I Should Have Read That Book Tag

I haven’t done a tag in a while and saw this one over at One Book More. It seemed like a good chance to examine my TBR pile, which–like the universe–is large and always expanding. 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”

How I Outline a Novel

Warning: this post contains spoilers for The Cruelest Curse, the third book in my Dark and Otherworldly urban fantasy series. If you haven’t read it yet, skip this post and come back later.

5 Ways You’d Probably Die in an Urban Fantasy Novel

“If you could live in any fictional world, what would it be?” Does that question give anyone else anxiety? Like sure, it would be nice to visit Middle Earth, but I don’t want to get murdered by bands of roving orcs. The Star Wars universe? Noooo, thank you. Did you see that new Death Star?Continue reading “5 Ways You’d Probably Die in an Urban Fantasy Novel”

Book Spotlight: The Persistence of Memory by Karen Janowsky

It’s no secret around here that I love superhero romance novels, so I was happy when author Karen Janowsky reached out to me about her series, The Persistence of Memory.
