Random Thoughts: What if chapter titles were poems?

Strange things happen when I stay up late. I get "ideas." Some times those ideas are brilliant, some times they teeter on the edge of insanity. It's a crap shoot really, because you don't know which will occur.

So as I was reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone, I noticed the titles of the chapters. Some of them were really unusual. So I thought to myself, "These are rather poetic." That thought turned into, what if they were a poem?

So I wrote them all out and added a few connecting words so it would flow a little more smoothly. If I had more time, I'm sure I could rearrange and make something really amazing, but I'm lazy and out of coffee. So, with the titles in their respective orders, here is what I came up with:



Impossible to scare.
An unveiling of sorts:
a cranny, poison kitchen.
Elsewhere.
The Angel of Extinction;
with Black handprints
The Devil’s doorways
are hither-and-thither girl.
Please,
be something else entirely!
The graverobber
or a deadly bird of the soul.
The other door is a world apart
but battle not with monsters!
Not who, but WHAT--
True story!
Hope makes its own magic
like a piece of empty candy;
with infinite patience
Flying is easy but never peace.
 


A soft wrongness of
Not prey, but power
and attitude of prayer.
Starlight to the sun?
You are right.
Both place and person.
Preposterous?
What’s a day,
but the tongue of angels
To do else than kill?
A dream-lost?
Ungodly!
Blood will out, Almost like magic:
Ache and salt and allness.
Snap!
Whole again.
Sudden Evanescence
of pure Teeth
and sugared, The serpentine Madness.
Love is an element
Meant for children of regret…

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Book Blitz: Visions by Lisa Amowitz

Vision by Lisa Amowitz Release Date: 09/09/14 Spencer Hill Press
Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…
