Author Radar: Amanda Gernentz Hanson

I don’t know about you, but May was an ABSOLUTE whirlwind for me! And to be honest, I’m not sure that June is going to slow down much at all. But, if you know me, you’ll know that as much as I may whine about it, being busy is generally how I roll. Continue reading

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!

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

November #RdgWl

November is NaNoWriMo and it’s got me thinking about my current WIPs.

I’m planning work on my sequel to Alice in Wanderland, but I also have a SciFi retelling that I’m playing around with too.

So far though, writing SciFi is HARD. I mean, I love Science Fiction movies and I am all about the genre, but  HOLY MOLY, zombies are much easier for me to work with. HOWEVER Peter’s story must be told. So I must research. My November #RDGWL?

Science Fiction, baby.

October Reads

Sometimes in the busyness of all my ‘writerly’ duties, I forget the most basic rule.
If you want to be a good writer, you also need to be a good reader.  Consider it research. I’ll be honest, I’ve been a bad reader lately, but this month, I told myself I was going to pick up my ‘studies’ again.  And I’m so glad I did.

It’s funny how you can go for a while without doing something and not realize how much you missed it until you start back up again. Now, I don’t want you to think that I haven’t been reading ANYTHING, but between school, writing, building an author platform, and life in general, I haven’t really been reading much along the lines of quality literature. So this month I made a conscious effort to pick out and finish a few good books. Here’s what I found:
