Hi everyone! My name is Vashti and I’m an author. My first novel The Basement is a suspense/thriller aimed at pre-teens and teens, although, many adults have read and enjoyed the book. I’ve provided a short excerpt from the book today for your enjoyment (at least I hope you enjoy it). Please let me know what you think in the comment area. Thank you!



(Short excerpt from my novel The Basement)

Beaming, she stood over the bed, gesturing for him to get up. Her smile competed with the sun shining through their fifth floor apartment window, bathing her curves with resplendent golden light.

She is so beautiful, he thought. He craved to pull her back down onto the bed and simply devour her. Instead, he watched as she giggled and disappeared into the bathroom to get ready for the day. He followed her lead and got out of bed. Wearing a big grin, he began to dress.

They were acting like honeymooners. All marriages had their good years and bad years, and they were in a good year.

    Funny I just read another blog about how hard it is to write about a kiss, this excerpt proves you don’t need kissing to do sexy – Thanks for your lovely comment on my knowledge post today

    What could be the secret of always having good years in a marriage?



    • Vashti Quiroz-Vega April 17, 2013 at 6:06 pm #

      Hello Shakti! I guess no one really knows for sure. The one thing I’ve notice that people who have been married a long time, and look happy share, is a common respect for one another. I also believe maintaining a little mystery, as hard as that may be, is important.

    Hey, your blog seems extremely interesting!!! Thanks for the follow and your book’s cover is good!! I know it’s odd to say this or to compliment on the book itself rather than the cover. But, the cover makes one wanting to read


    • Vashti Quiroz-Vega April 18, 2013 at 10:24 pm #

      Hi Jasveena! I’m so glad you find my blog interesting! It’s ok to be captivated by the book cover because that’s its function. So thank you for that too! 😀

    Wonderful blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..

    Any tips? Cheers!


    • Vashti Quiroz-Vega January 15, 2014 at 9:16 pm #

      Hello! My best advise to you is to read and write a lot. Start a blog. Definitely start with a free platform (like wordpress). That’s how I started. Like you, I was also lost (I still get lost sometimes) at first, but you get the hang of it after a while. I’m still learning as I go. I’m glad you enjoyed my blog. Good luck and happy writing! 😀
