Facebook Pages can be a daunting project to start for anyone, let alone a new author, but having your own space on the interwebs without having to pay domain fees or hire a web developer is undoubtedly one of the most important factors for building and reaching an audience. As with most things, there are Pro’s and Con’s to having a Facebook Author’s page and were going to cover them all while I give you a quick and dirty tip on how to manage your page once you get it started.
🌟PRO: Billions of people use Facebook every day!
You know your little addiction to Facebook you try not to tell your therapist about because you don’t want him to put you on Aderol? Well, there are tons of other people with the same addiction! Three cheers for insanity! This means that so long as you’re producing content these people want to connect with, getting YOUR content in front of people is extremely easy.
❌CON: Facebook limits your content, on purpose!
Facebook operates on an algorithm called EdgeRank. EdgeRank scans all the content on the site and limits and boosts posts based on similar content, the likes of the target audience and what they’ve liked and shared before. Say that if you already have an Author’s Fan Page and seven hundred people like your page. Not all seven hundred likers may see your posts every single time. Couple that with the fact that they probably like a ton of other pages, this means even less of an opportunity for them to see that shiny new cover reveal.
❗️What We Can Do:
⚡️Create your own content!
Facebook Page ranks aren’t based on the number of people who like the page or even a specific post, but instead on the engagement the post garners. The more comments and shares your content receives, the more important and well received Facebook will believe it is. What does this mean? Build your own high-quality content and post it for the world to see. When you see a funny meme someone else posted and you share it to your page and all your followers like and comment on it, you’re only building the engagement of the original poster. This engagement does nothing to affect the rank of your page which means fewer people will see your posts in their Newsfeed. Focus on finding, posting, or even creating those memes yourself and posting them to your page.
⚡️Post that content when the most people can see it!
There has been tons of research done on the optimal times to post on Facebook and other social media networks, but it all boils down to your page and your fans. Generally, study says the best time to post is between you the hours of one and three PM during the week but I’ve found my followers to be most active on Sunday’s after six PM. Pay attention to your page insights and find out what works best for your fans.
⚡️Share it yourself!
You’re already probably part of numerous author and marketing groups on Facebook and if you’re not what are you doing with your life? Join as many of these groups as you can, so long as you follow their criteria and the group is relevant. I highly recommend staying away from a group about My Little Pony if you’re a hardcore erotica writer. Those things usually don’t mix. Now, when you create specific posts that may fit the criteria and posting guidelines of some of these posts, share away! Not only are you helping the reach of your post and possibly the engagement, you’re sharing content that this specific group of people wants to see. For example, you’re in a group about paranormal romance and you see a meme about Edward Cullen. The Twilight fans in that group would go absolutely insane being reminded of the books they adore. Now they’re sharing YOUR meme to THEIR page where their friends who are also Twilight fans see it and share it to THEIR pages. Now you’ve got your very first viral post.
Remember: In the world of Social Media content is KING 👑.
In the past, an author’s personal website was the holy grail of finding information on our most beloved writers and storytellers. From book tours to correct reading order, to a mailing address where you could send fanatical letters and wail about the death of your favorite characters. Like a brick house we built with our bare hands, they were our personal spaces, our platforms through which we reached our readers. But, with the rise of blogging and social media, the authors website is slowly fading into antiquity. Or is it? Times are constantly changing and with it comes a flux of new technology and social platforms that overwrite the old. If you’re a millennial like me you no doubt witnessed the death of MySpace and the rise of Facebook and Twitter. But, who’s to say that in ten years these popular sites will still be around? Having a Facebook “like” page and a booming twitter account are fine, but in the case that Facebook nosedives at any time in the future, having your own platform that’s controlled solely by you may be your only saving grace. I can already hear you screaming at me, “But websites are expensive! I can’t afford that!” and “I don’t know how to code a website! I can’t be in control of something I know nothing about!” Relax friends and colleagues, I’m here to provide a comprehensive guide on building a simple website that you can operate without entirely on your own. Follow along and in three simple steps, you will have your own FREE platform that no one can take from you, not even the Facebook banning police. I know we’ve all had our run in with those jerks. Here we go!
