It’s dark, it’s creepy, it came out last week… and I just don’t know how I feel about The Cresswell Plot. Continue reading “The Cresswell Plot ★★★☆☆”
If you follow me on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, or Instagram than you got to watch Magdalyn Ann and I go across the country over the last two weeks when we took the train to Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, back to … Continue reading Back to the Real World
It’s pretty much Narnia, and I don’t feel like it’s good Narnia. Three children stumble upon an extraordinary library in an old house. Armed with magical books, and accompanied by an enchanting deerhound, they leave through a door that takes … Continue reading The Palace Library ★☆☆☆☆
If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Instagram (Or Round Robin Writes on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Instagram) then you know that Magalyn Ann and I are out on the most epic of road trips.
Last Thursday, I graduated with my MA in Writing from Rowan University. Now, I get to display my name as Jessica M Tuckerman, MA. How cool is that? Any who, I didn’t get to walk across the stage because they were running an hour behind and I had to catch our first train. Continue reading “1 Week into the Road”
I mean the title is spot on… it is literally about life after the undead. Continue reading Life After the Undead ★☆☆☆☆
I am literally days away from presenting my work to an audience. My manuscript is printed, my Writing for Children and YA portfolio is done and just needs to get printed, and my presentation has two things that need to … Continue reading Symposium
Fifteen weeks? Seriously? I’ve been at this for…fifteen…weeks?
Isn’t my semester only fifteen weeks long?
Don’t mind me. Crying is productive. Continue reading “End of Week #15”
It’s dense, it’s slow, it’s beautiful, and well thought out. Language alone makes me think it’s not Young Adult. That’s not to say that YA Books can’t be beautifully written, but the writing in A Thousand Nights does not capture the YA voice.

It’s pizza day! And I brought lunch today. Because I like fried chicken and I’ve been making it like all week.
Another crazy week filled with mailings and blog posts and giphy–oh my! Continue reading “End of Week #14”
This week was very productive for me. I finished a huge mailing, finished a list of Bookstore-Cafes, posted blog posts (of course), filled up the Tumblr queue, starred in a 2 second SnapChat about what it’s like to intern at Quirk, came up with some Book Bento-esque ideas, organized the Marketing bookshelf, picked winners for the #PPZ Swag Bag giveaway (which I’m still getting entries for-IT’S CLOSED PEOPLE), answered/forwarded messages for the contact us sheet, aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand found jumping off points for the Blog Sky meeting for May.
Lauren and I have been going through the contact us sheet, and fielding emails to our own quirk emails about internships and some people have great questions about the experience-how many hours, what experience is best, etc. Some people are emailing the interns to ask if Quirk offers internships.
A little forethought. That’s all I ask. Continue reading “End of Week #13”
