Review + Giveaway: Pasadena by Sherri L. Smith

  Stay tuned at the bottom for a giveaway of a finished copy of Pasadena! There are very few authors that have the kind of versatility Sherri L. Smith does.

There was Orleans, which was a young adult post-apocalyptic, The Toymaker’s Apprentice, which was a middle grade retelling of The Nutcracker, and this–Pasadena, which was a contemporary young adult mystery about a teen girl who is found dead in her swimming pool. more »

The Left Handed Fate: Playlist + Giveaway

  Today is our stop on The Left-Handed Fate blog tour! I get to put a playlist together for the book, and the way I have done it is different than I have done it in the past. I’ve chosen to score the book as if it were a film using classical music, some from films that already exist, and some from my favorite composers. If you know me, you know I love classical music and I listen to it ALL. THE. TIME. Especially when I’m editing, but it also really helps with my anxiety. That ended up working out, more »

Blog Tour: My Best Friend’s Exorcism

I love Quirk Books. I really do. They publish some of the most unique books I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. Though not everything has been my favorite, I so appreciate how different they are as a publisher. They take risks, and they’re doing what no other publisher is doing. So when they asked me to be part of a blog tour, of course I was going to say yes. I’ll do whatever I can to make them visible and to get their books out there where our blog readers can see them! We have Grady Hendrix on the more »
