Thought of the moment....

No matter how hard you try, you will NEVER control anyone else's attitudes, actions, or outcomes. The only person that you have the ability to directly impact is you, and it is your responsibility to learn how to do just utilize the knowledge, skills, and abilities you have been given to impact the world in the most positive way that you can EVERY chance you get!

Vampyre Kisses anyone?

Anyone interested please go to her blog
Here is from her blog:
I hope everyone is having a good week and ready for the holidays. So I have a new plan for Vampyre Kisses that I want to try out. I may not start doing this fully until next year when I get back from vacation but I want to see if there is any interest.

What I am thinking of doing is getting 100 bloggers to read my book Vampyre Kisses and do a review. The review should be listed on their website, goodreads, shelfari, amazon, and smashwords. I know its several different sites but all you got to do is copy and paste. :D

Now, I know bloggers that do book reviews are normally very busy. So I am trying to think of something I can offer you (beside the free eBook of Vampyre Kisses). Oh BTW even if you don’t have an eReader you can still read the book in PDF form on your computer. So no worries there! But BESIDES that, I am thinking that the reviewers could choose a couple different things. You could do a guest post on my blog to get more followers at your own website. I could list your link on my blog roll or if you have a banner I can create a page and have your banner there as a wbesite I “support”. I could send you a free sticker and/or bookmark. OR! I could send you some free short stories I wrote. :)

If you can think of something that would be a better trade let me know. Or if you think I don’t need to bother trading thats kewl too. I am not trying to bribe anyone to give me a good review. Just want to make it worth your wild.

But if you are interested in doing this PLEASE let me know! I need more reviews.

Happy Reading!

<3′s and Fangs,
Liz ^_^

Where have you been?

I hope that some of you have missed me a little and wondered where I have been. Well, I have been busy with Christmas and my Help for the Holidays Program that I do for my community. I work in child welfare...for those who didn't know. So I help sponsor our kids in placement (foster, relative or residential) and also let some of our not so fortunate families within the community sign up.

I find sponsors for these families and children so that they can get a wonderful Christmas. It is very time consuming trying to coordinate families and sponsors. Sometimes the sponsors want to remain anonymous so I have to have them drop gifts off to me and then I have to get them to the right families.

This year I also had an auction house involved and they held a couple of auctions and were able to get us some really awesome donations that we were able to get out to our families and children. They also got us extra wrapping paper so that we could let the parents wrap the presents.

It is crazy hecktic and a lot of fun. But it keeps me tied up most of the time for the month. I have also been trying to edit and have had some other personal issues at home that have kept me away. But with that being said... I don't know when I will get the opportunity to post again so Please everyone have a safe and wonderful Holiday.

Best wishes and Merry Christmas...I hope you all get those goodies that were on your list from Santa. Big hugs to everyone. Be safe this holiday season.

Crutch pt 8

I know this is long over due and I apologize. There have been a chain of events in my life that have me really busy and have me neglecting the internet. I am really sorry for letting anyone down or leaving you hanging. So without further ado here is a new snippet post.

 When her eyes opened she knew that one was partially swollen, restricting her vision.
     “How stupid do you think I am Tess? Do you think I’m just going to let you walk out of here with all my money?”
     He walked back over to her and straddled her limp body. Her mind was still searching for a way out of this mess. Aaron crouched down on her chest pinning her arms under the weight of his knees.
     “You know, I was thinking Tess. You know what I was thinking about?” He raised his brows. Tess could feel the glass digging into her back and arms with his weight. She looked around; panic striking her when she noticed the door bolted closed.
     “I was thinkin that I would give you something other than my money to remember me by.” Another sinister smile wrapped his lips. He reached into his pocket and pulled out his knife. Tess shuttered beneath him. He watched her as he slowly opened it exposing its gleaming blade.
     “Aaron please.” Tess pleaded. He brought the knife closer to her face and she started to scream and flail, trying to buck him off of her. Aaron used his free hand to grab and steady her face as she tried to shake it free.
     “No, please, Aaron, no.” Sobbing, Tess tried to wriggle her face out of his grip.
     “Shhh. It’ll only hurt for a second.” The cold steel of the knife met the warm flesh of her cheek. He started by the corner of her eye and slid the blade the entire length to her chin. Tess cried out.
     Aaron was so hypnotized by his work that he sliced into the flesh of his thumb holding her jaw before he stopped. Then he leaned back and admired his craftsmanship. The blood was running down her face and starting to drip on the floor.
     “Who’s gonna want you now?”

