Hey guys! 2019 is shaping up to be a pretty big year for me. I’ll keep it short and sweet this week. Here are a few of my goals/plans: The biggest: Release The Secrets They Keep: Guardian Society: Book 1 Get my newsletter up and running. Connect with even more amazing writers and bloggers on Twitter. Continue work on my next project. The outline is started, but this one is a BIG undertaking.
Today’s book review is another indie read: The Savior’s Champion by Jenna Moreci. Jenna is a popular Youtuber in the writing community, shelling out writing advice with a healthy dose of humor and sarcasm. My kinda girl. The Savior’s Champion was released a couple months ago, and I was super excited to read it, having devoured the first few chapters before it was released. Here’s the official summary: Tobias Kaya doesn’t care about The Savior.
Full Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for honest feedback. In fact, M.N. Seeley was adamant I not sugar coat my review :) First things first, this book is NOT my typical genre, but it’s a self-published book with an intriguing plot. As you may know, one of my goals this year is to support more self-published authors by reading more indie! This book is a literary suspense, heavy on the literary style!
tldr version: This is a great book, excellent start to the series. I highly recommend Heist Society to anyone who enjoys YA contemporary Adventure books (pssst: That’s a similar genre to The Guardians of Enlightenment!) I read this book because it was listed on my Goodreads recommended reads. I’m so glad that it was! Heist society follows 15 year-old Katrina Bishop (Kat) on a mission to clear her father’s name, not with the police, with someone far worse.
Goals 2018 This year I am aiming to create and complete my goals on a quarterly basis. For the first quarter, these are my writing goals: Continue frequent posts on twitter including #thurstale (check me out on twitter). Do at least 2 book reviews for the blog (preference going to self-published authors). Keep up with weekly blog posts. Send frequent chapters to my Critique Partners (CP), and keep my return rate prompt.
