CQ Carnival: Booth 3 Haunted House

What's a carnival without a haunted house?
Who doesn't love a spooky place to visit on Friday the 13th?
We have a special host, too. You want to know who he is? I'm sure you do! First, here's a picture~~~

His name is Frankie. You may not know something really important about him. But you know me by now, don't you? I can;t tell you. Well not in an easy way. You can read this little article and find out what you need to know. THEN we will continue with the haunted house...

1. What's like being a ghost?

Well, I guess if I could describe it in one word, I'd say lonely. Like, I'm here, with people around me almost all the time, but yet I'm completely alone. I can't touch the girl I love, can't hug her. Can't open doors. Can't smoke a cigarette. Its like I exist, but I don't. Its limbo, purgatory. But ... if I had to do it over again, would I want to really die, and go to wherever it is I'm supposed to go? No. I'm supposed to be right here, with Ever. So if this is the only way, then being a ghost what I'm supposed to be. 

2. What's your favorite food not that you are, well, you know, dead?

Oh man, I used to love In'n'Out. Double Doubles with animal-style fries and a strawberry shake. Yeah. that's my favorite. What I wouldn't do for a double double right now. 
3. Is there a school where you live? If so, what's it like?

Yeah, I went to Orange High School. I guess school was pretty cool. I wasn't into sports or anything. I spent most of my time working on my car. My friends are probably in college now. I was supposed to go to San Luis for school, but that didn't happen. Ever's supposed to go to UCLA in the Fall, so I don't know what will happen to me. Maybe I'll get to go with her. I hope I'm not stuck in this house after she leaves. 

4. What about the town you live in now?

I still live in Orange. Born and raised. I didn't die here, but I ended up here with Ever. Right next door to the house I grew up in.  

5. Do you live in a house or an apartment?

A house.

6. What do you do for fun? 

 I don't really do anything for fun anymore. Whatever Ever's doing, I do. Mostly we just hang out. Being a ghost stuck in one house, kinda limits things. We watch a LOT of movies though. 

7.What's it like when you talk to Ever?

Its like home. She gets me, always has. There's nothing weird between us. We grew up together. Its only gotten kinda strange lately since he moved in next door. But we're still Ever and Frankie. That will never change. 

Now, I'm sure you are ready for the haunted house. Let's go!!

First, get your ticket:

Now, Frankie is here to guide your tour. Enjoy!

Wait! Don't go down there! Please don't listen to those screams. It's nothing. Really! Frankie, you know we agreed this would not be part of the haunted house.

Writer In Motion CP feedback

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have

Operation Agent Ink

UPDATE: PLEASE FILL OUT THIS QUESTIONNAIRE AFTER YOU SIGN UP. Have you ever wondered what agents were dying to find in their inbox/slush pile? There have been many times I entered a contest and not even received a comment, not even from one of the agents. Or maybe the agent was kind enough to leave a comment that simply said, "Sorry, this just isn't what I'm looking for, but I love the premise and your voice." I always walk away feeling unsatisfied. If I had known exactly what the agent wanted beyond, "YA" or "Fantasy" I might not have even entered a contest I knew I wouldn't win! Even more, I wasted a very busy agents time! Well, your time of guessing is up! OPERATION AGENT INK to the rescue! That's right! This workshop will help aspiring authors get on the list of an agent's WISH LIST! When the workshop is over, your manuscript will be ready to view by a group of AMAZING agents who are dying to see what you've wri

Insecure Writers Group

Today, my feelings are mixed. On one hand, I've faced more rejection and that's not easy to write about or admit to the world. But I am not crying in my "milk" (no beer, folks:) I want to, but what good would it do??? I received a detailed critique from a "Best First Line" contest. The critique was the best I have ever received and seriously opened my eyes to "how" to improve my writing. Nice! Speaking of critiques, I am still looking for a critique partner. If anyone is looking back, please let me know and we can swap info. I'm sending off a YA query letter and first pages to 3 agents this week. Wish me luck. This will be the first time I have directly contacted and agent with a query. Yes, I'm nervous, so I'm saying again, WISH ME LUCK!!!
