It's that time again. When we as writers express our doubts and concerns, share our experiences and encourage others.
Besides our awesome IW support group, I'd like to talk briefly about family support. My family is great and completely support my writing, of course, most of them don't support it enough to actually read it. Grin. I periodically collar the hh, who is an English Instructor and writes poetry. When he does make a suggestion on a manuscript I've written it's usually spot on and something I've totally overlooked. My sister picks up nearly everything that comes out on Kindle and shoots for being the first purchaser and is tied for first place with the hh in leading the rah rah support section. I couldn't do without them. But the family member whose support blows me away is my eighty-seven year old uncle who reads everything that comes out in paper. Romance, fantasy, historical, it doesn't matter, he reads it. Is that not the coolest thing?
And speaking of come outs, i.e. releases, Vampire Island has been re-released.
I really like my cover. I purchased it from The Cover Collection
. The price was fair, but my math skills have never been my strong suit and you know those math questions about buying two dozen loaves of bread for twenty some people, etc, etc? Well, I obviously failed because when I had to factor in the pounds versus dollars, I thought I was saving thirty dollars when I was actually paying an extra thirty. grin.
My name is Zoe Tempest. Just let me say, I had no intention of becoming a
vampire hunter. My world revolved around the trendiest clothes, the boy
of the week, shopping, and texting.
I always tried to play down the fact that I’m really quite
intelligent. I’d much rather be considered blonde and clueless. It’s so
much easier to get dates.
My parents were well-off and indulgent. I was the center of their universe. I’m afraid I took that for granted.
One odd thing, my mother insisted I take self-defense training. I
just figured she wanted to keep her little princess safe. But looking
back, perhaps she had a premonition.
To my surprise, I took to it like a kid to Pop Tarts and ended up with a black belt in karate.
My life was as close to perfect as a seventeen year old can get. I
had everything. Then my parents were murdered and my world came crashing
After their funeral, I went to live with my uncle Julian Kilmer.
That’s when everything changed. In a manner more terrifying than
anything I could have imagined.
