This is me in my "professional" look.
No I'm not talking about the Martin Luther King Jr. speech. I literally had a dream about my novel in progress "Time With Seleste." opposed to the usual listen to a song and make a story out of it. No this time I had a very vivid dream! Talk about a Stephenie Meyer moment! haha.
Here's how it started.
It was May 17th 2010 (my eighteenth birthday to be exact) I had tossed and turned that whole night. Something was bothering me... Then around six o'clock in the morning--I remember this because I looked up at the clock just before I went back to sleep. It was as if I was living this vision, it was that vivid.
Joanna Garcia
Known for her role
as "Cheyenne Hart"
on the TV show "Reba"
I'm viewing from above at first, looking down on these two people. The girl was on the ground bleeding, while the boy was holding her listening intently to what she had to say. Then I'm snapped down to their perspective, I see the girl clearly she looked like the actress Joanna Garcia. The boy I couldn't see clearly, but I knew he was very good looking. Of course, this dream never indicated she was a time traveler though...that's something among a lot of other things I added. :D Then I was brought to another scene, viewed in her perspective. I was her! And I was beautiful like her as well (<-See Joanna Garcia to get what I mean).
(SPOILER coming up) All these people including me are on a boat, and we're going somewhere--no we were running from something and boat was the only way to get away. I turn to the boy I just seen in the previous scene, and I hug him and whisper "I love you." And I focus in on a freckle that was on his neck. Then I turn and run off the deck into icy frigid water. Total blackness in that point of view...
Jackson Rathbone
Well knowingly as
"Jasper Hale"
 in The Twilight Saga.
I'm snapped into--unfortunately a guy's point of view. Eck. And come to my realization the guy looks like my cousin Josh (In my novel he remains Josh but I change his image to Jackson Rathbone and not my cousin.) And he's talking about senseless things, you know how dreams gets. *rolls eyes* Another perspective was shifted to the boy who I name Darien in my novel. He's holding the girl in his arms, seemingly to be scared to death of her condition. She was drenching wet and pale, and when she comes to. They share a tiny passionate kiss, but Darien afterwards storms off angry at her for what she had done. The girl, all she was thinking was that Darien was safe. Because she knew if she didn't do what she did, he would have jumped in and not have came back at all. So she did something to save a guy she loved most. The dream ended there.
I woke up around seven that morning, astonished and confused at why I had that dream. It was amazingly vivid and interest capturing. I took it as a sign from God that it could be molded into a book. :D And he wanted me to, if not he wouldn't have blessed me with that honest to God dream! Nevertheless, it took me my whole birthday-day to think of plot that would be molded from that dream.
I first began trying to picture my characters. like I always do. I knew most definitely there would be the boy and girl that cared deeply for each other, it didn't take long for me to come up with their names. : )
The boy would be named Darien Marks (thinking of my old favorite anime show I use to watch when I was five.  "Sailor Moon." *blushes* I'm a sucker for Tuxedo Mask character, his name was Darien.) 
And my instinct told me to base his looks off from the actor on "The Vampire Diaries" Steven R. McQueen. He just fits Darien, he's good looking but not overly handsome, just right. :)
Steven R. McQueen
Known as the Grandson
of Steve McQueen.
And also known for the role
"Jeremy Gilbert"
On The CW's
The Vampire Diaries.
