Blog Tour: A Tale of Two Apples

To all my beautiful people,

I’ve discovered that I have a veracious love for being a part of blog tours, and I’m excited to have the opportunity to share in this one.

Once upon a time, existed the Rooglewood Five Poisoned Apples Contest. Since this contest existed, two of my favorite girls, Rebekah DeVall and Annie Louise Twitchell, submitted to this contest.

Shortly thereafter, Rebekah came and hunted me down. She expressed that she and Annie were going to do a joint publication. As usual, I got roped into the beta reading and editing process–and may I just say that it was a complete joy. I love fantasy, and it’s been a long time since I read a good retelling. The last good one I read was The Girls at Kingfisher Club by Genevieve Valentine.

Having the chance to read these girls’ versions of the tale of Snow White, a story which I do not generally enjoy, I was enthralled. Both were unique and enrapturing tales that I think anyone who loves fantasy will find worth a read.

Writing 101: Vision of Solitude

To all my beautiful people,

I hear so many people make flippant comments about writers. For example, one person told me “oh, you’re a writer, that’s why you spend so much time alone.” Unfortunately, no. I spend a lot of time alone because I just don’t care for a lot of noise and people easily annoy me. The struggles of living life as an INTJ.

That said, I wanted to stop and attack this idea. So many people think of writing as a solitary activity. There are so many reasons and examples of why that isn’t true, that I almost don’t know where to begin. However, begin I must.

777 Challenge

To all my beautiful children,

Well, today is a fun day. You see, I got online to write this post–and then was subsequently alerted to the fact that today is also Romantic Typewriter Garden’s third birthday. So yay! It’s…mostly not dead. (Despite my not having posted in a while.)

So why am I posting today? Well, because I’m bad at saying no mostly. Also because my dear friend, Windy Darlington, tagged me in the 777 Challenge.
