Review of Iron Edda: Sveidsdottir

| August 16, 2017

My latest review is up at Mad Scientist Journal today. This one is for a Norse steampunk fantasy novel that was funded through a Kickstarter a few years ago. It’s been waiting on my Kindle for quite some time, but I only just got to read it! You can check out my review here!

Review of Starfall

| August 9, 2017

My latest review for Mad Scientist Journal is Jessie Kwak’s novella, Starfall. It’s the first in a series of novellas, but the second is already out, in case you’re the type who doesn’t want to wait to read the sequel. You can check out my review here!

Mini-Reviews of Comic Books

| August 2, 2017

My comic book stack has gotten ridiculous, so I’ve been reading some of them before I go to bed, when I’m not reading a book that I need to review. While I haven’t posted many in the past week, since I’ve been travelling and didn’t bring my comics with me, I’ve been writing some mini-reviews […]

Review and such

| April 12, 2012

First off, I’ve got another review up, this one of Akata Witch. Writing has been glacial recently. I’d say I haven’t had a lot of time, but that’s really only partially true. Mostly, I just need to buckle down on some revisions, which I’m hoping to do tonight and over the weekend. I also need […]

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 […]

A late recap

| March 12, 2012

I forgot to post my weekly recap on Friday, so here it is today instead! This past week was mostly one for editing and reviewing. The only writing I got done was one section of a short story I was working on, though I’ve decided since that I’m going to shelve that story for a […]
