I know all of you are probably familiar with my love of this author, particularly his book CAM GIRL, especially if you watch any of my YouTube videos. When BAD BOY came out in December, I was all set to by it instantly, but was told it might help to read BLACK IRIS first, as … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: BLACK IRIS by Elliot Wake (writing as Leah Raeder)
I can't recall if I've shared this on here or not, but it's always been a bit of a personal favorite. I can't exactly say it's terribly good, but it was a good idea and I don't think I ever caught that lightning. I'll leave it for you, though. Half short story and half slam … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Flashback Edition, “Who Conditions the Air?”
There was a period in my life where I'm not sure I thought this day was ever going to come. Granted, the day I'm referring to isn't until tomorrow, but still. I've been a writer in one form or another since I was in...what, first or second grade? I got "serious" about it when I … Continue reading The Revolution Begins

I'm still really pleased with this, though, and it's started to give me some ideas for a book I've been wanting to write for years now. I'll let you be the judge of … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful Thursday – Labor of Love
A while back, I was talking to some people...I think on Twitter, about mailing lists and how they differ from blogs. After all, if you subscribe to a blog, you can have (I believe it's an opt-in/out function) the blog posts mailed to you. That's kinda like a newsletter, right? I say things here, and … Continue reading Let Me Talk To You. …No, More. MORE!
Since I attended (or rather, will attend, as of the writing of this review) one of Scalzi's book tour events on Friday the 24th (aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh) I figured it was probably a good idea to read at least something of his. Yeah, I'm a terrible SFF fan and up until now, I hadn't read anything of John … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: LOCK IN by John Scalzi
