Follow Friday & 2 Announcements

It's Friday once again. There is great rejoicing among the peoples of the earth and it is time for a blog hop. The Feature and Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. The features this week are Ezine of a Random Girl and Oh! For the Love of Books. Don't forget to follow them!

This week's Question: Activity!!! Take a picture or describe where you love to read the most...

All right...

Tyler-Rose's deluxe reading throne.
The place I love to read best is actually at home, several thousand miles away, but this is where I do most of my reading at college.

The pillow is leaning against one of the legs of my bed and is beaten to the perfect angle so the maximum amount of reclining can be achieved without actually being flat on my back, which would put me to sleep for sure. I still sort of sprawl across the space. My lovely roommate steps over me.

Where is your favorite place to read?

Now, time for the ANNOUNCEMENTS!  (From Susan--switching it up here...) 

Announcement #1: 
The e-book version Jessica Therrien's debut novel OPPRESSION is on sale for only 99 cents!  People!  Even if it didn't sound awesome (YA, descendants of Greek gods, FATE), that would be an awesome deal!  You can get the e-book of OPPRESSION for less than a dollar: 

HERE from Barnes & Noble! 
Or...HERE from Amazon!

Please at least check it out! 

Announcement #2: 
Calling all reader-bloggers!  I am looking for beta readers for my YA fantasy novel, THE MADMAN'S CROWN.  I would need you to read it in the second half of March, and will simply ask for general, reader-ly reactions.  If you want to get a feel for what the book is about, click HERE to see (one version of) my query or HERE to see what I'd get my main characters for Christmas...

If this is something you might like to do, email me at and we can talk. 


  1. You mean our faithful blog-squire steps over you.

  2. Hey I will read your book for you! I am a mom of college and high school students so I have to say I am very proud of you for writing a book and doing the blog while in college. Seriously that is good. If you get a sec. My blog is.

    1. Thank you! It is kind of crazy, but having Tyler-Rose as a blogger buddy really helps. :) And please send me an email about beta reading if you're interested!!

  3. Ooh, that looks like a super comfortable pillow!
