Quest For Happiness: Week Three

Week Three could probably be nicknamed "Week Redo" based on how little I actually stayed on track during Week Two--life tends to have the habit of surprising you and getting in the way. Cool thing is, there is no rule that says if you fall off the track, that you can't pick up right where… Continue reading Quest For Happiness: Week Three

My Quirks Using Beta Reader Feedback

In November, I wrote a blog post sending out a call for beta readers for two of my novels: THE RESISTANCE, an adult science fiction that's light on the sci and heavy on the gravestones; and ARTEMIS SMITH AND THE VIRTUOUS MARRIAGE QUEST, my favorite story that I've ever written about a staring artist who… Continue reading My Quirks Using Beta Reader Feedback

Waiting on Wednesday: The Olympian Affair

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine where we readers salivate over the books we wish were on our bookshelves yesterday. I know we're supposed to highlight books that we're stoked are being published, but this week, I'm taking it a step further and highlighting a book that hasn't even been written yet, but still is… Continue reading Waiting on Wednesday: The Olympian Affair

Quest for Happiness: Week Two

Let's jump right into it, shall we? Fitness: Long-term Goal: Shape the body I want and become healthier. Last Week's Goal: Go to the gym. Once. Status: Success! I didn't leave myself any room for error on this one. Tuesday was the first day I had time to go to the gym. When I got home, in-between jobs,… Continue reading Quest for Happiness: Week Two

Waiting on Wednesday: Oathbringer

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine where we readers salivate over the books we wish were on our bookshelves yesterday. This week, I'm drooling thinking about Brandon Sanderson's third installment of The Stormlight Archive, Oathbringer. There isn't a cover yet. Nor a synopsis. There are plenty of teasers and honest updates in Sanderson's 2016 State of the… Continue reading Waiting on Wednesday: Oathbringer

Steal the Sky

** Copy of Steal the Sky by Megan E. O'Keefe gloriously given by Agent Sam Morgan of Jabberwocky Literary Agency in exchange for an honest review** I did this book the greatest disservice I think you can do to a book: start it right in the middle of the holidays. I began reading Steal the Sky on December 12th,… Continue reading Steal the Sky

Quest for Happiness: Starting Week One

So, like so many people did (and I actually really enjoyed reading through all the posts), I wrote a Resolutions posts. And usually, I write it, feel really committed, last the month of January before my resolutions take a nose dive into the deep end and become lost in the murky waters, not revisited until the waters… Continue reading Quest for Happiness: Starting Week One

Book Tag

The This Is My Genre Book Tag!

When I was brainstorming ways to incorporate more posts onto this blog aside from my book reviews, I thought, "Oh, on Mondays, I could do a book tag every week!" It wasn't until I realized that you actually had to be tagged in order to do one that I knew that plan isn't going to exactly… Continue reading The This Is My Genre Book Tag!
