A book bloggers review of Fifty Shades of Grey Movie… 0

A book bloggers review of Fifty Shades of Grey Movie…

So yes, I went to the movies last night to see Fifty Shades of Grey with 8 friends and I was so damn excited to go!!  We had a few drinks before heading there, watched Jamie and Dakota’s interviews from Jimmy Fallon from this week…the HYPE was there. As we sat in the the theater, waiting through (way too many) previews, the excitement began to build even more.   And so it began…the movie of the book that has changed so  many peoples lives, more indie writers, more sex for many, many housewives and moms and I think the most...

Over-saturated unoriginal indie world 1

Over-saturated unoriginal indie world

Last week I read a blog post that talked about how a few years back Indie was it; this magical place and how happy one click 99 cent deals have saturated the market, and there are so many wannabe authors with unoriginal ideas and that are not edited right. There were a lot of good things in this article, some I could totally see her point, but this was one theme. I DON’T BUY THIS FOR A SECOND!!! I just read Nocte by Courtney Cole. AMAZINGLY BRILLIANT AND ORIGINAL How about Black Lies by Alessandra Torre What about Michelle Valentine’s...

Why I question blogging and how Katy Evans constantly changes  my mind. 1

Why I question blogging and how Katy Evans constantly changes my mind.

Sometimes I question whether or not I should continue blogging. I see a trend of facebook only pages that say they are a blog and infact don’t blog. Don’t get me wrong, I’m stoked that these people are supporting authors. It crosses my mind from time to time that perhaps maybe I should do that too. Stop the blog and keep my facebook page. Why? Several factors, sometimes I think this because it takes a lot of time, and I have limited amounts of that. Other times, I hate when reading feels like an obligation. I don’t like when I...

Indie. Traditional. Hybrid. Love them all?

Way back when, my nook suggested Reason to Breathe by Rebecca Donovan.  When I finished the book, I was in love and wanted to see if there was any place to talk about it.  I didn’t know about Goodreads, I just typed YA books into Facebook and stumbled upon a few blogs and Facebook pages.  I had no idea what an Indie author was.  I would suppose that many other readers are similar.  I found other good books that a few websites, like First Class Books suggested and eventually got a Goodreads account.  Now armed with the knowledge of Indie being...

My affair with words 1

My affair with words

I’m having an affair with words. Stories have been captivating my soul. It’s a love affair in so many ways. The way a story can embrace my heart, can entertain, make me laugh. Make me cry. Think things, feel things, that perhaps I want to hide. I’m having an affair with words. I’m compelled to read, compelled to write. I’m inspired. Words once saved me. My mind would race from all the heartache the world threw on my shoulders. Writing would ease so much of the hurt. Words on a page from my heart and soul would dry my young...
