Sony Readers Book Club and Daughter of Smoke and Bone Review

My fellow readers and writers, I’m thrilled to bring you some exciting news: I am officially a VIP member of the Sony Readers Book Club! A few weeks ago, Sony announced that it was starting a new book club and was looking for twenty-five VIP members to participate in the program. As a book club member, Sony asked that we participate in four amazing book club discussions/chats with authors Laini Taylor (Daughter of Smoke and Bone), Barbara Kingsolver (Flight Behavior), Michael Connelly (The Black Box), and Molly Ringwald (When It Happens to You). As you all know, I love eBooks and my Sony Reader and always have, so I thought I’d apply even though I thought winning was a long shot. Much to my surprise, I received an e-mail a few days later that Continue reading

Magic Mondays: Changes, Spring Cleaning, and Upcoming Events

Wow, what a spring. With everything that’s been going on recently, it’s hard to believe that it’s been two months since my last post.

Magic Monday Coming Events

Well, this will be my last normal Magic Monday post for a while. With the craze and excitement of NaNoWriMo upon us, I’ll be focusing all my writing efforts on getting my new project done. But don’t worry! I won’t leave you alone to stare at an empty blog for a month. No, no. I’m excited to share that beginning next Monday, October 31st, I’ll be partnering with the Indie Book Collective to bring you a special NaNoWriMo blog series for the month of November. I’ll kick off the series on Halloween with a post of my own, and after that, you’ll get to meet several other NaNoWriMo authors who have generously volunteered to guest blog for us. These bloggers will share their NaNoWriMo success stories with you each week, and I really think you’ll love them. Continue reading

Book Reviews and Upcoming Events

Since I’m between books at the moment (I’ll have a new review for you next week, I promise!), I thought I’d take a few minutes and let you know about some upcoming events between now and the end of the year. The year 2011 seems to have gone faster for me than I ever thought possible, and now we’re here again, staring the end of the year and the upcoming holiday season in the face. (Didn’t I just put the Christmas decorations back in the attic?) Continue reading

Coming Soon …

I’m so excited to announce that tomorrow, I’ll be featured in an author interview on the fabulous Morgen Bailey’s website. You can visit her website here ( and learn more about her and also read some of the fantastic author interview’s she’s done.

Today’s post isĀ  short because I’m going to spend some quality time with Merrick and Lorena. I’ll be posting an interview with Lorena soon and hopefully will be able to post an excerpt from the book in a few weeks too. Happy writing!
