Gah! *wipes away happy tears* Stories like this are why Wendy Sparrow is on my auto-buy list.

Yes, it's a novella and short, but it's also funny, sweet, and fantastic. I literally laughed out loud several times, and many lines are priceless. The chara...more

I love Angela and Becca’s The Emotion Thesaurus, so I had high hopes for their new Trait books but didn't see how they could live up to the ET. I’m happy to say I was wrong. These two additions are fantastic resources for writers.

I'm picky with novellas because it's so hard to create a story that feels complete and has well-rounded, believable characters. The shorter length also means any little problem is more noticeable.

But this story was perfect. :)

4.5 Stars: I love, love, love the cover. Maybe because the cover is so awesome, I wanted to fall for Jack a little bit more than I did.

Kate's side of the story is really well done, but Jack's story felt a tad weak to me. He starts off somewhat immatu...more

I saw this story in an earlier form, but I didn't want to write a review until I'd gotten a chance to read the finished version. Yes, I paid for the real version, even though I'd already read most of it before. :)

Jeanne is on page 66 of 73 of Talking Sense About 'Fifty Shades of Grey', or, Fanfiction, Feminism, and BDSM: "If Ana were ever to decide she’d been conned and seek to divorce Christian, citing his BDSM behaviour as coercive, not consensual, the courts in very many jurisdictions would take her entirely seriously (a Fifty Shades fanfic I’d really like to see)." Me too!

“I think I just fell into like with him.”
Kresley Cole, Demon From the Dark

C.S. Lewis
“To Lucy Barfield

My Dear Lucy,
I wrote this story for you, but when I began it I had not realized that girls grow quicker than books. As a result you are already too old for fairy tales, and by the time it is printed and bound you will be older still. But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again. You can then take it down from some upper shelf, dust it, and tell me what you think of it. I shall probably be too deaf to hear, and too old to understand a word you say, but I shall always be your affectionate Godfather,
C.S. Lewis”

“How old are you?”
“Physiologically, I’m twenty-five. Chronologically, I’m…not.”

“It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.”
Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay

“Can’t hear… call back… good luck…”
“Nïx, I know you’re faking the static.” She could picture her sister blowing into her fist directly at the receiver. The static abruptly stopped.
“It seemed less rude than the alternative.”
“What’s that?”
