I finished writing book 1 a few years ago, and then gave it to a few beta readers which was a huge wake up. I have the makings of a good story I just need to add in details and descriptions in the story. I need to make the characters more believable and make the story really shine. I’m going to add cell phones, and even include her adoptive parents. Luxor and Crystal Crest History is thrown in as well, and Scarlet is a researcher at heart. Hell, I have a whole collection of metaphysical book and creature books to bring my worlds to life. It’s a lot and in doing all the movie watching, television shows, and life in general I’ve made my world more believable. I’m reading more writing related books too in order to develop my craft more since you never stop learning. I recently finished typing a stack of stories going in Tales From Behind the Counter and I put that aside to focus on the rewrite of Scarlet book 1. I need to get that off the ground and into the hands of readers since book 1 is the foundation for book 2. I will include a prologue or something to catch readers up on the book 1 events. I’m learning the importance of branding so you will see cool covers, and the retail one will be updated too. I hope to make this full time instead of part time. I love interacting with readers, and I hope to have more books out in the future.

Until next time,

#NaNoWriMo is over….

1

Unfortunately, I didn’t make the goal of getting to 50,000 words by the end of the month. It’s okay though since I was more distracted with school coming to an end and the release of my novel. There is a book blitz going on which is awesome since I’ve never had one before. I’m also on my last week of school which is awesome since it means I get 5 or 6 weeks off of school which means Monday, Tuesday, and Thursdays will be free days. It’s going to be exciting since I can film more videos and make my #Booktube channel take off more. I’ve been bad with that and writing since I really need to do well in school. Once it’s over however it gives me a ton of free time to write. I’m on a roll with #AngelWitch and going to write a story with Midnight Starr which will talk about how she goes to a family reunion and then tries to bust Viper he evil ex-fiancee. It’s her then fiancée and it’s how it unravels and leads to her auditioning for Fur and Fang of Love. I really missed playing in my worlds. It kind of sucks when you let everything distract you from something you love doing. I love to write and I can’t imagine a better career for me. I plan on writing and publishing more too especially when I have more time. I plan on making a video about my book as soon as I get a copy so look for that, and there will be more #Booktube videos as I decide what tags to do and organize my books to do them. I’m definitely going to work on my room over break to organize my books to do videos on my favorite ones. It’s time for me to get my butt in gear when it comes to certain things. I hope I can do it, and that’s all for now.

Until next time,

Big News on #TheKillerContractAgency Front!

We have an official release date of Nov 30! Let’s not forget about the cover reveal Nov 4th. It’s been a long journey, but I’m happy to finally have a publisher call my book their home. It’s been a long journey full of edits, revisions on a massive scale, and it’s work I love doing. I have decided that I want to have the rough drafts of all three Scarlet books done by March. I’ll be participating in National Novel Writing month, and I will use that time to knock out the first draft of the third Scarlet book. I hope it does well because this is the first time I have worked with a publisher on a book. It’s so exciting, and I’m definitely going to film a video about it maybe tonight if I can find the time or after work tomorrow. I have Saturday and Sunday off since it’s not only the Celtic Highland Games and Festival, but I turn 25 Sunday. It’s going to be fun going there since I didn’t go last year due to boy drama. I hope it will be fun, and it’s my boyfriends first time going there. I’m happy he is there to spend time with me on my special day.

Until Next time,

Big News About #TheKillerContractAgency

I have told Twitter and Facebook about this, and now I get to blog about it. I signed my first ever publishing contract with Write More Publications for #TheKillerContractAgency. It’s been a wold ride with that book since I pulled it off Amazon in 2011. I redid the whole thing, and I made it first person instead of third. I did fewer victims to make it a better story. I made them aliens instead of humans to give them a super hero vibe instead of a killing people for fun one. It’s been a crazy journey. I gave it to Liz McKeown to edit it so I can republish it, and when she finished editing it she recommended me to Theresa Oliver who is the owner of Write More Publications. She loved the story so much, and praised it to her. I sent her an email after that, and because of how hard I worked on the story it got the notice of a publisher. It means they are taking most of the work off my shoulders, and after doing it for so long I read over the contract which is better then a traditional deal. I jumped at it, and now time for the cover art, formatting, and I’ll let you know when the release date is. This will be my first time working with one, and it’s exciting too. I will also be blogging a few books because of the format, and the style. I write for the story and the characters mainly. I hope to do this full time since I love writing and reading. I never gave up on the story, and that’s they key to this writing business. It’s a good feeling that my hard work paid off. It makes writing worth while, and it will be in paperback which is awesome because it’s my first one.
That is all for now.
Until next time,

