I Survived the Urge to Craft 2015

It's a rare moment when I decide to get my craft on, but today, I found these snowflake ornaments on deep discount (thank you, after Christmas sales) and envisioned a cute little winter decoration type thingy for my boring white front door. 

In the process I hot glued my fingers together...more than once. I also glued a snowflake or two to my hand. I may or may not have burned the curious dog's furry little butt while wielding that glue gun. He for sure was confused and a little scared when I yelled very colorful words that he assumed were meant for him, given his history of being a vindictive pooper. In the end, I had a ridiculous amount of glitter on table and floor, and so much on me that I looked like a Vegs street walker leaving a hooker convention. (My brother says not to insult myself and make sure you know I'm not hooker material...only stripper material. Thanks for having big plans for me, bruh.)

Anyway, this is the final result. Burned skin and glitter in unmentionable places aside, I think it turned out ok.

Off the Record, Question 1

Fake News at Its Finest

Life has a way of putting me in my place. I had grand intentions to post weekly, and three months later....

So I think it's great that people are talking about fake news these days, because fake news is at the heart of Off the Record. I have a sleezeball paparazzo named Derrick Fuchs (it looks like a swear word, but it's pronounced 'fooks,' a purposeful play on words to immediately show what a douche nozzle he is) in the novel. He writes his articles based on the latest gossip without really caring who he hurts or how much of it is made up. I haven't decided yet if the reader gets to meet him, but the excerpt today is the first article we see from him. Enjoy!


Off the Record, Question 1 Part 2

If you haven't noticed, the format for Off the Record isn't in regular chapters. Main character Devi Madrigal is looking back in an interview for Rocker Chic mag, something I made up because every sleezeball papparazzo antagonist needs a place to work, right? So instead of chapters, you'll see questions and articles about her. It's a fun format to write in.😍

When we last hung out with The Streakers, they were trying to figure out how to make the finale of a live reality show after their lead singer Raina Sky ditched them that morning. They heard Devi singing after her shift at the coffee shop and want to sneak her in to sing for them. Will Devi tell them they're crazy? Can they sneak her in to a studio with tight security? Will this girl with a guitar and a dream steal the chance she's been trying for three years to reach?
