Blogger Book Fair: N.R. Wick Guest Post

Please welcome N.R. Wick to Chapter Break as part of the Blogger Book Fair! Guest Post: Writing Middle Grade fiction and Young Adult fiction by N. R. Wick Hi everyone! It’s a pleasure to be here. One of the things I get asked a lot my family and friends is if I approach young adult fiction differently than middle grade fiction. The funny thing is that I don’t really do anything differently. My process is pretty much the same, and so is my writing style. Even though I don’t put too much thought in how I differentiate between the two,… Read more »

Harlequin Teen #YeahYA! Tour, Houston stop

Harlequin Teen #YeahYA! Tour, Houston stop

@Page Turners Blog is the official Houston blogger for the #YeahYA event, so definitely check out the official post there 🙂 But just cause I’m not the official blogger doesn’t mean I can’t write-up my own summary. 🙂 The tour was hosted at Katy Budget Books, which was so convenient I just couldn’t NOT go. I mean, it was like 10 minutes from my house. I literally went to the event on my way to the grocery store. Julie Kagawa and Aimee Carter were the two authors at the Harlequin Teen #YeahYA! Houston stop. Here’s a closer photo of Julie… Read more »

Feature and Follow Friday – July 19, 2013

Feature for July 19, 2013 – Book Vacay: Where is the best destination reading spot for you? (Where do you like to go to read other then your home)   Rose: I know this will more than likely sound super lame, but I love to read at the library.  It is peaceful. I will never run into anyone I do not wish to see. Everyone is quiet. No one looks at me like I am a weirdo for reading forever and a day on a perfectly sunny afternoon and best yet, if I finish the book I am currently on, I can… Read more »

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge, Day 4 – Flinging Books

It’s Day 4 of  the 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge, started up by Good Books and Good Wine.   Rose’s Last Book Flung Across The Room: So I do not like to bash books or anything, but I found myself trapped in some serious book flinging flashback when I saw today’s blog prompt.  It was awful. Imagine, if you will, a girl much like myself (because, you know, this is MY flashback) eagerly swiping on her Kindle and tapping the screen over an image of a much anticipated read.  Then, imagine if you will, said girl having devoured the book and upon reach the… Read more »

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge, Day 3- Blogging BFFs

It’s Day 3 of  the 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge, started up by Good Books and Good Wine.   Julie: Well Rose is definitely my blogging BFF since she is my co-blogger! It is awesome to be able to discuss ideas and topics and memes to participate in with another. It is great to do a sanity check with each other ’cause sometimes I think I get carried away and sign up for too much stuff and then can’t seem to keep up. On my personal blog, I’d have to say Miranda is my closest blogging BFF. We’ve been online friends for years!… Read more »
