Cabin Fever

13 Apr

Yeah. Cabin Fever.

Everytime I finish a book, this is me. I run out of things to do, and I’m so used to being inside, that the thought of even approaching my door seems daunting

and the car is getting an oil change, so I have no car.

I feel like I need an adventure! And not just any adventure, but Indiana Jones, James bond, go on a vacation, adventure.

But I don’t have my car.

So a walk around the neighborhood in the rain will have to do.

Knight Angels now Available on Kindle and Amazon. Barnes and Noble. And others to come… (nook, sony e-reader, iPad…)

Manic Monday: Another Year Older? That’s a Good Reason to be Manic…

22 Mar
  
Happy Birthday?
  

I’m finally at that age where you start realizing that you really are getting older. At first you don’t see it coming… You aren’t getting wrinkles yet, you can still live off three hours of sleep, your metabolism manages to rebound after a long weekend, and life still surprises you…

 

Well, life will always surprise me, but that whole metabolism thing is definitely out the window. Two words: Rice Cakes…

 

So long Girl Scout cookies,

 

Tagalongs,

 

mint chocolate wafers,

 

and especially those coconut things…

 

Nice try, but cupcakes are nothing more than a beautiful reminder of what once was my waist-line… Oh well, right? I guess I have other things to look forward to: Social Security, Depends, and of course Ensure for my future toothless grin.

  

But…

  

Then again…

 

I’m only 26!

 

So I guess that means there’s still a beer in order. And if I play my card right, maybe a New York Times Bestselling Book…

 

Happy Birthday, Me; and may all my dreams come true!

 
(and thank goodness for my future Botox… someday…)

Friday Book Trailers!!

19 Feb

Yay! Just what I needed in the middle of the week – a break from books! Well, sort of.

I decided that today I wanted to talk about book trailers! I recently made two new trailers for my new series, which I will share below, but there are so many other trailers out there as well! I’ve decided to compile the trailers to some of my favorite books, also…
 

First Mine:

My Other Favorites!

I like this trailer because it was a Teen Choice Award Winner for Fallen…
 
 
Official Fallen trailer…
 
 
 
Because I loved these books!!! The Hunger Games…
 
 
Blue bloods…
 

Organize The Proper Way to Organize Your Bookshelf!

11 Feb

  

How To Properly Organize That Shelf!!!

Don’t we all love our books! And how we LOVE to have them out on the open all day long, there to remind us to read them, or simply bask in the story they told! I have often pondered over the best way to organize a book shelf, and I have come to one simple conclusion…

 
Organizing by content is close to impossible.
  
This is why I love the idea of organizing by color. When I think of books, it’s never the author I remember, or even the name, but often it’s the color. I am a very visual person, and therefore this works best for me, even if it does place a series of three books apart from one another. Like Harry Potter, all over the place.
 
Chaos is order for some 🙂
 
But if it’s alphabetical your after, don’t fret. That offers an array of randomly ordered books. But there are many way to organize your shelf, all unique to you! Here are some ideas: 

 

1. Color
– course you have to have plenty of books. The issue I always run into is that most of mine are violet because of the type, but still, so unique!!!
 
2. Characters
– place them in order from favorite to least fav.
– or most villainous to least villainous
  
3. Star Rating! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
– I like this one. Get a sheet of those little gold stars and when you’re done reading a book, rate it by placing the appropriate star count on the spine!! Then you’ll always know what you thought!!  
 
4. Alphabetical
– truly classic, and an easy go to.
 
 
5. Random Disarray!
– Nothing wrong with liking it random! Just make sure you’re taking care of those beautiful works of art! They are important to us all!!!

Thank You!!!

I wanted to thank all my Feather readers for making this past December and January my best months yet!!! I am truly shocked, but also touched to have so many people out there becoming a part of my world 🙂 I am so excited with the job (I hardly see it as a job, it’s more like fun) I do everyday – so excited that people like you, also enjoy my work!

I promise many more GREAT stories to come, including my upcoming new series Knight Angels starting with book one: Book of Love, a teen romance sure to tickle your fancy, and disprove the cliché of most teen romances hitting the shelves these days. Something fresh, yet familiar, with no lack of all the things you came to love about the Feather Book Series

I’ve already finished the rough draft of the manuscript, and I’m sending it off to those that give me positive criticism and editing 😉 I expect to be ready to release it in March. After all, March is my birthday month!

