Encrypted, Enigma, and Decrypted are the three books in Lindsay Buroker’s Forgotten Ages series. These are set in the same world as the Emperor’s Edge, but many years earlier. I think I got one of these in a Storybundle, and
Paperbacks; aren’t they nice to have? Recent events have made me think more about paperback (softcover) editions, and I thought I’d ask you for your thoughts. Next month I’ll review my first year of selling my paperbacks at Craft Fairs.
Solitude. I had no idea what I was going to write for this prompt from KL Caley at New2writing.com. After I set up the post I finished reading one book and started on Femina, which I’m reviewing at the end
Small Miracles caught my eye when it came through on the Netgalley email update. I generally avoid anything with a hint of religion in it, but this sounded great fun. And so it is! It’s out this week – go
Looking for Emily came up as an offering on Netgalley. The blurb intrigued me, and I succeeded in getting an advance copy. Not enough in advance for me to read it before publication, but I prioritised it all the same.
Ribbit! was a fantastic prompt from KL Caley at New2Writing.com for this week’s #writephoto. Having clarified that it was a frog and a toad pictured in the pond, I wandered off, thinking. And eventually knew how to start, and how
Untethered is a recent anthology from Rhonda Parrish. She is prolific with these, and every author should check out her website to see if their writing might have suited past calls, and what the current call for submission is (Women
Seahorse – what a great picture for our #writephoto prompt from K L Caley today. I’m still having trouble getting my writing brain into gear, but just putting one word after the other seems to work. I decided to stop
The Museum of Ordinary People: a book that didn’t fit any category I usually read, but sounded as if I’d really enjoy it. Right on both counts, as it turns out. Thank you to NetGalley and to the publishers for
Which world would I like to live in? That’s the IWSG question today. I’m glad I can answer it because I can’t think of anything to write about just now. My brain is fried, and my inbox is overwhelming me.
The Flavia Albia series by Lindsey Davis is one of my favourites. You’ve already had all the Falco series – well, from about halfway through which was when I started blogging. Flavia Albia is his daughter – now grown up,
It’s Summer/Winter Sale time again! Smashwords does its site-wide promotion through July, summer in the northern hemisphere, winter in the south. And whether you’re thinking of hiding from the barbecue, lying on a sunbed, or curling up by a nice
Check-in for half-year – where did those six months go? Well, I’ve read a lot of books, although I slowed down in June, too much else going on, and not enough sitting in the garden in my lounger, guarding the
Birdgirl is an autobiography by a young birder. Thank you, netgalley and the publishers, for the chance to review it. It was not easy to read. Some ARCs are perfectly well formatted. However, I’ve had several where the digits are
Today I round up my Not 30 Days Wild environmental activities for June, because the rest of the month I’ll be too busy with family birthdays. Two of those are taking place in a garden/arboretum, so I expect there’ll be
