Late night gallivanting

So here I am again exploring the internet in the wee hours of the morning.
I haven’t done a blog post in a while. I’ve been busy working and studying. I also don’t feel like I have anything overly important to talk about. That leads me to this post. Is it really that important to announce that I am on the computer late at night? Probably not haha!

Anyway! What I really want to talk about is passion. I truly believe that everyone is passionate about something in their life. For me, it’s music and writing. Whenever I feel inspired, happy, motivated, or passionate; I turn to one of those things. I feel lucky that I can without too much judgement. What I mean is people accept that I am passionate about music and writing, and they support me.

I feel sorry for anyone who is told that they can’t do what they enjoy doing. For example I have a friend who really loves to play video games. Many people look down upon him because he is ‘wasting his life.’ Ok, I understand that too much of anything isn’t exactly healthy, but that is true for anything. So what if he likes to play games? He still works and plays an active part in society. Should he really be judged because he likes to play games in his spare time?

I’m sure people would disapprove if they know how many T.V. shows I watch. It’s a lot......seriously. To that I say: who cares. I like T.V. shows, and when it comes to Once Upon a Time I’m passionate about it. It’s a good thing to do what you love best. As long as your happy that’s all that matters. Pay your bills, work, socialize, and enjoy your passion.

On that note! I’d love to hear from anyone who wants to share. What are you passionate about? What is it that YOU love to do most?

Why... Oh why! OH WHY!!..... must I love books.

Ok well this question has been pounding in my head all weekend. I have been reading and writing like a crazy woman. That never happens.....EVER!
That's because I usually partake in life either socializing, working, playing music, patting my cats or spending time with my boyfriend.

All of those things happened this weekend, but not without my laptop and kindle in my hands at all times. I've been super motivated, but multitasking is the excuse I've made to allow books to take over my life. 
I say that with a smile, but I wonder if I should be worried...... :D
I love books too much. 

Anyway small rant over. I better pull myself away from the internet before goodreads takes over my life as well.  :D

So I'm going to give myself a shot at KDPS which will put the e-book version of my novel solely onto Amazon for a while.

Some people say it's done really good things for them. Others not so much, but I think I'll give it a shot.

I do plan on making me book available everywhere else again one day. For now, if you want a copy of my book, it will be at Amazon.

I want to review books!

Part of releasing my novel included searching for and looking for some book bloggers who might want to review it. It was a lengthy process, but I have a few people lined up now. I'm super excited to see the feedback. It's nerve-wracking, but I am interested to know what people think. I've had a couple of great ratings. Check out good reads if you want to see.

Anyway the reason I'm posting this is because during the searching process I developed a real soft spot for book bloggers! They spend their precious reading time to help self-published authors get noticed.

All I have to say is people who read and review self-published novels..... YOU ARE AWESOME!!!

You are so awesome you have inspired me! That's why I want to review novels. I've already read a million books and I want a place to talk about them. I ALSO want to help really great self-published authors get noticed. I know how hard it is. I'm in the middle of it myself.

So I have decided that I will make a sister blog to this one. This will remain as my blog where I talk about myself and my novels. The other blog will be where I talk about what I am reading and reviewing. It will be a mixture of published and self-published novels. (whatever I'm reading) and I will be open to accepting review requests.

Oh so exciting!

Anyway!!! Here is a link to my new blog: Paranormal Book Escapades where you can discover what I discover (If you want) :D

The Keepers 2 - Blurb Reveal

The second book in the Keepers trilogy is well underway. In the print version of the first novel I introduced the blurb for the novel so it's about time I share it on my blog.

As of now I don't have a title for the second installment, but I do have some ideas. Until it's named here is a peak of what to expect:

Ava’s new responsibilities as a Keeper force her two lives to collide.
After an unforeseen tragedy, Ava must choose between the secret society of magic that needs her, or her ordinary life. Her decision will unravel secrets the Keepers are trying so desperately to hide, and lead her to discover her own truths. But can she abandon her best friend or the Keepers’ greater good?
   It will take Ava’s everything to find the truth in a world full or secrets, betrayals and chaos.
   But is it worth the cost of everything she hold dear?

I am really excited to share the second book with everyone. I can't wait until the day I can announce it's completion!

I'm a bit predictable...

I haven't done a post in a while because there's not a lot of book news at the moment. So....I decided to talk about a little obsession of mine..... TEA.

I love it in almost any taste, form and color. I often talk about how I love tea, but I hadn't realized just how much until my birthday when the majority of my birthday presents consisted of tea related items.

I'm not complaining at all because (to tell you the truth) I am completely stoked! I'm kinda glad I'm so predictable because I got some awesome gifts! I am, however, quite worried about the sudden influx of tea in my collection. It has come a bit excessive to the point where I don't know if I can drink it all anytime soon. To give you guys a indication of what I'm talking about I have added a picture of my tea related items:

I have a whole cupboard dedicated to this mess. The crazy thing it most of them are presents (including both teapots and the box). My friends are fueling my obsession. To that I say: Thank you. You know me well/I am predictable.

If anyone shares this obsession with me post a pic of your tea collection or simply let me know what you favorite flavors are. I'd love to know!