#TheKillerContractAgency is finished…and story updates…

IMG_0452
After a few years of writing and rewriting it’s finally done for good. I’ve been finished for a while, and then I’ll have news about when the release date is. I don’t have news yet, but I’ll let you know when I do. As for the stories I’m working on well let me give you an update.
#Scarlet’s Beginning: I’ve finished writing it, and all I need to do is revise, edit, and give it to beta readers.
#Retributionismine: Written it halfway through, and I need to write the other half of it too. I’ve outlined it to death though so it should hopefully be easy to write the rest after I’ve typed up what I have and used the notes.
#Redemptionismine: Needs to be written but I know where I’m going and it’s outlined as well.
#AngelWitch: Halfway through written and I know where I’m going with it since I’ve written the outlines for it. I do this a lot.
VCU starts next month so it’ll be good to get back to it. I missed it since all I do is work and write. I enjoy it but there is only so much you can do before boredom sets in and you are used to the craziness. It’s all a waiting game sometimes since you have to wait for the things you want. Also in other news I’ve been doing good relationship wise since I’ve finally found someone who is way compatible with me more then the last two. No relationships are the same, and they are all different. I think that’s a good thing, and finding someone you can be happy with is the key to a lasting one too. It’s about having someone there through the good and bad times. Not everything is going to go good at all. It’s about being best friends as well as lovers. I hope it works out this time around because I’m happy with him too.

Until I have more updates,

I finally finished The Killer Contract Agency rewrites, and now all I’m waiting for is to have en editor look at it, get the cover, and republish. It’s been a long journey with this book, and with it done I can finally work on other projects. I am typing up the first Scarlet book in the meantime, and I’ve written the second half and I’ll finish it so I can edit them both together and work on the third after the first and second are published. I know I’ve been promising those books for years. Life has gotten in the way more then once, and I find it hard to concentrate on writing with VCU and working part time at the same time. I need to take it more seriously. I want to quit retail part time so I can write full time instead I’ll need to be more on the ball with it. I can’t sit there, and not write and publish the stories I want people to read. Hence why I have enough stories to write full time, and make my dream of it come true. I’m hopeful about it because it’s something I really want to do for the rest of my life. I’ll write a blog post about the story when it comes out, and put the links there too.
Until next time,

Beta Reader Notes/Editor Notes for The Killer Contract Agency:

11150619_10206015286319174_6135665491658495087_n

After you write a novel there comes the editing phase, and several rough drafts to go before it is polished. I have very good feedback from the people I gave The Killer Contract Agency too. It doesn’t need any major rewrites just grammar issues, and expanding parts of the story to make it longer and more filling. I figured I would write a blog post about this phase to let people see what it is like to work on a novel, novella, or short story. Everything needs to be edited before publication since you want the best possible book out there. There is no such thing as getting it perfect because you are not going to catch everything. As I go through it I check to make sure it makes sense, and to fact check the issues that don’t. I had to change the first scene from tar to mud because it made more sense for it. I have to make the hospital scene more realistic as well.  The ending needs to be longer and I have to fix the switching from past to present issue better. I need to make sure the customer stays a certain form in the story, and make sure Salina’s dad is named Steve through the entire story. I also need to put in more of Carter’s back story since he is a part of the story in a big way. You will definitely see Salina and Carter in Retribution is Mine which is the second Scarlet book. I’m halfway through it too. It might take less time for me to edit The Killer Contract Agency and then after I get the cover I’ll have it republished. I’m also working more since school is over, but I hope to have it republished by the end of summer.

