Holiday Indie Book SALE Blog Hop

I love a book sale, book sales are good!
(feel free to not understand that terrible reference)

Well, I know  I haven't been one for posting recently. My ability to write coherently has waxed and waned over the past 6 months. BUT! I've got something special for my lovely blog friends. A paperback book sale! My dear friend Grace Pennington and I put it together over the last couple of weeks, and we were excited for it to hit the streets.

Now of course, I'm a lame brain and never got around to posting this on the actual start of the sale, but fret not, for there are still 3 days to empty your wallets for these fabulous indie authors!
Made by yours truly. The color is a little darker in real life.

Also, we have a special giveaway running through Friday the 6th. There are three nerdy goodie packs, including shiny-fancy notebooks, trinkets, and a hand-knitted bow tie!

Okay, I think I've made enough nerd references for this post, don't you? Time to stuff your stockings with these fabulous books.

so far

The Book Chewer's link-up is a ton of fun, and it's given me an idea. Wouldn't it be cool to do an A-Z series on your favorite books? I must remember to try that some time.

Happy Mid-July

 Ah, the Quill is back! Now in 2D with a fresh new url. ;-)

 Here we are, in July. In the past couple of weeks I've started two college courses and joined a writing critique group that is run by one of my best friends. I guess you could say that I'm busy, as I never seem to have the time to fit in anything new.

 The cool thing about my critique group is that our motto is "No Fear" and there are only three other members besides myself. It's not that hard to share my precious work with people I know well. The uncool thing is that it forces me to stop being lazy about writing and complete 2 short stories a week. If you know anything about me, I'm just happy to finish one chapter in a WIP per week. So.

Also, here is an example of my atrocious editing skills for your enjoyment. Its a collage of the funniest moments from season 7 of Doctor Who. I'm going to make a better one soon.
