TTT: Women I’m Grateful For

This is going to be a bit different this week, and not in the why are we talking about movies on a book blog again way. That Artsy Reader Girl gave us a Thanksgiving freebie this week with the prompt to list things we’re grateful for, and while I could have done characters or books […]

A Case for New Adult

A children’s book is generally marketed for readers around the age of 5-8, though it depends on when the child starts reading.

#NaNoWriMo: Week Three

I can’t believe I’m drafting this on a Saturday, but now that my characters have been reunited, I’m hella excited about writing, and I just want all the romance.

#NaNoWriMo: Week Two

I’ve got to start this week off with a story because it’s just truly unbelievable, and I’m lucky to be able to write this right now. I have two cats, whom I’ve talked about often enough on here that I think everyone knows that. Lily is super chill about most things. She loves to be […]
