September 18, 2018- Congratulations to our very own, Tamara Botting! She is the author of Unfrogged and Pants, two fabulously fun stories. We are so proud of her on her nomination for Best Local Author for the Reader’s Choice Awards! Yay, Tamara; you deserve it!
September 14, 2018- I get asked this question a lot, “How long should it take me to finish writing my novel?” Here’s the answer:
August 6, 2018– As you know Margaret Atwood is the Canadian author of The Handmaid’s Tale. Hugely popular as a television series on Netflix, we thought it would be a fabulous idea to share this Youtube video with you that gets inside of her brain to find out what her creative process is. If you haven’t READ her books yet, do it! What are you waiting for? Here’s some advice from a legend.
July 30, 2018- I had the pleasure of visiting LitFire Publishing’s booth when I was at the London Book Fair in England last March. Here is a fabulous info-graphic about 15 amazing ways to create a book title. This is definitely one of my weaker points and I can’t tell you how often I struggle with naming my books!
July 20, 2018- The only thing worse than burning books is not reading them. Banned books? Really; are you kidding me? How can any book ever be banned? I don’t care what’s inside and as Oscar Wilde so intelligently said, “The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.”
We can all have differences in opinion when it comes to art and art (books) is very subjective. That doesn’t mean that it should be banned. Check out this ASTONISHING list of banned books which I’m very proud to say that I’ve read 3/4 of them and the remaining just landed on my to-read list! I hope you’ll join me in reading these literary wonders. Happy Reading!
July 18, 2018- This is some sage advice from the one and only Ray Bradbury!
June 18, 2018– This complete guide to knife blades is totally awesome and useful when it comes to killing people. Let me be clear because I know the FBI or whatever we have in Canada is reading my posts… and I’m on a list somewhere after writing Obsessed with Her. What I mean is, this is a cool guide for killing off your character in your novel should you choose to do so by way of stabbing. Or cutting up into bits. Or dismembering. Sigh, I love the smell of murder in the morning! This guide will lend to your credibility as a writer and nothing is better or more important than getting your facts straight. Check out the guide below!
May 23, 2018- I definitely use these symbols when I’m editing, mostly the coffee one; LOL! The second and third columns are a joke of course, and most editors don’t use these symbols…if you know an editor that does-RUN!
April 25, 2018- This is so true!
April 23, 2018- This list is totally fab! Check out these reads from countries around the world! Where will you start your adventure?
