Bite-Sized Reviews of The Ogress and the Orphans, The Button Box, Home Is Not a Country, and El Cucuy Is Scared, Too!

Bite-Sized Reviews of The Ogress and the Orphans, The Button Box, Home Is Not a Country, and El Cucuy Is Scared, Too!

Today, I’m reviewing two MG fantasies (one historical), a YA verse novel, and a picture book! I hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! With its distinctly fairy-tale feel, The Ogress and the Orphans tells a story of misconceptions and misunderstanding and the way we can sometimes judge each other without thiking and without evidence. The ogress has spent years trying to bring joy to the townspeople by leaving them […]

Shinji Takahashi and the Mark of the Coatl by Julie Kagawa: Review & Giveaway

Shinji Takahashi and the Mark of the Coatl by Julie Kagawa: Review & Giveaway

Amazon, Kindle, Audible, B&N, iBooks, Kobo, TBD I’m a huge fan of Kagawa’s YA books, so I was excited to see what her MG has to offer, and I was definitely not disappointed. Apparently this book is a spin-off of existing Society of Explorers and Adventurers lore that you can find in the actual Disney theme parks. I didn’t know anything about that storytelling, but that didn’t lessen my enjoyment of the book (and I’m actually headed […]

Aru Shah and the Nectar of Immortality by Roshani Chokshi: Review & Giveaway

Amazon, Kindle, Audible, B&N, iBooks, Kobo, TBD This final installment in the Pandava Series starts out with our heroes at their lowest. The kids have to figure out how to rely on their own innate talents to stop the Sleeper now that they’re weaponless. All while fighting the sting of betrayal and massive self-doubt. As always, this series is a fun ride. We get adventure, magical hijinks, and a heaping serving of Hindu folklore with a dash of romance and a […]

My New 2022 Writing Method

My New 2022 Writing Method

I’ve mentioned my newest WIP a few times now, but I haven’t given many details about the methods behind my writing. Writing verse novels is an intensive process. You have to analyze each and every word and weigh its value within the piece. The low wordcount for verse novels can be both liberating and limiting. But I read a writing craft book this week called Writing Right by James R. Matheson, and this book radically […]
