The Wasted Site

Jack of all trades and stereotypical black sheep, C. Elizabeth has been writing somewhat dark and morbid since that teen angst hit in the early 90's- probably because her dad was a mortician. After pursuing a degree in English, she changed gears to photography and design in 2006... although she kept penning stories for fun while reading the works of Edgar Allen Poe, Oscar Wilde and Hemingway (whom she adores even though he was a huge douche canoe). In 2009, her life shifted considerably and she found herself writing Elegantly Wasted- helping her sort out a bunch of stupid feelings and other lame stuff.

Holli Anne's LITTLE Announcement

Well, I guess that image pretty much sums this blog up, but I'll say it anyway since it's so fun: I'm having a baby, and he's a boy!

I'm 18 weeks pregnant now (4.5 months for those who don't feel like doing the math), so almost half way there! It's been a whirlwind of emotions (and sicknesses and food aversions) since we found out, not only letting the news sink in but also moving to a house to accommodate our new little man.

Now that I'm REALLY nesting, I'm sure there will be plenty of little DIYs and home decorating blogs coming your way for every room in my new boxed-up house.

Side bar: We haven't given the little lad a name yet, so if you have any fun ones you think we should consider, feel free to pass them on.

The Long Game: Two Reveals in One!

We love reading over here at Almost There, which means we love talking books. Today's post IS about two different reveals!

The first is about an upcoming book (releasing on the 7th!) BUT it's the second reveal that has us going OMG!

FIRST, let me tell you about this new book!

Book Name: The Long Game

Book Genre: NA Contemporary

Book release date: October 7, 2013

The Long Game on Goodreads:

The Long Game on Amazon: 

The Long Game on Barnes and Noble: To come.

The Long Game book blurb
Smooth talking. Ambitious. Loyal. Twenty-year-old Shay Reilly has proven himself to his Irish-American Gypsy clan on small-scale cons, but now the clan leader has a bigger mission for him: playing the long game. 
To rake in the big score he’s after, he needs to con co-ed Spencer into falling in love with him. He knows he should see Spencer as a mere means to an end, but that’s easier said than done when there’s a witty, attractive girl in your arms. 
Now the only thing that can keep them apart is the thing that brought them together: Shay’s plans of revenge against someone who wronged his clan and family years before—Spencer’s father.

Excited? You should be! Now, let's talk about reveal #2!

Let's keep the excitement going! Check out this excerpt from LONG GAME!
I have a very special job, and you’re the only one who can pull it off,” Pop Sheedy said.
I’d been leaning forward, listening, but hearing this sent me reeling back several inches. “I’m honored, Pop. What did you have in mind?”
“I’m sending you up north to Pennsylvania. A place near Philadelphia called Balanova.”
“Balanova?” I’d never heard of the place. And I couldn’t think of a single person I knew who lived in Pennsylvania. “What’s in Balanova?”
-Tyler Anne (aka Chick Tyler)
