Book Release: Infinite Potential by Barbara Garren

Book Release:  Infinite Potential by Barbara Garren

I'm excited to be part of the book release blitz for Infinite Potential by Barbara Garren.  I haven't read the book yet, but the back cover blurb sounds enticing: Kelsi always knows when bad things are coming, but even she never thought she’d lose her husband at only twenty-three. Since he died, she’s been living her worst nightmare. Her nights are filled with dreams of a Dark Haired Man, but her days are full of guilt, because the Man fills her with longing and confusion, promising to give her all she needs, all she wants, all she feared she’d never have again. If only the dreams...

Books I’m Devouring – One & Only by Viv Daniels

Books I’m Devouring – One & Only by Viv Daniels

This is the second installment of Books I'm Devouring, and you can tell how fast I'm eating up these books just by the frequency of these posts.  Also, just to give you the background for these posts, I'm only writing about books I like.  I'm not going to give a lousy book review for something I hated, at least not in this venue.  As an author, I understand how much blood and sweat goes into writing, editing, and publishing a book.  So personally, I don't like to give bad reviews.  If I don't like a book, I'll just keep quiet about it.  If I do like a book, I'll broadcast it to the world.

Books I’m Devouring – CINDER by Marissa Meyer

Books I’m Devouring – CINDER by Marissa Meyer

I contemplated calling this new category of my blog, "Books I'm Eating", but I thought "Devouring" sounded more accurate. My husband says when I'm reading a book, it's like I'm hungrily eating every page, hardly looking up.  It's true.  Stories are like my sustenance, and I do devour books, finishing them in mere hours or days.  Thus, I thought I'd start a new category for my blog, featuring reviews of novels I've enjoyed. I just finished reading a Young Adult Sci-Fi Dystopian called CINDER by Marissa Meyer.  I was first introduced to the book by one of Marissa's agents, whom I met at a Society...

ELECTED is in the galley phase!

ELECTED is into the galley phase, which means that the publisher has put it in the format required by major distributors.  It now looks like a real book with a table of contents, cool font for the start of each chapter, etc.  I am combing it over, looking for any last, small changes (like commas, words that got smushed together incorrectly in the switch from MS Word to the new galley software, etc.) I'm almost finished editing the galley, and thank goodness I've looked at it.  There were definitely things to catch.  People are very critical of errors in books.  When you're reading and you see an error,...
