a big favor to ask...

There isn't anything going on around here. Unless you count the major yard work that my husband is in the midst of, or the computer project I'm working on at my job, or the painting I'm planning on doing in the house. It is spring break, and I am totally enjoying the prospect of a little vacation, sleeping in and painting my kitchen. Mom's giving me a pedicure for Easter and I'm thrilled about that.

This photo is from our trip last year to New York...we stopped in Philadelphia. I just thought a photo makes a post more fun.

Here's something else I want to talk about. Or, ask about, rather. If you didn't read my other blog much (or didn't even know I had another blog) you may have missed that I wrote a book over the last year. A YA fiction book. It has not been published but I am hoping that maybe in the near future it might be. Would any of you be interested in reading some of it and giving me your thoughts? I was thinking I might create a private blog for those that might be interested, and post some of the chapters online. I feel like I need some more feedback before I send it out places.

If you liked Twilight, I think you might like this. No vampires or anything, but a paranormal romance, as they call it in the BIZ. Whatever. If you didn't like Twilight, then you might try it anyway and give me your feedback. (And no, Mom, I'm still not ready for you to read it. ) :)

Would you comment and let me know if you are interested in reading any of it? That will give me some idea if I really should go ahead and create another page. Let me know!

I just finished the third book in the Twlight series (put a hold request for the fourth...but it looks like it is going to be a few weeks before I get it). I am loving it! Can you believe I went to Forks last year and hadn't read the books.

I would love to read through and given you input! Have a good weekend (and good spring break!).

I'd love to check it out. I'm a former English teacher and just finished reading all four Twilight books last week. Also,I have been reading your blog for a while and would love to help you out. My email is aleishacd@hotmail.com

Happy to help! I love to read. I read Twilight but it was a bit too intense for me reading right before going to bed. But otherwise I liked it.

Sissy said...

Okay, if you already asked, you are should have been sent an invitation!

I would love to read it! I read mostly YA and juvenile fiction as it is, and love fantasy/sci-fi/paranormal!

I also was a reviewer for HarperCollins adult and kids books. AND I teach English, and love books.

Personally, though I love the Twilight books, I love them because of the great story. The writing kinda sucked.

Sissy, I read it and wrote up a comment, but couldn't get it to post over on that site. It says it's restricted to team members. I tried using my husband's google acct (Bill) and then made my own google acct with my name Aleisha. Anyway, let me know... if you'd like I can just copy and paste them over here. aleishacd@hotmail.com

Sissy said...

Oh, if you want to be invited, I need an email address!

E said...

We live just outside of Philly! Hope you enjoyed it. Best of luck with your book. I would like to read it! My friend keeps telling me that I need to read Twilight but I can barely get through my current book. I recently finished Water for Elephants and LOVED it.

BTW, you and your dh are a very cute couple!

Oh, my email is waiting_and_waiting at ymail.com
