Trust me I have been there and I am still trying to figure out The Blogsphere of a book blogger, I haven’t been in the game that long but so far, I have come across some minor challenges. I think we can all agree it isn’t easy especially for those who dare to dip their toes and put their thoughts out there to be judged or even go unnoticed

“If you show someone something you’ve written, you give them a sharpened stake, lie down in your coffin, and say, ‘When you’re ready’.”

Genre: Contemporary, Modern Classic, Thriller, Literary Fiction

You either love it or you down right hate it and I lowered my expectations which somehow helped me to see the beauty that this story had to offer.