STEP ONE: Choosing a host website
There are many platforms that allow you to host your website with a custom domain name, which is what we’ll be using here so that you completely “own” your website. The host I think is the best and personally use is Tumblr.com. Tumblr is a blogging website that allows users to create their own blogs and seamlessly share content from millions of users all around the world. This both allows authors to find and interact with new and prospective fans while simultaneously keeping their blog or website fresh with new content. I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume you already have an email address. If not, I highly recommend Gmail for all your emailing needs. Grab your email and navigate to http://www.tumblr.com and create an account. Account creation is extremely simple. Simply enter your email address, password and select a username. I suggest creating a username that in some way correlates to what you’re trying to accomplish. AuthorJenineHadwick is perfectly fine as apposed to PrincessPonyGlitterBootyShorts. I’m serious, tumblr usernames get pretty rediculous. Now, open up a new tab and get ready for step two.
STEP TWO: Acquiring a domain name
Head over to http://www.dot.tk/. This is your domain provider. A domain provider, in a nutshell, is a computer network server where your website will be hosted 24 hours a day, seven days a week without disruption. Essentially, your personal computer, the one you’re using right now could act as a host for your website. With a few apps and minor HTML and coding knowledge, you really wouldn’t need a domain provider at all. Except for the fact that your computer isn’t turned on and connected to the internet all day every day and your internet connection probably wouldn’t have the strength to support all the people flocking to your website. Domain names usually range in price from $10 a month to over $100 a year for a .com domain. But, with the dot.tk website, you will be
provided with a .tk domain name completely free of charge. Yes, COMPLETELY free. The only catch is that you have to renew your domain name every year. But, for a free website, that doesn’t seem too daunting now does it? Head over to http://www.dot.tk and pick your domain name. Now, this will be the NAME of your website, the name through which users will find you. For example, my website is http://www.acgreenlee.com. I opted to pay for a .com domain name for personal reasons but, notice how simple the web address is. Your domain name could be anything from FamousAuthorHeather.tk to HankHillSellsPropane.tk. Just make sure it’s exactly what you want and something you won’t regret choosing later. After checking that your domain is available, proceed to the signup process.
Select Use DNS.
For the IP address slots, enter the IP from Tumblr (126.96.36.199) in both slots.
Select 12 Months from the drop down menu.
Enter the CAPTCHA.
Head back over to tumblr:
Click Settings (the gear icon) at the top of your Dashboard.
Click the blog you’d like to update on the right side of the page.
Click the pencil to the right of the username section and enable “Use a custom domain.”
Enter your domain (e.g. mywebsite.tk).
Click “Test your domain.”
Correct problems if the test finds any, and click “Test your domain” until the test is successful.
If you navigate to your username.tumblr.com blog and it tells you that theres a problem, don’t panic, this is a good thing! It means tumblr is pointing correctly to your domain name and all there’s left to do is wait until all the mechanical stuff updates iteslf. Now lets move onto step three, the fun part!
STEP THREE: Customization
The thing I love most about tumblr is how easily customized it is, even if you have no knowledge of coding. After you’ve beaten your website into shape and you have your AuthorsWebsite.tk website set up and tested, head back to tumblr and go Blog Settings and Edit Theme. You can choose from a million free (and paid if you’re about that life) themes to make your website look however you want. By uploading a header image and profile picture, most themes will give you an entirely personalized website at the push of a button. For even more personalization, hit Edit HTML in your blog editor and get ready for your first, simple HTML coding lesson. Head over to any free tumblr theme code site (we’re going with http://kawaiilayouts.com just because I love them) and copy one of their free theme codes. Head back over to the Edit HTML section of your tumblr editor, select the HTML that’s already there, hit paste, update preview and TADA. Completely new website with the click of a button.
With your new website you’ll be able to truly build an authors platform independent of any social media sites personal fate. And, in the case that something happens to tumblr, there are quite literally a million different alternatives to hosting, and your domain provider dot.tk even has its own page builder if you ever want to cut your ties to a host all together. You can have your cake and eat it to by using social media in conjuncture with your personal website, extending your reach and your influence exponentially. Make them work with each other and for each other! Now that you have the foundation laid out for you, what are you still doing here? Go! Go build a website!

Next on our list of character introductions is our spunky heroine, Victoria.
Adorable to look at, our heroine is a fiery little number with a potty-mouth and a penchant for getting her way, even if it means resorting to violence. Although she isn’t physically the strongest, she uses her enhanced mental prowess to overcome any obstacle she finds in her way. Now introducing, Victoria Bouchard, Kaizer’s Angel.
