Get to know me weekend part 2

Angelina Kermer

The weekend continues. Yesterday I shared 20 facts about me. Here’s 20 more.

  1. My favorite soda is Cherry Coke or ginger ale.
  2. My favorite food during pregnancy was French Fries. When I was in the car and we were about to pass Carls Jr. or something, I could literally smell them. Bad for husband, cause I would make him stop so I could get some fries.
  3. The first person to do my make-up that wasn’t my mother or me was a gay friend in high school. He had a lot of fun doing it, too.
  4. I love to cook. I like soups and they last for 3 days at time so I would cook a soup and know that I’ll have food available. It’s hard to have something ready with a baby around so liking soups is a MUST. ^_^
  5. I broke my fingers once by falling from a rail. That was when I was about 10 years old…my mother didn’t believe me that I broke anything and only realized something was wrong after I started getting sick. I haven’t broken any bones since!
  6. I stopped being friends with a boy after he jokingly called me a b*tch. I told him that jokingly or not, I don’t like being addressed like that. It was uncalled for. So, I kicked him out of my house. I haven’t seen him since.
  7. I love decorating for Halloween and Christmas. Usually I add one decoration starting the first of October or December. Haven’t started decorating yet this month though.
  8. The only fish that I eat is Salmon and I prefer cooking it myself.
  9. I have a hard time understanding humor and sometimes sarcasms.
  10. I’ve been married for 5 years!
  11. I love bubble baths. When I was pregnant, I couldn’t have them much and then with the baby no time so I adore them. My female characters tend to love their bubble baths, too. It’s their favorite past time and YES, it’s my fault.
  12. My favorite color is Purple!
  13. My favorite number of all time is 13. Architect's Daughter Font (1)
  14. I was born on the 13th.
  15. My favorite font is Architect's Daughter Font
  16. I like researching things, more on Google than Pinterest. I know Pinterest is a search engine, but I’m not used to it yet, though I do have an account and created many cool boards. For instance – The Seven Hours Virtual Book Tour!pretty
  17. I have had several surgeries and nurses think that I’m a model patient.
  18. When, I was in high school, I used to love to write with gel pens. Is that still a thing?
  19. Two of my Halloween costumes was of a female version of Captain Jack Sparrow and one of a gypsy. me with johnny
  20. When I’m sick, like for days, I tend to have a Harry Potter marathon with popcorn!

Tell me something about you.

Get to know me weekend starts now ^_^

Angelina Kermer

I bet that most of you who read my blog posts, know me as a book blogger. However, I’m not just a book blogger, I’m an author first… well second cause first I’m a mother to an 8 month old little boy. PGPE1924

If you knew that I’m an author and mother (you probably paid attention to the site’s image at the top which is great! But, other than that you don’t know me much. Hmm. We would have to remedy this, this weekend.

So, let’s see where do I start?

  1. I miss ballroom dancing.
  2. I’m a Pisces and that means something. If you guys know anything about Pisces is that they are dreamers, well no wonder I decided to be an author on the side to my day job. 😉
  3. I’m 5’7″. When I was a dancer that MATTERED so much. It was hard to find dance partners to be taller than me, especially when I was wearing high heels, but I still had fun dancing ballroom.
  4. I really dislike one nickname- Angie. I don’t know why but when people call me that, I get irritated and sometimes don’t respond.
  5. I’m a fan of Microsoft but had to buy me a Mac…mainly so I could learn how to create apps.
  6. I hate liars.
  7. I have two sisters and one brother.
  8. I used to have 6 cats. One passed away two years ago in August and one passed away this August. Both were black cats. IMG_3106IMG_3128I miss them very much!
  9. I don’t have a TV…well I do but I turned it into a computer. Too much of a hassle to set up channels…stupid with what they did with those little boxes. I use Amazon Prime and or other providers to watch movies and shows. I recently just caught up on Game of Thrones…all 7 seasons.
  10. I have never played Angry Birds, Candy Crush, or Pokemon in any form.
  11.  My favorite drink is coffee and I haven’t had coffee since December because of being pregnant and then breastfeeding. After I finish breastfeeding for good, the first that I’ll do is get a coffee! Are there are any new coffee shops that I should check out?
  12. I love puzzles! They are just so much fun…it takes a long time to find the pieces but can be a family thing…though my family only helps me when I have twenty pieces left EVERY time!
  13. I have a dream of organizing everything in boxes and or labeling everything but that will never happen and even if it would, it would only last a day!
  14. There’s a song that is stuck in my head and it’s about numbers. Courtesy of my son who likes listening to songs about numbers! Here’s the link to his  favorite and yes, it’s in Russian. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyE6PZhSurQ 
  15. I try to do things that I love.
  16. Each book that I’m working on has its own folder on the desktop and folders within that folder.
  17. For backing up files, I email myself and sometimes my mother so she could keep a copy for me.
  18. I don’t miss the taste of alcohol.
  19. I hate shrimp…mainly because some buy shoved one down my throat to force me to try it. That was in high school. Yuck! That killed our friendship.
  20. No more ice cream for me. Some milk products make me sick…so sad!

 

That was 20 facts about me, Angelina Kerner- a mother, author, and blogger.

I would love to hear something about you. Leave a comment. ^_^

Character motivation- need help

Character motivation –

Guys, I need help. So you all know about my work in progress- Into the Flames. If not, here’s a little blurb:

red

So if you guys read the above, I need to find character motivation for the static voice.

Here’s the thing, it’s my first time writing someone creepy and I think for the most part…I got him acting perfect…but that’s because for the first 20k words, it’s just a voice, not a man behind it. I know the character is a male and he wants to use the main heroine for his gain…but why?

Sure, she’s the next queen to be…but how does he want to use her. I have a scene where she meets him…but she doesn’t really meet him because he stole someone’s face and so she still has no clue why he’s after her and why he likes creeping her out.

It was natural for me to write in the voice, I actually don’t know where the idea came from. It was just obvious to have him around. Since, I write romance and usually fantasy and or chick-lit, I don’t really know how to write ‘creepy.’

Since October is the creepiest month of the year and most of you are thinking about costumes and parties, maybe you guys can help me out.

Comment with your ideas for my character’s motivation. Maybe I’ll use yours. Maybe an idea will be born from yours or maybe I’ll combine a couple of ideas. One never knows.

I very much appreciate all your help.

Book Cover Reveal: Deity’s Soulmate (2nd ed.) by Angelina Kerner

cover reveal

Deity’s Soulmate (2nd ed.) by Angelina Kerner

As an indie author I love having a juicy secret— having my book cover all to myself… and my editors/illustrators. Today’s reveal is exciting because it brings us back in time to my first published novel with style. Deity’s Soulmate (2nd ed.) is longer, better, and hopefully will make you question about what happens in books 2 and 3. I’ve kept this pretty under wraps unless you count my post on Twitter where I showed a small piece of the cover in black and white.
