Coming soon!

There's still one more week until the Something Wicked Blogfest, hosted by me (Krista McLaughlin) and Krista Wayment - We are Krista Squared! It's going to be super fun and Halloween themed!

Hosts: Krista McLaughlin
           Krista Wayment

When: October 29th, 2014

Who: You, of course, and the villain of your choice.

What: The "Something Wicked" Blogfest is in honor of Halloween and the release of Krista W.'s new book in her Trusted series. Krista and I are name twins, who ironically published books at the same time, both with a character named Lainey. Sometimes I wonder if I share part of her brain... We both thought it would be fun to share about villains!

The rules are very simple - you have 400 words or less to write about a real villain, one you created in a novel, or write a flash fiction. Your villain doesn't have to be necessarily a murderer or stalker, but any anti-hero in your writing will work just fine!

Please sign up - there's some awesome prizes!

Character Inspiration, Matt
I'm going to be sharing an extra scene I wrote from my novel, "Silent Beauty" and with my villain, Matt Smith and my MC's love interest, Jared Astin. Matt's more of a bully than a villain, but he's very intimidating. It won't be included in the actual book, but it was fun to write a little scene from him! Or well, it was evil to write... muahahahahaha!

Please join Krista and I in our fun Halloween themed fun and celebration of her new book coming out!

In other news, I started a new job on Sunday and until next Thursday (when my two weeks are up at the old job), I will be working 3 jobs. It is crazy busy, but I'm excited to work at the new job! Still retail, but there's no fitting rooms and I love the atmosphere. It's much more positive.

I'm volunteering at a children's Halloween party on Saturday and working 2 of my 3 jobs, so I'll be pretty busy! Have a great weekend and make sure to sign up for our blogfest!
