Tuesday Twist - makeover style!

Hello! Happy Tuesday!!!

I know you all love tuesday twist and this one just got a little more fun (if you don't wanna see the fun scroll down for the list)!!! I was able to go to the Lisa McMann signing at Blue Willow (and what a blast it was!!) she told us about her upcoming novel The Unwanteds (trust me - you'll want this series)! Follow her on twitter, she's a serious case of awesome!

So here is a pic of her and I hanging at Blue Willow (she is the ultimate author - sweet, funny, and fun)! So of course I'll be sharing a sentence of her newest novel (you just won't know which one it is until you look)!



I also decided to take some pics of my new loft writing/reading/tv place! I love it!!! Hope you do too! Below are a few pics!
1. Writing space! (You'll find notebooks, collage pieces, markers, the works!)

2. My library!!! (zebra style! I'm not as lucky as the rest of you with a thousand books, however with my collection starting last January - 2010 I think I'm doing okay!) 3. Even one of my cats love it (if you can see her! Ellie isn't one for hanging out on the second floor but she's made it her home!)

4. View from the TV room! (nothing like a multi-functional space)!

So now for the real business...

The Sentence
1. Daddy said, "Let mom go first."
2. I could feel everyone looking at me, but I was used to it.
3. When it is over, We breathe and ache like old oak, like peeling birch.

The Twist
1. Secret Revealed
2. Secret Revealed
3. Secret Revealed

I kid you not everyone of these books is sure to rock your socks off. Buy your copy immediately! Glad you stopped by, hope you enjoyed me showing off my space!

That was so fun and oooh, what an AWESOME book cover she's got. It sent chills straight up my spine. Great post Jen - have a fabulous day. Jealous of your writing area FYI!

Liz Pezzuto said...

Love the writing area! I have big plans to makeover my office, which is kinda meh right now. We writers need a dedicated place to help us focus and stay organized! :)

How fun! And what a cool writing space!

Suzie F. said...

It's so great to have a space of your own to write. Love it!

Em-Musing said...

Love your new space. Are you working in it yet? It's so clean. How long before you clutter it up with W.I.P.'s? That's the messy, fun part.

salarsenッ said...

Love the writing space. Great stuff! And that rug is the bomb!

Ellie said...

Your writing space is amazing! I'm not in the least bit jealous. Honest. LOL.

What an adorable writing space! I love that zebra rug so much. Just too cute!

Mariah Irvin said...

Um, I think you actually have more books than me! My bookcase is pretty small, though.

Erinn said...

I'm reading the first one, right now! Awesome pick

Cinnamon said...

So jealous you had a chance to see Lisa McMann. I was supposed to go when she was here in the DFW area last Friday, but illness sidelined me...sigh.

Oh, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE all my books, but no matter how often I organize, it looks like a library exploded in my office. Wish it was cute like yours!

Matthew Rush said...

I think I know that first one, because I'm reading it now, and it has one of the most incredible openings ever!

Awesome writing space.

Christina Lee said...

I am soooo jealous of your rug Jen... if I lived closer to you... you might have to worry it would go missing hahaha

Michelle Merrill said...

I totally love your new office space! I wish I had one of my own. Way to make a multi-functional space :)

That's awesome that you got to go to the book signing.

I love your hair, by the way :)

T C Mckee said...

Lovely writing area. Very organized and clean. I love it. Can I borrow it from time to time? I almost picked up Beastly just yesterday. I'm heading back to B&B. A sign is a sign.

Talli Roland said...

Wow, I love your space - especially the zebra rug! Fantastic - I'm jealous.

Nicole Zoltack said...

I'm so jealous of your office!

Jen Daiker said...

Holy Zach Attack I'm feeling the love today! Not apart from any other day, you always make me feel welcome peeps!!!

That being said I know these pictures are junk due to the lack of lighting (or one big lamp that shines to the god knows where)!

alexia said...

Yay! What a pretty office space and library!

Kass said...

Happy Writing!

Donea Lee said...

Ooooo - #3 really spoke to me. Beautiful language! And lucky, lucky you!!! I sooo need to go to more author signings. I'm going to make it a point to go to Elana's for Possession - as a fellow UT girl, I'm sure she'll be signing close by when her book releases - yay! Love your space ~ and the pink hair. :)

I love your zebra rug and apparently your cat does too! Great space for such a creative mind! Thanks for stopping by the Hollow!...:)JP

Abby Minard said...

Love your space! The zebra rug adds a fun touch!

lynnrush said...

Love the writing space. That Zebra rug is to die for. Very nice. :)

Hanny said...

Your new space looks very comfortable! And don't be in such a rush to get those thousand books until you try moving them into a third-floor apartment! My back still hurts!

Jemi Fraser said...

Love all of these - and I can't wait to read them all!!!! :)

Nicki Elson said...

Methinks Kitty has a thing for Zebras. :) Your new writing space looks great and very inspirational.

Dianne K. Salerni said...

I love your writing space! Wow! I have no writing space. :( I let my family chase me from room to room, carrying my laptop to escape TV shows, video games, and other noisy, non-writing-conducive stuff.

In the summer, I write by my pond, and that's nice. But I need a winter hangout. You just may just have inspired me to get busy on that!

Colene Murphy said...

Your space is INCREDIBLE!! Just call me greeeen.

Kathi Oram Peterson said...

What wonderful spaces! And I love your riddles and links. Great idea.

Travis Erwin said...

Samantha Sotto-Yambao said...

That looks like a great writing cave :)

Awh, man! We should have gone to this. I hear you'll be at the Rachel Hawkins event, so I'll see you there! I'll be the nutcase tagging along with Kristin!
