This is my first attempt,Continue reading “Rejected Book Covers for the Dark and Otherworldly Omnibus”

The Art of Otherworld

I’ve been playing around with Photoshop a lot lately, my goal to eventually create my own book covers.

Some interesting flora and fauna. And youContinue reading “The Art of Otherworld”

Short Story: Confessions of a Former Chosen One

This one’s funny but dark. Content warning for mentions of torture and attempted suicide. I was thirteen when the wizard took me. Opened a portal right under my feet. I fell through the fabric of the universe, screaming my throat raw, and landed in an ice-cold lake. Thank God my parents had paid for swimmingContinue reading “Short Story: Confessions of a Former Chosen One”

5 Reasons to be Scared of the Fae

Vampires and werewolves are thoroughly entrenched in horror movies and literature. The fae, though? Not so much. Which is a shame, because they can be super creepy and dangerous. The Wild Hunt Lock your doors. Hide your kids. The Wild Hunt is coming. What is the Wild Hunt? That’s actually up for debate. Sometimes aContinue reading “5 Reasons to be Scared of the Fae”

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”

Opinion: Why the Fae are the most Versatile Creatures in Urban Fantasy

If you told me that I could only read or write about one supernatural creature for the rest of my life, I would choose the fae. This isn’t me trying to trash talk werewolves or demons or anything. It’s just that the fae can fill their role just as well. They’re like the jack ofContinue reading “Opinion: Why the Fae are the most Versatile Creatures in Urban Fantasy”

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.
