Joy and Sorrow

Although I am looking forward for you to read Snow White SORROW very soon, I can't express how much JOY certain emails bring me. I mean writing as a second job can be really exhausting but it's little things like two email I received recently that make feel like 'Wow. I never got response like this from anyone when I did my job which actually pays me really money.'

But it's not the money, it's the dumdi-dar-ra-rum-rum! and you know what that is? Appreciation and most importantly  SHARING.

I've always wanted to make a weekly blogpost about Readers of the month or the week, but I couldn't because there so many kind readers to me who helped in every way possible, and when I made a list, it was too big. So I decided to start with two amazing woman/girls who sent me two lovely emails recently.

The first one is a 65 year old woman, who has a happy tone and voice in her writing you can't think but that she is much much younger. Her name is Sandy ( I will not mention family names ) and she did write me one the loveliest emails about 'I AM ALIVE' and how the book made her happy. I won't be saying everything in the email but it made my day that my writing made her so happy.

Last, but definitely not least, is Heather, who is disabled, but is a hundred times stronger and energetic than Decca. Heather wrote to me about how this book was one of the few that she connected with, and kindly compared me to other reputable writers that I can't dream to match at all. But what was so heartwarming about her email is that I could put a smile on her face with my silly words. Thank you Heather for the awesome email:) 

So some things pay off in an unexpected way. I could have 1000 people hating  my book, and only two of them liking it in that way. And believe me, that's more than enough.

And this brings me that I'm joining in with fellow Indelibles who host a blogfest called INDIE-giving. It's a chance for anyone and everyone to take a day on their blog to be thankful. join them if you like. Plenty of lovely authors there too. Each author is giving away books this week in that event ( I have given all my books free this month so I guess I will be spared lol )

Happy Thanksgiving

Talk to you soon, Monster and Fairytales:)

Blood Apples and I AM Alive book 2 episode 1 Are OUT

I will post another blog on Sunday with all the freebies I am offering on my birthday week.
For now, I am happy to say that Blood Apples, Grimm Prequels #6, I Alive book 2 episode are out 

here is the link on
and here is the link on

Also, you might know that I am releasing I Am Alive as a serial where each book is 3 episodes, now edited, revised and much better.  So the episodic release is out too. Episode 1 of book 2 as well
Below you'll find links to the episodes:

I Am Alive book 1 ( 3 Episodes ) :
1 Nice Day to Die ( book 1 episode 1 )
2 Wheel of Fortune ( book 1 episode 2 )
3 Through Your Eyes ( book 1 episode 3 )

I Am Alive book 2 ( Increscent ) ( 3 Episodes ):
1 Girl with Golden Eyes ( book 2 episode 1 )

If you're wondering why releasing I Am Alive as episodes is because I'm crammed with finishing Snow White Sorrow ( which is already late ) and I didn't want you to wait long to know about Decca, Leo, and Woo. This way I am able to add a new episode soon enough while working on Snow White Sorrow.

Alice Grimm Get Her Own Series

This is a brief post. You know that my rewriting of Snow White Sorrow is consuming everything ( even completing the I AM ALIVE series ) I can't explain but many writers know when a bulb shimmers suddenly in your head and most of the pieces fit into place. That's what's happened to me with the Grimm Diaries. So I decided to seize the day and put all the madness in my head on paper before it evaporates - I did that mistakes when writing I AM ALIVE. I should have finished the series right away when it was buzzing in my head. Also the fact that I already like Snow White Sorrow so much makes me enthusiastic with the new changes that can make it even better.

So while re-writing, I came upon Alice Grimm who was supposed to appear in book 3 of the Grimm Diaries. That's almost 600 pages away. And since many of you have kindly asked me about Alice Grimm since she appeared only once in Ashes to Ashes and Cinder to Cinder ( which is secretly my favorite of the prequels ) I decided that Alice Grimm is too much of an interesting character to appear so late in a series crammed up with other character.  So Alice get her own series. It will be lighthearted and fun, and if it works, she might cross over and meet up with the other in the Grimm Diaries. It will take some time to bring it out though.