And for my girl it took me no time to think up a name for her "Celeste" but I wanted to change the "C" to an "S". Because for some odd reason when I started typing out "Celeste" I kept pronouncing it as "Chelsea" in my head, every time I seen the "C", that got on my nerves so badly. So Seleste was born! Also, I thought it would make it unique looking. : D. At first I went through so many actresses to picture as my Seleste. I didn't want to use Joanna Garcia, where she's doesn't look like a teenager anymore. I wanted a teenager or at least one that appears to be. Yes, Joanna is quiet pretty and talented. But with how I do with casting my characters in my head, I want them pretty close to the actual ages. (Just in case there would be a movie that could be made. ;) Come on every author thinks like that at some point. lol) So I went through, Blake Lively, Emily Osment and finally I stuck with Ashley Benson. But still...none of them fit the Seleste I had in mind. She's suppose to tiny like 5'2 barely making it over being a midget, skinny and really pretty with piercing dark blue eyes. In my dream, the first scene she was blonde, but in the next she was chocolate brown. I'm not too keen on having Seleste as a blonde, I don't want people getting the idea of Seleste being based off of me. (Even though I have considered it. But makes me sick to even think of writing about myself into a novel. So that's why I don't.)
Lucy Hale
Known as "Aria"
On the ABC Family's
Pretty Little Liars
So just recently I just re casted Seleste in my mind, and the vision of the actress has made my writing flow A LOT smoother. So another "Pretty Little Liars"'s actress became my Seleste Worthington! Lucy Hale! There's a very thin line of finding someone that can either go Tom Boy-ish or Girly. And Seleste is stuck between both, she's be happy in just a t-shirt and jeans, but she also desires the less girly fashion labels. But she cannot afford them to even dress like she desires, so she makes do with what she can get and is comfortable with it. I think Lucy can portray Seleste to a T, she's on that thin line of being girly and not girly. Also she's very tiny, short and beautiful! And another plus! Her and Steven would make an absolute adorable couple!
By right around four in the afternoon, I came up with the idea of Seleste being a time traveler. I thought it'd be way different from what I have been writing. So this is new waters to me. However, I can thank Doctor Who for the inspiration of the time traveling thing too. ;) I'm a Doctor Who-ser!
"Time With Seleste"
(Book cover.)
I rate it
PG 13
Mild mature language,
and sexual suggestions.
Are mentioned, but nothing
in detail.
The title for my novel came like the snap of my fingers! "Time With Seleste." It's so catchy and I can picture it on the books shelves!
So around ten that night I started out my novel, the plot came so easily to me like it was part of my very soul. Chapter One was originally going to be my Preface, but I went over board and wrote too much for it to be, so turned it into a chapter. For the next five to seven days I started to break my neck to get the word count up to ten thousand so people on inkpop can read it! I mainly was posting for my personal friends at home, for them to read it and see what they thought. Then it became a hit-- at first-- on inkpop! I couldn't believe it! It went from the two thousands rank to the five hundreds in the manner of hours! I was so astonished! So I started posting for my fans on inkpop as well.
I really have a confidence that this book can make it somewhere if people gave it a chance. Yes I know my grammar is horrible, but this is my first draft and I'm not going to proofread until the WHOLE story is written. For some reason if I start editing in the middle of writing a story, it just burns me out and I don't want to continue it. Same goes with outlining, so I'm doing this free of any binds! And it's refreshing! "Time With Seleste" is one of the most easy written projects I have begun, because the story is coming to me like flashes of lighting! I know God's has got something to do with it! He must be wanting me to write this story! I am dedicating my novel to this scripture -> "Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve to others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms." -1 Peter 4:10. Maybe I can find someway for my book to speak in some Godly way, I'm still unsure of how that could be. But maybe it'll just happen on it's own, so I'm not going to concentrate on finding the "form" perhaps God will send it my way in an epiphany. : )
I know I'll be able to finish this in no time! I've already planned that I'm going to draft it out seven times. And I'm going to hire a freelance editor (or possibly a English professor) at my soon to be college, I'll be starting at in the spring.
I hope I can get this on book shelves someday! I'm working so hard on this, and it's became my dream.
Hope you guys read and pick it!