Thanks for your continued support!

Crutch pt 7

Admit it. You knew that you were waiting for me to post this all day long weren't you? I bet you were. Okay, I'm just kidding. Anyone who is following along, THANK YOU! and anyone who is new--there is a Page at the top of my blog called Crutch. You can go there and read from start to finish.

     “Son of a bitch!” Tess screamed. Her one chance came and gone in a flash. She gripped the steering wheel, stifling the tears that were welling up in her eyes. Knowing what she had to do, she swallowed hard and raising her chin high in the air. Tess unlocked the door and got out of the car.

     When she walked back up to the door, she could see him sitting on the countertop. She didn’t close the door behind her.

     “Missing something?” Aaron’s smug demeanor was nauseating. Tess just stared straight ahead not giving him eye contact. “You know, that wasn’t a very nice thing to do. Shit like that hurts.”

     Aaron sprang off the counter; Tess lurched back for the door. They both froze, trying to anticipate each other’s next action. The broken dinnerware crackled under his boots as his weight shifted giving Tess some leverage.

     The grating noise from the shards under his feet caused a chill to climb the full length of her spine. She twitched. Aaron knew that he was intimidating her and savored every second as he cocked he head and took her in. This is exactly how he liked her; she was at her most stunning. Quivering with fear, not vile with tears and blubbering.

     “You did come back for these didn’t you?” He dangled the keys out in front of her.

     “Yes.” Slipped across her lips almost a whisper.

     “Here, take them.” He held them out at arm’s length to her. Tess reluctantly reached her hand out to grab the keys from Aaron. With keys almost in hand, Aaron released them before Tess touched them, sending them to the ground.

     Tess took her eyes off of Aaron and her eyes followed the keys for a fraction of a second before the left hook he threw connected sending her careening backward and into the door jam knocking her unconscious.

So if you are still interested keep following along and there should be another snippet available next week. It's like a mini soap opera right? I do appreciate those who are following and commenting. It helps my writing if I know what your thinking dear readers...

Misshapen grief, giveaways, and web splashes!

Yeah it looks like a mouthful doesn’t it. Well I wanted to let everyone know what has been going on with me lately. I have mostly posted excerpts of some of my work and giveaways or plugs for other giveaways. So it is time to dish, dish, dish about me.

It has been a really tough couple months for my family. We adopted a stray dog (boxer) See pic above… I named her Tess. Yep, she gave me the idea for the name of my WIP CRUTCH. Well this poor baby girl was used and abused by previous owners.

The bread the shamoley out of her, then dumped her, starved her…etc. I have always wanted a boxer and Murphy (Brad (hubby)) said YES! SQUEE! I was so happy. She took to all of us. When I say all of us, to those who are new to my bloggy blog, there are seven of us. For those of you who think you misread that it is 7.

Anyway, we have had a lot of trials and tribulations trying to get Tess settled. Took her to the vet, she had heartworms, they dewormed her (so they said) and I set her up to get spay. Cause her poor little woman parts were just a mess. We got her spayed and then she had diarrhea. Another trip to the vet. Some pills later she seemed to do better. Then a week later she was still losing weight and looking bad, not eating, urinating herself… so we chose a different vet.

Let’s just say that one vet missed some things that another vet found. Our poor baby was suffering because she was very, very sick. I did the only humane thing I felt I could do for her. I let her go and now she is watching over us with God.

So I have been mourning for our little girl. But she has a special spot right under my big ol tree (prior post) where she can over look the property.

Then we had Thanksgiving…I cooked for the family and we ate way-to-much. I hope everyone enjoyed time with their family and friends over the holiday.

Also, this is the final week for the ARCHVILLIAN giveaway. Previous post…this book is signed by Barry Lyga himself. Wonderful man. So click the Archvillian cover on the right… yup, see it over there. Now click it and comment. I could pick you!
