This isn’t going to be a long post – it’s a long day, and much to do in it. But I was musing on something and wanted your input on it as well. I’ve been reading (almost finished) a book called The Bone Woman by Clea Koff, which is the memoir of a young woman… Read More In defense
Some days are like that. Some weeks are a blur. Some months make you wonder where they went. Some years are gone in a flash. It seems the old I get, the faster time flies past. I can’t believe we’re more than half-way through this year. I can’t believe that the new school year is… Read More Some Days…
My latest title, Snow in Her Eyes, is available for sale! The cover is a clickable link to buy (or borrow with Kindle Unlimited) Detective Amaya Lombard is a witch hunter and a damn good one. Hated by the magical because she works with cops, feared by cops because she works with magic, she walks… Read More Snow has Fallen!
I plan to publish this one during the first week of August, but this is what the cover will likely look like. Feel free to drop your thoughts in the comments, I always appreciate feedback. Detective Amaya Lombard is a witch hunter and a damn good one. Hated by the magical because she works with… Read More Cover Reveal!
I must confess, I have been a somewhat cranky reader recently. Here’s the thing: I hear complaints about the quality of books available in KU all the time. Having my own in that pool makes me wince a little when I see those criticisms. But… It’s all true. You know what else is true?… Read More Books to Avoid: Cranky Book Reviews
My first comment on this book is about the price. For a book whose purported audience is the working and welfare poor from Appalachia, the price set at 15.99 for ebook is a slap in the face. I don’t usually review a book on price, but in this rare case, it matters. JD Vance’s treatise,… Read More Review: Hillbilly Elegy
We have been discussing what to do with books for some time. We have less than I once owned, and more than he had when I moved into his house. Which means it is more than we want to move (again) but less than we’d like to have at our fingertips if we’re researching something. … Read More Bibliophilia
To my dismay, I discovered when a reader brought it to my attention that this was one of the posts that fell into the ‘blog hole’ when I switched browsers. It’s definitely a book worth reading, so again, I commend it to your attention… I have been working on this book since… longer than I… Read More Repost: Chaplain’s War
If you read my post over at Mad Genius this morning, you’ll note that I finished my in-paper nightstand book last night. I’ve been working on it for an embarassingly long time, since I usually read ebooks before bed. This one has been my soaky-bath book. Demon of the Waters is the ‘true story of… Read More Book Review: Demon of the Waters
I’ve been reading non-fiction lately, rather than fiction. Some of it has been for research, other books have simply been because I ran across them and they sounded interesting. Which is why I read The Big Burn. Somewhat grandiosely subtitled “Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire that Saved America,” the book is the story of the… Read More Book Reviews: Big Burn and River War
It’s finally here. Two years after I’d planned, but it’s been an eventful two years! Dorothy Grant was gracious enough to write a blurb for me… she’s the queen of blurbage! Tanager’s Fledglings When the starship’s captain died midway through a run with a cargo of exotic animals, the owner gave first mate Jem one… Read More New Arrival
I’ve been hard at work on the cover for the Tanager’s Fledglings, and I’m finally getting excited for this book. I’ve got three cover versions, below, that are similar. Now, I just have to pick one…
