Hi, how are you today?
oh wow! that would be pretty cool :) when will you find out if you got the job?
dawn of the vampire was actually much better than i'd expected it to be. i recommend if you like the scary vamp stories!
i just love snow! it's raining here now, but supposed to turn to snow i believe :) but i dont think it's supposed to amount to anything this time..
after dawn of the vampire i read the first princess diaries book in a day and a half lol it was really cute. quite different than the movie, but still really good!
and now i'm reading Good in Bed by Jennifer Weiner
we got about 7" or so over the weekend. it was great haha
oh i def wanna read Speak. it looks super good!
the book of tomorrow was absolutely fantastic! i loved it!
now i'm reading Dawn of the Vampire...which was written in 1991 lol but it is set at a lake 40 minutes from where i live that i go to several times over the summer haha so it's pretty cool to read about the area in a vampire book haha
everything is good. we've had stinkin rain for a few days now lol but we're supposed to get more snow tomorrow and thursday :)
i finally finished speechless, which was ok, but not great. then silver is for secrets, the third in the blue is for nightmares series. and i think it's been the best of the series so far. now i'm readin the book of tomorrow by cecelia ahern and living it!
Hi! And yes, I have read a great book lately. it's called "Hunger Games" by Susan Collins. it is soooo good. It's about this girl who has to go into an arena and fight to the death with a bunch of other kids. It's very emotional and thrilling! There's also a love story thrown in there. So far there are two books in the series. And in 2011 a movie is supposed to come out. It's one of my favorite books.
My beta reader loved it and I sent it to my editor. Just wanting for the edits and I can't wait to see the cover for it! I already thought of the title for the next one, Champion of Valor. It'll be the last in the series but I'll be writing more set in that medieval fantasy world.
ahh it's been forever!! haha
how much snow do you guys have? we got 8 inches the weekend before christmas, and that all melted and we've had a couple inches a couple times since then. now it's snowing again :P
thatd make an awesome story! haha i like that idea :P
i haven't read any meg cabot, which seems crazy! but i've got plenty of her books on my plan to read! which have you read?
lets see since my last post i've read
Made In the USA- Which i loved! a new fav, can't wait to read more of that authors work! it was amazing!
teach me- extremely disappointing. book about a student/teacher relationship that goes too far. the story never really developed.
beautiful child - a great true story about a special ed teacher and one of her extraordinary classes
whistling in the dark - a great mystery/fiction. set in the 50s i believe...told from a 10 yr old point of view but def not children/ya read. its wonderful
the gift by cecelia ahern - absolutey amazing! a new fav. she never fails to amaze me with her books. i went ahead and ordered her next book from ireland, since it wont be out in the usa til november lol
and now i'm reading speechless. a decent chicklit, but not great.
i love love love that pic haha it's just so cute
aww haha sorry you've been so busy, but glad you had a chance to come back and send a note :P
oh nothing pathetic about that at all! i like going back and reading childrens books from time to time i have to admit :P yeah def let me know which ones you get to pick up!
yes i love nightmare before christmas! it was playing halloween weekend in our local theater in 3d :P didn't get to go, but bet it was awesome!!

Hi, thanks for being my friend! Woman of Honor is currently available in ebook format. As of this weekend, I'm halfway through Knight of Glory, the sequel. Lots of action in this one, as well as introducing some of the other races in the fantasy world.