Don’t forget that I’ve changed blogs, and I don’t want you to miss out!!!

Some updates on my amazing trip to Arizona.

I’ve never been to Arizona, and in fact, I’ve never been that far south, unless you count Australia (Which I don’t). When we touched down and drove out to the rental house, I couldn’t help but secretly wonder where Stephanie Meyer lives, lol.

I can’t get enough of those cacti!!!! I love them!, like my niece says, “They’re just like people with four arms!” and she wonders what if they are? She’s 6 folks! And already she wonders about things no normal six-year-old does. She actually thought that the cacti were perhaps souls of the dead… And I wonder where I get my ideas.

I’ve been reading The Immortals series, and the most profound thing she said was that she sees colors. If you’ve read the series, then you know what I mean. I asked my niece to explain, and she went on and on about how each person has a color surrounding them, 

“Like you, aunt Abby, you’re green!”

She didn’t really say that, but she should have! I am jealous! My little psychic companion!

So aside from hanging with my exceptionally intelligent niece, I also got to hang out with my two best friends. My sister-in-law and I have known each other since we were 3! And my other best friend Amy, the light of my life and the funniest person I’ve ever met, was also in the bridal party! Oh, yeah, it was my sister in laws wedding, which you would know if you follow my Tweets!

Anyway, I’ll post some photos of me decked out in bright bright blue silk when I get the chance, lol…

Let the Countdown Begin!

31 Dec

Opening The Door on a New Year

I know what you’re thinking, you think I mean the countdown to New Years Eve, but nope, you are way wrong! Today starts the countdown to Book Three: Raven! In just weeks, Raven will hit the market, fewer if you’re a Kindler! I find it fitting it should start today, but why not? Feather: Book One was released in January one year ago, and now here we are, at the end of the series!

Once Raven is over, and the angels and demons of that book are put to rest, I will then release an all new series which I believe will be bigger and better! Knight Angels Series. While finding influence from The Hunger Games, Supernatural, and other great movies like Sherlock Holmes, I hope that this new series provides an array of exciting adventures, love stories, and of course tragedy!

With an expanded vocabulary, and a deeper understanding of what a makes up a great book, I believe they’ll just keep getting better!

In the new year, I hope to continue working toward my dreams of literary fame, and fun. I love helping people, and it has, and still will be my mission to reply to all those that ask for advice/or just plain say hi! So say hi!

What I’m Reading Now: The Hunger Games

29 Dec

Took me a while to finally get around to reading this book. It’s been floating around my house for close to nine months now! My friends Amber and Kenny lent it to me, raving about how great and twisted it was, and so far I agree!

I didn’t really know what to expect, especially considering the fact that it’s a young adult read. So far I’m only on page 35, but already I’m feeling anxious. I wonder what it does to young people? Wouldn’t it perhaps freak them out? Because it freaks me out.

Very excited to read more into Suzanne’s world…

I’m so sick of being sick!

8 Dec

For the second time in the last two months, I am sick again. I think it’s another flu, but not near as bad as that first one! I still contest that it was the Swine Flu: the coughing, the everything, it had to have been. This one is more a head thing, except for the first day. Despite the sickness, I did still get around to doing my pilates today, and my elliptical.

I finally saw what one of those hampster toy things, that’s all the craze for Christmas, actually does. It’s crazy what kids go nuts for.

I made the yearly batch of Chex Mix today! I love it homemade, because then there are no brown bagle chips, and a lot less salt. I also don’t use the whole wheat chex, yuck. I just use pretzels, Corn Chex, Rice Chex, Mixed Nuts, and then after I BAKE it (Microwave? Really, come on, yuck) I add a bag of chocolate covered almonds. I love chocolate and salt, yeah!

Book Stuff

I got a little writing done today, but what I’m really excited for is Raven to come back from editor so that I can get it finalized and released for January! My writing is doing really well, and lately I’ve been inspired by that new show on the CW, Supernatural. I had been watching Vampire Diaries, but there are no new episodes, and quite frankly, it’s a little cheesy if you ask me, but still, I consider it research.

Good stuff.
