The One Where You Help An Author

My book is coming out this year. That is still a little surreal to say, but I'm excited. That's not really what this post is about, though. No, this post is about America's greatest past time. Reading. The world has changed. Bookstores are disappearing and, now more than ever, people are turning to the Internet… Continue reading The One Where You Help An Author

Book Breakdown: Daughter of Smoke and Bone

I haven't done one of these in awhile, mainly because I'm now an "official" reviewer for Fresh Fiction (bomb diggity!). What that means for you is you'll have to go there for my more timely reviews.

Book Breakdown: Little Brother

I’m talking about something more frightening than lolcats (not that lolcats aren’t terrifying)… Anyway, thanks to Cory Doctorow, I’ve spent the last two days in a state of look-over-the-shoulder paranoia.

You know, and maybe some other stuff, but it was mostly the roads. I’ve been hunting the shelves for the past couple months. I’m actually very… Continue reading Book Breakdown: Mistwood

Book Breakdown: Throat

I’m not afraid to admit it. I’m a sucker for vampires (haha, bad pun), but seriously… You really, really, really, really have to screw with the vampire myth to make me stop reading. Your vampires go out in sunlight? I’m cool with that. Your vampires are fat? I’m cool with that. Your vampires actually suck… Continue reading Book Breakdown: Throat

Book Breakdown (and a free something!)

I’m going to do it! I’m going to give something away on my blog! It’s a copy of Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore. Why? Because you should read it. And, filing this in the “easier to ask forgiveness” category, it will be signed. By the author. Not by me. Sound good? Okay, I think the best… Continue reading Book Breakdown (and a free something!)
