While It Lasts…

I have something very important to tell you. *drops voice to a whisper* There are only 2 1/2 days left of Read-to-Win. Better slide into home plate and post those reviews! And even if you won’t make it in time to enter the giveaway (though my book is remarkably short); it’s still worth it to get … More While It Lasts…

Library Hopefuls

Apparently I don’t have enough books pining away for me to read them. I have finished four books in the past four days, but that’s never enough. No. I had to go to the library. It was one of those “short trips” Mom declares. Just long enough for her to grab a stack of movies to help us survive this … More Library Hopefuls

Can giving content advisories and writing positive reviews go together? For the past few years, I’ve included a lengthy content … More Positively Negative

Virtual Avalanche

You know you’ve been spending too much time on Goodreads… Fortunately mine’s just a digital shelf so I don’t have to worry about an avalanche. 😉 What are you looking forward to reading next?

Inventing Words

Today I’ve been working on my story some more and following in the footsteps of William Shakespeare (except for the immoral characters and mix-ups) by inventing my own words. So far I’ve irritated spell check with two words–lunchers and snungry. Snungry, you say? Here’s a handy definition. Snun.gry adjective a state of hunger only satisfied by a … More Inventing Words
