Thanks to everyone who entered this years Spooktacular Giveaway Hop! I would say this was definitely a banner year for visitors and entries! If you entered your email addy into the rafflecopter, you are getting a goody from me as a thanks for entering. I love to give gifties to my visitors and I'm thinking of giving something extra special to my mailing list members, especially my new ones. :-D

November is here! NaNoWriMo has arrived and the creative writing community is all abuzz with new works both fiction and non-fiction related. I love it!

I'll be be a bonafide NaNoRebel this year again! Instead of starting something new, I need to finish up a few things before diving into my new projects. A few are short stories and one is a novel. I have a light outline I'm working with since this is a continuation and not a totally new story in a new world. One of the things that really helped me cross the finish line with Camp NaNo is having a clear goal to my ending and I think that could help me here.

In addition to that, I'll be trying to finish up my books to review in the queue and get some more goodies out for you guys to read. So stay tuned, grab your tea, coffee and cocoa and get ready!

Mailing list is going out in the next few days so if you just joined, you're getting another nice goody from me!

Thanks always for visiting and happy reading and writing to you all!

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…
