New Review: All Broke Down by Cora Carmack

My review of All Broke Down, a New Adult novel by Cora Carmack, is up at All About Romance today. As much as I enjoyed Cora Carmack’s first three books, I was totally avoiding the Rusk University series. First of all, New Adult is a very hit or miss genre for me. I like Carmack’sContinue reading “New Review: All Broke Down by Cora Carmack”

On The Brink

I officially have 2,105 words left until I win National Novel Writing Month! As I am poised on the brink of 50,000 words, I wanted to take a moment to reflect. I thought I would post more updates, but I got carried away in the writing (imagine that) and didn’t come here to post. However,Continue reading “On The Brink”

NaNoWriMo Numbers Update 1

We are currently on day 4 of National Novel Writing Month. This is my first time honestly trying NaNoWriMo so I was pretty nervous about whether I would be able to make my words for each day, since I need to do about 1,667 to finish on time if I write every day. Here’s theContinue reading “NaNoWriMo Numbers Update 1”

Book Review: Carolina Blues

My review of Carolina Blues by Virginia Kantra is up over at All About Romance What is there to say about this book? It’s good. It’s really good. It’s a great addition to an already great series. Of course, just saying that it’s good and I think you should read it doesn’t make for muchContinue reading “Book Review: Carolina Blues”

Pandora’s Box

I participated in a Pandora’s Box book discussion over at All About Romance on Sarah Morgan’s new romance Maybe This Christmas. Sarah Morgan’s Maybe This Christmas is the third in her O’Neil Brothers series. The first two (Sleigh Bells in the Snow and Suddenly Last Summer) received a B+ and an A- here at AAR.Continue reading “Pandora’s Box”

I Think I’m Not a Planner

I’ve spent the last few weeks thinking about planning my NaNoWriMo book. Please note that thinking is the key word there. I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to take 12-ish years worth of ideas and slap them on paper as an outline that is actually of any benefit. So far, I haveContinue reading “I Think I’m Not a Planner”

November, Here I Come

I have, in the past, halfheartedly said I would do National Novel Writing Month. I even had one April where I started Camp NaNoWriMo. However, after about 5,000 words I realized that the story I was working on wasn’t clicking and I needed to let it go (at least for the time being). However, IContinue reading “November, Here I Come”

Review: All I Want Is You by Toni Blake

My new review of Toni Blake’s book All I Want Is You is up over at All About Romance. Although Toni Blake is one of my authors I automatically read, my enjoyment of All I Want Is You had its ups and downs. I started off really loving the book, but the middle got tooContinue reading “Review: All I Want Is You by Toni Blake”

An Acceptance

Yesterday I received the exciting news that, on the merit of my writing sample and personal statement, I have been admitted to the MFA Writing program at Lindenwood University. I am just awaiting the final admissions decision from the admission department, but I’m not concerned about that at all. I had previously been taking classesContinue reading “An Acceptance”
