In Which I'm On Hiatus

Hey y'all.

I'm on a strict deadline right now, which means I just don't have time to keep up with the blog for the next few weeks.

So I'm on a hiatus until this book is finished.

See you on the flip side.

Wednesday Weird: Blockbuster Ghost

It's been awhile since we've had a ghost or haunting video for Wednesday Weird and today I have a good/fun one.

This is a video of a clerk stocking a blockbuster. The video gets progressively better, so keep watching until the end.

(also, remember Blockbusters? Man, clearly there's more than one ghost in this video)

Okay, now that that's out of my system, here's the video

Thoughts or theories?

In Which I Have ASSASSIN'S HEART Updates!

Yay! Time for some ASSASSIN'S HEART updates! (which, doy. That's what the title says)

First, I've been doing some giveaways for arcs. I just wrapped up a twitter giveaway. But, if you missed it, don't fret!

I've scheduled a Goodreads giveaway starting next Monday. I'll provide a link when it's ready, but keep you eyes peeled if you want a chance to win one of two arcs.

Second, I'm so super, super excited to announce that ASSASSIN'S HEART is going to be released in Audio!

I cannot express how stoked I am about this, guys. An audio book! For my book!  ALL THE CONFETTI!

I think I'll listen to it on a car trip. Though I can't decide if that will be really cool, or really weird. Probably a bit about both.

Do you listen to audio books? Do you think it would be cool, or weird to listen to someone else read your own book to you?

Friday Fun


We made it through another week! We should be rewarded, don't you think?

a reward we can eat?

Yes! Time for some Friday Fun!

Wednesday Weird: Dead Man's Chair

Today we have another cursed item. Specifically a chair.

In 1702, Thomas Busby was convicted of murdering his father-in-law in North Yorkshire and sentenced to death by hanging. After he was hanged his body was dipped in pitch and strung up in a gibbet.
Before he died, though, he cursed to death anyone who sat in his chair at the next door inn/pub.

The chair remained in the pub for centuries, and guests would often dare one another to sit in the cursed seat. During World War II, airmen from a nearby base frequented the pub, and locals noticed that the soldiers who sat in the chair would never return from war.

The pub owner changed the name to Busby's Stoop, since a cursed chair was good publicity.


They even had a fake noose hanging outside next to the pub.

In 1967, two Royal Air Force pilots sat in the chair, only to crash their truck into a tree just after they left. In 1970, a mason sat down in the chair and died that same afternoon by falling into a hole at his job site. A year later, a roofer who sat in it died after the roof he was working on collapsed. When the pub's cleaning lady tripped and fell into the chair, she died shortly afterwards from a brain tumor. 

Finally the pub owner moved the chair into the basement. Unfortunately, even in storage the chair claimed another victim. After a delivery man took a quick rest while unloading packages in the store room, he was killed in a car accident that same day. 

The chair is attributed to 63 deaths and eventually, the pub owner donated the chair to the local museum in 1972. The museum displays the chair by hanging on the wall so that no one can sit in it by mistake again. 

Thoughts or theories?

Friday Fun

Better sniff the grass while you have the chance

And you know what that means: Time for some Friday fun!

Insecure Writer's Support Group

It's the first Wednesday of the month which means it's time for IWSG

Co-hosts this week are  Julie Flanders, Murees DupĂ©, Dolorah at Book Lover, Christine Rains, and Heather Gardner

I can't even believe that we've reached September already. I feel like just yesterday it was June. This summer just sped past.

I'm feeling really good, right now. Which is good, because I was pretty stressed the last month or two. But I did a crap ton of revisions on my WIP and I think it came out a lot stronger.
It still needs work, of course, but at least now it has a leg to stand on.

Of course, I haven't even finished the draft. I was at 82k, but with the revisions it's now down to 64k (and I cut closer to 30k, I just was also adding new stuff, too) but I haven't reach The End yet. Which is what I'll be concentrating on this month.

September will have to be a crazy NaNo. But instead of doing 1600 words a day, I'm going to be aiming for 4k a day. Well, not every day, but weekdays, anyway. Once I finish this draft, my life will be so much easier. I'll be able to relax some, take it a little easier. Work on some other things I've had to put aside for now.

So I guess that means I'm not feeling that insecure right now. Of course that could change. I mean, I'm writing this post on Sunday, and by the time it posts on Wednesday any amount of crazy stuff could happen. But still. Right now I'm good. And the horizon is in sight.

How are things for you right now?
