Hello kind strangers!
I have made an official PayPal account and can now accept any donations you may feel inspired to gift. I will not beg, I will not grovel, but I will humbly ask for your help and support if you find yourself in a place that ables or inspires you to do so. I am a recent college graduate and while I do have a job my student loans are burdensome (I’m sure many can relate). I enjoy writing this book blog while I simultaneously pursue my dream of becoming a published author, a film director, and/or an actress (hey, the world said we could be anything we want and I guess I took it seriously as a kid). Art is my passion but art does not pay the bills (despite it being beloved and utilized by all. Could you imagine a world with no music, movies, books, dance, etc.??). Anyway, this is one simple way in which I am trying to pay off tuition fees and I would be so humbled and moved by any who feel that they would like to contribute. 100% of all donations will go directly towards paying off my college student loans. Thank you very much to all of you who frequent my blog, to all of you who choose to donate, and to all of you who wish you could but perhaps are not in a place that allows you to do so. This world is crazy and we’re all just trying to wade our way through (: Thanks for becoming a part of my journey.

Just a heads up that I’ll be going radio-silent for almost three weeks. I will be serving on a mission trip in Korea (South, not North lol) to work with kids and will be unable to connect with you. So if you email me, tag me, or comment on a post, please don’t think I’m ignoring you! I will respond as soon as I can upon my return. But also, I admit that even if I did have internet access I would still be choosing to drop off the grid for those three weeks because if I’m distracted by the internet and work then I can’t be wholly focused on the present and the people around me.
I’m sorry to be dropping off the grid but this is important to me. I look forward to hearing from you all and (if you’re also a blogger) catching up on all your wonderful posts that I’ve missed.

I am so excited that ROSEBLOOD by A.G. Howard releases today and that I get to help share the news!
If you haven’t heard about this epic book by A.G. Howard, be sure to check out all the details below. I’m a massive fan of The Phantom of the Opera musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber so of course when this book popped up on my radar I was beyond excited to read it (seriously, just say the word and I’ll sing the whole musical for you including the instrumentals). Howard gives this story plenty of unique twists that I think are going to be absolutely incredible.

Congrats everyone! We are halfway through November! I hope you’ve been joining in with the NaNoWriMo challenge this year and even if you haven’t it’s still not too late to join! Always remember that this is for fun, okay? NaNoWriMo challenges all of us writers to complete a project or try to reach 50,000 words by the end of November, but even if you don’t quite reach your goal it’s honestly the attempt that counts…

But once he was just a young man who dreamed of leaving his rigid life behind to chase adventure in faraway lands. Nothing could stop him—until he met the one girl who would change everything…” -via Goodreads
Nicole was such a lovely lady and so much fun to chat with!…We both talked a lot about how we love character development and how intriguing it is to read the journey of how a character becomes who they are…Who was Blackbeard before he was the fearsome pirate?…

Interview with Lena Coakley!
An interview between pooled ink blogger Angela Jones-Cuéllar and author Lena Coakley on her new novel THE WORLDS OF INK AND SHADOW (released on January 5, 2016)
Q1: Worlds of Ink and Shadow is a book written in beautiful prose that weaves together magic and fantasy with an almost biographical look into the Brontë siblings. How did this idea come to you to fuse these ideas into a historical fantasy?
A: Thank you! Because the novels of the adult Brontës are almost entirely realistic, I was very surprised to learn that there were so many…

I’m pretty excited to announce that I’m officially an Amazon.com Associate! Hooray!
…okay but what does that mean?
Well I’ll tell ya. It means that whenever you purchase an item from Amazon.com using one of my special links I get a few pennies tossed my way. Using my links does NOT cost you anything at all! It simply notifies Amazon.com that you were referred to their site by me and as a thank you they give me a tiny percentage of any sales made by someone using my links.
