Happy Happy Friday!

This week was a very productive one for me. I finished up a great book earlier this week (the one in the sidebar) and picked up some awesome ones!  I’m also in deep into my rewrites for my novel Damaris as well as getting the Visual Adjectives Blog off the ground!  Yes, it was a good week!

This week’s question:
Who are your favorite authors?
 
Some of my favorite authors include VC Andrews, John Saul, George Orwell, Madeline L’Engle, R. L Stine and Pittacus Lore.  I’m sure this list will continue to grow as I continue reading and discovering new authors!

OMG – Friday couldn’t come fast enough!  This week has been such a madhouse between my day job and managing the social media for the up and coming self publishing company Visual Adjectives.  I’ve also been schooling myself on the writing biz by listening to some great podcasts (which I promise to post about next week so hold tight!)

This week’s question:
What are you currently reading? Basically, what book is that?
Well I just finished Punish the Sinners by John Saul this week (which was wicked awesome and I promise to review it!)  So now I’m reading the Lord Protector’s Daughter by L.E Modesitt.  I’ve haven’t read anything from this author before but I’m a few pages in and I’m already intrigued by the setting descriptions alone.  So I’m enjoying it so far!
Here’s some info about the book, courtesy of Goodreads!
The Lord-Protector's Daughter (Corean Chronicles)

The Lord-Protector’s Daughter is a standalone fantasy novel that takes place in Tempre, the capital city of Lanachrona on Corus, the world of Modesitt’s Corean Chronicles. Mykella, the eldest daughter of the Lord-Protector of Lanachrona, discovers that someone is diverting significant sums of money from her father’s treasury. One of the ancient soarers appears to Mykella, telling her that she must go to the antique stone Table in the cellars of the Palace and find her Talent in order to save her land and her world.
From there, matters become more perilous. There are attempts to remove Mykella and her sisters from Tempre by marrying them off to lords in neighboring lands, and fatal and near fatal accidents occur to members of her family and trusted retainers. While Mykella develops a solid idea of who stands behind it all, every attempted solution is used to discredit her. How can she save their father and land?

Have any of you guys read it? Am I in for a treat?

Happy Friday!!  I’m so glad it is because I have a few movies I want to see this weekend (Like the Prince of Persia) as well as some reading, organizing, and editing that is so hard to do during the week when you have a day job!

This week’s question:

What is your reading suggestion this week?

Because I’m a writer and I’m getting  into books that surround the genre I write in, I think it’s refreshing to read a book that isn’t.  So my reading suggestion this week just happens to be the book I’m currently reading by John Saul called Punish the Sinners.  The prologue alone was pretty scary and if you’re into books that explore the scary side of religion, this a great pick for you!

I’m in great need of book suggestions, so what are your picks?

This week’s question:
How many reviews do you like to do each week?
 
My blog is super new and I just came out of my writer’s cocoon with the completion of the first novel draft (which still needs editing!).  On top of that I play my alter ego, with her own blog that has it’s review, plus a full time job!  Sooo with all that said, I would be happy if I could squeeze in one a week.  A busy girl has to be realistic, right?
For those of you with much more time than me, how many book reviews would you like to do in a week?
