writer FAIL

when you realize you forgot all about co-writing a novel, you might send your partner this email:

OH MY OGSH!!!!!  I FORGOT ABOUT OUR BABY TTM THAT I REALLY AM IN LOVE WITH AND I HAVEN'T WRITTEN ANYTHING IN SO LONG AND I THOUGHT I'D HAVE SO MUCH TIME THIS SUMMER AND I'M SOOOOOO SORRY!

(and even misspell words in your haste and embarrassment)

you may forget all about your co-novel because this year's WRITEONCON is just around the corner and you are trying to ready a novel for the awesome epicness that is WRITEONCON.

(i am repolotting an old novel and plotting a new novel.  i wonder which will get plotted and written first?  they are duking it out to make it across the August 14 finish line.)

also, i've been reading.

PLEASE CHECK OUT THESE NOVELETTES BY OUR FELLOW BLOGGER AND FRIEND RACHEL MORGAN.  (i totally meant to be a part of her initial book launch, months ago, but i'm hoping it's better late than never as far as plugging a fellow writer's books!  plus, in waiting, i can now say that i have read them and am addicted!  you will NOT be disappointed.) 

1. Receive assignment.
2. Save a life.
3. Sleep.
4. Repeat.


Protecting humans from dangerous magical creatures is all in a day's work for a faerie training to be a guardian. Seventeen-year-old Violet Fairdale knows this better than anyone--she's about to become the best guardian the Guild has seen in years. That is, until one of her assignments--a human boy who shouldn't even be able to see her--follows her into the fae realm. Now she's broken Guild Law, a crime that could lead to her expulsion.

The last thing Vi wants to do is spend any more time with the boy who got her into this mess, but the Guild requires that she return Nate to his home and make him forget everything he's discovered of the fae realm. Easy, right? But Nate and Vi are about to land themselves in even bigger trouble--and it'll take all Vi's training to get them out alive.


I am impressed by her writing (read:  clean, descriptive, well-plotted), characters (read:  voice, voice, voice), romance (read:  racing heart and swooning), and artistry (read:  beautiful covers), and marketing (read:  I'm so intrigued by how she chose to self-pub that I want to do it myself!).  The books (Three are out already, a fourth comes out next week!)  are only $0.99.

        
BUY NOW!                BUY NOW!                 BUY NOW!               COMING SOON!

  2. Squeeee! My stories! And you're saying awesome things about them! Okay, I'll stop being excessive with the exclamation marks now ;-) Seriously, though ... THANK YOU :-)
    And I think "ogsh" should be a word. It's the kinda word Roald Dahl or Dr Seuss would use, and they were totally cool!

  3. I'm totally spelling it 'Ogsh' from now on. Also, I can't believe that I haven't bought Rachel's novellettes yet! I'm so absent-minded!

  5. Luckily, over the past 2 years, I've gotten a degree in Christy as a Second Language, because Ogsh, her emails have some creative spelling in them!! :)

    Write your heart out, my friend - whichever MS you choose!!!

  6. Laughing so hard at "forgetting about your baby"...it is possible that there are too many balls in the air here, eh? Yay for Rachel. And I can't wait to hear what comes of WRITEONCON for you all.

  7. Oh no! And wow, you sound as though maybe you've had a bit too much caffeine in your attempt to catch up. ;) I've got to check out Rachel's books, they look and sound fantastic!

  8. I absolutely loved Guardian. Unfortunately, my tbr list is too long already, and since I've already read Guardian, I plan to hold off on the other ones until my list shortens. But if they are anything like Guardian, it will be worth the wait.
