A {Killer} Review

Some weeks you’re the groundhog, down in your den and only peeking out when there’s something of interest – or in Punxsutawney’s case, when you’re dragged unceremoniously into the light to witness your shadow and condemn the nation to more winter or not see it and fuel our hopes of Spring. Either way, your job isn’t too glamorous. That’s kind of what writing is like. You have a lot of fun when you’re in the limelight, signing books and meeting wonderful readers, but there is a lot of unglamorous Punxsutawney moments. Things like writing query letters, ripping them up cause their crap and then writing some more, all in hopes of selling your amazing book to an agent. There’s the fun of researching agents and...

Author/Editor Interview {Lisa Mangum}

In keeping with my new year resolutions, this week I’ve been studying agents. I’m asking lots of questions. Researching profiles. Following Tweets. And writing queries, all in preparation for finding the PERFECT agent for my books. I’ll keep you all posted. So far Querytracker.net has been an awesome resource. You can search for agents according to genre and make a list. There are links right there to research about specific agents too. It’s kind of fun to get to know these professionals in the industry and what they’re looking for. With this in mind, I wanted to post today’s interview with Author and Editor Lisa Mangum. This lady has so many talents. She is a great teacher, a wonderful writer, a Disney addict, and has helped...

Author Interview {Chad Morris}

So last week – should we talk about it or just let it slide? I was…shall we say – busy. But not in the fun writer dashing out thousands of words way. More like girl with five babies trying to get on the right track busy. Starting a new eating plan busy. Cutting out sugar and carbs busy. Whole30 busy. I know you understand this. Never fear! I’m back and feeling pretty good actually. This week in Vegas, we have the thrill of two MG authors swooping in for a fun book tour. NY Times Bestselling Author Brandon Mull and Chad Morris are going to be here signing and selling and generally entertaining the masses. I thought I would prep you for their arrival with a little interview with Chad. He is seriously a lot of fun and I really enjoyed his...

Author Interview {Marissa Meyer}

So last night I was feeding my ADDICTION to baby snuggling. Holding my infant son while he slept and binge reading my second book of the day. My perspective alternated between pages and words and the blissful little man in my arms with eyelashes that seemed to be growing by the minute and a pair of the most kissable cheeks ever dispensed to a baby. His weight in the crook of my arm felt fantastic, a perfect bundle of squishy warmth and wiggles. I should have been contemplating my post for today or writing up a query and some first pages for the contests I’m entering. But that’s what today is for. Last night was for reading and snuggling, and honestly, I can quit whenever I want. Today I am thrilled to share my interview with the fabulous Marissa Meyer...

Author Interview {Elana Johnson}

I just finished Elana Johnson’s latest release ELEVATED after an obsessive reading session yesterday. Beginning to end, I was surprised and delighted by how much I enjoyed this book entirely in prose. To be honest, when the format was first announced, I didn’t quite know how to wrap my head around it. A book written in poetry? Like Roses are Red, all rhyming and Dr. Seuss-y? Don’t get me wrong, I love the Seuss, but this was a YA novel with tension and … Horton doesn’t bring it!   Nevertheless, when I started reading, I was instantly hooked. The poetry of the words – not rhyming, but lyrical, rolling out wave after wave of this story that you just have to know more about. I adored the way the words were placed, the visual poetry...
