Welcome Back, Alex!

Posted on by Brianna L. Tibbetts

When I was about eleven, my mother asked me to read a book she had heard about, with the goal of seeing if it was appropriate for my eight-year-old brother. The book was Stormbreaker, the first in the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz. While my brother did end up eventually reading most of the series, I'm the one who purchased them all and re-read them numerous times. Usually when I buy books, especially series, I get the same editions....

I'm Not Really a Fan of the Interstate

Posted on by Brianna L. Tibbetts

It's been a while since I've posted an update, hasn't it?

I found it on the shelf in my local library...

NerdCon: Stories

Posted on by Brianna L. Tibbetts

I just got home from the fourth writing event I've attended this year. NerdCon: Stories, developed by Hank Green and Patrick Rothfuss, was put on this year for the very first time. As with any convention or conference in its first year infancy, there were good aspects to it, and some things that I expect to be modified and fixed before NerdCon returns next fall. Overall, I'm glad I attended, and I would definitely consider returning. The conference was held...
