Book review for Realmscapes

By | 2016-10-17T19:50:31+00:00 December 20th, 2016|Blog|

I enjoyed this book. It's not in my top favorites, but it was well worth the money and the read. Several stories whetted my appetite for that author, and now I'm going to be looking for more that they've written, as I've enjoyed their prose and subject matter. Other short stories were fun and entertaining, [...]

Winter is here. Finally.

It's starting to finally feel a bit like winter here. The leaves in the trees have changed to red, the nights have cooled down to the low 40's and we've finally turned on our heater. All of you that live elsewhere in the country, who've been dealing with snow for the last two months or [...]

Book review for Demon

By | 2016-10-17T19:47:00+00:00 December 7th, 2016|Blog|

I wish I had known in advance that the book was based of Ezekiel 11, as I wouldn't have spent part of the book wondering about the Biblical foundation. That being said, I found Demon to be an intriguing and magnetizing read. It held my attention and kept drawing me back. Like a bread crumb [...]

Character Post: Finn

Finn has a mission--and a secret. Will all that he's worked to protect unravel from one ill-timed event? Oh Finn. How I love Finn. Unfortunately, I can't share too much about him-- not yet, anyways. After the series is finished, I will be writing another book, the backstory of Finn, "The Phoenix". So, Lord willing, [...]

Book review for Healer’s Curse

By | 2016-10-17T19:46:33+00:00 November 23rd, 2016|Blog|

I greatly enjoyed this novella! It expanded the world for me as a reader, and kept me hooked into the story. Lady Elilan has been through so much, and experiencing everything unfold from her viewpoint was marvelous. McKee creates characters with such incredible depth and complexity, that you can't help feeling for them within just [...]

Book review for Mardan’s mark

Oh man, I love this book! I bought it on a whim at Realm Makers this year, and I am sooo glad I did. Within just a chapter, I was intrigued. Within three chapters I was hooked and wanting to forsake all else in my day just so I could read more. Start to finish, [...]

Book review for Wrath and Ruin

By | 2016-10-17T19:49:48+00:00 November 1st, 2016|Blog|

I had no idea what to expect when I picked up this book by C.W. Briar and decided to buy it, no idea at all. But I'm sure glad I got it! The collection of stories cover an impressive range of characters, settings and types of suspense. One story was based in space while another [...]

A day in the history of my web browser

Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of a well-written book? I can tell you one particular aspect. Research. Tons and tons of research. In Betrayal by Blood, there are a wide range of scenes and topics: sword fights, floriography, dragons, death, and snow, to name a handful. Those topics may or [...]
