    If you’re like me, you’re always looking for dogs. I even surround myself with people that share this affinity. My friend Kyla, in fact, carries a measuring tape with her at all times in case she needs to find out how long a dog is. If a home without a dog is just a house, then a book without a dog is probably just a dissertation of some sort. I have another children’s book coming out in May 2021, Let's Find Momo Outdoors!, which is not in time for the holidays. So, I wanted to make a list for your holiday season of books that are available and wonderful. Of course, my big rule is there must be at least one dog in the book.

    The series we’ve been waiting for all year is finally on Netflix: Selena. Whether you’re a '90s kid who had Selena’s music on heavy rotation or someone who just discovered the wonder of the Queen of Tejano music, we’re happy you’re here. To celebrate this series, and to send ourselves on a musical blast from the past, we’re pairing some of our favorite Selena songs with some of our favorite books by Mexican-American novelists.

    It’s that time of year again. Yes, International Ninja Day is back and that means you can indulge in your favorite ninja content from documentaries and action movies to learning ninjutsu (it’s a real thing, not just from Naruto) and more accessible jujutsu (grappling, select weapon training). It’s also a good time to practice your stealth, whether that’s creeping past the creaky boards in your house without a sound or learning how to manipulate your writing to punch your readers in the gut with some surprisingly heartfelt content.

    Whether you’re practicing your own writing or interested in books that sneak up on you (like a well-trained ninja with a well-placed kunai to the throat) you’ll want to give these stories a try. Some have shocking twists, some tell you exactly what they’re about, but all leave you with some sort of feeling in your gut that you may not have seen coming.

    How did NaNoWriMo go, y’all? Did you hit that 1,667 words per day, or did you feel dread at the thought of even opening your novel's document?

    Yeah, us too.

    BUT...don’t fret! There are plenty of ways to “procrastinate” NaNoWriMo that you don’t have to feel bad about! Doing all of the below is just as important as writing the book...right? And you can keep working on your book, even if December is right around the corner.


Thanks for joining the Quirk fam! We can't wait to geek out with you.
