Garrett (garrettgoodreads) Here's another mermaid book I discovered a while back. I really want to read this one! I've heard only positive reviews on it!

Sounds cool. Nobody's entered to win it yet.


message 3: by Garrett (last edited Feb 11, 2011 08:14PM) (new)

Garrett (garrettgoodreads) I entered! I hope I win! But I won't, probably. Never do. Except once, and the book was dumb. :D

Well, nobody had entered when I checked, so you might win by default :)

I won once too...and the book was kind of dumb. I think it's a conspiracy...

Ashley Knight (ashleyknight) | 98 comments A few more people have joined the giveaway - that's hopeful!


message 7: by Ashley (new)

Ashley Knight (ashleyknight) | 98 comments Over 1500 people in the giveaway so far! Wow! But it doesn't really matter anymore does it Garrett? Wink wink?


message 8: by Garrett (new)

Garrett (garrettgoodreads) I think it's great that so many people are wanting to read your book! I'm more than halfway through, and it's really good!

Oh, I liked the Facebook page for FINS, and the actress you chose as Morgan is named Taylor Momsen. I just found that out earlier when I found the same pic on a different site. :)


message 9: by Ashley (new)

Ashley Knight (ashleyknight) | 98 comments Cool! Thanks for the info - I'll check her out...

I'm quite looking forward to the book myself. I'm making a shopping purge soon.


message 11: by Ashley (new)

Ashley Knight (ashleyknight) | 98 comments Thanks Guitar Chick (love the name btw - I'm in a band called Pile of Bones that's touring in the Spring) - I hope you enjoy it!!

Aw, thank you. I write music about books and play multiple insturments. I have an album of wizard rock covers coming out at the end of the month.
:)
Hehehehehe, so different from your description. As soon as I can get a band together, I'm gonna do some normal music too, but something about singing about Romilda Vane's failed attempt at getting Harry is fun to me.


message 13: by Ashley (new)

Ashley Knight (ashleyknight) | 98 comments Ok Garret - you finished FINS yet? I wanna know what you thought!!!! :-p


message 14: by Garrett (last edited Mar 22, 2011 05:17PM) (new)

Garrett (garrettgoodreads) I saw your comment last night and realized I needed to finish! So I spent the next few hours finally finishing, and it was amazing! (Sorry I hadn't been reading, I tend to get distracted while reading and end up reading, like, a dozen books at one time! :D) But it was an awesome book! I just wish it was possible to actually live inside a book, because I definitely wanna live in Vero Beach!
Here's the link to my review! http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/...


message 15: by Ashley (new)

Ashley Knight (ashleyknight) | 98 comments Your review was more than I could ask for, Garrett - thank you so very much! Sorry - been re-editing FATHOM & living like a hermit for the past few weeks. Felt a bit feral actually!! Hah! We'll deal with that in FOREVER.... feral mermaids.... Ooooo!!!! Spoiler!!!!


message 16: by Garrett (last edited Apr 02, 2011 12:22PM) (new)

Garrett (garrettgoodreads) Awesome! I cannot wait! Yeah, re-editing probably gets a bit redundant, huh? I'm kicking around my own mermaid story in my head, two actually, but I can't get started. Sigh...being an aspiring author is no fun when you've got a raging case of writer's block. :D


message 17: by Ashley (new)

Ashley Knight (ashleyknight) | 98 comments Start with the first sentence - then another & another... One foot in front of the other..... Just start it! Get it all on paper


message 18: by Garrett (new)

Garrett (garrettgoodreads) It's so difficult! Well, probably not...maybe it'll eventually just "click." Or maybe I should outline some more. :D


message 19: by Ashley (new)

Ashley Knight (ashleyknight) | 98 comments Each writer has their own way - personally - I can't outline - I just write when it comes to me - like a tidal wave. When nothing's there, nothings there. :-) to each his own I suppose.
Start with one sentence.
"Tom stared at his swollen feet; they reminded him of those smelly sausages his grandmother used to buy him at Christmas."
Go from there.......
:-D


message 20: by Garrett (new)

Garrett (garrettgoodreads) Thanks, Ashley! That's good advice! I'm very similar to your style, I'm not good at outlining. I try to, but it depends. Sometimes the whole story unfolds and I do a rough outline, or sometimes I just write by the seat of my pants! :D


message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

Do you ever post your mermaid stories on Goodreads, Garrett???


message 22: by Ashley (new)

Ashley Knight (ashleyknight) | 98 comments Do what feels comfortable & fun - writing shouldn't be a chore! You should get lost in it! Be excited by it! Care for your characters, talk to them, experience their lives with them. Forcing yourself to put words to paper will only stilt you. Sometimes a line or idea will come to me when I'm driving & I'll use my iPhone recorder & record it! Use it later. Lots of notes saved for later!!! A few crossed out - already used...

Thanks, Ashley! You're right: writing should be fun. And it's funny: I take notes on my cell phone, too, if an idea comes to me! :)

Yep, sometimes! :) But I only post a chapter or two, since I'm not really good with sticking to one story. But I do have one story on goodreads that's fifteen chapters about Medusa's descendants, if you wanna check it out. :D

Coolio!!!!! I will!!!!


message 25: by Garrett (new)

Garrett (garrettgoodreads) Awesome! Thanks!! :D

message 34: by Ashley (new)

Ashley Knight (ashleyknight) | 98 comments HERE's A PREVIEW OF FATHOM!!! Fresh from high-school, Morgan eagerly begins her life with Thayde in New York City. Soon she discovers powers of which she could only dream, but before long these powers prove to be something she was not prepared for and she is thrown into a frightening, all-consuming tailspin. With strange forces threatening to end Thayde’s life, as well as her own, Morgan must use all her energies in her fight to survive.

Tailspin ha! You're punny.

Ashley Knight (ashleyknight) | 98 comments That was my publishers idea....

Garrett (garrettgoodreads) Ashley! I just saw the cover for Fathom, and I gotta tell you - it was AMAZING!! It's so beautiful! You're so lucky to have such an amazing cover designer!

Could you post the links here for both of those, my facebook skills are currently malfunctioning today.


message 44: by Ashley (new)

Ashley Knight (ashleyknight) | 98 comments My band won't be up & going until most likely next year - when we're perfect. But let me see if I can get the link...

Garrett (garrettgoodreads) YOU GUYS!!! I have read FATHOM, the sequel to FINS, and lovedlovedloved it! I can't share my review yet, as I have been sworn to secrecy, but I have been given permisson to neener neener neener. Seriously, I can't wait to share my review! Ashley, the wait is killing me!
