The Write Stuff: Rebecca Jaycox

Fellow Rocking Horse author Rebecca Jaycox talks about the inspiration behind her writing .

The Girl with Book Lungs

I don’t have a sacred space to write in, and I didn’t become a writer because of a book—not to say I don’t love to read, because I do—but rather a movie. Discovering Star Wars as a tween made me want to become a writer, and these days I end up doing most of my writing in a notepad on the love seat in front of my TV. After writing my first book, “The Other TheOtherInheritance-FrontCoverInheritance,” on my computer, I’ve developed an allergy to writing the sequel on anything electronic. I just can’t do it. Unfortunately for me, I’m most comfortable putting pen to paper, which means I have to type all those messy, handwritten notes later. I’ve essentially doubled my workload, but who ever said writers were efficient? I simply claim this oddity as the privilege of being an artist. That seems to explain most weird habits away.

(Dreamer Trilogy, Book Two)

Enjoying her new life in Sandhaven after the events of the
year before, Amelia feels like she has it all great friends, a home by the
beach, a job that she loves, and a handsome boyfriend. But a new threat is
brewing in the city; the Cambiar Virus is spreading fast and people are dying.
Amelia does not want to give up her peaceful life, but someone must fight for
those who are unaware of the danger they’re in. With Cameron acting strange,
her friendship with Sarah strained, and her relationship with Jonah growing
more complicated, the last thing Amelia wants is to put her personal life aside
and get involved in another life threatening situation. But she doesn’t have a
choice.

 

 

Every time I awoke, I remembered nothing. No dream, just darkness. A new fear came over me. Had they worked out how to erase my Dreamer abilities? Had they destroyed my dreams?

Friday Fiction – Code Name Whiskers

Fluffy

Eight days out – I have successfully infiltrated the human’s living quarters and have made a discovery. The humans come and go, and yet I am forbidden to leave. I can smell the outside through the crack of fresh air in the open window.

I can smell freedom . . .

The humans put me in a cage yesterday. I yowled, but they did nothing. They transported me to some sort of medical facility. There I saw a strange furry black creature with long stretched-out ears. I made contact. I believe that with ears of that length she would make a perfect spy for our organization.

It is obvious to me now that the humans are jealous of our greater intelligence. This is why they have imprisoned us. The one they call Fluffy has been restless of late. He is careless in the toilet facility and I have had to finish his work.

The food here is minimal as you would expect from a maximum security facility. Our human guards’ food is tantalizing. Fluffy begs for scraps. I will not bow that low. Instead I wait until the humans are sleeping and see what I can scavenge. The large receptacle in the humans’ eating quarters often holds some tantalizing morsels and it pleases me to watch the humans clean up the results of my night-time raids. They glare at me as they clean, but they cannot be sure it is not Fluffy’s work and I continue grooming my fur as I watch and learn.

This is Whiskers signing out – I believe it is time for my nap.

Choices by Michelle Lynn

BLOG TOUR
TITLE: CHOICES
AUTHOR: MICHELLE LYNN
RELEASE DATE JANUARY
25TH

 

 

Everyone makes lots of little decisions from the moment they
wake up until they sink back into sleep at night. Decisions that have no
consequences or expectations. But, what about the rare choices that could
change everything? How do you know what is right for you?
Happiness is something you have to choose again and again,
each day.
Michaela Matthews wants that more than anything. Standing in
her way is a family pushing her down a specific path and the man she loves
preventing her from choosing anything different. When she moves to the city for
the next step in her parent’s plan, she starts to figure out what she wants –
or more importantly, what she doesn’t want. She thinks she has to leave her old
life behind to discover a new one. This throws every choice she has made into
question. It isn’t until tragedy strikes that she learns that sometimes there
is no choice at all. Sometimes you can have it all.
Jason Marks has had the kind of life where things have
seemed to just happen to him, no choice involved at all. It’s a struggle for
him to keep the past at bay while he tries to move forward. He is no longer the
unwanted foster kid. He is a business owner, surrounded by people that love
him. But, he isn’t in love. He’s not even sure he believes in it. Not anymore.
At least, not until a heartbroken girl falls apart in his arms. It’s enough to
make him a believer. Make him a dreamer. Enough to force him to answer that
question. Do you give all of yourself to someone who might not choose you in
return?
Yes. Yes, you do.
