Blog crush

Oh my gosh, can this woman be my best friend? Too bad (for me) that she's moving to Austin.

My extracurricular activities are also literary

Here's a little plug for my upcoming performance as "Beth" in "Little Women: The Musical"--on the off chance that any of you reading this are close enough to come.

Your February must-read

Looking for a trenchant, imaginative, beautifully written novel to read this month? Look no further: it's The Scourge, by A. G. Henley

Both Stephanie and I worked on this novel, and when the author said she had no formal writing experience, I almost couldn’t believe it—this definitely does not read like a first novel, this reads like the work of a talented, long-published author. Her use of language is beautiful, the world she's created so detailed and fascinating and consistent, and the personal story of protagonist Fenn is just wonderful. I love all the characters—especially the star-crossed lovers at the heart of this dystopian YA (though definitely ageless) novel.

Honestly, when a manuscript is this strong, what I end up having to do is nitpick in the hopes of helping an author make it even more perfect. Now it is ready for all readers to enjoy, so don't wait--download it now!

Congratulations, Aimee!
