I hit a bit of writer’s block. So I’ve been working on proofing what I have so far, in hopes it’ll work itself out. So far I’m getting a few more ideas.

I also wanted to remind you about the R&M’s Halloween Spook-tacular! It’s going on all month! If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should! LOTS of authors are participating in this, and there are tons of prizes and swag to be given away! Links are below!

Goblin Spells Unicorns

Published September 26, 2012 by Ema Volf

Today I read Goblin Spells Unicorns by Christina Worrell

This book is about Grub and Ditto, two little goblins. They were doing chores while their Master was away gathering spell ingredients. While they were scrubbing the spell wall, they noticed a spell had been left unfinished. Afraid they would get in trouble, they decided to try to fix it without telling their Master about it, even though he had told them to do nothing but their chores. Naturally, their plan backfired.

It’s safe to say that this is the cutest children’s book with life lessons that I’ve come across in a while! And in only 8 pages, it covers so many!

I also read this to my son, who also loved it, because instead of the typical bears, puppies, and kittens, it had goblins, wizards, and unicorns! He loves the extra magical spin!

Thank you, Christina Worrell for writing such an awesome children’s book! My son has a new bedtime favorite!

Cover, Take 2

I had some issues while trying to upload the cover to CreateSpace for the print copy, so I had to adjust the cover a bit. Lessons learned and all that. Anyways, this will be the new official cover! I’m very happy with it!

 

In other news, CreateSpace stuff was all uploaded this afternoon. šŸ™‚ So now I get to wait until they contact me.

I also have an awesome event coming up, but I don’t want to say anything until the information is officially released. But I will say that I’m SO EXCITED and I can’t wait! šŸ™‚

BEST COMPLIMENT EVER!

I just heard from one of my beta readers who HATES fantasy books! I expected her to stop reading after chapter 2!

ā€Ž”I will suffer through another fantasy novel for you”

No, seriously, from her that’s a HUGE compliment! She also went on to say this:

“Anyway, totally meant it with love and respect. Book was really good. šŸ™‚Ā IĀ know some people can’t read books like that but they can watch the movie. I normally cannot stomach either. I do, however, tend to love stories where girls go above and beyond what most people think females ahould do. And this book def has that aspect.”

GENIUS!

I got a proof of the print format from my friend, Kenneth, who fixed it after I messed it up. Actually, “messed it up” isn’t strong enough. BUTCHERED it. LOL! I have to say, he’s a GENIUS! It looks awesome! I can’t wait for you guys to see it!

Also, I want to request that you guys keep the kids, teachers, and parents at Perry Hall High School in your thoughts/prayers as they heal physically and emotionally from the shooting attack yesterday. I can’t even imagine what they’re going through. Not only the kids who were innocent bystanders. It breaks my heart to think about what the shooter’s parents are going through right now.

Anyways, I’m going to get back to writing book two. Thought I’d give you guys an update.
