{Guest Post} From Hel, With Love by Blue Remy

Welcome to my stop on the From Hel with Love blog tour Today I have a guest post about how Blue Remy keeps her writing different. I think this is really interesting, I hope you enjoy it. Let me know what you think in the comments below How Do I Keep My Writing Different This is a difficult topic for me. My writing definitely has a style all its own. I’ve been told it’s very gritty and blunt, but tends to flow just right, keeping the reader entranced. I blushed. I honestly try and write the way I talk.

I really enjoyed this series. If you want to see my full thoughts on the books, you can check out my review HERE Joclyn Despain has been marred by a brand on her skin. She doesn’t know why the mark appeared on her neck, but she doesn’t want anyone to see it, including her best friend Ryland, who knows everything else about her. The scar is the reason she hides herself behind baggy clothes, and won’t let the idea of kissing Ryland enter her mind, no matter how much she wants to. The scar is the reason she is being hunted.
