Interview with Jane Alvey Harris

1. What inspired you to create Riven and the My Myth Trilogy series?

Honestly, when I began writing Riven, I was just looking for relief. I was struggling through a really dark time in my life and was doing therapy with an amazing counselor who encouraged me to write. I didn’t have a synopsis or even an outline; I was just writing scenes from my head and connecting them together. It took me a couple years to get the first draft out and even longer to realize what the story was really about.

Somewhere in the middle of undoing myself in therapy, the narrative in my writing transformed. It matured from a pretty fairytale to a hard-hitting, issue-driven documentation of a survivor’s journey to make peace with her wounded egos and achieve self-acceptance. …

Interview and Giveaway with Author Teri Polen

Let me welcome Author Teri Polen for an interview.

I read her book Sarah which I got from NetGalley and let me tell you it was actually a really good read. If you click on the link you can read my review. What truly pulled me to requesting the book was the
cover. I know, I know, you should never just get a book by its cover but you know sometimes the cover catches your eye and you just have to read it.
I was very happy and surprised to have the author contact me. I think in all my requesting from
NetGalley I have had maybe two authors contact me.
So I jumped on the chance to interview Mrs. Polen.
Check out her interview and enter into the giveaway that she was kind enough to do.
Below is the blurb for the book with where you can purchase the book from amazon, also add it to your TBR shelves on Goodreads.

Review: Puck by Kim Askew and Amy Helmes

Title: Puck Authors: Kim Askew and Amy Helmes
Published: Nov. 15, 2016
Publisher: Doublet Press
Pages: 330 (print)
Genre: Young Adult
Review: ebook provided by authors

Life isn’t always fair, and no one knows that better than fifteen-year-old Puck. When she’s unceremoniously booted from yet another foster home, this city kid lands at DreamRoads, a rehabilitation wilderness camp for juvies. Her fellow campers include a famous pop star with a diva attitude, a geeky, “fish out of water” math whiz, and a surly gang-banger with a chip on his shoulder. The program’s steely director aims to break Puck, but she knows that every adult has a breaking point, too. Determined to defy this realm of agonizing nature hikes and soul-sucking psychobabble — even if that means manipulating four lovestruck camp counselors and the director’s dim-witted second-in-command — Puck ultimately gets much more than she bargains for in this “wondrous strange” outdoor odyssey inspired b…