Zodiac: Virgo exists in the mind, everything is inside. To the world, Virgo presents a calm and collected exterior, but on the inside, nervous uncontrolled energy resides. They are constantly trying to figure things out, how to improve everything; analyzing and thinking. Virgo can tire itself out without even moving! Virgo has a constant drive to improve and perfect, this can lead to extreme pickiness and finickiness. They are pure, their motives are honest, never malicious and they want to accomplish something.
General information: Since she was a small child, Victoria has always had problems with her sight, a fact which often left her ostracized by her siblings and classmates. A true daddy’s girl, her only friend and confidant growing up was her father Percy Bouchard, who doted on the girl, spending a good portion of his time making sure she felt right at home. During her teenage years, Mr. Bouchard was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and spent the remainder of his life on earth in constant suffering. Victoria blamed herself. After her father’s death, she was sent to Harlan, Iowa to attend college at Viking Lake University, where she met and fell in love with Kaizer Dresden, a brilliant albeit lazy Grim Reaper. She knows his secret, to a certain extent, and he’s forever curious about the strange mental abilities she displays.
Personality Type: ISTJ – The Duty Fulfiller
Serious and quiet, interested in security and peaceful living. Extremely thorough, responsible, and dependable. Well-developed powers of concentration. Usually interested in supporting and promoting traditions and establishments. Well-organized and hard working, they work steadily towards identified goals. They can usually accomplish any task once they have set their minds to it.
Heroine Archetype: The SPUNKY KID – Gutsy and true, she is loyal to the end. She is a favorite of many writers, and for good reason. You can’t help but root for her. She’s the girl with moxie. She’s not looking to be at the top of the heap; she just wants to be in her own little niche. She’s the team player, the one who is always ready to lend a hand.
Best strengths: Intellection, Learner, badass adorable, little miss badass, badass adorable.
Ambitions: To graduate at the top of her class and later, help find the psychopath who’s making sashimi out of all her friends and classmates.
Internal conflict: She seems composed on the outside, but inside she struggles with the potential to do great evil in the world instead of good.
External conflict: She’s self-deprecating when it comes to her love for Kaizer. She can’t help but believe that she isn’t good enough for him.
Biggest fear: Failing. Whether it’s in life or a board game. She can’t stand to lose. Being blind, losing her sight and being ineffective…these are the fears that haunt Victoria Bouchard.
Bio: Victoria was born in Norfolk Virginia. As a child she always dreamed of attending Harvard, or generally any Ivy League school, but quickly realized that her dream would be far from possible with her parent’s limited income. Victoria was cursed with poor eyesight as well as seemingly limitless mental abilities. She soaks up information like a human sponge, processes data like a super computer and can sometimes even hear the thoughts of the people around her.
We’ll continue our list of characters tomorrow with Mr. Ezra Dresden, the Grim Reaper Führer himself. The epitome of a powerful ‘badass’ he’s quite literally every woman’s wet dream. I think you’ll enjoy him~! Until next time!
Hey guys! I know its been a while since I’ve updated here–feel free to hurl rotten tomatoes if you like. I’ve been busy with school, graduating and re-enrolling among other things, but most importantly, I finally finished the manuscript I’ve been hinting at for the last two years. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Genesis is complete and undergoing its first round of edits!
Cue the confetti!
Though I can’t say much about the project, in the weeks to come, I will be providing you with character pics, bios and full profiles in order to whet your appetite for the novel itself. And while, an actual release date is a little further down the line than I’d like, I’ll do my best to keep you posted on the final stages of its creation. Until then, I’ll unveil two promotional posters, the plot, and an excerpt just because I adore you guys!
Plotline: A dastardly serial killer is unleashed on the small town of Harlan, Iowa and he’s quickly making his way towards Viking Lake, a rural university that just so happens to be the home of Grim Reaper Kaizer Dresden, grounded to earth to serve a 150 year sentence after wrongfully reaping a soul. Though he is loathe to admit it, he has found the love of a young woman who’s interesting psionic abilities keep him on his toes and, at times, bring about more trouble than they’re worth. Together, Kaizer and Victoria team up to stop this impending threat, only to find that a mortal serial killer may be the very least of their worries. Genesis is a unique mix of Urban Fantasy, Action, Adventure, Romance and Science Fiction that will have you gripping the edge of your seats on a roller coaster ride into hell and back–Literally!
