NaNoWriMo Snippet & Update!


As I am writing this post I have 12,649 words written and let me tell you, once I actually get the story completed, I have a lot of editing to do! So how are you guys doing? 
I also wanted to take this time and share a small part of my novel, it's the Prelude. So read it and tell me what you think. I'd love to hear all of your thoughts little sunflowers! And to those doing NaNoWriMo, don't worry, you still have plenty of days left this month. That's what I'm telling myself at least.

The Choice 

         Light blue eyes watched the small blonde girl as she twirled around. The happiness on her face was abundant but there was also a smugness in her thoughts. She felt she deserved what she was getting. The wind blew his dyed brown hair around his face and it also caused the girl’s dress to ghost around her legs.

“It’s all so amazing.” The girl’s voice rang through the crisp early morning air. The grass was still a vivid green, but that wouldn’t last for long, autumn was coming and with it a new queen. “I mean this is stuff all girls dream about. Becoming a queen, finding true love.”

The young man wanted to laugh at her, he’d played his part in this game well. He’d convinced her completely. “So then have you chosen?”

She stopped as her eyes searched the dense forest around them, “is Danny here?”

A lightly tanned hand pointed over to a large tree covered in moss, “he’s been there the whole time, so say it. Him or me?”

The girl seemed to pause but only for a second, “I’ve chosen.” Holding up her necklace, she showed it to the young man, it was a solid white heart. The only one like it in the whole world and beyond. “I choose you.”

An almost cruel smile spread across the prince of Heaven’s face. Even though he knew he’d win again, the feeling was still such a high. “Good choice. Hear that, brother? You can go now. See you in the next one hundred years.”

The man behind the tree looked up at the sunlight peeking through the canopy, arms crossed over his chest. He knew he was going to lose. After all, to win, you need to actually fight. Yes, his father would be angry, but he couldn’t force someone to chose him. That was against the rules of this terrible game.

“Don’t worry D, we’ll get the next one.” The boy gently patted his shoulder.
But the prince of Hell knew better. He’d never win and part of him hoped he never would.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading! 

Bisexual Erasure (Pride Month)

Happy Pride! Since today is bisexual day, I wanted to talk about something important to me. I hope you'll listen with open ears, mind, and heart. Thank you.  I’ve seen this happening for years now. People will say things like, “it’s a phase” or “pick a side.” I’ve even seen some say that bisexual people only like cisgender men and women and exclude all other genders. Which isn’t always the case. Sure, some bisexual people feel that way, which is why pansexual and other names came into play. But at its core, being bisexual just means that you’re attracted to more than just one gender.  I’ve never hidden on this blog the fact that I’m bisexual but I rarely talk about the struggles I feel because it just never felt right when you have gay people that have to hide their complete selves for fear of what the world could do to them.  Or trans people who spend every day trapped in the wrong body and can’t tell anyone to get the things they need to be their truth selves.  Put against issues
