Haha, have a button. Razz

Okay, Ari and Tammy are twins from my story The Family Secret (FS for short). Ray is also in FS.
Astra's twin is Valerian, and they are the main characters in The Surface of the Deep (or tSotD for short). Don't feel bad, I get things mixed up half of the time, too...and then there's all of the characters that you haven't even met yet.

And people wonder why I get so many headaches...ahaha. Wink

Wow, how do you come up with such great names? Remind me to contact you when I'm in a name-pinch. <3

How far are you in each novel? And could I possibly get a brief summary? Or is it still exclusively-novel's brain-only?

Names! I love names! I have Behindthename.com bookmarked. And I love helping others come up with names. PM me if you need help with that. Smile

Nah, it's not exclusive. Smile I actually have about 5 projects in the works right now, but I can only really work on one at a time...
Anyway, the projects are:

The Family Secret -- My baby and my first "serious" project. It's about a girl named Arianna (Ari for short) who is forced by an ancient pact to be turned into a vampire. She's always looked forward to it, but the reality is a lot different than what you see in the movies. I'm going to start the second draft when I finish revisions on tSotD.

The Surface of the Deep (aka tSotD)-- My NaNoWriMo '08 novel! Right now I'm in revisions. I sent out a few queries, but I'm stepping back from that for now. Basically, it centers around twins Valerian and Astra, who were raised on Earth by a woman that they believe is their aunt. But then they find out that, hey, she's not their aunt -- she's a woman in the resistance movement against the king of their home country! Which is on another planet! And Valerian and Astra, who apparently are very, very powerful, are key pieces in the revolution.

The Enigma -- I wrote the first draft in February, and I'll get back around to it eventually. Basically, it's about what happens when you mess around with the Spirit Realm and tick off a bunch of ghosts. It gets you tied up with Death and Lucifer. Yeah. Fun, fun.

Opal's Legacy -- I've been outlining on this one. It's nothing serious. Anyway, it's about a girl named Joy whose mother was murdered two years before the story takes place. Joy's mother, Opal, taught she and her friends all about music and helped them form their band, which they call Opal's Legacy. Joy's father is getting remarried, and Joy has to deal with it. Eh. It's a work in progress.

In Their Blood -- It's another vampire story...but this one has vampire HUNTERS as the protagonists. Muwahaha. I'm outlining right now.

Wow. I didn't even realize I was working on this much...I keep popping back and forth between them. My main project right now is tSotD, though, like I said. There's more info on most of these projects on my website, if you want to go look. The address is www.jenniferwhite.webs.com. (SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT! Haha.)

Heehee. I like you, Hadhafang. You let me prattle on about my projects! I love it when people let me do that! Razz

Oh hey, I had a character in a short named Ari once [although her full name was Ariadne]

I hope once day you become one of the best vampire-writers. This world needs an abundance of GOOD Vamp. lit.

Unfortunately, the only good vamp. book I've read is... well... nothing. I can't seem to be appeased by anything. I started reading Interview with the Vampire last summer, and enjoyed it, but unfortunately I only got 1/4 through it.

And I love BehindtheName! I use it all the time!

And don't worry about the prattling, I actually like listening to people talk nonstop. It helps to get me thinking. And plotting. Which eventually leads to... writing! Yay!
So just think of your rambling as a favor to me Wink

Woot woot!

I don't think I ever finished Interview...although I LOVED The Vampire Lestat and The Queen of the Damned. Have you read the Anita Blake books? Those are pretty awesome.
Heehee...my mom found a piece of FaceBook flair earlier that said "Vampires used to rock...but then one sparkled." It made us laugh so hard. xD And I have a shirt that says "And then Buffy staked Edward. The end."
Don't get me wrong, Twilight was okay, but I totally prefer the fang-and-coffin version.
Anywho...

Same. Twilight is just way too... not vampire-ish enough for me.
Have your read Dracula? I plan on getting around to this summer.

I love reading action. Especially action with magic/powers/unreality factors. Unfortunately I suck at writing it... XD

Dracula was goooooood. I liked it a lot. It took me a while to get through it (I normally eschew the classics) but I loved it. Ditto with Phantom of the Opera and A Tale of Two Cities.
Action is amazing! Especially when there are a lot of fantastic-amazing-awesome fight scenes. Which tSotD is full of. Muwahaha.

Well, I love them. A lot and you did say in your first post that you speak many languages!

Spanish: the bane of my existance!! Why is everyone better in Spanish than me??

Oooh! What's the language in your signature??? it sounds so pretty!

I also speak the same languages, minus the Spanish and Arabic. And plus Hindi.

YAY! Hindi is really pretty too. I have a whole lot of friends in school that speak Hindi so when we talk, they talk in Hindi and I reply in Urdu. Smile

And the language in my sig. is actually the Elven language J.R. Tolkien uses in the Lord of the Rings.
YAY! Where are you from Vampyr?

I figure that it's time for the most important question I'll ever ask you-- David Cook or David Archuleta [D'Arch]???

Okay, Twilight, I'm going to be completely honest with you:


Really, truly, sincerely....

Neither. But if i HAD HAD HAD to choose; it would be Cook.


Sorry. =[ Please don't hold it against me... <3

I love the Elf language! It's so pretty (unlike Esparanto and German. Honestly, they are such UGLY languages. No offence to anyone)

I'm from Pakistan. But I consider myself truly British!

Two Davids? *grumbles* That must be one hell of a popular name!

It's really fine with me. A lot of people think I'll get really mad or bite their head off if they say something bad about D'Arch but everyone has their own opinion and I respect that. Just, remember... Cheese is good to (I felt the need to be random)

I know you said Cook and all but, you are pretty cool. Smile

Oh, and for some reason I have D'Arch more on my mind than usual (I swear it's the strawberries). Have you heard his post-idol stuff??
