Moreau House Teaser: Trojan & Vanity

Last week I introduced you to Cora, one of the new-ish characters in Moreau House. There are two other new characters in this book, and I love them both. My one regret in writing Moreau House is that I couldn't give them bigger roles. But who knows? Maybe they'll get a short story later on...(no… Continue reading Moreau House Teaser: Trojan & Vanity

Petite Critique: Hungry Demigods

Title: Hungry Demigods Author: Andrea Tang Genre: Adult urban fantasy Subgenre: n/a Length: Short story Rating: * * * * * I don't normally read short stories, let alone review them--especially from authors I'm unfamiliar with, but when I saw Andrea's pitch on Twitter, I knew I had to read it.

Moreau House Teaser: Cora

In contrast to all the new characters introduced in THE FERRYMEN, MOREAU HOUSE has a much more limited cast, which is honestly how I prefer to work--I like having a "closed set." Cora was first introduced in the short THE TEN OF CUPS (which can be found in THE NIGHT WARS COLLECTION). She and Isaiah… Continue reading Moreau House Teaser: Cora

Goals, Old and New

#MHMon: Screw it!

Some of the best things in my life have come from frustration. No, really. In 2008, after three years without something fluffy to keep me warm at night, I adopted Hermes. The furry monster is my baby, and I wouldn't trade him for anything. 2012 wasn't a good year for me. At all. I lost… Continue reading #MHMon: Screw it!

2017 A Year in Books

The last two years I have done SO MUCH reading. This is due in large part to having access to Overdrive audiobooks from the library, and spending long hours alone in an office. Plenty of time for audiobooks. This year, my goal was to read 1 more book than I did last year, putting my… Continue reading 2017 A Year in Books

Happy Holidays

No matter what you celebrate, I hope you have (or had) a wonderful holiday, with plenty of food and loved ones, whether you celebrate with a theme, or just by having a lie-in. (Yes, the Christmas tree is black. And yes, that is the eye of Sauron on top, with a chain of gold rings.… Continue reading Happy Holidays

#AuthorStats

A few weeks ago on Twitter, there was a tag floating around--#authorstats--to help show aspiring writers and authors some of the realities of publishing. I did answer the questionnaire on twitter, but even with the new 280 character limit, it wasn't enough space for me to really get in-depth, since, like a lot of writers,… Continue reading #AuthorStats
