I’m headed out soon for a day of family and fun, but before I went, I wanted to put up something on the blog to keep you all busy. So here’s some of the books I’ve been reading and enjoying recently! Feel free to add your own recommendations in the comments. Andrew Mayne’s The Naturalist… Read More Book Recommendations and Other Things
Not my books. But the covers are my work, and the books are pretty good if I do say so. You should check them out! Shikari by Alma Boykin Adventure! Exploration! Martinus the m-dog! Lost cities and conspiracies! Strange creatures! And homework. Shikhari, the most-distant human colony world, home to the Staré and Auriga “Rigi”… Read More Books ‘n Stuff
You won’t want to miss this one. It’s not your run-of-the-mill fantasy. When Peter and I were talking about the cover, he described it to me as something that was influenced by his time in Africa and his reading of H Rider Haggard, and I was sold. It’s not just that I’m easy when it… Read More Peter Grant has a New Book!
I’m writing this in the science fiction present – the twenty-first century. The year is 2017, and while we may not have flying cars, personal jetpacks, or portals that instantly pop us out anywhere in the world we want to be, I do have a microwave, digital oven, the world-wide-web on my personal tablet with… Read More Vintage Kitchen: Making Antique Recipes in a Modern Era
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…

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
