Hey you guys, I just want to wish you all a Happy New Year. 2012 is gone and we all made it to 2013. Hopefully we've all learned both from ourselves and others to bring growth or awareness to ourselves this new year. May your goals and wishes be fulfilled and if you've already accomplished what you want in 2012 it doesn't hurt to have another goal or perhaps aid someone in accomplishing theirs for 2013. So stay safe, be gracious, and be thankful for both the little and big things. May 2013 be your year, and my year as well. Ciao and i hope to see you soon on my blog:)
I just want to say Merry Christmas to all my readers around the world and I hope you're having a wonderful season. Take care of yourself and I hope everything goes well. Thank you for visiting my blog as always and thank you for sharing my blog and my novels with other people. It truly means alot to me:) May peace and love always be with you all. Until next time:)
Rachel is now in college, she has found love and her life as a college student is typical till someone emerged to turn it upside down. Someone is leaving clues to her past or is she just imagining it? Rachel had gone through a roller coaster of terror in the Hausefalle's house, now the terror shadows her every step in the world.
This is a hint that Fiery Trap would be available sooner than you think:) I hope you check out my blog for the release date. And of course please read book one first before reading this one to get a better understanding.
Hi, i just realized that there isn't too many novel based on thanksgiving. I don't mean a book that tackle what the holiday means or the history of it. What i mean is a story that surrounds this particular holiday. There are novels that are based on a Christmas setting or Halloween setting or even the New Year but not so much from Thanksgiving. I wonder why.
The year is soon coming to a close but so far everyone ( or mainly people i encounter) are talking about christmas's gifts for their love ones more so than the Thanksgiving holiday. So far I've been so busy with work and a little bit of time for reading. I've read a bit of The Causal Vacancy( in case you are wondering) but for now i'm taking a break from it to read another book (not to say the book isn't good, it's just that i feel like reading something that's not so gossipy or community-focused if this makes sense.)
As for "The Christmas Series: Book One" I'm sad to report that it wouldn't be available on December 2012. The reason being is I'm having a writer's block on it. I don't want to rush and release a not so planned book out. I want the plot to be really excellent and of course originality is still my number one promise. This is why i stopped giving the clue a few months ago. I really have to think things through before i start writing it again. But this doesn't mean that i haven't been writing( although not as much as i would like to). I have started the sequel to......Stained:)
Yes I'm keeping the draft of "The Christmas Series: Book One" aside for a while to start on the sequel to Zombie I AM series: Stained. I've already thought of the title of the sequel but what i have in mind might not be finalized. So far it's going smoothly but of course i'm having problems here and there however, hopefully, everything will go as well as STAINED did. I know the ending to Stained has everyone's interest into how Lin would get you-know-who. And trust me, the sequel of this book, he has an idea and it would change everything:) (can't say anymore than that, sorry:). The story is still in the draft stage.
I hope you all are having a great day as always. This year is soon over (sorry to bring that up but man aren't you surprise it's November. It feels, at times, that this year just started or maybe it's mid-season but not NOVEMBER!!!!. Time sure goes fast. Thanks for reading this far if you did and come by anytime to read more of my ranting. I love you all for that. Invite others as well:) Bye:)

I wonder who is going to be the next Rachel or the next Jenelle or the next Will ( those who've been watching big brother know those names). Or maybe someone will blow all those name away and become the new favorite of all time. I don't know how i feel about Russell's relative coming to Big Brother. I know Russell Hantz was quite the character in Survivor but i don't think that his relative would be the same as well( i.e his nephew who i thought was a better person than Russell and i thought that the way he dissed him in the finale of Survivor was cruel and uncalled for.). I just hope that Willie Hantz will be himself and not be a Russell wanna-be because there's only one Russell and that Russell should stay on Survivor. As for the rest of the cast i just have to watch the show before i decide which is my fav and which one i don't want to win the game. Thanks for checking out my blog and i hope those who haven't yet read House Trap are doing so. You can also check out Stained at amazon. Remember to read the excerpt first before deciding to pay it or not. Ciao and until next time.
