Reed and Cami

I know a lot of people wanted a continuation of Reed and Cami’s story after Beyond the Grey Sky was completed and I actually have an idea in my head but I wanted to post the possible synopsis and get people’s opinion on it. The story would take place three years after the initial story ended and this could either be a one-shot or a short multi-chaptered story.

Reed Simms and Cami Hall have been together for three years and have a two-year old daughter, Rory. But the couple is going through a rough patch. Cami wants to get married. Reed does not. The story will explore their past and present lives together as both try to figure out whether or not they have a future as a couple.

Although it sounds like it will be angst-filled, and parts of it will be, the flashbacks of the couple’s past during the last three years and some present moments as a family will be cute and fluffy since Reed and Cami had very little of that in their debut story. Let me know if this story sounds interesting and I will try to begin working on it. I know Reed and Cami need another story since reading Beyond the Grey Sky even depressed me and I wrote it. So let me know if this is something you would like to read. Thanks!

You Call It Madness

I just posted a random one-shot I wrote: You Call it Madness, But I Call it Love and posted it on Fictionpress.com so check it out for me if you're interested. I know it's definitely not the best thing I've ever written but it was an idea that was in my head and I wanted to get it down on paper. I'm such a sucker for fluffy romance stories so read it if you want. Below, I posted pictures of the two characters: Ryan and Gemma. I might write a follow-up story but that depends on how many people read and like the initial story. Enjoy!

The Prize - Chapter 9

It's a miracle. I finally updated The Prize and just posted Chapter Nine about three seconds ago so head over to AFF.net and check it out. Please don't forget to leave your thoughts and reviews for me. I know it's been forever since an actual update but I hope people enjoy the chapter. It is focused on Amy and takes a deep sea dive into her mind and her thoughts on Tyson. Also, I posted more pictures of the lovely couple in the post below so check those out too. Thank you so much for being as patient with me as you all could be. I have the best supporters a writer could ever ask for.

Tyson and Amy Pictures

Actors Henry Cavill and Hanna Hall were part of my inspiration of the characters Tyson Reed and Amy Dunn from The Prize and I was able to just find a whole slew of new pictures of them so I wanted to post some of those, both for me and for the readers. But please remember that if you want to picture the characters in a different way, if you have envisioned them differently in your head while reading, please keep those images and just ignore the pictures. But if you do like the visual aids, then please enjoy the pictures. I am working on the ninth chapter of The Prize but no promises yet on when it will be posted. When it is, I'll let everyone know through this blog. Thank you.

Since few people seem to be interested in any new stories from me, I am trying to work on the next chapter of The Prize. I am not promising when it will be posted but I just wanted everyone to know that I am working on it. I know a lot of people love this story so I am working on continuing it for everyone who wants to read it and has been patiently waiting for a new update. I will see what this weekend brings me but I am trying to sit down and write it. Thank you. I'm glad to see that so many people have embraced Tyson and Amy's love story.

I wrote the third and fourth chapters of The Flower Girl, both currently being heavily edited but I showed my friend who immediately made more fanart for the story. It's nice to have friends who support you and who already envision the actors for when the book, which will be a bestseller she has informed me, becomes a huge blockbuster movie, which, she also said, is going to happen. So thank Lauren and enjoy the art.

Posted on AFF

I just posted the prologue to The Flower Girl on AFF.net so if you can read and review for me, I would love you to death. I really want this story to be not good, but something great - something I had never written before. And I need everyone's honest opinions so thank you ahead of time for doing this for me.

The Prologue

I have just posted the Prologue of my new story The Flower Girl on Fictionpress.com and will soon post it on AFF.net, but the website, at least for me, is being weird so I will post it as soon as I can. Please read and let me know what you think. This is very important to me since this is the rough draft of my manuscript I plan to send onto publishers. Thank you so much in advance of reading my story and I hope it is enjoyed by at least some of you.

Coming Soon

The first chapter of The Flower Girl will be posted soon and I want to thank everyone who showed an interest in that story. I'm very excited to write it and to 7 years who showed more of an interest in The End of Eden, I am also working on that first chapter so hopefully, that will be posted soon as well. My friend, Alex, told me that if I did find a publisher, I would have to remove all of my stories from websites where people could read them for free so if, hopefully, I do find a publisher, I just want to warn everyone now that my accounts on both Aff and Fictionpress will have to disappear. But until that time comes, when the first chapters of both of these stories are posted, I will let everyone know. Thanks!