Check out my official website for me and my books! - > http://wix.com/KrisTeeAuh/KristiaS
And also just click my "Time With Seleste" book cover in the side bar to the left of you. And it'll take you straight to my novel on inkpop! The word count is currently 85.028 and I'm only on my twenty-second chapter! I've barely skimmed the top! I'm planning on sixty to seventy chapters in all!

Hope you guys take interest and read my dream!

With lots of love, Kristia S.<3

What can I say? I'm a sucker for WEREWOLVES!

"Paradox"-by seattlelover7
Find it on inkpop.com!
And I'm a sucker for books about werewolves! And Paradox is making me love werewolves all the more. With the journey with Summer, Logan, Adam and the whole pack. It is an easy and funny well witty book, that'll leave you grasping for more! Sexy werewolves and a anguished teenaged girl...what more you ask for, for an auh-mazing book? Well seattlelover7 is doing it VERY WELL! This book has turned into one of my faves on inkpop! And I wish it had a higher rank. But 110 isn't too bad for just the first ten chapters. :D It'll make it I know it! Check out my official comment I have left on inkpop for this genius author. ->

This is sooooo good!
Definitely picked! And I’m blogging about this! You’ll be able to check it out-> http://xokristeeauhox.blogspot.com
WOW where to start?
Okay… I love your easy-going style and details. Summer is an awesome strong, witty and realistic character, which I cannot get enough of. I don’t think she doesn’t approach the sadness and anguish about her family’s death wrongly, I don’t see where people get that. I have and heard of people doing the exact same thing! And the word/title “Paradox” really explains Summer to a T. She thinks one thing then she thinks another, she just can’t make up her mind and figure if it’s true about herself or not. Yes I had to look up the definition of Paradox. HAHA.
And I love the way Summer is joke-y/sarcastic. :D That makes the book all the more interesting and a breath of fresh air.
And Logan (btw, I have a nephew named Logan. So this quirked my interest all the more) boy…he’s getting sexier by each word I read about him. At how protective and sweet he is. I probably would have planted a smooch right on those tempting lips of his right then and there in the grocery store. Well…nah I probably wouldn’t have…I’m a chicken. Haha. But I would have right there in the kitchen after Blondie left! OHHH boy I want to reach through this computer screen and grab that black hair of his and just plant one on him! Haha.
And how the plot is going, this is very riveting and soooo interesting! And so far this is one of my favorites on Inkpop! So on my blog I’m adding Paradox onto my favorites list! (which you’ll at the bottom on the page.)
Okay I have to say this…I’m a big sucker for werewolves. :D So it’s a major BIG + + + + + + + +!!! For me.
I’m not the biggest fan of the F-bomb, but I didn’t give it one thought while reading this where it’s soooo awesome! And that’s saying something. :D
I totally love this auh-mazing book and this is going on my picks and blog! And I would LOVE to see more of this! Could you let me know when you update please???? And please let it be soon! I’m fidgeting in my seat here! LOL.
Keep up the auh-mazing work! I LOVE THIS!
With lots of love, your friend and fan, Kristia S.<3
God Bless<3<3<3"

It is very rare that I have little to say about a book that I have liked/loved. I most of the time leave long comments, it drives me insane if I don't! I'm a talker! Cannot help it! haha :D Check this book out if you have the time! It's totally worth it!

Bye for now blog world! Type yas soon!

With lots of love, Kristia S.<3

Perfection Is My Enemy+ I ADORE IT= LONG BUTT COMMENT!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this new project by Marisa K. aka mleedancer12. You can see with my comment below that I have left for her!

"Perfection Is My Enemy"
By mleedancerr12 aka Marisa
Read it at inkpop.com!
"First things first—

