5 Common Writing Mistakes That Make You Look Like an Amateur: There are a couple of common writing mistakes that will instantly peg you as a novice to any agent or editor, but are really easy to fix once you know them.
There is something about becoming a writer that makes being a reader all that much harder. You begin to pick apart plots, change dialog and sometimes, you throw the book out in disgust because it isn't going the way you want it to go.
All the same reasons I became a writer in the first place. But I digress.
The deceiving part of having a Kindle is that you have no reminder of just how big your TBR (To Be Read) Pile is growing until you log on and find them all on your screen. Hubby is happy that there isn't the book piles growing in the house, but that's him.
A couple of months ago (dear me, has it been months?!) I got a copy of SUSAN MALLERY'S WHEN WE MET (2014). It wasn't until the massive heatwave hit Maine this weekend that I took the time to crack it open and I couldn't be happier!
I know that I came into the Fool's Gold books in mid-series, but I can't say enough good things about this book. Not once did I want to throw this book.
