    Author Interview with Kellyn Roth // Blog Tour

    I had the pleasure of interviewing Kellyn Roth, who is launching the new covers of her novels The Dressmaker’s Secret and Ivy Introspective. She’s a great author and a lot of fun to interview!  First, a bit about her.   Kellyn Roth was born and raised in the country outside a small town in North-Eastern Oregon. Ever since she could talk, she’s had a fascination with words, always coming up with songs, poems, and stories. Now a homeschooled highschooler, she spends her spare time penning historical novels, several of which have been published. Website · Blog · Newsletter · Facebook · Amazon · Goodreads     Let’s jump into the interview!   Welcome,…

    I’m Doing Camp Nanowrimo

    I wasn’t planning on doing Camp Nanowrimo. (If you don’t know what that is, it’s basically where you set a word count goal for yourself and try to meet it in one month. Mostly. Yup.) But then I heard about the Five Poisoned Apples writing contest and since fairy tale retellings are like one of my favorite things ever, I came up with a brilliant* idea. So, I’ll be writing my first draft during Camp and hopefully editing the whole mess before December… O_o *cue nervous laughter* *Brilliancy is in the eye of the beholder. The Association of Brilliant Authors (ABA) has not approved this statement. So, Jonathan at Fishing for Ideas had this idea to do…

    The Reluctant Godfather // blog tour

    I’m so pleased to be a part of the blog tour for The Reluctant Godfather, a newly released novella by the amazing Allison Tebo! It is my first blog tour ever, so let’s all pretend like I know what I’m doing and jump straight in.   About the Book A humorous and magical re-telling of Cinderella from a unique perspective. Burndee is a young and cantankerous fairy godfather, who would rather bake cakes than help humans. A disgrace to the fairy order, Burndee has only two wards entrusted to his care… a cinder girl and a charming prince. A royal ball presents Burndee with the brilliant solution of how to make…

    My summer reading list + 6 books that should be on yours

    Hello everyone! Today I’m going to share some of the books on my summer reading list (obviously not counting the endless library books) and books that should be on yours. I got this idea from a picture my friend Emma Grace sent me. (She recently started a blog! You can check it out here.) We’ll start off with my reading list.. The Scarlet Pimpernel has been on my to-read list for a little too long, and I’ve heard really good things about it. It sounds fantastic and I can’t wait to read it. I found Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life at our thrift store, brand new and gorgeous. I got it…

    beautiful people // june edition

    I’m participating in the Beautiful People linkup again, and you can check it out here. In a nutshell, it’s where two bloggers (Cait from Paper Fury and Sky at Further Up and Further In) ask interview questions to help you get to know your characters better. It was monstrous fun last time (book reference!!), so I had to do it again, of course. I’ll be answering the questions with my character Ryker Kane from my current WIP Project Supernova. Ryker is fourteen years old, goes a high school that I haven’t named yet, and has a mostly normal life. He’s an average size, with dark brown hair, probably blue eyes, and pale skin. The features…

    May // Recap

    Life How do I even start? Well… I did the #walk30days challenge for the first time ever. It was really fun and here are some photos I took. Warning: major photo bomb ahead. Summer break began! Solid Rock ended. We went to Colonial Williamsburg for my birthday and it was amazing. We left late Saturday night (or Sunday morning? It was 12 am), got there Sunday and came home on Wednesday. I was going to put some photos in this post, but there were so many pictures and so many stories I want to tell, so it’ll have to be a separate post. Our youth pastor and his family moved to Pennsylvania to pastor a…
