FINALLY ALMOST FINISHED-RANT

Jamaica 2008
I am FREAKING excited....only today and tomorrow left to get through and I am finally finished with graduate school. This process has been such a long one for me. After getting laid off from my 2nd placed dream job( I worked at 4Kids, so free toy swag I miss you) it was time to get that 1st place dream job and since I enrolled in grad school in 2009 it's been nothing but a process. Getting into school, finding money to pay for it, getting accepted into the education program, taking a two semester break because I had a baby and almost paid for it with my life due to MORON MALE doctors (thanks to get Great female doctor who like totally saved me. Blood clots KILL), and now finally finally I am at the finish line.

I really can't wait to be a teacher, but I have two weeks off before school here in New York is back in session. So for the next two weeks I will be working on all the book/stories that I've started and haven't finished. Hopefully 2014 will see me publishing at least two books and a copy of short stories.

As hard as life is on me I feel time to time...It's totally moments like this where I am happy about who I am and what I've been through. I've written so many interesting stories that I've put out there for the world to see and I am glad that I feel I have more to give. Even if they aren't read, at myself in the mirror and say "Girlie, you did great. Now bust out that pen/pencil and write some more.

But enough of my rant. I will be pushing even harder now to get my projects done and finally finding a way greater way to promote myself as a writer. OH yeah so I've also totally decided to just stick to writing eBooks, due to the fact that I haven't... really sold anything on POD and plus I am trying to be GREEN regarding my publishing. But anyway THANKS for bearing with my barely there blog updates, but look forward to updates all new next week.


Anyway.....Catch you later and don't forget to visit me at https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/ShamaraSDavis and download one of my books.

CHRISTMAS SHOPPING-BOOKS & eBOOKS

So Christmas is almost upon us once again and you're thinking of gifts. Why not give that person you're thinking of some eBooks. Here are a couple of suggestions:

This is my latest books Practically Fiction. My first and only anthology at the moment. This books features ten short stories that I've written and have put out there individually, but to save time and effort I've place them all in one book

What Happened to Kerbie Walobee? was released earlier this year. 
It's a great books for preteens and young adults. Moving into a new town can bring all kinds of new adventures but sometimes those new things can get you into a lot of trouble.
 What Happened to Kerbie Walobee?
















Another great books is from bestseller Rick Riordan: The House of Hades. If you're children are fans of Percy Jackson then they will love Riordan's latest book because I know I do. The book takes up where his previous work left off. Percy and Annabell are trapped in Tarterus and it's up to their friends to get them out.

 The House of Hades

One more from the works of Rick Riordan: The Son of Sobek. This short story introduces two of Riordan's  most popular characters, Carter Kane (Kane Chronicles) and Percy Jackson (Percy Jackson and the Olympians) to each other. From the cover it looks extremely exciting and I would highly recommend it because I love this guys work.












A great series and so to be movie this
Divergent Series Complete Box Set would make an amazing gift for a teen-young adult reader. Also if they haven't already read the books or seen the last two movies The Hunger Games Trilogy Boxset would also make an amazing gift. So if they enjoy distopia these are the books for you. Both are available on Amazon

KOREAN DRAMEDIES ADDICTION

Hey All!!!

So you might be wondering what I've been doing all this time since I haven't updated the site in a while. I am very sorry for that since I remember me say that I would try and update it every two days, but that didn't work out, so now I am going to update you on my latest ADDICTION, which are Korean Dramedies.

Are you scratching your head asking "What's a Dramedy?" Well a dramedy is a combination of the word drama and comedy. Shows that have awesome comedic moments in them, but also drama like a soap opera, but without all the old bags. So for the past couple days I've been watching a lot of Korean dramedies on NETFLIX and they are so good. I didn't expect to get caught up in them but they get you so involved. Sure I am totally late since most of the series I am watching only had one season to tell the whole story an they were all aired between 2007-2010, but who cares if I am late to the party....At least I made it and here we go.

