Finding Harmony (Katie & Annalise Book 3)

The third book in this series contained an incredibly tense plotline that kept me zooming through the pages so I could find out what happened next. I both love and hate suspense, especially when it’s done well, because I can’t concentrate on anything else until it’s resolved. This book definitely did it well. A big […]

Leaving Annalise (Katie & Annalise Book 2)

I actually started thinking about how much information I prefer to know about a book prior to reading, and I’ve decided all I need is the blurb (the shorter the better) and the average star rating. I actually really like reading full reviews after I’ve read the book to see if people agreed with certain […]

Saving Grace (Katie & Annalise Book 1)

This was my first book from Bookbub and it didn’t disappoint. Saving Grace is set in the Caribbean and features an attorney named Katie who likes to drink. It’s romantic mystery, but there actually isn’t a lot of romance in this first book. At least not reciprocated romance. Katie is hung up on Nick, a […]

Take Off Your Pants…

No, this is not the name of a new erotic fiction novel. It’s a great little book by Libbie Hawker about outlining a novel. I’m in the process of reworking my latest project using this formula, so I’ll let you know if it does in fact make the whole writing task easier. But I’m pretty […]

Rematch by Rachael Slate – Mini Review

This is my second Rachael Slate book, and I loved revisiting the world she created in Trancing The Tiger. It is a much shorter story, so faster paced, but it still has depth and awesome characters. Wen and Li were great leads, the storyline was fun to read, and it was nice to see a […]

She makes an interesting point about writing the whole story first and then releasing it a chapter at a time, but reminding readers that they can buy […]

Romance Writing Structure

Even though I’ve written two novels, I still feel a bit clueless when it comes to structuring one. I find the middle particularly hard to deal with, especially when trying to incorporate a romantic relationship into the story. So I went hunting and found this cool post about the seven story beats in a romance […]

Trancing The Tiger by Rachael Slate – Review

This story is crazy! And amazing! I actually don’t read much romance (unless you count chick-lit, but then the love story is only about 50% of the story) and I’ve never read any fantasy stuff, so Trancing The Tiger was a whole new world for me. I loved the overall vibe, which oozed passion in […]
