I Don’t Know Anymore // My Thoughts // Rant // Personal

Posted 21 September, 2016 by katheryn13 in Updates / 6 Comments

So hey.
Long time no speak, eh?
Today I kinda wanna talk about…stuff. You know. Nothing serious, just stuff that’s been bothering me of late. Such as twitter, blogging, writing, among other bits and pieces.
Mostly I’m annoyed. I have gotten, more than once, to the point where I just want to quit Twitter cold turkey. Which, I’ve tried. It’s fucking hard.
It’s not just the obnoxious hashtags and the shit people throw at others because they have an opposing opinion, it’s also that when I tweet people I think of as friends, I get no response, or when I do, it’s minimal words. And some of them are people I’ve ‘known’ online for YEARS. It’s like they couldn’t give a shit, and want me to go away. Fine. And yeah, maybe It’s a bit of a pity party I’m in right now, but occasionally I get the impression I could just delete my account and not one person would notice. 
So there’s that. Like, I don’t know who’s my friend anymore. Yeah, I have maybe one other person on twitter that replies enthusiastically to me, but the others? Are we friends? I don’t know. And I HATE not knowing where I stand. These other people are more popular, cooler, have better lives than I do, and I’m back to feeling like a child wanting to fit in with the cool crowd. I know I can’t please everyone, but is it so much to be respected and acknowledged? 
I’m not an attention seeker unless I’m feeling like shit, and hell, would like some one to say “hey”. Just to let me know I exist. To remind me I’m not being ignored. Because damn, it feels like that a lot. 
I become the world’s most insecure person when I get ignored. Because what else are they doing if they SEE my tweets, my questions, and not responding? Ugh. I hate feeling like this. I didn’t even feel this bad at school. Probably because I knew no one liked me, so there was no point. And then when I got friends, at least I could see their reaction to me being around. Not like online social sites. You can’t SEE,  you can’t HEAR, you can only READ and sometimes when someone doesn’t TWEET or type anything, it’s like…what’s the point of me trying?
I realise this post isn’t going anywhere productive, but I just wanted, needed, to rant and get things off my chest, cos when I do it on twitter, I feel even worse. 
It’s also why I haven’t been blogging much lately. I also get the ‘why bother’ mood because I only seem to get any hits when it’s something ‘popular’ and that’s like…on a blog tour or something. I haven’t been writing reviews because I’ve been doing video end of month wrap ups, and y’know what, I get more of a feeling of accomplishment on youtube than anywhere else. Even if no one comments, I can see the views, and considering I’m no looker, I’m always surprised anyone watches them.
I must honestly rid of this insecurity because it’s also crossing over to my writing. No, not that I don’t think I’m any good – though I do have those moments- but when I post the chapters on Wattpad or somewhere, and get no views, it’s  slightly heartbreaking. And yeah, I know it shouldn’t be, because many people don’t share their work, but I like to, I like confirmation that I’m not a total failure, and maybe that’s wrong. But I don’t care. 
I can’t do things secretly, because I need that acknowledgement, that sense of ‘you’re good at what you do’ that I never used to get. And when someone says something I’ve done is good, it literally makes my day. It puts a smile on my face, and lets me know I’m not a completely waste of space. 
Of course I know I shouldn’t feel this way. God knows it’s the worst thing to feel. But it’s there, always, in the back of my mind, like a disease eating away at me.
So basically, what I’m trying to say is, I hate feeling like I’m not noticed. I think I used my quota of being able to handle it back at school and college, and then I got friends online and I got maybe used to being noticed. Now…it feels like it’s going back to square one. 
I don’t expect anyone to care, or feel sorry for me – cos there’s plenty of that on this end – I just wanted it out there. Like a diary. A very public diary. 
The end.
-Kat

p.s. reading this back really made me sad.

