*drum roll….* Here is the special thing I promised you guys!
Beloved October is coming to a close very soon and November aka National Novel Writing Month aka NaNoWriMo aka ‘A Month of Hell and Caffeine’ is right around the corner (*arms in the air*Yay!). Plus! This is a very special year indeed, because we also have the presidential vote coming up (*weak* yay…).
Am I the only person sick and tired of all the political negativity being blasted after every other commercial on the T.V. and radio, not to mention the internet? Seriously! I’ve seen less slop thrown at a pig farm than what these politicians are doing to each other. So to lighten up the mood…we’re going to have our own voting session!
I’ve been struggling to pick out a story manuscript for NaNoWriMo, so I thought I’d let you the people pick it for me. I like making up mock-book covers to help inspire me through my writing “effort” and I’ve Photoshopped four, count them FOUR covers for FOUR different stories. Read the blurbs underneath each one and then cast your vote as many times as you want on the one you would want to read the most and the one with the most votes by November 1st, I’ll attempt to complete.
This is Writing A Silver Broomstick and I approve this message…

Greeting From Planet Earth…Now Get Me Out of Here!
Jane Smith isn’t your average freshman. She can do Quantum physics in her sleep, she’s never heard of the Cee-vil War and she thinks her neighbor’s cat is trying to eat her. That because ‘Jane Smith’ is not just a transfer student, she’s a transfer student from another world! After ‘Jane’ and her crew make an emergency bathroom landing on Earth, their spaceship is locked down by the Home Planet for entering a recognized hostile zone. In order to return home, Jane and her crew must document modern human life as a human family for one Earth year or else… One thing Jane sure learns is that no matter what planet you’re one, high school drama is universal.
I”ve been talking about a book of the month page for a while and here it is! The very first Book of the Month will be a novel that is close to my heart and changed my life forever. It’s a little romance novel called “Love Bite” by Lynsay Sands.
This was the very first romance novel that I ever read. I know that everyone has their own opinion on romance novels with the debate if romance should be considered having “literary merit”. But let’s take a look at the key word ‘literary’ deriving from ‘literature’. According to Webster, literature is the art of written letters and literary merit being that the letters are a work of art. Everyone has their own version of what art is. Some like Picasso and others like velvet Elvis.
I think every genre or writing whether it be romance, western, historical, sci-fi, or contemporary that it’s a masterpiece…no matter how poorly written the book may be. Consider all the work the author put into this. Having written a book I know that writing a novel is like being pregnant and giving birth. Your idea is your baby that you carry inside you and care for and nurture with your own life essence. Typing the manuscript is the birth. It’s long, scary and it’s painful (sometimes finding the perfect verb is like pulling teeth). You start having second thoughts half way into it thinking “Maybe this wasn’t such a good idea” but it’s too late now, you’re already seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Then it’s done, and you have a competed manuscript in your hands, a piece of yourself that you’ve spent months maybe years on and now you smile and think, “It was worth it. I’m glad I did this.”
I am so sorry for my rant but back to the book. It’s the first book in Sand’s Argeneau series , but I think it was the second published… don’t quote me on that. It’s about a woman named Rachel who longs to see the light of day and not because she’s a vampire but because she works nights at the local morgue in Toronto. When a handsome corpse shows up on the slab she can’t help but be attracted to him. Luckily for her he’s only undead. This is a great book for anyone who loves vampires and a good love story. The most interesting part is how Sands Made her vampires not by mystical means but by ancient Atlantean science. But it doesn’t make her books any less magical. I give this book 4 out of 5 broomsticks for originality, sexy love scenes and funny vampire humor.
