As usual I posted a TELL ME TUESDAY.

I started reading my hardcover of A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC, which by the way is the best book I have read so far this year, and thought the ink smelled faintly of roses (if you keep the book closed and sniff the page edges it seems more apparent to me). If you have read the book you know the significance of this. I tweeted about it to the author and her only "reply" was to re-tweet it. What do you think that means?
*UPDATE: Oh my goodness, I didn't think this question read like I was irked she didn't answer! Nooooooo... V.E. answers us on Twitter all the time! In fact that's why I questioned the RT; was it a nod to yes, the ink does have rose essence in it, or was she just tickling mystery?
I traded a signed Dorothy Must Die for it. Best trade EVER!
I also learned that if the author's books say V.C. Schwab they are Adult Fiction, and if they say Victoria Schwab, they are YA.
I found out that my most anticipated book this year (now that The Raven King was pushed back to January), OF DELICATE PIECES (the sequel to Of Breakable Things), which had already been pushed to August from May, is now pushed back to OCTOBER! And not even a cover to gaze at longingly.
I upped my Goodreadss challenge from 52 to 104 books, and am at 68 right now.
I did a redesign on my Middle Grade blog and changed the name from Mom in the Middle (boring), to PAPER DRAGONS, in preparation for my big Harry Potter homage post. I have started working on the post and plan to go live with it on July 31st, Harry and JKR's birthdays. Plus there will be a giveaway.

An elderly woman was the last speaker of her Native American tongue, and took it upon herself to type a complete dictionary using one finger. You can view a short documentary about it, HERE.
In your opinion, what is the difference between a writer and an author? I was wondering because someone on Twitter was referring to themselves as an "author" because they are submitting manuscripts. I was under the impression an author was a published writer.
Have a wonderful week!
