Riki’s Roundup: Out & About
Wow! What a month it’s been! I’ve been all over the web, doing all sorts of really cool things, and I’m excited to share them with you! From posts about the writing life, to book round-ups featuring totally awesome novels, I’ve had the opportunity to do a little of everything this month.
So, sit back, and click away to catch up!
Up first, I’ve had the opportunity to read some really wonderful books and talk about some cool bookish news over at LitReactor this month:
- My first column was a Book vs. Television post featuring the Starz adaptation of Diana Gabaldon’s wonderful OUTLANDER novel.
- My second column of the month was a round-up of 6 YA Novels That Deal With Mental Health. Important books on a very important topic! there’s some awesome books on this list that you don’t want to miss!
- For a peek at some awesome bookish news, here’s pieces on A Wrinkle in Time and J.K. Rowling.
Next, I’ve recently joined the team over at Writer Diaries with a fabulous group of women writers who regularly talk about everything related to the writing life. This month I’ve had the chance to weigh in on a couple of their popular Tuesday Topic posts, and do a post of my own too.
- This month, I talked about my experience at the SCBWI Summer Conference in Los Angeles, with Conference Takeaways.
Over at Pen & Muse, they do a really wonderful event called Pen & Muse Press Summer School, where they feature tons of content from a wide variety of writers aimed at making your writing that much better.
- I was pleased to join in the fun and share my own piece on Getting Your Opening Up To Par.
And last, I’m super excited to share with you my first post over at the wonderful Quirk Books. (Their tagline is: Seekers of All Things Awesome, and for darned good reason!)
- For my first post at Quirk Books, I went Road-Tripping With YA, talking about wonderful YA literature featuring epic road trips.
So, that’s what I’ve been up to in August! I’ll be back in September with two columns at LitReactor, a couple of posts at Writer diaries, and a couple of book reviews at Pen & Muse. See you soon!
