My Thoughts
First of all I liked that it was not too long because I’m super busy very often but I still want to read but if the book is too long I kind of keep putting it off.  The genre is fantasy and the plot, characters and writing is all really great!
I also really enjoyed the plot of the book and I don’t want to give anything away so I’ll keep it short and simple. The plot is really fun and exciting and moves really fast which I love.
I also really liked the characters- they were fun, unique and a bit crazy (in a good way). I liked The Rat character because it was colorful and exciting and rebellious.
The story was definitely exciting and keeps you wanting to read more. It definitely is super well written and the descriptions were also really imaginative and fun to read.
If like me you want to read but not something that’s too long this is absolutely perfect for you. Especially if you’re a fan of the fantasy genre.

Life Story

Erin was born in Kansas City, Missouri and later moved to the small town of El Dorado Springs (That’s El
Do-RAY-Do), Missouri where she spent most of her life.
In 2007 she moved to Fredericksburg, Virginia and graduated from Germanna Community College with honors. If that wasn’t enough… she decided to enroll in courses at Mary Washington University and earned a Bachelor’s in English, Linguistics, and Communications in 2015.

Writing

From there, she published her first novel “Synchronicity” and only lost a small portion of hair from stress.
In 2017, she published the sequel, “Menoetius”, and in 2018 she became fed up with a teeny-tiny copyright incident and collaborated with other authors from the writing community to compile a multi-
genre anthology entitled “Cocky-Tales”. She is currently working on “Forbidden” to be published this winter.

Erin’s writing has placed in a variety of competitions including second place in the Sudden Denouement
Divergent Literature Competition and the CN International Flash Fiction Competition, and most recently,
her piece “The Final Battle” placed first in her heat in round one of the 2018 NYC Midnight Short Story
Competition.

In 2017, Erin was invited to sit on not only the Horror/Sci-Fi/Fantasy writer’s panel at the Fredericksburg
Independent Book Festival, she also sat on the YA panel. In February 2018, she joined the judging panel
for the CN International Pens of Roses Flash Fiction Competition and in March, joined another author
panel in Richmond, Virginia.

Erin works as an editor at FunDead Publications and offers free-lance editing on the side.

Film/TV

Think you’ve seen Erin on TV? You betcha!
Erin got her start as a contestant on Netflix’;s hot new baking show, “NailedIt!”. Following that experience,
she can be found on a variety of Investigate Discovery shows including “Unmasked” and “Dead of Night”.
Erin’s also worked on a couple of independent films due out next year.

When She Walked Away

As a survivor of domestic violence, Erin strives to give back to the community that offered her the support
and encouragement to not only leave her situation but to find her voice. This is what led to the founding of When She Walked Away. A small, but steadily growing community that places direct emphasis on
providing encouragement, information, and support to women and children who have experienced or are
experiencing domestic violence.

Happy Birthday, Jane Austen!

Happy Birthday to one of my favourite writers!

Kathy Cherry Books

Jane Austen was born on December 16, 1775 in England.  She authored six books and these books continue to be revered today. Her books include Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion, Northanger Abbey, and Mansfield Park.

Jane’s father encouraged her writing back then and even bought her expensive paper and pencils even when the family needed the extra money. She used her father’s library frequently by reading lots of books.

I distinctly remember reading Pride and Prejudice many, many years ago. I loved that book! I dreamt about meeting my own Mr. Darcy some day. But, I also remember Jane’s great sense of wit and wisdom in her writing throughout her novels.

Enjoy a few quotes from Jane Austen’s works:

“It isn’t what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.”
Sense and Sensibility

“I declare after all…

Six Things You Should Never Say To A Blogger

Life with Spina Bifida

Things you should never say to a blogger (4)

When most people visit a blog unless they are bloggers themselves they will never truly understand the amount of work it takes to build a successful blog. For that reason, bloggers work often times are underappreciated because most people think we whip blog posts up in five minutes. It is our job to make blogging look easy and although it may look like we whipped these posts up in five minutes I assure you we did not and it probably took way longer than it appears. Saying comments like blogging is not that hard can come off as rude or insensitive and can really hurt someone’s feelings. Want to show a blogger you appreciate what they do? It is really simple avoid saying these things and you are on the right path to showing your favorite blogger your appreciation without even trying.

