Text 18 Apr White Chalk, Cherry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake & The Prairie Winter

I can smell it cooking, and I know it doesn’t sound like it has much to do with the book, but that Cherry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake I’m making is not only almost the same colour as the book cover, it’s just as tasty as that lollipop in Chelle’s mouth.

Did I actually say that?

I did, but I did it to make a point.

White Chalk has been described as a novel inline with “White Oleander”, “Lolita” and…

Two Moons of Sera: Escaping to another realm of Escapism

Something strange happens when winter drags on forever and the snow never melts, and its April and it snows again. (Only 4cm here, so yeah, I’m just whining.) That funny thing? People get stir crazy, angsty and annoyed.

How do I cope with that? I read, and hermit myself away, and we got a cat.

Cats make everything better.

Meet Bonjour, Yup, that makes her Hello Kitty :P

EVERYTHING.

I also decided it was time to start writing again. Something…

Antiphony: The Cacophony Of the Universe

When I think of the word Antiphony, the things that come to mind have nothing to do with string theory. They do have to do with music theory though. My mind is immediately pulled from Antiphony to polyphony, monophony and probably then homophony. Perhaps, even cacophony. Though if we’re talking about polyphony, it has the potential to be heard as cacophony unless you have a trained ear in…

Skylar Wishes: Triangles, Squares and Stars, Oh My!

It was described as an eloquent paranormal read. The term eloquent doesn’t quite do it justice. This tale of body thieves, love, loss and magic was stirring, passionate and impressive.

I’ve always loved books that are written from different characters perspectives each chapter, and it really made sense to organize this story that way. I found the first chapter not exactly confusing, but it did…

Open Up with Sabrina’s Window

This was a great coming of age story. I’ve been reading a lot lately, and reading fiction about a girl written by a man was intriguing.

Sometimes voice is such a hard thing to master in a story. As an author, you have to research and research, and really flush out those characters. Sometimes your muse has things in common with you, and sometimes he/she doesn’t. I don’t kow what the case was for…

Sign Up for Silence – Silent Words That Is!

I’ve been raving in my head about this book for months. I won a copy in a contest with Evolved Publishing, and now in the way the weird internet world works, have become part of this author and illustrator’s team. I wrote about them here, and will probably write my thoughts down on Goodreads later, with no stars attached of course.
