Elaine-Dance Your Way From Mental Slavery

Know that meme “Dance Like No One’s Watching”? Write like no
one’s reading. Which they probably aren’t. I’m talking the indie life here

The Wolf Queen by Cerece Rennie Murphy

As October catches its chill, the mind wants a book it can cuddle under a blanket with as the author whispers "Let me tell you a story." The Wolf Queen fit that bill for me, and I'll start out saying it got 5 out of 5 for reaching past the sky to gra ...more

"Sheer pleasure" doesn't mean brainless, it means engaging all the facets of appreciation, which Bennis seems incapable of NOT doing. When a writer has as much fun writing as R.B. does--and fun shows in the prose big time--it's hard avoiding getting ...more

And then it hit me: why Kelly Robson is one of my top favs. She approaches writing with such a big sense of fun, wonder, and intelligent silent- conversation between writer and reader as to be irresistible. So few writers seem willing to create an en ...more

“Sitcom Jesus had all the right ingredients but wasn’t funny enough for anyone to want to buy the entire first season on DVD.”
Zig Zag Claybourne, Historical Inaccuracies

“Men and women who had worn suits for decades traded punches powerful enough to crush elephant skulls, dodged and deflected attacks too fast for the eye to follow, and died suddenly, often before the crowd registered the killing blow.