(COVER NOT FINAL)

Ren and the Blue Hands
Set in the fictional 16th Century Calico Isles, Ellen Phethean’s YA novel, Ren and The Blue Hands, sees teenaged Ren drawn into a world of intrigue, passion and politics.
Betrayal by your friends is heart breaking, betrayed by your own heart is devastating.
In a world on the cusp of change, Ren, a Blue Hand dyer, is plucked from the dye sheds to become lady’s maid up at Barrow Hall. At first she’s excited about her future, but through her mistress, Lady Lilac, she becomes entangled in a plot which threatens the dye industry that has supported her family and the islands for generations. When the secret organisation, the Mazards are exposed, Ren must think and act for herself. She’s torn between helping the conspirators, loyalty to her roots and her love for fellow conspirator Bark. Driven by passion into danger, where right and wrong are hard to tell, only a terrible event can help her see more clearly.
#bluehandsnovel
On a personal level it’s about love, loyalty and how to do the right thing. On a wider level it explores political themes of power and espionage as factions struggle to control the winds of change.
It’s due to be published on 2nd November by Red Squirrel Press, it’s the first book in a trilogy
  1. Ren and the Blue Hands
  2. Ren and the Blue Cloth (working title)
  3. Ren in Samara (working title)

 

Ellen Phethean wrote Wall, a teen novel in poems, set in the Byker Wall estate, based on her interviews and workshops in the east of Newcastle while Writer in Residence for Seven Stories, Newcastle in 2003/4. Wall was published by Smokestack Books, 2007.

She followed that up with another teen novel in poems Hom, set in the West End of Newcastle, published online as a weekly blog, still available at her website.

Her latest young adult novel, Ren and the Blue Hands, in prose, is launched in November 2016 by Postbox Press (an imprint of Red Squirrel Press). Inspired by real historical events, but set in the fictional 16th Century Calico Isles, Ren and the Blue Hands, was Long listed for the Times/Chicken House Children’s Fiction Competition 2012: ‘A vividly imagined historical background, and interesting mixture of politics and romance. Ren is a courageous female hero whom readers will empathise with and root for.’

She’s a sound artist, playwright and poet too – her first poetry collection Breath, 2009 Flambard, was shortlisted for the London New Poetry Award 2010.  Her second collection, Portrait of the Quince as an Older Woman, 2014, Red Squirrel Press was a New Writing North Read Regional choice for 2014.

What inspired you to write this?

First of all, years ago, I came up with a scene and a character in a writing workshop. A young woman finding a secret note. It seemed to be about a mystery and I kept writing scenes – I wrote about young women working together in a dark shed and singing beautifully. I imagined a nasty villain when I was given the word Grist. So it all began with bits and pieces, and all seemed set in some historical past.

Then I read about the real struggle in the Dye industry in the 16th century, when the Guilds in Europe were resisting a new dye, Indigo, coming in from India. They called it the Devil’s Dye – and that became the core of the story that pulled all my disparate bits of scenes and characters together. My women workers in a shed were Dyers, the Blue Hands. But I knew their resistance to the new dye was bound to failure, so I began to think about when change is inevitable, how and why do people adapt? I gave these dilemmas to my main character Ren, who’s caught up in the middle of these big historical changes, and has to deal with it on a personal level.

Is this a fantasy?

No, because it’s based on real events and all the technology and clothes are based on 16th life, but I’ve taken liberties with reality, and have created my own alternative world. I’m aiming for emotional rather than literal truth. It makes the book difficult to categorise by genre – it’s a historical drama, but fictional, some call it fantasy because I made up the country, but that suggests dragons and elves – there’s no magic or non-human characters. There’s a love story at its heart, so it’s a romance too, but it’s also about political struggle. Try and sum up that in three words!

Did you have to do research?

I used many historical sources for help and ideas. It’s been the greatest fun imaginable making up the world, my 16th Century cosmos. Characters have natural names like Bark and Moss and Count Saffron. The blue dye comes from the Shebble Shell. The group of isles where Shebble shell is found are The Calico Isles where the story is set. Braymer is the country that exports the wool and yarn that gets dyed by Shebble shell.

The workers on Calico are organised by their Gild. The different classes of society are subject to sumptuary laws (which were real laws detailing who could wear what fabric and colour of clothing) – in my world only the wealthiest nobles are allowed to wear the unique Shebble blue dyed cloth, while workers in the dye industry get Blue Lung or Shebble Pox, and their hands are stained blue.

