That is me reading my copy of Nightlight. A most lovely book which I've recently finished and loved the ending of. Oh my goodness, it's everything Twilight needed and MORE. Yes, it was hilarious, but the story really got me. Case in point: The MC [main character] grew as a character and realized "Hey I don't want a Vampire. I want a regular, geeky, teenage guy." That is realistic. And adorable.

So ladeeda, I'm going to Florida on Wednesday. At which time I won't be posting but I'll be keeping up with my Tweets via my celly cell, cell. And I'll update the moment I come back which'll be the 26th or 27th of April. I honestly can't wait. I have New Moan to finish up too. It drags on like Stephanie's Twilight, definitely, but it has it's scarce moments of hilarity. Here is a pic of New Moan:

And as far as I've gotten, I can't wait to finish it up, granted this one'll end much stupider than Nightlight as it closely follows the nuisances of Twilight, length, Vampireisms and all. Snore-fest but I'm pushing through for the sake a few chuckles.

Okay, I have to go finish up some homework, shower, and sleep. 
Then Sleep and Florida.

Two Comments...and my heart's a-swelling.

So I return home from school to two magnificent comments from fellow writers on And here's my book page:

The Dark World: A Beginning Book Page

I've posted the entire book up so you can view it through the seperate Chapters. And as the comments indicate, I'm quite certain I have to chop the book down, and not "overwrite." (What does that even mean?) So those are my new years revolutions (I know, I'm a bit late. Shush you.) and I'm-a sticking to 'em. I'm quite excited honestly to be going back to my book and to really chop it down to where it's [even more marketable], and more [reader friendly].

As my heart swells with the constructive critcizm I recieved (I'm just so happy that someone read it and LIKED it), I know what I have to do and I'm set about doing it. I'll just wait a bit to see what my fellow teacher (whom I've allowed to critize the book in an objective manner) says about the book -- which I think is the same as what I know to do with it.

On another note, I've acquired the copies of Nightlight and New Moan and I've laughed riotously over the first chapter of one of the books. Amazing. I love Parodies.

I'm signing off. Must go evaluate my book and all that writer-ness.

Books, books, and more books!

[Giggles. And Dances. And Giggles some more.]

The books I ordered came today! Oh great joy! And I shall have my camera in a few days time so I'll update this post with pictures included.

Anyway, this post shall be sort as I have homework to do and whatnot, but I must say I cannnot tear my eyes away from the covers of these books. One is paperback, another is hardcover, BOTH should have me in stitches.

As you see, these books are parodies of Twilight -- the Twilight "Saga" -- whatever you wish to call it. They're hilarious from what I've read of the back covers. One names Bella, Heffa Lump, the other: Belle Goose. I call it genius.

I don't think I'll get a chance to write [and I've gotten the idea to give Dracula his own book; I've started writing it in a book (really odd)] tonight as I have homework to do, but I REALLY want to read 'em. [Sigh. Giggle.]


Oh, and tell me if you like [or dislike] my new page design. The banner was done by me [obviously] and it took all of 5 minutes.

Slow Sunday

How I Feel: Sluggish and Despondent. Oh yeah. Mentally kicking myself to do Yoga when I click "Publish Post."

I know I've neglected this blog as school consumed me as of late BUT I think the 0.01% of you that glimpse this blog shall be glad to know I've kept up my writing (of course) once school projects and papers were out of the way. [Did a Research Paper on Horror Movies and re-fell in love with Dracula (Bela Lugosi interpretation), and immediately vowed that I would do my Vampires honestly, with less superficiality, and more...grit.]
Not to say they weren't that way before, but I realize, when I was writing the first book I was so very young and only had the movies of old, and a few books that I'd picked up as my guide to vampires -- and now, well now, and many won't deny, I don't think, that my vampires are any different from what's been out there (pre-Twilight, of course). It's merely the characters and what they must go through.
If I haven't said it before, I'll say it now, my book is not set in the present, it's rather a period book. Set in the 17th or 18th century, which, I'm not entirely clear on but at the end of the day I don't believe it matters:
The quest for human perfection is as real then as it is now and that's what I think strikes with those who will read this series.
There is no hopeless romance, as the Gods know I can't stand them myself to an extent (here's to looking at you Twilight), but I'm more of an adventure, internal conflict, fall in love along the way kind of person. Not to say I won't fancy a meaningless romance here and there (not looking at you Twilight), but it just has to mean something end of the day and sad to say, not many books out there do mean anything.

Anyway, I'm super excited for the last installment of Harry Potter and I can't wait to see Part I, due out this November 19! Ahhhh. I've glimpsed an early trailer and I'm freaking out within. (I've followed that series since my mother bought it for me years ago -- I STILL read it here and there.)

And [sigh] I've nothing more to say, only that this summer I shall definitely go to task on my [first book] and work everything no matter how much it kills me. I will have a lovely query letter, synopsis, and book proposal all neat and ready to go and by betcha gee golly whiz, I will obtain an agent!

(How's that for determined, eh?)

(None of you will see the me that cries herself to sleep at night, wishing to high heavens that I had the gall to send out a query letter. But what you don't know won't hurt, right? Right?)
