June Wrap-Up & July Goals

I just got home from another fantastic visit to Seton Hill University for the annual In Your Write Mind workshop. I had a blast. I’m exhausted. Let’s do this. In case you missed it, the cover reveal for Steel Shadows (Steel Empires #5) was announced this month! Isn’t it beautiful? Pre-orders are now available, and […]

2019 Resolution Project: Magic Bites (Kate Daniels #1) by Ilona Andrews

My 2019 Resolution Project over at my other blog, Speculative Chic, is to read the entire Kate Daniels urban fantasy series by Ilona Andrews, finishing up with a first read of the final book in the series. I’ve read the first book, Magic Bites, before, but never officially reviewed it. You can find my full review […]

November Wrap-Up & December Goals

This month, it feels like I wrote all the words, read all the books, and went to all the conventions. Okay, it’s actually about 32k words, 15 novels, 8 short stories, 3 graphic novels, and 2 conventions. Still a hell of a month. Obviously, that 32k words means that I did NOT “win” NaNoWriMo. As […]

Review: Many Waters (Time Quintet #4) by Madeleine L’Engle

As I’m completing a resolution to review the rest of the books in this series this year, I was happy to return to the book that I read multiple times while growing up despite missing all the rest. You can find my full review of Many Waters at Speculative Chic. An excerpt: I may not have […]

Review: A Swiftly Tilting Planet (Time Quintet #3) by Madeleine L’Engle

Continuing this year’s journey to rectify a series I definitely should have read while I was growing up, I recently reviewed A Swiftly Tilting Planet for Speculative Chic. You can find my full review here. An excerpt: L’Engle has taken her previous ventures regarding science and brought them to an entirely new level here. Something about […]

Review: A Wind in the Door (Time Quintet #2) by Madeleine L’Engle

My 2018 Resolution Project for Speculative Chic was to read and review both the novel and film versions of A Wrinkle in Time. But I’m a completionist, so it should come as no surprise that I’d have to continue on this magical journey I somehow missed when I was a teenager. 

Review: A Wrinkle in Time (Time Quintet #1) by Madeleine L’Engle

I read this novel for my 2018 Resolution Project over at Speculative Chic, the other blog I contribute to. This year, I resolved to fill a gap in my knowledge of the science-fiction classics and read the book before the film comes out in March. I succeeded! You can find my full review at Speculative […]

My Favorite Things at Speculative Chic: STEEL BLOOD Blog Tour Stop #1

On stop #1 of the Steel Blood blog tour, head over to my second home on the internet, Speculative Chic, to learn about some of my very favorite things. Here’s a sneak peak: Traditional space ships are cool and all, but there’s just something more magical and special about a strange blue box. Though I […]

March Wrap-Up & April Goals

I’m having one of those awkward moments where I feel like I got absolutely nothing accomplished all month, even though I still managed a lot. Perhaps it’s because everything that did happen was all toward the first 2/3 of the month (such as trips to Ohio for Cleveland ConCoction and New York City for the […]

February Wrap-Up & March Goals

Whew, this month flew by (and not just because February is a short month). While things continue to be rough and stressful in the larger scheme of things, I’m pleased with what I accomplished in my own small corner of the world, and I’m looking forward to whatever is next. I’d also like to take […]
