Follow Fest

Today I'm taking part in the Follow Fest along with many other bloggers. This is a chance to introduce ourselves and allow others to know us better and decide whether or not to follow us via social media.



Hi I'm Sheena-kay Graham happy blogger, christian, book lover and writer. Welcome to my blog.

Name: Sheena-kay Graham

Fiction or Non-Fiction?: Fiction

What genres do you write?: Young Adult. Whether I write Dystopia, Paranormal or Fantasy it generally falls under the YA umbrella. Recently though I've added one Middle Grade w.i.p. Monster City.

Are you published? : My YA Dystopia novella Sacrifice Her will be out in December. It is book one in my self-published The Sacrifice Series. I have also had poetry published in our local literary magazine Bookends.

Do you do anything in addition to writing?: I plan to take up voice acting lessons within the next year and I'd like to an extra on a movie adaptation one day.

Where can people connect with you?

How to connect with me? Let me show you the ways.

Blog (follow buttons on right sidebar), Author Facebook Page, Goodreads, Twitter, Google+Pinterest.

Otherwise just look on my sidebar. All my links are displayed and easy to use.

Is there anything else you'd like us to know.

You can check out more about my writing on The Sacrifice Series and Works in Progress pages.

I have plans to launch a new genre called AYA. Read here for more info.

I participate in the Big Dreams Bloghop where once a month participants discuss their progress on a chosen goal.

On Thursdays I have a topic Getting Personal where I post about something happening in my life.

I enjoy blogging and visiting other bloggers in turn. Also participating in cover reveals, blitz and any other forum that helps authors promote their work. I also do guest posts, book reviews and a few posts about movies I've seen. Plus I'm a Pinterest and stock photo stalking addict. I mean who isn't right?

I am from Jamaica, a proud christian and big time book lover. Let's be friends and I hope to see more of you at Queendsheena and anywhere else we can meet and chat.

  6. AYA sounds great! There's a really fantastic series out by James A Owen that could fall into this category. The books are shelved in YA, but the main characters are adults. Interesting. And like you, when I was a kid, I never really cared how old the characters in books were. As long as the story grabbed me, I read it! Best of luck with your new genre!

  11. I find it amazing that you want to take voice acting lessons. There was a time when I wanted to do the same. I even uploaded a video of me doing an English dub version of Hinata from Naruto. XD

    This is a very interesting fest! I think I may join it also! Thanks for sharing. :)

  13. Hey Sheena,

    I already followed you on most of the sites, but made sure to connect with the ones we share that I wasn't. That way, maybe I'll see you more often...my blog visiting leaves a bit to be desired.
