I leave you here the cover of Personal Demons and what’s about. Also below the same for Original Sin.

PERSONAL DEMONS (Tor Teen, September 14, 2010)
Frannie Cavanaugh is a good Catholic girl with a bit of a wicked streak. She’s spent years keeping everyone at a distance—even her closest friends—and it seems her senior year will be more of the same…until Luc Cain enrolls in her class. No one knows where he came from, but Frannie can’t seem to stay away from him. What she doesn’t know is that Luc works in Acquisitions—for Hell—and she possesses a unique skill set that has the king of Hell tingling with anticipation. All Luc has to do is get her to sin, and he’s as tempting as they come. Frannie doesn’t stand a chance.

Unfortunately for Luc, Heaven has other plans, and the angel, Gabe, is going to do whatever it takes to make sure that Luc doesn’t get what he came for. And it isn’t long before they find themselves fighting for more than just her soul.

But if Luc fails, there will be Hell to pay…for all of them.

ORIGINAL SIN (Tor Teen, July 5, 2011)
PERSONAL DEMONS series, book 2
Luc Cain was born and raised in Hell, but he isn’t feeling as demonic as usual lately–thanks to Frannie Cavanaugh and the unique power she never knew she had. But you can’t desert Hell without consequences, and suddenly Franie and Luc find themselves targeted by the same demons who used to be Luc’s allies.

Left with few options, Frannie and Luc accept the protection of Heaven and one of its most powerful angels, Gabe. Unfortunately, Luc isn’t the only one affected by Frannie, and it isn’t long before Gabe realizes that being around her is too…tempting. Rather than risk his wings, he leaves Frannie and Luc under the protection of her recently aquired guardian angel.

Which would be fine, but Gabe is barely out the door before an assortment of demons appears–and they’re not leaving without dragging Luc back to Hell with them. Hell won’t give up and Heaven won’t give in. Frannie’s guardian exercises all the power he has to keep them away, but the demons are willing to hurt anyone close to Frannie in order to get what they want. It will take everything she has and then some to stay out of Hell’s grasp.

And not everyone will get out of it alive.

Vampire Academy: Last Sacrifice

Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy, #6)Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a great book. A great ending for a very good series.

I really likd the way the mistery of the murder evolved, the way Rose and Dimitri were together again. But most of all how they now are equals and she actually taught him something. She actually matured a lot in this book.

I highly recommend it, good writing and great world building.

GS update in five!


1. I have been working hard this week. I’m still working in my query letter for my class. Right now we are doing different types of them.

2. Also I realized that I will have to change some big things on the plot of GS. I’m working again in the outline so I can see where to apply the changes. I’m making it in english and spanish.

3.Also I’m working in the three dimensions of my characters to have a better perspective of them.

4.I finally have done some translation as you can see in the bar on the left, although I haven’t revised that part. I will do it next.

5.Well those are all the updates from  my writing. How are you doing?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Friday five

I haven’t posted in many time so I thought it was a good idea to post my friday five.

1. I have been very busy with homework of my writing class but I love it!! The class is great and I know I will learn a lot.

2. I also started again with the revision translation of GS and I think I am going to change some thing of the outline, right now I’m working on that.

3. Tomorrow Is my father’s and husband’s birthday! Yes, their birthday is on the same date with 20 years of difference. It is a great coincidence. I remember when I was a little girl I always said that I will marry a man who’s birthday was on the same date as my father and I married one! LOL. Another coincidence is that between my mother and I are 20 years of difference and 30 with my father so now with my husband we are 29 (me), 39 ( my husband), 49 (my mother) and 59 ( my father). We are a strange family!

4. I have a new orchid!! My husband brought it yesterday. I will take a picture and post it on monday.

5. Carlos and Alex had a cold all the week. Now Carlos is ok but Alex now is sick of the stomach. I hate virus!!

Have an amazing weekend!!

Query Letter corrected

Thank you so much for your help!
Now the query letter looks like this:

Dear Agent/Editor:

[An opening line about why you want to work with this particular agent or editor / why they’d be perfect for this project.] ( I will leave this to complete it when I have the name of the agents)

Glowing Shadow is my debut young adult novel, a paranormal romance complete at 85,000 words.

Muriel Blythe moved to Madrid to study psychology. She needed to get away from everything and everyone to learn how to control her gift: the supernatural gift of feeling what everyone felt around her–and making them feel whatever she felt.

But in Madrid, mysterious shadows begin to attack her, while strange lights protect her. Muriel struggles to discover what this eerie battle is all about, and why she has been drawn into the center of it. She learns she has the power to make astral trips into the present, and this helps her in her quest.

At the same time, Muriel develops strong feelings for her defender: one of the lights who, in reality, is a man. A man who makes her feel love, something she has never felt before. Muriel began to love him even when she wasn’t sure who or what he really was, but she was certain that he wasn’t totally a light–that he was something between light and shadow.


After founding why she had her supernatural gifts and that her love was forbidden, she also discovered that nothing was as she thought, that in life you must be brave and never give up what you love most.

 

Another ending:

Ultimately, Muriel discovers that nothing is as it once seemed–and that sometimes, you must be brave to keep from losing what you most love.

I love both endings the first one because it explains a little of what she discovers and the second one because it leaves the story in suspense. Now I have to make a decision.
