11 Indie Book Covers that are Knocking it out of the Park

Book covers are works of art. They’re also marketing tools. Being in complete control of your book cover can be a huge advantage of self-publishing. It’s also harder than you’d think. We authors (and by “we” I mostly mean “me” 😅) aren’t always savvy marketers, and designing a book cover that sells in a particularContinue reading “11 Indie Book Covers that are Knocking it out of the Park”

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. I haven’t read it yet, but I’m definitely intrigued by the description. It gives me a Captain America vibe, which I am 100% here for.Continue reading “Book Spotlight: The Persistence of Memory by Karen Janowsky”

Mary Jane Watson’s Wedding Dress is Perfection (And Other Thoughts on Weddings and Comics)

So… I’m getting married later this month. I know, right? It’s incredibly exciting yet stressful. I’m super ready to marry this man, but wedding planning is such an ordeal, you guys. It’s given me a deep and unyielding sympathy for every character in a superhero franchise whose wedding ceremony was crashed by marauding supervillains. ThatContinue reading “Mary Jane Watson’s Wedding Dress is Perfection (And Other Thoughts on Weddings and Comics)”

Why Steampunk is the Little Black Dress of Speculative Fiction

Steampunk is a weird, niche little genre, when you think about it. Merriam-Webster defines it as “science fiction dealing with 19th-century societies dominated by historical or imagined steam-powered technology.” That’s pretty darn specific. It’s not like the post-apocalyptic subgenre restricts its stories to the 23rd century, or space opera specifies the power source that spaceshipsContinue reading “Why Steampunk is the Little Black Dress of Speculative Fiction”

Summer Getaway: A White Knight & Black Valentine Series Short Story

Dave set their suitcases on the dresser and stretched, still stiff from the flight. He surveyed the cozy bedroom, taking a moment to appreciate the view of the mountains out the window. “This is nice,” he said to Val. “I need to have it redecorated,” she called back from the bathroom, where she was touchingContinue reading “Summer Getaway: A White Knight & Black Valentine Series Short Story”

8 Steampunk Heroines with Fabulous Fashion on their Book Covers

Fashion is part of the appeal of steampunk for me. I love seeing cosplayers at conventions and am fascinated by the styles of the Victorian Era. Not gonna lie–the main reason I set The Ghost Machine in the 1880s is because I like the style of the dresses in that era with the bustle inContinue reading “8 Steampunk Heroines with Fabulous Fashion on their Book Covers”

The Superhero Dating Reality Show You Need to Follow

I don’t watch reality TV. It’s just not my cup of tea, but I’m starting to think I’ll be interested in anything if you throw superheroes into the mix. Case in point: The S Factor. It’s essentially The Bachelor but for superheroes, which I think is the coolest concept ever. Superheroes have a notoriously toughContinue reading “The Superhero Dating Reality Show You Need to Follow”
