UPDATE 1/17

I guess I should make a reading list, because everyone knows to be successful at anything, one really needs to set goals (or at the very least, have a plan!)

Last night, I finished my first book, "War of the Heart" by new author Jenna Victoria.
The story takes place in a contemporary setting, and then, through time travel, the couple, Louise and George travel back to Great Britain during Christmas 1940. Great setting with WWII raging through the streets and everyone fearing for their lives and having to ration food and goods on a daily basis. What I loved most was the abundance of interesting little details about that time period, things I'd never known.
The book is Christian Romance, not a genre I've read before, but it was extremely well written and I really enjoyed it!
My rating:
I'll be back tomorrow, armed with my reading list goals!

Marriage is NOT beautiful

I can't take the credit for this, but the words are so true I had to share.

The Art of Letting Go

The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.
If you’re like me, and most of the world, somewhere around the first of January, you made New Year’s resolutions, and set a few goals. Maybe yours was to get into shape, travel or get that promotion you always wanted. This year, I want to write my next novel and another immediately after that. Anyone serious about reaching a goal needs to have a strategy—because ideas without a plan of action are merely wishful thinking.
I had a plan, had it all mapped out, and revved up and ready to roll, I sat down to write. I wrote a few paragraphs, but suddenly I had no interest in telling the story I’d started.  The next day I sat down to try a new story, but my protagonist, suitcase in hand, waved goodbye and sped off to the airport. 
After a couple of weeks, I’d written nothing compelling. I literally felt empty, like I had nothing interesting or meaningful to share. Stressed and depressed, I started to throw darts at the whole idea of a writi…

Author Interview with The Suffolk County News

Modern romance Local author pens love stories that resonate with contemporary readers By Vanessa Graniello

Suzanne McKenna Link is the indie author of “Saving Toby” and its sequel, “Keeping Claudia.” A Sayville resident and native of the South Shore, McKenna Link puts a modern edge on the clichés of the old-fashioned Romance novel. She skillfully fuses the high drama of the Brontës while navigating the complexities of modern love: the fine line between love and lust; choosing between the independence of pursuing career and the sacrifices of a relationship; and grappling with society’s expectations of marriage, just to name a few. Not to mention, McKenna Link’s characters are so authentic that their behavior has often thrown readers and reviewers alike into frenzied, impassioned debates. McKenna Link spoke with The Suffolk County News about her writing process and how she puts an original spin on timeworn romantic tropes.
