2012

Update Time!

Hey y'all! I hope y'all experienced a sunny day. It's been storming on and off here all day. It's one nasty storm! A couple things have occurred since the last time I did an update post. Therefore, I know it is that time again.

Sweetness is in the works of getting translated into Spanish and French. If that gets successful sales, then I'm Yours will be translated as well.

If you are looking for a sweet deal on the paperback for Sweetness, then send me an email for a special link and coupon code to purchase Sweetness for only $5! Limited number will be given out so hurry up and email me at lindsay_paige@ymail.com

My birthday was a huge success. I spent the day with my brother's girlfriend. I renewed my license, registered to vote, bought a lottery ticket (won two bucks!), and bought a can of air. Those ultra duster's for the computer...yeah, you have to be 18 to buy those. My friend and I went to the Adam and Eve store (not much there really) and Victoria's Secret. The ladies at Victoria's Secret were fabulous! They were extremely helpful and sweet. They even sang happy birthday to me!

After that, I went and got a tattoo. Yup. The girl who faints from a shot or drawn blood went and got a tattoo. No worries. As long as I'm laying down or leaning forward, resting on something, I am fine. My tattoo is special to me because it has the colors and popular symbol (puzzle pieces) of the National Autism Society.

This is an image that was taken right after the guy finished. It's on my left shoulder. Isn't it adorable?

Sweetness and I'm Yours will be available on various e-formats (other than Kindle) the second week of March. (I think that's right.) Whatever It Takes is a bit behind schedule. I've got a couple of things to wrap up and then it's back to editing. I've got roughly 50 more pages to write before I can start editing.

As for my other projects, I haven't worked on them much. I haven't been in the mood, but that's no excuse, right? No worries. I'm putting my butt back to work tonight.

That's it for this update post. Have a lovely weekend folks.

It's Official-I'm a legal adult!


On this date in 1994, I was born. You probably thought I was going to go into details about weight and everything, right? Well, no. Isn't it enough to know that I was born?

Anyways, I was named. Incorrectly. That's right. My name was supposed to be Lynsay, but my mom wasn't thinking straight or something and that didn't happen. No worries. I still love my name.

Did You Know:
-That I share my birthday with Enzo Ferrari. Yes, I can say that I share my birthday with the guy behind Ferraris.
How cool is that?!

Let's have a timeline of sorts here, shall we?

Age 5: Started school. Cried every day for the first semester on the bus. Became an aunt.

Age 7: Became a proud aunt of another nephew.

Age 10: My grandfather passed. (I love you Papa!)

Age 13: I'm a teenager. 

Age 15: Got into a car wreck that year and became the proud owner of some sweet scars.

Age 16: I can drive! Went to Costa Rica where I obtained yet another scar.

Age 17: Published two books. Diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Agoraphobia.

Age 18: Here I am. I can vote, buy a can of air or a lottery ticket, and test drive a car. How about this one?
 or
My and my youngest nephew are going to test drive one of those babies. I'm so excited about it. I'm sure he is too. He's been talking about it all year. I would share some words of wisdom with y'all, but I could think of a lot of things- things I hope everyone knows already.

Next big event?

Bad Habits-Everybody has some.

Today, I'm talking about bad habits. Everybody has at least one bad habit. Emily, Jake, Drake, Mike, and myself are here today to share our bad habits. Feel free to share your bad habits too!

Lindsay
  • Procrastination. -When it comes to school, I put the pro in procrastination.
  • Impulsive. -Sometimes, I have these impulsive sprees. It's like a shopping spree, but worse. Thinking things through can be a tough task sometimes!
  • What my Dad said: Not keeping my clothes put up. (Lame!)
  • What My Momma said: "I don't know where to start!" Haha, thanks Momma.
Emily
Hi everyone! When someone asks about your bad habits, it's hard to come up with some. Here are the ones I have (and a couple of Jake's too!)
  • One of my bad habits is that sometimes, I care too much about what others think.
  • I'm scared to speak my mind when it matters most.
  • I try to handle things on my own instead of asking for help when I need it.
Enough about me. Let's talk about some of Jake's bad habits that really irritate me sometimes.
  • He can be hard to talk to sometimes.
  • The littlest things can make him jealous. Who knew he was the jealous type?
  • Oh, who am I kidding? I love all of his habits- good or bad.
Jake
Such kind words, Sweetness. Thanks. :) I'll work on those habits. I, on the other hand, will not list any of Emily's habits. I'm just that nice. (That probably made Sweetness smile.) Let's see...my bad habits?
  • Occasionally, I get my priorities mixed up.
  • I take Sweetness for granted too much. (Thanks for all you do Sweetness!)
  • I have to agree with Emily. Sometimes, I talk when I should keep my mouth shut and listen.
  • I don't always handle things as I should.
Drake
Someone thinks I have bad habits? What?! I don't think I have any bad habits.

Jake
I can list some for you.
  • Talks too much.
  • Way too hyper early in the morning.
Shall I continue?

Drake
Those aren't bad habits. Those are just things that make me Drake. :p

Mike
  • Emily is my baby girl. I have to admit that pretty much let her do whatever she wants. I have a hard time saying no to my little girl. That's my biggest bad habit.
Lindsay
Well, I hope you enjoyed everyone sharing their bad habits. Except for Drake that is. :) What are some of your bad habits? Do you share any with us? Please share!

Let's Celebrate!

Sweetness (Bold As Love, #1)
In celebration of  Valentine's Day and my birthday (20th), Sweetness will be on sale for 99 cents until my the day after my birthday. What better way to celebration these two events than with something as sweet as Sweetness. If you purchase a copy, please be sure to write a review! It's very much appreciated.

Emily wished she was invisible. But after moving to a new town with her dad, a charming boy makes it impossible for her to disappear. Despite her feelings of unworthiness, Emily soon finds herself drawn to the safety of Jake's world.

Good looking and the star of the hockey team, Jake has a lot going for him. What most people don't see is the difficult life he has at home. When quiet Emily steals his heart, Jake vows to help her discover she is worthy of love.

Just when the two of them realize the sweetness of their relationship, they are put to the test. Only together can they overcome their haunted pasts to fight for a future together.

2012 New Year's Resolutions

I always make resolutions and like most, I never follow through. I'm hoping 2012 will be different. There are many big things that are happening in 2012 for me. Such as...

-I turn 18! Yes, I'm excited.

-I graduate from high school. I'm more excited about this than turning 18. Why? Because there is nothing more that I want than to leave high school behind me. With school being the main trigger for my anxiety, I'm pumped to leave it.

-Top Secret Project 1 will launch. That's all I can share.

-I will start college. This I'm not that excited about. I'm extremely nervous that my anxiety will be the same as it has been in high school. Yes, I have learned to control it much better, but the fear is still there.

-I will have not only TSP1, but also TSP2 and 3 going on. I'm hoping to have TSP2 done and open for the public by late 2012. For TSP3, I am really just starting to work on it and as of right now, I don't have any idea when you guys will be able to view it.

Those are the most exciting things happening for me in 2012. Here are my resolutions:

-Make TSP1 successful.

-Finish Whatever It Takes by my birthday so it will be on schedule for publication.

-Make my books available on other ereaders. This is probably happen in March. Due to something I've done with Amazon, I can't sell my books in an eformat anywhere but Amazon until March.

-Attend writing workshops and/or conferences. I know this will be very beneficial to my writing and I would love to attend one.

-Donate a portion of my sales to various charites that are important to me.

What are you resolutions?
