The Who’s Who of My Bucket List: Author Style

I’m sure that any of you have always had a mental list of people you want to meet. Although there are other people on my list, being a blogger and wanna-be author, I have a list of authors I want to meet. Click on their photos to go to their websites.

Five Dream Books

I think I’ve mentioned my book, story, novel, (I’m undecided on what to call a longer fiction story that may turn into a series when it’s still in the editing process, oh well) multiple times before. Ironically, the unlabeled document of words that I’m working on went unmentioned here. That is likely because I wrote…

Thanks, Sickness, and Words

I woke up feeling sick, and worn out. Then, my cat made it worse by making me feel crazy. Sir Pounce a Lot decided to meow me awake, then hide so that I couldn’t find the source. Through the sick blur I honestly thought I was dreaming, because when did we get a cat. It…

I Love Books!

Yesterday, I went to my book club at the local Barnes&Noble. After quite a few hours of discussion, I got two books; “Time Riders” by Alex Scarrow and “Assassin’s Creed: Revelations” by Oliver Bowden. Then later I got “Cinder” by Marissa Meyer. Since I downloaded that onto the nook app on my iPod, I’ve been…

My Stories in Noun Descriptions

I wrote the following blog post a couple of months ago for my online writing class. Since then, I have worked harder on the first book mentioned and might be looking at self publishing companies soon. Who knows, maybe by this time next year I’ll be posting a link to the book? Fingers crossed! 🙂…

Thanks! 363!

Thank you, loyal readers, for following/ reading my random posts. I have gotten 363 total views, and since that is such a cool number (-3+6=3 🙂 Or at least that’s how I saw it.) I’ve decided to thank you now rather than when it hits the a-typical 1,000 views. I also wanted to forewarn you…

7.2 Peeps- Scott Westerfeld

Peeps are parasite positive with a disease similar to vampirism. This book is unlike any Vampire book that I have read. Cal is a carrier for the disease and learns about the disease from Dr. Rat. These diseases are described in the even numbered chapters, so I suggest that if you have a queasy stomach,…

Hatchet by Gary Paulsen

At first I had difficulty reading Hatchet. The sentences were short. The mentality was different. I put down the book, leaving it there for a full week, after reading the first chapter. I couldn’t see why it is a Newberry Honor Book until I dove deeper into the book. The beginning of the book gives…
