Author Toolbox: The Wonders of World Building

Since Alice has made her debut in the world, I have learned many things. Some lessons have not been the best experiences of my life (case in point: #CSLewisCarroll), but others have been incredibly exciting.

One such lesson was the discovery that I might just have a knack for world building. I found out when my dear friend Rebecca Cahill asked me to write a guest post for her blog, The Page Unbound.  I was more than happy to oblige, until she told me the topic she’d like me to write about:  World Building.

Antiartists by Ralph Pullins

I don’t like to DNF books. I don’t know what it is, but there is something deep inside my soul that aches at the idea of leaving a book started unfinished. In fact, in my long relationship with books there are less than a handful that I can even claim as DNF’s.

This book justifies every single reason for that decision.

2017 SerendipiTeaTour: Amanda Hanson

Hello lovelies!

So, as you may or may not know, I was recently asked to join the ranks of the authors being featured in the 2017 #SerendipiTea Tour, a book blog tour featuring sixteen debuting authors from 2017! Since that’s exactly Alice’s cup of tea (Mad Tea Party, anyone?), I was super stoked!

Even MORE recently, I was given the opportunity to HOST one of stops on the tour, and when I heard who the author was, I literally jumped at the chance. Not only is she an incredible writer, she also happens to be one of the COOLEST people I know!

Who is this femme fatale? None other than my very own Pen Name bestie, Miss Amanda Gernentz Hanson!

Where There’s A Whim, There’s A Way

It’s taken me a couple dozen  years, but I have recently learned something about myself that I find rather interesting. It’s something that I’ve never really paid attention to, but the course of my life over the past year has completely validated.

Here it is: Continue reading Where There’s A Whim, There’s A Way

Paper Wishes by Spencer Hoshino

Hello fellow book lovers! It’s time for another FaveReview, and this time, I’m diving into the world of self-publishing!

Now, I’ll be honest, I don’t usually grab for self-published books too often because I’ve read way too many that have left a bad taste in my mouth. More often than not, it isn’t because of the storyline, but rather a case where the book went ‘live’ before it was ready.

Paper Wishes is NOT one of those books.  Continue reading Paper Wishes by Spencer Hoshino

Anvil Soul by David O’Sullivan

It’s a new year and that means new and exciting challenges to undertake. This year, one of the things I want to add to my skill set is writing book reviews.

I mean, I love books and I love helping people find books that they will love too, so it seems a natural progression, right?

I thought so.