Until next time,

 I have had a Youtube channel for a while, but I just didn’t really do anything with it except put up animal videos or the occasional author one. I recently learned about Booktube which is a community on Youtube about reading books. I’ve been watching videos for a while now, and I want to make my channel all about my ebooks, writing, and reviewing fiction and non-fiction ebooks and books. I’ll even throw in a series that’ll let me rant about retail too while I’m at it. My last exam is May 6th. After that besides writing I’ll have time to focus on the things I want to do. It’ll help me get over my fear of putting myself out there, and I’ll be more comfortable in front of a camera. I can film a video about my writing process and the fiction and non fiction books I can read over and over again. I can film videos talking about my ebooks and even reading them out loud so they can get a taste of my work. I can talk about how they are created too. I can make a series making fun of retail, how stupid it can be at times, and the things I hate that customers do. It’s not all bad but I feel like a lot of people can relate to it. I will be blogging more during the summer even doing story updates.  I even have the option to film a typical writing day. There are tons of possibilities with my channel and I can’t wait to begin filming more videos to make this channel as successful as I can. I’m still waiting on a reader, but at this point I might have to go ahead and rewrite The Killer Contract Agency again.  I’ve even made a back story for Carter who is the head of it after he defeats Adam. All I have is four more scenes to write then I’ll have a rough draft done of Being an Empathic Witch in Retail Spells Trouble.

Busy…Busy…Busy

It has been a while since I’ve blogged, and I don’t have any news yet. VCU finally started, and I have been working on top of that. I love my new classes since one of them is fiction writing. I’m enjoying it so far, and I will put up my favorite exercises in this post. I love writing them, and this is what I have so far.

. It wasn’t broken but she was determined to fix it. Her heart that was barely working is now alive again. She thought her ex had broken her heart to the point where it was destroyed, and unable to love. It’s not broken, and she knew how to fix it she had to trust the one she loved with her barely beating heart. Her ex did not destroy it like she thought, and she can fix it by filling with her true love instead of the pain her ex put in his wake. She thought she was destroyed by it, but she wasn’t. Broken is a better word since she lost something she thought she needed. She gained something better, and it may not be perfect but it is a start. Once she lost the guy that made her broken she found the one to fix it again.

I smell the scent of Fuji Apple and Vanilla Orchid, and memories whiz through my head. Memories of the summer, and the scent I began to wear around potential guys I’m interested in. I wished I worn it around you. I wear it to give my skin sparkle and it makes me smell good. It is the smell I wear to make myself feel good, and chasing guys like I used to before he fucked up my life. It reminds me of what I did with all of you talking me out of the deep end saving me from myself. Reminding me I’m young, and I can survive anything. It makes me remember the feel of your skin and your scent mingling with mine. The feel of your lips on me, and your touch. Smells during the summer where I went through the worst emotional pain of my life, but I gained something out of it. Freedom. The freedom to see other guys, and the freedom to find someone else. I’ll never forget the necklace you gave me, and I will wear it around my neck since it reminds me of the pain I went through to get over HIM. I’m healed because of all of you. I can now love because you crashed down my cage, and let my heart out. It feels good to love again. I’m not numb anymore, and I was before the summer. Not now. Reminders keep you moving and help you remember why you went through the pain in the first place. I would not have made it without all three of you.

Cinderella, I captured your prince and if you want him you will have to come to my castle to save him before I turn him into my love slave. I will give you the key to his cage and then you can have him but only if you defeat me. Ha Ha ha…love the evil queen.

That bitch had better wish she was dead, and I will make her pay. No one takes my man and gets away with it. I love him, and I want to spend the rest of my life with him she will pay. I suit up by wearing a black cat suit and head out to save my prince. The way to the castle was filled with vampires, and I staked every last one of them till I got to the castle to see the queen. I open the door and the evil queen sits there with my poor prince in a cage. She smiles evilly at me and all I can think of is die bitch die.

“Come to save your prince? I doubt you will succeed.”

“I will bitch come at me, and I will show you someone who has no issues with taking down a bitch for her true love.”

I rush at her and punch her in the face, and duck as she swings at me. I punch her in the stomach, and she falls down leaving me to grab a sword and chop her head off. She bursts into glitter and the key falls down on the floor. I grab it and go to his cage, and he looks at me with love in his eyes, “Thank you my sweet princess. I knew there was a reason why I loved you.”

