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,

It has been a while since I have updated my blog, and there is not any major news yet. I’m still working on various projects, and the first Scarlet book is actually in the middle of the first draft. The second book I’m 8 chapters in for that draft, and I’m working on the second retail novel. It’s been a long summer due to working and writing. Things are pretty much normal now since I’ve been slowly getting my life back together, and I start school this month which means things will be the busy chaos I love. I miss school since it kept me busy throw in work and writing and I always had something to do. I have been reading more ebooks and books, and working on writing exercises. It is hard to come up with 1,000 words based on images. I can do it though, and I have learned more lessons this summer then I have any other since I’ve gained more then I’ve lost. It was a wild ride too, and I have talked to more people then ever. I love hearing their stories, and their pasts. Everyone has one, and it makes them who they are. People are interesting to me, and I enjoy life now that I’m not miserable. I will update this more as I go along because once my writing picks up more, and I am able to publish more books I will definitely have more to talk about. Right now its all about taking notes, and writing while waiting for VCU to start.
Until next time,

It has been a long road, and this particular project is finally done. I loved how it turned out, and I could not be happier since I have a new cover artist I look forward to working with! I have my school stuff straight, and things are picking up! I did write a post about my inspiration and why I wrote the story in the first place, since there is a story behind it:
Not many people know this, but the idea for the story did not come out of thin air. It came thanks to me coming across a book called Retail Hell: How I sold my soul to the store which is about a screen writer forced to get a job working at The Big Fancy, and I read the whole thing within a matter of days. It was funny, and I loved every minute of it. I loved his take on the different types of customers. I loved the fact that he ends up being the only male selling handbags. The humor in it is laugh out loud funny, and I love his comments regarding the customers he nailed it. I admit I have been working retail for two years I wont say where, but I have seen some of the stuff he talks about in his memoir.
My story is set in a supernatural store called Fiona’s Corner and Café. A retail store in the Luxor realm, and Scarlet who is a vampire has to go under cover to solve the case of the missing werewolf girls from the Moon Wolf pack. It has her put in situations people rarely get to see unless they are on the other side of the counter. I love how it turned out. I even threw in something extra for my readers since it mentions another ebook I’m working on. I will make book 1: Scarlets Beginning. Book 2: Retribution is Mine and Book 3: Redemption is mine.
Here are the links to purchase it:
That is all for updates I will let you know if I have another release, or my thoughts on things.
Until next time,

I forgot how freeing it is just to work, and write on my days off. I love summer since it means a break from the stress of school. It is usually filled with friends too since I have time to have a life. I always have to remember who my real friends are, and they are the ones who support you when the time is rough. They don’t stop being your friend even when you act like an emotional wreck. They make time out of their days to see you, and don’t hold you back. They like who you are and don’t want you to change. You never really know who is on your side until you go through a break-up, death, or a situation that destroys you so completely that you need to rely on them in order to build yourself up. You find out the people who are just pretending to be your friends to which hurts even more since they were supposed to be your friends. I know I lost certain people, but if they were my friends, they would have looked at it like she is hurting emotionally, and to not kick her when she is down. They were holding me back anyway, and I’m better off without them. I know I’m going places, and this situation proves I can handle anything. I’m writing more, and hopefully I can get everything published by the end of the summer. All this free time is awesome! I am grateful for the people who understand what I’m going through, and the ones who don’t attack me because of it. You never really know who your true friends are till your tested. True friends don’t mention the thing you’re trying to forget when it is their fault anyway. Friends don’t insult your family, and they certainly don’t imply you call them names for no reason. I love this freedom from them, and I would not have it any other way. True friends don’t hold you back or change you.
Until next time,

