Growing up, I was never a girly girl. I was an only child who had a ton of male cousins and way too many uncles, so what I found fascinating were jeans, tree climbing and make-up avoidance. I was also not really a fan of gay relationships.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t get this post up and running yesterday because I got caught up in work. Hopefully, I will be more organized and prepared by next week. However, I refuse to change the title because it’s still review Monday for me, even though technically, today is Tuesday. (Does that make any sense)? Anyway, on to the review.
So, I was thinking about ways I could turn myself into a blogger. I’m not the girl who keeps journals (although I’m making plans to start soon), so keeping a blog for me is problematic because of the whole continuity thing. But, I figured that if I can write about things I enjoy doing, things I write and anything that pops in my head, I will at least be able to make three posts per week (fingers crossed).
Samantha puts up these challenges every month on the LT3 group page on Goodreads. I love participating because they serve as inspiration for me to write, and I know that anytime I finally decide to write a full story (that is not based on a submission call), I can pick up one of these, and begin writing. Now, usually, I post this first on my livejournal profile, but I figured that it is only fair that those who are not fans of LJ can still read this as well.
Followers of my snippet friday, can make their choice of which snippet they would like to see as a full story, so that whenever I have a breathing space in between writing to make my deadlines, I can start writing that.
To start off Snippet Friday, here’s one which was based on the prompt: Haven’t met you yet. Do enjoy.
The Next Big Thing
Hmmm, so this is the second blog hop I’m participating in. The first, I joined very late, and my post didn’t come up during the hop, but was published like waaay later. This one, hopefully, will be ready on time. I was tagged by Lacie J. Archer in the next big thing which is a worldwide hop that takes readers to various author’s blogs, to read their posts on certain questions that have been asked.
These are my answers to the questions:
I have always had a thing for Young Adult Stories; fantasy and adventure. Growing up, my library was filled with books by Enid Blyton’s Famous Five, Secret Seven, Adventurous Four; The Nancy Drew Series, and the Hardy Boys, just to name a few.
Here comes another author with just the right combination to have my love for young adult adventure mixed with fantasy stories, come roaring to life. If you’re fans of Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and Eragon would really enjoy this modern twist on on the classic epic fantasy genre. The Grimorie saga is a really unique tale with a lot of imagery to it.
I’ve always been the person who is afraid of starting new things. They terrify me to my bones, because the only thought prevalent in my head is usually, ‘What if I fail?’ Add the fact that I tend to procrastinate a lot and can be quite absent minded, and you have something that I fear might lead to disaster.
When I signed up for the Blogger Book Fair, three things came to mind: First was, what on earth would I write. Second was how frequently I would write and the third was if I would even participate fully in the hop.
Fortunately, I have started. Hopefully I would finish. But I can console myself with the knowledge that I have actually began my participation in the fair. During the duration of this fair, you all will get a glimpse of the kind of person I am. For those who don’t read m/m romances, you will get to understand what I love about the genre, and for those who read them, you will learn why I write for the genre.
Hopefully, for the next couple of days, you will meet Alessandra Ebulu. With the added bonus of winning a free copy of either Binding Ties or Saved by a Demon.