Victoria pulled back to stare at the dark storm clouds that gathered overhead, the crew falling silent around them
“Is it going to rain?” She asked, watching the Captain step forward, his face worried.
“Those aren’t storm clouds, lass.” Kaizer pushed Victoria off his lap and onto the platform as he climbed to his feet, frowning at the droplets of water that spattered against his face, the clouds bursting above their heads. He reached up to wipe the drops away, only to draw back fingertips stained red, the sound of thunder accompanying a bloody downpour.
“What the fuck is going on?” He asked, his spine tingling as lightning fissured across the sky. Before he could blink something sharp whizzed past his face, embedding itself in the floor just inches from where Victoria sat. They stared in awe at the gleaming spear, its shaft vibrating violently as it dislodged itself from the wood and clattered to the ground.
“C-Captain! Avast!” One of the crewmen shouted as something shot out of the clouds, its enormous black wings stirring up a maelstrom that rocked the ship beneath their feet. The crew struggled to hold on, to stay oriented in the storm as the creature landed in a flurry, folding one of the sailors to the ground as piercing shrieks filled the air around them. The man’s panicked screams sent fear rocketing through them as Charon appeared at his side. Lifting his arm in an arc, he sent a wave of energy at whatever attacked his mate, only to be blown backwards as the creature lifted its head to screech at him, the power of its voice alone enough to send the man toppling over backwards. Its face was pale and gaunt, it’s feminine body clothed in gleaming silver armor as bright blue eyes stared out at them menacingly from beneath it’s winged helmet. In place of feet the creature sported gigantic birdlike talons, barely hidden by its metal shin guards. It dipped its head again, wrapping it’s pointed, beak-like jaws around the man’s jugular, his screams ending in a painful gurgle as a fountain of blood mingled with the pouring rain. Charon hobbled to his feet with the support of his crew, unable to believe the sight before him.
“Harpies!” He shouted in warning as they were swarmed by the screaming, winged creatures. The ship erupted into chaos. The deck was flooded, motivating the crew to take action as they brandished swords and shields to protect themselves from the attack, their grunts of pain and cries of terror forming a fortissimo of sound that drowned out the violent thunder rumbling in the distance. The creatures attacked with swords and spears, driving the men onto their heels as their blades clashed, breaking shields and bone with unbridled power.
“Victoria, move!” Kaizer yelled as he dove for her, snatching her out of her seat as she narrowly dodged the harpy that dropped onto the platform mere centimeters from where she sat.
“Kaizer!” She called as he cradled her against his chest and made a mad dash for the Captains cabin, leaping over unfortunate sailors who fell, slain by the beasts.
“Hold on!” He shouted as something slammed against his ankles, tripping him up and dropping them hard against the deck. His arms went about her waist as he rolled to avoid crushing her, just narrowly dodging the spear that would have impaled them both as the harpy shrieked and stabbed at them. He rolled right and lashed out, kicking her left knee hard enough to break it. She fell backwards screaming, giving him the opening he needed to roll again and leap to his feet. “Get inside Victoria!” He pushed her towards the cabin, cursing as he was once again sent sprawling to the floor, the shrieking woman clawing up his body, her blue eyes spitting flames of cerulean as she reached for his face. His fingertips blazed with green energy as a sickle appeared in both hands, their blades singing as he hooked them around the creature’s neck and pulled, sending her head rolling across the floor. Her body dropped, lifeless against him as he screwed his eyes shut to avoid the putrid spray of blood that covered him. Shoving the corpse away, he jumped to his feet and turned to survey the carnage. The sailors were completely overwhelmed as the creatures continuously dropped out of the sky, the disorienting rain soaking them to the bone. Captain Charon was holding his own as was Zain, who stood perched on the railing, spinning his glowing scythe expertly as he felled his attackers with very little energy. If he didn’t know any better, he’d swear the man’s eyes were closed. Kai cursed, once again reminded of his limitations. As usual, he’d just have to make due with what he had. “This is not going to be pretty!” He growled. Damning his luck, he ran blindly into the fray and planted his foot into the back of a sailor doubled over in pain. Using him as leverage he sailed right into a ring of harpies who’d subdued a sailor, their expert blades slicing and stabbing at his body until he’d gone completely still. Kaizer hit the ground hard, startling them into flight as he flipped his sickles over his hands and sliced through the air, hooking the blades in the flesh of their wings to cut through tendon and bone before they hit the deck screaming in pain…
That’s all I can share for now. Be on the lookout for updates on Genesis as well as more promotional posters, excerpts, teasers and all things Grim Reaper in the weeks to come. Until next time!

