#Giveaway & Interview with Jessica Miller

Welcome Jessica Miller to the blog today!

Jessica is a budding new author with a passion for writing in her veins. She stems from the suburbs of Pennsylvania where most of her time is spent writing, listening to new music, or reading a good book. When not busy writing, Jessica works part–time in a salon where she enjoys making people look beautiful. You can catch up with Jessica on her blog or follow her on Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads.













Please tell readers about your current book.
My current book, The Wanderers, is a tale of a young girl who’s just trying to move on from the past and discover where she belongs, but unfortunately life never goes as planned. Ella is forced to face a troubling past while being tempted by a potentially dangerous boy. Emotions run wild when things get a little heated and for Ella the worst has yet to come.
Reborn, the second novel in The Wanderers series is also available. It takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions as Ella tries to figure out just who she is and where she belongs.

Who or what inspires your writing?
Music. I like to listen to music when I write or watch TV. Sometimes I’ll just sit back and close my eyes and let the music carry me into another world, one I created.

When did you know you would be a writer?
After I wrote my second book. I have never been so happy doing anything else and I have never wanted to do something so badly in my life before. Writing is the only thing I have stuck with and pushed myself so hard to do. I can’t imagine doing anything else.

How long did it take you to write your first novel?
Honestly, I’m not sure. 3 months maybe? I know it wasn’t long. I wrote my first three books in a year.

What is the hardest part of writing for you?
Finding time to write and getting in the mood. There just sometimes when I have nothing in me and then there are other times when it’s nonstop. But lately finding the time has been an issue. Growing up and being responsible stinks. L

Do you have any writing rituals?
Not really. If it’s nice out and I get really stuck on a particular scene, I’ll throw my headphones on and go for a walk to clear my head. Usually this results in me finishing the book in my head. Sometimes I get so lost in the development of the story, when I finally return home (an hour later) I forget half the stuff.

Have you written anything else?
Tons. My first Book, The Hairdresser Diaries is a contemporary romance (Adult). No, it is not a biography or funny stories in a salon. It’s fiction. I wrote what I knew. I am currently working on a New Adult Romance, an Urban Fantasy trilogy, and the next installment in The Wanderers series. I flip flop back and forth a lot which I think that is why it takes me so long to finish one book. Plus I have about two three other outlines started for other books.

Any advice to aspiring writers?
Don’t second guess yourself. You are always going to be your own worst critic. Never give up and keep writing because it’s something you want to do and not because you feel like you have to. 

Who are your favorite Authors?
Richelle Mead, Becca Fitzpatrick, Jamie McGuire, Victoria Scott

What are your favorite books, or which book has impacted you the most?
I have a lot of favorites. Vampire Academy is my number one but I would have to say Twilight impacted me the most because it got me to start reading. If my friend wouldn’t have insisted I read the books before the next movie I don’t think I would have started reading as much as I have and I would have missed out on a lot of good books.

What are you currently reading?
Gabriel’s Inferno by Sylvain Reynard and Buried Secrets by Emme Rollins. I switch back and forth when I lose interest in one. 

What do you do when you learn your family is the one who's holding all the secrets. Secrets that could get you killed... 

Ella is looking forward to starting college in the fall with her best friend Josie. She’s looking for a place where she can get away from her overbearing parents and two older annoying brothers. Unfortunately Ella realizes that sometimes the past comes back to haunt you. 
Ella soon learns that the man who terrorizes her dreams is in fact real and coming after her. 
When one of her classmates is murdered, Ella slowly recognizes this is not some strange coincidence. Ella fears that the boy she’s falling in love with is the one who stalks her dreams and no longer knows who she can trust. 
When she finally learns the truth of her families deepest secret, Ella has to face her demons by taking out one of the people she thought she could trust…before they kill her.



Ella finally knows what she is, but now she’s not so sure she knows who she is. 
With Jack still on the loose her parents have her confined to the house leaving Ella to feel like she’s stuck in a prison. Coping with the loss of her best friend and the love of her life, Ella feels trapped in an endless cycle of torment. She feels she’s doomed to lose everyone she loves. In attempt to keep her safe and help her understand her new life her parents decide that what’s best for her is to go back to school, but not just any school. 
Ella’s not alone though. The school is filled with students who are just like her, including her brother Dean. Her mission is to keep herself blended in the background and out of trouble, but unfortunately Ella isn’t that lucky. With the roommate from hell, her brother constantly breathing down her neck, and being pinned right away as the outcast, Ella wants nothing more than to just crawl under a rock for the rest of her life. Even the school’s sweetheart has it in for her. 
Can she overcome her fear of the unknown? Will she ever learn to accept who she is? The most important thing Ella is concerned about is just surviving the semester at Hamilton Hill.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation.
