Blog Post #1

 I'm soooo close to being done with Secret Passion's next chapter, but it's not gonna happen tonight. Very soon though.
I thought I'd post my first blog post till then because I've been meaning to do that all week as well.
I've been debating what I should post about, but then I took a walk earlier today and realized, I didn't have to look any further.
So my first item on the Rec List is this...

Unfiltered, majestic, awe-inspiring natural beauty <3
Where I go to get away from everything and relax.
If you're lucky enough to live near an ocean or lake, make sure you take advantage of it. Even if you happen to have a gaggle of kids that you need to supervise and make sure they don't pull each other's hair out, the calming effect will be there regardless.
If you're land-locked and far from any beach, go out to a park or any little slice of nature near you.
It's pretty spectacular how natural beauty surrounds each one of us, and sometimes life gets in the way of truly appreciating that.

Fun fact: it was on this beach that I dreamt up a story to be the mirror image of Desert Heat--another historical romance but set on the seas, not the barren dunes of the Thar. The sand beneath my feet reminded me of DH so strongly and then the ocean pulled me in another direction altogether. That idea hasn't gone away and whenever I find myself here, I'm reminded of it. Hopefully one day, I'll be able to type it up as I imagine it all in my head.

Rec List: the beach
Recc'd: 100%
Tips/Final Words: If you're like me and you decided to shave your legs literally ten minutes before you have to be out the door, make sure to rub on some baby oil, it will sting less once you're in the water--especially if it's salt water!


  1. "For whatever we loose (like a you or me)
    It's always ourself we find in d sea".

    Well i am always in love wth water body n ocean seems to hold too much within it. The moment d waves touch my feet its as if its taking always all my sorrows pain n stress, filling me wth positivity n peace.

Next Secret Passion Episode Now Up!

*waves* Hi everyone, So judging by the comments and view counts over the past couple of days (yes I keep a close eye on them lol) plus the sorta-kinda cliff hanger ending last time, I think it's more than time for an SP episode :)
Thank you for all your wonderful, thoughtful feedback *hugs* You all keep me sooo motivated to make SP the best it can be. Those wondering about other stories I've written like FL and DH, please see my comments on my last post below. I answered best as I can and more updates will be coming soon. Special shout out to Lahana. I hope you're enjoying your new phone and the fact that the first thing you did after getting it was to type in this blog's address and leave me a comment because you never could before... well, you made me speechless and really made my day *hugs*
Before I post the link to the extra long update, word of fair warning about Secret Passion--this chapter in particular. I know most of you are regular readers and know this already by n…

Important Note

Note (especially for Secret Passion Readers):

For a very personal reason, I have not been able to update in quite a while... I wish it was a nice, happy reason that keeps me away, but it's something quite devastating and deeply personal. I wish I could say more... but suffice to say, for a girl who likes to write only happily-ever-afters, dealing with real-life tragedy is never easy.
Writing has always been my escape and that somehow, what I've written has struck a chord with so many of you means a great deal. Thank you for that. Thank you to all those who took a chance not only on my fanfics, but Heartless, Bow-tied, Leather-strapped etc. as well.
I logged back in here after a really long time hoping reading some comments would lift my mood up as it usually does and partly, that worked. I haven't gotten through them all but a couple made an impression. First, shout out to Judy for your comments on Baby, Hold On. It's always nice to read such positivity and feedback--e…

Secret Passion Updated

Hi everyone! First of all, loved reading all the amazing comments on Fateful Love. Whether you were in a lecture, daydreaming or just thinking about this story, your feedback really made my day. Thanks for that!
Secret Passion readers, here's the next installment EPISODE 43: Hell is Here. Please mind all the warnings, this is dark stuff, but that's what this story has been heading to right from the start. I wish it was more fluff, but there's always Baby Hold On/Mind Games for that ;)
With this update, Secret Passion crosses 800 pages on Microsoft Word.
To put that into perspective, that's like three normal sized novels :O
And it's still going lol
Also, I'm happy to say that I'll be posting a release date for Heartless as well as more about the novellas for those interested this weekend--if life hopefully cooperates. *fingers crossed*
Happy Friday to each one of you! <3 Tina
