A Wonderful New Review for LEX TALIONIS in Caribbean Beat Magazine

I'm really over the moon about this one! Caribbean Beat magazine is produced by Caribbean Airlines and given away free on every flight they have, both in and out of the Caribbean, for two months. I'm extremely lucky and grateful to be included in their bookshelf. In the past, I've heard about great books like … Continue reading A Wonderful New Review for LEX TALIONIS in Caribbean Beat Magazine

Excerpt from LEX TALIONIS Sequel: Iacta Alea Est – Analise Mentions An Old Friend

I allowed myself to become completely distracted by "So You Think You Can Dance" so my post is late today. And because I'm being lazy, I've decided to give you a little excerpt from my other Work In Progress. This is from the sequel to LEX TALIONIS, which I'm calling IACTA ALEA EST (The Die … Continue reading Excerpt from LEX TALIONIS Sequel: Iacta Alea Est – Analise Mentions An Old Friend

Because We Are Awesome

Recently I've been reading some great, eye-opening pieces about women and our astounding contributions to society. Sometimes women and the great things they do have been acknowledged, sometimes not, but always, we have been here. Here is a really great piece by Kameron Hurley about how women have always been a living, breathing part of history, whether … Continue reading Because We Are Awesome

I managed to get my work done, but I was lucky enough to be one … Continue reading Still Here and Still Working

Click Bait, Or Why Slate Should Be Embarrassed About That YA Article

Because really, let's face it. That article was click bait. Pure, unadulterated, shameless, manipulative click bait. (Which, by the way, is why I'm not linking to it). Sure, Ruth Graham just decided to write a stunningly dismissive post about adults needing to be ashamed of reading YA--which has a very obvious framework around 'The Fault … Continue reading Click Bait, Or Why Slate Should Be Embarrassed About That YA Article

Starred Review for Lex Talionis on Publishers Weekly!

This was going to be a post about the best trailers I'd seen recently, I swear. But then I found out that Publishers Weekly had reviewed Lex Talionis. And they loved it. So I thought that just might be a tiny bit more interesting that Paul Haggis' new film. Now excuse me while I quietly … Continue reading Starred Review for Lex Talionis on Publishers Weekly!
