About Us

Amanda and Ashley are readers in Asheville, NC. One teaches 5th grade and the other teaches 7th grade. One is 26 and the other is 32. They have a fabulous beagle named Lucy, a mastiff puppy named Boomer, and they bring books with them wherever they go. Both Amanda and Ashley prefer to read young adult and children's novels - especially fantasy/sci-fi series books. Ashley loves reading about zombies and vampires, but Amanda thinks they're just okay.

  1. Amanda, there aren't any Comments boxes on your AtoZ Challenge. BTW: I love your posts for the challenge.
    Is the lack of comment boxes related to problems with them? When I first "met" you I sent a comment and signed up to receive comments from your site. Those I got were from an obvious hacker so I ID'd them as such to Google.

  2. Hmmm... I'm seeing comment boxes on all my posts, and receiving wonderful comments each day. The comments link is at the top of each post. Maybe I should change that, the bottom is more traditional...
    Thanks for helping with my war on spam!

  3. Hey, Amanda. You read my book and reviewed it on goodreads(The Foxes of Caminus). At the time, you suggested an editor and said you would like to reread the book. Since then, I've retitled the book The Gin Entanglement. If you are interested, please contact me at author@burroughsbooks.com and I will send the new manuscript. Thanks.
