The Author Collector by Teddi Deppner

The Author Collector by Teddi Deppner

I love really thought-provoking short stories. Bonus points if there’s a creep factor. Think Ray Bradbury or “The Lottery. Teddi Deppner’s The Author Collector doesn’t disappoint. Andy is an author, a not terribly successful one. He has a wife and young son he needs to support. Knowing that being a writer isn’t going to cut it if […]

Review: Reclaiming Shilo Snow

Review: Reclaiming Shilo Snow

  Mary Weber just released Reclaiming Shilo Snow, the sequel The Evaporation of Sofi Snow. One thing I loved about these books are that they’re a duology. It’s a trend I’m excited about.

Jessi L. Roberts What is your alter ego? Student, parent, day job, etc. or are you a full-time writer? I […]

Books I Read 2016

Books I Read 2016

  This was the year of series conclusions. I started 2016 reading the final book in Marissa Meyer’s The Lunar Chronicles, Winter. While the character Winter’s story didn’t engage me like Cinder or Cress’s, overall the book was really good with vivid descriptions and fast-paced action. But some were more personal.
