Uh, er, yeah, I'm slack. As a matter of fact, I'm slack bad! Or bad slack! Whatever way we say it we know what it means. *sigh*

The Halloween Hop started early this morning. *double sigh*

What I wanna know is, what is your most favorite monster movie in the whole wide world?? And what is your most favorite costume in the same whole wide world. Do tell. Please.
My favorite monster movie has to be The Night of the Living Dead. I'm here to tell you that movie scared me so bad. Cool!

Now I write for children so my favorite costume? Tigger, of course. Who else?? He's not scary, but he's awesomely cool. Don'tcha think?

Debut Author Spotlight

Thanks to Christina Lee I joined the debut author spotlight. I am spotlighting Across The Universe, by Beth Revis and With A Name Like Love, by Tess Hilmo.

Drum roll, please!

The top three reasons why I loved Beth's debut novel are:

The characters. Elder and Amy are compelling and intriguing. Well written with a fast pace and short chapters, Beth never let her readers down.

The plot. A spacecraft leaving earth with cryogenically frozen passengers aboard is enough to send shivers up my spine and make me want to read the book (even though I critiqued it in its early stages).

Harley. He is my favorite character. I loved him when I first critiqued the story in 2008. And he never disappointed me. He is an awesomely done character with a sad ending. What's not to love? I cried at his end. He was an artist extraordinaire!

The top three reasons I loved Tess's debut novel are:

The plot. The idea of a traveling preacher and his family swinging into town for a three day revival is all I needed to know. Who wouldn't want to read Tess's charming middle grade novel?

Ollie and Jimmy and the entire book of well drawn characters. Tess is evidently a master of characterization. She  made me feel like I had known these folks all my life.

The town. I can't soon forget this town called Binder. What an awesome mystery and an excellent job of writing.

Thanks to Beth Revis and Tess Hilmo for giving me terrific characters, and an exciting story line. I so enjoyed myself in your worlds.
