Lend For Ever

For Ever is officially down from Barnes and Noble. :-( The good news is that Amazon Prime members can now lend it out for free, so when you're done reading, loan it to a friend!

Spread the love

I've read a lot of Amazon and Goodreads reviews (not of my book -- I'm not that brave) and posts on other boards like IMDB, and I've noticed a lot of young female main characters (MCs) getting a lot of hate. A lot of love, too. But let's face it. On the Internet, hating stuff has become somewhat of a sport.

Personally, I avoid posting nasty comments about stuff I don't necessarily care for. A) I think it's bad karma. B) I think about how I've felt when someone has said something less than kind about me or my work. It just plain sucks, which is in part my MC in For Ever can read minds.

These days we can read complete strangers' minds, thanks to the Internet. Just go and read someone's blog, a review of something, or the comment on any Web site. People are very honest these days, but many times it's in an "I'm on my computer, so I'm going to say whatever I want" sort of way.

Point is: I took a creative writing class, and the professor said something really interesting when people started bashing one of the stories' main characters. She said that oftentimes it's not something about the character that we're responding to, but something in ourselves, our lives, or our view of the world. Sometimes, we either love or hate characters because they touch on something we may not even be aware of.

I always think of that when I'm reading something. What can I learn from my response to it?

Long post, and I don't know if anyone's listening, but I feel better. Tell someone -- online or in person -- that you appreciate them or their work. It goes a long way!

Spread the love.

First day of summer is tomorrow

Summer solstice ... The longest day of the year. This actually has some significance in For Ever's sequel, which is coming out Valentine's Day 2013. Yep. This seems really far away, that is until I think about all the stuff I need to get done before then.

So, what are you reading this summer?

And have you told your friends about For Ever? (Word of mouth is golden.)

Stay tuned. Updates and more teasers coming soon!

Paradise is right! For Ever's tropical island

For people finished reading For Ever, it was a pic like this that was the inspiration behind a certain scene. ...

I wouldn't mind waking up here!

Thoughts? Is this how you imagined it?

Who's reading For Ever?

To the kind people who have read and enjoyed For Ever—and those who have gone above and beyond and posted awesome reviews—thank you. You guys rock.

Who are you?

Where are you from?

And are you ready for Never?

Hard copy?

Gotta love e-books, but is anyone interested in a hard copy of For Ever? I'm contemplating putting out a paperback version, but I'm not sure if it's worth the time and effort.
