Spring into Horror Read-a-thon

Here we go again! This time Michelle over at Seasons of Reading is hosting a horror readathon — for 2 whole weeks! I do like thrillers and mildly scary movies, but I'm the kind of woman who'll find myself thinking of horror scenes while I'm home alone at night, so I try not to feed my imagination that way. But I'm excited about reading a different genre than I usually gravitate towards.

These are the victims I will try to kill, I mean read in the next 2 weeks:


The Graveyard Book 
by Neil Gaiman
Bird Box 
by Josh Malarian
Desperation Road 
by Michael Farris Smith



Join us, check out the #SpringHorror challenge and join along: Spring into Horror Read-a-thon

  1. Welcome, Suzanne! So glad you could join us.

    Happy Reading!

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.
