Totally offline …

Guys, because I’m moving back to the US this Monday (March 26th), I’ll be totally offline for the next three days or so. That means no Twitter, no blogging, no commenting on other blogs, no Facebook, no emails! I wonder how I’ll survive … hehe And the totally offline period starts right now … Anyway, I’ll holler when I get internet back ;) By the way, did you realize next time we talk to each other, I’ll be living in the US again? Yay! See you soon! Cheers,

Chatting with Avery Olive

Chatting with Avery Olive

Let me introduce you to Avery Olive and her book A STIFF KISS: Who knew kissing a corpse would change everything? Death always hits Xylia Morana too close to home, but she likes it that way.

The reason I’ve been MIA lately …

The reason I’ve been MIA lately …

Hey guys! Perhaps you didn’t notice I’ve been MIA because I try to show up on twitter every now and then, but I do feel like I’m missing out on everything lately. Most of you know I’m Brazilian, that I lived in the US from 2004 to 2009, came back to Brazil, and now I’m moving back to the US. And that’s all I’ve been doing lately. Packing and organizing everything for our move in one week!. If you guys ever moved before, you know how much work it involves. But now imagine moving to a different country! Oh, God, I can’t even start listing all the things I’ve been doing … selling cars, looking for new temporary apartment, packing… Read more »

The Lucky 7 Meme

The Lucky 7 Meme

The awesome Theresa Paolo at No Rhyme or Reason (by the way, love that blog name) tagged me on the Lucky 7 Meme yesterday. Thanks, Theresa! Here is what the tagged has to do: 1) Go to page 77 of your current MS 2) Go to line 7 3) Copy down the next 7 lines as they’re written–no  cheating 4) Tag 7 other writers 5) Let them know Well, honestly I’m working on many WIPs at the moment, tweaking here and there when I can … So, I chose the WIP that is closest to my heart at the moment, the one I’m revising (AGAIN!) right now, the one featured on this bloghop and this contest. It’s called DESTINY GIFT,… Read more »

Cover Love: My Super Sweet 16th Century

Cover Love: My Super Sweet 16th Century

Coming September 11th 2012 from Entangled Publishing: On the precipice of her sixteenth birthday, the last thing lone wolf Cat Crawford wants is an extravagant gala thrown by her bubbly stepmother and well-meaning father. So even though Cat knows the family’s trip to Florence, Italy, is a peace offering, she embraces the magical city and all it offers. But when her curiosity leads her to an unusual gypsy tent, she exits . . . right into Renaissance Firenze.  Thrust into the sixteenth century armed with only a backpack full of contraband future items, Cat joins up with her ancestors, the sweet Alessandra and protective Cipriano, and soon falls for the gorgeous aspiring artist Lorenzo. But when the much-older Niccolo starts sniffing… Read more »

First Blog Anniversary!

First Blog Anniversary!

I almost forgot it! Today is the first anniversary of my blog! My blog started very, very slow. Actually, I started a blogger blog on January 2011, but soon after (March/10) I switched over to wordpress. But today—128 posts, 1100 comments and almost 15,000 pageviews later—I can’t imagine not coming here and “talking” to you, guys … thanks for being here and reading all my craziness ;) I really appreciate it! Here’s to another year! And many others after that! Cheers,

If my dream came true

If my dream came true

Because every writer dreams of not only seeing their books on the shelves everywhere, but also as a movie on every screen around the globe. Isn’t it true? It sure is. The fabulous ladies Kyra Lennon at Write Here Write Now and Rachel at Writing on the Wall created this bloghop called WIP: The Movie. Here is what Kyra says: “Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to post a photo of the actors or actresses you would like to play the characters in your WiP if it were to be made into a movie. It can be just one character, or the entire cast! Secondly, we want you to soundtrack your movie! Head over to YouTube, and post a song that best describes one of… Read more »
