FREE BOOKS…n other stuff



So I just wanted to let everyone know there are a couple giveaways going on right now in case you wanted to throw your hat in the ring and try to score a FREE copy of Lizzy Speare and the Cursed Tomb. I’m giving away both ebook and print copies.

A Thousand Wrongs: Giveaway – Print copy


Middle Grade Madness at Word Spelunking – 2 ebook and 1 print

The last link has an interview with Lizzy herself.

So go ahead – toss your hat into the ring and see what happens.

Many thanks to both Aeicha at Word Spelunking and Laurisa at A Thousand Wrongs for hosting the giveaways. As always, our Starburst of Thanks!



In other stuff, I’m currently working on both the second Lizzy book and a YA sci-fi book and I have to tell you, I’m in a REALLY good writing place. I’m writing this so that later, when I’m not in a really good writing place (which is bound to happen) I’ll see this and remember that I can get through it and get back to this good place.

Oh! And also Pen and Muse is going to run the post I wrote about getting rejected sometime next week so I’m feeling pretty good about that too cause it’s exactly the sort of piece I would have LOVED to read when I was getting rejected.

Man, I’m just airing all sorts of stuff here today. Isn’t this why I keep a journal? For all this blathering?

Signing off….


By Ally Malinenko

I live in Brooklyn which is good except when it’s not which is horrid. I’ve been writing for awhile, and have some stuff published and some stuff not. I don’t like when people refer to pets as their children and I can’t resist a handful of cheez-its when offered. I have a burning desire to go to Antarctica, specifically to the South Pole so I can see where Robert Falcon Scott died. I like to read books. I like to write stories and poems. I even wrote some novels. You can read them.
