Who or what inspires your writing?
Mostly successful authors inspire me every day. Anytime, I read the papers about J. K. Rowling or blog sites about Amanda Hocking, I feel so inspired to continue writing books.

When did you know you would be a writer?
The moment I entered the university and I found out that my chosen course wasn’t what I really wanted. I had the required skills for it, but I lacked the enthusiasm or passion.

How long did it take you to write your first novel?
It took me about three months to write my first novel which was over 70,000 words. However, the editing process took up to a year to complete. I can recall rewriting the first chapter close to twelve times.

What is the hardest part of writing for you?
Rewriting, I guess. It’s a lot of work to polish one’s manuscript. Though, it’s a bit easier if one gets a professional editor to have a look at it. This helps reduce the long process of editing.

Do you have any writing rituals?
Hmm, none really, just that I do most of my writing on my blackberry.

Have you written anything else?
Asides LS: The Beginning and LS: Deception, I’ve written a romance sci-fi novella, titled, Fast Forward: Into The Future, and I’m going to release another novella(fantasy romance) this month, titled, ‘Jimmy and The Enchanted Book.’

Any advice to aspiring writers?
Learn about your genre, target audience and the publishing industry. Ignorance isn’t an excuse, but rather a way exit. Keep writing, you don’t really need to publish all you write, but just keep writing and reading. The more you do these two, the better your writing skills will become. Also, be passionate about the art of writing. Make your readers want to pick up your book for the second time. Lastly, be determined and consistent. Your readers want to know what book you’re releasing next.

Who are your favorite Authors?
J.K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Stephen King. Angeline Kace, Tiffany King

What are your favorite books, or which book has impacted you the most?
Harry Potter Series, and Twilight Series, but most especially, ‘On Writing’ by Stephen King.

What are you currently reading?
Descended by Blood by Angeline Kace. It’s really an intriguing read. I like the main character Broke very much.

How do readers find out more about you?
To find out more about me and my books, stop by my blog Kelvin’s World. I often blog about my life as a writer and give updates on my books. On my blog, you can find various links you could use to get to me, like Twitter, Facebook etc.

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
