Thanks to Naomi Hughes @NaomiLHughes, I have a new and (fingers crossed) awesome query letter. Here’s the main part:
Here’s my MASH for the Rocky Top Real Talk #boutofbooks challenge.
I looked for an online version of the game. Sadly, the categories were not customizable. (If someone finds one that is, please let me know!)
As you can see, I MASHed my way to Penn State (which is where I really did go to college) and majored in Philosophy (nope, I majored in English), I married my favorite author– myself (hilarious), and settled down in Philadelphia (which is true for part of the year) where I live in my mansion (ha ha ha… sure I do). And I’m a psychologist now. (Don’t look to carefully at that diploma.) I am having 237 children with myself. (Hermaphrodites unite!)
Each of my 80 girls and 157 boys purchase my books and write reviews because I’ve used my psychology powers on them! And, when that fails, I beat them with long philosophical debates. #humor
This has been an awesome challenge. Thanks for the laughs. How did yours go, if you took part?

Book Read and Reviewed:
This is the thirtieth book I’ve read this year. My review of @MGerrick1‘s other book can be found on my “Fantasy Blog Tour for the War of Six Crowns” post.
The Heir’s Choice by M Gerrick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Book Two has the ending I craved after reading the first book. This portal fantasy is well-written. The characters are interesting. A story with unexpected twists and turns. I enjoyed it immensely. Book Three will be on my reading list for sure.
I’d like to take a moment to showcase one of the fantastic character relationships created in this book. In this scene, a character transforms/ grows up. It not only shows the sort of relationships this author has written, but also the brand of humor that is sprinkled throughout the story.
Here’s a scene where the author managed to describe a physical characteristic in a fun and inventive way without reliance on just adjectives for a color. Many new writers struggle with this, so consider this a #writetip:
This last scene just happens to be my favorite scene in The Heir’s Choice.
In case you wondered, yes, I did get permission from the author to put those exceprts in this blog post.
Why does the age matter? Because that’s ONE MORE CHECK on the Popsugar Reading Challenge!
