Anything Goes Friday

Been a while since I posted on a Friday. I just couldn't wait any longer. There is a little project I am dabbling with here and there. Nothing serious (yet) but I am loving the characters and it is something very new for me.

Genre: New Adult Paranormal

I have been working on a NA and the Nether books are paranormal, but I haven't pushed the two together before. It's dark. Really dark, murderous and seductive. Let me just put it this way. Vampires don't sparkle. No seriously they don't. Sorry to burst that bubble for you. Back in 2000 I started working on a vampire series. It slowly slipped to the back burner with other projects and I wanted to give this whole vampire craze time to...readjust. I pick with it here and there but today someone mentioned something in a conversation and the light bulb flicked back on. This time it was really bright. Brighter than before. See, about six years ago I got stuck with this story. Stuck and frustrated because all that Twilight stuff that made my blood boil.

Until today.

My vampires are murderous and hungry creatures. They don't hunt animals. They don't sparkle. They are evil and yes there are some who have a small conscious, but they are very few and far between. They don't fall in love with emo stricken expressionless teenage girls and they sure as heck don't fight for the greater good of mankind.

Blood drives them, human blood. There is nothing pretty about it.  

I will make the world fear vampires again and at the same time fall in love with them for all the right reasons. You can't love something without a little bit of hate. These are my characters. You'll love and hate them and in the end hopefully you'll be starving for more.

Here are the two main characters:

I have wanted to write with the inspiration of my MC's being Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Natalie Dormer for years. And this revamped vamp story is perfect. It takes place in the present and the past and these two are so inspiring. Heck, they're gorgeous.

Gorgeous and by the looks of that picture...deadly.

*insert evil laugh here*

And here are the two main theme songs for this little diddy:

Garbage - I Would Die For You
Romeo and Juliet Soundtrack

Lana Delrey - Young & Beautiful
Great Gatsby Soundtrack

Oh and the title to this steamy read: The Soulless

Have a great weekend everyone

  1. SUPER excited about the new project. Jonathan and Natalie are excellent vampire candidates. Much better than... Well. Let's not sling too much mud, shall we? Awesome song choices, as well; especially the Garbage hit from Romeo & Juliet. Still crank it up whenever I hear it.

Birthday Bliss

I turned thirty seven this past weekend (cringe), but I had a blast doing it!

My husband and daughter made me cards (I prefer these versus bought cards). I love that they take the time to make a card each year, it makes me feel extra special. Although, this year kiddo's car was a "flat card", her words. She didn't want to fold the artwork. I totally get you, mini me.

Saturday I had a kid free day with a friend and we spent hours laughing and thrift shopping. I found some great treasures and even a pair of bright flowery running shorts. I will take a picture of said shorts as they embarrassed my friend and she vowed NOT to be seen running with me at our next race if I wore them. I took that as a compliment and a challenge. =P Later that night hubby and kiddo took me to dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant (they aren't open on Sundays).

Sunday I finally checked out one of those bar/painting shops. Five girlfriends and I drank, laughed, painted and had a great tim…

Help, My Cat is Pooping Outside the Litter Box!

This is Princess Leia. Lately, little miss Leia has had a bit of an issue. She's been pooping outside of the litter boxes. See? Even a cat behaviorist can have cats with issues. Luckily, Leia's problem was quickly and easily diagnosed. My Bengal, Loki, had been bullying her away from the litter boxes. We set up a nice little box for her in a quiet area of the house and she hasn't had any issues since. I really think she is enjoying the fact she gets her own powder room. But, there can be many reasons a kitty starts this type of behavior so I am going to go over the most common ones below.

Here are some of the basic reasons:

1. A recent litter brand change.
Cats are huge creatures of habit and often finicky when it comes to their poop dirt. If you recently changed their litter try going back to the old stuff.   2. The litter isn't deep enough.
Some cats love a lot of litter and are big diggers. If they don't have enough litter (an amount to their liking, not yours) k…

Cats & Vaccines

This gorgeous boy had to get some vaccines yesterday. I keep all of my furbabies up to date with their vaccinations and you should too. My kitties rarely ever go outside, but I still get them all their shots just in case. You never know. I once had one of my indoor only kitties get let out by an old roommate. The cat was missing for three long weeks. I was in agony not knowing where my baby was or what could be happening to him. Lucky for me, he showed back up but not without some very serious injuries. I never vaccinated him for outdoor stuff because, he was only indoor. Well, many years later I lost him to Feline Leukemia. The only time he could have contracted it was during the time he was lost. I was devastated. He could have lived a much longer life and I learned a very hard and valuable lesson.

That being said, Loki is normally a very active and spazy cat. Call it a Bengal thing. However, after three vaccines yesterday I could tell this morning he was feeling a bit blah and ten…
