Where do you find free books?

Obviously authors should get paid for their work. If we can’t afford a computer or are stressing about how to pay rent, we’re not going to be able to write. But giving away the first book in a series for free, either as a limited-time sale or a permanent promotion, is a tried-and-true method ofContinue reading “Where do you find free books?”

Fae Friday: Favorite Female Characters

#FaeFriday is a set of weekly blog prompts hosted by Caffeinated Fae. This week’s topic is “What are some of your favorite female characters?” Talking about awesome female characters is my jam, so I had to jump on board.

Who’s the Ultimate Witch in Superhero Comics?

What is a witch? It seems like an easy question. Pointy hat. Black cat. Casts spells. Might have warts. You know—a witch. But is “witch” just a catch-all term for female magic users?

A Book That a Certain Friend is Always Telling You to Read Well, NeriSiren does mention the October Daye series aContinue reading “I Should Have Read That Book Tag”

Listen to this Podcast: Inn Between

My podcast library isn’t very big (yet). I can fly through most novels in a couple of days and a comic in an afternoon, but podcasts, like TV shows, are more of a time commitment. So I tend to only listen to ones that I really, really like. I really, really like Inn Between. IfContinue reading “Listen to this Podcast: Inn Between”

Vintage SciFi Month: Mysta of the Moon

It’s Vintage Sci-Fi Month again! For those of you not familiar with this not-a-challenge, it runs every January and is about reading vintage science fiction (or fantasy). “Vintage” is defined as being before 1979 or your birth year, whichever is easier. I’ll be taking the chance to talk about one of my favorite vintage comicContinue reading “Vintage SciFi Month: Mysta of the Moon”
