About Me

My photo
I spend the majority of my time on campus, either in class or busy with other things going on. In my spare time, I like to write short stories and novels. I'm majoring in Communications at the University of Delaware.

Publishers/ Authors

I would be pleased to review any books, whether they be advance copies or old ones. If you would like me to review a book, feel free to email me at ashley2055@gmail.com or leave a comment on any of my posts.

I will also do giveaways on merchandise if you would be interested in giving away copies of books or other items.

Thank you for your time and interest!

Short Stories

I love short stories. I think they can have a much bigger effect on the reader, because there aren't any rules. They can end mid-sentence, because it's only a short story. There's a lot less pressure for perfection, I think. I've written any short stories, a lot with the same characters (those ones really deserve books at some point) You can read any of the below on figment.com under the name Ashley C. Nicole!

Confessions on Walls

Two-hundred-and-nintey-one sticky notes will never be enough.

On her walls are nearly three hundred neon sticky notes, all
telling another confession from the head of a broken girl. Are
they enough, though? Are any amount of confessions enough to
explain something as complicated as Scarlett?

Fun Fact: This was written entirely in a spur-of-the-moment sort of thing. It's vague and random, but it's one of my best short stories. (At least, that's what I've been told.)




Waiting for Alice

She was never just another girl for him.

When Alice disappears from Wonderland, the Mad Hatter is left with unlimited questions about what could have been. No matter what he does, he's left with thoughts about only Alice.

What is the Mad Hatter willing to give up, though, to see Alice
again?

Fun Fact: I love all things dealing with Alice in Wonderland. It's such a mystical story. I wrote this for a contest, but I love it. I love the Hatter, and I'd like to think this story captures him well. 

The Summer of Charlotte Remington

*Storyline based on the rough details of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (which I have not read so any exact similarities were simply coincidences)*
Levi and Charlotte were friends, but they were never more. That was why Charlotte disappeared for three years, only to return with an expiration date stamped to her forehead. Is it ever too late to make up for the time lost? 

Fun Fact: I wrote this for a contest, hence the similarity to the book mentioned, and it turned out much better than I expected. It was an intense story to write and written in a different format than I usually use, which made it fun.



Not a Love Story

*Based on the characters from 500 Days of Summer* Tom Hansen has been waiting for the one while Summer Finn has just been having fun. When they come together, things fall apart and find their way back.
It's so many things, but it isn't predictable.

Fun Fact: I love the movie 500 Days of Summer. When I saw it was one of the choices for a contest, I knew I had to try to recreate the story. This story has one of my favorite passages that I've ever written. Because I love it so very much, here.


She had showed up at midnight, shaking her fists and cursing beneath her breath. I let her roll in, accepting the weight of her storm. Nina paced my living room and listed to me the ways Danny Vito was an asshole.

            He always wanted to party.

            He didn’t know when to stop drinking.
            His breath tasted like ashes and booze.
            He forgot to take her to lunch like he promised.
            His friends were pigs.
            He kissed her too roughly.
            “And Tom,” she said with a hiccup. “He’s not you.”


Enough


Kate and Levi met by chance in the Sovereign Light Cafe, but it was only the beginning of a whirlwind romance. Can she stand to risk it all, though? Can young love ever truly last?
*BASED ON KEANE'S "SOVEREIGN LIGHT CAFE"* 

Fun Fact: This was emotional but still a fun ride. I used the same formatting idea as "Not a Love Story", but I really like the characters in this story and would love to have them in a future book.
