K.S. Villoso K.S. Villoso's blog:

I absolutely love reading novels when the writer has an idea of flow and rhythm in their work. I’m not big on flowery words or descriptions myself, but flow–ah, if a writer can make his or her prose sound like poetry, I’m sold.

I’ve kissed a lot of boys.

I’m not ashamed to admit that I was pretty darn cute in high school. What? I was! I think most boys liked me, though, because I was down-to-earth, approachable, and I liked to crack jokes and be myself. In turn, I also didn’t just like certain boys over others because t...

Press Release----

While Jennifer Lang’s ‘The Whistle-Blower’s Confession’ may read like a wildly-imaginative movie, its narrative is shockingly true. Just like her protagonist, Lang set out to investigate what was causing her mother’s chronic illness, only to discover that it was the Genetically-M... Read more of this blog post »

Bucket, Beach

It’s an inventory of things people want to do before they “kick the bucket.” The idea is, since our time on earth is limited, if something is important for us to do, we have to do it now, because this is our only chance to do...
