… Bethany said to me…
Bethany, is a 23 year old, young writer stuck in a land of college loan payments.
“I live in Blackstone, MA, am currently working full-time at Macy’s in Providence, and work on Mondays at ABSW. I graduated college in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in creative writing. Since graduation, I have been doing some sparse blogging on some personal blogs, random scribbles of writing in various notebooks, and recently began nursing an idea for what could possibly become a fairly good story. I also read almost religiously.”
Bethany recommends books by Scott Westerfeld!
The Uglies Trilogy Is OK, but honestly if you’re looking for a good book for a gift, try out his Midnighters trilogy, and if you’re looking for a vastly different take on modern vampires, try Peeps: Parasite Positive, as well. And of course, if you’re into steam punk or World War II era or interesting views on Darwinism (or all of the above), Leviathan and the rest of that trilogy is a must-read!
