Do you love technology? (I know, that's a very weird way to start this... I'm sorry).
I always say that my technology skills stopped at the CD player. It isn't that I hate technology, it's that sometimes, it feels like technology hates me.
Things come in my house and just kinda die... course it might be my house more than me (I live in an old farm house that is over 100 years old and was renovated in about the 80s... so yeah. No telling what sort of energy sucking things are in here, but I digress.)
There is a point to this!
The point is that with my lack of technological understanding, I miss out on a few things. I didn't get a smart phone until three years ago because I didn't think I could handle it. GOOD NEWS, though. I've learned if I just shut it off and turn it back on, normally it fixes itself #miracle.
Also, yes, I've had the same phone for three years. It works...
I'm usually the last person to download an app or join a service. Though I am pretty good at youtube now and I can do instagram and all that. I've never been on the cutting edge of any app...
UNTIL NOW (I feel so cool).
There is this new app called INKLO. You can download it for free at inklo.com. No, they aren't paying me to tell you about them, but I AM excited because I'm part of the inklo family!
The app just came out in May, and I'm already a member/writer. This is huge for technologically deficient me. (Look out world. Kelly might get an iPad soon... doubtful, but you know...)
SO what is inklo? Inklo is what would happen if wattpad and instagram had a baby.
Yeah, I'll let you picture that for a moment.
Basically, it is an app where authors post episodes of stories and you can comment on parts you like, react to the story in real time, and find out behind the scenes secrets about the stories.
DID I mean it is FREE?
My first story on there is called SHIVER.
I love it! I love Ellis (she's so cool) and Noah (an oh so handsome ghost hunter). Then there is Ada... a 10 year old ghost who totally isn't going to murder you. Nope... totally. Totally not.
Most people won't buy a haunted house. Ellis Whitaker needs it. With the rise of home renovation shows and ghost hunting programs, Ellis decides it's about time someone combines the markets into one big house flipping/ghost adventure. She just has to convince a network to take a chance on an unknown like her. What's not unknown is the infamous Sanderson House and the tragedies associated with it. When Sanderson House comes on the market, she jumps at the chance to buy the dirt cheap mansion. Her first night there, handsome Noah Smith, who claims to be a paranormal investigator, knocks on her door and offers to help her with the spirit situation. She should have taken him up on his offer immediately because Sanderson House isn't your typical haunting. The ghosts can and will do anything they want. Anything to cause fear. Because that's what the house feeds on... fear. And it is very, very hungry.
Welcome to Sanderson House...
I absolutely love this story and I think the app is really cool! I'd love for you to download it and become part of the inklo family. New episodes of SHIVER air every Sunday at 9 am central.
There are also other books on there from romance to scifi to adventure to thrillers.
IF you get inklo on your phone, let me know so we can connect. My username is @kelly (you know an app is new if *I* get @kelly lol)
THIS WEEK, I'm obsessed with (I do this on my newsletter, but I should add it here too...)
*Being Human (US)
*British youtubers (for some reason)
*Dark chocolate almonds (much needed)
*TIME from Inception
*Interview with the Vampire coming to TV
*Dunkirk (I want to see it, but I don't know how my feels will feel)
That's it :) How do you feel about technology? Does it love you? Hate you? Do you have a mutual relationship of trust and love?
What about inklo? Have you downloaded it? I hope so because Shiver is exclusively there, and I want you to get to read it. Seriously, I love these people. I love the house. Some houses are just evil and yeah... Welcome to Sanderson House (as they say).
Talk to you soon!
