The Writer’s Blog Hop!
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.
