NaNoWriMo. Any participants?

Published November 12, 2013 by G.L.

Hope all is well in the month of November. Since it is a great month to write, Libertad and I have been taking advantage of the push of NaNoWriMo. Wanted to know if there were any takers as well?

Does anyone have unconventional methods on how they write?(Not sure why, but Libertad or I can not type anything until it is written on paper first. Our first two drafts are typically on the paper and pen method, which I see most typically type it out!)

We’ve been doing cool things on our review book blog “Twinja Book Reviews“, which we keep separate from our author blog. We actively seek out books that feature marginalized groups as main characters and love interests(POC, disabled, LGBTQ,non-Christian, etc.). So if anyone knows any recommendations, please let us know, or hop on over to the site =D

If you didn’t see it before, last month we met Nnedi Okorafor, and this month we met Marie Lu, author of “Legend”, “Prodigy”, and “Champion.” IMG_2501 IMG_2502

We hope to also meet David Levithan as well, as he’s coming to Connecticut too! He’s the author of many books featuring Queer characters as main characters and love interests, so we hope it goes well!

To close, just wanted to let everyone know, we have been writing to attempt to take advantage of NaNoWriMo, so our posts have been fewer than most months. Hope everyone can bare with, and hope for a great holiday coming up.

Is anyone else participating in NaNoWriMo?

Celebrating Diversity at The “Nigerian Independence Day” Gala with Nnedi Okorafor

Published October 6, 2013 by G.L.

We recently posted this on our blog Twinja Book Reviews , but it just deserved to be shouted here too!

We recently got the opportunity to meet Nnedi Okorafor, and she was awesome. She made a great speech, and entertained many with signing books and taking pictures with fans, including us!

She was super tall. We were almost afraid to go up to her, she looked so serious until we took the chance! She was majorly nice, and it was a great opportunity to meet such an accomplished author. We hope all authors can lead by her example. When you have fans, treat them well. You’re never too good to push away those who admire your work!

What a great end to the week!
