Synopsis: Desi has been promoted to a level-two sub in her princess gig. She had to give up her job at the pet store to train in all things royal –not exactly a hardship- but now school has started and she’s gotten a role in the local play, so balancing everything has gotten a little dicey. Not to mention the fact that Façade seems to be stealing magic… Continue reading “Book Review: The Royal Treatment by Lindsey Leavitt”
As I promised in the post with Avery Olive’s Guest Post, I am now sharing with you a few questions that will give an additional peak into the world of writers. Instead of learning the lingo as we already saw, this time Avery lets us see into her own little world as a writer. Thank you so much for taking the time to share this with us, Avery! Continue reading “All About Authors: Writerly Questions with Avery Olive”
It was just one month ago that an author was brought to my attention by the name of Avery Olive. Her new novel A Stiff Kiss has recently been published by Crescent Moon Press and is currently doing a blog tour (details here). Avery graciously agreed to write a guest post, and also sit down for an interview as well. Those writerly questions will be posted at noon today, so be sure to check back!
So without further ado, here is what Avery believes every writer ought to know. Continue reading “Guest Post: What Every Writer Ought to Know by Avery Olive”
The Royal Treatment by Lindsey Leavitt
Except I knew it wasn’t technological, but technomagical.
The styles then were not particularly masculine, and so it was far from attractive to see Gavin in his ghastly knickers (with BOWS), his chest puffed out as he pranced around the floor.
Staring someone down doesn’t get you understood. It gets you slapped.
Synopsis: Desi’s life is a mess. Her friends have turned on her, her crush can’t remember her name, her job forces her to dress as a giant rodent, and her parents don’t understand her. All Desi wants is to stop feeling invisible and start making an impact, so when a woman arrives in a bubble and offers Desi a job as a substitute princess she jumps at the chance. Okay, she screams first –who wouldn’t?- and then begins her new life of filling in for royals when they need a secret vacation. But who knew being a princess could be so hard?

“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
Having just finished reading Lisa Roger’s recently released novel Angelina’s Secret (review on Friday), I simply had to see if she had written any other books. I found another book, which is presumedly based on the author’s own family living in a haunted house and their experiences with the spirits within. It isn’t being released until May, but at least that isn’t too long! Continue reading “Waiting On Wednesday: On Haunted Ground by Lisa Roger”
Angelina’s Secret by Lisa Rogers
Rule #1: hot guys who break up with their girlfriends without giving them a reason have to change lockers, preferable to another school.
Most children can see past their world, but once they reach a certain age it closes to them. Once in a while someone special comes along –like you.
“Call me crazy, but I believe her… I guess if I don’t watch out, you and Mom will put me right in the mental hospital with her.”
In December I received a wonderful envelope in the mail from Spencer Hill Press containing a book for me to review. I thought I had packed it to take with me to read over the holidays, but couldn’t seem to find it once I arrived at my parents’ place. When I got back to my apartment I looked for the book presuming I must have left it behind, but it didn’t seem to be there either. It was none other than: Continue reading “Book Haul: Angelina’s Secret by Lisa Rogers”