I have many writer friends, and my author friend Lisa M. Lilly this is her blog. She tagged me in a blog hop. I thought okay that will be fun since I have time during the summer to focus on the things I love. She has helped me with one of the stories I hope to publish this summer. As soon as I get the rest of the edits and the cover I will hit publish, and people will know what working at a supernatural store is like.
1 – What am I working on –
I am working on rewriting The Killer Contract Agency story that is about a girl named Salina Sinclair who got bullied so much she can get her revenge. Especially since the evil bully Laurice almost killed her, and is an alien called a Malian. They are a race that loves to pick on the weak in an attempt to make them kill themselves or the aliens do it instead in order to prevent the person from making their marks on the world. Some are peaceful, and see no reason to but others you have to watch out. Then I am working on the first three Scarlet Summers novels. The last thing is the second retail novel which starts out with Evangeline who is the main character working at Kyle’s General Store. This is about angels and witches this time instead of vampires and werewolves.
2 – How does my work differ from others its genre?
For one thing vampires and werewolves can have children with each other. Witches and Angels can have kids, and some witches living in the Luxor realm do have to go to Witch School. Vampires are crossed over the same way, but they go through a ceremony to become worthy of being one. Witches and AngelWitches (Cross between a witch and angel. Mom was a witch and Dad was an angel) are brought into their powers through a ritual. Skylons and Waterlons creatures that are introduced in the fourth Scarlet book are brought into their powers by vampires and werewolves. There are two realms and one is the Crystal Crest a realm for humans, and Luxor is for supernatural creatures. There are even realms inside them like the Angel realm and the Merpeople one.
3 – Why do I write what I do?
I love supernatural creatures: vampires, shape shifters, angels, witches, and the various types. Normal life is also boring, and I love making up worlds. I love writing supernatural creatures since I find them sexy, and magic does exist in that world. I love creating stories and seeing my characters come to life. I love the feeling of writing and rewriting until it is as good as the ones on a bookshelf. I want to change the world, and help people escape from their lives.
4 – How does my writing process work?
I do have to have caffeine before I do any kind of work. I have to wake up first. Then I put on the television to use as background noise since I cannot work in silence. I pull up a word document of the story I am working on, and get rolling. Sometimes I write first in a notebook then type it out. I outline first and make notes then I write. Sometimes I get 1 page done, and sometimes up to 17. I work part time, so it depends on whether I have a day off. If I have a whole day I will be able to get done more than I can if I did not. Sometimes I sit on the bed, sit at my desk, sometimes I use my laptop or Ipad. I can even use my smartphone to type notes on the go.
For my post I tagged one writer Nicole Pyles who writes The World of my Imagination blog. Check her out at the hyper link.
Until next time.

I just ended a four and a half year relationship, and it did not feel good at all. It was for the best since I had to do it for my sanity. He did not get me at all, and nothing against him but we were not compatible. On the other hand I have time to focus on school, writing, reading, and working. I have time for friends and family. I can concentrate on VCU. I don’t plan on getting back into a relationship for now since this is the second time I can experience freedom. I can enjoy life, and have fun at VCU. I can flirt with guys, and go back to my old self. I changed so much, and it was not enough. I will never change for a person again. I hated the drama too, and it caused me too much stress especially during the school year when I had a test. It got to be too much when I was fighting with him every month, and I did not want to be miserable for the rest of my life to keep someone happy. Sometimes people are just not compatible, and thank god I have friends and family helping me. I did not want to lean on people because I did not want to seem weak. I did though, and I started seeing friends and family more to help ease the pain. It worked, and working on my stories helps too. I want to turn the pain into something creative. Moving on from something fun is hard, but it is better then being miserable. I missed freedom to do whatever I wanted. I missed not having limits, and I will enjoy my freedom before getting someone. I don’t need a boyfriend in order to be happy I need me. I will find someone better, and each relationship prepares you for the next. As dark as the road can be there is always a light at the end of the journey through life.
Until next time,

I’m not talking about the people who explain their opinion to you with facts. I am talking about the people who name call, go to low blows, and one woman even went as far as saying: “"I'd LOVE to see these jerks end up on a slab...You'd be justified in saying, "He scared me. He was armed." Old fat white men get away with killing unarmed black men, why couldn't someone get away with capping him?" Said by someone who had an opinion, and just because she disagrees with something felt the need to attack him on the Net. I almost forgot how childish it is to argue with people on a Facebook page, and not only that but employers look at that. I don’t want to be known for attacking people who have a different opinion then I do. I took down my posts despite me trying to be nice. I am going to be a successful author one day. It involves me making books, and people are going to like it or hate it. I am not going to argue with a reviewer when they have an opinion over my book. I am done fighting with the general public on a profile page, and this is one thing I will learn from it: Let it go. They have the right to their opinion. I have a right to mine if they want to show the world they are always right let them. It does not change the fact that I will continue to do what I am doing, and in all honesty, if they are not a friend or my family they won’t matter to me. They don’t pay my paycheck, and I won’t waste my time arguing over something stupid when I have better things to do with my time.
Until next time,
