I realise you haven’t heard from me in a while but I do have a good reason!
I recently got hired at a small publishing firm, which is just starting up. It’s super exciting but also a little scary.
Anyway, we’re coming out with our first book (yeah!), which is a Halloween poetry collection called Phantom Listeners.
We’re starting a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds and I wanted to ask you all to check it out. We’re going live in a week, but the pre-launch page is officially up. We do have some Early Bird Offers if anyone is interested. Next week, I’ll upload an extract from my novel-in-progress to thank you all!
Anyway, here’s the link:
A/N: Sorry for the long wait. Here’s a short note as to what I thought of the novel It by Stephen King.
Stephen King has time and time again been crowned the unofficial King of Horror, and as It was my first introduction to his work, expectations were high.
King did not disappoint.
I am not usually a big fan of horror, but It was a fascinating read. It was truly intriguing to see how the actual monster of the novel paled in comparison to its influence on the cruelty occasionally found in humankind.
Bullying becomes torture, and abusive tendencies turn into murder. It was a frightening book full of interesting characters, with a well-developed plot, and a truly heinous monster.
A/N: Hi, guys! So, for july month my summer job is going to get pretty crazy (50+ hours a week plus about 14 hours of transport) so I’m not a hundred I’ll be able to post every Friday. I’ll try though, but no promises 😉
Anyway, here’s this Friday’s story: Enjoy and comment!
It wasn’t that Meredith was bullied or anything. After all; in order to be bullied she would first have to be noticed, and Meredith was… well, she was as close to invisible as you could get without it becoming kind of cool.
She spent her days in school sitting in the back of the class, never raising her hand or in any other way drawing attention to herself. After school she went home to be ignored some more by her parents because they were too focused on the many problems of her older brother. Alcohol, drugs, theft, you name it. It was no wonder that they didn’t have time for the daughter that didn‘t give them any trouble. They were busy enough with one of their children as it were.
The point was that Meredith had gotten used to being lonely. Truth be told she couldn’t remember being anything but. She’d just never been comfortable around other people.
Which was when she discovered the internet.
Cyberspace to be exact.

And here’s the original work that I promised you guys! A bit different than what I usually write, but I hope you enjoy it just the same. Please like or comment if you do 😉
In Elena’s opinion there were few better jobs than being a babysitter. Of course then it obviously wasn’t what she was going to do with the rest of her life. After graduation she was going to be a model. But for now, as she was about to finish her third year of high school, babysitting was an acceptable substitute.
For one thing she could already put the children to bed around eight, and the parents usually didn‘t come home until ten or eleven at night. Which meant two-three hours of being paid for watching television, eating whatever delicious thing she could find in the refrigerator and chatting with her friends over the phone. But her favourite part of babysitting, her absolute favourite, had to be the snooping.
Elena had always been a curious child. A curious child who had eventually grown up into an even more curious teenager. She loved knowing everything there was to knows about other people’s personal lives. She lived for gossip and dirty little secrets. And boy, could you find many dirty little secrets as a babysitter.
She went through medicine cabinets, jewel boxes, night stand tables. The juicier the better. And did she find some juicy stuff.