I’d done an MA in Theatre Studies, and had explored the traditions of Shakespearean theatre, so I included a Travelling Theatre troupe called The Chancellor of Braymer’s Men who come to Calico to perform for the May Day Revels and stir things up. In the past there have been Dye Wars. The time of peaceful monopoly of Shebble is about to change.

Where is it set?

In my imagination, the Calico Isles are a sort of combination of mediterranean islands with elements of Cornwall. The country of Braymer is a colder, more northerly island, not a million miles away from Britain. Samara, the third major country referred to, is a mash-up of north african/middle eastern countries.

Was it a dragged out process?

Yes! I’ve been writing the story off and on for about 10 years, and it’s only in the last four or five years that I really got down to working out how the story fitted together, and filling it out. It took two more books to get the story to a satisfactory end and I still haven’t quite finished the third although I know where it’s going. I haven’t decided on the actual fate of my main character in the final chapter!

I put an early draft in for the Times Chicken House Children’s Novel competition in 2012 and it was long listed which gave me a confidence boost, and encouraged me to keep working and finish it all.

Do you have any favourite authors?

Two of my favourite YA authors are Ursula Le Guin, particularly The Wizard of Earthsea, and the Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness. Not only are they great writers of stories that grab you and you can’t put down, but they also deal with real, serious issues that people have to deal with: moral dilemmas, how to choose the right decision in difficult circumstances, complex characters who are both good and bad. They set their stories in the other worlds, but that allows the reader to reflect back on the real world. If I could achieve that in my writing, I’d be happy.


Thank you to Ellen for the interview, and to all those reading this, thank you. Check out the #UKYACX tag on twitter to follow posts on the authors attending the event on the 17th September in Newcastle!!

Posted 25 August, 2016 by katheryn13 in Readathons, Updates, YA / 0 Comments

Hello everyone. So this week 22nd to 28th August I’m participating in the #boutofbooks 17 readathon challenge. It’s now half way and I just wanted to let you know my progress so far.

Spotlight/Interview: WENDY HIGGINS #BookBloggers #NewReleases #NA

Posted 18 August, 2016 by katheryn13 in Book Promo, Interviews, New Adult, Sci-Fi, Spotlight, Updates / 0 Comments

Amber Tate believes the worst thing she’ll suffer in life is dealing with the unrequited love she feels for her brother’s best friend, Rylen Fite. She also believes war is something unfortunate that happens places far, far away from her rural Nevada town. She’s wrong on both counts.

When an unknown organization meticulously bombs major cities in the United States and across the globe, a trickle-down effect spreads to remaining towns at an alarming speed—everything from food and water sources to technology and communications are compromised. Without leadership, the nation is split between paralysis and panic, but Amber isn’t one to hide or watch helplessly. She’s determined to put her nursing skills to use, despite the danger, even if it means working alongside the man she can never have.
In this first instalment of NY Times bestselling author, Wendy Higgins’s debut New Adult series, a frighteningly realistic apocalyptic America is brought to life, entwined with searing romantic tension that will leave you eager for more.

GOODREADS

PUBLISHER: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
OUT NOW!

Hey everyone, I wanted to do something different today. So it is an honour to be able to say I got to interview the wonderful, successful author Wendy Higgins. She’s written works such as the Sweet Evil series, The Great Hunt and See Me. Her latest novel, Unknown, is out now, and you can find links above with the description.
So without further ado, here we go.

