Why I’m Awkward

Why I’m Awkward

I was trolling our lovely Carmcats street team this weekend, and I realized awkward solidarity exists guys. I am not the only insanely awkward person in this world! Yipee!   I mean really. This is me when I enter a party or a room full of crowded people. Or let’s not forget the last introduction to a cute boy (face palm) My ability to provide lots of corny math jokes and embarrass myself (oops!) Walking down the middle of the street reading, I’m going to run into at least one person In a room full of people I don’t know?… Read more »

Wonderfully Wicked Blog Tour

Wonderfully Wicked Blog Tour

Thank you so much for having me on Bibliolatry Me! (Freakin’ love the word bibliolatry…tried to say it three times fast. Fail.) Thank you! I can’t do it either don’t worry So tell us what was the most exciting thing about your first novel being published? Everything! From the moment Georgia McBride of Swoon Romance snapped it up, to the first time I saw the cover, to the day I could actually say I’m a real-live published author, everything has been surreal. It’s a dream come true. Your About Me says, “no cookies, sorry, but there are other treats!” (I want… Read more »

#Discussion: POV Changes

#Discussion: POV Changes

Recently, I was asked by an aspiring author, “Is changing points of view (character wise) okay? Is it okay to do it in the middle of a chapter or only at chapter breaks?” Naturally I have my opinions, but I also asked Facebook’s opinion. The general consensus was a little different from my personal preference. For me, character POV changes should only occur at chapter or scene breaks unless absolutely necessary. If you change in the middle of a scene, won’t it confuse your readers? My favorite method of POV changes is at chapter breaks when it is provided who… Read more »

Quietness Around Here

Hello everyone! As you may have noticed, I’ve been pretty quiet here and on social media. Why? School has begun in an ernest. I am taking more credit hours than I am accustomed to as well as lots of extra curricular activities. Unfortunately that leaves little reading or blogging time! whah But I am trying to get some stuff done! Just bear with me while I adjust to this semester. Thanks everyone!

The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe

The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe

I really loved this book despite the fact I thought it was going to be like every other virus/ quarantine novel I’d read. What really helped me enjoy it was the way it was written, as a letter to a friend the entire way through, recounting what happened AS it happened. Kaelyn’s daily writing to her friend Leo begins as any normal 15 year old girl would be writing to her friend who has gone to live somewhere else, but soon turns to daily accounts of what’s happening on the island she lives on as things start to take a turn… Read more »

Book Blogging Bucket List

1. Go to a large conference like BEA or RT I’ve always wanted to do this. Not necessarily for the books (though that is a plus!), but for the experiences. I want to meet new people who like the things I do, see new places, and try new things! 2. Meet J.R. Ward She is quite possibly the only author that I still pre-order as soon as I hear about a new book. I know people have had their ups and downs with this series, but I am a die hard fan (even through Lover Enshrined!) and anticipate remaining one…. Read more »
