Back to School Soon

I know I’ve been slightly inconsistent with posts (okay, that may be a slight over exaggeration). But hey, it’s never too late to post again (right?). School is right around the corner (too close to admit, trust me) so I figured now would be a good time to try and pick this up again.

Anyways, a summary of what’s important since I left:

*JEFF GORDON WON HOMESTEAD!!!

*Michigan man Brad Keselowski is the current NASCAR cup holder!

*Peyton Manning has done better than anyone expected, and for some reason Matt Ryan is still not getting the attention he deserves (PLEASE let it be those two head-to-head in the SuperBowl). Eli Manning couldn’t pull his crap together, and the Lions sucked as usual.

*Wait, this isn’t a blog about sports, sorry, but I’m a little too die-hard to not at least MENTION what’s going on there. I promise though, no more sports until the SuperBowl (unless I could care less who wins) and Daytona 5oo.

So, some stuff actually relevant to what I promised this blog was about:

*My sister and I started Once Upon a Time. About time. Its first season was one of the most well put-together premier seasons I have ever seen (and I’ve seen too many to admit in public)

*Ariel (my writing partner in crime) and I have finally started the epic YA fantasy series we started on a whim one day when we were REALLY bored two or three ish years ago

*Part of my christmas gift was money to spend on books! Maybe some reviews soon? (I’m currently reading Libba Bray’s The Diviners and I love it so far).

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Years!

I’m Back!

Right when you thought I was done for and you would never get to read anything I posted ever again, I came back! For once, I wasn’t not posting because I forgot or because I got bored or couldn’t think of anything to write, but I got sick and had an interview! (Note: adding tags is dangerous on this thing, if you hit delete too many times it’ll take you off this page and you may end up having to write two posts, yea!)

While you guys may have loved reading what I wrote when I was spacy, I would have been embarressed. Why? You would be able to tell I was spacy. I also took a break from writing when I couldn’t think clearly but now I’m back on track with that too. (And now it’s time to tag this sucker again, wish me luck).

YA High Fantasy

Hello world (well, mostly those who read young adult or high fantasy). My sister and I are working on a young adult/high fantasy series. We’ve been working on it for over a year…. (you did not read that wrong). It’s difficult because we have to agree on every small detail which is not small feat. We don’t just have the fact we are sisters working against us, but artists too and if you have ever seen on of those team challenges on Project Runway, you know artists don’t play well together. Luckily, my sister and I do play well, but that does not mean we disagree. Last night we were arguing over what the basic style of some of the lands were…. Not kidding.

Anyways, I was curious if young adult fans would read something considered high fantasy (well, I suppose by virtue of being a young adult novel (thus highly character focused) maybe it’s just middle fantasy… I’ll get experts chose after it’s published). I am also curious if high fantasy readers will see the typical YA cover and not read it despite the fact we’ve spent hours over maps and culture. 

It seems I keep asking this question, this “would read blank if I wrote it?” Is that good or bad I wonder. Good because my stories are not about vampires falling for werewolves or bad because no one has written that because no one will read that…. I suppose we will find out soon enough!
