Shel Silverstein

If you are a dreamer, come in

If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,

a hope-er a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...

If you are a pretender, come sit by my fire

For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.

Come in! Come in!

All you need is Love

To be or not to be? That is not the question. To Love or not to love? Now that is the question...whether it is wiser to write for your love or the love of others.

Others love is great but-not to sound conceded-I'd take my love over other peoples any day of the week...when it comes to writing.
It's all about knowing, I say, if you know your audience, you know what they love so you know what to give them. But if you are your audience what you write is purely for yourself and your enjoyment. I am writing Millvalley for myself and any one who loves a good novel may read it.

While still on the subject of love, I feel like rambling on about the issue of love in the actual story line. Needless to say romance has a key part in Millvalley, well if there was no romance Conner and Patricia would never do a lot of things (not spoiling). But sometimes it seems hard to stuff my story full of the romance it deserves while still focusing on the giant plot. *oh sigh*
I love to add some romance but just to make things clear "this is not a love story" and no its not "a story about love" either. Its a "dangerous mystery in which people love" there I said it, now you know what Millvalley is about.

And she's off....

We all want what we want.

Once upon a time there was a little girl and no body understood her and so one day she wrote a story that no body understood and it totally blew everyone's mind and they couldn't get enough of it and she became rich and famous.....

I don't want to be that girl whose not understood but I would most certainly like my story to be the one that's so unheard of people don't know what to do with it but love it and eat it (not seriously). I believe in doing something you love and doing it right; because if you don't no one will do it better. That is why I've written Millvalley about twenty times (no joke) this story needs to be told right, told by me. My telling of the story has to be super good because the plot itself is so utterly fascinating.
It is the story of hopes and dreams, love and loss, adversity and optimism it's the story of my life, my childhood all crammed into one book with an artist twist to it. How many times have you heard that? well hear it one more time because I mean it--with a passion.
Lets face it we all have problems we all have wants and desires, we all have souls some of ours are damaged but in Millvalley they get written about.

Last seat on the Medusa....anyone?

The Secret is out...

Sometime in the near future a magical novel will be published.
It’ll be shocking (in a good way), intriguing and twisting magic like it’s never been twisted before.
A fresh new spin on werewolves, and by that I mean they’ll be original by being authentic. The kind you see on a full moon and run from, you don’t stop for tea and chat…unless you're feeling like being dog chow.
A novel in which vampires are blood thirsty and hostile, not the type you hook up with unless you feel like not living to your next birthday.
Hunters at every turn, dark pasts and a family secret that’ll make “Gossip girl” look like a kiddie book-- sorry B but no one cares what you and Dan do anymore—I almost forgot to mention the sinister ghost that will make the hairs on your neck shrivel in fear and make you realize just how beautiful life was before you got possessed.
Wrap all that up in a thick blanket of mystery--to keep out rain and prying eyes--tie a red ribbon of romance around it to keep everything in place then send it to the publishers and let it work its magic. Forgive the pun.
Who is writing said novel and why can’t you find it anywhere? Well that’s because I haven’t finished writing it yet.
You get this chance to see a masterpiece in the making—being majorly conceded here---you get to see the great cogs turn and the giant clock come to life before anyone else…you get to see the magic behind “Millvalley”.

See you at Reed’s Island….
