The Importance of Reading Diverse Literature: A Discussion

The Importance

Hey everyone! I’m back today with a discussion post! If you haven’t read my previous discussion post on hyped up books, you can read it here. Now, onto the discussion!

We live in a very diverse world and as book readers, we all want the worlds we read about to be somewhat similar to ours. We read to escape, but what should naturally carry over to the stories we read are different cultures, religions, and ethnicity.

But that doesn’t happen. Let me tell you why diversity is important in literature. Read More

My Experience at North Texas Teen Book Festival!

Hello everybody! Today I will be telling you guys about my experience going to my first ever book festival! Only a few weeks ago I stumbled upon the North Texas Teen Book Festival somewhere online (I’m not sure where, as I’ve already forgotten, I think it might’ve been Twitter), and I realized that it was taking place only 40 minutes away from where I live. The second I found that out I told my sister and my parents and they said that I could go! Read More

I wrote a guest post on a friend’s blog about world building. Check it out!

Lost In A Story

Welcome back to my 12-week project in which I attempt to prepare for writing my own novel in Camp NaNoWriMo this April. You can check out the last posts here: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. This week’s post is about world building and it is written by one of my favourite blogger friends Savannah, I hope you love it as much as I do!


Hello everybody! My name is Savannah and I’m a blogger over at The Book Prophet. Today, I’m here to talk to you about World Building and the easiest (and best) ways you can create the world in your novel.

As you might know, World Building is crucial to any book, especially fantasy and sci-fi. When you’re creating an entirely different world instead of putting your own spin on the present world, it can become overwhelming and difficult. I…

Interview:


1. What romance novels inspired you to write Corrupt Me? 

A romance novel did not inspire Corrupt Me, but I was inspired by Mafia movies as well as the novel and the movie, The Godfather. I was having one of my Mafia movie binge days, switching from the movie Goodfellas to The Godfather, both of which are my favorite movies of all time, and I started to think about the relationships between both Karen and Henry in Goodfellas as well as Michael and Kay in The Godfather.

2. What are some romance novel pet peeves of yours?

Female characters without a backbone are very common in romance novels, and as a strong female, I do not appreciate reading about a weak heroine who allows the man to walk all over her, only to take him back without another thought.

3. What were a few inspirations for your main characters?

In Goodfellas, Karen was strong and stood up to Henry, and I always respected her for that, where Kay backed down to Michael in The Godfather and let him control her and the kids until she finally had the nerve to leave him. Izzie’s character was inspired by the portrayal of Karen Hill by Lorriane Bracco in Goodfellas.

4. If you had to choose one author to co-write a book with, who would it be and why? What would the book be about?

I would want to write a book with Jamie McGuire because I love her books and because her book, Beautiful Disaster, is what hooked me on new adult romance novels. I had never read one until Writers Digest mentioned her book in one of their newsletters, and I have been hooked on the genre ever since. I’d like to write a romance novel involving addiction with Jamie, if that were possible. She creates amazing characters with a lot of depth and addiction is something I would like to write more about someday.

5. Are there any other books that you’re currently working on? If so, what’re they about?

My next novel, Parker, is a hockey romance novel that is part of the Face-Off series. Parker comes out on February 14, 2017. I am also releasing Divine Powers, a fantasy romance novel about witches and magic on May 9, 2017. I’m also working on a companion novella for Corrupt Me that I am planning to give out for free to all of my newsletter subscribers as well as writing other books in the Philly Corruption and Face-Off series.


Thank you Jill for giving me this chance to ask you questions concerning your first novel, Corrupt Me. If you’re interested in Jill’s future work, check out her author website here. Happy reading!

lots-of-love
