The cover reveal for The War Within will be tomorrow. I am so excited.The mock-up I received is awesome. I love it! I hope you all do too.]]><![CDATA[UPDATE!!!]]>Mon, 29 Jun 2015 02:41:41 GMThttp://tyeshirelle.weebly.com/blog/updateI have a couple of updates for you. The rewrite of The War Within, Book 1 is complete, I'm just waiting on the editor now. I expect that it will be available within the next two weeks.

Also, I've been told that the new cover is almost complete. I'm extremely excited about it. Look for that to be revealed around 7/1. 

Book 2 of The War Within is at the end of the first draft. I'm excited about that as well, not too much longer now. Okay, so authors around the country have been tasked with a 7-7-7 challenge. The challenge requires you to post 7 lines, from the 7th chapter, starting from the 7th line, in the book we are currently working on. So, here is a bit from book 2. 

"Well, I don't have the time to sorry, breathe, and calm with her. I need to get to the doctor or I am going to lose it. In an instant, I am on my feet and speedily traveling towards his office.

Trying to write and do laundry at the same time. Every time my juices start flowing effortlessly, it's time for the rinse cycle or the dryer stops or the clothes need to go into the dryer. What it boils down to is, whenever your creativity sparks are lit up like a million fire flies, make sure you have on comfy clothes and have at least two water bottles, lock yourself in a room, put in ear plugs and go for broke until your fingers cramp. (That is of course, if you would like to complete your book before 2017.)   #cognizantwriters #Lovetowrite

This is one of E' licious Restaurant's favorite cookbooks! Tonight we made Mushrooms in Cognac Herb Sauce Risotto. If you like to drink wine, here's a way to include it in all of your meals. We haven't been disappointed by any of the recipes we've used yet. As a bonus, you can drink the wine while you are cooking and drink the leftover wine when you're done cooking.

<![CDATA[Emma's POV]]>Wed, 22 Oct 2014 04:07:30 GMThttp://tyeshirelle.weebly.com/blog/emmas-povI'm always caught in the middle, always running interference! How am I supposed to know what to do or how to act? I'm torn between my best friend and my sister, not to mention a woman I have grown to love and come to call a close friend. Do I try my best to stay out of it or do I try to encourage everyone to do what I think is right? This crap is for the birds!]]><![CDATA[Upcoming Events]]>Wed, 22 Oct 2014 03:44:55 GMThttp://tyeshirelle.weebly.com/blog/upcoming-eventsSaturday, 11/01/14, Kylie's Fiction Addiction - Author Takeover and Giveaway.

<![CDATA[Mental Illness Awareness Week]]>Tue, 07 Oct 2014 03:03:02 GMThttp://tyeshirelle.weebly.com/blog/mental-illness-awareness-weekMental Illness Awareness Week is Oct. 5-11. Mental illness affects 1 in 4 American adults. It can strike anyone at any time. I encourage everyone to share their story. I hope that I helped others to understand that no one is defined by their illness in my novel The War Within.