The End of Eden

Thank you to those who expressed interest in The Flower Girl and reading the story when I post it. I have several other story ideas and I will be posting those as I work and figure them out. These are all stories that have been in my head for quite some time and I just need to get the ideas down so I can start working each of them out. This blog really is just a way for me to sort through all the story ideas I have running wild in my head and I appreciate every one's honest opinions about the possibly stories I can write.

Another possible story idea I have is a story called The End of Eden.

When Eden Cross is murdered by her abusive boyfriend, her younger sister, Eve Cross, refuses to let her life be over and instead, writes a magical world for Eden to live in while racing to try to find the man responsible for her sister’s death. Not all life ends after death.

It sounds a bit confusing, I know, but I also wrote the first paragraph... sort of a teaser:


The last thing Eden Rose Cross saw before she died was not what she was expecting. She had heard the stories about the white light people saw or their entire lives played at an impossibly quick speed in front of their eyes before they died. But Eden saw none of this. Instead, what she saw was him kneeling above her, his eyes staring down into hers, his face completely blank as his hands tightened around her throat. She gasped, her fingers digging into the carpet, trying desperately to move away but she couldn’t. Her head was feeling light. Her eyes were closing. She couldn’t keep them open. Her mouth was parted, gasping for desperate air, but it wasn’t nearly enough. His hands only tightened their grip around her.

The last thing Eden Rose Cross saw before she died was him killing her.

The Flower Girl Cover Art

Here is an extended summary of my story The Flower Girl and also there are two cover arts that my friend made for me after she read the rough draft of the first couple of chapters.

Molly Sheppard leads a quite existence, living in Chicago, working in a small floral shop owned by her aunt and uncle and living in the apartment on the floor above.
Late one night, while closing up, a masked man enters the flower shop demanding money.
Even after she empties the register, the man shoots Molly in the head, disappearing into the night and leaving her for dead.
But Molly lives.
With a bullet lodged inside of her brain and suffering now from chronic migraines, Molly begins to experience rather odd things – voices heard though no one around her is talking, quick flashes of visions that show people in need of help, and the mysterious man following her, hiding in the shadows, claiming that he is now her keeper.
When Molly was shot in the head, it should have been the end of her life.
Instead, it was just the beginning.

The Flower Girl

I don't even know if anyone reads this blog anymore. It would seem as if I had fallen off the face of the planet considering I haven't posted or updated a story in months. Unfortunately, there are times when my real life conflicts with my writing and it keeps me from doing something I love to do so much. I know people wish I would update The Prize or The Prettiest Thing and I have actually sat down and tried to write the next chapter for both. It is a depressing thing though when one's muse seems to have left for both of those stories. I will try to finish these stories. I was so excited when I first started writing them so I hope for everyone, myself and my readers, that I will be able to continue both.

I'm not sure what has happened to me during the last few months. All inspiration seemed to have left and I was dealing with so many other things in my life at the time. Justin has been looking for a publisher for me so maybe, someday, I will be an officially published author. That would be a dream come true for me so I'm crossing my fingers and when my life decided to slow down a bit, I began working on my manuscript. I had so many ideas for my first official novel that I didn't know which one to choose.

The manuscript I am working on at the moment is The Flower Girl and it has a short summary but I wanted something that would perhaps pull people in just by sheer curiosity.

My name is Molly.
One night, someone shot me in the head.
It should have been the end of my life.
Instead, it was just the beginning.

I have a more detailed summary along with a piece of cover art my friend made for me because she was bored and also celebrity obsessed. Upon reading the first rough chapter of the first couple of chapters, she immediately cast my characters and made covers for them. I will post those as well as the longer summary later today - if anyone is interested. I will post the first chapter of The Flower Girl on both Aff.net and Fictionpress.net to get some much needed feedback from my readers. I am eager to work on this story and hopefully, send it onto a publisher. But I need help with reading and getting opinions on it so who better to ask for that help than a community of people who have been reading my stories since the beginning? It would mean the world to me. Comment if you are interested in reading this very rough draft for me and I will post it. Thank you so much!
