The Scarlet Trilogy by A.C. Gaughen

I have a bit of a confession to make: I owned Scarlet for over a year before I pulled it off my bookshelf and set to reading it. And I bought Lady Thief  before I ever read Scarlet because I was a sucker for the idea behind the story and the breathtaking covers. But I still […]

Book Review: Unconditional by Cherie Hudson

Unconditional by Cherie Hudson **This title is NEW ADULT and not appropriate for teen readers** Many thanks to Pan Macmillan for offering me an ARC of this title. Their generosity has no impact on my review. I enjoyed this title and burned through it in one day. It’s a light-hearted semi-fairy tale of a young […]

Writing Real Characters

So, lately I’ve not been here, on my blog, because I am trying to get the final edits to CRUEL SUMMER done, so you can get your hot little hands on Kian, Ana, and MJ on March 16th, 2015 at the Girl Power Author Panel (deets to come). But I needed to squeeze in some […]

BEER and BOOKS TONIGHT!

ABOUT THE AUTHORS   A.C. Gaughen is shamelessly addicted to staying up far too late (it feels like stealing time), diet coke (it burns so good), Scotland (stupid country stole her heart and won’t give it back. Interpol has been ineffective for prosecution) and thieves (so she technically isn’t that mad at Scotland). She is published by Walker Books […]

Book Review – The Secrets We Keep by Trisha Leaver

While I do not have a sister, the idea of giving up one’s whole existence for the sake of another is both poignant and painful to absorb. In The Secrets We Keep by Trisha Leaver, readers travel through Ella Lawton’s life – that of a semi-outcast whose popular twin sister, Maddy, has cast her aside for […]

Book Review – CREED by Leaver and Currie

Elijah Hawkins needs to die. Slowly. Painfully. Tortured until his pleads for mercy only serve to fuel my inner demon. Needless to say, I am not a fan of the man, which is why he was so perfectly written. When I started reading CREED by Trisha Leaver and Lindsay Currie, I was expecting to hide […]

Cassie Mae Book Reviews

Last year I stumbled upon an author by the name of Cassie Mae and her book, FRIDAY NIGHT ALIBI. The riotous way Mae wrote her main characters quickly had me hooked. In FRIDAY NIGHT ALIBI, soon-to-be-college student Kellie makes quite a few bucks thanks to the boys in town who want to date girls their parents don’t exactly […]

Know thy Audience. ALWAYS.

If there is ever a phrase that sends chills through my body, it is: “Well, I’m not really sure if my COMPLETED manuscript is exactly aimed for teens. Maybe it is more middle grade? But then again, I guess it could be adult.” Oh, dear lord. There is nothing, NOTHING more important than knowing WHO […]
