Authors & Aspiring Writers: Why Proper Editing Matters - A Rant

Bookwyrming Thoughts Discussion
I support indie authors. I really do. In fact, most of the books I've read since starting Bookwyrming Thoughts? They're indie books. I personally think that there are some indie books out there that deserve to be read. In fact, there are probably 3 types: the ones who deserve to be on the bookshelves of Walmart or Barnes & Noble or Target, the ones who deserve to be on those bookshelves but need some tweaking, and then the ones who absolutely do not deserve to be anywhere but on the hard drive of a computer.

Chibi Views: The Grimm Diaries Prequels 7-10 by Cameron Jace

I'm introducing a new feature – it's called Chibi Views! Essentially Chibi Views are my versions of mini reviews. How did the name come about? Chibi are found in Japanese manga, and they're absolutely adorable. Plus, they're short and have big heads. Mini reviews – short. Big Opinions (reviews do count as opinions) – big heads. Get my mojo? ;)

Tutorial: Customizing the Spoiler Button on Blogger

Bookwyrming Thoughts Tutorial
I've recently started using spoilers here on the blog - in fact, my review queue uses this too! - and I have to say it lifts a nice burden from my shoulders of having to find a way to rephrase things because I may be giving a TAD bit too much away - I usually don't but give warning if I do. You may have noticed that they're a darkish blue and work just like a link... without leading you anywhere.

Review: Remembrance by Michelle Madow

Remembrance by Michelle Madow

Transcend Time Saga #1
Michelle Madow
Publication Date: July 25, 2011
Publisher: Dreamscape Publishing

Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from 1815, England ... but she doesn't realize it until she meets her soul mate from the past and he triggers her memories to gradually return.

When Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie's high school, she feels a connection to him, like she knows him. But he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching Drew is more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has become full of himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his arrival. So why can't she get him out of her mind?

Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, but fighting fate isn’t easy, and she’s determined to unravel the mysteries of the past.

I mentioned in my Secret Diamond Sisters review that while I may not have liked The Secret Diamond Sisters – to be honest, contemporaries, romances and realistic fiction are either a hit or a miss for me – I would most likely like Michelle's other series, Remembrance.