Put the Gun Down
August 15th 1967
The black, 1967 Fleetwood Cadillac pulled up to the curb like the Grim Reaper arriving late to a funeral; filled with acrid smoke that wafted from her red lips and the cigar dangling from her delicate fingertips. There was a time in her life when she wouldn’t have even bothered coming back for him, but after all the shit she’d gone through for that man, she’d be damned if she didn’t give him everything he deserved and more.
“Here’s fine Alicia. Leave the car running.” She exhaled, a plume of fragrant smoke leaving her lips in a ring, breaking against her sisters shoulder where she sat behind the steering wheel. She was dressed completely in black, her head covered by a dark silk scarf that partially concealed her face and large, opaque sunglasses. She called it her disguise. Her way of hiding herself in plain sight. And while she tried to hide, to remain anonymous, her elder sister opened the back door, stepping out onto the pavement dressed in the brightest red dress she could find. Her hair fell in a halo of golden pin curls around her pretty face, her heels clicking quietly against the concrete as she clenched her cigar between her teeth and moved towards O’Malleys, an Irish establishment her husband was known to frequent. A bar. A grill. And a cheap hotel all on the same lot. There was nothing old O’Malley didn’t offer his patrons and the exact same could be said for his wife. The place was usually empty during the day, making it a little surprising to find early drinkers already inhabiting the parking lot, all of them turning to stare, as if they knew instinctively to gather on this day. One that they would never forget.
They gawked and stared as she passed, undoubtedly unnerved by the glint of silver in her right hand. Though they all gasped or recoiled in shock, no one moved to stop her. As if they could. Her heels carried her up the short wooden stairs and into the hotel lobby, her footfall muted by the stained burgundy carpet as she cut a slow right down a long hall. With every step she took her life flashed before her eyes, her childhood, the day of her graduation, even her failure of a wedding day. But none of it felt more rewarding, more fulfilling than the memory she lived at that very moment. It wasn’t long until she reached room 108, his personal favorite, the sound of movement inside bringing a twisted smile to her face. Her Nolan wasn’t a very smart man, but then again, few of them could actually claim that title. He wouldn’t be the first to think he could get away with what he did, but he would certainly be the last. The unlucky sonofabitch. She lifted her left hand slowly to rap lightly on the door, uttering a muffled ‘Room service’ to its occupants. Mere seconds passed until the door swung open, revealing the startled face of a man caught in the act.
“Hello dear.” Her right hand shot into the air, stuffing the barrel of a .45 in that astonished, repentant mug of his. He lifted his hands into the air, his feet carrying him quickly backwards as she entered the room and kicked the door closed with her heel. There was a woman there, just as she’d assumed, naked and scrambling for her clothes as her mouth opened to let rip a scream. “Go ahead. Open that pretty little mouth of yours, if you dare. You’ll be sucking on a lot more than a cock when they drag your body out of here.” She warned and the woman sobbed, dropping her things as she headed for the bed, the direction in which her attacker motioned with the barrel of her gun.
“Adelaide! This isn’t what it looks like, sweetheart.” He sweated, seating himself shakily on the edge of the disheveled mattress. His blue eyes were wild with fear, darting around the room for a way to escape or better yet, something he could use to disable her.
“Of course it isn’t. This is just another business meeting, right?” Her thumb drew back the hammer, cocking her peacemaker as Nolan jumped and attempted to explain everything away, as if his words could ever make anything better.
“Honey, baby, please. We can talk about this.” He lifted his hands in placating gestures as his whore continued to cry, her painted face a wreck of an oil painting as mascara ran.
“Oh?” Adelaide asked, her arm swinging right as she pulled her trigger, recoiling as the lead sped through the woman’s skull, splattering blood, gray matter and skull fragments on the shoddy wallpaper behind her. Her body slowly slid off the bed, hitting the floor with a lifeless thump, “It’s really a shame I didn’t come here to talk.”
“Adelaide put the gun down–!” His heroic shout ending in another gunshot, and then another, and another, and another as she left his chest cavity riddled with bullet holes. He oozed blood, the crimson liquid staining the bed and carpet, rolling across the floor to the toes of her shoes. She breathed a sigh of relief, flicking her burning cigar onto the bed where it singed a nice sized hole in the sheets before igniting the entire mattress. Satisfied, she turned and walked away.
