Welcome back for round two of the Love Your Novel writing challenge responses. I'm really enjoying the challenge presented by these prompts. Days 12 and 13 proved to be quite interesting this past week. Read on to check out my responses.
Today, I'm sharing my book review of "Chasing Cinders" by Elizabeth D. Marie. I read it twice and was able to write a better review after the second reading. Also, join me once again as I continue my interview with this hard-working indie author. We're discussing her writing with a focus on her most recent books, the "Crown of Stars" series of which "Chasing Cinders" is the second book.
Oh, no! Not another challenge! Yep, another challenge piqued my interest. The Love Your Novel writing challenge runs through February and I thought I'd use it to keep up motivation for making my current WIP the best it can be. Read on to see the first week's responses.
How exciting! I'm doing my first author interview this month with Elizabeth D. Marie. She's one of my new favorite authors. Her 'Crown of Stars' series features fantastic retellings of classic fairy tales. I loved them so much I wanted to be certain other readers get the chance to give them a try. Read on to see my short book review of Saving Beauty (which might be my favorite up to this point) and see part one of my interview with Elizabeth, the author of these wonderful books.
When it comes to the copyright on your work, you automatically own all the rights. When someone tells you, "Hey, you should copyright that," what they really mean is you need to register your work with the U.S. Copyright Office (in the US, obviously. Other countries have their own rules and offices for this.) You own the rights to your work when you create it. But when you register your work, this adds a small layer of protection for you. However, the story doesn't really end there. Read on to find out a little more on the topic...
I did it! I finally made it to the last day of the two challenges. I'm so glad I stuck with it and met the goals I set for myself. And if it helped someone else, then I'm really glad I decided to share my challenge with others.
Read on to see my last two challenge responses.
Two days left (or one day) in the challenge! Can you believe how fast January just went by? I'm amazed at how far my story has come in spite of unforeseen setbacks and unexpected forced breaks. But I survived the first month of the year and I've got the challenge responses to prove I wasn't idle. :)

Rather than one book review, I've got two for you today. I'm determined to make my 100 book reading goal this year. Thanks to Bookbub and the library and coupons from my favorite bookstores, I'll have no excuse not to. XD
Read on to check out yesterday's writing challenge responses and read the two reviews.
So round one of editing on the passages I posted over the past seven days. Does that mean I'm finished? Not at all! It only means my story will get better from here on. I'll keep polishing my work until it's good and shiny. And then, if the budget allows, I'll find an editor to help me make my project the best it can be. If not, I'll do my best with the help of some volunteers and go from there. Either way, progress on book two is moving along and I'm so excited by the things I've learned over the past month up to this point. Read on to see how I responded to yesterday's challenge prompts...
We're coming to the end of the month. How have you done? The day after tomorrow (or tomorrow) if you're following along on social media) begins the wrap-up of the Writing the Senses Challenge. Think back on what you've done over the month and be prepared to share some of your best highlights.
For now, onward to the challenge responses...
