Taking Charge~ Another Vote?

Hey all my lovely readers! Today is the finishing touches for my book tour with Mandy and her book Taking Charge. It's been a great week, hasn't it? We have 3 things going on today!

1. Taking Charge is full of words. Sure. I know you are thinking, All books are full of words, right? Well this book may just surprise you. You see, Robyn uses words that just don't make any "sense" because they are unfamiliar with her friends. So today, if you know of any words that are "different" where you live, please let me know.

For instance, where I am from, we start the car. But I have friends who crank the car. I say french fries, but I have friends who chips. (So does Robyn, by the way)

What about you? What can you add to my dictionary?

2. Real quick! Where is the most romantic place you could think of meeting your husband for the very first time? What about the most unusual or weird place?

I say, the most romantic would be the beach!

The weirdest? How about the bathroom? (I do know of a girl who met her future husband in the restroom. The had to go, really bad, and the mens room was open so she took a chance no one would come, but, she was wrong:)

What about you?

3. Let's finish up our vote for the wedding scrapbook page. Here are the choices we received:
 Prince William and Kate wedding style (Regal)
A toned-down blue and red with touches of white
Red and black color theme.

I need your votes today. Lots to do I know, but if you can take the time to vote and add to the dictionary, I sure would appreciate it:) Once the votes are in, I'll create the new scrapbook page!


  1. 1. I had so much fun explaining UK words to the lovely editors at Sapphire Star! I think they thought I was making up a whole new language! It's amazing how we all speak English but it's so different! The whole pants/trousers thing gets me every time!

    2. I think the most romantic meetings are completely random ones that take you both by surprise. We know Cole and Robyn meet at an airport completely by chance! I like it when two people end up at the same place at the same time by coincidence or maybe Fate - that's romance!

    3.I'm going for the regal theme here - well it is Jubilee year for the Queen and we have the Olympics coming up too!

  2. 1. I know a lot of Arabic words and some French, but I doubt those will help you much...
    2. I guess the most romantic place would be at the end of a rescue line while you're dangling over a cliff. The worst? In a courtroom if he's the prosecuting you for some crime.
    3. I vote Regal.
    Good luck!

  3. 1. Bum-bag! US: Fanny-bag?? Can never get my head around that.

    2. When he arrests her for soliciting. Eeek!

    3. Regal. Has to be. Black and white as a theme could look quite nice, but I just don't know about the blue, red and white.

  4. 1. In our house we liven up the boring word, oatmeal, and make it "oap-a-meal". Also, there's "stitchaly" to describe the pins and needles feeling your foot gets when it falls asleep :)

    2. Gotta throw in a vote for the beach as the most romantic place...I first told my now-husband I loved him as we stood in the Pacific Ocean!

    3. I suck at crafts and have no color choice style whatsoever, so I'll have to pass on this one :)

  5. My little brother used to ask for "bome bome" which was MILK!

    Most romantic spot to meet you future husband? The beach!
    Most unusual? the jailhouse!

    My wedding was red and black, so I am voting for the red/black theme.

  6. Wow! The site looks great. So patriotic! :)

  7. In Australia, if you say you are stuffed, it means ou are expecting a baby:)

    I met my husband at an evening beach party.
    The weirdest place to meet your boyfriend would be the funeral house.

    I vote for the Regal wedding theme.

  8. I might be too late for the vote, but...

    In my neck of the woods, we say "it's spitting" when it's barely raining (we also say "neck of the woods").

    Most romantic place? somewhere totally unexpected, like in line at the DMV or at a roadside peaches stand.

    Least romantic? Getting a colonoscopy, maybe?

    I'd go Royal Wedding.

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!!!
