DEAR SONY

DEAR SONY,

I know that you are nervous over the recent hacking of your company's system and that there have been threats made towards the company and towards movie theaters that would dear to show "The Interview", but I really wanted to see this movie and from what I've read you have pulled it's release.  I have a wonderful suggestion that would help you out and cheer up the public, why not just leak the movie to the internet for all to see. You would not be releasing it so to speak and who so ever wants to see it can view it free of charge and write reviews about it so that the MORONS who don't know what COMEDY is can see that this movie will not all of a sudden make the public go "Yeah I think we should do that." But this is only the suggestion of one person who is a fan of both Seth Rogen and James Franco. I hope you come up with something good, since it would a waste of millions of dollars for your company to just lock the movie up somewhere. At the end of the day I support the right for this movie to be released and those that are lacking a sense of humor should go hide in a closet somewhere because the world is filled with people who make fun of politicians and leaders of nations they don't agree with. 

So Sony don't give into FEAR....and LEAK the movie.

THE RECEPTIONIST RELEASE

Hi All,

So it's been a great time for me. I've been hard at work trying to publish my two latest works and I've recently released one of them and I wanted to tell you all about it. "The Receptionist" is now available at Smashwords.com.

I am totally in love with this story, because it's the first time I am trying my hand at something that might fit an older audience, even though it is intended for teens to adults. I really like the character in her because through out most of the story she doesn't have a name and you don't get to learn it until way later in the story.

I was thinking that people could just imagine the receptionist that they know and picture her in this character's place. The thought of finding your dream job only for it to turn out to be a nightmare and then to have it get even worse when someone you don't want to take interest in  you does, is what pushes the story.

I really hope at you all love it and if not love, I at least hope that you are entertained and that you enjoy what you read. Also look out for names that might look familiar.


ON SALE NOW!!!!!!

NEW PROJECT IN MIND-NaNoWriMo

Hey People,

So November is right around the corner and as you may or may not know that's NaNoWriMo is a month away. I have been thinking of starting a new project which would be the fifth installment of my series The Adventures of Marco and Carla. Here is the kicker, I have two other projects on my plate that I still have to finish and have published by the end of the year, and two other projects that I had started and never finished. The projects that i started and never finished, I've decided to revisit and attempt to finish them up, but I really want to write the fifth book to my series.

It's been over a year since I've published anything regarding the series and I want to keep the ideas that I have fresh and start the whole writing process.  But here is the thing if I start this new project then the other projects I will would suffer and be placed on the back burner once again. I am so eager to do all this writing, but at the same time I feel that I won't have the time to give my all to each and every project. Doing two stories at a time is hard enough, but four and then taking on a fifth is insane.

So in writing this I came to the conclusion that for the month of November, I will focus on the two projects that are still not finished and work even harder to have the other two that are "supposedly" done published. I say supposedly because I always find something that I might want to change, plus these are the two projects I wanted illustrated. I might hit up Fiverr.com and see if I can get some great illustrations. 

SO!! Do you have any projects you are working on now?

What will you writing for NaNoWriMo?

REVISITING OLD PROJECTS

Greetings All,

So I've been thinking of what should get done first regarding my books and stories and have been revisiting alot of my projects that have fallen to the way side. I started on the edits for The Receptionist and so far so go. I am hoping to have it done by the end of the year, like I said in my previous article.


I am really happy with it so far, since a lot of people that have read the rough version of it really liked and wanted to know what happend to the characters involved in this piece. Happily I will say that this piece of work is more towards the teen and the adult reading group, because of some of the content. I am trying to be dual minded as far as writing things for kids and writing for adults also. Even though I love writing for children, I don't want to close myself off as a writer, so I am exploring as far as writing other things.


So, I have about four to five projects on hand for you all to read and hopefully I can upload a sample of one or a couple of stories on my personal website, Shamara Davis Books for you all to download and enjoy. Also I really want to see if I can get feedback, but I am kind of apprehensive about placing all my new work out there since they might end up on another website.

Anyway lookout for the titles: The Receptionist, Altered:Genesis and Witchling (maybe a series) soon.

It's Been A While

So it's been a while since I've last written anything, or given any updates as far as my latest books and short stories are concerned. Well here is the latest, I have finished both The Receptionist and Altered: Genesis.

They were both scheduled to be released in late August, but due to some setbacks both projects were finished late and there are still no illustrations for either story. I am hoping to have both of them illustrated and published before the end of the year. Also, I've started to write the 5th book for the Adventures of Marco and Carla series. I have a working title and so far the story is coming together and I hope to have most of the also done by the end of the year.

But for now please continue to visit my blog. I will start updating it regularly and also please visit my new website Shamara Davis Books . Please continue to support me by buying a copy of any of my books or reading any of my free books which are available on Smashwords.com

Volcano Erupts in Japan

So if you haven't heard Mount Ontake erupted in Japan on September 28th, without warning sending volcanic ash into the sky.  More than 30 hikers were fear dead, but were found unconscious, suffering from cardiac and respiratory arrest. Happily everyone survived. My prayers and heart goes out to those in my second favorite country in the world.

Stay strong Japan.

