Please welcome Julie Caldwell to Chapter Break as part of the Blogger Book Fair! Guest Post: Top Ten Quick Quotes from Psyched: 1. Aisi sat up impatiently and glowered at the figure before her. The shadow of a person bore the faintest trace of bobby socks, saddle shoes, and poodle skirt in her translucent, luminous form. Aisi snorted derisively. “You’re dead, okay? And from the looks of your outfit, I’d say you’ve been gone about sixty years. I would gouge my eyes out before I’d wear something like that.” 2. ‘Go toward the light’ was cliché, but effective.  3.

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 »
