Everyone loves receiving gifts. And although most holidays are over, that doesn't change the fact that you can still get people gifts (for birthdays, Mother's Day, etc). If the person receiving your gift loves books, here are a few suggestions on where to buy your gift.
1. Icey Designs
I love Hafsah's designs in general (she designs book covers, prints, beautiful websites - she had designed mine before I switched to this white design, and more). But my favorite thing in her arsenal are these themed pencils. Good for writers and bookworms alike, and anyone who wants a cool writing implement, these pencils are great for everyone.
2. Behind the Pages
Everyone needs bookmarks, even if you're just reading a textbook. But rather than getting a boring bookmark, what if you got a beautifully designed one that has the title of your favorite book? Check out Behind the Pages' instagram before you pick which one you want to buy on Etsy. If I had enough money, I would buy all of them — yes, they're that beautiful.
3. Hebel Design
Ever wish you could wear the beautiful (and often magical) jewelry you read about in some of your favorite books? Thanks to Hebel Design, you can! Check out the instagram account to stay on top of new additions and cool in-process/behind-the-scenes pictures.
What is #FicFest?
#FicFest is an online writer’s contest which helps put manuscripts in front of literary agents. This contest, unlike most, is open to manuscripts in ALL genres (including those usually excluded such as Paranormal Romance or Erotica) in the categories of Picture Book, Middle Grade, Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult.
#FicFest mentors are structured into fifteen (15) teams. Each category that I listed has three teams. Each team is comprised of a team leader, and two (2) team members. Once the submissions open, each team will choose three (3) finalist manuscripts and one (1) alternate manuscript to advance to the Agent Round. This means that an equal number of manuscripts for each category will move to the agent round, guaranteeing that one category does NOT overpower another when it comes time for the agents.
About the Book
Series: Unknown, 1
Author: Wendy Higgins
Genre: NA Apocalyptic Romance
Publication Date: August 16, 2016
Amber Tate believes the worst thing she’ll suffer in life is dealing with the unrequited love she feels for her brother’s best friend, Rylen Fite. She also believes war is something unfortunate that happens places far, far away from her rural Nevada town. She’s wrong on both counts.
When an unknown organization meticulously bombs major cities in the United States and across the globe, a trickle-down effect spreads to remaining towns at an alarming speed—everything from food and water sources to technological communications are compromised. Without leadership, the nation is split between paralysis and panic, but Amber isn’t one to hide or watch helplessly. She’s determined to put her nursing skills to use, despite the danger, even if it means working alongside the man she can never have.
In this first installment of NY Times bestselling author, Wendy Higgins’s debut New Adult series, a frighteningly realistic apocalyptic America is brought to life, entwined with searing romantic tension that will leave you eager for more.
