Interview with Dan Allen, Author of Fall of the Dragon Prince!

Interview with Dan Allen, Author of Fall of the Dragon Prince!

If you didn’t know, I’ve been an intern for Jolly Fish Press since September-ish. One of the first books I helped proofread was Fall of the Dragon Prince by Dan Allen, a great read with romance, action, battle, fantasy, and—of course—dragons. This book was released just last week, and I had the great opportunity to ask Dan Allen some questions about his writing, his life, and his book. Here’s some information on the book!: Now, let’s get into the nitty-gritty of the interview: Author Interview with Dan Allen You are a scientist. what got you started writing fiction? In grad school at UCSB […]

Looking Back: January 2017

Looking Back: January 2017

This is the first time I’ve done a Looking Back post since August. . . . Basically I’ve been the worst blogger ever, and I only post a couple times a month, if that. But I really, really want to be better. So do you forgive me? Okay, good. Anyway, now it’s February, and big things are happening in my life. Big, scary, what-the-heck-am-I-doing-with-my-life things. But let’s get started, shall we? What I… Have Been Trying to Figure Out: If you didn’t know, I’m about to graduate with a BA in English and editing. And so about 77% of my time […]

Ten Underrated Books That You Should Definitely Read

Ten Underrated Books That You Should Definitely Read

We all have those books that we randomly picked up one day, devoured, and then couldn’t stop thinking about. Books that sang to our hearts and spoke to our souls. And if you don’t have those types of books, then I’m so sorry. But I’m going to give you some that have done that for me…so maybe that’ll change for you soon enough. The sad thing about many books is that sometimes they fly under the radar. They don’t become New York Times Bestsellers and they aren’t made into movies or anything like that. But they’re still gems—beautiful, rare, and hard […]

9 Books Becoming TV Shows in 2017

9 Books Becoming TV Shows in 2017

It’s a new year, and with that comes many, many, many new movies and new TV shows that are based on those oh-so cherished things called books. I honestly think it’s so exciting to see how directors and writers interpret what’s on the page and translate it to a visual format. And I’m not one of those people who’s offended if something changes from book to screen; it’s a different format, a different medium, and it only makes sense to me that some things may change as a result. I was going to include a full list of all the book-to-screen adaptations, […]

The Secret Diary of Lydia Bennet: A Mini ARC Review

The Secret Diary of Lydia Bennet: A Mini ARC Review

When I first heard of this book, I wasn’t so sure. The cover definitely isn’t the best thing, and it sounds like a copycat of The Secret Diary of Lydia Bennet from the Youtube Lizzie Bennet Diaries series. But it’s really not. And I’m glad that I read it. It was a pleasant surprise that I really enjoyed. BTW: I’ve seen a better alternate cover and a different title: The Wild Girl of Pride and Prejudice. So I’m not sure which one came first. But here’s the other cover that’s on Goodreads: Definitely that’s better than the one on my copy though. […]
