I glanced back where the guys had gone into the bushes, saw them walking out.
"You think they're okay?" I whispered.
Dani turned and looked at them. "Yeah, they're just typical boys hoping to get lucky. If they want to be nice, fine, but we don't have to do anything else."

  1. Your excerpt definitely made me curious. Why did they go into the bushes? And what are the guys going to expect from the girls? I hope they want to be nice!

  6. LOL I'm curious as to why the boys wouldn't be okay but the girls don't seem very worried. I assume they're teens from the conversation.

  7. Judging by the cover art, I don't think the boys are going to be nice. Thanks for hosting, Freda!

  14. Ooh. This book seems pretty cool. I don't know what I think of the boys, but the girls seem to at least be observant.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void.
