Thank You

My second novel is out in the world, and I want to thank everyone who has already taken the time to buy it and read it. Last year when my first novel was published, I hadn’t even formed the plot for Diving In–didn’t even think I would write a direct sequel. But now here it […]

Book Review: Foreign Identity

I have to confess something. I’m not sure what exactly I just read, but I really enjoyed it. I guess if I had to classify it as anything, I would call Foreign Identity by Becca J. Campbell a sci-fi mystery thriller romance. It begins with two strangers waking up chained to a wall with no […]

Book Review: The Alloy of Law

Some of you may have gathered that I’m kinda into Steampunk right now. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find many Steampunk novels that I can really enjoy. I’m not positive what it is, but the whole corsets and goggles thing doesn’t really tranlate well onto paper in my book. So other than Scott Westerfeld, […]

Book Review: Atonement

I picked up Atonement by Ian McEwan on the suggestion of a fellow editor, so I was prepared in every way to like this book. However, I was hugely disappointed. I understand why so many people think that it was a great book, but I myself cannot bring myself to praise it. This review contains […]

Book Reviews: Bite Me and Persona Non Grata

You may have noticed by now that May was a pretty busy time for me. The entire month felt pretty much like finals week in college, and I haven’t felt that way in, well, two years. It was not a happy feeling, and it reminded me how glad I am to be grownup now and […]

Book Review: Dracula

I finished Dracula this week. Finally. I have wasted month of reading merely to tell you: I hated it. No, it wasn’t becuase it was very slow and written in epistolary format. It wasn’t becuase the characters were lame and took over four hundred pages to capture Dracula. It wasn’t because the ending felt very anticlimactic or because I […]

Colors of Deception Available Now!

I actually feel a little guilty with my announcement from yesterday in light of recent Consortium Books events.  That’s because it’s not my time to shine yet–it’s Courtney’s! But I wrote yesterday’s post a few days early, and then I found out on Wednesday that Courtney Cantrell‘s novel Colors of Deception was released on Kindle and other e-readers this […]

Review: Terra Incognita

It was hard for me to slough off the behemoth carcass of Fall of Giants after devouring it last month, which is why it has taken so long for me to digest a new book.  Finally, after getting over a week behind in my reading schedule, I knew there was only one author who could […]