*Insert: Squeals like a freaking awestruck schoolgirl*
*Insert: taking a calming breath, before continuing*
Okay… if you haven’t figure this out. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS! I am ADDICTED! I took all day today to read this thoroughly. I automatically fell in love from first chapter. Because I can relate to Colby A LOT— as of now anyways, not the old me when I was in school, I was a goof off when I went. But now that I’m older I can relate to her, because I like to learn especially English (duh I wouldn’t be a writer if I didn’t: D lol ) So I can picture myself in Colby’s shoes with education and all. Well not the math part—LOL I HATE MATH.
Anyways, you always have superb character design. It never seizes to AMAZE me. You have such a smooth flowing writing style that brings in ANY reader that comes your way. Even if the genre of interest isn’t in their taste, you always get the person to take interest. As I have mentioned before, I’m not really the one for realistic books. And ever since I read “Dancing Through Life” I have been completely open to all realistic books! And this book made the space even wider! I’m starting to be a sucker for realistic romantic general fiction. I LOVE IT!
Any who…I <3 MAX! He’s such a sweetheart and a cutie with trying to make Colby jealous with Ashley! Which Ashley is such a skank anyways! HATE HER! But a book always has to have slut somewhere in it. ;) (In my book she’s going to be named Lysandria McDaniel ;) ) *sighs* Wish I had a Max.
I don’t like the sound of Teddy. I have a VERY cautious suspicion about him. Okay I just don’t plain out like him. He reminds me of a guy that I know who has been after me ever since—like—forever! And NEVER quits! I just I don’t know, my stomach dropped a little bit in the last chapter with Teddy. Okay I just don’t trust him. Maybe I’m getting it in a wrong way, I’m just judging him by my own experiences a bit. Oh well…I’m probably making a big deal out of nothing,
Okay I’m a sucker for Skylar, she’s a wild child that’ll learn her lesson. And that makes the story all the more interesting. And I like Jocelyn, she’s a very mature and a person you can look up to. Where she has stood up to her mother about her choice of quieting gymnastics. GO GIRL!
That’s really sad about their parents though. But it’s Brian’s fault! AFAIR?? IDIOT! HE’S A FREAKING IDIOT. Even though…Lucy is a control freak, and that would be kind of a turn off and make him turn away from her a bit. But oh well…no excuse to cheat on her, no matter how much of a snob she is.
I love Colby’s friends.<3 :D So easy going and easy to get along with—as long as your being nice to them and not IGNORING them and chasing them away! Haha. I really like Trista the most with her passion for theatre and her understanding with Colby. Jessica um…I’m still getting to know her so I really don’t know what to think of her just yet.
The slow progressing relationship you have going on between Colby and Max is so enticing and adorable! He and she obviously like each other, and neither won’t definitely own up to it. So they resort to jealously. :/ HAHA LOVE IT! SOO CUTE! I love the excuses he gives Colby to get to hang out with her. SERIOUSLY! B-??? Too cute for words! He just wants to get her attention and get to know her better. HAHA I dies laughing when he mentioned about he had to eat two sherbet when she ditched him! HAHA!
This whole plot is sooooo interesting and I’m definitely going to stay with you until the end of this! Add me to your list of ‘let knows of updates’ I am definitely tuning into this! And of course it’s a pick!
You’re going to kill me with that last chapter cliffie!! I’m chewing my nails here!!!
I’m going to wait until you have posted this entire book and I have read it thoroughly, before I give you an all out right review. :D So I won’t miss any elements in the review. It would be kind of hard to review something that’s just started. I would if I could. So I’m leaving you a long butt comment instead. So hopefully it’ll quench your thirst of a comment from me. :D And also I want to get the full view and plot of this so far genius story into an review of mine. I am SOOO CURIOUS of how this is going to end!
Heyyy… I already see an AUH-MAZING lifetime movie in the making here! Lol. I can SO TOTALLY SEE IT NOW!
Your stories are sooooo GREAT! And I look forward to seeing more from you! And I know you’ll be an well-known author someday. Just don’t forget about little ole’ me when you get there! Lol.
With lots of love, your friend and fan, Kristia S.<3<3<3
God Bless you ALWAYS<3<3<3"

This book is forever one of my faves on inkpop! As for Marisa's other project that has already made the top five in recent months on inkpop--"Dancing Through Life" I highly reccomend any of Marisa's projects, they're always brillant and well written. She will capture your heart and mind within the pages of her stories. I know she did me. :D And also she's one of the sweetest people I have met on that site! Please go give her books a read! They are awesome!
With lots of love, Kristia S.<3
God Bless & Goodnight blog world!
P.S You can click on "Perfection Is My Enemy"'s icon at the bottom of my blog and it should take you straight to her book! Same goes for "Dancing Through Life." :D If you have any problems contact me @ XoKrisTeeAuhOx@aim.com
