Just wanted to give you the heads’ up! I have been accepted as a staff writer for HBO Watch, a website which focuses on HBO shows! I haven’t submitted anything…yet, but I will in the future! You can look for my posts under my name, Erika Hill – where I plan to focus on True Blood, Game of Thrones, and maybe even some other HBO shows too?! I followed my part-time, partner-in-crime, Serena Larkin, who writes for the Sookieverseblog and has her own blog devoted to GoT called, Kissed by Fire! You should really check it out, if you’re a fan of the books and the show!
In other news…I have been busy working on my next chapter in my Jax & Tara fanfic, Dirty Little Secret! Wow, I didn’t realize it has been almost a year since I last updated it! I apologize for the delay. It’s amazing how much time flies! So, stay tuned, my long-suffering Jax & Tara fans…there should be an update very soon, in the not-too-distant future! Plus, I would like to write and post the next chapter in my Eric & Sookie fanfic, Deadly Intentions as well!
You’re probably wondering how and why I’m suddenly able to have more time to write? Well, it’s two things…
- I have enlisted (bribed, convinced, blackmailed) three people to help me over at Eric & Sookie Lovers! Hehe…but don’t tell them I said so! Haha! They love Eric and Sookie and my site and offered to help me out with it. One of the people runs the Vikingwenches! Another one spends her time writing an “Open Letter to Alan Ball” and is a TruBookie! And the last one just loves to talk about her favorite couple and the show, and is having just as much trouble finding Quopics of the Day as I do! I’m thanking them everyday for helping me out with it, because the site HAS gotten too big, even for my breeches! LOL
- The other reason why I’m finding more time to write, is the fact that last fall (after a lot of deliberation on my part), I decided to step down as one of moderators of the Sookieverseblog Forum. 😦 Don’t worry, I’m still a member, and I do stop by and visit every now and then…but with the growth of Eric & Sookie Lovers, I just don’t have time to moderate people and give them a proper smackdown (believe me, some of them need it). I have too much to do around my site, and lots of people to keep in line there as it is…it would be a full-time job, that doesn’t pay the bills. YKWIM?
In lesser, unrelated news…I reviewed Michelle Gamble-Risley’s book, “California Girl Chronicles” on Eric & Sookie Lovers…and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt! Haha…just kidding! 😉
It’s too bad I don’t really have coconuts…more like peaches! Hahahaha… If you would like to read my review of this book, please click here! She would really like to get this book series turned into a show, and honestly, it’s a good book! 😉
Here’s an update in my interests…I’ve become a HUGE fan of Klaus and Caroline from The Vampire Diaries! Don’t know why…but I love how she isn’t afraid to tell him off (because he needs it) and he is “fond” of her! ♥ How sweet!
I’m also becoming quite obsessed with Spartacus: Vengence! If anybody has ever watched the past 2 seasons, you might know what I mean. It has interesting storylines=check. Hot men=check. Shocking violence (which doesn’t really bother me)=check. Amazing actors=check. Intriguing characters=check. And not to mention…full-frontal MALE nudity=bonus. My favorite character is Gannicus. I love how all he wants is sex and booze, he’s my kind of man! I also loved the hookup between Spartacus and Ilithyia in Season 1…now it appears they have a “hate” child on the way! Hahaha. To me, they are really good together, and I find the woman he is with now (Mira), is a kick-ass fighter, but other than that, I find her extremely boring as a character, zzzzzzzzzzz – but that’s JMHO and I like couples who most people can’t see together. If you haven’t seen it – I suggest you should! I think I might start recapping it! 😉
Another great show I love is The Walking Dead! Now, I understand that the season finale was this past Sunday, and I missed it. But don’t worry, I will be watching it soon! All I can say is…I love post-apocalyptic stories. Always have, always will. I always wonder what if something similar might happen in the future, and whether or not I might be able to survive it? Oh well…I guess we’ll see if the Mayans called it in December, right?
That’s all that’s news with me…until the next time…keep it real!
