Want to hear me read stories?

| June 5, 2018

Would you rather have someone read you a story, or read it yourself? If you prefer the former, have you considered backing my Patreon? I’m getting close to my first goal, which involves a monthly video reading from me for my patrons! So if you back, you’ll get to see my face reading my words. […]

Have You Checked Out My Patreon Lately?

| May 10, 2018

If you like reading what I write, have you considered backing my Patreon? I’m getting close to my first goal, which involves a monthly video reading from me for my patrons! So if you back, you’ll get to see my face reading my words. And while I can make no promises about the helpfulness of […]

Belated post about a review and other reading

| April 3, 2012

Since I was out of town when my latest review on Nevermet Press went live, I didn’t post about it. But you can find my review of Ghosts By Gaslight there! I gave myself a short break from reading for reviews so that I could finish the Hunger Games series. I read Catching Fire and […]

Reading: Nightlight and M for Magic

| May 6, 2011

Having finally had a night to sit and read, I managed to make it through two books! Compared to my usual woefully inadequate book consumption, this is a big accomplishment. It did not, however, make any apparent dent in the stacks of books I still need to read. Nightlight is a Twilight parody, and it […]

Reading Notes: HP7

| February 22, 2011

So I’m WAY behind on the whole Harry Potter craze, because I patently refused to read them when they came out, mainly because they were so popular. Yes, I have been known to be rather contrary. 🙂 But now I’m reading Deathly Hallows, and I’m almost to the point where I’ll be able to say […]
