For those who have read Trampled Underfoot and are curious as to the characters' future beyond what was written within the pages of this book, I have revised the notes and acknowledgments page for you to read here.     This book never would’ve seen publication if it weren’t for the gentle urging...

Denny Taylor Denny Taylor's blog:
The BBF was simply wonderful -- well organized, low key, lots of small indie publishers and lots of readers of original works that challenge the big five publishers whose offerings often seem to be media managed and more about selling than compelling.

What I liked best was meeting readers -- many... Read more of this blog post »

Friends: Last week I asked what’s the annual cost of owning a small, medium and large sized dog, respectively.

The annual cost of owning a dog depends on its size and is based on the same ASPA life expectancy estimates we noted last time: $1,001 for a small dog, $1,214 for a medium-sized dog, and... Read more of this blog post »

There are basically two ways to motivate someone to action. A person can be motivated by consequences or by rewards. Personally, I prefer the latter. I’d much rather receive a reward than suffer a consequence. Usually that’s the case with kids too.

Într-o zi, am încetat să ne mai iubim și cred că știu de ce

Poate că ne îndrăgostim fără să ne dăm seama. Prea din senin. Prea brusc. Prea fără scăpare. Dar nu încetezi să iubești la fel de ușor. Din păcate, oare? Sau din fericire? Nu știu sigur. Dar știu că doare. Știu că ești atât de conștient...

Melanie Stanford Melanie Stanford's blog:

It's always great to finish up a series. It's an accomplishment of sorts. And if the books are good, it's seeing favorite characters get the endings they deserve. It's finishing with a sense of satisfaction and closure. Hopefully.

Luckily, both of these 3rd books in YA trilogies did that for me.
