Evening :D

I know. It’s nearly midnight and I’m not in bed… Though by the time I post this it’ll be well past midnight. Well, can’t sleep. That shouldn’t come as a surprise…

Anyway, I thought what better way to spend my time than to sit on the computer ๐Ÿ˜€ (Course I need to clean the kitchen and etc, but who really wants to… especially this late.)

Ok, first things first.



Yup, Inner Strength will be completely FREE on Amazon tomorrow (well today) and Monday! First time ever that it’s been free so better snag a copy! I don’t think it’ll show up free till US pacific time – so like 3 more hours. ย Also, remember you don’t need a kindle to read ebooks! (Just go HERE for a list of all of Amazon’s kindle reading apps. Plus, they’re all free!)

Ok, enough promoting ๐Ÿ˜‰ So, today my boyfriend and I went to campus so that I could finally walk around and see where all of my classes will be! They’re all actually pretty easy to get to, and I won’t need to get a parking pass since his job is right across the street from the university! Just means I’ll need to walk a little bit more. (Which I’m actually looking forward to since I feel like it’ll help me a lot.)

Sigh, I never thought that finding a pair of lime green pants would be this difficult. I need it for the cosplay that I’ll be doing at Matsuricon in about 2 weeks! So excited and cannot wait to go! My boyfriend got off really easy with just needing everything to be black. I tried dying a pair of white pants, but that didn’t work…

So the food “experiment” is working pretty well… At least we’re finding out what we don’t like ๐Ÿ˜‰ So, as I mentioned in a couple posts ago we decided to try Japanese food for the first week. We had onigiri, yakisoba, and korokke. All were decent enough. The onigiri and korokke we thought we could experiment more with in flavors and such to get to something we’d enjoy more. The yakisobe was too similar to the stir-fry I already make that it wasn’t really anything special.
We did just finish French week. The french toast was definitely the best I’ve ever had, but the tartiflette was – different – and the steak frites… well the fries were awesome. I also really enjoyed the lemon souffle, though my boyfriend didn’t like it since he doesn’t like lemon flavored desserts.
Now, we are going into Italian week and after that it’ll be German.

Well, I think I’ll close, maybe clean the kitchen :p and possibly be able to fall asleep.



Inner Peace release day!

Yay, yay, yay! It is here! Inner Peace has hit Amazon and is now available for purchase ๐Ÿ˜€



Also, now’s the perfect time to pick up a copy of the first book, Inner Strength. On sale for only $.99!



(Both books are also available on Amazon in paperback for anyone that doesn’t have an ereader)

Cheers and happy reading!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

V day


Happy Valentine’s everyone! Wishing y’all a wonderful day! โค

Trying to make some Valentine sugar cookies – the cats think they’re helping by climbing up on the counters to watch me :p Afterwards I have nothing much planned.. My boyfriend doesn’t like Valentine’s Day and so I don’t expect him to do anything for it.


Anyway, I cannot believe that Survivor will be releasing in a week! Whoo! I’m so excited ๐Ÿ˜€ Unfortunately, I’m afraid that there’ll be a delay in the print version (isn’t there always). but the ebooks will still be on time!


Oh, and Inner Strengthย is 50% off for a limited time! (ebook only version)ย If you still haven’t picked up your copy you really should now ๐Ÿ˜€
(Here’s the links: Kindle ย or Nook)

I think that’s about it. Have a lovely day/weekend!



It’s Almost Goodbye 2012

Well, I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas! Mine was good.

I really can’t believe that 2012 is nearly over. The year has had some ups and downs, but the best thing of all was being able to start my writing/publishing career ๐Ÿ™‚

We’re still at my boyfriend’s parents and will be leaving tomorrow or Sunday. That’ll give us about a week to finish packing for the move! I’m so excited!
So that means, around mid January I should be able to finally host the post-release day party for Inner Strength! (Remember to pick up your copy if you haven’t yet – I’m planning on having a special contest for those who’ve read it!)

And I’m pretty sure that Survivor (Cats’ Biographies: Book 1) will be released in February! Working on getting that finished up and will settle on the actual date shortly.

For now, Cheers!

It’s Friday!


Ok this week went by in a blur… We’re leaving tonight to go spend a week at my boyfriend’s parents – can’t wait for Christmas! ๐Ÿ˜€

I’ve been busy all day trying to get stuff packed and ready for us to be gone for so long… Didn’t even realize what day it was until I woke up this morning and then was very upset that I hadn’t gotten anything completed beforehand. lol. ย Once we get back we’ll pretty much have to move. So this will be a hectic next few weeks, but I’m eagerly looking forward to it!

Still have some Christmas shopping to finish up and will do that in the next day or so. Also have to get the kitties ready to go visit their “grandparents” (yes, we take all five with us ๐Ÿ˜‰ Can’t leave them alone for that long.) Will be going to the hospital to visit my boyfriend’s grandmother who had a stroke and now has to spend Christmas there ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Been editing Survivor (Cats’ Biographies, book 1) and am excited to release that (hopefully) in February! And of course working on Inner Peace (Guardians of Ferrum: Book 2) which I am shooting to have released in the spring!

I forgot to mention in yesterday’s announcement – Sakura Designs does offer pre-made book covers for only $20. So if you’re needing one immediately or just maybe wanting to give your book a face lift you should check it out and see if there’s one that would fit you! Here’s the link ๐Ÿ™‚

Annnd before I go. Just to remind anyone that hasn’t picked up their copy of Inner Strength ๐Ÿ˜‰ you can get a copy for the Nook or Kindle (remember the kindle edition works on anything – smartphones, tablets, pcs – that have a kindle reading app so you don’t have to own a kindle to still get an ebook copy!) and there is always the paperback.
I’ve been told that the book is awesome! Great read for anyone that likes Steampunk/Fantasy and would make an excellent Christmas gift too! ๐Ÿ˜€

Ok, better get and finish making sure that everything is ready to leave.


Excited :D

Ok, I am really excited! ๐Ÿ˜€

So we found out yesterday that our applications were accepted for the new apartment! It’s a really awesome complex and a major upgrade from anywhere we’ve lived before so I am soooo happy that worked out! No more apartment hunting which is one major stress off the mind.
We move the first week of January, so at most 3 weeks before we get to be in our new place! I’m already planning out some wall murals to paint once we get settled.

We also took our two girl cats to the vet yesterday because they were the only ones out of the five that we hadn’t been able to getย micro-chippedย yet. We definitely wanted to get that done before we moved so just in case the worst were to happen that they somehow escape. They both did great and we found out that apparently female orange cats are somewhat rare. That just makes our lovely Miss Aqua even more special than she already thinks she is. ๐Ÿ˜‰


I did receive the print copies of Inner Strength and they look AWESOME! I am so pleased with how they came out!


And tonight I get to go and see The Hobbit! I’m a huge Lord of the Rings/Tolkien fan – for anyone that didn’t know – and so I cannot wait to see it! My boyfriend is taking me out to see it, along with dinner, sort of as my belated birthday. Since it fell on a Monday this year I didn’t get to really do anything so he had told me we’d celebrate it this weekend. So it sounds like a good start to a, should be, awesome weekend!

Well, the cats are all begging for breakfast so I should go appease them.


Know someone that likes YA books?
