Hi there! I'm Little Willow. I'm a bookseller, writer, actress, singer, and director. I'm also a freelance journalist, publicist, and webdesigner.

This blog, for the most part, pertains to books: book reviews, exclusive interviews with authors, press releases, and booklists. Though my journal has an emphasis on YA fiction, I also read and review adult fiction, juvenile fiction, and non-fiction.

Drop by the Bildungsroman website, which acts as an archive.

If you would like permission to reprint any of my articles or reviews, please email me: littlewillow(at)slayground(dot)net

For samples of my work as a webdesigner, visit rocktherock.com If you are interested in having me design your website, please email me: littlewillow(at)slayground(dot)net

So many books, so little time! When time allows, I read about a book a day, but I do not review every book I read. Please do not be offended if I turn down your book request. My free time is very scarce.

Many of my book reviews have been posted at Amazon.

Your Girl offers tidbits about things I like and things I've done, as well an archive of icons and wallpapers. If you would like to use any of my icons at your journal, please do the following:
- Credit "slayground" in your LJ icon keywords.
- Post a comment letting me know which icon(s) you are using.
- Do not directly source the image. Upload it to your journal instead.
- If you would like a base customized, simply ask.

Have a moment? Select five or six words that describe me at Johari, then view my Johari window.
