Honestly, I don't really feel like I have a strong following or that my books are successful, I guess it's all about your point of view. The best advice I could ever give anyone who is trying their LUCK (and that's a major factor) with starting a career in writing is read a lot. Read everything. Learn to better your craft. NEVER compare yourself to others. The only person to compete against is the person you were yesterday, and alway keep writing. Keep making books and listening to people talk about what they want to read. Be true to your characters and yourself. Put yourself out there and never take reviews personally, just take the critiques given and learn to write better and better. The biggest thing that writers need to realize is that there is no magic pill that will make you a best seller. It's perseverance. It's hard work. (less)

“His lips touched mine again, breathing me in like I was his air, then he tore his mouth from mine; panting. "Please Grace, whatever it is you're going after, please try to find it here in me. I will try my best to be the man that you need me to be.”
Christine Zolendz, Fall From Grace

“Grace: "I wanted to tell you how I felt. Why I was always so mean to you, Shane."

- "Because you feel broken?"

- "Completely shattered," I whispered
softly.

Bringing his hands to my face, he leaned over me, lightly stroking my cheeks with his fingertips. - "Then let me in, because I promise you, I will pick up every little broken piece of you, every single fucking piece, Grace, and for the
rest of my fucking life I will put you back together...
I'll make you whole again.”
Christine Zolendz, Saving Grace

“I glared at Shane, who gave me an innocent look. With the most serious expression I could make, I joked, “Some of my close friends have called me Black Widow, because after I sleep with someone, I kill them.”

Shane looked at me evenly, matching my serious expression, “I have no doubt in my mind that you have had that effect on men, since I feel like I’ve died every time you’ve smiled at me.”
Christine Zolendz, Fall From Grace

“Remember tonight...for it is the beginning of always," he whispered... - Shane

That damn man just ruined all other men for me. Once you tasted that man, he made all others go sour in your mouth. Ah crap, I was in love with him. - Grace”
Christine Zolendz, Saving Grace

“Grace: "I wanted to tell you how I felt. Why I was always so mean to you, Shane."

- "Because you feel broken?"

- "Completely shattered," I whispered
softly.

Bringing his hands to my face, he leaned over me, lightly stroking my cheeks with his fingertips. - "Then let me in, because I promise you, I will pick up every little broken piece of you, every single fucking piece, Grace, and for the
rest of my fucking life I will put you back together...
I'll make you whole again.”
Christine Zolendz, Saving Grace

“Shane smirked and straddled the bike
showing his back to me, end of discussion.
I was speechless anyway. I couldn't even
think right. Well...mentally he was about eight
inches deep in me and I was screaming his name
raking my nails down his back.”
Christine Zolendz, Saving Grace

“Bitch," Bliss hissed crossing her arms in front of her chest.

Lea laughed louder, "Oh, one syllable word war. You don't even need a brain to play that game! Okay, my turn! Cunt!”

message 21: by Kimy

Kimy Hi Christine!

Thanks for accepting my friend request. Your books are simply the best I've read so far, keep up the good work!

Hope there will be more books from you soon :-)


message 20: by Michel

Michel Scott Is there any chance your books will be coming out in audio format?


message 19: by Vera

Vera I can't wait till "Scars and Songs" comes out. Is it for sure to be out next month???? :D


Christine Zolendz I'm not sure if I'll be doing ARCs. I know there's been a lot of people asking me for them, and honestly, I don't really know what it's all about. Lol, I usually just write, edit and press the little publish button on Amazon. I've never even had a blog tour. I don't know what the hell I'm doing!


Christine Zolendz It's with my editor right now...so I'm hoping within the next four weeks! ;)


message 16: by Chrissy

Chrissy Morales When is Shane's POV coming out? :)


message 15: by Dianne

Dianne Thanks for being my friend! I absolutely adored the Mad World Series. I can't wait to read Shane's POV in Scars and Songs!


Christine Zolendz I don't know exactly when Scars and Songs will be ready (Shane's POV) my family and I are still rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy so I haven't had a lot of time to write!


message 13: by ZeniaRA

ZeniaRA Hi, Christine.
When can we be expecting Shane's book? I'm dying to read that. :)


message 12: by Sharyn

Sharyn Fall from Grace done, now just need to read Saving Grace. Awesome books. Thank you so much for writing them!


message 11: by Robin

Robin So glad to hear you and your family are ok after Hurricane Sandy! Donated to help out through FB. LOVE you and your books. :)


Christine Zolendz Great question. It's just one of those sounds someone makes when they are blowing air out of their mouth. It's kind of like the noise you make when you are arguing with someone and you're saying 'yeah right, whatever"


Onnica Hi Christine,

Loved the books - as frustrating as they were!! One question: what exactly does psf mean? I searched Google, and it came back with Porn star finish...I'm no good with acronyms!


message 8: by Kim

Kim Person Thanks for the add! I loved Grace & Shane's story!! Hope to see more from you!!


Elaina Hi Christine,

Thanks so much for the add. I just loved Fall from Grace. I literally could not put it down. I am about to start Saving Grace now and can't wait to read more of your work. :)

Jaymie Thanks for accepting my friend request. I loved both Fall From Grace (Mad World, #1) by Christine Zolendz and Saving Grace (Mad World, #2) by Christine Zolendz . I spent the past 24 hour devouring both books.


Christine Zolendz I did the freebie thing just to thank all my readers for being so supportive and encouraging when I was writing Saving Grace. I hope you enjoy the rest of it!


Jennifer☠Pher☠ Thank you for accepting! I am 76% in and honestly wonder why you gave me Fall From Grace (Mad World, #1) by Christine Zolendz for free??? This is an amazing book!! I am soooo pimping this out!!!


Chrystal Thank You for adding me! I am OBSESSED with this series!
