Flirt Squad Challenge: What are YOU passionate about?

by - 12:00 AM

Hey guys!

So, as you can see by that wonderful blog button to the right that am a part of the Flirt Squad, the street team/fan club for Rachel Harris.

Soon her second book in the My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century series will be out and to celebrate we're doing all sorts of fun stuff to prepare the world for A Tale of Two Centuries!

I've already had the privilege to read this book and my review will be out on Step Into Fiction on August 6th!

In order to get ready, like I said, we're doing a bunch of fun stuff. Namely, we're having a bunch of challenges! This week's challenge is to write about what we're passionate about, or who we are and what we do or want to do with this great big thing we call life.

So, this blog post is about what I am, what I'm passionate about. Or we could have made a collage or something or other that shows what Less is passionate about  (theater.)


I decided to combine the two. I painted. I love to paint. I'm not saying I'm super great or anything, but it's something I love to do and it makes me feel a million times better after I do.

Then I thought about Less. How she's constantly struggling to find an in-between. Highs and lows. Light and Darkness.

She reminded me of Persephone from the Greek Myth. To go or to stay...so I painted what I felt when I thought of Less, and Austin and ATOTC in general.

I call this one "Hades and Persephone."


As you can tell it's abstract. It's what you make of it. It's lightness, it's darkness, it's a little bit of something else. It's Less. It's passion thrown in the mix. It's abstract because, like theater it is what YOU make of it.

(Those little brass looking things are the bottom of the easel clips.)

So, that's my passion - painting and letting the viewer bring what they will to it. My canvas may be colored, but it's still blank - it's still waiting for what YOU add to it.

So, what is your passion?


And here's the wonderful book that inspired it all!

A Tale of Two Centuries (My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century #2)
Rachel Harris
Entangled Teen; August 6th, 2013
Paperback; 320 pages.


Alessandra D’Angeli is in need of an adventure. Tired of her sixteenth-century life in Italy and homesick for her time-traveling cousin, Cat, who visited her for a magical week and dazzled her with tales of the future, Alessandra is lost. Until the stars hear her plea.

One mystical spell later, Alessandra appears on Cat’s Beverly Hills doorstep five hundred years in the future. Surrounded by confusing gadgets, scary transportation, and scandalous clothing, Less is hesitant to live the life of a twenty-first century teen…until she meets the infuriating—and infuriatingly handsome—surfer Austin Michaels. Austin challenges everything she believes in…and introduces her to a world filled with possibility.

With the clock ticking, Less knows she must live every moment of her modern life while she still can. But how will she return to the drab life of her past when the future is what holds everything she’s come to love?


And the wonderful author!
 Rachel Harris!
As a teen, Rachel Harris threw raging parties that shook her parents’ walls and created embarrassing fodder for future YA novels. As an adult, she reads and writes obsessively, rehashes said embarrassing fodder, and dreams up characters who become her own grown up version of imaginary friends.
She grew up in New Orleans, watching soap operas with her grandmother and staying up late sneak reading her mam's favorite romance novels. Now a Cajun cowgirl living in Houston, she still stays up too late reading her favorite romances, only now, she can do so openly. She firmly believes life's problems can be solved with a hot, powdered-sugar-coated beignet or a thick slice of king cake, and that screaming at strangers for cheap, plastic beads is acceptable behavior in certain situations.
She homeschools her two beautiful girls and loves watching reality television with her amazing husband. She writes young adult, new adult, and adult Fun, Flirty Escapes, and LOVES talking with readers!
