In the 2nd episode of "T&E Theatre Factory" we discuss the 2018 Tony Awards, Ain't Misbehavin' at Theatre By the Sea, and introduce our dumb gecko, Davey. (j/k, we love you, Davey!)
Let this book go down in history as the one that made me decide to stop trying to find comp titles for the first novel in my series. WARNING: Long and ranty and full of spoilers! Where to begin. Girl Through Glass, by Sari Wilson, is one of the few books that's ever made me … Continue reading Book Review – “Girl Through Glass”
Hello readers! Welcome to my latest, non-writing endeavor - podcasting! My husband and I have decided to start a show about all of the theatre we see, so if you're into that, take a listen and let us know what you think. Links to relevant stuff from the first episode are in the T&E TF … Continue reading T&E Theatre Factory – Episode 1
Seriously. After the last book I tried reading as a potential comp for my own writing bombed (enough that I DNF and I *never* DNF), I decided to take a break from the others. I read some memoirs and a giant book of theatre reviews from the NYT, but before jumping into anything else huge … Continue reading About to Give Up on Comp Titles
Hi all! Truth: I would love to be writing a self-pitying entry right now about a lot of writing related things. I am so super thrilled for the now many, many writers I've gotten to known on Twitter who have recently gotten an agent/book deal/mentor/you name it, but at the same time, I'd be lying … Continue reading My Editing Process
Hi everyone! No real entry today. Instead, I wanted to provide you with a link to my first piece as a reviewer for BroadwayWorld's Rhode Island page: Riveting GOD OF VENGEANCE at Head Trick Theatre My next reviews won't be until the end of April/early May, but I'm looking forward to them. Other than my … Continue reading My First Review for BroadwayWorld
Tossing aside a book is not a thing I take lightly. To this point, there have only been three books I did not finish for one reason or another: She's Come Undone - Wally Lamb Uggghhhhh. I remember kind of wanting bad things to happen to the main character (Dolores?) just because she came across … Continue reading And the Fourth DNF of my Life Is. . .
Hey everyone! Sorry for the gap in regular entries - I'm busily editing Book One (it's funny that there's at least 3 past entries making it sound like I've finished editing this book, and I had, but this is the final, final round of edits before querying, so kind of a bigger deal!), preparing for … Continue reading BroadwayWorld Announcement!
You know, compared to the classic tomes and presidential biographies I normally read in any given year, the novels on my current #TBRlist are a freaking BREEZE. That's probably why it's not even March and I've already crossed three off my list! So. Today's review is of "The Cranes Dance: A Novel" by Meg Howrey, … Continue reading Review: “The Cranes Dance”
I'll admit that after getting off to a rocky start with this year's TBR list (see previous review for "White Swan, Black Swan"), I was a little leery about diving into my second book, Christopher Bram's "Lives of the Circus Animals." Thankfully, that fear was unfounded and I would give this read a solid 4.5 … Continue reading Book Review – “Lives of the Circus Animals”
