Homemade Ice Tea Goodness, but am I throwing Shade at the Arizona brand?

5 teacups of hot brewing black tea, a quarter cup of sugar, and a 2 liters of water later and here you have it Creepy Shelby's speciality homemade ice tea. Pfft. Who the hell needs Arizona? No shade just tea. XD Just kidding. I would have a million zillion cans of Arizona in my fridge right now, the truth is.... okay... I am broke af. THERE I SAID IT. Credit cards are maxed and I am just a little itty bitty sort-of struggling Indie Author trying to make her mark on the world. I will update you guys soon on my progress and the steps I am taking to kick ass at the highly competitive self-publishing game. So stay tuned. And as for the usage of the word tea and shade? Come on you've gotta have heard it. Or maybe its just me lol. 

YEP, I think I've been watching a little bit too much of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. But who can get enough of Kenya Moore, Nene Lakes, Cynthia Bailey, Porsha Williams, Kandi Burruss, and Phaedra Parks? Not me! Oh yeah and let us not forget Sheree because she's taking over. *cough cough* Lol no I actually fancy Sheree from the original RHOL days. I just get her. Too bad Kenya is coming hard for her though. Come on Ms. Moore what is that about! She initially treated you way better than Nene ever did. By the way I am sooooo gonna read her debut book. Looks like some juicy juicy tea will be spilling all over the pages in that one.

Also I admire Sheree's determination for getting Chateau Sheree done. It may be taking a decade but strong women JUST.DON'T. GIVE UP. YAAAAS girl, it doesn't matter how long it takes you. A smart woman once said "accuracy over speed." And I hope you soon get to live in your dream house. You will be the last one laughing.



First You Read It, Then You Die: "Something (Wisteria#1)", The New "The Ring" Movie, and More!








February can't come soon enough! Easily one of the most terrifying horror movies that still haunts me from my childhood, The Ring is making a new comeback, titled Rings. A glimpse of the trailer will promise you that we are in for quite a scare. It is wonderfully directed by F. Javier Gutiérrez and produced by Laurie MacDonald and Walter Parkes. I feel a sense of inspiration too and a new feeling of excitement about my book Something (Wisteria 1) as it pays homage to this legendary horror film. Here's the blurb and notable praises I has gotten thus far. And if you haven't already, you can pre-order your copy just for just a buck on Amazon. It will be listed at that price for a limited time only. So hurry!

if you dare...







“I will find true love and everything will be okay. I will find true love and everything will be okay…” she chanted.

They say be careful what you read. Something is wrong. Something is very wrong. It can happen to anyone. This is just four teenagers’ story. Aubrey Golding hates her face, her body, and is devastated after Nathan Silva leaves her. Alone, suicidal, and desperate for love, she discovers a book called Something and unknowingly links others to a dark and terrifying curse that is beginning to consume her. Nathan is glad to be moving on with someone new and can hardly believe what is happening now. Wild child and amateur porn star, Bella Broadhurst, loves bullying that “emo whore” Aubrey with the other girls, but mostly she loves partying, hookups, and plain ol’ drama when terror arises. And Kendra Coke is just a new teen mother working on a delicate relationship when things start becoming utterly bizarre. Chilling sleep disturbances and figures hiding in the corners of their rooms are just warnings of what is to come. Be careful what you read, they say. Tread carefully.

"Extremely well-written and almost gothic in nature, Something (Wisteria #1) is horror at its best. While Lamb borrows heavily from the movie, The Ring, she puts her own spin on it. Reading could kill you? You bet! Horror doesn't get any scarier than books out to murder people." -Bestselling author N.N. Light

"5 out of 5 stars for this excellent, suspenseful horror novel, and I am already looking forward to the next book in the series." -OnlineBookClub.org

"I have never read anything like this book before, and I'm sure I won't read anything similar for a long time." -Fortheloveofbooksreviews.blogspot.com

not a creepy book but I am OBSESSED






Sonya Sones knows how to melt your heart, even a cold, horror-loving, heart like mind. And trust me, that says a lot. She knows how to warm you, touch you, in exactly the right moments when you least expect it and adorably so without trying too hard. The characters were very real and Sones flawlessly captured the sweet naïve voice of a teen girl discovering herself as well as the many victories and confusions involving relationships. Typically a fan of darker books, I never expected to gush over such a cute girly little book. But What My Mother Doesn't Know has reminded me to never underestimate the power of good writing no matter the subject. Shockingly, I found this romantic ride very thrilling, and there were definitely many laugh out loud parts. My heart was literally racing alongside with the protagonist's as I genuinely felt like an innocent young girl falling in love for the first time.
