J. E. H U N T E R

A writer of young adult fiction specializing in self-publishing, creativity, and writing.

One of the hardest things about self-publishing (at least for me), is committing to a publishing schedule. I’m terrible at picking release dates for my books and achieving that date.

Young Adult Book Review: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. This is one of those books that you hear about forever, and that you know a lot of people love, but you just put it off because something about it doesn’t appeal to you. To me, I didn’t like the cover or the blurb, so I …

Young Adult Book Review: Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner Sometimes the problem with borrow e-books (or audiobooks) from the library is that they expire and if I haven’t read them fast enough then I need to go on the wait list to borrow them again. This happened with Their Fractured Light. …
