IT Happened Again and IT is Unacceptable – WRITERS READ!

Writers read. Period. Exclamation point. If you cannot find time to READ then you will never, ever be a writer. I do not know how many more times I can have this conversation before my head explodes. Many of my friends share my frustration over […]

NaNo Week 3 Check-In: Turned the Corner!

It’s NaNo Week 3 check-in time! We’ve passed the halfway point – where are you at? I’m not where I’d like to be but man, I’m making progress. Not quite halfway but getting there fast. And, my peak writing days are this week! There is […]

Selah Janel Guest Review: Baby and Me

We’re going back to manga this week with a look at a title I’ve gone back to time and again, because it’s just so cute. Baby & Me explores the life of ten-year-old Takuya. His mother has recently died and his father is working hard […]

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Caraval is almost everything I’ve heard it would be. Donatella (Tella) and Scarlett need to escape their lives and where better to run than Caraval, a magical five night experience. Part mystery, part adventure, part game, this experience is unlike anything else in their world. […]

NaNo Week 2 Check-In – How Goes It?

NaNo Week 2 is down, how have you fared so far? I admit that I’m nowhere close to where I hoped to be but I tend to be a procrastinator. My best writing days tend to be over Thanksgiving as I mentioned before. This year […]

NaNo Week 1 – Getting Off to a Good Start

Admittedly, NaNo week 1 has not gone as well as expected. That happens though. Not that I’m not writing or accomplishing plenty, I am. Unfortunately, none of my words have been for my current WIP. You see, I write for two blogs, freelance for some […]

Selah Janel Guest Review: Natsume’s Book of Friends

In choosing titles this month, I really wanted to focus on the concept of family. With Thanksgiving and the holiday season coming up, it feels like our thoughts naturally turn to those we’re connected to this time of year. I’m also going to add in […]

NaNo KickOff and National Author’s Day

NaNo KickOff and National Author’s Day

It seems appropriate that NaNo (National Novel Writing Month) would kick off on National Author’s Day, right? I think so too. There’s something about NaNoWriMo that really gets me going. I think it’s the pressure and the deadlines, both push me to produce. Some authors […]
