  • Product Review – Amopé Pedi Perfect

    I’m not sure when the state of our heels became such a huge concern, but apparently it’s a big thing. Like. At some point in the past few years, someone realised that the true path to success is through baby-soft heels. To be clear, I’ve never had a pedicure in my life, so I don’t know […]

  • 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 […]

    I don’t know why she’s leaving, or where she’s going to go

    First, there was Alice. You have lived your whole life in the lap of storytellers; everything you have learned, everything you remember, is from stories told over and over. The reason we tell stories is because this is how we learn. History is nothing without the narrative; every religion began as a story – some […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Blog Tour

    I’ll be participating in a blog tour for Trilby Kent’s Stones for my Father. I’ve never done a blog tour before, and I’m not really sure what’s going to happen here, but on 28th April, something related to Kent’s book will appear at the centre of the universe.

  • 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 […]

  • Endings are Heartless

    I think the key to Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series is at the very end of the very last book. More importantly, I kind of feel like most of the world got completely ripped off with this series, and I’ll tell you why in a minute. One of the things that King says in […]
