English is not my first language and my grammar is, without the
supervision of my beloved and very adored editor, horrible; the fact that
I'm sloppy by nature doesn't help, so, even though I use editors/betas
for my stories, I don't intend to do that for my Little Thoughts. That
means that if you intend to read this blog, don't expect perfect grammar
and be prepared to stumble over some stupid mistakes. I'll try my best,
but unfortunately commas, tenses and all those similar-sounding words
like to play tricks on me.
Yey, finally, here it is my
paranormal romance with ghosts. For the first three months is only going
to be available via Amazon. For five day (until Friday, the fifth of July), it's going to be available
(The cover is made by Elaina
Lee. She also made The 13th: Ineluctable Fate one.)
With the help of friends and KB member. I got two summaries:
Summary 1: Kate, the school
outcast, has always been able to see ghosts, and she constantly fears that
someday, her so-called 'gift' will drive her mad like it did her mother, who
has now been confined to a mental asylum. But when Ethan, the hot transfer
student, tells her that she's a Soul Reaper and offers to train her, she thinks
he's the crazy one. However, Kate soon realises that being a Soul Reaper
isn't exactly a choice, and more importantly, maybe becoming a Soul Reaper
will help her to find the answers she needs to save her sanity.
Summary 2: Kate, the school
outcast, has always been able to see ghosts. She lives in fear that someday,
her ‘gift’ might push her over the edge like it did her mother, who
had attacked Kate in a fit of supernatural terror and now lives in a
mental asylum. With the ever-present ghosts, her institutionalised mother,
the unwanted attention from a bully and everything else going on in a teenage
girl’s life, all Kate wants is to graduate quickly and without troubles. But
that becomes impossible when Ethan, a gorgeous new transfer student, takes an
interest in her, claiming that she is the Soul Reaper, and that he is there to
train her. Things get even worse when her nemesis, the school bully Sandra,
decides that she wants Ethan for herself.
Then, when I couldn’t
decided which one two use, I used first part of the first one and the last part
of the second one.

This story was inspired by anime Yamato Nadeshiko shichi Henge Takano aka The Wallflower. I like that anime a lot. I like the drama, too, but not as much as anime.
I uploaded another short story on Smashwords
and Amazon US
Precocious is a 13,000 words long fantasy about fairies and it uses Cinderella story as a guideline.
Summary: In the world of fairies, seventeen-year-old Rue's days
consist of farming, cleaning, selling her crops at the local market or in the
human world above, while her stepmother and stepsister attend dances, parties
and any society event her stepmother manages to get invited to. Rue never cared
for dances and never wished to go to one until Andrew, one of the Prince's
friends, invites her to a ball that Rue's stepmother doesn't want her to

the beginning, this story was titled Precarious and was suppose to be
happening in the backstage of a concert tour, but since I haven't found
enough of information about concert's backstage to get a feel
of the backstage surroundings and dynamic, I used the characters for
this fairytale. The title Precarious defined one of the characteristic
of the roadie Rue, but because the fairy story called for a different
character arch and conclusion, Rue in this story isn'tt clumsy. So
replaced Precarious with Precocious, which I believe identifies the
fairy Rue much better.
Precocious an adjective with two meanings:
1. Manifesting or characterized by unusually early development or maturity, especially in mental aptitude.
2. Botany Blossoming before the appearance of leaves.
I have just uploaded another short story on Smashwords and Amazon US, UK, DE.
The 13th: Ineluctable Fate is a (15,000 words long) paranormal romance. It part of The 13th series and it's set in Victorian London (160 years before The 13th: Destiny Awaits).
I love the cover, it was custom made by Elaina Lee
who made such a great job.
Summary: As the Awakener, Ashton Godwill eased ghosts’ passage into the other world and obliterated Soul Eaters – ghosts who have lost their auras and feed on the spirit energy of others. When the number of Soul Easters suddenly increases, Ashton’s guardian employs the help of the Reaper. Unfortunately, the Reaper is the boy who broke Ashton’s heart, the boy Ashton would rather never see again.

