If I see what I believe is misinformation under the guise of giving writers advice, I will speak up.

Earlier today, I got into a debate with an agent on Twitter. I won't name names, but suffice it to say they are somewhat new to agenting, with a handful of clients, no reported sales on Publishers ...

This is all kinds of wrong. Amazon will take down your review of a book if its bots determine you know the author. Regardless of whether that's true. 
A couple of weeks ago I read the third installment of a series I really loved. I will refrain from sharing the name of the novel and its author. Like any reader, as soon as I finished reading, I wr...

I don't often share personal stories publicly (unless they're old diary entries). However, getting a literary agent last month was a big milestone for me. This is my way of screaming it from the rooftops while sharing what I learned along the way.

I love a good How I Got My Agent story. As a querying writer, they gave me hope. As an agented writer, they make me want to high five every fellow author who's one step closer to publication. Here'...

Inspired by National Karaoke Week, here's my latest blog post for +Quirk Books. 
The last week of April marks National Karaoke Week. If you love karaoke as much as I do, there's no denying how fun it is to feel like a rock star, if only for a few minutes. And if you don't have a microphone handy, you can still rock out with these books. Hey ho, let's go!

My latest post for the +Quirk Books blog. One for the #MadMen  fans.
It's almost time to say goodbye to one of the most iconic, smart and stylish shows to grace our TVs in the last decade—if not ever. Before we part ways with Don Draper and company, let's take a literary peek at the favorite books of some of your favorite (and least favorite) characters of Mad ...

Rock out with your bookmark out.

(Image via latimesblog.latimes.com). Long has the world believed that the kids at the rock shows could never be the same ones devouring books in their free time. Of course, "the world" is wrong about a lot of stuff, but they definitely missed the mark when it comes to smarts and songs.

My latest post for Quirk!
Image via weheartlit.com. With wedding season upon us, there's no denying that love and love songs are in the air. So for those couples with a bookish inclination, we've pulled together some of the best lit-infused songs that are perfect for the reception, the first dance, or even just a ...

My latest Diary Project blog post. My account of being a deeply heartbroken 18-year-old, who was weirdly optimistic about it all.
[The following was written when I got back from Alaska, after traveling thousands of miles to visit the boy I loved, only to have him break my heart. While the tone here might be deceptively enligh...

This was one of my favorite posts to write for +Quirk Books , because these are some of my favorite types of books to read. 
#amreading  
Great storytellers create worlds for reader to escape within. Sometimes these worlds contain multiple layers, and you may find yourself in a story within a story. In some cases, we're talking an entire book inside of the one you're reading. (Yo dawg, we heard you liked books, etc.) ...

Sign the petition to #SaveTwinPeaks . 
Six months after the announcement of Showtime's Twin Peaks revival in October 2014, with a third season set to air in 2016, it has emerged that David Lynch is no longer involved with the project due to issues with contract negotiations, although the fated third season may still go ahead. Without Lynch, however, there is no Twin Peaks. With the scripts already completed and actors and fans alike eager for this to go ahead with Lynch at the helm,...

I love pretty much all Asian food, so I was biased to like this Malaysian place from the start. Nevertheless, I had a great dinner there. Beginning with a boozy Thai Iced Tea and some delicious roti, through to the noodle dishes my friend and I shared. The space is a bit cramped but cozy and service is attentive. Would definitely return and try more of the menu.

Modern Asian food in an intimate setting? Yes, please! A 7 course tasting menu for under $50? Sign me up! Some dishes were better than others but overall, a memorable meal. The mahi mahi taco was quite possibly the best taco I've had in my life and scallop and bacon satay was also terrific. The pork bun and short rib were both yummy but on the dry side but the edamame dumplings (which were shaped more like ravioli) and mini-ice cream cones that finished the meal were quite good. The cocktails were also terrific (try the rum punch, which packs a--well, you know--without being too sweet). Make sure to check out the bathroom and see how many movie quotes (which are piped in through speakers) you can identify.

It's no substitute for a real casino. There's a decent selection of slot machines, but the lack of table games is a bummer (and an electronic dealer is not the same). Also, casinos offer free drinks, so to charge for them at this place feels greedy. Seems like all the machines are tight here and I've heard it's hard to win money. I don't expect to be back any time soon.

Great place to go for a healthy lunch. The ingredients are fresh and well-prepared, with an emphasis on veggies and lean proteins. You always feel like you're doing something good for your body after eating here. Don't let the long lines intimidated you, because it moves quickly.

This is my happy place. Definitely the nicest casino I've been to in Atlantic City (and I've been to quite a few) and a lovely hotel with good dining options. I do wish there were more lower stakes tables ($5 tables are rare, if they exist at all) but hey, you get what you pay for. It's the small things, like serving drinks in glass cups instead of plastic ones, and having a general nice polish to everything instead of the worn feel of some of the casinos on the boardwalk. Also, the staff is unilaterally accommodating and super-nice, whether at the hotel, casino or restaurants. Can't wait for my next visit.

Nice spot for budget-friendly Japanese food (with some Korean options thrown in for good measure). Has tables if you want to stay and eat, but it's a very basic cafeteria vibe, so I usually grab and go. The sushi is quite good and if you have a sweet tooth, there's also a selection of desserts (the mochi is my favorite).

Best cupcakes in the world! Some find the icing too sweet but I can't get enough of it, especially the chocolate. The cake itself is moist and just barely contains the generous coating of icing. I wouldn't recommend waiting if the line is around the block because I'm impatient, but it's definitely worth the wait.
