hello new site

So this is my first unnecessary post on yet another unnecessary site that allows me to express my thoughts on things most people don't.

But really, I'm trying to create a high class site in hopes that it can generate excitement around my writing and my book, My Blood Approves.

I'm currently making some edits on. I've decided (along with my teacher Tricia Johnson) that it moves too slowly at the beginning. So I'm trying to speed it up, by making edits.

Eventually, once I make the changes I need to make, I'll post some links for it.

I don't really know what I should I say on a professional site for writing. Obviously, I should talk about my book. But what is there to say?

After recently watching the hit film Scream 2 (the best in the Scream franchise perhaps?), I was thinking about my book. I think what I was attempting to do with my book (not necessarily succeeded at) was what Kevin Williamson did with Scream in comparison with other slasher flicks. He made them smart, self-aware, witty, but they were respectful and abided by the rules of the predecessors. That's what I wanted to do with My Blood Approves in comparison with Twilight and all the other vampire romance cluttering the book shelves.

Was I successful? You tell me, folks that actually read my book. All three of you. Well... how many people have read my book now? Wow. Seven people. That's the most anyone has ever read anything I wrote ever. For true.

So that is exciting. And they all loved it. Supposedly.

At any rate, I think this concludes my first post.
