How I got into wrestling

How I got into wrestling or, if it was a fic: “The two times wrestling presented itself to me and I turned it down, and the one time I didn’t”. 1: Boy Meets World 1995 – (Vader) Boy Meets World was my happy place. It was silly nonsense, but it was enjoyable. I wanted to […]

Writing Update – April 2014

Like Carla, I’ve decided to slim this down to what we are currently working on. We’re both determined to get through this series without taking a break. Also, we couldn’t stop anyway, we’re enjoying it too much. Occasionally I want to flirt with other books, but Carla keeps me on task, because she knows me. […]

Update – March 2014

Well, my resolution to blog more has already crashed and burned. In my defence, I spent half of February in Las Vegas, and the other half preparing for it. As for my March excuse… I got nothing. Social High: I went to Las Vegas and got married on my 10 year anniversary to Craig. Carla […]

Reading Goals Sarah: To read 100 books (and to actually track them this year), and at least 20 of them must […]

Writing Update – December 2013

Ok, so updating on writing is a thing that Carla does, and I’m nothing if not a copycat when it comes to her. She has an awesome character? Totally stealing that. She comes up with an idea? Yep, I’ll write fanfic of that universe until it becomes cannon. Updates on writing? Well, if Carla does […]

Young Adult – Old School

Carla gave me a poke the other day, and reminded me that I haven’t updated my blog. Carla is very pro-blog. Carla is also a magnificent troll, because whilst on a pro-blog promo, she encouraged me to pick a domain, then once I had made my choice and told her I would buy it in […]

Horror Questionnaire (by Sarah and Carla)

What was your first exposure to horror? Carla: Dirty. Sarah: Dirty Dancing?  Truly horrific? Carla: I hate you. My first horror movie was The Howling. I don’t remember how old I was, but I was under 10, I think. I spent part of every summer on the road with my dad, who was a long-haul […]

Candy Fliss

I just want to be clear that I came up with “Candy Fliss” for Book 5 last night, (well, 2:25am on 21 November, so sort of yesterday morning, actually), but Carla says no-one will believe me. In five years’ time, this post will make so much more sense.
