Today was my first Driver's Ed class (driving and lecture). This morning, my mom said "relax, you won't be driving today." Well, she was wrong. No sooner had my new friend (she's from a different school) and I introduced ourselves to our instructor, that he asked, "Who's going first?" I made her go first, but when I went, it wasn't as bad as I feared it would be. Daunting, but not absolutely terrifying.
Later, the lecturer was telling us that the first thing we would learn about was turning, and that we would start with right turns, then left turns, but that none of it would start until later. My new friend and I looked at each other. We both had made left and right turns during our driving earlier that morning.
Anyway, it was a very exciting morning. The next 15 Saturdays, I'll be learning how to drive... how exciting!!!
In this gripping young adult novel, author Kiersten White creates another engaging world in which readers can immerse themselves. I mean, who doesn’t love the idea of being supernatural? Being better than normal people? I know that I’d love the extra advantage, but this book and Kinetic by S.K. Anthony prove that being extraordinary has its price—and usually a very steep one.
Sisters Sofia “Fia” and Annie are both supernaturally gifted. Kept at a special school, they are trained to hone their powers and run “missions” for the head of school and his son. When Fia almost dies, both sisters realize they must escape and protect each other against all odds.
I have decided to get a brand redesign by the amazing Hafsah Laziaf of IceyDesigns. We've been emailing back and forth a lot, and the preliminary designs are amazing! I'm getting a new logo, blog button, and new website. It's beautiful, and happens to use a palette called "Sherlock" with all my favorite colors, so obviously I'm happy.
Last Friday, I participated in my CP's Cover Reveal of her debut novel, Fire of Stars and Dragons (see it here), but starting on January 22, 2014, I have been operating her Official Twitter Fan Account (@TeamDracopraesi), and yesterday (2/2/14) she gave me the official title of "Personal PR Assistant"! Now if that isn't exciting, I don't know what is. Ever since, I've been putting together a mini-blog tour for her because her book got selected to go on Pre-Order starting Feb 28 (it's really exciting) and I'm getting great work experience.
In other news, this Saturday I registered for Driver's Ed and next Monday I start having College Meetings (and should get my SAT scores back). A lot is happening, and I'm super excited! For anyone wondering, I'm still working on Tears of an Angel and am almost 20% done (you can keep track on the book page or in the blog sidebar).
I'm a self-published author— because being a college student wasn't hard enough! I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love This Is Us, NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