HAPPY 450TH BIRTHDAY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

If you didn't already know English lovers everywhere have been celebrating the birthday of one of history's best play writes Sir William Shakespeare. Shakespeare has brought us many wonderful and tragic plays such as, Othello, Macbeth, A Midsummer Nights Dream, and Hamlet.

I can say for one that I love his work and find that I draw upon them sometimes in my writing and even my teaching to show how his work is still relevant. I use it in my teaching to demonstrate that all the issues that we face today are issues that Shakespeare wrote about long before anyone.

So in honor of his birthday why not pick up one of his books and read to your hearts content. 

Book Update

So yesterday I finally finished typing up book one of my new sci-fi-distopia novella. It has been sitting around since June 2013 waiting to be typed up, but everything (school, job, life) got in the way. But happily I did that yesterday and now I am headed into editing and see if everything I've done so far works. Also on a happy note, I will be handing off a copy to a good friend of mine graphic designer and Illustrator Ian WIllis.

Ian and I will be collaborating on possible putting some illustrations in my latest work and working on future projects together. Hopefully I will have a concept to show you of the book cover for my new book and also the title. I really didn't say anything about it because I don't know if I want to keep the title, since I was in Barnes and Nobles sometime ago and found a book there with the exact same title. SO, I am thinking I might ad something to it so that at least it's somewhat different.

Well if you would like to view more of Ian Willis work check out his LinkedIn profile by clicking HERE.  Also stay tuned for more information about the progress of this project.

RANDOM THOUGHT

Hey everyone,

So I had a random thought while in bed. Thought: At anytime do you feel like you are losing yourself? Well I think I've been feeling that way for the past couple weeks. I've been so unmotivated and I find it such a pain to even move to get things I need done. I've been sitting on my book for the past couple months and I've started typing what I have up so I can hand it off to the illustrator so that he can start on pulling the graphics together, but I just keep typing some and saying that I will get back to it when I have time...

As a writer, I feel that this feeling, this whatever it is, could be the total death of my writing. I usually have a bunch of ideas swarming around in my head, ready to be put on paper, but lately that's not happening for me. I want to know if anyone else has had this feeling? I am hoping that this is just a thing right now so that I can get back on my game. I haven't really written anything as far as a short story since February and for me that's a damn long time to not have anything ...AAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGG. For those that are reading this you're probably saying it's writer's block or something, but I really don't feel like it is. It's just no motivation...I need to get back on my game and I don't want to force myself, because I feel if I do I will end up writing crap. Well I hope that I find new inspiration and get my motivation back, and get my a** in gear and at least post about three short stories soon.

OH WELL lets see where this goes. Anyway don't forget to pick up my latest book "Practically Fiction" at Smashwords: Practically Fiction

COLLABORATION IN THE WORKS

So on Saturday I took my son to a birthday party for my friend's daughter and happened to bring one of my books, What Happened to Kerbie Walobee? which I gave to my friend's wife as a gift. After leaving the party and coming home my friend text me a few hours later to tell me that he was reading the book and he was interested in collaborating on a book with me...He's an illustrator by the way and I can't wait to work with him.

I think putting some artwork in your books bring it to life for your readers, if you're writing for children and also have a want to illustrate your work. They are able to see the image of the character that you've thought of; even though I think you should totally put the character a couple pages back so that they can build their own image and then let them see if what they thought of looks like what the artist drew.

Here is some of Ian Willis's work: (All rights to these pictures belong to the artist)....Ian has a degree in design and his work is amazing....Check it out

GEMMA'S HAPPY VALENTINE'S

I'm setting here in the laundry and this whole scene just popped into my head so I thought I would share it with you. It kind of makes me feel bad since it reminds me of a title I have yet to finish, but will happily get to it when I am inspired again.

It's really hard since all I have to write is the end, but at the same time the ending can also make or break your story..but either way I hope you enjoy my little piece inspired also by the upcoming Valentine's Day.

GEMMA' S HAPPY VALENTINE'S

"I'm not going anywhere with you," she told him sternly, "you think because you bring me some cheap roses and an apology everything is okay?"

"I don't know how many times I can say I'm sorry." He said to her with insincere tears in his eyes. " I really don't know what happened sweetie, one minute were talking and the next thing I remember is you standing at the door screaming as I woke up."

" listen Troy, I want you and your bullshit gone from my door before I call the police."

"The police? Why would you need to do that? I just want to talk to you and start over."

" And I've told you I don't want anything to do with you, so you can go back to Elease and see if she wants your company."

"Dammit Gemma," Troy yelled as he pounded on the front door. "Why do you have to be such a bitch? It only happened one time, one time. Open the damn door!"

"Get the hell out of here Troy, we're done and don't give me that one time shit. What about Suzie, Audrey, LaShawna, huh? Were they all one time mistakes too?" She screamed through the door. "You think I didn't know!"

Troy knew he had been caught and nothing he could say would get Gemma to open the door.

"Fine you weren't much anyway,"he said as he throw the roses at the door and walked down the driveway.

"Is he gone?" The half dressed man asked.

"I'm sorry about that," she said to her guest. "Yeah he is gone," she said as she checked the security screen. Some guys just don't get when it's over."

Eric walked over to her and held her tightly against his bare chest, "well I'm glad you're here with me. Happy Valentine's Day," he said then kissed her deeply.
