Kristi R. Johnson is the creator and primary contributor to the book blog Door Stop Novels. Kristi currently works at the University of Texas at San Antonio as a Senior Admin, and part-time at Our Lady of the Lake University as a Writing Consultant. She writes and reads whenever she can, and plans to keep reading, writing, and traveling as priorities in her life, always returning to her home in downtown San Antonio, which is little more than a treehouse with air-conditioning.

Reaper is Kristi's first full-length novel, the first 50,000 words of which were cranked out during NaNoWriMo 2013.

This may be because I have a running list of ideas to pull from at any given time. Also, if I am having a hard time, it is usually a motivation issues, or a distraction issue. But once I force myself to sit down and get started I usually can stay motivated until I am satisfied with the amount I have written.(less)

Don't over plan or over plot, although I do support the idea of starting out with an outline instead of just diving right in. But the most important thing is to just sit down and write. And whatever you do, do not attempt to edit as you write, or you'll never get anywhere. No first drive is ever perfect, so don't try to get everything right the first time. Just get the words out.(less)

This is a difficult one to review. On the one hand, it is new book by the one and only Harper Lee, which in and of itself would be very exciting. For whatever reason, it was initially describes as a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird, probably because i ...more

Victor Hugo
“So long as there shall exist, by reason of law and custom, a social condemnation which, in the midst of civilization, artificially creates a hell on earth, and complicates with human fatality a destiny that is divine; so long as the three problems of the century - the degradation of man by the exploitation of his labour, the ruin of women by starvation and the atrophy of childhood by physical and spiritual night are not solved; so long as, in certain regions, social asphyxia shall be possible; in other words and from a still broader point of view, so long as ignorance and misery remain on earth, there should be a need for books such as this.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom you will serve, wether the Gods of your fathers who were on the other side of the flood, or the Gods of the ammorites in whos land you dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version

Zora Neale Hurston
“It is so easy to be hopeful in the daytime when you can see the things you wish on. But it was night, it stayed night. Night was striding across nothingness with the whole round world in his hands . . . They sat in company with the others in other shanties, their eyes straining against cruel walls and their souls asking if He meant to measure their puny might against His. They seemed to be staring at the dark, but their eyes were watching God.”
Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

Steve Martin
“A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.”
Steve Martin
