A Review of California

A Review of California (1)

From the 10th through the 14th of March, we were in California. Oceanside, California, to be more exact. Actually, if we want to be 100% exact, we were on Camp Pendleton (my brother-in-law’s a Marine).

I’ve already done this before and talked about it on my blog, so when I was trying to think of a creative way to recap it all for you, I was running a blank. Until I realized something.

You need to know my opinions on Cali! So … I decided to review it! Only my review method are going to be a little … different. (And by different I mean crazy.) (And by crazy I mean please slap me in a straight jacket.) (*maniacal laugh*)

AAWC: Challenge #6 (Finale!)

Today it’s time for the sixth and final in a series of writing challenges in the Ardent Author’s Writing Challenge, hosted by Zielle at My Homeschool Notebook.

As I’ve said before, this is the final challenge … and though it’s nice to see a conclusion to something like this (as well as my story for this particular challenge, The Marvelous Machine), I will miss it! (This entry is gonna be a wacky one, by the way.)

Team Forest is in second place, and this round offers some major point boosters, so we can definitely fix this! Write, write, write!

Are Novels Important?

Are Novels Important_

I’ve heard people say that reading fictional stories is a waste of time, and I wanted to point out why this is not true.

However, it was simply too big a subject for me! Books have taught me certain lessons … but they’ve taught other people completely different things. And I hate to narrow this broad subject down to just my opinions and experiences!

So, through Google Forms, I asked a variety of readers from social media the following questions: What does reading mean to you? How have novels helped you in your life? Why are they worth something to you?

Here are their responses.

V Day sale

That’s right! For Valentine’s Day, we (meaning me and several other Indie authors) are offering several free and discounted ebooks (February 14th-15th). Special thanks for Amanda Tero for putting this all together!

Among these books are The Dressmaker’s Secret and The Lady of the Vineyard (both free today and tomorrow). Hopefully you all will be able to snag a copy! (If you do, tell me what you think! Authors are always wondering if their books are any good.)

This is going to be short. It’s my last post for the 12 Days of Christmas party; after that, we will TRULY be back to regular posts*.

Right now, I’m going to talk about the most important birthday ever!

I’ve decided to add some brief authory updates at the end of this post just ’cause I can’t resist talking about myself. *is super egotistical* *as y’all know*

*I mean it this time! Really! Regular posts! (I bet I’m going to randomly decide to do a hiatus or something … hopefully not though …)
