Guest Post by Tessa Ditner, Author of Charlie and the Latex Factory

How on earth did you decide to write about London’s fetish scene? Are you mad? This book started as my Masters dissertation. I wanted to write about controversial British artists, like Damien Hirst (pickled sharks and diamond skulls), when my tutor set us some homework. We had to interview someone in an unusual place. I […]

Roots that Clutch by Molly Taggart

I whizzed through this book in just a couple of days. I probably would have finished it one day if it weren’t for a small section in the middle that kind of lost steam a bit. I’m not sure there was any other way to flesh it out, but I did find my mind wandering […]

Shelf Life: The Publicist – Book Twoby Christina George

If even 10% of some of the crazy stuff that could happen in the job of a publisher, I’m really glad I’m a bookkeeper. Like REALLY glad. There is absolutely zero percent chance I would smack an author or coworker. Or anyone that looked at me sideways. Just wow. Perhaps the dysfunction of traditional publishing […]

New Coastal Times by Donna Callea

Was this a humor book or a dark post-apocalyptic novel? That’s what I was left wondering when I finished this book. And then I realized that it was… both. There’s a lot of destruction in this book, the usual level you’re used to getting when reading a good book about a dark and dreary future, […]

Bias Cut by Morgan Richter

When the author sent me this book for review, I wasn’t sure it was something I would be interested in. It is set in the fashion world. I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind of a girl. And not even a fancy t-shirt. Like the “free” ones you get when you do a 5k. Hanes is […]

Yes, Fernando by Kathryn V. White

Short stories are tough. I honestly believe that they must be MUCH harder to write than a full-length novel. You have to get your plot laid out and executed, introduce and expand your characters AND entertain the reader in a small format. I’ve seen this done very well and I’ve seen this done very bad. […]

Guest Post by Morgan Richter, Author of Bias Cut

I used to live in Los Angeles, and I used to work in television. Hence, unavoidably, I’ve met a slew of celebrities. Sometimes the experience was anticlimactic, and sometimes it was unpleasant, but many famous (or quasi-famous) people proved themselves to be pretty decent human beings: Lou Diamond Phillips once cleared a path and held […]
