Armchair Interview With – Linda Broday

  Armchair Interview With – Linda Broday   About Linda ( Connect With Her: Website /  Facebook / Twitter ) Though I now reside in the Texas Panhandle, I grew up in a small town in New Mexico. From an early age, I was lucky enough to discover wealth didn’t exactly pertain to money. Though my parents could barely afford the necessities, they managed to instill deep rooted values and a thirst for books.

Better Late Than Never

Screen Shot 2015-05-19 at 10.40.47 AM

  Once upon a time, a friend of mine asked a very silly question.  “Misty, why do you read so many young adult novels?” Judging by the quirk of her eyebrow (in response to my obviously befuddled facial expression) she did not think this question was quite so silly.

She wanted an example; a specific characteristic from YA literature that kept me […]

Struggle For Self + Giveaway!

Screen Shot 2015-05-12 at 10.16.06 AM

  My daughter (whom, for those of you that don’t know, is 6 and in the first grade) has been studying past Presidents for the last 3 weeks. A few days ago, ecstatic with her new found (shockingly vast) knowledge on the topic she decided to teach ME all that she had learned. I (admittedly/shamefully) was only half listening, UNTIL I heard the word “fool.” Having never heard the word from her before (and being a little concerned that I had missed the context for this word and why it was used) I asked her to repeat herself. After a […]

The Secret Keeper – Cover Reveal

SecretKeeperFrontCover

  The Secret Keeper by Angela Carling Publication Date: TBD   About Angela My love of writing started when I was old enough to start creating stories in my head, which was young enough that I can’t remember the first time.  It was my cure for boredom. At night, I would lie in bed for what seemed like hours crafting elaborate story lines and characters in my mind. I was called imaginative, among other things, by my teachers and parents. As I got older, I began to write down my ideas on scraps of paper here and notebooks there. In […]

The Truth Will Set You Free

Portrait of the young woman blindfold

   We’ve all heard it: “Never judge a book by its cover!” Chances are, you’ve even spouted it off to some judgmental “outsider” (and by outsider I obviously mean “non-reader”) in a misplaced moment of literary rage. But…(and here is where shit is about to get real – pardon the language) Do you actually BELIEVE what you are saying? For those of you that answered yes, YOU LIE! (It’s ok, I promise not to tell anyone.) The ideal behind the English idiom (which as far as I can tell was first muttered by Mr. Tulliver in George Eliot’s The Mill […]
