Write Your Novel Cover Reveal

 Today, as you can tell from the title, I've got something special in store. My first cover reveal post! I am super excited to be doing this reveal for  Go Teen Writers: Write Your Novel by Stephanie Morrill, Jill Williamson, and Shannon Dittemore.  Go Teen Writers  is a site that helps any beginner writer (or a writer like me who isn't new at writing but is still learning all the techniques, tips, advice, etc), so this upcoming book is perfect for anyone who would find use of their blog.  First, before I show the cover, here is the blurb, so you'll know what it is all about. You have a story to tell, don't you? Or maybe you simply want to try your hand at fiction writing. Perhaps you've given it your best effort, but simply didn't have enough tools in your tool box to finish that first draft. Wherever you're at with this novel-writing thing, popular Stephanie Morrill, Jill Williamson, and Shannon Dittemore totally understand. They know it's hard to fini

The Hobbiton Tag

  Here's another tag that I just couldn't pass up. It is about Tolkien's Hobbits after all, and we all know that they are adorable, fun and just plain awesome.  For something so small, they prove to be very courageous (plus entertaining). Anyway, this tag is for Bilbo and Frodo's birthday. Happy birthday, little hobbits, you who have won many readers' hearts and are still probably winning more. 💜 The rules: Please use the above graphic and link back to me! (created by a girl called Emily , whose blog is another one on my list to read and follow but haven't yet) Answer the questions. Tag as many people as you like! The questions: 1. You've invited Bilbo over for second breakfast. What are you serving? Croissants. With ham and cheese inside. They are one of my favourite foods, and is definitely something that I would have as a second breakfast for real.   2. It's a nice, cozy evening in your hobbit hole. What kind of hot drink do you relax with? Um... non

Favourite Books - A Monster Calls

This book review was meant to be written around the same time as Within These Lines. Yes, that happened (not). But it is here finally. A Monster Calls is by Patrick Ness and it is a standalone. A movie has been made of it.  And this is the blurb: The monster showed up after midnight. As they do. But it isn't the monster Conor's been expecting. He's been the one from his nightmare, the nightmare he's had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming... This monster, though, is something different. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth. Rating: 💜💜💜💜💜 (5/5) Content: There was nothing major to mention here. Genre: Contemporary fantasy I want to mention that, while the content were only very mild references, they are, in my opinion, what made this book a YA and not a children's book. Otherwise, I would think this book was fo
