#ShelfLove February 2016: Book Boyfriend

#ShelfLove Challenge 2016 We’re co-hosting the #ShelfLove challenge again this year so join us and read more of the books you already bought! February’s topic: Who is your book boyfriend or girlfriend or best friend? What qualities does this character have that makes him/her the best? Julie’s Challenge Update: This one is quite difficult now that I’ve read all these amazing books. My first book boyfriend was Dimitri from the series. Lynn is working her way through that series now, so she knows why. He’s dreamy, and protective, and fierce. (But let’s not take the movie version into account, OK? Really,… Read more »

Chat Between Chapters: Sports

Chat Between Chapters: Sports

  Let’s chat about sports in books. Who are some of your favorite characters who are also jocks?  Julie: I’ve been trying to rack my brain to figure out if I’ve read any books where our main hero or heroine is a jock or really into sports, but I’m drawing a blank. Methinks this is not my genre. I looked at some of the Goodreads Lists for such a topic, and am not really coming up with any that I have marked “read”. There are some lists that include the Beautiful Disaster/Walking Disaster books, which I have read, but I don’t… Read more »

Guest Post: Rachel Dunning on Writing to Please Everyone

Guest Post: Rachel Dunning on Writing to Please Everyone

Writing to Please Everyone (HINT: It Ain’t Gonna Happen…) by Rachel Dunning   The first book I ever wrote got two reviews almost instantly after publishing: A scathing, horrible, painful, depressing one-star. And a glorious, over-the-top, mind-blowing, filled-with-gifs, praising, laudatory five-star. The one-star was on Amazon. The five-star was on Goodreads. By chance, I happened to see the five-star review first. It’s why I’m still writing today. There are only two truly important skill levels a writer should know about: Good enough. Not good enough. The key word there is enough. Authors try too hard to write “the perfect story.” It’s… Read more »
