~VACATION TIME!~

Guess where I am going?! I am going with some family members to celebrate a (not mine) birthday! I’ve never been there and am pretty excited! Do you have any tips for visiting Sin City??

UGH. I put a few books for sale up at B&N and you only get paid once you reach a $10 threshhold. At this rate, I’ll get a check in 2017. Does everyone just have Kindles or what?? Oh and apparently hell will freeze over before I get a review!! LOL *sigh*

Just in case there is that rare person out there that wants to check out my titles: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/nicole-castro?store=ebook&keyword=nicole+castro

Classics that are actually worth it?

Classics that are actually worth it?

My favorite book (and movie) is The count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately!!) I have not read a lot of the “classics”. I am trying to remedy this but when I read the blurbs, I have no interest in the subject matter. Dystopian future where we’re all being watched, rabbits talking, a really stupid college kid that wants a job with rye or something (I have read that one, unfortunately- hated it). What classics are REALLY worth reading? For the record, I am never reading War and Peace, so forget it. πŸ™‚
On my currently reading list: Pride and Prejudice, One flew over the cuckoo’s nest

I was trying to decide as to what my next project would be- writing a sequel to my House book or my Winner book (I tried once already, but it just wasn’t coming out right). I was leaning toward the House book since the first, The Appleton House, was so fun to write. Well, while plotting out the second book, the third and fourth came to mind. I even cast all three books.

Just when you are trying to squeeze blood out of a rock, you find a pint. We’ll see how it all comes together, but you have to start somewhere! GO WRITERS!!
