Review: How to Keep Rolling After a Fall by Karol Cozzo

Review: How to Keep Rolling After a Fall by Karol Cozzo

  My Review I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion. My, my, this was a sneaky little book. When I read the synopsis, I was expecting to laugh, swoon, and maybe even cry a little bit. And while I did do all of those things, I didn’t do them for the reasons I expected.   Cyber bullying is a big deal. There is simply so excuse…

Review: The sowing by K. Makansi

Review I received a free copy of this book thanks to the author via Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This book started out with a bang, but then it leveled out for a while and spent a lot of time on back story so it took me a minute  to get into it. But I’m glad I stuck with it because this story ended up being well written and action packed.   This is the same…

Review: Sanctuary by Pauline Creeden

Review: Sanctuary by Pauline Creeden

Review I received a free copy for this book from the author via YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This book was a mixture of quite a few genres. There was a Science Fiction, Horror, and a hint if inspirational/Christian Fiction. I never would have thought that these things would blend well together, but somehow, they did. The story is told from the point of views of three different characters. Jennie is a 19-year old college sophomore,…

Did you allow your students to read your book before it was published, and if so what were their reactions? You know, no student knows this exists.  I…

Interview 1. How do you come up with the ideas for your books?  Honestly, it varies. Sometimes I come up with the plot first; sometimes it’s a character speaking to me, and sometimes it’s a scene. REAPER was a what if question: What if Miss Popular suddenly learned she would become a grim reaper? For “The 13th Month”, I was given the theme of ONE MORE DAY. The story really developed out of the character and his reaction to the theme….

Interview  1.What inspired you to write Jump Start my Heart? A while back I was reading a Goodreads post about One Direction, and I saw how passionate the fans are and how there really isn’t any boy band romance in YA for them. So I decided to fix the problem lol.   2. When did you know that you wanted to be an author? I knew I wanted to be an author after I read The Mortal Instruments and The…

Interview When did you know that you wanted to be an author? First off, I want to take this opportunity to thank Krystle and Kookie Krysp Reads for taking the time to talk to me! I can’t say there was a specific moment when I knew I wanted to be an author. I’ve always enjoyed reading and writing little stories when I was younger. I actually got the idea for The Lost Heir when I was in college and began…
