Celebrate the Freedom to Read with Jewel Quinlan #BannedBooksWeek

September 27 - October 3

It's BANNED BOOKS WEEK and we're recognizing this important eek with BANNED BOOK features from our authors. 

Please welcome Jewel Quinlan, author of BOY TOY, The Cougar Journals Book 2!

As an author I can tell you that the creative process is one that needs to be free. Our imaginations have to have the freedom to explore the human experience whether that means writing about true love and miracles or the darker side of reality which makes are characters true to life and relatable. The categories and restrictions that pop up, as a result of a bookstore trying to make its rows easier to figure out, or a publisher trying to follow a trend, change from year to year and often feel random.
Right when everyone thinks they have figured out the magical criteria for what makes a bestseller—bam!—one pops up that doesn’t meet any of it and a trends explodes in a vertical direction from what the publishing world thought it would. I think some of the best ideas are born when we let ourselves roam free on the plains of our imagination and capture on paper what speaks to our hearts. Although sometimes structure can be helpful in guiding an author to fulfill their vision, limitations have no place there. I for one will continue to write what my soul dictates I share with you because that’s where I think some of the best ideas are born.
