Nenia Campbell was born and raised in the United States. From infancy, she was fond of books- especially the cardboard ones; they were the most delicious. As she grew older, she learned that 'devouring a book' was a phrase not to be taken literally. As a result, she became a very enthusiastic reader. When she discovered that the stories she wanted to read did not exist she became an enthusiastic writer, as well.

She hopes that you have a lovely day.

As a kid, if I hated a book, I would rewrite the ending or offending scene to my liking. (I am such a dork, I know.) Then I realized that I could write original books of my own. Mind = blown!

Toni Morison has a great quote that explains on this:

'If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.'(less)

“Happiness is such a fragile thing, isn't it? So easily burst, like a bubble blown by a child, and always on the verge of being carried away.”
Nenia Campbell, Endgame

“The villains were always ugly in books and movies. Necessarily so, it seemed. Because if they were attractive—if their looks matched their charm and their cunning—they wouldn't only be dangerous.

They would be irresistible.”
Nenia Campbell, Horrorscape

I know what it is to want something that could destroy you.

“Anyone who thinks sitting in church can make you a Christian must also think that sitting in a garage can make you a car.”
Garrison Keillor

“Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.”
Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time

“Your name is a golden bell hung in my heart. I would break my body to pieces to call you once by your name.”
Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

“Oh well... I'd just been thinking, if you had died, you'd have been welcome to share my toilet.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

“It starts so young, and I'm angry about that. The garbage we're taught. About love, about what's "romantic." Look at so many of the so-called romantic figures in books and movies. Do we ever stop and think how many of them would cause serious and drastic unhappiness after The End? Why are sick and dangerous personality types so often shown a passionate and tragic and something to be longed for when those are the very ones you should run for your life from? Think about it. Heathcliff. Romeo. Don Juan. Jay Gatsby. Rochester. Mr. Darcy. From the rigid control freak in The Sound of Music to all the bad boys some woman goes running to the airport to catch in the last minute of every romantic comedy. She should let him leave. Your time is so valuable, and look at these guys--depressive and moody and violent and immature and self-centered. And what about the big daddy of them all, Prince Charming? What was his secret life? We dont know anything about him, other then he looks good and comes to the rescue.”
Deb Caletti, The Secret Life of Prince Charming

Heather *Thermonuclear Bomb of Death* Thank yooouuuu!!!! I'm trying to get it back in shape from the bleaching, but I love it!

Interestingly, only women have complimented me on my hair so far, and men have been the ones to say something "clever" about it. -__-

message 751: by Rachel

Rachel E. Carter Thank you for accepting, Nenia <3 You are absolutely welcome, you already know everyone on GR loves you, I'm just happy to be on the "awesome people list." *grins* I see a lot of kitten GIF's being posted on your wall so had to add to the masses:

message 749: by Aly∞


AHEM. I mean: Hey girl. How you doin'?

✘✘ Sarah ✘✘ You know, I think it takes real guts to be an author on GR, write honest reviews and interact with your readers. I wouldn't be able to do it. It's probably great to have direct contact with your readers but it must also be hard to read negative/critical reviews for your books.

My OCD spreadsheet, my baby. Haha. I got into some kind of BR frenzy this year and this spreadsheet has been the key to my sanity;) I've heard great things about The Fold but I've heard scary things as well. Some of my friends thought it was one the most boring books ever. Then again I usually love books my friends hate so there's hope yet^^

Shattered Dreams is actually pretty hard to find but I think I might have a solution so you can suffer along with us.

✘✘ Sarah ✘✘ Definitely part of the cool kids haha!

So you think 3.06 is a grim average? Mine is 3.05 and I thought it was pretty good. I mean, it used to something like 2.65 last year so I'm definitely improving!;)

If you're feeling *really* adventurous and are not afraid to read one of the crappiest books ever written, you could join Karly, Tadiana and me for our Shattered Dreams BR at the end of the month. It's supposed to be even worse than Who's Holding the Baby? haha.

I will be doing less BRs in the coming months because summer is very busy for me at work but you can have a look at my OCD spreadsheet to see what's coming up next:) Let me know if you want to tag along on any of the BRs mentioned here!

✘✘ Sarah ✘✘ YAY, thanks for accepting! *does a happy dance while adding Nenia to her top friends list*

I'd love to do a BR with you but are you sure you want to take the risk? I have a stellar 1-star rating/DNF track record so far this year haha.

message 745: by Aly∞

Aly∞ I'm still planning on going, but I'm not working at the moment so it's ten times harder to get the money together.

But I'm starting a volunteering job at a book shop on Tuesday! I'm pretty excited for it because he said I can have free books ^^

Shelby *wants some flying monkeys* You are probably going to get slammed with these :)

Sarah Marie Haha Yep we were friends, but I think I clicked on the follow button and it must have unfriended us. I wasn't here when it was immediately updated and just started clicking. I believe I accidentally unfriended you for about five seconds before I realized unfollowing you meant I wouldn't see you as a friend. I'm not a big fan of this update.

message 721: by Aly∞

message 709: by Nichole

Nichole I know you'll find the time eventually *hugs* Take as much time as you need and don't push it if it's not the right time. I hope the job thing has been helping too I hope no one has been jumping down your throat now that you have one. Just remember patience is a virtue (even if you have to fake it for a little while) :P

Not much going on with me, I guess. I mean by the end of the year I will have a (used) car and house paid off but it still feels like it's a bajillion years away from happening. Also, I have to gut my house and remodel it, all of the pipes decided to burst during our first freeze. My hubby's not excited about it xD

pretty much grown up stuff... why do I have to be a grown up? :P

I also decided not to push myself as hard as I did last year with my book challenge. I've set it to 30 (i think) and I'm taking time to socialize this year... which will be weird because I'm so introverted

aaaand I'm babbling... I'll shut up... for now...

how's the kittehs? do you still have them?

message 708: by Nichole

Nichole Ermagherd, I did the hermit thing and haven't gotten around to talking to anyone on here.

You were the first person I thought of to talk to ^_^
So how are you doing and stuffs? Just wanted to pop in and say hi *stares at shoes*

Heather *Thermonuclear Bomb of Death* NENIA!!!

It's been a while. I'm just saying hi. :D

Kiwi Reads (The YA Chronicler Book Blog) Lol no problem! It is literally so awesome. Like you have the most books I've EVER seen any GR reader have. Especially an author! Gah I am literally fangirling

Shelby *wants some flying monkeys* I love seeing your face pop up in my feed. I've missed you!
