Book Review - Made of Stars by Kelly York

I read Made of Stars, the first book I've ever read by Kelly York, because Entangled Teen very kindly invited me to review books for them, and Made of Stars featured an ensemble of heroes. It's a mystery. And, last but not least, it has an absolutely gorgeous cover, a cover that hints at sublime revelations.

Florida Romance Writers Online Workshop "Abusing the Sentence"

Florida Romance Writers will host an online workshop by MM Pollard, editor for Black Velvet Seductions.

I just took Pollard's two week workshop, " Head-hopping and Roving Body Parts." Pollard's lessons are short, to the point, and memorably funny. I'll never be able to write a sentence like

" His legs raced down the street," or
