Here’s another update! The sixth one, to be exact. I just started a new job at a pet store so that’s taking up a lot of my time and I am also still working hard on both my YouTube channel, and my book. But a huge thing that happened recently in my life is my pet Hammie, died. When I feel like I’m ready I will make a whole tribute blog post just in her memory, like I did for my other animals. Of course she was the closest one to me though, so it’s been tough. Some days are easier than others and today was a pretty rough one. Good news though, I ordered a skinny pig and I am oh so excited to meet her. I love her already! But no one can ever replace my Hammie. Stay tuned within the next week for more blogs. — Victoria Hecnar xoxo

Once again, I find myself writing an update explaining my absence. Well, I’ve been extremely busy lately. I’ve been working on my novel a lot and its query letter. (Which I am so happy about by the way. I love my book so much, I just want it to be out in stores already!) Also been working on my new YouTube channel, which I am excited about. So don’t fret. There will be plenty more blogs coming soon, probably within the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, check out my YouTube channel. More blogs to come soon. Thanks everyone. — Victoria xx
Wow . . . can you believe it?! Neither can I! I started this blog in February 2014, and here we are, December 2014! Thank you to all of my readers, whether you’re a reader of my book, blog, or both! Writing blogs on my website these past few months have been so fun, and I know that I’m going to continue to be a blogger (and hopefully vlogger eventually!) for many years to come! So once again, thanks so much for everyone’s support. It means the world to me! I love you guys! xoxo

Mackenzie High Is Now Five Dollars Cheaper
Hello ladies and gentlemen! Unfortunately due to its size and weight, Mackenzie High is pretty expensive to buy on the internet. The lowest I was allowed to go was $33, but now I was able to take off $5! Mackenzie High is now available for $28, for now and for evermore. (Until it hits stores! Then it’ll be less than $20!) There’s also always coupon codes you can use at the store’s website. To take advantage of this sweet offer, come by either of these sites to purchase my novel.

Thanks, everybody. Enjoy! And only one more week until Halloween . . . Exciting!
Facebook Status: 2018
Facebook: Most of us have it. On my personal profile, I hardly post anything at all. But the other day I was thinking . . . in the future, what will my life be like? What will my Facebook statuses say? Putting aside relationships, family, and hobbies, I decided on creating several statuses in which may appear in 2018/2019 relating to my career. This was just a fun blog I decided on doing. Enjoy!
A girl can dream, right? 😉
A Quick Look At: Mackenzie High
So I’m pretty excited because (I’m going to call it a sneak peek) of Mackenzie High is now out. I call it that because it isn’t officially published yet, and there’s still some work left to do on it and I am still looking for a permanent publisher. But for the meantime, we have the sneak peek and I’m pretty happy with the way it all turned out. I also want to thank those who have purchased a copy of Mackenzie High and have provided me with some feedback. Everyone seems very engrossed with it and have both deep love and hatred for the characters, which is exactly how I wanted it to be. And—as mentioned before—this is only the beginning. There’s lots more to be done before Mackenzie High is released, but the journey has been awesome so far!
Here’s a look at:
The front cover . . .
The back cover . . .
The spine . . .
And, last but not least, a picture of the inside of the book . . .
I’ve been giving away several copies of books to my friends and family, but you can always check out my store if you click here. Soon there will be Mackenzie High merchandise available. A big thanks to everyone once more!

Mackenzie High = Complete
Hey, everyone! It feels so great to be able to say this; Mackenzie High is officially complete! This is not the last revision, nor is this the last edition of the book. I know I still have a long way to go before Mackenzie High makes it big, but for now, this is certainly a start! This is the third time I have written a book. The first one in 2009, Five Hearts, was discarded, and rewritten as Mackenzie High in 2012, now the latest edition of Mackenzie High was written in 2014. I call Mackenzie High my first novel, though, as the characters from Five Hearts are basically the same.
Most of my novels took me only two months to write, but for this edition, I wrote for several months to make sure it’s perfect. Or, as close to perfect as it can be for now. I never have any spelling mistakes, but sometimes my grammar goes funky. And not the type like “your” or “you’re”, but sometimes I misuse words and therefore the sentence does not run as smoothly. For example, I wrote “coach” instead of “couch” and “make” instead of “made.” Yikes . . . I permitted myself to have 5 mistakes in this copy. If I find anymore then five, I swear, I’m going ape-shit on someone. There will always be fixes and new editions coming out, so the mistakes will be corrected. [I really hope it’s less than 5 this time.]
I’ve created a lot of the characters when I was eight years old; that was eight years ago. And I wrote Five Hearts when I was only twelve. So this book and its characters were there for me when I was growing up. They’ve become such an important part of my life, that I don’t know what I’d do without them.
♥I LOVE MACKENZIE HIGH!♥
. . . and hopefully you will, too!
Mackenzie High is 665 pages at the moment. It’s such an amazing story with a really deep message, and I can’t wait to share it with all of you. I am so excited for my friends and family to read it. I’m giving away several copies to them! To order your own copy, you can either search “Victoria Hecnar” on Amazon or you can scroll to the top of my website, and click the “Store” button. Or, for direct access, click here.
Unfortunately, my publishers said based on the weight and material of the book, the book price had to be $55.00. But I am giving all of you a 40% off discount, dropping down the book to only $33.00!
Mackenzie High means the world to me. In the future, I hope for it to be my career. Seriously, how cool does a world book tour sound? Answer: Very! Right now I’m just blessed to be given an opportunity to write my heart out, and I am also very thankful for being blessed with a talent of having a wild imagination, strong writing, and fast typewriting skills (LOL). Thank you so much to everyone reading this right now. Enjoy!NOTE: MACKENZIE HIGH IS RATED 14+ FOR HEAVY LANGUAGE, VIOLENCE, DRUG/ALCOHOL RELATED CHAPTERS, SEXUAL CONTENT & PROFANITIES. Also note: there are no actual sex scenes in my book. Just wanted to clear that up.
Mackenzie High Update
Mackenzie High to be published by the end of fall 2014 hopefully, or early 2015. Updates to follow.
My Name Is Victoria
Hey! My name is Victoria Hecnar. I wanted to thank everyone for visiting my new official website. I will be using my blog, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube to inform my friends and fans on latest things happening with me and my novels, acting, and public speaking events.
This website is mostly to promote my work. I am a self-published author, whose lifelong dream is to become a worldwide best selling author. I have been writing for years. My first novel was published in 2009, and my second was published in 2012. I am currently looking for a publisher to give my books a home!
Unfortunately, “Five Hearts” is no longer available for publication.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME:
I love writing, acting, and motivational speaking. I am a coffee lover. Tim Hortons and Starbucks are my life. Woo. Also enjoy spending time with two really important people in my life, my boyfriend and my best friend. Huge animal lover; my room is full with rodents, amphibians and fish. ♥ my hamster Hammie, fish Engelbert, dog Belle, & more. Obsessed with shopping. And fashion. And things that smell nice. And fast food . . . a little too much. Yummy. Working out, going to the beach, going on vacation. Being on my laptop, cell phone, iPod, etc. That sums it up.
The three things that my work focuses on are:
- Being an author.
- Being a motivational speaker.
- Being an actress.
For more information, you can look around my website OR request a business card. I’m excited to begin blogging!
