GOOD WRITING IS LIKE GOOD SEX
Sort of Sexy Thoughts on Writing
What makes a book sexy?
I’m not talking about erotica, per say, but what is the difference between a book you eagerly devour and a book you slum your way through?
While there are individual exceptions, the most objective difference between a good story and a downright terrible one is simple—it all comes down to the writing.
It’s either good writing, and we can forgive the technical flaws a little more easily, or it’s bad writing, and bad writing is just bad.
Good writing is more than just good writing.

THE GIRL OF ALL MY MEMES
He didn’t “meme” to do it …
The day I fell in love with Kara was the day I accidentally ruined her life, and I was as blindsided by ruining her life as much as I was by falling in love with her. According to my now ex-best friend, Miles, love is supposed to make you feel stupid, but I never thought my stupidity, or anybody else’s for that matter, would lead to such devastation.
Tenth grader Tommy Baher has always lived in the shadow of his older brother Johnathan, and he has always hated it. Determined to set himself apart from his brother, Tommy puts all his efforts into securing the highest grades in his class. There's just one problem standing in his way: Kara Metaxas, his longtime academic rival, who has always made his life at school difficult.
When Tommy and Kara are invited to participate in the Junior Science and Technology Symposium, an academic competition hosted by a prestigious college, Tommy sees it as a chance to prove himself to his parents and his peers. Tommy feels even more sure of himself as he begins to make funny memes using a picture of Kara. Everything is coming together for him.
But when Tommy starts to change his mind about Kara - and subsequently, nearly everything else about his life - his memes go viral, and threatens to destroy everything Tommy has worked for.
Can he find a way to make things right with Kara before he loses everything?
The Moonlight Pegasus
Sapphira is a desert world with little plant life, where the people live in the shadows of gray sunlight, sickened by the Dark Plague. To cure the people, the Guardian of Dreams sends the Spirit of Truth to bring the light back into his darkened world. In the form of Pegasus, he enters the world through the pure, innocent dreams of Selene, the reluctant princess and heir-apparent to the throne.
Now, with her brother Dorian as king, another rebellion is stirring. All eyes are turning to Selene to bring peace through an arranged marriage. However, Selene only has eyes for her true love—her protector, Etoileon. As the rebellion unleashes its fury upon the kingdom of Sapphira and the supernatural forces collide, Selene is caught in the middle of all conflicts—the battle for her world, the battle for her love, and the battle for her very soul.
One Night of Moonlight
Years after Sapphira's battle against the Dark Plague, Princess Selene has grown up - and so has her daughter, Terra.
Despite her mother's numerous stories and the affirmation of her friends and people, Terra sees the world as a place that still welcomes darkness, and she wonders if the Dark Plague is really gone - and if Pegasus was truly as real as her mother says. When tragedy strikes, Terra is faced with the haunting question of whether or not she can believe - and whether it really matters in the end.
