A BLOG FOR READERS AND WRITERS
Marie here. How many times have you read a book that spent so much time on flowery prose or psychological musings that the plot was lost? I have read a few myself. It’s like those people, you know the ones, who spend so much time trying to impress you with their extensive vocabulary but aren’tContinue reading “The Basics, Basically”
Aurora here. No, we’re not reviewing The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The other Sabrina. No, not the 90’s Sabrina the Teenage Witch. The other, other Sabrina, the Indonesian film on Netflix. I’m a horror movie buff, and, yeah, I’ll even watch the terrible ones. I give Sabrina 11 out of 10 stars. Mmhm. It’s myContinue reading “Hollow Hills Reviews Sabrina”
Today we will interview one of the authors from our anthology, STILL STANDING. Garrison Kelly is the author of the short fantasy story “Savage Beatings.” He also has a story in our upcoming anthology for 2020. Welcome, Garrison. HH: What inspired you to become a writer? GK: When I was a little kid, I originallyContinue reading “Author Interview: Garrison Kelly”
Marie here. I touched on this topic in a previous post about writing rituals, but I wanted to explore it a bit more today. Music has been a monumental influence on me my entire life. Like most people I know, I can identify a decade in my life by the music I was listening toContinue reading “Music and Writing”

We give very specific notes throughoutContinue reading “Sale on Editing Services”
Aurora here. I don’t know if it’s the time of year, or perhaps it’s because I’ve spent a great deal of time discussing in-progress anthology submissions with other authors, but I’ve spoken with quite a few who are not so thrilled with their work. This also includes one visual artist. Off topic: NowContinue reading “Artistic Self-Loathing aka Hollow Hills and the Cursed Anthology”
It is release day for Marie’s newest book, Squeeze Your Heart. This urban fantasy romance is sexy, fun, and definitely NSFW! Check out the summary below. It has been over a year since Melissa was divorced and she is ready for some fun in her life. As a single mother in a world where “other”Continue reading “New Release: Squeeze Your Heart”
Marie here. Today I want to talk about developing characters of different ages. Yes, I named this post after a Blink 182 song. Don’t hate. I often read adult fiction that may feature a child or teenager. Well, yeah, adult books can’t only have adults as characters; that would be ridiculous. The problem is, authorsContinue reading “What’s My Age Again?”
Aurora here. As writers, we have entire worlds in our heads. A lot is happening in these worlds and we struggle frantically to get all the relevant parts of them onto the page. For some reason, I get the image of a kitten entangled in several balls of yarn, mewling helplessly. Okay, maybe that’s justContinue reading “Importance of Editors and Beta Readers”
