Winners and News!!!!

        Hello beautiful people visiting my blog! How are you this fine day? I’m quite tired actually but then again that’s not much of a surprise. I have some news for you all so I really can’t get out of writing this particular blog post in favor of a nap. So let’s get started!
Probably the biggest news I can share with you right now is that I am starting a new job. A new, awesome, grown up job! :) I’ll be working for the police department. This is great in so many ways I cant even wrap my mind around it! This job is a pretty big deal and was months in the making but I made it! The feeling of celebration has not been wearing off. When I begin my shifts that will probably change but right now I’m just floating on cloud nine. Or is it eight? I think nine is the love cloud so I’m probably one below. 
The other little bit of news I wanted to share with you is the progress on my WIP. Half way people. I am half way finished with this new baby. I am so super excited about this story I can’t even...
Anyone up for a teaser?

“Do you always come over to strange boy’s houses in the middle of the night to show them paintings of the sea?” I felt inclined to ask. 
“Yes, it’s an addiction.”

I know, that tells you nothing but I promise its a really, really good chapter. How do you guys feel about teasers? Would you like more of them now that my book is coming together nicely? Let me know! 
       Well, I’m off to get some writing done before class tonight. I hope you all have a wonderful day! 
       Don’t worry, I’m not leaving you hanging! The winners of my Random Swag Giveaway are:
Victoria (raus....)
Momo (booksover....)
Tamara (tammyb....)
Winners have been contacted and I will be sending out the goodies as soon as I can! Thanks to everyone who participated! There will be more contests soon. Involving books. :-) Alright, now I really must go! I’ll leave you with this song. It’s been stuck in my head all day. It may or may not be part of my new project. 



Wink. Wink. 
Much love, 
Valia
