Author Interview: Megan Crewe

Megan was awesome enough to answer a few questions for me after I read her amazing book Give Up the Ghost. Read my review if you haven't already. Would you mind sharing a little bit about yourself and how you became a writer? I've always loved stories. My parents are both avid readers and read to me every night, and I couldn't wait to be able to read books to myself, too. I started making up my own stories when I was very young as well. Some of them I wrote down, and some of them I acted out with […]

Author’s Corner w/ Emily Gipson

Today I am very happy to welcome author, Emily Gibson into Author's Corner. Emily is the upcoming novel, Cloven. Tell us about Cloven: Graves Parish is a young adult fantasy series centering around a group of teenagers living in the fictional town of Graves Parish, Louisiana. Cloven is the first book in the series. I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to talk about Cloven without giving too much of the story away, which oddly is proving to be more difficult than actually writing the book. So much of the first book is about the main characters – […]

Book Review: Defining Twilight

Defining Twilight by Brian Leaf I know that there has been a bit of surprise when this book came out. But I have to be honest, I was very much intrigued by a prep book based on Twilight. Looking through this book, I’ve found that Twilight offered some interesting vocabulary words, ones that readers probably overlooked, pushed aside, or simply ignored. I love the way the book is set up. You try to define the words first on your own – the page numbers for where it is found in the book are provided. The words are then defined and […]
