I absolutely love reading and responding to all of your comments and I enjoy reading the blogs of those of you who have your own! I originally started this blog just for myself. I had just graduated from college, I had no job, no friends, and was at a complete loss for what to do with myself. Well, I could never have predicted how fantastic it is to be a book blogger and it’s all because of you. The book blog community is a large but warm one and I am so glad I stumbled into it. Please have a relaxing, fun, and rejuvenating Christmas and I hope 2018 will be even better.

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.

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…

…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.
