It’s Baaack! IMM & Mailbox Monday

This week was a wild ride of writing for me. I learned that one of my manuscripts was requested by an editor at a major house. I sent a proposal to an epub who’s setting up a new line of books and I want to write some “sweet romances” for their line. I discovered that I won the Alien Vampire Bunny contest from Greyhaus Literary and I got some long overdue crits done for my critique group. SO- I didn’t get to read like I have for the last couple months (which was without abandon).

This week, I can thank my local library for two books I love and will be buying. Neither are new, but both are fabulous!


Giving Up the V by Serena Robar

What’s So Wrong With Waiting

Spencer Davis just turned sixteen. But unlike most hormonal teenagers who seem obsessed with sex — like her entire crew of friends — Spencer just doesn’t get it. She’d rather wait for the right guy and the right moment. But that moment may be arriving sooner than she’d thought.

Enter Benjamin Hopkins, a new transfer student who seems to have his eyes on our V-card-carrying heroine. He’s gorgeous, funny, suave, athletic, and capable of making Spencer’s knees wobble with a single glance. Spencer has never felt this way about anyone before, but is Ben truly V-worthy?


On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King

On Writing is both a textbook for writers and a memoir of Stephen’s life and will, thus, appeal even to those who are not aspiring writers.  If you’ve always wondered what led Steve to become a writer and how he came to be the success he is today, this will answer those questions.

In this master class on the craft of writing, Stephen King reveals the origins of his vocation and shares essential habits and rules that every writer can apply. A truly unique volume, it begins with a series of telling memories from youth and the struggling years leading up to publication of King’s first novel. Offering readers a fresh and often funny perspective on the formation of a writer’s character, King lays out the tools of writer’s craft and takes the reader through aspects of the writer’s art and life, offering practical and inspiring advice on everything from plot and character to work habits and rejection. Brilliantly structured and chock-full of master’s experience and advice, On Writing will enable the work of writers around the globe.
