
