Writerly Ramblings

As usual, there is homework to be done.  And, as usual, I am not doing any of it. Instead, I decided to write another post, because why the hell not?

I'm about halfway through Hush, Hush.  Somehow, it feels like nothing has happened and yet I'm still hooked on reading it. All I want is a steamy make-out scene, but the author keeps cutting them short.  Please, just give me my cotton-candy fluff? Pleeeeease?

In other news, Chanelle Gray is hosting an awesome giveaway over on her blog!  It's to celebrate the upcoming release of her YA debut, My Heart Be Damned.

(Look at that pretty cover!)

The story is about a girl named Amerie who, after her mother dies, is forced to be all badass and hunt evil souls called The Damned.  There is also a steamy romance.  And, judging by the cover, there might be a graveyard or two.  I have a not-so-small obsession with graveyards.  I am ridiculously excited to read this. So make sure to check it out on Goodreads, and don't forget to snag a copy when it comes out this Saturday!

Since this is also a bit of a writing blog, perhaps I should talk about writing? Errr...well...I recently had a huge revelation about my WIP that changed my entire story. I now need to figure out where the evil-villian-of-evil is going to fit in and also decide whether or not to get rid of the love interest. This was basically what my entire evening consisted of yesterday:

Needless to say, writing is going slowly.

How is everyone else out on the blogosphere?


  1. I read My Heart Be Damned. Good story.

  2. Sounds like I need to check out My Heart be Damned, and I do like its cover as well.

    Haha! I love your little animated clip. I can relate. Even though it is a pain changing it up, at least you know your making progress. I hope that goes well.

    I enjoy your posts. I've added you to my blogs over at

    1. Yeah, I'm gonna got to the bookstore next weekend and grab a copy of it.

      And thanks for the follow!