  • Hi Wendy, it’s great to finally get to talk to such a wonderful author! How are you doing? I’ll say first that I really enjoyed the Sweet Evil series. So I was looking through the other books you’ve written, and you’ve written about romance, demons, fairies, magic, and soon an apocalypse (with your new novel Unknown), is there anything you’d really love to write about but for whatever reason you can’t? 
~ I would love to write something based on historical events, like during the civil war, but no story idea has hit me for anything like that. Maybe someday! 🙂
  • What is your least favourite part of the publishing / writing process?
~ Plotting. Coming up with cool twists and turns is so difficult for me. Either it hits me out of the blue, or it doesn’t.
  • I know that many writers struggle with certain parts of writing. For me, it’s action. Is there a certain type of scene that’s harder for you to write than others?
~Same. The action scenes are very difficult for me. Give me a kissing scene any day! 
  • Were you one of those authors that tried fan fiction before writing original or did you just dive right in?
~I never wrote book fan fiction. In seventh grade I wrote New Kids On the Block (NKOTB) fan fiction, but that was it, hahahaha.
  • Since you’ve dipped your toes in both categories, which would you say suits you better: young adult or new adult? Also if you had to stay with one genre forever, which do you think you’d choose? 
~This is a tough question, because both have felt similar to me. The only difference is that I’ve used more mature language and detail in the Unknown books. I have loved writing for teens, but I feel myself gravitating in an older direction at the moment. 
  • How important are names to you in your books? Do you choose the names based on liking the way it sounds or the meaning? Do you use the name generators online? 
~I don’t pay any attention to name meanings. I try to choose interesting names that suit the character’s personalities with how they sound. I’ve browsed many baby name sites for inspiration over the years.
  • If you could have written any book in the world, what would it be? 
~Easy. Harry Potter. Love.
  • Okay, so characters often find themselves in sticky situations. When was the last time you found yourself in a situation that was hard to get out of and what did you do?
~Hahaha, I’m so boring. Imagine a soccer mom who works in her pajamas. The stickiest situation I get myself into these days is when I open the honey jar. I did lea quite an interesting life before I was married though. Like the time when I was a flight attendant and our apartment caught on fire in Jersey City, and I had to jump six feet from our window to a fire escape as windows blew open and sprayed us with glass (we were three stories up). Thankfully everyone made it out alive (seven of us flight attendants lived together). It was nuts. I was twenty-one.
  • You recently went to Scotland and Ireland, and I’m sure you’ve been to other countries: If you could have any other accent in the world, which would you pick? 
~English, London area. It’s just so lovely to me, hence the reason I gave Kaidan a London accent in the Sweet books.
  • And the last question for you: Are you working on anything else at the moment?
~I take the summers off from writing, but I will begin Unrest (Unknown #2) as soon as school starts back in September! 🙂

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Wendy Higgins is the USA Today and NY Times bestselling author of the SWEET EVIL series from HarperTeen, the high fantasy duology THE GREAT HUNT, and her independently published Irish Fantasy SEE ME.
After earning a Creative Writing degree from George Mason University and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Radford, Wendy taught high school English until achieving her dream job as a full-time writer.
Wend lives on the Eastern Shore of Virginia with her husband, daughter, son, and little doggie Rue.

Thanks again to Wendy, for agreeing for me to throw questions at you. 🙂 And don’t forget to check out her other books if you haven’t already.
I wish all the luck and success for Unknown! 😀

What’s this? What’s this? There’s something very wrong! #bookbloggers

Posted 17 August, 2016 by katheryn13 in Blog Talks, Updates / 0 Comments

Haha, got your attention! You like my Jack Skellington reference? No, but seriously, this is horrible. I’m in serious trouble. Reading wise.
I’ve not finished a book in 7 weeks! 
I mean, yes, I’ve read a few pages here and there, but of DIFFERENT books. It’s seriously getting me down. I think me reading 9 books in June properly ruined me.

So instead I’ve been editing my WIP, the one which I finished the first draft of a few years ago. It’s going…okay. So far. I’ve also been watching Netflix. 
And I mean. A lot. Of. Netflix.
I’ve been watching Gilmore Girls. I’m on to season 4 now and I must say, I can’t stop talking/thinking/dreaming of it. I’ve also been rewatching Once Upon A Time. Because, yknow, why not? 
The show is like crack for me. Anyway, besides THAT, I’ve been rereading bits of Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson (cos usually contemporaries get me out of slumps…) and I’ve been sort of rereading An Ember In The Ashes. I’m supposed to be in a buddy read with @emmmmychan on twitter, but again, that’s kind of a lost cause as I’ve been slow. Slow as fuck. (excuse me. I’m frustrated, okay?)
Of course I’d fall into the slump of hell given that I recently acquired a shit ton of books. If you saw my latest book hauls, I have like…35 odd new books to read. On top of the 40 odd I had to start with. I know to some people that’s not a lot, but my god, my shelves are bursting at the…hinges? 
I don’t really have a point to this post, but I felt like I needed/wanted/should post something, since I’m also out of ideas for booktube. Not to mention energy. I’ve just had no enthusiasm, energy, motivation or inspiration, to do just about ANYTHING. Short of go to my nieces on the days I’m supposed to (like prison visiting rights, it’s Monday/Tuesday or nothing …-.-) I go nowhere. Not that that’s much different to usual, but it’s been worse since I got back from SDCC. I’ve been in constant ‘can’t be bothered’ syndrome for weeks. Ugh. It doesn’t usually last this long. 
ANYway, enough babbling on about my problems. LOL. Tell me about your days?

