Dolphin Cove & Update on Vampire Fic.

Okie dokie, so yesterday I had a nice little writing break and went to Dolphin Cove in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. What is Dolphin Cove you ask? *Gasp* I suggest you go ask Ben Stiller, Tito Jackson, Jane Seymour, Yendi Phillips, Hulk Hogan, Tori Spelling, and Martin Lawrence what it is, because they've all been there. ^_^ Or you could keep reading and I'll you that it's a nice place of water-based entertainment where you can interact with dolphins, sharks, sting rays, pirates, go on jungle trails, etcetera and so forth. Here are a few pics of the trip :-).



Beyond this bridge is a pirate who...well, I won't spoil it for you if you ever go. Just be careful! lol

Nurse Shark swimming about. Zoom is a good thing. I was not in the water for this one lol


My favourite pic! I just love how the sun glistens against the water and the nurse shark's back :-D


All in all it was a nice trip. Yes, no dolphin pics. At that time my camera was buried in my bag :-p but you should all definitely go and check it out. You will definitely enjoy the experience. The workers are friendly, engaging, and spot-on. I had no complaints ;-).


Update on YA vampire fic!

It's going great. I'm about 61,000 plus words in. So far it's dark, romantic, touching, inspiring--definitely a cross between the Christine Feehan 'Dark' series, Vampire Academy and Twilight. Definitely something that young adults AND adults will enjoy. I've been wanting to reveal what it's about for a long time, but due to the sheer volume of vampire fiction out there, I've decided to just let the idea stay concealed until it's completed. I may consider a small indie press for books in the future, like this one, so that I can have a bit of a breather on the marketing side. While I love marketing, I'm very busy and I let myself get toooo stressed when I'm working. It would be nice to have more help on that side. I'll definitely be combing the net and my twitter followers for wonderful presses out there. I tell ya, twitter is a powerful tool ;-).

I'll keep you guys updated :-)
