Velvet Sky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Even if you know what The Mana Saga is, there is a chance you probably don't know about Velvet Sky. And that's probably my fault because I don't share much...ehhhhhhhhhh.

Anyway, Velvet Sky is the third installment of The Mana Saga. Not sure if there will be a fourth book or if the series will just be a trilogy, all I know is it gets better with each book (in my humble opinion). Over at Wattpad, my second home, I've been nothing but dedicated to writing my very first series ever!

Velvet Sky is going to be the most heart-wrenching of all the books in the series so far. A lot happens and naturally, it will be very hard to hard. But I have very supportive fans who will see me through anything. And not just my fans, I have a very supportive circle that includes my family and friends.

Since I began writing, one word has burned itself into my brain..for better and worse. SACRIFICE. And when I think of sacrifice, I think about how slowly but surely, it became the theme for my writing. As Velvet Sky nears completion, it makes me wonder just what I've given up to complete this series. I can't determine whether is was all worth it or not until I have finished, but I have a new passion. That's writing for all the people who wake up and support whatever crazy comes out of my head.

The first chapter is done and I'd like everyone to read it, after you have read the other two of course!

Thanks for everything, everyone!

I saved a bird!

I was over a friend's house, laughing it up and having a great time. Went to step outside and in the corner of my eye was a small bird just lying on the floor. Well..I got a little closer to the bird and saw that it was still breathing and it was actually stuck on a fly/bug trap.

Who knew the adhesive was strong enough on those traps to render a bird useless?

I don't like birds...nope! Not one bit, but the little guy traced me back and forth with its lil beaded eye and something just came across me. Hit me like a ton of bricks. I didn't know what to do at first, so I grabbed my trusty, bird-loving brother, Chaz to help me get it out the trap.


That bird was stuck bad and we didn't think we could get it out without causing a lot of harm, but we did it! Darwin is a little shocked and scared (Oh, I named it Darwin :)), but he's finally moving around a bit. Got a cage and some food for Darwin and now the only trouble is letting the woman of the house know! I'm sure she'll let Darwin stay for a bit until he can recover and grow back the feathers that got stuck on the trap.

He's actually kinda cute...

I can't say that it has been a very eventful Saturday since I woke up. As a matter of fact, this has probably been one of the most menial Saturdays I've had in my life. Waking up on the wrong side of the bed is no fun. But no matter which side we wake up on, the rest of our days can be changed!

I was so prepared to be in a bad mood all day. I woke up and got very little writing done. It was even boring in the shower! I needed a little pick me up and I got it in the form of a music video. My bad mood was totally alleviated. Woodkid has this song called Iron and the sheer epicness of both the track and video just made me forget what was bothering me. I feel awesome now. Honestly, I probably love the song so much because it was used in an official Assassin's Creed trailer.

Either way I'm feeling great now and kinda ready to tackle the day. I've even got a few things planned since I'm good to go now. I am going to help a friend move into his apartment today as well spend a great amount of time finishing up a couple chapters of Velvet Sky.

Going to be a great day I can feel it.

100,000 reads for Mana and counting!

I've been over at Wattpad and it's so interesting interacting with so many people! In the short time that Mana has been on there, it managed to hit 100,000 reads--and I couldn't have done that without the support of the Wattpad community. I'm writing more than ever now!

I really never thought Mana would make it to this many reads...EVER, but it did! I'm forever grateful to the Wattpad community and because I really love it so much, I'm holding a giveaway that I'm sure readers would love! I'm giving away a Barnes & Noble $25 gift card and a few bookmarks I dedicated to Mana because I'm sure people have huge reading libraries :)

Mana is on the rise and it feels great.

So please enter and help me celebrate.

(That actually kinda rhymed)
