Book Review: Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsin

Optimists Die First normally wouldn’t be the type of book I’d pick up. I’m usually drawn to something with more action or something that has fantastical aspects to the world and story. This year I’m branching out into some new territory and I lucked out with this one. Optimists Die First is written by Susin…

Book Review: Dividing Eden by Joelle Charbonneau

I’d like to say that I did research into what book I wanted to start 2018 reading and delved into books that were relevant or popular, but Dividing Eden was an impulse read.

#amediting

I am officially back in the editing chair! Having taken a few weeks away to write a few smaller things or just take a mental break, I have returned to take a final edit to my manuscript before I ship it off to begin queries.  This will take a good bit of time still, but…

I’ve Got a New Story…

I had been spending the past week or two looking into different writing contests. My book is still out to beta readers and I’m trying to keep up writing.  I figured a few smaller engagements in short stories may give me different things to pour myself into and maybe win some stuff along the way. …
