Switching over for a new start and a new day.

Hey everyone!

Okay well I've recently been doing some serious thinking and I've come up with the idea that I finally have decided i will be switching over to WordPress from blogger. It is nothing against blogger. This place is great. All of you are great and I hope you all will come follow me on WordPress as well.

I also have decided to break my blog out into more direct focus.

I have the following blogs and their links....

M.A. Grace Author Blog -

Darken Scorpio Gaming Blog -

Book Reviews and related stuff -

I will be working the rest of March to get them set up all nice and pretty and move over the post from this site to the appropriate new home. And then starting April I will be participating in the April A-Z challenge on 6 of them. I have a plan laid out to post on each blog on certain days and a whole slew of content to talk about. I really hope to see you all over there and I hope to get yall some new content to look over soon. Im excited about the change and taking this excitement and running with it.

A voice from the abyss.....

Hi Everyone,

I know I keep falling off the face of the earth but this last year well it sent me for a really rough time. So glad 2014 is OVER!!! Between a divorce, a new relationship, moving 3 times, a company going bankrupt, and a few more things that happen that made the year keep moving along it is now 2015 and new goals with new plans are in action.

First off to all of you wonderful subscribers who have stayed with me through these years of coming and leaving and coming and leaving. I'm revamping my blogs.

Author/Writing stuff with continue to be here on The Story Of A Girl...

Video Gaming and geeky nature stuff with be on my gamer blog at:

Turning the Pages has shut down for now but will hopefully be able to return again in the future.

I am in the process of redoing my Author Platform as well. So that being said expect to see some releases this year as I re-edit and re-publish my previous books and my books that are well over due for release.

I also need some beta readers and people willing to read and review the books once they release. Email or leave me a comment if you are willing to do either one.

I also am working on setting up a blog for dog toys. I want to start doing blogs about how fast my dog Tornado and or Twister can go through the 'undestroyable' toys that are out there.

So what are your 2015 plans? Let me know what you are wanting to accomplish this year.

April A-Z Challenge: Villain C...


(Minecraft Pc & Xbox)

Creepers are common hostile mobs that use a suicide-style attack: They approach players and then explode, causing massive damage to players, entities, and blocks within a short radius.

Creepers spawn in the overworld at night, and in locations with a light level of 7 or less, just like most other hostile mobs. However, unlike Zombies and Skeletons, Creepers will not catch fire in sunlight, and those spawned in darkness will continue to roam in daylight until they perform an attack, are killed, or despawn.

Creepers are especially dangerous due to their near-silent approach, save for light footsteps and an occasional rustling noise. A Creeper will warn the player moments before it explodes with an infamous burning fuse noise. If the player can manage to move far enough within about one second of this noise, the explosion will be canceled, and the creeper will attempt to approach again.

Creepers run from cats and ocelots, and will ignore the player to run away when a feline is too close. As cats can be acquired and controlled by the player, this provides an important avenue of defense from Creeper attacks.

Creepers have become notorious and infamous among Minecraft players for their infuriating habit of sneaking up on the Player to inflict devastating damage following an all-too-short warning sound. They have arguably become the most recognizable image from Minecraft, as well as the game's unofficial mascot.

April A-Z Challenge: Villian B...


(From Mario)

Bowser, sometimes known as King Koopa, is the main antagonist of the Mario series and the King of the Koopa. He has repeatedly kidnapped or attempted to kidnap Princess Peach and take over the Mushroom Kingdom. He has on other occasions attempted to conquer the entire Mushroom World, as well as the entire universe. Despite his villainous nature, he has occasionally helped the heroes of the Mushroom Kingdom against common threats and participates with them in their numerous sporting events in spin-off games.

Since his debut, Bowser has been in nearly every Mario game, including the main series, spin-offs, and crossovers. Due to his role as the primary villain of the Mario series, he is mostly the final or penultimate boss in his appearances, if not as the main antagonist (an example being Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga). In the Mario RPGs, Bowser is generally cast as an antihero or a minor villain, with the exception of Paper Mario, Paper Mario: Sticker Star, and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.\

April A - Z Challenge: Villian A

Alec Trevelyan (006)

(From the N64 game Goldeneye)

GoldenEye 007 is a first-person shooter video game developed by Rare and based on the 1995 James Bond film GoldenEye. It was exclusively released for the Nintendo 64 video game console on 25 August 1997. The game features a single-player campaign in which players assume the role of British Secret Intelligence Service agent James Bond as he fights to prevent a criminal syndicate from using a satellite weapon against London to cause a global financial meltdown. The game also includes a split-screen multiplayer mode in which two, three, or four players can compete in different types of deathmatch games.

