I really appreciate the intensity and addictiveness you give your books, but not when it's 11:30 pm and I have other things I should be doing. Like sleeping.

I think we cry to release the animal parts of us without losing our humanity. Because inside me is a beast that snarls, and growls, and strains toward freedom, toward Tobias, and above all, toward life. And as hard as I try, I cannot kill it. So I sob into my hands instead."

HanaJoyful I will be seventeen ;D
But was the ending that sad? I'm scared now, maybe I'll just wait for the paperback...


Hayden The ending wasn't sad. I'm just sad I have to wait a whole ever-loving YEAR to get my next Roth fix.

I hope she makes another series after this, just as awesome *crosses fingers*.
BTW, I loved your story, it was really good. And really different too, I hope you write more :)


Hayden Thank you! :) I'm actually working on a PN(R) right now, lol. The reason the R is in parentheses is because it's not a main focus at all. I made a vow when I started writing paranormal that the romance would be minimal and not gag-worthy.

I tend to hop across and get a taste of each genre. Post-apocalyptic is one of my recent favorites, as is PN(R).

I actually enjoy writing too, I work long and hard on my idea's, for weeks. But by the time I start writing it's so late and I just end up writing mindlessly and I'll end up with a pile of WTF?

How far are you into your PNR?

HAHA! I know exactly what you're talking about with the WTF? pile. That happens to me as well.

Only about 6k, honestly. Which is actually more than my other one, lol, but it's only two chapters. In my P-A, I wrote in short chapters because, for one, the narrators are changing, but I like to keep that sense of immediacy and fast pace. With my PNR, it's one narrator and it doesn't need to be quick-paced immediately, so I write the chapters much longer.

Another problem I have it I rush to much, I don't take time to really gather surroundings and etc. I just want to get to the point!

What kind of myth. did you incorporate into it?


Hayden Yeah! That's something I've been fixing with this draft. That's one of my problems as well. I used to write like every scene was a climax, with no detail, just dialogue and action. But that's not so good during an exposition lol.

It's my own mythology, really: I created a new type of supernatural being that protected an alternate dimension. Sounds really weird, but it makes sense in my head hahah

No no, that actually sounds really interesting. I'll be looking forward to reading it :)


Hayden Yay! :) I'll probably post a bit on here sometime.


Meaghan R. (YA-aholic) just started it a few days ago....i got the CE that was released on the 30th...not very far along...i practucally only have time for work and sleep right now, but i'm slowly getting there...


Hayden I get what you mean about only having time for work and sleep. I'm the same with school. 5 AP classes wasn't a smart decision on my behalf when it comes to reading . . .


Catie I agree!!
