Sweet Peril is finally here! I cannot express how long I waited for this book to come out. After Sweet Evil, I was left waiting with baited breath for this amazing sequel... and it was completely worth it, albeit very frustrating to put my curiosity on hold for so long.
As always, Wendy Higgins doesn’t disappoint. She deftly weaves together a tale of adventure with sexual tension constantly hovering over the characters. Especially with Anna sent with Kopano on multiple missions to recruit more Nephilim. Despite them bonding, she can't stop thinking about Kaidan—even if he is avoiding her and is not the most emotionally open guy.
Today, Deborah Rocheleau posted an awesome interview with self-published teen author Rebecca Mcnutt. In it, Rebecca talks about how she self-published her own series after turning down some traditional publishers/small presses because they wanted to change certain parts she wanted to keep. She also talks about some of the stigmas associated with teen authors who are trying to be published and even financial difficulties for a teen author.

For those of you who regularly check this blog, you will know that on April 16th, 2013 I finished my 1st Draft of 7th Heaven. I'm still excited about it! I started revising minor details on my own, but I have a lot of waiting to do because my critique partner or "CP" is busy adding comments.
But since I don't like being idle, I decided to start working on the sequel: Tears of an Angel. I can't say much because it spoils the end of 7th Heaven, but I'm really excited to get started.
So, for those who read my Exciting Stuff post, the first 4 things have come to pass (well, the contest is still up, but not for long! Deadline is May 1st, so get your submissions in.
Stay tuned for more exciting stuff coming!
UPDATE as of 2:40pm: I FINISHED! It was an amazing read. Gonna go and write some of Where Madness Dwells with my co-author now, but check back here soon.
TCWT: What is your ultimate goal as a writer?
ZH: To be a published author with an income of at least $100 (ideally more, obviously) off my books alone. I don't know whether that means self-publishing or the traditional route (I'm keeping my options open, but I do dream of seeing my books on Barnes and Noble shelves). But either way I want to become known for my fantasy romance series "The Belgrave Legacy" (Book 1 is 7th Heaven, which I'm currently drafting), my Alice in Wonderland-inspired novel, Where Madness Dwells, and my literary story, Eve is Dead.
I don't need to be JK Rowling or Amanda Hocking famous, but I want at least 1,000 fans. I want my fanbase to be voracious readers, kind and respectful of one another, and very vocal in their praise.
I eventually want to go to a Writer's Digest Conference and Book Expo America too, but I'm waiting for a finished manuscript before I do that, just in case I meet an agent who's interested.
I'm a self-published author (because being a college student wasn't hard enough!) and spend most of my time doing homework. I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
