Good Day Bookish Folk! Lately, I've been having a love/hate relationship with romance books which I'll cover in my very next post. But somewhere in between all of those DNFs(Did not finish), I'll come across ones written by A.D. McCammon. Her first two books, In This Moment and Crushed can be found on amazon.com for … Continue reading In The Gray by A.D. McCammon| COVER REVEAL + Giveaway!
I did a post some time back about having someone hovering over my shoulder or just casually standing behind me. People responded to it, so I guess I'm not the only one that feels a mixed surge of annoyance and anxiousness by it. Lately, I've been growing a special distaste for answering phones, but it's … Continue reading New Anxieties
I've always written for self-fulfillment more than anything else. This I've said a gajillion times, and nothing's going to change that. It's been almost four years since I've been considering publishing, and I've been faced with many highs and many lows. I understand it all comes with the territory of writing. It's no easy feat … Continue reading Is my heart still in it?| Writing Fiction

There's a twin dynamic in my current work in progress so I'm getting a … Continue reading Am I obsessed with twins?|Writing Fiction
I've got back to back book reviews 🙂 And I'm happy that I completed four books in January so far. My secret goal is to do four a month but I don't want to do any bragging yet because I know myself. Life gets in the way. Finally finished Shatter Me, and started Forget Me … Continue reading Shatter Me by Taherah Mafi|Book Review

Just like anything, I've come to realize that writing books is a business in itself. At the end of the day we all want to be our authentic selves in hopes that at least one person will receive it positively but it's also true that we write for an audience. Particularly in the romantic genres, … Continue reading Is Third Person POV Dead?|Writing Fiction
Hi Bookish Folks, I'm honestly overwhelmed by all the social media-ing it takes to promote oneself as a writer. Personally, I'm not much of a sharer other than funny or animal videos but I decided to finally undertake creating a Facebook page for my blog, Bookish Kat. My main reason for doing this is to … Continue reading Connect with my blog on Facebook!
Over the last year, and up until this morning, I've been coming across posts by other writers asking how to combat lack of inspiration/motivation. Some days you just can't bring yourself to sit and write, your thoughts are all over the place. We all have our down days. Now it's easy to share different techniques, … Continue reading Taking Inspiration from other Authors|Writing Fiction