“Over the river and through the woods, to grandmothers house we go…” Kaiser hummed only to be smacked with the end of Victoria’s blanket as she glared from him down at the tiny GPS device in her hands. She was wrapped up in the seat next to him, her face illuminated by the glow of the LCD screen as she searched for a way out of the endless maze of a forest he’d driven them into. They’d been running around in circles for hours now, miles away form civilization with less than half a tank of gas to get them home and their minor food supply–that had mostly consisted of diet coke, skittles and the odd Twinkie–already depleted. She was hungry, tired and grouchy and Kaiser’s constant harassment over her clothing was no help to her mood.
“Shut up. I don’t want anymore of your teasing. You’re the reason we got lost in the first place.” She grumbled from around the fat, two month old peppermint stick clutched between her teeth, her only defense against a stomach that demanded sustenance.
“I can’t help it you chose to wear red, or that I’m having dirty Little Red Riding Hood fantasies right now. How about you be Dirty Little Red and ride me on the hood?” He grinned, only to once again be reprimanded for his cheeky behavior with a smack in the head. They’d made plans to eat at a pleasant restaurant that took the form of a cabin high in the Colorado mountains, but only ended up getting lost and driving around for most of the day. They’d stopped into a small town earlier in the evening, but the idiot Grim Reaper refused to ask for directions and only ended up getting them even more lost after they’d been run out of town. All she wanted to do now was make it back to their hotel so they could spend the last night of their vacation in peace. But with the car begging for gas and the blinking check engine light fading in and out of view, it didn’t look as if that would happen any time soon.
“Oh great, now what?” She asked as he pulled the car to the side of the small dirt road on which the travelled. The vehicle instantly began spitting smoke as it died, just inches away from the metal guard rail.
“You’ve got to be kidding me.” He sighed, pushing open his door and going around to pop the hood. Victoria watched him wave smoke out of his face, poking around with the steaming hot inner workings of the car. Kaiser cursed and she frowned.
“What is it?”
“The damn radiator’s leaking. I think we may have hit something a while back and punctured it, the damn car is spilling all types of shit all over the place.” He growled, pulling a hose out of the cars innards and yelping as it scalded his palm.
“Can you fix it?” She asked and he scoffed.
“Why do women automatically assume that we’re mechanics just because we’re male? Woman, I don’t know shit about this car other than how to drive it. I can barely work the radio.” He griped and she huffed.
“Well don’t get pissy with me, I didn’t break the damn thing. You were driving, asshole!”
“Woman! Just sit there and let me handle this!” He bit back and she rolled her eyes, folding her arms over her chest as she turned her head to stare out the window. It was so dark, with nothing to illuminate the area around them save her little GPS, the burning headlights and the full moon above their heads. She watched darkness swirl between the trees as a light fog settled over the area. It would have been beautiful, had dread not settled into her stomach at that very moment. Victoria’s eyes narrowed on the shadows moving around them, an ominous feeling blanketing her in muted fear. Kaiser cursed again beneath the hood, his outburst causing her to jump as her nerves got the better of her. “Goddammit Kaiser, get it together.” He berated himself and she sighed, leaning back against her seat as she pulled the blanket tighter around her. She had no reason to be afraid. So long as Kaiser was around, nothing could hurt her. “I probably shouldn’t do this but, maybe it could help?” She listened to him whisper, seconds before the headlights went out and the radio went dead.
“Kai….what the fuck did you do?” She asked with a growl and he sighed.
“I think I killed the battery.” He answered sheepishly.
“You do realize that our cellphones aren’t charged, right?”
“You are also now aware that we can’t call for help, right?”
“You know I’m going to fucking kill you, don’t you?”
“Get in this car NOW!” She seethed, watching him hang his head, slam the hood down and amble around to his side of the car. He slid into the–thankfully–still warm interior and gave her a sheepishly apologetic glance.
“I’m sorry.” He pursed his lips, wincing at her glare. “I said I was sorry, dammit.”
“What are we going to do? We’re stuck here with no way home, no phones to call for help and it happens to be freezing outside. Sooner or later the heat in here is going to run out and we’re going to freeze to death.” She said and he grinned.
