Unless you have been living under a rock (not that I would blame you) you have noticed I have been absent. With the exception of a Tuesday Newbies post here or there I'm like smoke in the wind. In and out before you even realize it. Most of you, after 7 years of being loyal Kindle-ites (thanks for that) understand that it happens AND live safely under the assumption that I will (eventually) return. However, I have gained roughly 500 new followers in the last month (despite my absence) and after a pretty *cough* forward *cough* email yesterday I realized that isn't necessarily the case for ev...

Sage Words of Advice

Screen Shot 2014-09-04 at 9.58.45 AM

  I have a ton of favorite authors. I know that might sound ludicrous to you (because how can a person have more than one favorite?) but nevertheless it’s true. The majority of authors gracing my “favorites list” are there for one (and only one) reason…they know how to entertain me. They make me laugh. They make me cry. They expand my ability to imagine. Katie Kacvinsky is NOT on the list for any of those reasons. Because, while she CAN make me laugh, or cry, or imagine, it’s her ability to INSPIRE that keeps me coming back. Three years […]

For The Love of Free Will + Giveaway!

Cover - The Legacy

   I’ve discovered (over the last 6 years) that writing reviews for books I love is a much harder task than writing a review for a book I hate. Writing a comprehensive review for a book I love? Even harder. Sometimes (despite my predisposition for penning incredibly lengthy reviews) I want nothing more than to write just once sentence. No explaining why I thought it fit the bill, no over-analyzation of the plot, no…the characters are great because. Sometime I just want to write: “This book is superb…buy it!” And call it a day. This is one of those times. […]

When All The Pieces Come Together + Giveaway!

  I posted an article on my Facebook page the other day titled “10 Things That Happen When You Can’t Put A Good Book Down.” The article listed things such as: being late to work, becoming a recluse, neglecting housework and loved ones, all very spot on symptoms of getting wrapped up in something awesome. But it was number one that I quite literally laugh out loud at. Number one was… Losing track of time. Why was it so funny? I’m so glad you asked.  See, Thursday morning (the day before I posted that article) I woke up bored. Honestly, […]

Rise & Decline – A Guest Post by Michael Waller

Michael Waller (The Wizards Gift)

  The Rise of Genre and the Decline of Story By Michael Waller   When I was young I prowled the aisles of my local library unhindered by the fear of the unknowns of literature or the restrictions of genre. There were only two sections, fiction and non-fiction. Admittedly there were numerous subdivisions in the non-fiction side, but in fiction the shelves started at A and worked their inexorable way to Z. I was like a literate cow grazing a lush field and trying everything green in sight, grass, daisies, dandelions, all different, but all succulent. Now however, I have […]

A Magical Deception + Giveaway!

20821047

  I don’t know about you, but I do a LOT of reading in coffee houses. I do this with the intention of being less distracted. This might not makes sense to you, but…if I’m at home I can find roughly a million other things to do. When I’m curled up on a couch, headphones on and not in the vicinity of my washer and dryer, I accomplish more. All I worry about there is how full my coffee cup is and whether or not my facial expressions are giving away my thoughts on the book in my hands. Every […]
