Complaints




Well, as some you of you might know, I'm preparing to be a student teacher for next semester. Part of that preparing means me actually stepping foot in the classroom. Well, I did today and boy did I learn alot!

Hey y'all, I'm back from the library sale and it was pretty good. Most books I got were young adult! :) I got like four adult. So which should we start with first?

Mama Instincts Whirlwind


Is it just me or are your momma instincts kicking in too?


I had this insane urge to crochet a hat, scarves, and mittens. Which is weird. Even though I love to crochet and all, I don't usually have the time or the energy to do it. Now I have that mamma urge to crochet like blankets and stuff. Weird, right? Am I the only one?

In Recent News at A Three Way Tie . . .



I just wanted to tell y'all that I cancelled the giveaway due to the fact that I'm currently editing my books. Therefore, I didn't feel it was fair that I would give you my books that are not in tip top shape.

I'm really sorry that the giveaway didn't work out like you guys have hoped but in the end, I had to pull the plug. Thank you for the interest in my book though. At least now I saved you the trouble of conducting a review!

In other news today . . .

Why is Editing Soooo Expensive?!




Please explain that nuclear bomb to me. I just don't get it. Sure, I understand as writers that we have to have a second pair of eyes on our works. It's a simple science that since we have looked at the manuscript for such a long period of time we are not going to catch what a fresh pair of eyes are going to catch. But does it have to be almost 1,000 dollars to get those kind of repairs fixed?

Another Book Review! Happy Birthday to Me!

Yippee! I got another book review! And on my birthday too! Happy B-Day to me! :)

http://30nightsinsomniac.blogspot.com/2011/09/review-iwishacanaacanawishi-by-larissa.html?showComment=1315319789811#c455377573066539550

I think this is just a life lesson: The sun is warm, the grass is green, and Larissa sucks at grammar!

*bangs head against counter*

Anyway, just a heads up, it's a good review, but I think it's time to throw in the white flag and call in back up for my bad grammar addiction, lol!

If anyone knows of a great editor with special zapper killer skills in grammar, then please shoot me a comment! Please! :)
