Dennis Canfield Dennis Canfield's blog:
I'm really excited to receive my first editorial review for Ethan and the Key, from the middle-grade book review website, Bookworm for Kids. 5 stars! This adventure rides as smooth and as thrilling as the flight through the clouds on a mystical dragon.

The cafe hummed a note of non-rhythmic jingle. Mila Rahman sat with a glass of sparkling water reading Fitzgerald’s Tender is the Night; deep in reading, she took a sip occasionally. As it stands, the passages of infidelity bothered her more than the stylistic complexity of the book. It resonated... Read more of this blog post »

The Dinner Party and Other StoriesThe Dinner Party and Other Stories by Joshua Ferris

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I read and enjoyed Then We Came to the End (a great novel about life in an office), enough to read Joshua Ferris' second novel, The Unnamed (about a man who can't stop walking, a very difficult concept to pull off and not... Read more of this blog post »

I ran my first Goodreads giveaway five years ago. Initially, I was thrilled with the response. Of the two books I listed, I received over 600 requests on one of the titles, and nearly 500 on the other. When the winners were chosen, I sat down the following day to write notes to each of the 10 win... Read more of this blog post »

Rebecca Donovan Rebecca Donovan's blog:

I have been found and lost within music. Certain songs feel like an amplifier plugged directly into my emotions. The bass thumps in time with my pulse. The melody sends me adrift, floating along with the lyrics.

When I’m creating, a song can transform into a scene, straight into my pages. Her. Him...