#SBPT | Week 7: Brooke from The Cozy Little Book Nook @brookeevans2001 @TheBookBratz

Posted 14 August, 2016 by katheryn13 in Blog Talks, Blogging Challenges, Fun, Interviews, Updates, YA / 0 Comments

LCnv16E7 (1)

Hey everyone! We’re nearly at the end of this fun tour organised by The Book Bratz. Again, thanks for having me! This week we’re talking to Brooke as she does the Epic Reads book tag. Enjoy! 🙂

 


Hi Everyone! I’m Brooke from The Cozy Little Book Nook and I’m so happy to be able to blog here on Kat’s blog today! So my post today is the Epic Reads Tag which is just questions about books (duh). Anyway, without too much of my blabbering, let’s get into the post!

 

  1. If you could invite one author and one of their fictional characters to tea, who would you invite and what would you serve them?
Ok I talked about this in another of these SBPT posts but I will talk about it again because I love it so much. Kiera Cass and her character, America Singer. I would love to talk with Kiera Cass about the thought process behind the book, how she came up with the idea, etc… Also America Singer is such a force to reckon with and a role model to like everyone. As to what I’ll serve… I guess cookies and coffee (because I dislike tea).

 

  1. What book do you wish the author would write a prequel for?
For some reason, i don’t have strong feelings about any authors having a prequel for their book. I don’t know if it’s just that I don’t want to (which actually is highly unlikely) or that I’ve just read so many books these last couple of weeks that I can’t remember any of them.

 

  1. Which two characters (NOT from the same book) do you think would make a good couple?
Two characters that would make a good couple and not from the same book. Taylor from The Way to Game the Walk of Shame and Finn from Summer of Sloane. Even though the two books both ended up with them having a happy ending, I feel like the two can really balance each other out with their personalities.

 

  1. If you ran into your favourite author on the subway and only could say one sentence to them, who is it and what would it be?
‘Oh My Gosh I love you’ (?) But knowing me, I’ll probably just stand there staring in awe at them trying to figure out what to say and then end up saying nothing to them.

 

  1. What book made you a reader and why?
There is no specific book that made me a reader; books were something that I always loved as a young child since I had all the friends that I could ever want in books. But when middle school started, I kinda lost that passion for reading due to my lack of time so when I read The Selection by Kiera Cass, I guess that’s what made me the reader I am now and the reason I started my blog.

 

  1. Incendio! Your bookshelf just caught on fire! Show us the one book you save.
Um why would you ever do this to me? I think the book I would save is The Unexpected Everything because I haven’t read it yet and I’ve been wanting to read it for so long. But let’s be real, I’ll be grabbing all the books that I have on my shelves if they catch on fire.

 

  1. Which dystopian world would you want to live in if you had to choose one? Why?
Hmmm, which dystopian world would I like to live in. I’m not sure because the only ones that I’m thoroughly familiar with is the Hunger Games and The Selection so….. But they both have huge downsides so I think I like living in our current world… That’s also the reason I like reading contemporary books over dystopian books (but I still like reading them both).

 

  1. What is your most epic read of all time?
Why are all these questions so hard to answer? Actually I’m just indecisive. My most epic read of all time is One Paris Summer by Denise Grover Swanker. But of course, that is just my choice for right now.

 

  1. Also, tag some friends to answer these questions!
This sounds utterly cliche but I tag all of you guys to do this tag! Also send me links to your posts if you do this tag so I can see it too!

Thank you so much to Kat for having me on her blog today! If you guys want to see more of my posts, go over to my blog, The Cozy Little Book Nook and check those out because I’m featuring another blogger on there as well!

