Happy birthday Meander!

Exactly one year today, I posted Fifty Shades Meander on the Fan Fiction site!

Since then I’ve written 268 489 words (excluding the one-shots) which equate roughly to FIVE BOOKS, if you follow the industry genre standard! 

So – from me to you – thank you so much for your support and your encouragement, for taking a chance on a story I know starts in a very bad place for the couple we adore, the reviews and the books, the trailer links, the music, the suggestions, the fixes, but mostly thank you for your friendship ;)

To celebrate this very happy event I’ve written a Crossfire one-shot (Gideon’s POV) because so many of you have asked for a love scene between Gideon and Eva. Find Gideon Meander in the sidebar.

But that’s not all… if you call now…. LOL! :D

Seeing that so many of us are still on a Real high, the author, Katy Evans was kind enough to grant me an interview to celebrate Meander’s birthday! Cool right? And between me and you, let me tell you, she is as lovely as her book! It’s so refreshing to find a writer that keeps in touch with her fans the way she does.

These are the questions I asked her…

Boys – athletically lean or Remy-style bulging muscles?

I love both, actually!

Ice-cream or chocolate?

Chocolate!

Name one food you would never eat.

Mushrooms.

What do you think about when you’re folding the washing?

Plots and characters!

If you could pick anyone, who would you like to have a dinner date with?

My husband.

If you weren’t a writer you would be…?

A nutritionist or an athlete.

What is your favourite children’s book?

The Hungry Caterpillar.

Who is your favourite author?

So many! But I think the ones I grew up reading are the ones that have stuck with me through the years. Julie Garwood, Jude Deveraux, Judith McNaught. Love you!

If you had to pick just one, which song would you pick for Real?

Iris.

Is Remy based on someone real?

No. But he’s as real as it gets to me.

According to Goodreads we can expect a total of five books in the Real, Raw and Ripped series, do we really have that much of Remy to look forward to? ;)

Well, they are not all about Remy and Brooke. Remy and Brooke get REAL, MINE and REMY (his POV story) and then Melanie gets her own book, and the last one is a surprise. :)

Following the success of Real, are you more or less nervous about the release of Mine (book two in the Real, Raw and Ripped series)?

I’m hopeful that you will all love it as much as you loved Real! My goal is to be as true to what Remington and Brooke as I was in the first book, so I’m trying to be faithful to them and to what they want to say.

When is Mine scheduled to be released?

Nothing is set in stone, but I’m hoping at the latest by fall 2013.

Is Remy baby-ready or will he be concerned about passing his condition on to his offspring?

Not sure, I haven’t talked to him about that.

How much research did you do into Remy’s condition and is the blue to black eye color change a genuine possible part of this disorder?

Yes, the eye color change is a genuine possible part of this disorder. It is not common, but is has been researched and documented and occurs (or has occurred) in many people with BP. As for research, I’ve personally been exposed to people suffering with mental illness, and I admire them very much. Warriors! I also stocked up on my reading.

Mid week teaser

This week’s teaser is more taunting than tease… 

*cue wicked cackling* ;)

“…“Mommy, what’s wrong? Are you hurting?” Chris’ sleepy voice is like a sluice of ice, the sound innocently jarring…”

Sylvia Day posted chapter one of Entwined With You today, the third instalment of the Crossfire series to be released on the 4th June 2013

My Gideon

Hello fangirls!

I am so excited! It’s nothing major but I have found my ideal Gideon Cross. I don’t mind David Gandy but with the short hair he never really fit the vision of Gideon I have in my head. If you don’t already know him, let me be the first to introduce you  to Marcus Schenkenberg – model, actor, songwriter…

Marcus Schenkenberg

Whaddya’ think ladies???

Here’s David Gandy for in case you needed a comparative reminder…. ;)

Mid week teaser…

It’s that time of the week again, a little dose of chapter 34 Meander for you…

“…The only thing that kept me from bawling my eyes out was Chris’ sweet enthusiasm for the duration of the ride in Charlie Tango. Inside my heart was breaking, cracking open, splitting with what seemed like a terrifying finality.

Christian, of course, took care of every detail for our covert escape from Seattle. Once we landed we drove to Ray’s in a normal sedan, no tell-tale luxury Audi for us this time. Though the windows were tinted it was one of those cars that were completely unremarkable, so every-day that it was easy to forget.

Taylor even took the precaution of driving straight into Ray’s garage, making us wait until the roller door was firmly shut before letting us get out. All of this just on the off chance that someone was keeping an eye on us.

The sound of the garage door clipping into place made me think of the slam of a prison gate; here we’ll be captive until this mess is resolved. Every second away from Christian was a sentence passed on to me by this bastard thug that was chasing us. I hated him with a rawness that I swore would give me an ulcer…”

<3 <3 <3

Also, this week I made a little discovery. Sylvia Day has a short story out called Blood and Roses. It has a little bit of Gideon in it. I’m not finished reading it but I thought you’d enjoy seeing a bit of our “other” guy outside the Crossfire series.

Jed Hill

For me, he may be a little young to play Gideon – if ever there was ever a Crossfire movie and he’ll need longer hair but a good candidate none the less.

Ps: apologies for those of you who would NEVER dream of cheating on Christian. LOL! ;)

Is this Christian or Gideon?

Pounding heart

This is a very short story, a link from Sylvia day’s site – a little new year’s teaser, not quite sure what it is and, it seems, neither is she but hey it’s from Gideon’s POV, obviously after he did what he did to Nathan. I loooove her so here it is:
