Writing Prompt of the Day

January 3, 2018- Often times, as a writing exercise, authors will use prompts to get the creative juices flowing. I like to use images sometimes because it jump starts my imagination. This image is a powerful one. While using this prompt there are some questions that you should answer: Is the person looking at the elephant a person at all or are they another animal? How did one come across the elephant? Where were they headed? Where did they come from? etc. Happy Writing! Elephant, Animals, Asia, Large, Bright, Close

Book Shots…My new fave thing

December 28, 2017-Has anyone seen these in their local bookstore? Well, let me tell you, they’re my new favourite thing! Book shots are little books that are packed with big action from the first page to the last and everywhere in between. A recent study shows that adult readers have approximately 5 minutes, yes, you read that correctly 5 MINUTES to read per day. When I’m short on time and want to get a fast-paced, easy read in, I pick up a book shot. You should try one too, you’ll love it!
