Okay, I'm having a name contest. I have two characters that I am questionable about their names. I've already connected the names with them, but I'm afraid that my readers may not like something. Let me explain. I have three "B" names, Brian, Blake, and Brandt. Now Blake has to stay, but Brandt is a side character and Brian, although he is not in the human form most of the time, I'm not sure about the name. I don't want there to be too many "B's". Now Brian didn't come into the thought of the book until later even though he is at the beginning. (kind of a long story) But I'm thinking that Brian's name needs to be different. Let me tell you about him. He is super sweet, is Em's real first boyfriend, he has a nice build but he is not big or super muscular, he is really cute, dark wavy hair cut short, brown eyes, but not tanned skin, he treats Em with total respect he is a real gentleman, he works hard for what he has, his mother raised him to be a gentleman because his father had a real temper, and he was protective of Em and sort of spoke for her. He would never put her in an uncomfortable situation and he is always one of those happy people, a love for life and appreciates it. Now that is the first name, this second one isn't really a change but I wanted to know what you think. I have Blake's sister who is really sort of goth but not, crazy looking, very much a smartass that loves to antagonize Blake as much as he does her. Her name is Sams, not Sam, but Sams. Do you like it or not. I love it, but I think her name may be a turn off. So I will review the names that are sent to me and if I like any of them then I will change them for the book. It will be hard, but I will make the change. Then, when I publish around November I will give out a free copy to the winner. I will run the contest from not until May 8th. Good Luck

I'm so mad, I've slept all day and missed out on some writing and pissed off my husband. He wanted to go to Indians game and I couldn't get my butt up and then I was ready to go and it was too late. How many of you writers out there have a difficult time living as a writer with a family. Families are so demanding. I wouldn't trade them for the world, but it makes it really difficult to get good writing time in.

Okay, so I haven't introduced Randy yet but he is Em's little irritating brother. I found myself getting mad at him as I was writing. I wonder how often that happens for writers. I mean it's one thing to really connect with your characters, but I was seriously mad at Randy for being a little brat. Brat being the nice word for what I'd really like to call him. Let me know if that has ever happened to you. I love good stories of writing issues.
Well I finally did some revisions on earlier chapters and just finished another chapter and a half. I'm going to take a nap and then get back to work. I think this weekend is going to be a good writing weekend. Cold weather, cozy pj's and my down comforter and I'm good to go.
Well I'm spending the day with Mason and Em, I hope they don't disappoint me. I love these two and I know you will too. Em is at a breaking point, but will she make it through. I guess when I post some chapters you will have to find out.

I can't wait to introduce Blake to everyone. I think you will be surprised by his attitude. He has a secret only Sams knows about, but soon Em will discover who he really is. Their explosive relationship is something that everyone has to read about. I haven't told you about Sams, but I think you will be pleasantly surprised. She is someone with a lot to offer and things to hide. Hope the book is out by November. You won't be disappointed. If your into the paranormal this is one book that can't be overlooked. And sorry, but now vamps or werewolves. But, don't let that stop you from a experiencing another world of paranormal. Can't wait!

The sexual tension is building up with Em. There is so much drama and male testosterone, it makes me want to get in there and battle with them. After I publish, I want you to tell me which guy you like the best. Mason, Brian, or Blake. I have my favorite, but it changes all the time. Must be nice to be Em and get to have some options although they aren't always the right ones. I think you will be surprised at the twists and unexpected turns Power Within shows. I can't wait to hear the response!

Em is a shy girl who has always been taken care of. Her world changes with the tragedy of the loss of a love. A new guy comes around wanting to protect her from all who might hurt her. Love comes along and she feels alive again. Then comes trouble. Blake, the guy she most despises is the key to unlock her power. Will she have the strength to channel him or is he to arrogant to be tamed? Find out and see what happens. I will give little hints as to what you should expect from her and the others. Be watching.
Book is coming along great. I think everyone will love it. It deals with death and a little bit of ghosts, transportation to a new world from the mind of two very different people and a triangular love problem. Watch for Em, Brian, Mason, and Blake. All will be on this site soon.
