It wasn't only the narration, which is really top tier, but also the energy of the story itself that made me... Continue Reading →


This Week in Reading: Southern Gothic, How-To Feed Your Hero, Young Nobles With a Touch of Fey, and Witchery

This week I'm finishing up two books from last week before starting a couple of new ones. I'm about twenty percent through What Kings Ate and Wizards Drank by Krista D. Ball.

NaNoWriMo and the Diversity in SFF Debate

In the last week since the NaNoWriMo site has been revamped, I've been spending some (probably more than is wise) time poking around in the forums, especially the fantasy forums, because, hey, that's my thing. I've been keeping an eye on one thread in particular called 'What do you want to see more of in... Continue Reading →
