Well, folks. It was fun while it lasted.

As you can see, not much has been happening on this blog lately.

There are several reasons for this, but I will only hit on a couple:

First: It's amazing how much can change in a couple of months--both in our personal lives and on the writing front. A couple of us have signed publishing contracts, and so the need to write, edit, market, promote HAD to take preference over this blog and the services we were providing.

Second: Running this blog, critiquing submissions, providing feedback...well, that's a LOT of dang work. We weren't getting paid for this service. We had a concept and we went with it--for free--not realizing how much time it would involve with very little (nothing) in return for our effort.

Third: Probably the biggest factor that made us come to this decision, was the fact that a good portion of the submissions we received just weren't ready. They needed more revision. We were wanting to give out reviews on AMAZING, fully complete, well edited novels. 90% of what we received didn't come close.

So we've shut it down. We've moved on.

a.k.a The Reluctant Hook'er

Yep, I'm a writer. I am. I write contemporary YA fiction. Though my current work in progress is a little more zombie encompassing than the norm.

I had an agent once. But she decided to quit the biz. Sucks for me. So now I'm querying again while working on my latest work in progress, Wanted: Dead or Undead, a western romance with zombie flair. It's a must read. Of that, I'm quite certain.  

Check out my website: Whimsy, Writing & Reading for more about me, my writing journey, and my zombie western romance. 

I love to read anything. I'm up for the challenge, though I do tend to lean more contemporary, which is funny coming from a zombie writer. I'm in two different book clubs and so I'm exposed to works that I wouldn't have normally picked (and love it).So this will be fun.

My Bucket List (things to do before I kick it):
1) See New York (done)
2) Go to a foreign country, not Canada or Mexico they don't count.  
3) Go to the chocolate spa in Hersey Pennsylvania and be dipped in chocolate.
4) Go on a cruise (may happen next year)
5) Get a passport
6) Publish a dang book.

My writing motto: "I will not fail, because I won't give up until I succeed. If I don't succeed, that only means I died too soon."

We seem to be having some technical difficulties with commenting. Hopefully, it is just an issue with blogger and it'll be easier in the future. Sorry for the trouble.
