Chat About Covers: Dark Legacy

Chat About Covers: Dark Legacy

  We’re starting a new feature here on Chapter Break called Chat About Covers. ‘Cause you know we all judge books by covers, whether we admit it or not. We judge the style, the color and font choices, and just the overall look. That might not keep us from reading the book, but we do still judge. Goodreads.     Eep. I am so not a fan of bad overlay blends with floating heads. There’s the random human head AND then there’s the random dragon head. Oh gosh and the lightning coming from nowhere hahaha. Ok but I do like… Read more »

Chat Between Chapters: Jobs of Characters in books

Chat Between Chapters: Jobs of Characters in books

Let’s chat about the jobs a character may have. Do their jobs really matter?  Does the character even NEED a job?  Julie: Honestly, most characters appear to not have much of a job, or if they do, their jobs are so flexible that they can run off on some heroic journey and all is well.
