We're going to need a bigger boat

It's the most craziest time of the year for writers and aspiring writers. That's right, it's NaNoWriMo! Smack dab in the middle of shopping season. Bring on the crazy!

I'll be writing during the month of November in between doing some incoming graphic design/animation projects so I will be scarcely online. I'll also be permanently glued to my chair, pounding away at the keyboard writing a new book from the inspiration of NaNo (woo hoo) and I'll be at the SYTYCW at Harlequin amidst working on some other projects I want to bring out for sale.

For folks wondering about Harlequin's So You Think You Can Write event (SYTYCW) check that out here: 

The Cimmerian Series is coming back (woo hoo!) and the Ashen Twilight series is coming to an end. In between that, we have some shorter fiction coming out and a specialized bookstore where you can buy my work and some other authors direct from the website. Stay tuned for the link and more info soon!

In other news, I received a really cool announcement today. Being a huge graphic novel and comic fan here at AWD, we have a special guest interview coming up with some comic artists and writers so this ties into the news.
Congrats to the winners!

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…

Book Review ~ Who R U Really? ~ A Highly Recommended Read

Who R U Really? by Margo Kelly

Thea's overprotective parents are driving her insane. They invade her privacy, ask too many questions, and restrict her online time so severely that Thea feels she has no life at all. When she discovers a new role-playing game online, Thea breaks the rules by staying up late to play. She's living a double life: on one hand, the obedient daughter; on the other, a girl slipping deeper into darkness. In the world of the game, Thea falls under the spell of Kit, an older boy whose smarts and savvy can't defeat his loneliness and near-suicidal despair. As Kit draws soft-hearted Thea into his drama, she creates a full plate of cover stories for her parents and then even her friends.

Soon, Thea is all alone in the dark world with Kit, who worries her more and more, but also seems to be the only person who really "gets" her. Is he frightening, the way he seems sometimes, or only terribly sad? Should Thea fear Kit, or pity him? And now, Kit wan…
