I'm Back

Dear Loyal Readers,

                               I apologize for my absence and my inactivity on this blog. I really enjoy blogging and it's not something I intend to stop doing. Recently, I have just adjusted to the dramatic change from high school to college after my graduation. In addition I did a bit of travelling over summer and to be quite honest, I am still stuck in the past. It's been really hard trying to get out of this rut I am stuck in.....


................................especially since I got my heart broken.
You know what they say, it was better to have love than to not love at all. But I am not gong to lie to you guys, it hurts like hell and I feel like shit. Like I lost my way. Secretly, I hope it fuels my passion for writing. But, sadly it has me up a night, losing sleep and I can't read or eat. And if you know anything about me those are very important things to me. I mean if I leave sleep or food to talk to you best believe, you are very important in my …

The Last of the FireDrakes Author Interview

Interview with Farah Oomerbhoy

Questions:
1. Were you good at English, in school? And when did you decide to become a writer?
I did enjoy studying English in school. In fact I loved reading, researching, and studying English so much that I went on to do my Master’s degree in English Literature.





2. Where do the your ideas come from?
Everywhere! Anything can spark the promise of a great story or character. But most of all I enjoy creating fantasy worlds and exploring them through my stories.
But for this particular book and series, it all started nearly ten years ago, with a tapestry in my grandmother’s house. One day I stood before it and wondered, what if I could step into the tapestry? Where would I end up? And so the world of Avalonia sprang into existence.
From then on, the person who stepped into the tapestry was a young 16-year-old girl who didn’t know who she really was, her name was Aurora, and this is her story.

3. Do you prefer ebooks, paperbacks or hardcover?
Nothing can replace t…

Summary: Fifteen-year-old Polarity Weeks just wants to live a normal life, but with a mother diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, that’s rarely easy. Her life gets exponentially more disastrous when her sixth-period history classmates start ogling a nude picture of her on the Internet.

Child Protective Services yanks her from her home, suspecting her parents. The kids at school mock her, assuming she took it herself. And Ethan, the boy she was really starting to like, backpedals and joins the taunting chorus.

Published by: Swoon Romance Publication date: October 27th 2015 Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult
Summary: The last thing sixteen-year-old Emily Slovkowski wants is to move away from her home at the Jersey shore, gorgeous surfer boyfriend Zach, and her entire identity. But that’s kind of how Witness Protection works, and Em must prepare herself for an epic do-over as she starts a new life in the Midwest.
Even as she pines for sandy beaches and the night life of the shore, the newly-named Ember O’Malley finds herself making new friends, taking photos for the high school newspaper, and thinking an awful lot about the paper’s editor, an oddly cute cowboy named Charles. When Em stumbles upon a shady beneath-the-bleachers exchange between one of the school’s football coaches and a student, she refuses to get involved. The last thing she needs is to be witness to another crime or call attention to herself. Besides, she finally has some real friends – well, …

Touching Fate by Brenda Drake Release Date: 10/13/15 Entangled Teen: Crave




Summary from Goodreads: 
Aster Layne believes in physics, not psychics. A tarot card reading on the Ocean City Boardwalk should have been a ridiculous, just-for-fun thing. It wasn't. Aster discovers she has a veryunscientific gift—with a simple touch of the cards, she can change a person's fate.
Reese Van Buren is cursed. Like the kind of old-school, centuries-old curse that runs in royal families. Every firstborn son is doomed to die on his eighteenth birthday—and Reese's is coming up fast. Bummer. He tries to distract himself from his inevitable death...only to find the one person who can save him.
Aster doesn't know that the hot Dutch guy she's just met needs her help–or that he’s about to die.
But worst of all…she doesn't know that her new gift comes with dark, dark consequences that can harm everyone she loves.
