Hot Lead, Cold Iron

**Copy of Hot Lead, Cold Iron by Ari Marmell received from Agent Sam Morgan from Jabberwocky Literary Agency in exchange for an honest review** Despite how many times I referred to this book, both mentally and aloud, as Hot Iron, Cold Lead, it remains--actually titled Hot Lead, Cold Iron--a bloody fantastic read. Let's just be up front and… Continue reading Hot Lead, Cold Iron

I’m Not Serious About This, Am I?

Last year, I wrote a post in February where I talked about my writing goals for the upcoming year. If you fancy a trip down memory lane, hit up here.

When I moved out and went to college, Netflix and I were tight-knit as you could be. That was my main hobby; binging TV… Continue reading Falling Back In Love With Television

Hiccups

Life is full of them; hiccups, I mean. Of course, this post is tailored to a specific hiccup in my current life--two, actually, if we want to be more precise: hiccups in running and in writing. You see, both are commitments that I have made to myself to do consistently, because they are important to… Continue reading Hiccups
