Salutations Publr friends and fiends,

We often receive printer samples of books that end up collecting dust on shelves. These are blank, perfect bound books that inspire and intimidate, but I still love them. I’m not sure if anyone else has the same fascination and love of blank books I do, but if you do – I HAVE GOOD NEWS! I’m giving away these three beautiful bound blanks books.

There are three books, pictured above:

- 9”x10” Hard Cover, text gloss interior pages (aprox. 80 – 120 pages)

-  9.5” x 7.5” Paperback, text gloss interior pages (aprox. 75 – 100 pages)

 -  5.25” x 4.25” paperback, matte interior pages (aprox. 150 – 200 pages)

Rules are simple:

You must like books. Any form. I’d love to hear about the books you love, your love of books, or books in general!

Reblogs are your entry!

Reblogs count up to 3 times!

No giveaway blogs please, but sharing is caring!

Three winners: The first person chosen gets to pick which one they want, I will number two their preference of the remaining and the third person gets left overs!

You must have an open ask box so I can request your information and be willing to share an address with me where I can ship.

I’ll be running this through October 14th – because Tuesdays need more spice to them.

Let the games begin!

You can do it! :D

Thanks! I already feel like I’m doing better than last year, when I started about a week before the paper was due and ended up scrambling the night before (typical)

Finally stopped procrastinating on the huge internship report I have to write that’s due in just over two weeks. Got a solid abstract experimental procedure done and well into the technical background. Still got the results and discussion to write and those are the hardest…



So I ordered Champion and I got a free $100 wine voucher??? With the purchase of a YA book??? I’m so confused???

I’ve been getting these with my Barnes and Noble orders lately. Not sure why.

Barnes and Noble always sends weird coupons with their orders. I’ve gotten wine vouchers, snack boxes, magazine subscriptions…

Want more writerly content? Make sure to follow for your daily dose of writer positivity, advice, and prompts!

Write the kind of story you would like to read. People will give you all sorts of advice about writing, but if you are not writing something you like, no one else will like it either.
- Meg Cabot  (via fictionwritingtips)

Not sure if it was the best idea to watch the new Doctor Who episode alone in the dark right before bed but there’s no backing down now.



Science has been severely misrepresented by authors. If you want to write about scientific worldviews accurately, here are some tips.

  • If a scientist saw something supernatural and could be assured it existed, they wouldn’t scream “that’s impossible!” or try to destroy it because it doesn’t fit their worldview. They would be more likely to say “How interesting. I wonder how this will change my theories. I’d better incorporate it into my worldview.”
  • Scientists have morals just like the rest of us. In fact, many people become scientists because they want to help humanity. How is that so hard to understand?
  • A whole lot of scientists love nature and want to preserve it.
  • Scientists who have helped to create deadly weapons almost always regret it. Politicians who order those weapons to be used don’t.
  • Science in general would be attracted to magic, not repulsed by it. A new thing to study with possible new applications to help mankind? How wonderful!
  • How well a scientist understands people and gets along socially is up to the individual. They’re not an entire profession of evil, cold robots.