GoldenEye 007 was originally conceived as an on-rails shooter inspired by Sega's Virtua Cop, before being redesigned as a free-roaming shooter. The game received highly positive reviews from the gaming media and sold over eight million copies worldwide, making it the third-best-selling Nintendo 64 game. GoldenEye 007 is considered an important game in the history of first-person shooters for demonstrating the viability of game consoles as platforms for the genre, and for signaling a transition from the then-standard Doom-like approach to a more realistic style. It pioneered features such as atmospheric single-player missions, stealth elements, and the incorporation of a console multiplayer deathmatch mode.

GoldenEye 007 was followed by a spiritual successor, Perfect Dark, also developed by Rare for the Nintendo 64. A reimagining of the game, also titled GoldenEye 007, was published by Activision and released for the Wii and Nintendo DS in 2010, and later re-released as GoldenEye 007: Reloaded for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 the following year.

Updating.... new schedule... new look... new attack

(My new bookmarks front/back I got done by Blue Harvest Creative)

 In Feb 2012, I published my first book. A poetry book. It contained around 70 something poems in it I believe that I had collected over my growing up years. Poetry was a way for me to escape in my emotions. And I had been told by numerous teachers to publish it. So I finally did.

Shortly after that in April 2012 I published my first fictional novel, I've got you covered. Me and my friend Tyler had been working on this story line for probably a good 6-8 years. Stopping and restarting it. Finally we had enough for 1 book that turned into 2 books come fall 2012 and three books come spring 2013. And now come Fall 2014 will finish up the story with book 4.

While walking my Indie journey I started doing book reviews for other Indie Authors. I not only got to read some amazing stories I made some really awesome friends this way as well. So in my review journey I started Turning The Pages. It was a small idea that has continued to grow. Turning the Pages started as a simple Magazine for Indie Authors to have their stuff published and shown to the world. Just another spot for them to be seen in. Because exposure is a big key in the Indie world.

My journey is only 2 years old. But I have accomplished SO much in that 2 years its amazing to me. Me a little back woods country girl from Western North Carolina with a degree in Medical Office.

Feb 2014 I published a novelette that I have plans to turn into a full novel in 2016. This Novelette sparked the interest for my Season's of Love collection that will include 4 books.

I've got a good amount of stories still left in me that I plan to publish over the next few years. My rough draft plan for these is as followed, but keep in mind it is a rough draft and could be subject to change....


~ February:  Fields of Summer (Contemporary Romance Novelette) 
~ April:  Baby Dragon's Sound (Children's Book)
~ June:  The Black Rose (Paranormal Adventure Romance)
~ September:  Out of Time (Book 4 in the Blazing Charm Series)
~ December:  Dixie Raised (Women's Lit) 

~ Whispers on the Wind (Fantasy Adventure)
~ Never Escape Home (Mystery Adventure)
~ Courts of Fall (Season's of Love Collection) 
 ~ First Class Private Moonlight (Military Romance Suspense)

~ Fields of Summer (Novel version; Season's of Love Collection)
~ Mountain Home (Tribute to my Father (RIP); Historical Fiction)
~ Unicorn's Rainbow (Children's Book) 
~ War Painted (Romance) 
~ Family Favorites (CookBook)

~ Seven Deadly Sins (Horror)
~ Presents of Winter (Season's of Love Collection)
~ Chips, Fame, and Heartbreak (Contemporary Romance)
~ 18 Holes of Murder (Murder Mystery) 
~ No Title Yet  (Historical Romance) 

~ Flowers of Spring (Season's of Love Collection)
~ H2O: Hopping To Oregon (Comedy Adventure)
~ The Flower (Horror, Murder, Psychological )
~ Mary-Phobia (Novelette; Mystery)

~ Diary of a Child (unsure genre)
~ Black Hole (Sci-Fi Adventure)
~ Paw Detective: Mystery of the Stolen Milk (Children's Book)
~ Paw Detective: The Run Away Remote (Children's Book)
~ Paw Detective: The Lost Slipper (Children's Book)

So that is the next 5 year plan, well 6 year plan if you count this year... But as you can see each year is full of great stories I want to share with you and no I don't have a specific Genre I write. I do tend to have the Young Adult/New Adult age characters in my stories though. And I am always adding more story ideas to my list. I think I actually have a plan all the way into 2025 but I haven't checked recently enough to confirm that but its somewhere back there.

As for Turning the Pages it continues to grow. Hosting Events online and now in person. Running not one but a couple of magazines and continuing to find things to piddle in. Including now we are even making custom swag for authors.

The future is bright and full of amazing things still yet to come.
