Saturday Night's Alright for Writing

I started this blog a few months ago for me. It was just somewhere for me to put my writing in case I wanted someone to see it. I have almost 100 followers now (which might not seem like much, but I never expected it) and if that many people are interested in what I have to say, I think it’s time for me to give this blog a little structure and consistency.

So for the next two weeks, it’s going to be running on bare bones (I really do hope that’s a saying) while I get set up for a complete blog overhaul. Nothing major is going to change – I will still be blogging reviews, writing about reading and sharing teasers. What is changing is my goals, or rather now I’m actually going to have goals. Hopefully it will give me more direction in what I’m reading and what…

Title: The Waiting Room

Author: Alysha Kaye

Publisher: Self-published

Publication date: July 1, 2014

Author’s twitter / Author’s blog / Author’s website

Alysha Kaye is an author and English teacher from Texas who provided me with a copy of her upcoming book in exchange for an honest review. As an English teacher myself, I felt an obligation to support her in her novelistic endeavor – plus, her book sounded amazing. So without further ado, here are my thoughts on The Waiting Room, which turned out to be an absolute delight to read.

First, a brief summary from the author’s website:

Jude and Nina are the epitome of that whole raw, unflinching love thing that most people are jealous of. That is, until Jude dies and wakes up in The Waiting Room, surrounded by other souls who are all waiting to pass over into their next life. But unlike those…

Review #5 for THE WAITING ROOM

Standard

“I don’t think there’s a soul that has walked this earth and not wondered what happens after we die, and whether we will get to see our loved ones once we pass on, and that alone made me really love the topic of the book.”
5th review of THE WAITING ROOM, coming all the way from Australia:)

Calling all book bloggers! Where y’all at?

Looking for any and all willing bloggers/reviewers/critics (What do you like to be called?! Geez.) – I’d love to send a copy of my novel, The Waiting Room, to you for consideration!

A little bit about my novel and I (isn’t it cute how we sound like a couple?)

About the author:
Alysha Kaye was born in San Marcos, TX, where she also received her BA in Creative Writing from Texas State University. She worked in marketing for a brief and terrible cubicle-soul-sucking time until she was accepted into Teach for America and promptly moved to Oahu. She taught 7th grade English in Aiea for two years and also received her Masters in Education from University of Hawaii. She now teaches in Austin, TX and tries to squeeze in as much writing as possible between lesson planning. She dreamt about The Waiting Room once, and offhandedly wrote her boyfriend a love poem about waiting for him after death. Somehow, that became a novel.

Summary of The Waiting Room:
Jude and Nina are the epitome of that whole raw, unflinching love thing that most people are jealous of. That is, until Jude dies and wakes up in The Waiting Room, surrounded by other souls who are all waiting to pass over into their next life. But unlike those souls, Jude’s name is never called by the mysterious “receptionist”. He waits, watching Nina out of giant windows. He’s waiting for her. What is this place? How long will he wait? And what will happen when and if Nina does join him? The Waiting Room is a story of not just love, but of faith, predestination, and philosophy, friendship and self-actualization, of waiting.
