    Melodramatic Reading Goal Talk :D

    For some insane reason, I gave myself 9 books to read in January. >.< In my defense, most of the books are shorter or easier to read. And also in my defense, I actually originally wrote down 8 books, and that’s the goal I have posted by my desk, so really, I don’t have to read 9 books to meet my goal. In any case, it’s halfway through the month (or so), and I have read two books!! Now, I’m not panicking. First of all, if I don’t get all the books read, it’s not a big deal. Second of all, I can still totally read most of them! Like…

    AudioBook Chat

    For years, I thought audiobooks were for businessmen and jet-setters – the people traveling all over the world for whatever reason. Too busy to relax or simply unable to sit down and read because they need to be in the car for seven hours. Then I won an audiobook. This was around four years ago. In full disclosure, I didn’t listen to this book until earlier this year, I think February. It’s not that I didn’t try. I bought the ebook the day it came out, so excited because it’s a companion novel to one of my favorite books. In any case, I had a hard time getting into this…

    Personality Disorder

    Firstly, there’s a fun WHISPER Interview up on Sunflower’s Blog. Go read it. ^_^ So, I’m an INTJ according to 16personalities.com – This makes me an architect, “imaginative and strategic.” ^_^ When I first heard of the test, via my brother, out of a book, I think, I don’t remember exactly what I got. I think it was INTP (which doesn’t fit as well as INTJ, unfortunately and honestly – because INTJs are a mess) – but all I know for sure was that I was offended. I didn’t like being called an “introvert” back then, you see. I didn’t realize how awesome we are until someone sent me a list…

    Release Day Party: Whisper!

    To celebrate the release of my third book baby 😀 I decided to make a list of some things I made notes for that never made it into the book. 😀 One: Wallace Enterprises I had planned a rivalry between Wallace Enterprises and Xacharias Corp from the start. It was always a side plot, but it was one that stressed Jade’s father out a whole lot and was the source of some of his snippiness. When I actually got into the story, though, he was snippy for an entirely different reason, and Wallace Enterprises only gets a tiny, tiny mention in a scene where Jade is describing something she saw…

    Brainstorming Diaries

    GUYS! Have I mentioned lately how much I love brainstorming? I freaking LOVE brainstorming! While WHISPER is with the next editor, I thought I’d be nice to myself and relax. Of course, relaxing doesn’t mean I won’t poke at my next story. I have to poke at it! It’s so shiny. ^_^ And I’m learning and discovering so much. It never ceases to amaze me how the floodgate just opens up. Plus, I got to Google some interesting things that would make me look like a psychopath to anyone looking over my shoulder. #excited 😀 All these discoveries are great for a couple of reasons: One, I need them to tell the story,…
