Your Guardian Angel   |   Sun Kissed

For Ruby Moore life is far more complicated than that of your average teen, for she is in no way average. Ruby is a vampire and her life as a vampire is far from traditional…

It has been one year since her normal life was brutally taken from her. Still adjusting to the shock of the change from mortal to immortal, her world is rocked again and she is taken under the wings of a guardian angel back to Sage Sanctum, a school beyond reach from the vampires that are determined to destroy her.

There, she is freed from her vampire chains and her normal needs and urges return. However, a new urge arises… Lust. A forbidden lust toward her savior, her guardian angel.

Attempting to control these desires is difficult, very difficult and when things couldn’t possibly get any worse, her situation becomes life or death as someone, somewhere in the school is aiding those who want her dead.

How to Identify Your Writing Problems:

The best way I identify my writing problems is firstly, I write a chapter and leave it for a day or two (maybe even a week) when I come back to it, I find all kinds of mistakes and awkward wording that I never noticed before. Once it is no longer fresh on your brain, it is easier to pick up on things. Secondly, I get my husband to read through it. He tends to find a lot more mistakes than I do and thirdly, I listen to critics and take on board what they feel needs improving—I’m always open for change and I love learning new things.

    Great post! I love Skyla’s advice to let something you’ve written sit for a while before trying to edit it. This works for me so well. I find that when I go back to it later, I can see it with fresh eyes and hopefully make things better!