I smile at him, “I knew there was a reason why I fell for you.” I kiss him and time stopped. My prince is safe and sound, and I can live happily ever after. The end.

Those stupid asshole pigs are trying to hide from me again, and they will not get away with it this time. I will end their lives, and make bacon out of them no matter what. I will get my revenge, and blow up their house. I’m the big bad wolf after all, and not to be taken lightly. I might just have to blow down their door with a shotgun. I might have to use TNT or a bomb maybe? I don’t know yet all I know is I blew down the house of the other two since they constructed their house using piece of shit materials. Its their own damn faults come on straw and wood easy. Its going to be the brick which is the hardest to blow down. Maybe but I wont go down the chimney that leaves it wide open for them to eat me, and I’m too smart for that. I am and it has happened to my uncle too, and not something I want to do. I go up to the stupid pigs house, and ask them, “Little pigs, little pigs let me in…You make good bacon for my family.”

One of them peer out the window, “Nope you don’t deserve to eat our tender flesh.”

Fuck it. I grab a grenade, and flick the handle then hurl it at their stupid house. Boom! Hey look no more pigs they are all blown up now. Yes! No more assholes tormenting me.

I’m waiting on the readers for The Killer Contract rewrite. I’m also trying to finish the first Scarlet book. It’s been slow since the break up and me working a lot threw my writing schedule off, and it made me depressed too. I’m going to get on a better schedule in the next few days since I still have to write the first three books. Sometimes life does get in the way. Emotional pain is not good for writing either, and I’ve been procrastinating way too long. Back to the craziness of VCU, working, and writing.

Until next time,

Besides the retail novella I am rewriting The Killer Contract Agency short, and it will show a side to them before they hunted supernatural creature’s gone rogue. The bullies are not human instead they are creatures called Malians, and they are a species from another planet that picks on weak humans to make them kill themselves before they become successful adults. The main character is Salina Sinclaire, and she is picked on to the point where she almost dies. Then she joins The Agency, and the rest is history. I looked over the old version, and decided to modify it completely, and not only will it have less human bullies it will be from Salina’s point of view.

I played with it last night when it was in third person, and I got stuck…I turned it to first, and BAM! The story came alive with Salina’s voice, and it was easier too. I also have some fun cut scenes to show you. Part of the editing process involves cutting scenes that slow the story down. And when I changed it from third to first sentences and even paragraphs had to be deleted like this, and this is the scene where her mom is talking to the principal. I had to delete the principal’s part since Salina is eavesdropping after she is covered in tar by the resident bully:

“Hi, my name is Rose Sinclair. Salina’s daughter, and there is a girl named Laurice Pasty. She is picking on my daughter so much I have her crying after school everyday. There will be something done about it right?” She says trying to control her temper.

“Hmm…Yes, I seem to recall having the two of them duke it out, and since Laurice is not a human we are not equipped to get in the middle of this feud. We have to let this run its course, and if it gets too out of hand I do know someone who can get rid of this girl if she does not keep the peace.” He replies with reassurance.

“Why would you allow them in the first place?” She asked why he would be stupid enough to allow a dangerous alien to mingle with humans.

“They had a truce with us, and until a person commits suicide because of them then it will be over. Or they try to kill her, and it means that The Killer Contract Agency will step in, and take care of the threat at that point. Your daughter could be a Hunter if that Laurice girl was trying to hurt her that bad. If the Laurice tries to kill Salina a mentor will step in before that happens. You have my word since they are supposed to be peaceful, and if they are not then the Agency will step in and terminate the threat.” He told her.

“Okay, and then the truce will be over, and the Agency will get rid of them by using my daughter great. Thanks, that is all I need to know.” Her voice drips with sarcasm since she is not too happy about them using her daughter like that.

Yes, it was a fun scene to write. Salina can only know so much from eavesdropping though. I hope to be done with it by early June to give it to the beta. Apply the notes, and then go through it again before giving it to the editor. Still going to publish the retail story, and the proofreader is still working on it. I have the same person for the covers, and the same themes will be used in the story.
That is it for updates…

Until next time,