These five stories have three different sources of inspiration.
has been inspired by the movie Sucker Punch or I
should say that I have been watching that movie when I got the idea for
the Heart Strings. Lost
has been inspired by the Coheed and Cambria's song Deranged (great song). I was brainstorming for For your
since I wanted to have a short story with The13th:
Desinty Awaits's side characters (still working on the main story). And I
dreamt about the This Feeling
and Together Forever
not exactly dreamt the whole story, just parts of it and then worked
out the rest in my dozing time, you know, just before you have to get
up. I noticed that my mind works the best in the time when I'm just half
awake. Or in the evenings when I lay in bed waiting for sleep.
I get a lot ideas in my dreams. Just today I dreamt about a large hall
with plants creeping along its pink marble walls and the group of women,
girls, that tried to speed the growth of the plants with magic, since
they needed it for the healing of the planet or something similar. And
there was a girl with more magic then the rest, who was very upset when
she learned that the man (he was really yummy) has sold those plants
instead of giving them away for free.I don't know if I'm ever going to
expand this image, but it could become an interesting story.
Hegira, a short (11,000 words long) fantasy romance is now available on: Amazon Kindle US
, Amazon Kindle UK
and Amazon Kindle DE.
I decided to try the Amazon's Selects that's why it won't be available on Smashwords and its retailers for quite a while (3 months).
Well, anyway, here is a summary of the story that is happening in Victorian London (despite that it isn't specially specified in the story, but I did used the customs of that time):
Amanda believed she was alone in the world, afraid of never being able
to escape her uncle's greedy clutches, especially after he betrothed her
to a complete stranger. But then three men burst into the house,
interrupting the wedding, and take her away. The intruders call
themselves Elementals, and she begins to rediscover her forgotten
connection to them.

I have already shown the covers for this short story, but because I love it so much, I'm sharing it again. It's so gorgeous.
I made some changes on the web page. I removed Little Thoughts and started a blog under that name
. The link to it is on the left side of the page. This page is now only going to be used for notification about releases.
I have also made a New Release Mailing List
, which is also on the left side of the page just above the link to the blog. So, for everybody who wants to be notified about my book's releases, about when I upload them to Amazon and Smashwords , thatis the link to click.
One of the reasons why I made it is that Silver Moon's Reflection release is probably (70% probability) going to be moved to June. I guess I miscalculated again despite that I have given myself one month more than I had spent on the Blue Moon's Reflection. I could always fast forward everything, but I want to have it in the best shape that I can have it. I believe that if I'm doing something I should do to the best of my abilities, be the best that I can be. What's the point of doing something if you are only doing it half heartedly, right? Reposted under Little Thought.
Since Silver Moon's Reflection is finished and in first stages of editing, so I started to write Destiny Awaits. Since I also do covers for my books I also started to work on Destiny Awaits cover. This is its second version:
I like it, but my friend said that it's childish looking, which I agree. So I'm going to change the ornaments (I just bought 660 Typographic Ornaments
Dover - awesome clip-art book), dress the girl and add a tree or branches to the background. So with this in mind I had my camera with me on my usual walk with my aunt and her dog. I took some pictures not just of trees but also of landscape and I'm sharing them:
And this is the dog, Siva. She's such a naughty thing who adores me; all those treats that she got did the trick.
And since I'm already at pets, here's the picture of my cat. She sure likes boxes. If I don't want for her to claim a box I have to hide it from her.
Hope you are having a good week.

I'm Just watching the
movie King Kong that's aired on my local TV, and I just remembered
that a while ago when I was at my friends place and we were whining
that there's no good movies on the TV lately (at least not any new
ones), she mentioned it.
is a big, big animal lover. We were still in high school, going into
the store,when she noticed a stray dog. She went to the store and
with her lunch money bought a dog sausage, and when
the dog ate that one, she went and bought another one. That's
how she was and that's how she will always be.
anyway, she started to grumble over the movie, complaining over its
end, about how barbarically they killed gorilla. She said the movie
itself was okay, but the end sucked and that they should change it.
without the last scene, which is actually a masterpiece by itself (I
was really surprised that she didn't see the original and that remake
of King Kong was something new for her), would it work? And would the
movie (the original) become a classic and stay in people memories
without that scene?
