  • Marny Finally Gets A Feyguard Book

    If you’ve been following my reviews of indie YA author Anthea Sharp’s Feyland and Feyguard books, you might remember this aside from my review of Royal: Marny continues to be everything. I really hope she gets her own Feyguard book complete with a worthy love interest, because she’s one of my favorite things about this series. […]

  • Olympus: Green Screen, Red Corn Syrup, And Blue Feet

    Hey, did you know Syfy has a new drama set in mythological Greece? No? Me neither, until my parents texted me while they were watching WWE on Thursday night and said I’d probably like this Olympus show that’s coming on afterward. I’m glad they did, because I had a great time watching the pilot, and I’m […]

  • Halloween 2014 recap

    Last year I blogged about my Halloween costume, so I figured I’d continue the tradition.

  • Cindy: The Kardashians Meet The Addams Family at Disneyworld

    So, I got an email the other day that began thusly: Larry Wilson here. I co-wrote and co-produced Beetlejuice, co-wrote The Addams Family, wrote and directed for six seasons of Tales from the Crypt. “Sure you did,” I thought. I found you through your blog’s review of The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy “Okay,” […]

  • 10 Books That Made An Impression On Me

    You’ve probably seen this challenge on Facebook already – list 10 books that have made an impression on you. When one of my friends tagged me last weekend, I decided to narrow it down to ten by focusing on books that I feel have influenced me as a writer. Here’s what I came up with, […]

  • The Quest: LARPing is now a televised competitive sport

    A few weeks ago I got the following text from my sister: Normally I don’t follow reality TV competitions. I’m not a snob about them, they just aren’t my thing. I’ve never seen a single episode of Survivor. Overall, I think I’ve watched more parodies of reality TV shows than actual reality TV shows. However, […]

  • The Fire Wish: Scheherazade Meets The CW

    Reviewing Royal last week put me in a YA fantasy mood. Hence this review of The Fire Wish, a new release by debut author Amber Lough. TL;DR – You’re either going to love it or hate it. I loved it. The Fire Wish is about two teenage girls in a mythical version of ancient Baghdad who switch places with […]

  • Royal: Return to Feyland

    Last year I reviewed Anthea Sharp‘s Feyland trilogy and the first book in her Feyguard spinoff series. Last month, Anthea sent me an advance review copy of the second Feyguard book, Royal. I unfortunately wasn’t able to finish it before the release date, but I enjoyed it as much as the rest of the series, and […]
