New Series Facebook Page

So I now have a Facebook page for my new series Dark Indiscretions.

Here is a picture of the AMAZING cover art done by Su Halfwerk of  REACH FOR THE STARS

 

Click the picture of the cover and it will take you to the Facebook page. It is still a WIP (so don’t freak out if nothing is really on there yet) and later today I will be uploading the Dark Indiscretions Ebook cover.

Cover Art For Current Novel

YAY!!!

My cover is being worked! I can’t wait to see it. It’s like waiting for Christmas morning to come. I’m that excited. Once it is finished I will then be posting the links to where you can purchase my first novel Dark Indiscretions! Seriously, I can’t wait. It’s the same excitement I get when I eat homemade chicken quesadillas. In fact, I think I will make some tomorrow.

13 to go…then a giveaway!

So I have 87 blog followers. I’ve had this blog for a bit over a year and this is exciting to me. I’m not on it as much as I would like. Life gets in the way but 87 people reading my words is amazing. So I thought why not have a giveaway when I reach 100! It’s gonna be sweet. It will be my first giveaway. Nothing too fancy. Just a little token of my appreciation.  Will post contest as soon as that 100 followers pops up so tell your friends to follow so we can get the party started!!

Time For Some Non-Fiction Perhaps

1477824_3583503923746_30566152_n

Letters to Kyle

So I had a new book idea. It will be non fiction. My first one. I got the idea after I had starting writing letters to a guy I was talking to after he left the area. In them are all the things I wanted to say but didn’t have the words to say face to face so I started writing him letters. Letters he will never see. Letters that show him all of me and not just the outside. These letters express my deepest desires and fears. It’s kind of like a diary but instead of talking to myself I’m talking to him. I’m debating if it’s something I would want to share with the world. It’s a true account inside my head and the things I’m constantly daydreaming about because my mind is always playing out some future scenario. I can’t seem to shut it off. I guess that’s one of the side effects of having a creative mind. Maybe idk I just made that up. Anyway it’s only ten letters so far and I’m not sure how many I will write since we barely talk anymore anyway and I really need to work on moving on anyway. I mean is it creepy to write letters to a guy you’re no longer close to anyway? I guess these things can’t be rushed. Feelings and emotions have a mind all their own. No one knows the moment when words no longer have a hold on your heart. I like the concept of an in depth look into how my mind works regardless. I may be the future Psychologist in me. I’m always thinking. I constantly live my life in the fiction, what if, scenarios. It’s high time I plant my feet firmly on the ground and join the living. I can fantasize all day but perhaps taking a leap into the non-fiction side of writing could be fun. I already do it with poetry anyway since that’s as real as my writing can get. My poetry is an extension of me anyway. I’ll leave you with my favorite Starbucks drink.

I Just Want To Runaway

Green Eyes

 

So I thought to myself you can write a book and you can write a poem. Why not a song? Well let me tell you, it’s not as easy as people make it look. I kept wanting to rhyme things like it was a poem and I guess it’s a story but much shorter and it can say many different things depending on what one feels when they read/hear it. It’s played to a beat only I can hear because I’m not a music maker. Just a writer who tried to play her hand at being a song writer. Don’t know if it will ever be a Grammy winner because even though I can sing I’m not all about the spot light of being a performer. I just like to write. Well here it is in all it’s glory saying whatever it needs to say to whoever it needs to say it to. Maybe one day I’ll write another one but for now I’ll stick to novels and poetry.

 

I Just Want To Runaway

Verse 1:

Look into the mirror, don’t like what I see

Why is it that people seem to always count on me

One foot out the doorway, I just want to runaway

From the hurt

From the lies

From the tears I’ve cried inside

From all the pain

If it’s all the same

I’ll never love again

 

Chorus:

I just want to runaway

I don’t want to fight today

This pain inside

I just want to hide away

I just want to runaway

I want all this hurt to wash away

My tears

Time to face my deepest fears

 

Verse 2:

Look into my heart, do you see the scars

Nothing you can do or say would make them go away

Picking up the pieces, wanting to start brand new

From the hurt

From the lies

From the screaming of my soul

Loud and clear

I just want you near

How do I make you hear?

 

Chorus:

I just want to runaway

I don’t want to fight today

This pain inside

I just want to hide away

I just want to runaway

I want all this hurt to wash away

My tears

Time to face my deepest fears

 

Bridge:

But when it’s all said and done

The damage has been done

All the loneliness has stolen my breath away

How to make you stay?

Still you walk away

From me

Never to return

The damage has been done

 

Chorus:

I just want to runaway

I don’t want to fight today

This pain inside

I just want to hide away

I just want to runaway

I want all this hurt to wash away

My tears

Time to face my deepest fears

I just want to runaway

I don’t want to fight today

This pain inside

I just want to hide away

I just want to runaway

I wag all this hurt to wash away

My tears

Time to face my deepest fears
