Every January I make a To-Do list of all my major works in progress and figure out which ones I want to prioritize. Here’s the 2017 edition.

Looking back over last year, I’m super proud of all the work I’ve done. So many short stories got finished up, published, and I’m hoping that more get picked up soon. Here’s a quick rundown of everything I published this year.

Was it the best VC book I've read. Oh god, not at all! At the same time it wasn't the worst either. It had some very good scenes and some interesting new characters. I always relished the time we spent in Louis' head or in Armand's. These felt real t ...more

Marlena Frank and 828 other people liked Khanh (the Grinch)'s review of Fangirl:
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
"Actual rating: 2.5
Levi said. “It’s hard for me to get my head around. It’s like hearing that Harry Potter is gay."
Ok, why the fuck are you referencing Harry Potter after having based the entire book around a fictionalized version of Harry Potter..." Read more of this review »

This was a good book with an interesting premise. The romance scenes were too plentiful toward the end though, and each of them felt like it went on far too long. Too much time was spent on characters making out instead of furthering the plot.

Marlena Frank Rapunzel's Daughters is up here on Goodreads! How cool is that?? Now everybody can add it to their to-read list and ogle over the incredible stories and beautiful artwork!
Rapunzel's Daughters and Other Tales by Josie Brown, Rose Mambert, Bill Racicot


Marlena Frank Just saw that the App Store for the Nook Color opened today. You can bet I'll be downloading it tonight to try it out. Looking forward to a decent PDF experience as well as being able to have Flash and Email capability.

Lisa Kessler I have a Kindle and I LOVE it!!! Hands-free reading and never losing your place is a beautiful thing! :)

THanks for checking out Across the Veil too!!! I hope you enjoy it... It should be in the B&N store soon or you can get it on Smashwords.com for the Nook too I think... :)

Marlena Frank So I bought myself a Nook Color last weekend. I have a feeling this is going to greatly increase my reading output this year. How cool is it to have your books at your fingertips, and always the right size for my purse? ;)

So far I'm loving the free book Fridays, the sudoku, the crossword, and how easy Calibre is able to transfer Project Gutenberg books over. And once our library system starts offering more eBooks, I'll be able to read those easily on it as well!


Marlena Frank I'm loving it more and more. Plan to move my stuff over from Visual Bookshelf once their site's back up again. =)

Lena