So here are all the ones I've viewed and a loved so far:


My Girlfriend is a Gumiho also known as My Girlfriend is a Nine Tailed Fox. This series had me laughing the whole time. The main characters featured in the picture to the right are played by Lee Seung-gi and Shin Min-a. Lee Seung-gi character Cha Dae Woong gets into a crazy relationship with Mi Ho, Shin Min-a character after she saves him from getting hurt by a wild pig. Mi Ho's character becomes attach to Cha Dae and threatens to eat him if he didnt do what she ask. Over the series their relationship develops, but who is the handsome guy waiting in the lurches to steal Mi Ho from Cha Dae?

No Min-woo who plays Park Dong Joo is the other character that totally kept my attention the whole time in the series. Not only does his character have history with Mi Ho, but that history might lead to an end that you may not expect. So on a scale of 1 to 10 this show gets 7.5


Next is my other favorite Playful Kiss. This series follows a clumsy girl name Oh Ha-ni (Jung So-min) who is at the bottom of her class. She has the bad luck of falling for the best student in the school Baek Seung-jo (Kim Hyung-joong). But when she finally confesses her feelings for him he tells her that he doesn't like stupid girls.


This series was great to watch. Due to the fact that you would think after getting embrassed in front of the whole school that she and faith would give up on her love, but no. After her house is destroyed in an earthquake Oh Ha-ni and her father moves in with his long lost friend and his family.  To Oh Ha-ni's disbelief the eldest son of this family is none other than her extreme crush Baek Seung-jo. 

The drama between the two plays out well enough for you to stay interested to the very end to see what happens to them in the end. So on a scale of 1 this show got a 8

Next up is Boys Over Flowers 

I have to stay out of all of them I think this one is my ULTIMATE favorite and not because Kim Hyung-joong  is in it, but because the story has so many turns its totally crazy. Hardworking Geum Jan-di (Ku Hye-sun) attends the exclusive Shinhwa High School by a scholarship she gets because of an incident. She finds her shallow, privileged classmates unbearable, especially the notorious F4. Rich, handsome, and arrogant, Goo Jun-pyo (Lee Min-ho), Yoon Ji-hoo (Kim Hyun-joong), So Yi-jung (Kim Bum), and Song Woo-bin (Kim Joon) are the kings of the school and no one, not even the teachers, dare challenge them. No one, that is, except Jan-di. Angry at their rudeness, Jan-di tells off F4 leader Jun-pyo, bringing a world of trouble upon herself. The proud and persistent Jun-pyo falls hard for feisty Jan-di, but she shares a connection with the quiet, sensitive Ji-hoo. On a scale of 1 to 10 this gets a 9

So I am currently watching You Are Beautiful


Go Mi Nyu (Park Shin-hye) stayed at an orphanage with her twin brother Go Mi Nam (Played by Park Shin-hye too) since childhood, when their father passed away. After her brother has become a music idol, now Mi Nyu with a name Gemma lived in junior nun dorm to reach her dream of nun. Her idol twin brother Mi Nam, successfully win the "A*N Entertaiment" vocal auditions for musical band "A*N.JELL", but Mi Nam must leave in order to correct his botched plastic surgery in United States. Ma Hoon Yi(Mi Nam's manager, played by Kim In Kwon) approaches Mi Nyu's/Gemma's to pose as Mi Nam while he recovers, Mi Nyu's/Gemma's is against it at first, but agrees in order to fulfill her way of finding their mother, Mi Nyu/Gemma's posing as Mi Nam join the band(A*N.JELL) and meets its members, that remembered her(Mi Nyu/Gemma) the three statue on junior nun dorm: Hwang Tae Kyung (Jang Geun Suk), Kang Shin Woo (Jung Yong-hwa) and Jeremy (Lee Hongki).

This series is great so far and I can seriously give it a 10 out of 10. I love the drama between a four characters. Go Mi Nyu who plays her brother Go Ni Nam most of the series and Tae Kyung have and up and down relationship that isn't made any easier because Shi Woo and Jeremy falls for her after they learn she is a girl. But there is so much more drama behind this series and it keeps you laughing.
