An Englishman in New Jersey – Interesting blog posts about writing – w/e September 6th, 2013. I wanted to share with you all a blog I have been following long before I knew about wordpress. I hope you will all find his blog informative and helpful in your writing pursuits.


I just finished reading The River by Cheryl Kaye Tardif. It was quite the adventure. Read my review on GoodReads:

Goodreads | Darlene Milner’s review of The River.

I usually copy these to my LiveJournal and Amazon but am never as happy as the reviewing possibilities on GoodReads.

I Have Questions


I see many of you post your own stories on your blogs. Do you worry about theft of ideas or content?

Someone posted that they found they couldn’t back post or something like that. I have been avoiding posting my book reviews here because I have them in my LiveJournal and on my GoodReads and Amazon. Do you know if it is allow for me to copy and paste my reviews to here, also?

Thanks for your responses!

A little over a  week ago, I was excited to be nominated for the Leibster Award. By Linda G Hill . Thank you, VERY much!

Then I saw the list below for what is required. Yikes! And what is a Leibster Award anyway? I’ve sat on this for a week and finally decided to do a Google search. The first entry is a blog by Sopphey who was kind enough to share her research into the topic. There you can find the history of the Leibster Award and a bit about why it is there.