Thanks to Brooke for taking part. Make sure you look at the #SBPT hashtag to see others’ blog posts! 🙂 See ya next week.

Alright, I’m doing this! #BoutOfBooks17

Posted 8 August, 2016 by katheryn13 in Blog Talks, Blogging Challenges, Fun, Readathons, Reading Challenges, Updates, Video / 2 Comments

 It’s not for a while yet, but I plan on taking part in #BoutOfBooks17 and I plan on KICKING ASS!
What is #Boutofbooks17 you ask? Well…
Bout of Books
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 17 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team.
As you probably are aware, I’ve been in a horrid reading slump since my fantastic June reading frenzy. Pretty sure I burned myself out. Since then I’ve not managed to finish anything in July or even this first week of August. Oh yeah, I’ve read a few chapters of different books, and I’ve been rereading stuff, but I’ve yet to finish ANYTHING. It is really getting me down, especially since I’ve bought so many new books in the past few weeks, and I just can’t get the enthusiasm to read, either.
I’ve not participated in any readathons since June, and I am really hoping this one will get me out of this slump and back in the saddle, so to speak. 🙂
If you’re planning on taking part, please let me know by commenting in the box below.
Also if you haven’t already seen, I uploaded 2 new book haul videos, so this will give you an idea of what I might be reading. 😛 Though nearer the time I’ll post what I will ACTUALLY be reading, HAHA.

 

 

 

 

So I’ll see you later, and remember, keep on reading! 🙂

#SBPT | Week 6: Flo from Book Nerds Across America @TheBookBratz @booknerdsblog

Posted 7 August, 2016 by katheryn13 in Blog Talks, Fun, Updates / 0 Comments

LCnv16E7 (1)
Yo ho everyone! Week 6 on the Summer Blog Promo Tour and wow, I can’t believe we’re this far through the summer already! Jeez…Where is the time going?
Anyway, this week is all about Flo from Book Nerds Across America. Everybody should check out their blog! 😀
Today Flo will be doing the Bookish Identity Tag. So take it away!
CherryBlossom-Divider

Hi! *waves* Flo here. I am co-founder of Book Nerds Across America and…well…I’m a Book Nerd! When I was a little girl, my Mom literally took me aside one day and said, “…maybe you read TOO much?!” Yeah. True story. I devoured Lurlene McDaniel, R.L. Stine, Christopher Pike, John Grisham, Michael Crichton. Fast forward to today, and you’ll get a girl who devours most anything YA and certainly anything that keeps my attention! I love falling into a book, where all I want to do with myself is read it. I love cute, quirky fictional YA guys. I literally need a new bookshelf, because my apartment is being overrun by books. Like Mary, I am a staff member member of Down With The Capitol and co-host of Haymitch Happy Hour. You can follow me on Twitter at@FloeticFlo.

CherryBlossom-Divider
– What dystopian/fantastical world would you live in?
My first thought was the Harry Potter world. How cool would it be to go to Hogwarts?! But I think Narnia was pretty cool, too, right?
– Who would your partner be?
Ooohh….hmm. Vague enough question that I’m swimming in possibilities. My first thought was Cress because she can hack me into anywhere I want to be, so I guess I’ll go with that.
– Who would be your godly mother/father? [Percy Jackson]
Dionysus! God of Wine 🙂 I mean….. ;-p
– Would you be a downworlder or nephilim? [Shadowhunter world]
Nephilim. Blood kinda grosses me out, so couldn’t be a vamp. I’m not clever enough with my words to be fae. And much as I love Jacob Black, Luke and other wolves, shapeshifting looks so uncomfortable, so I couldn’t be a werewolf. 
– Which house would you be in? [Harry Potter]
I’m Hufflepuff through and through! #PuffPride
– Which faction would you be in? [Divergent]
Amity. What is it they say in the beginning of the Insurgent movie? “Go in happiness”? Love it!
– What would be your daemon [Northern Lights]
I don’t know this one, so I’ll take a pass.

Thank you to Flo for taking part, and again to The Book Bratz for organising this wonderful tour! I’ll see you next week!
P.s. remember to check out the #SBPT tag on twitter for other bloggers! 😀
