The Wolf Witch is Available for Pre-order!

*taps microphone* I finally finished The Wolf Witch. *collapses* If you’ve been following me for some time, you know that 2018 wasn’t my year.  I hit a mental low due to things being frustratingly beyond my control, and this poor book suffered for it. I rewrote it in its entirety (all 53,000 words of it)Continue reading “The Wolf Witch is Available for Pre-order!”

In A Duke in Disguise, we get a long-lost nobleman, a saucy book about historical figures, and a woman who loves cheese nearly as much as I do.

The only thing thatContinue reading “Reading Rec: A Duke in Disguise”

In Defense of Small Word Counts

Let me let you in on a little secret. I don’t write a lot of words per day. My daily word counts vary from 350 to 700 on a good day, but I almost never break 1,000 words unless I’m at the very end the book because the resolution is often easy for me toContinue reading “In Defense of Small Word Counts”

2018 Reading Recap

It’s finally 2019, so I can officially say I read 105 works in 2018. I say works because a handful were short stories and some were graphic novels.

Good Riddance to 2018

To be blunt, 2018 was an exhausting train wreck that I am glad to see the back of. More than anything, I try to be a positive person for my own sanity and those around me, but this year has tested my resolve. It wasn’t like I had any deaths in my family or anyContinue reading “Good Riddance to 2018”

Reading Rec: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein

The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White reframes Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to show Victor for who he truly is. It’s rare that I read a rewrite or retelling that I truly love, but The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein (to be called TDDoEF from here out) does an absolutely fabulous job of makingContinue reading “Reading Rec: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein”
