Top Ten Tuesday: The Bookworm Wishlist

Top Ten Tuesdays were born on The Broke and the Bookish and then moved to That Artsy Reader Girl just this year. It's all about a love of books, lists, and combining the two as a gloriously nerdy whole. Come join in! This week's list is all about bookish items or merchandise I’d like to own. Tie down all [...]

IWSG Day: Life Among the Butterflies

Oh happy day! The day when you can set down that insecurity for a while and bask in the feeling of gently being propped up by your fellow authors. If you're not part of this group, what are you waiting for? Any and all kinds of authors are welcome. The trolls are absent. The support [...]

The Fall Book Tag

   Something about Rowell's writing style feels like nothing I've read before, and I love it! I mean. This ending is iconic for a reason. The movie kind of captured it, but not . . . quite.  All of them are nonstop, brutal action, TBH.  I think I caught up on all of Tessa Dare's [...]

Top Ten Tuesday, Villain Edition

Want to join in on the fun? Go sign up at That Artsy Reader Girl and come blog hop with all of us bookworms. I have to admit, I love a good villain. The action seems more exciting, the stakes are higher, the plot is richer and the snark factor (in the best books) goes up by [...]

Top Ten Longest Books I’ve Ever Read

Sometimes a long book, like a really long one, can be the most satisfying read. Short stories have their own charms, regular size books are satisfying, but when a good author has you in hand a thousand page book just feels like dropping into a new world and staying there. You really get to know the [...]

Top Ten Authors I’d Love to Meet

Top Ten Tuesdays was created by The Broke and the Bookish and recently moved over to That Artsy Reader Girl. It's all about a love of books, and a love of lists about books. Let's all remember that I'm super introverted, though. So I don't know about "meet". Meet involves talking and thinking up something to [...]

Top Ten Tuesday: Hidden Gems You Need in Your Life

I have a soft spot for these six lovelies. Some of them are older and therefore mostly forgotten, what with all the shiny new stuff coming out every year. A few are newer, but might not have had the best marketing. Whatever the reason, they're the underdog and we all know I'm a complete sucker [...]

Traditionally, We Self-Publish

This is an Insecure Writer's Support Group post. The IWSG is all about support, encouragement and connection with other writers as we dodge the rejection bullets together. If you're thinking this sounds like a band of brothers you would like to join, come on over and sign up for the group here. Don't forget to hop [...]

Get Ye Back to Schoole: Top Ten Tuesday

This is a TTT post. On Tuesdays we make lists, we love books, and we makes lists about how much we love books. Wednesdays are for wearing pink. This week's list is broadly on the topic of learning, since most of us are either going back to school, know someone who is, or are hauling [...]

Adding AllAuthor to Your Author Toolbox

Yes, there is BookBub.com. It's right up there with the ginormous Goodreads as a top spot for recommendations and book lists. Pretty much every post or anecdote I've heard about BookBub emphasizes how amazing it is when it comes to promotion. I believe those posts, and I'm happy for those authors but . . . BookBub will promote [...]
