Title complications

Hey Lovelies,
It is no secret that I have trouble with titles. I'm working on a second New Adult novel. Beneath the Scars is currently with Jenn, she's worked on Family Ties both edition and is owner of Modern Electra Editing. So while she is editing Beneath the Scars I'm looking for cover ideas and writing other stories. I'm going to enjoy my time before classes start up once again. I don't know how much time I'll have for writing, I'm hoping some because I don't want to work myself into bad stress point like last time. I'm going to try to find the balance in grad school, that and I'll be working two jobs, yay. I do have an idea for the cover though :)

So the title problem I'm having is with my New Adult story The Four Purposes of Oil. I like the title, it is different, but I worry it might be too long. It is a bit of a mouthful. So do you guys like The Four Purposes of Oil or would you like Service and Repair better? Or is Service and Repair too corny? Figures I have a cover idea for this and I'm only a little over 13K into it...

Grad School

Hey Lovelies!
I know when I graduated in May with my BA in History Secondary Education from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) that I wouldn't go back to school. However I'm having a little trouble finding a teaching job in this economy so I decided to try what I had been toying with since high school, get my certificate so that I could teach Special Education. So applied to Georgian Court University by me, and I got in. So I'll get my certificate of TSD (Teacher of Students with Disabilities), but if I take 5 more class on top of the 7 then I get my masters on top of my teaching certificate. As much as I want to write for the rest of my life I also like teaching. I like being able to help students and to teach them, yes there are moments where I get frustrated, but it's a job you get what you put in. There will always be that one day, but what about the other days? I can't wait to get my own classroom, but till then I'll be subbing and earning my TSD :)

By the way on a side note Beneath the Scars was printed out on computer paper and I gave it to my Grammy to edit. I got too antsy waiting for a friend who has had it over a year and a half and I have been having trouble getting a hold of her as well. Bad combo. So my Grammy is going to give me comments and edit, I like to have someone else read it before giving my story to an editor go through it. More eyes the better! Thought I'm almost done writing the short story for Christmas Lites III which raises money for the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, that and I have been already trying to picture Beneath the Scars' cover. You know getting ahead of myself...Welcome to both sides of my world, education and writing...

Review ~ Take me Now by Faith Sullivan

Hey Lovelies!
I have another book review for the author Faith Sullivan. I did a review for her New Adult Heartbeat which I also enjoyed.

The little boy you knew your whole life. The guy who made you swoon in high school. The man that you never saw coming. Three men that were in Ivy's life all at once, the same summer that she is working an internship for the boss from hell. Ivy is a college student doing an internship for her last year of school when her old crush comes back to town. Her close friend worries about her with the crush, knowing that the crush was just that, crushing. When an empty gas tank turns her already spinning world into super drive. Take me Now is a romance story that even after the bumps in the road you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, praying that love really is strong enough to survive anything.

Faith Sullivan has Take me Now in two different POV's between Ivy who the readers will be able to relate to. Ivy is just trying to get the necessary work done to accomplish a goal of her. She feels insecure, and is trying to figure out who she is suppose to be trusting, yet prove she can stand on her own two feet. Eric has shadows in his past that he needs to balance of remembering the loved ones, but also to live his life. Faith's language flows, so that the readers want to continue reading without putting down the book. This is the second book by Faith Sullivan that I have read, and the works keep getting better. Hope to read more in the future :)