You’ll never make money– A very small…

Writer Survival 101 (Guest Post)

By Lisa Reynolds

The life of a writer is one of hard work and trying to get your work noticed. In such a highly populated field so many works are passed over simply because readers can only read so much at any given time. But if you keep going, you never know what is around the corner. So this article is not so much about how to get your books sold but more about how to keep going even when the sales are not what you dreamed they might be. The following is five tips to keep you smiling (and working!) when the chips aren’t rolling your way …

1. Remember Why You Began Writing In The First Place

OK, this tip is not going to be much use to you if you began writing with the main goal of becoming a best-selling author like Agatha Christie or James Patterson but it will if it wasn’t your first reason for entering the world of writing. Many successful writers including the two writers I have mentioned here didn’t achieve major success straightaway. But something keeps writers doing what they do even when their writing isn’t exactly financing enough Cornflakes. Usually it’s a love of the craft and especially a love for the characters they create. Nine times out of ten if a writer hasn’t this love, they don’t last very long. If money was the main aim after all we’d all have went into the business world or something. So when you are feeling disappointed with how things are going, remember what it is you love about writing and why you were attracted to it in the first place. It usually puts the fire back in your belly to keep going with your chosen craft.

2. Don’t Put Down The Achievements You Have Accomplished

As humans, many of us have a tendency to look at the glass as being half full. Instead if we think positively, we’ll find that we have accomplished a lot more than we first thought. For example blogging or publishing a book are accomplishments in and of themselves without the books being a worldwide hit with their covers pasted on the side of buses. The latter would be nice of course but dwelling on what you haven’t achieved won’t do you any good. Be proud of the things you have achieved and continue with a positive attitude to continue building your achievements. Try not to look at the negatives.

3. Write More, Think Less

Instead of thinking about the last book and how it’s success is going, start into the next book. As writers we go off in our own world when we’re writing so that would help rid yourself of any negative thoughts regarding sales or your work not being noticed. Many of us worry that we haven’t marketed our books enough when in reality it’s often more because there is so much choice and competition out there that our books are often not at the top of everyone’s list. But I was given this advice from a fellow writer and, I’ll share it here, to not worry about marketing past books and to just get on and finish the next one and get it out there. And I think that’s advice worth following.

4. Cherish The Readers You Have

You might want lots and lots of people reading your work and it would be great if there was. But remember that the people that are reading your work, however many that is, are taking time to do so. And time is the most precious gift one can give. So appreciate their time and support. Value them as readers and be proud that you created something that these people out there liked. And the more you write, the more people who will become familiar with your work too so keep writing and keep valuing every new reader.

5. Don’t Envy Other Authors

By this I don’t mean things such as ‘I wish I was as successful as they were’ or ‘I wish I could write like that’. That’s more of a compliment about fellow writers and it’s grand as long as you go back to your work after and continue on. What I really mean here is procrastinating and being so envious that it makes you think that your own work is worthless and that you aren’t a good writer. Or alternatively that you copy these writers and that doesn’t work well either because a writer always writes better when it’s their own writer’s voice, when it’s from the heart. Admire other writers, be playfully envious of their talents but never let it get to a stage where you give up on your own talents.

Remember that whether huge, in-between or small success is in the future that you have a voice and so much opportunity nowadays to get your work out there. Don’t give up on that. Though it might not seem it at times, you have a gift. Share it and don’t deprive the world of what you have to offer.

Why do you write and why did you decide to write a blog?

I write because it’s my way of expressing myself, it’s what I love to do and what I’m passionate about.

My Classes And Joining A Club

Philosophy– Okay so this is my new favourite subject!! It’s so deep and interesting and it’s the only subjecting where having multiple existential crisis actually helps you get good marks! And the cherry on top? My professor is absolutely hilarious and looks like George Lucas!

Psychology- So we’re basically learning stuff I’ve learnt in High School again which is awesome because it means I don’t have to work excessively hard and I already understand what the professor is talking about!

Sociology- It’s REALLY interesting!! I am going to learn about Karl Marx soon which I’m really looking forward to!

Earth Science- Okay I’m not going to lie it’s a lot more difficult than I thought it was but it’s also really interesting! Minus when we learn about rocks. That’s kind of boring to me.

History- Okay again I’m not going to lie the course I’m taking right now is boring. It’s not horrible it’s just a bit boring. I mean how much can you know about The British Isles? Apparently a lot.

And the club I joined was of course *drum roll* CREATIVE WRITERS CLUB!! The boy who’s in charge of it looks a bit like Augustus from The Fault In Our Stars 😂 I really hope he doesn’t read this post…
