Book Review + Giveaway: Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye

My own personal history with NaNoWriMo has followed a similar path of my reading history: Shaky at first, but eventually, leading to self discovery and a few nervous breakdowns. The first year I participated in 2012, I went in, full of energy and excitement, only to abandon my WIP just four days more »

Check it out below (I don’t know about you guys, but this kinda sounds like a me book and I think I’ll be looking forward to it!):   I may not be a fan of heights, but I especially hate ladders. I always think the rung I’m on is going to break away and send me plummeting. So climbing the water tower ladder more »
