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 […]

Another review up!

Review up!

| February 16, 2012

I’ve got another review up at Nevermet Press. Today, it’s a review of The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente. The book is a whimsical and darling story, and I’m seriously considering sending copies to my nieces and nephews for their birthdays this year. It’s also […]

Another review up!

Just a quick post today, to let you all know that my review of M. K. Hobson’s The Native Star is up on Nevermet Press today! I finished writing my next review last night, but I am waiting for Jeremy to take a look at it, and then I’ll give it one more read through […]

Friday Recap

| January 20, 2012

Since I’m doing the Write1Sub1 challenge this year, and also because one of the fine ladies from the retreat is checking in with the Seattle contingent weekly to see what we’ve done during the week, I’m taking a careful look at what I’ve accomplished each week. So here’s my first Friday Recap! I got two book […]

Review of Gaslight Arcanum

| January 19, 2012

Nevermet Press has started a new feature, Clockwork Reviews, and the first review up is by yours truly! I reviewed Gaslight Arcanum, which is an anthology of stories where Sherlock Holmes meets the supernatural.  So pop on over to the site to check out my review! I’ll have other reviews that will appear there in the […]

The Retreat Recap

| January 17, 2012

The Location: A beautiful rental property on Harstine Island. Overall, it was great! There were some minor oddities that could have become an issue, but didn’t. Like the fact that it only had 2 bathrooms, and only one of them had a shower! With 9 women in the house, that could have become disastrous, but […]
