She still refused to look at him, but she could feel the heated flush of anger again in her cheeks. “Cooperate with the guards. For your own sake,” he continued. “Be good yourself, Captain,” she said […]
This is just a quick post about something that’s been on my mind for a while. It’s sad that there are so many preconceived ideas about YA novels, ideas that show those who speak about them, very often haven’t read any. I’m writing for adults, children and Young Adults and in one of my writer’s […]
Publication date: 2015 Pages: 350 Word count: ? Ages: YA They are all innocent until proven guilty. But not me. I am a liar until I am proven honest. What a book! I finished it a while ago but I’m still stunned. Sometimes you read a book and the topic shocks you. Then you read a book […]
Publication date: 2014 Pages: 198 Word count: ? Ages: YA Last year I read my first Dana Reinhardt novel (The Summer I Learned to Fly) and liked it a great deal. The story was cute, the characters lovable but what I liked the most was the tone and the voice. I knew I would read another […]

I am so thrilled!! Much deserved rewards for a talented writer, and a generous reader. Thanks for all the support you’ve given me. I can’t say how happy I am for you! I’ll pass the good news along …
Thanks for the kind words and your support as well. It means a lot.
Congratulations Caroline – that’s brilliant! 🙂
Thank you, Karen.
I didn’t even know you wrote, Caroline – am very pleased indeed for you and well done! It does pay to submit, doesn’t it (and I need to do it more often as well).
Thank you so much, Marina. Yes – keeping our stories hidden isn’t the way to go. My luck was finding a writers group that is supportive and so helpful. The more experienced ones just help the others, cheer them on, explain processes. I’ve been writing for ages but wanted to wait until I had at least some stories out before telling.
Hi Caroline, many congratulations. 🙂 I am so happy for you.
I just read the story. It was beautiful. Way too beautiful. Thank you for sharing it with us. 🙂
Thank you so much, Deepika.
Ah, that’s a nice piece Caroline.
So when does this officially become “a roll”….?
Thanks, leroy. In a way it is already a roll. The first got accepted and was published by Fine Linen Magazine two months ago – not avalable online. And I got confirmation from Daily Science Fiction as well.
Almost a roll.
Congratulations, Caroline! This is wonderful news!
What an evocative piece. You did so much with so few words to capture the truth of that moment. I especially loved this simile: “Steam rises like water powder…” I’ve never thought of it that way before.
Thank you, so much, Jackie. Glad you liked the simile.
Well done. So exciting. I will definitely take time to read it. Happy Christmas also. Here’s to more happiness and writing in 2016.
Thank you so much for your wishes.
I wish you wonderful things for 2016 as well!
Congratulations, Caroline! It’s beautiful, very descriptive and poetic.
Thanks so much for reading and your comment, Delia.
I just read your piece, Caroline. It’s beautiful. Many congratulations!
Thank you, Jacqui. I’m very glad you liked it.
I loved the piece. You managed to say so much a few words.
Thanks so much, Brian.
Caroline, how fantastic! Many, many congratulations – such a gorgeous, still, evocative piece!
Thank you so much, Litlove. I’m so glad you like it.
Loved the story, Caroline! Short and sweet like a picture postcard. I loved the way the story zooms in and out and shows the reader things from different perspectives. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks so much, Vishy.
