  1. The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab Is a life worth living if it is spent alone? As we are faced with the growing truth that we are mortal I am sure at one time or another we have all fantasized about what we could do with time without end. I have often pondered what I would be willing to give up for even an extra fifty years of life on earth. In her most recent novel V.E. Schwab gives us the opportunity to dance through time as we follow young Addie LaRue. She exchanged her soul for a life without end, but it didn’t come without a price. As Friedri

  3. The January prompts are finally up and running over on the writers blog. I am woefully late, but also very excited about this month. We had a fun idea to hope help motivate everyone to participate. I am creating a DM Writers Sticker/Vinyl. Everyone who wants a shot to win it can submit their entries in all the typical ways. We will pick one winner and I will send them the Sticker/Vinyl for free. We may do the more than once, but we just thought it would be a fun incentive. Since I was a few days late getting us going get the prompts submitted by Feb. 6th.

  5. The Child of Chaos by Glen Dahlgren In mother nature there is balance. For every dark night there is the light of day; for every devastating fire there is new life. In a world that is created by order, there will be a need for chaos to create harmony. In the young adult fantasy fiction world, there is a tendency by authors to follow a familiar path. As my fellow lovers of the fantasy and science fiction genre know, many authors can easily fall victim to this trap (Not that it means we love them any less!). Glen Dahlgren’s debut novel The Child of Chaos takes a new approach to the g

  7. Yay!!! That is excellent!! I could not agree more with the election distraction and fatigue. I am also an educator in a state and county where Covid is now in uncontrolled spread, so to say I have been distracted is an understatement. I did finish both of my reviews for the month and spent some time with the new YA fiction I was toying around with. This month I have just been trying to focus on getting some words on a page every single day no matter what.
  8. How is it going for everyone? I didn't take the plunge this year. I am a bit sad about it, but I have still been writing.
  9. It was a truly unique book, you will not be disappointed.
  10. Master of Poisons by Andrea Hairston The world we are living in is rife with crisis and bubbling with change. This novel landed in my lap at the perfect time. As I read, I drew many parallels to our unpredictable lives in 2020. The standalone novel, Master of Poisons written by Andrea Hairston is a richly diverse epic fantasy saga. The story is filled with familiar fantasy accoutrement that is woven together with African influences. The book raised many poignant questions for me that are resonant with our lives today. What are you willing to give up in order to change the future?

  12. My tentative plan is to work on a YA fiction idea. I usually try to work on my fantasy novel during NaNo, but since I usually just end up stressing myself out I think I am going to shelve that for the month. I am going to give myself some space from it and try something a little different. I am wrapping up my two reviews before the weekend and plan to spend Halloween hashing out my plans. My main goal is to just FINISH!
  13. Yes!! This is so exciting. Loving the enthusiasm! Welcome aboard.
  14. I am really not sure how we are back around to NaNo again!! I did not accomplish my goals last year and have been debating if I even want to make the attempt in 2020. Who knows...maybe this insane year is the year I make it happen?!?! I will mull it over this week while I finish up my book reviews (that are woefully overdue) 😛
  15. The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi I have reached an important conclusion concerning my identity as a reader. I am officially a science fiction fan. I can go on to add a willing and excited reader of science fiction. I am new enough to the genre to know I still have a lot to explore, but my first few forays in the world of science fiction have been a triumph. The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi is no exception. In fact, since finishing this book I have already gone on to begin book two. In my mind that is the highest compliment I can give to an author; to immediately read more o
