Author Guest Post: Laura Thomas (The Glass Bottom Boat)

Settings by Laura Thomas As both a reader and a writer, SETTING plays a huge part in any story for me. It’s like an ever-present character—solid and reliable, yet able to hold secrets and tantalize all five senses.

Author Guest Post: Allison Pearl (Frittered Moments)

Author Guest Post: Jeanelle Frontin (The Unmarked Girl)

From Jeanelle… I’ve often wondered why my maiden journey into fantasy was in the Young Adult genre. Yara, my protagonist, enters her not-so-sweet sixteenth year of life haunted by a voice beckoning her to find her true origins. Yara’s an orphan. An outsider. And with her blue hair and iridescent eyes, there isn’t another being […]
