Gifted Thief Wraps Comedy into Fantasy

I received Gifted Thief as an ARC (advanced reader copy) in exchange for an honest review. I had stumbled across this book and the summary intrigued me and Helen Harper was generous to send me a copy, as us Harpers have to stick together! This book is scheduled to release 01/29/16.

Writer or Editor?

So I was recently bestowed with a beta read of a new author’s book and was super stoked! I haven’t had the opportunity to critique anyone’s writing in a very very very long time. Naturally, I took my time, ensuring that I picked up on all the grammar issues, any plot issues, characterization and the … Continue reading

Well, I am going to be lazy and just copy and paste a poem I wrote for my Creative Writing class this last semester. It’s kind of how I am feeling right now as well. Hope you all enjoy. It’s also a very very poor attempt at iambic pentameter. Here we go. — Not A … Continue reading

Story Time

I have absolutely no idea what I am going to write about for fiction writing. I have been scowering my brain and it is as if my brain has been on a vacation for the last week or so. I have no idea why my mind would be doing this to me! Why doesn’t it … Continue reading

Read, Read, Read

I am really going to miss just being able to read whatever I desire when I get home from work or school. I’m trying to read as much as possible in the next few days. This summer has just seemed too short! I have been traveling through so many different worlds these last few months … Continue reading

Where Are YOU From?

Where I work, a lot of people ask me where famous Oklahomans are from in Oklahoma. You’d think this would be a simple question with a simple answer, right? Wrong! A good example is Reba. Reba was born in a little place called Stringtown, Oklahoma and grew up in an even smaller place called Chockie, … Continue reading
