But it was fun to write a book about a girl who gets the best of both worlds: The loving, off-beat mortals who raised her and the exciting vampire clan who claims her, too. In terms of another complete book, there’s nothing planned right now–although I have lots of ideas. However, even if there isn’t another published novel, I do plan to at least write a second smaller continuation on my website–another free installment, like the chapters that tell the story of Jess and Lucius’s wedding. I sit down at my computer with a cup of coffee at 9 a.m. What’s the worst piece of writing advice you’ve ever received?
I like having a way of saying “thank you” to everyone who’s supported the books. and start writing, then grab lunch and a Diet Coke at about , followed by more writing until , when my kids get off the school bus. That’s definitely my husband’s repeated suggestion that I write a book about a school/summer camp/insert-other-random-location-here that’s located above a “secret Indian burial ground.” He comes up with this plot idea about once a year. ” Meaning, in a vault I’ll never touch–unless I get a job writing for Scooby-Doo!
I couldn't get into Twilight despite my love of vampires... For this less than stellar mani, I used two polishes from Sally Hansen - Moto from the Patent Gloss line, a stunning red, and Night Fright, a black creme from the Insta Dri line.
I'm going to do this series (for as long as I can), with nail art inspired by books! I hope to be able to do this EVERY week - and I'm going to try my hardest to make this a weekly feature - there are SO many books I can utilize :) Today's book is one of my favorites!
Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey is a book I picked up at the library years ago to pass the time during the Twilight craze. I love it and its sequel :) However, my mani doesn't do it much justice hahah!
It was clear to me from the very beginning who was behind the shenanigans in the Vladescu manor, but several of the characters in this book–with the possible exception of Jessica’s best (human) friend Mindy–were blind to what was obviously going on around them. While reading this book, I couldn’t help but draw parallels to that other vampire couple. The relationship between Lucius and Jessica is very similar to the one between Edward and Bella.
No, they didn’t have some weird, creepy mutant child, but their dynamic was basically the same.
But who would go to such great and horrifying lengths to destroy Lucius and Jessica?
The answer is closer than even Jessica knows, but time is running out.Eventually, she trusts Lucius’ faith in his friend and seeks Raniero’s guidance and help in proving her husband’s innocence.Jessica is still not entirely certain of who around her is ally or enemy, but it’s becoming crystal clear that a plot is afoot to remove Lucius–and her–from their rightful places. In others, though, this sequel just didn’t live up to the first book.She was such a strong character in the first book that it was almost painful to see her weakness at the beginning of this one.* I have a leopard gecko named “Lancelot.” * I once toppled backwards out of a chair during a job interview, performing a complete somersault. * Intenselyromantic * Funny * Darklyintriguing * Inspiring (I may have made up two of those.) is written in chapters that switch perspective. If I’m going to invest my time in a book, it has to have an element of romance, even if it’s a mystery or thriller–and the higher the stakes, the better. As a kid reading The Lord of the Rings trilogy, I was most drawn to minor the romantic subplot involving the mortal Aragorn and the immortal Arwen. Somewhere out there, I must have parents who are perfect and magical!
