The Darkness Within Trailer Reveal!

Today we are bringing you the trailer reveal for The Darkness Within by Kelly Hashway. The Darkness Within is the follow up to Kelly's The Monster Within.

The Monster Within
The moment seventeen-year-old Samantha Thompson crawls out of her grave, her second chance at life begins. She died of cancer with her long-time boyfriend, Ethan, by her side—a completely unfair shot at life. But Ethan found a way to bring her back, like he promised he would. Only Sam came back wrong.
     She's now a monster that drains others' lives to survive. And after she kills, she’s tortured by visions—glimpses into her victims would-have-been futures had she not killed them. Barely able to live with herself and trying to make things right, Sam ends up a pawn in a vicious game of payback within the local coven of witches.
     But when the game reveals what Ethan had to do to save Sam, she must make a choice that will change all their lives forever.

The Darkness Within:
After dying of cancer at seventeen and being brought back to life by an evil witch who turned her into a monster, Samantha Thompson thinks she's finally gotten past all the tragedy in her life. Now she's part of a coven of good witches who are helping her and her boyfriend, Ethan Anderson, learn to use the powers they received from other witches. Aside from the fact that Sam and Ethan are still in hiding from their old lives--the ones they had before Sam was brought back to life--things couldn't be better. Sam and Ethan are inseparable. What could go wrong? 


Ethan's magic came from a witch who'd turned as evil as possible, and though his coven thought he'd be fine, the more he uses his magic, the stranger he starts acting. The magic inside him is changing who he is. One minute he's Sam's sweet, perfect Ethan and the next, he's a complete stranger. Even with all her witchy power, Sam is helpless against the magic corrupting Ethan. Can Sam find out what's wrong with him before she loses him to dark magic forever?

Cyber Bullying : My Thoughts On An Ever-Growing Problem

Recently I have been hearing a lot about how these annoying little trolls are bullying authors.  There have been several of my author friends who have been bullied and put down by people who read their books/blogs.
  It really annoys me that these people do nothing but criticize and belittle others.What ever happened to "If you can't say nothing nice, don't say anything at all"? Are these people so miserable that they have to tear down others?  They drag people down to their level just to make themselves look better. It only makes them look bad!
Authors spend so much time creating their books. They takes months (and even years) to write a book. Then there's editing and revising, which takes hours upon hours. Promoting their books is a challenge. They spend a lot of time on social media and go to book signings (which means leaving their families for who knows how long). They kindly ask for reviews (good or bad).
 It's through reviews that a lot of the problems are happening. Not only are these people leaving bad reviews, they are just getting mean and hateful. Some of them are even getting very personal. It's the same way with blogs. There are certain idiots who seem to think they can just leave nasty comments and nothing will be done to them.
 A lot of these so-called human beings are getting away with what they're doing. I know this is America and we have this thing called FREE SPEECH, but this is getting out of hand. Why should people be allowed to treat others this bad? In my opinion bullying of any kind should be a crime. 
 It is not an accomplishment to hide behind a computer screen and make others miserable.  It's nothing but cowardice. It makes you pathetic. If you aren't big enough to say something to someone, don't say it behind their backs. 
If you don't like an authors book(s) just say so. You don't have to be a horrible person. And just because one person doesn't like an authors work, doesn't mean no one will. The negativity of trolls can help sell books too. It makes people see how these morons really are. I think that for every bad review an author gets, they get a dozen more good ones.
 I don't understand why people have to be so cruel to others. I have never been able to be mean to anyone. I think you should show everyone respect. It's the only way you're ever going to get any in return. Putting others down to build you up only hurts you in the end.
Being a victim of cyber bullying myself, I know how those words can hurt. Some people are stronger than others and can take the criticism. While others fall into depression and think of suicide. (I'm talking more about the effects of bullying in general, than just authors being bullied).  Bullying is not a victimless crime.
 We need to put an end to this senselessness. Don't be a terrible, bitter person. If you're that unhappy maybe you should get some help. Don't use your problems as a way to to torture others. I refuse to sit back and watch any of my friends be bullied for any reason! If you know nothing about someone, don't get personal, that's it, end of story.

Quotes For Inspiration

Today I want to talk about quotes.  I have a notebook full of all of my favorite ones. They are about all kinds of things. Inspiration, friends, love. I just love finding new quotes that inspire me and drive me to keep going. But my most favorite kind of quotes are writing quotes. I absolutely love when I find a quote by one of my favorite authors. Here are some of my favorite quotes.

“The dearest ones of time, the strongest friends of the soul—Books.” ― Emily Dickinson

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” ― Maya Angelou

Whoever is happy will make others happy too.
Anne Frank

No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.
Robin Williams

If you don't have the time to read, you don't have the time or the tools to write.
Stephen King

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.” 
― Bernard M. Baruch

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” 
― Mahatma Gandhi

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” 
― Eleanor Roosevelt

“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” 
― Bob Marley

“I'm a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn't have the heart to let him down.” 
― Abraham Lincoln

“It can't rain all the time - from The Crow” 
― Brandon Lee

“The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all.” 
― Walt Disney Company, Mulan

 And then there's my most favorite quote. The one I live my life by:

“Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious...and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”  - Walt Disney 

I hope ya'll enjoyed the quotes and can use them in your life too. Remember... KEEP MOVING FORWARD!!!!  Until next time...LATER DAYS!!!
