Novel-Tea: Part 11

All Fall Down is a captivating story about a young girl, Sunny, who flees a cult - transitioning from the only life she's known into the scary world of the blemished (average people).

I really enjoyed this book.

Notice how I always enjoy books? That's because I only mention the ones I like on my blog. Being a writer, I imagine how sad it would be to stumble upon a bad review, so if I have nothing nice to say, I say nothing!


It kept me guessing how things would turn out for Sunny and her kids. The end wasn't what I expected, and I liked the unpredictability of it.

I'm pretty excited about my DAVIDsTEA review. Bamboozled is so sweet smelling that when I put my nose near the bag, I can almost taste it. It's another one of those teas that's great hot or cold. I've been putting my tea in the steeper with cold water and letting it steep in the fridge overnight. I can't deal with hot tea in the summer.

My tea party dress is from one of my favorite stylish stars - Lauren Conrad. This is from her Paper Crown line. The cut of this dress looks like it would be very flattering.


I've been lazy lately with sending in queries for my book. At last count, I've submitted 21 query e-mails and received ten "no thanks" responses. I know I should send in more queries, but the idea of shelving it and writing a new book is tempting. I can't really focus on starting something new until I've done everything I can with Losing My Anchor, but when is the point where I stop trying? I'm also toying with the idea of approaching local publishers.

Have you read anything great lately?

Please keep reviewing Herbal or rooibos teas, Jen! I don't drink caffeine but am in love with David's.

Most of the ones I buy are caffeine free! Jessie's Tea is an amazing rooibos and sooooo yummy iced.

have you considered doing it as an ebook? maybe that would help you nab a publisher!
