Jenna Moreci Jenna Moreci's blog:

A few months ago, I had the privilege of visiting a local
high school in order to talk about success, entrepreneurship, and my personal
journey as a writer. It was an incredible experience, and the kids (erm, young
adults?) were sweet, smart, and hilarious.

Before my visit, each kid was

Two years earlier, Sanford h... Read more of this blog post »

I’m concerned about a possible upcoming plot twist on the TV show GAME OF THRONES. I guess it is my favorite TV show — the only one I watch live, and I usually rewatch it a coupl...

Lately I've noticed a lot of erotica riddled with ridiculous anatomy descriptions. Personally, when it comes to genitalia, I think the classics are where it's at. I'll never complain about reading "cock" or "pussy" in erotica. Recently, I've come across things like "meat pole" and "sex tunnel". I... Read more of this blog post »

The Novelistas loved Harold Fry so much that we picked The Love Song Of Miss Queenie Hennessy for our book this month. It didn't quite match the high bar that is Harold Fry and his pilgrimage, but it's a warm companion piece. Definitely recommend it for your summer reading.

Mostly.

Sort of.

I mean, not totally. I’m not so “take me as I am” that I proudly walk around without pants, or refuse to shower, or pick my nose in public and dare somebody to question me.

I still color my premature gray...
