My New "Kindle"!

Hi all!

I got my Kindle in the mail this week!  I am more than excited!  I've been putting it off, claiming that I love the feel of a book in my hand and the smell of the printed pages, but I can read this outside in the sunlight without worrying about the wind blowing the pages or pain in my hands from holding the book open if it has a lot of pages.  It also weighs a lot less than a book.  I already have a list of books that I want to read! :)

I've decided that I really need to get going on editing a novel that I finished writing over a year ago, "To Love Without Hope".  I finished writing it in May of 2010, but I haven't spent a lot of time editing it yet.  I submitted it to the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest, but I didn't even have it fully edited.  When someone made a comment that it seemed a little rough, it was.  That was my own mistake.  You can click on one of the page tabs above to read about the synopsis of "To Love Without Hope".  It's my goal to have it edited by July 15th, the day that "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" comes out in theaters! 

So...
GOAL for July 15th:  Finish editing of    "To Love Without Hope"

If anyone would be interested in reading parts of it to tell me your opinion on the characters or plot, please let me know! :)

Sincerely,
Krista M

  3. My email is christinenicolemurray at gmail.com. I'm hoping breaking it up like that will protect it from the dreaded spam-bots.

  4. I finished it! Really enjoyed it. Oh, by the way, I can spell. Hiberno-English (Irish-English) has different spelling conventions than American-English. I just realised you may think my email was written by someone who can't use spellcheck!
