Deep End Of The Sea - Front Cover


What if all the legends you’ve learned were wrong?

Brutally attacked by one god and unfairly cursed by another she faithfully served, Medusa has spent the last two thousand years living out her punishment on an enchanted isle in the Aegean Sea. A far cry from the monster legends depict, she’s spent her time educating herself, gardening, and desperately trying to frighten away adventure seekers who occasionally end up, much to her dismay, as statues when they manage to catch her off guard. As time marches on without her, Medusa wishes for nothing more than to be given a second chance at a life stolen away at far too young an age.

But then comes a day when Hermes, one of the few friends she still has and the only deity she trusts, petitions the rest of the gods and goddesses to reverse the curse. Thus begins a journey toward healing and redemption, of reclaiming a life after tragedy, and of just how powerful friendship and love can be—because sometimes, you have to sink in the deep end of the sea before you can rise back up again.

Release Day Book Blitz: Finding Joy by Jenni Moen + GIVEAWAY

Remembering Joy
Release Date: 12/13/13
Book Summary from Goodreads:
Love is patient. 
It can happen when you least expect it, where you least expect it, with whom you least expect it.
Love is kind.
But love may not grow out of kindness. It can happen with the person who hates you most because love knows no bounds. 
And it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love doesn’t hold a grudge.

Love forgives.

Love forgets.


But when the healing of your heart 


breaks the hearts of the ones you love …


it may seem impossible to



Find joy.

About the Author
Jenni Moen lives in Oklahoma with her husband and three crazy, exuberant kids that have the potential to burn the house down at any moment. 
When she’s not chauffeuring kids around town, performing her mom duties as a short order cook and maid, or vacuuming for her fastidious husband, she hammers away at her keyboard at her big girl job as a patent attorney. While vodka and exercise have provided some relief from the daily grind, it is reading … and now writing … that are her true escapes.

Magic Mondays: New Year, New Priorities

Happy New  Year!

I know I’m a week late, but this is my first post in 2012, so it still counts, right? The new year always brings new possibilities and resolutions, and over the last month or so, I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to accomplish this year. How about you? What are your resolutions? For me, I made some of the normal ones you hear every year: getting into shape, cooking at home more often, and so on, but I wanted more out of my resolutions than that. As I thought about what I’d accomplished in 2011 and what I still wanted to do, I realized there was quite a bit that I was proud of. Continue reading

NaNoWriMo Wrap-Up and Thank Goodness It’s Over!

All month, I have been trying to decide exactly what to say to you to wrap up the writing adventure we’ve had during NaNoWriMo. But the truth is, I’m speechless. I always am at the end of November when I look back and realize the enormity of the literary ride we’ve just been on. Other NaNoWriMo veterans will tell you that you need to be prepared for anything during the month of November—and they are completely right. World catastrophes happen, children accidentally delete the last 5,000 words of your manuscript, or—as in my case—your computer breaks the week before Thanksgiving and you have to find another way to finish your novel.

Book Review: Flidderbugs by Jonathan Gould

Life hasn’t always been easy for Kriffle the Flidderbug. For as long as Kriffle can remember, the Quadrigon tribe has always had control of Krephiloff Tree’s Shears, which means that the Triplifers, Kriffle’s own tribe, has had to deal with an overgrowth of leaves on his side of the tree. Once Kriffle has been nominated to become the Triplifers’ new leader and take over from his father, he realizes the ’bugs have even bigger problems. Continue reading

Book Review: Doodling by Jonathan Gould

When Neville Lansdowne falls off the world, it isn’t the end of his adventures. In fact, it’s only the beginning. The world has begun moving too quickly for Neville’s tastes, so he decides to fall off—or, rather, “let go” of it—and start over. Once Neville leaves the world, he finds himself in an asteroid field and quickly discovers that he’s not alone. Others have also let go of the world and established new colonies for themselves on the asteroids. The only downfall is that each new person Neville meets seems to be completely insane.

As Neville interacts with his new neighbors and tries to find a place to call home, he soon discovers that the asteroid belt has troubles of its own. Because the world is spinning so fast, it will soon fly off its orbit, destroying any asteroid in its path. The only solution is for Neville to gather his new friends and stop the world before it obliterates the asteroid belt.

It’s easy to find metaphors between the groups Neville meets and real-life people in today’s society. Gould’s Lewis Carroll-like writing style presents the asteroid dwellers in a humorous light that will appeal to readers of all ages. I found myself cheering on Neville and his team, and would recommend Doodling to anyone who enjoys a fun read.

Jonathan Gould has been writing for fifteen years and has authored two children’s books that were released in Australia. Doodling is his first eBook and is currently available through Amazon:… and Smashwords:… From now until the end of April, you can purchase Doodling on both sites for $0.99. You can check out his blog at or follow him on Twitter.