“I know one way I can keep us warm.” He said, only to be smacked again.
Astrological sign: Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, and that shouldn’t be taken lightly — nor should Scorpios! Those born under this sign are dead serious in their mission to learn about others. There’s no fluff or chatter for Scorpios, either; these folks will zero in on the essential questions, gleaning the secrets that lie within. Scorpios concern themselves with beginnings and endings, and are unafraid of either; they also travel in a world that is black and white and has little use for gray. The curiosity of Scorpios is immeasurable, which may be why they are such adept investigators. These folks love to probe and know how to get to the bottom of things. The fact that they have a keen sense of intuition certainly helps.
The Scorpion symbolizes Scorpio, and that is no accident. Much like the Scorpion would rather kill itself than be killed, those born under this sign are in ultimate control of their destiny. It is life on the Scorpion’s terms, too, since these folks promote their agenda (they are quite the executives) and see to it that things go forward. Others may find this overbearing (it can be) and even self-destructive, but that’s the beauty of the Scorpio: they have tremendous regenerative powers, much like the literal Scorpion can lose its tail and promptly grow a new one. Fearless Scorpios rarely lose; they just keep on going, since they are stubborn and determined to succeed (this Scorpio trait is in keeping with the Fixed Quality assigned to this sign). Scorpios work as hard as they do so they can someday sit back and feel satisfied with themselves. These folks are intense, passionate and filled with desire. They’re also complex and secretive, so don’t expect to get much out of them, lest they become suspicious and exit stage left. It’s best not to bet against Scorpios, either, since these folks are surprisingly resourceful.
Chinese zodiac: Occupying the 2nd position on the Chinese Zodiac, Oxen possess such character traits as dependability, strength and determination. Oxen are tolerant individuals who believe that the road to success involves hard work and scrupulous behavior; they don’t believe in taking shortcuts. They characterize those who don’t work hard as lazy individuals not worthy of respect.
Oxen are capable of trusting others and will listen to their opinions with an open mind. However, Oxen prefer making decisions that are based on their own research. Oxen favor strong, life-long alliances to casual acquaintances.
Home is where Oxen go to seek comfort, occasionally watching television or reading. They prefer the rural outdoors and spend the majority of their “home” time working in the garden or caring for the yard.

Cavaletti Family History:
Niccolo Cavaletti was the grandson of Edgar Cavaletti, a living vampire who was the first member of the house of judges to successfully have a case overthrown for lack of evidence, thus exposing the botched legal system of the sanctioned five who based their verdicts on their particular like or dislike of an accused party instead of facts.
Niccolo, who followed in his grandfather’s footsteps and took the place of one of the sanctioned five fathered two children, Natalia and Elijah. The twins were expected to be excellent judges, except, Elijah had no plans of following his father into a career he deemed boring and worthless. Just after his twenty-ninth birthday he started an uprising, murdering his parents and a slew of other vampires before he and his band of two hundred were finally brought to justice. His sister Natalia escaped the carnage and sought refuge in the house of Leviticus where she eventually became the first living vampire to switch houses. She fell in love with a male Leviticus by the name of Esmond, a man exiled from his family and unable to give his last name to his new bride. Thus the Cavaletti legacy was able to continue. The two went on to give birth to three children, two girls and a son they named for her late father, Niccolo.
Niccolo Cavaletti the second went on to marry a woman named Lucretia, the daughter of a very wealthy Leviticus executioner. He fathered seven boys; Paris, Joshua, Bartholomew, Arden, Lucio, Micah and finally Giovanni. Niccolo, who was set to retire from being one of the sanctioned three who ran the house of Leviticus watched his sons fight for the right to take his place, most of them killing each other until only Lucio, the eldest of the three, Micah, who never wanted his seat of power in the first place, and Giovanni, the youngest of his seven children remained. When he decided the youngest would be the best candidate to take his place and would thus become the youngest person in history to assume a sanctioned position, his son Lucio attacked him and cut his heart from his chest, turning him into one of the undead. In a fit of rage over the death of his father, Giovanni attacked his elder brother and commit him to the same fate. Micah and Giovanni, aside from their mother Lucretia, are the last remaining heirs of the Cavaletti blood line. Micah, an eccentric painter moved to Paris some time ago, leaving his well known glass company to his then seventeen year old brother and hasn’t been heard from since, leaving the now twenty eight year old to govern the family estate on his own.
