  • Iskocēs Tipiskak: A Spark in the Dark – Book Review

    Have you ever had one of those experiences where something comes at you out of the dark and ends up being a pleasant surprise? A time where you weren’t expecting anything but something happened anyway? Or when a complete stranger found you and you ended up kind of grokking each other? I think of the […]

  • Burn Blog Tour – Saying Goodbye

    I’ve been putting this off for as long as I can. I’m not…good…with goodbyes. I’m a ghoster; a master of what in my family was called “the Irish farewell”, which was to simply leave the room innocuously when nobody was looking, so as to leave without making a huge deal of leaving. It bothers the […]

  • Hold my beer and read this

    Hold my beer and read this

    I was supposed to be making Easter dinner. I was supposed to be cleaning the house and preparing for houseguests and being a good host. Then I picked up this book. I rescheduled pretty much everything, because there was, simply, no way in hell I was going to stop reading for something as silly as […]

  • Shimmer: a blog tour

    Shimmer: a blog tour

    There’s about to be a second war on earth for the kingdom of heaven, and Gaby and her brother are the only ones who can prevent it. Or else they’re the ones who tried to start it. Things are a little confusing since it’s only been a week or so since Gaby found out she […]

  • Haze: a blog tour

    Haze: a blog tour

    I know you remember when I did the blog tour for Aussie author Paula Weston’s Shadows. I have been waiting and waiting and waiting to read the next book in the series. Well. To be honest, I’ve just been waiting and waiting. I mean it SEEMS like a super long time, but really, it’s only […]

  • Shadows: a Blog Tour

    Recently, I heard about Tundra Books doing a blog tour for Paula Weston’s “Shadows”.  I have done a blog tour for Tundra Books before, and it was a great experience. So I jumped at the chance. I wasn’t familiar with Paula Weston before becoming part of the tour. This is a shameful oversight which I […]

  • Amazing Stories Blog Tour

    As part of the Amazing Stories Blog Team, I have completed a book review for a blog tour. The review was published today. I’d like to point out that the first story in the collection I reviewed (called Tomorrow: Apocalyptic Short Stories from Australian publisher Kayelle Press) was penned by a friend of mine from […]

  • Gossip

    I’ve just learned how to gossip. I mean, not *just* now; in the last few months. I was never much for gossip when I was pupating, because I didn’t really get the point. I guess I still don’t…not *really*…I mean, talking about one another and being concerned about one another is a way to strengthen […]

  • Stones for my Father

    A while back, I learned about a new book tour. More specifically, it was a book tour that would be taking place entirely in the, as they say, ‘blogosphere’. This isn’t the first blog book tour that’s ever been done, but it’s the first one I’ve got to take part in. Now, let’s just step […]

  • Some things are better left unread

    I got into this discussion twice in the last week. Granted, once was because I started the discussion, but still. A while ago, a friend of mine suggested I read a certain book. It was, the friend said, a favourite. The sort of book one reads over and over so that none of it is […]
