The horrid commute gives me plenty of time to zone out and think about my characters in full, brilliant details (I’m a safe driver; don’t worry).

I usually reserve this blog for happy, upbeat posts, and for the most part this one will be, but sometimes you just have to complain. And dammit, this person makes me want to SCREAM. So, without using diagrams and maps and charts, I will try to explain this the best way I can.

Krystal Wade It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to. Cry if I want to. Cry if I want to. You would cry too if it (getting older) happened to you. I'm 28 again. I've lost track of how many times I've turned 28. :-)

I am writing a new series, The Book of Red series. My agent is currently shopping it around. I'm also working furiously on a horror/thriller, should be complete soon. And a scifi. Nothing releasing right now, but I'll probably have several in the near future.

Yea I read in spurts, it's one of my many revolving hobbies :)

How is your book going? I've often thought about doing that too.
