Interview with Nostrovia! Poetry!
You can read the interview on their website here, but for those of you not too keen on clicking links, here’s the interview in its entirety below: Tell us a little bit about your writing career. I’ve self-published two stories, entitled, The Dark World, and The Immortal’s Guide respectively. They are a part of a series, that is to have two more books to complete the series in the coming years. I’ve also had a short story published in my college’s newspaper, The Vignette, and have had a poem published upon winning a contest whilst in middle school. And of…
Love and other Drugs
It’s been a long time since I’ve had a semi-personal post on my blog, and it’s filled my thoughts, so here it is. The love of our craft (whatever that may be), the love of…living, whatever it is that drives us, this has been on my mind a lot lately. I’ve recently gotten out of a funky state (what I call a state of depression or just a glum-ridden mood), and now I’m more or less of a ‘I love life,’ mindset once more. I flip flop on these things time and time again. I’ve just accepted that it’s going…
NEW 4 STAR REVIEW FOR THE DARK WORLD!
From one of my favorite people, Miss Kristina Davis (of Goodreads) comes a review for The Dark World, I have been waiting for with bated breath since she received her Giveaway copy in November of 2012. And it’s here! Let me just say that while I gush about her now, I hardly knew her back in November and it is over the course of the months that she took her time reading the book that I got to know her a bit more. She’s very interested in books as am I and her passions for books and stories knows no bounds.…
Planning my 21st Birthday Ball
Yes, yes, looking for catering halls and/or party places that are elegant and nice more or less. Plan to hold a book signing at the event, have the attendees dress up as their favorite Dark Creatures or favorite character of the story and whoever dresses up the best will win a free signed copy of The Immortal’s Guide and a free copy of my next up-coming novel. I only turn 21 once, I wanted to do something fun, especially since I didn’t have a sweet sixteen. I’m in the Long Island area and I’m currently looking for places. If you…
Writing And (Literal) Pain / Sex Scenes / Six Sentence Sunday
Just now getting off my monthly monster, intense abdominal pains have returned and I can’t for the life of me figure out why. But enough with the TMI, on to the writing! So I’ve been a busy beaver these past few weeks, promoting my series and my upcoming book seen all over my website and this blog. I’ve decided to show some excerpts here and there from the book up until the book release (nothing too revealing; scenes that could be used as stand alones, really), and very much like the one previously posted, they’ll more often than not reveal the…
I’ve Been Busy
So I’ve been exceptionally busy creating websites, making promotions for The Immortal’s Guide and registering domain names. Insofar as actual writing, well that’s taken a dive, but it is to be remedied fairly quickly seeing as how I have to update an E-Book format of The Dark World asap. Since creating the website, which you can find by clicking the link, a greater direction of where I’m taking the series began to become clearer (even more so than it was before), and by allowing my fans to join the site, becoming “Dark Creatures” as it were, they are able to join…
Xavier Delacroix and Fans
So the past few days have been riddled with strange dreams pertaining to The Delacroix Series, but nothing that would inherently influence the way I see the story. One theme has been reoccurring: Xavier Delacroix has received greater attention in these dreams. It seems reality is not too far behind. The other day I received at least three different people showing their interest in my book, trying to figure out how they could go about purchasing it. And another reader (who has admitted to slowly reading it), has apparently just reached Chapter 5 (or passed it, who knows), for he…
Killing Off Characters
So while in the locker room at college today with my dear friend who has read both The Dark World and The Immortal’s Guide, said that she wants a lot of characters to die, upon my asking who she thought should. I was shocked at one of her suggestions, as the character she mentioned was (not only one of my favorites), but was, in fact, quite integral to showing the state of the soul once one ventured through The Immortal’s Guide, and did something else that I won’t mention here for lack of spoiling things. It just shocked me. Even…
