Managing a Blogging Team

by Donna Huber

Keeping up with a daily publication is a lot of work. Thankfully having a team that shoulders at least some of the work helps lessen the stress. I have a great team of writers at Girl Who Reads and I have learned a lot over the last couple of years of managing a team.

Review ~ Ekata: Fall of Darkness by Dominique Law

by MK French

Asher grew up on Ekata, a utopian world of peace and spiritual purity. He always had visions of death and destruction, which is unheard of in his world, and he was ostracized for it. He learned of the prophecy regarding Ekata and Earth, and had to find Alexis, who grew up in New Zealand feeling as though she didn't belong. Together they had to learn how to hone their psychic gifts and save both worlds.

Two #Books about Women in Transition

Reviews by Susan Roberts

If you read my reviews, you know that I'm drawn to books about women who are making transitions in their lives. Today I have reviews of two books on this subject - one about a young woman who has to completely change her life when she loses the job that she loved and the second about an older woman who decides that she can no longer stay married and takes drastic steps to change her life.

Interview with H.G. McKinnis, Author of A Justified Bitch

Today, we welcome H.G. McKinnis, author of A Justified Bitch. You live in Las Vegas, and that’s also where your book is set. Why do you think this city provides such a rich backdrop for storytelling.

For starters, Las Vegas is a 24-hour town. Where else can you golf or go bowling at two in the morning and follow it up with a meal at a nice restaurant before sunrise?  Another amazing feature is that, as a resident, I don’t really have to travel. The whole world comes here – not only to gamble and drop inhibitions, but to conduct business, get married, and go to school. For a relatively young city, Las Vegas has a rich, fascinating history. Who would have thought that a tiny Mormon fort surrounded by desert would grow into a metropolis of two million in just over a century? Add in mobsters, showgirls, and nuclear physicists testing bombs, and you get a history that’s any novelist’s dream. I’ll never run out of stories.

Review: The Curious Affair of the Somnambulist and the Psychic Thief by Lisa Tuttle #MondayBlogs

by MK French

Miss Aphrodite (Di) Lane had been fascinated by psychic phenomena but disillusioned by the apparent trickery of her friend Miss Fox. This led her back to London, where she became the assistant and partner of Mr. Jasper Jesperson, a consulting detective. They were hired on to follow a somnambulist after a number of smaller cases local to their office. The case was soon tied to that of missing mediums in the city, and then it grew even more personal when Miss Lane herself was abducted.

Harold Boardman: The Inspiration for A Pawn of Destiny

Political and economic history has always been of interest to me and to a certain extent, has helped with my understanding of my research into my family history. A timeline that stretches a mere 250 years. Our written past appears to be a long list of events detailing the lives and discoveries of Kings or Emperors, on a quest for more land, or merchants in search of undiscovered sources of wealth in far off, exotic lands. Surviving historical accounts name only the headline makers, those whose exploits match the design of the ruling class. Dismissed, with little or no regard, are the ordinary lives of all with whom they came into contact.
