Goodreads Summary:

Love on Main is an anthology of 10 short stories which explore the many ways love can be lost and found. The characters range from high school teens to business-owning adults, some finding first loves, others recovering from previous relationships. No two stories are the same, but all come to a similar conclusion: with two people falling in love on Main Street.

My Review:

This was such a wonderful, romantic contemporary collection! It was exactly what I needed! It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day read, or any time really!

I enjoyed all the stories! And these were a few of the stories that stood out to me!

Chasing the Story by C. Vonzale Lewis was awesome! I loved the characters connection so much, their banter, and also the mystery of the story! A true page turner!

Intertextual Relations by Brandy Woods Snow was so freaking adorable! It was like You’ve Got Mail but with texting and at a dance! Loved the dialogue!

The Storm of the Decade by Prerna Pickett was excellent! I love a good storm and Ollie was seriously the best! Can I keep him?

Star-Crossed Lovers and Other Strangers by Deborah Maroulis was a touching and lovely read! The characters were on point!

Jane & Austen’s by Jess Moore was like a modern day Jane Austen story! And I seriously love second chance romances!

Seriously check out this amazing and super cute read!

Women Meditation and Power

Women Meditation

Congratulations to Liz Lewinson on the release of the latest edition of Women Meditation and Power!

38247527Women, Meditation, and Power

Genre: Non-Fiction/ Women’s Studies

Publication Date: January 7, 2020 (New Edition)

Women are the power species on the planet. Why? Because life force or kundalini flows through women more strongly than in men. The primary aspect of the female person is power. The primary aspect of the male person is love and humility. Somewhere back in time, the roles got switched.

Men in charge have unwittingly created a heavy, inflexible power structure that lurches towards destruction. Now is the time for the woman in all of us to up-end the confusion, unravel the deep-rooted lines of misunderstanding, and make it right.

Review: Corpse & Crown

Title: Corpse & Crown

Author: Alisa Kwitney

Date of Publication: February 1st, 2019

CBECEFC6-6E6D-4888-B6DF-1684FEDD019B

Goodreads Summary:

From Alisa Kwitney comes a connected novel set in the same alternative Victorian England of Cadaver & Queen. Corpse & Crown follows the story of Agatha DeLacey, an Ingold nursing student who travels to London and uncovers a devastating secret about the country’s Bio-Mechanicals. Inspired by the classic story of Oliver Twist and complete with a dashing Artful Dodger-inspired male lead, this retelling is a satisfying follow-up to Kwitney’s clever and critically acclaimed young adult debut.

My Review:

This was a super fun companion! I love the whole Frankenstein concept, and this one added in Oliver Twist inspiration!

I wasn’t so sure if I was going to like Aggie based on the last book, but I loved her! And Dodger! The cute romance between them was adorable! And oh my heart, Will! I really enjoyed reading his chapters, too!

The historical fantasy stuff was just so cool here with the biochemical people! I seriously need to read more from this author, and I’d love even more from this world!

Tell us a little about your Kingdom of Runes series. What inspired you to write it?

The Kingdom of Runes saga first started as a gender swap Beauty and the Beast retelling with all the focus on the male Bell’s friend who saves him. From there it just grew until it became its own thing entirely.

Do you have a favorite book you’ve written and why?

That’s such a tough question! I think my favorite book would be Curse Breaker, book two in the Kingdom of Runes series. For me, that book was the most challenging to write because there were so many pieces I had to fit together to make the ending work. But I love the story arc, how the team gelled together despite their many differences to fight for what they believe in.

If you were stranded on an island, which character of yours would you take with you?

Um, I would absolutely, without a doubt take Stolas with me on an Island. Not only is he nice to look at, but his dark sarcasm makes me laugh. Plus he has wings so he could fly us to safety.

Can you tell us a little about Winter from your Evermore Academy? The cover is seriously so pretty!

I had so much fun writing book one of Evermore Academy! The story was in my head for a while but I wasn’t sure about writing an academy book since I hadn’t read many. When I talked about it to my PA, she laughed and said, “If you do an academy book, I want to see all the tropes thrown in.” She was kidding, but I definitely had a good time mixing tropes and making the book incredibly humorous, while keeping the dark elements my readers expect.

What made you decide to become a writer?

To be honest,  I’ve wanted to be an author since I was four or five. I did wait until after I received two degrees and had my first child before I started seriously pursuing publishing, but I regret not starting sooner.

Are you a plotter or a pantser?

Definitely a pantser! Sometimes out of desperation I’ll jot down a page of plot points, but I work better letting the story flow naturally.

What’s your favorite color and why?

I’ve always loved green. The color soothes me, plus green reminds me of nature.

What is a favorite book that you’ve read this year?

My favorite book is probably Queen of Nothing by Holly Black, but Laura Thalassa’s Pestilence is a close second, along with Feather by Olivia Wildenstein.

What do you find to be the hardest thing about writing?

Probably the not knowing. Because I don’t plot, I have no idea how the book will turn out. That’s a bit terrifying. I’ve slowly learned to trust that I’ll make the story as epic as it is inside my head, but I still always somewhat doubt myself until my PA, who reads all my books first, tells me it’s good.

Do you have any advice for other writers?

The most important thing I would tell other writers is to keep writing. I can’t tell you how many successful authors I know that almost quit before becoming successful. Being an author will always be hard; that’s the nature of the business. But I truly believe that, if you study the craft and the market and continue improving, you’ll find success doing what you love.
