Hello everyone! Ready for another fact? Okay here it goes. The idea for my entire series came from the picture to the side. I don't know how I got inspiration from this picture to think of an entire series but like most writers know, inspiration comes to you in some of the strangest ways. The funnier thing about this photo and my WIP is that it now has nothing to do with the series. When I first planned this series, this castle was the basis of it. Now it doesn't even exist in the story!
Did anything like that ever happen to y'all? I would love to hear the stories! Thanks for reading!
Hello! Thanks for tuning in! Today's Tuesday but instead of doing the Top Ten Tuesday about what I would like for Christmas (I never really want anything), I decided to tell you what I want to read in this game that I want to do in 2017. The book game is called Diversity Bingo and it was created by a ton of people. I'll leave their links below. In this game, they have different categories on thirty different boxes like on a board of bingo. I know that I won't be able to complete all of these categories so this is the top ten categories I plan on doing in 2017 and the books that I want to read for them. Let's get started!
1.) Contemporary World Arranged Marriage: Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed

Hello everyone! Before I begin, can I say that this picture to the side is how Fall should be. It shouldn't have temperatures in the 90's. But that's Illinois weather. Anyway, it's already time for a new set of quarterly goals. I have to say I'm pretty happy that I completed 6.5 out of 17. For most of the goals that I didn't complete, it was because I either couldn't complete them or because I had no desire to do them.
For my writing goals, I completed 1 out of 3, which isn't that great but I'm king of happy with it. I wrote 25,543 words in my manuscript. I was almost there but I was in such a writing slump with this story. Even though it is complete crap, I'm proud of that crap. This was the first time that I have written this many words in a first draft of any manuscript. I usually write the first draft in a notebook or something. I thought I'd try something different this time since I don't usually type the full draft onto the compu…
Hello everyone! Today I have the honor of interviewing author N.J. Paige, author of several books, including Code Human.
The soul of humanity can not be ignored when truths become lies, lies turns to hate and hate to an uprising and death. Fenesia Thornbark lives a privileged life because she belongs to a group of people called Purestkind, considered by an autocratic society to be the purest and highest form of humanity. However, her life is shattered with one fetal mistake, but allows her to see her world for what it really is: When the Purest, an autocratic government, embarks on subjecting groups of people to unspeakable horrors because they see them as lesser people, the unexpected happens: some of their own kind turns against them. Fenesia and the rest of her family are marked as traitors. The Purest kills her parents. Destroy her home. Bound her in chains. But...in spite of it all, they fail to break her. And now she'll make them beg for death.
