Tuesday Tales: Hidden Facts with Ghuli


It's the third Tuesday of the month again! This has been a long four weeks. For a second I could neither remember what I posted last month nor think of anything to post for this one. Then, I remembered Q&As and went to searching. I stumbled upon these Character Development Questions. One that struck me that a few of my main characters from Fractured Princess could answer was: What facts about your characters do they prefer to keep hidden?

Let's start with Ghuli and see how far we get.


Oh, my. Well . . . There is a part of me that I have unfortunately kept hidden even from myself. To explain how I've done it will be a very long story. Just know that deep within me lies a fearsome temper. I wish it were blind, blackout anger, but it is an anger throughout which I am always conscious, therefore I always remember. While it is rare for anything to anger me so strongly, when it happens, it is quite disastrous.

I hope I created a bit of mystery.

This is as far as I'm getting today (the evening before this is posted). I just finished the Once Upon A Time season finale and learned Jennifer, Ginnifer, Josh, et freaking al aren't returning for the seventh season, so I'm beside myself. I also have to rewatch because I wasn't paying attention to the little girl in the Enchanted Forest. *sigh*

Wednesday Words: Song of Blood & Stone by L. Penelope



It's the second Wednesday of MAY, can you believe it?! That means, it's time for Wednesday Words, where I share with you what I'm reading and/or writing.

I've actually been doing a little writing in my series for Fractured Princess. I have another CP from the AQC, and he's helped me see little things that had been plaguing me but I needed confirmation. I'm glad I went back to AQC. It had been a while. I'm also trying to write in Divided Princess, and I found myself writing even more for what will either open the third act of DP or the first act of Broken Princess, what I'm calling the third book if it comes down me writing one. I now understand why Natalie Whipple only gave us two Transparent books. lol

I've also started reading L. Penelope's Song of Blood & Stone. Here is the AMAZING cover.


I've been waiting to read this for so long. It was the Winner of the 2016 Self-Publishing Ebook Award for Best Fiction, which is so cool. I'm really enjoying it so far. Here is a little more about it on Goodreads.

There are 252 pages in the Kindle version, so let's see what Random.org wants me to share with you all....Page 206 (Come on, man). Yeah, I definitely just spoiled something for myself. Maybe I'll forget by the time I get there.

"What have I done, Usher? The woman I love in the dungeons. Allowing the refugees to be sent back. What does this make me?"

"It makes you a prince."

Well then! What are you reading this week?

IWSG: It's Already May?!


It is also the first Wednesday of the month, where we insecure writers throw our doubts into the wind and discuss our insecurities, give a little encouragement, etc. Visit Alex J. Cavanuagh, founder extraordinaire, and stop by the official website to join the fun!

This is that time of the year where time flies. It's not only May already, it's also 6PM now, and I usually do these in the morning or the night before. But I was busy with work. Blugh. So, this will be quick.

I hope those who did the A to Z Challenge enjoyed themselves and made friends. I enjoyed my vacation but had a cold, and then came back to mayhem, so I need another vacation. I'm two weeks away from applying to a job in the IT Department and praying they give me the job and the midpoint salary. Patience isn't my best virtue, but I'm hanging on.

How's everyone else doing?
