Sorry about being MIA...

Hello everyone! Sorry for not posting a new comment in a long time. Life's been kind of crazy so this blog and my writing has been on the back burner. But I have some new announcements:

-Epicenter Of Stupidity

A place where I snark about books that have long winded descriptions, Mary Sue and Gary Sue main characters, angst, and oh yeah crazy authors. It's in the development and I hope I can post the first snark shortly.

-Author Interview with Lindsey Sablowski

Who is she? You may ask? Well, she is an YA fantasy author of the series Cursed With Power. Originally an Inkie (a name given to anyone that was on the website called Inkpop), now she has posted some of it on Wattpad.

Here's the pitch for Cursed With Power

In the darkness they are flames. In daylight they are shadows. Celestria Hale is thrown into a world of betrayal and loss when she discovers there are only five Dark magicians alive. 

She is one of them, but after her sister's death and lover's departure her heart is blackened with grief. Questions arise throughout each town as Light magicians plot revenge. Survival becomes essential. Celestria leaves her hometown in search for answers, but danger lurks close behind her. When she meets Alaire, who reveals himself as another Dark magician, everything seems to fall into place again. 

However, he too has peculiar dreams and a dangerous past he chooses to hide. A good magician, an enemy of the Dark, plots to punish Alaire and Celestria for their sinful magic. If he isn't killed, he will destroy them. Yet if he dies, they also risk losing the information he has on their remaining allies. As a war approaches to determine the fate of magicians, Celestria fears for her and Alaire's existence. Destiny may find them, but will it be enough?

She has kindly agreed to an author interview. Right now, Lindsey is sending Cursed With Power to publishers. And if she is unable to get a contract, then Cursed With Power will be self published Further updates regarding author interview and of Cursed With Power will be posted.

-Author Interview With Caitlin Elyse 

She is the author of the Immortal War series. The first book is Heaven Bound Hell Hunted. It is a YA paranormal romance novel.

Here's the pitch:

When Katherine Ambrose became a Slayer, she had one goal in mind-kill the murderers that destoryed her family.

After a brief mission into the human world, Kitty finds herself caught between Kenric, her long-time protector; Darien, her lovesick best friend; and Storm, the silver-blooded immortal with an ego to match her own.

She never thought she'd attract the attention of Hell's cruel masters.

When Itzal, the demonic warlord of Hell, declares war on Heaven, Kitty must fight her desires and her thirst for revenge if she wishes to remain free. Not even Heaven's holy strength can deter Itzal from his target.

And his target is Kitty.

Heaven has bound her to their  moral will.

Hell is hunting her for their own dark desires.

And three men are vying for her affection.

It is available for purchase on in a paperback but also as a Kindle book.

Check out her website at:

(It is a great website, love it to pieces. It looks very nice.)

Caitlin Elyse has agreed for me to interview her as soon as she finishes writing Heaven Prays, Hell Preys, the sequal for Heaven Bound, Hell Hunted.

-Author Interview with Wendy Higgins

I have the pleasure of interviewing Wendy Higgins. In case anyone doesn't know, she is the second person to be published by a website called Inkpop which was created by HarperCollins. Her debut novel is Sweet Evil. Initially, it was to be a standalone novel but was decided to be expanded into a trilogy. It is a paranormal romance involving children of fallen angels.

Here's the pitch:

What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences? This is life for sons and daughters of fallen angels in SWEET EVIL.

Anna, a tender-hearted Southern girl, was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She’s aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but it isn’t until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage, and her will-power is put to the test. He’s the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.

A cross-country trip forces Anna and Kai to face the reality that hope and love are not options for their kind. When it’s time for Anna to confront her demons, will she choose to embrace her halo or her horns?

The release date is May 1, 2012.

As of this moment, I am planning on getting Sweet Evil. Once I am done reading it, I will start jotting down the interview questions, moving the interview process forward.

All I can say is wow. I have lots to do in only a short period of time. But it is nothing I can handle.

  1. You HAVE been busy! I'll be sure to check out your interview with Wendy. I'm looking forward to reading Sweet Evil.

    1. I don't know how I will be able to pull it off. I interviewed Amy Machelle who wrote Saving Elizabeth.

      I can't wait to read Sweet Evil as well. It is coming out around the time of my birthday. (May 5th to be exact)
