Be Our Guest!

Good afternoon (evening?) everyone! Today, I had the opportunity to write a guest post for Two Ends of the Pen on books and first impressions. Here's an excerpt:

There is a scene in Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont in which an older woman is dressing up for dinner with complete strangers. As she adds a few finishing touches, she murmurs to herself, “First impressions.” Two simple words that summed up her entire mindset. First impressions are the same reason why we wear suits to job interviews and agonize over first dates. What we often forget, however, is that the concept extends beyond the physical into the realm of silent text. When facial expressions and innate charisma are taken away, we are stripped down to vocabulary and syntax; our only weapons are a message worth sharing and the tools with which to do so.

P.S. The giveaway for Raven's Heart, Vestal Virgin, and The Marlowe Conspiracy is still going. All three are some of my favorites since I started this blog, so you definitely want to enter. See the giveaway page for details.
