A Year in Reading: 2021

Hey, remember I was totally shocked by how much I read last year? A whopping 258 books? 2021 was apparently my time to shine. And by shine, I mean completely immerse myself in fictional worlds. How did I pull this off? A few reasons come to mind. My day job finally got rid of itsContinue reading “A Year in Reading: 2021”

November Wrap-Up & December Goals

As 2022 barrels down on us, I can say two things with certainty: 1) I still dislike cold weather; and 2) If the Kindle Unlimited price ever goes up, it’s probably my fault. But good news! In 3 weeks, I’ll be headed to warmer waters (literally) for a much-needed true vacation. And the best partContinue reading “November Wrap-Up & December Goals”

October Wrap-Up & November Goals

I’m writing this on Halloween, my second-favorite holiday of the year, which marks exactly 60 days until New Year’s Eve, which is my favorite holiday of the year. I’m looking forward to dressing up in a bit and helping my mom give out candy at her house. Then, I shall endeavor to get a goodContinue reading “October Wrap-Up & November Goals”

September Wrap-Up & October Goals

Everyone should have a home away from home, and mine is apparently at my friends’ house near Atlanta, Georgia. Which means another road trip in the TARDIS! The spouse and I are down south again for few quiet days before a weekend at a fancy lakeside cabin with friends and board games (and alcohol). IContinue reading “September Wrap-Up & October Goals”

August Wrap-Up & September Goals

The spouse and I spent a good chunk of August on the road, visiting friends in Atlanta and family in Florida. We stayed as safe as possible (even if we were the only ones wearing a mask in many, many gas stations), but had to treat ourselves to a trip to Kennedy Space Center whileContinue reading “August Wrap-Up & September Goals”

July Wrap-Up & August Goals

First, the obvious news that I’ve been shouting about for a month now: Steel Justice (Steel Empires #6) is live! I’ve already heard from a few people how much they are enjoying my take on a murder mystery set in my urban fantasy/alternate history universe, so I hope you give it a chance, too. Amazon | BarnesContinue reading “July Wrap-Up & August Goals”

May Wrap-Up & June Goals

It’s a gorgeous day outside, and summer is my favorite season, so I’m here to celebrate a great month and look forward to an even better one. I am now fully vaccinated, so I got to hang out with my best friend in person for the first time in nearly 18 months, along with planningContinue reading “May Wrap-Up & June Goals”

April Wrap-Up & May Goals

It’s been a quiet month here at Casa Siamese, with all the big news over in the spouse’s department.

February Wrap-Up & March Goals

February is already a short month, and being productive made it feel even shorter. Or maybe that was the old-fashioned cold that laid me up for a week of it. Major changes lately include settling into my new multi-computer setup for officially working from home full-time, setting up the new mattress and bed frame thatContinue reading “February Wrap-Up & March Goals”
