Fair Grounds Now Open

It has finally arrived! The CQ Carnival is open for fun! The first thing you need at the carnival is tickets!

Step right up!
Come one!
Come all!

Stop by the ticket booth and get your tickets. Now, tickets aren't free. Nope! What do they cost? Every follower sign-up to Ink in the Book is worth 5 tickets.
Every follower sign-up to Blogs signed up the Buccanner Blogfest is worth 2 tickets. (of course, you will have to let me know you followed another blog by commenting, so this will be worth 3 tickets!)
Every comment on Ink in the Book is worth 1 ticket.

Now, I will be keeping track of all the follower sign-ups and comments for the ENTIRE month of the Carnival and every ticket "purchased" by you will go into a random drawing at the end of the Carnival for some fabulous prizes! FREE BOOKS. Woot! Woot! So, the more you comment, the more tickets you get, the more chances of winning. Oh yeah, oh yeah:)

A new booth will open up on a regular basis, so you will want to visit every day.

The Ticket Booth is being hosted by a character from one of MY manuscripts.

Her name is Sailor. She love ice cream waffle cones, bubble gum snow cones and her favorite ride is the Ferris Wheel. She loves playing all the games and she usually wins on the first round. She is a fashion designer for, oops! I can't tell you that! But you might get a clue if you look at her face paint. Yes, she's already been to the Face Painting booth, but it isn't open to the public yet. There will be clues all month about my characters, settings and thems from my manuscript.

If you want to host a booth, let me know and we'll get your characters on the road to the big top!


  1. Ooh I like Sailor already. (: She sounds like fun! I'm kind of confused with the carnival, so maybe I missed an earlier post before "Curiosity Quills Carnival - Starting Next Week". I'll look around (:

    1. Hi Kendra. Just let me know if you have any question, okay?

  2. Sailor sounds like a fun character :)

    1. She is! She a handful, actually.
      Glad you stopped by!

  3. I like her name, Sailor :D

    Can one of my characters host a booth? Ooh...they are squabbling over who gets to do it!

    1. Sure Juhi! You can email me at and I can give you the details.

  4. Yay! So glad it's starting. Thanks for the tickets, Sailor.

    1. Sailor says you are welcome. She's super excited, too.

  5. Sailor says you are welcome and she's super excited, too.

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

My Writing Career Changes and Plans

With today's access to the world via Internet, I’ve come in contact with hundreds of websites. Who hasn’t, right? As a writer, looking for the perfect agent to represent my manuscript (s) it’s been a tempting temptation to put my work out there to anyone who is interested. I mean that’s what all authors want, isn’t? To have a published book by anyone who is willing to print it? That’s a huge NO. My perspective on this has changed in a drastic, career changing way. After being swindled a few times, cheated twice, used by so-called friends in the industry, and lied to more than I can count, I’m pulling back the pens and doing a huge inventory check. My most recent girl agent crush has recently tweeted an extensive amount of writer tips, which I took to heart. She mentioned that self publishing works for some and may be a good thing for them. But if the reason a writer chooses to self pub is because no one else will represent them or publish them, then you are cutting your se