Before i discuss about the new J.K. Rowling book, I just wanted to say that i saw The Hunger Game last week and thought it was great (although the ending wasn't as powerful as the book). I know i was late in watching it but i'm glad i caught it in theater. The movie is doing great at the box office and i'm so glad for this because i love to see movies based on books succeed. It makes the audience to read the books while the readers experience another medium of what they read. So i'm all for The Hunger Games beating the newcomers:) Okay enough about that l'm here to speak--or rather type what i thought about the new title of J.K. Rowling's first adult book but first here is the synosis:
When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock.
Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war.
Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils…Pagford is not what it first seems.
And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?
Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults.
Okay the first time i saw this online i was like YES we finally have a title and then i read the title and thought.......okay? that is a very unusual title for a book. I guess it reminded me of when she titled the seventh book: Deathly Hallow. No one had a clue about how this title linked up with the story. It was a strange title to end the series until i read it. The casual vacancy, i guess, is the same here. I think I have to read the book first before i would warm up to it. I'm not saying the title is terrible, rather it's okay but honestly it isn't something that would get my attention if i saw it in a library but with a name like J.K. Rowling even if she titled the book The Right Right Mr. Right, people will be still interested and be excited about it. So all in all the title wasn't an attention grabber but it wasn't out of left field like the deathly hallow was(well to me in my opinion).
I couldn't believe (again when i read the news online) that the title announcement came with a synosis so i quickly read it. And i read it again making sure i read it right the first time. My thought on this was...... it sounds good and not a potterish in any sense. I like that she isn't really giving much on the synosis and that there is drama in this little town. I have all the confident that this would be an entertaining story however i have a good feeling that it wouldn't be as captivating as book one of harry potter. And the other feeling is that the book might have a hint of personality from the Harry Potter Series seep into it. It wouldn't be a surprise if i read the book and a certain character almost sounded or behaved like Luna Lovegood or another character sounded or behaved like Bellatrix or this character is the dumbledore of the town. This wouldn't shock me in the least bit but overall i think the plot would be fresh and entertaining. I trust J.K. Rowling wouldn't disappoint( and she probably have great editiors to aid her.)
To my surprise, yet again, the release date was announced too. I was stunned they did this all in one news. When i read that it would come out this year i was more than happy about this. It has been too long since J.K. Rowling wrote another book. I think waiting a year or so wouldn't be that surprising of a news but at the same time i wouldn't be that excited about her new venture into Adult Literature. It was an excellent decision to release it this year. Now everyone is hyped about it because they don't have to wait too long to read it. So great decision to release it this year:)
Now the world is waiting for the book cover and i hope that comes out real soon too. I hope it wouldn't be lame(e.g. like showing a picture of a town with dots as people within it or something along those line). It should really grab the reader attention. So, like any other reader out there, is curious to how the book would turn out. I wonder if this book would require her to write a sequel or it's a stand alone. It just another excitment that has come across the literature world in a while (well except The Hunger Games doing well in the box office and book sells).
As alway thanks for reading my thoughts/opinions. I know you all are curious about the book (even if you might not be a book reader). I wonder if a movie version is already been planned at this moment. I bet a movie would be made( i mean The Host by Stephenie Meyer is being made despite the fact she is a popular YA author more so than an adult writer). So I wouldn't be surprise if they announced that Warner Brother has optioned or greenlight it. Okay take care and keep dropping by here when you can. Peace.
Good Bye 2011. Hope everyone lived and learned on 2011 for 2012 is a whole new year. Think positive, be positive and focus on your goals in life. Make your dream come true this year:) As far as i'm concerned everyone is blessed to make it through this year whether it was a good year or not. The future is alway bright to those that believe so. Just stay positive, have faith and work hard for 2012 to be the year of new beginning and a new you. Sorry for sounding like an informational but i believe this year, 2012, would be a great year for everyone, including me. Better than 2011. So drink up, be safe, and remember to use your days wisely instead of wasting time just dreaming. TAKE ACTION INSTEAD:) MAKE 2012 your year! Sorry for ranting but i really do hope you and your love ones have a great new year. Be blessed from here onward and keep checking out my blog anything. Bye!! ...Farewell 2011 and Hello 2012 :)
