Posted by Wodke Hawkinson on Wednesday, September 26, 2012, In : Guest Posts 

When I was a kid, I could not wait to get my hands on the latest book or book series. I was always devouring whatever books my school library had to offer. If I found a book or book series I loved, I would insist that my parents buy it for me. I would read and reread my favorites, always discovering new worlds and new adventures in the pages of my books. I want to share my love of reading with children, and so I thought I could give you some ideas of books that were my favorites as a chil...

Why Self-Publish? (Or, Why I’m Too Impatient), A Guest Post by Miranda Stork

Posted by Wodke Hawkinson on Monday, September 3, 2012, In : Guest Posts 

Okay, so I’m not that bad…no really! I didn’t actually think it would be easier to self-publish. Because in fact I know it’s very, very hard. A few years ago I worked for Stag Editors in New York as a proof-reader and editor, and believe it or not, some of our clients were indie authors. So I not only got to see the plethora of talent available in indie books, but also saw a lot of the mistakes.

When I first wrote Conner, I was only eighteen. It was a great achievement for me, an...

Posted by Wodke Hawkinson on Monday, September 3, 2012,

Posted by Wodke Hawkinson on Sunday, September 2, 2012, In : Guest Posts 


If you are looking for a good historical romance to read on your Kindle then look no further! When I first got my new Kindle, I was on the search for free books to download. After all, I did not want to have to shell out more money so soon! I ran across Loki’s Daughters by Delle Jacobs and fell in love. I have read it at least three times since then and enjoyed it more every time.

Loki’s Daughters is about the struggle of a group of Celtic women left to fend for themselves when every f...
