My Crazy Corner featured me on Wednesday as part of the 2013 YA Blogfest. My Post, Power to the Females, was all about strong female characters. An excerpt:
Lately, I see a generation of women who are only getting stronger and savvier. That's not to say they don't struggle with indecision and tough choices, but they seem to be tackling them with a stronger sense of self than even a generation ago. What I do not want is a book with a main female character who whines all the time, can't make her own decisions, and has no self-confidence.

Right now, you can enter to win a paperback of Sixty Days of Grace by Dorothy Ruppert. A snippet from the book's summary: In today's world, women desperately struggle to meet the unrealistic expectations of others and of themselves. Society tells women they can do it all, and yet they instinctively know they do not have the resources to accomplish all the demands placed upon them. Drawing on their own strength is not enough; in order to survive, women must draw on God.
