It's hard to believe it's almost 2022. Anywho, here's a wish for you. May your TBR be plentiful. May your reads be five-stars. May the science fiction flourish and the fantasy contain dragons. May the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ authors get the same or better marketing as the whyte epic fantasy authors. May the fields and … Continue reading Upcoming SFF, January-March 2022
Just when I thought I would never catch up (what a laughable thought, right?) on the 2020 releases, suddenly 2022 is right around the corner and I'm left in a panic. First of all, what the fuck happened to 2021? Second of all, 2022?! Where are the flying cars I was promised? What happened to … Continue reading Upcoming YA, January-March 2022
I always feel so awkward stumping for my writing. Wooooooohoooooo imposter syndrome. However, I'm incredibly proud about my fiction, and the fact that ever so slowly, after many fits and starts and self doubt, my work is being published. I've been feeling incredibly grateful and overwhelmed with everything being published this fall (six short stories), … Continue reading Promo Time: Two Anthologies releasing today!
I have a new short story out! Okay, technically it's been available on Amazon (in print and ebook) form since October 1st, but "Tell the Crows I'm Home" is available for free on Metaphorosis Magazine's website. "Tell the Crows I'm Home" is one of the most intensely personal short stories I've ever written, although I … Continue reading Short Story Release! Moody, Queer, Softly Dystopian and Free!
Two mini graphic novel reviews that I promise I will keep short and sweet! And there's a theme beyond them being two middle-grade/lower YA graphic novels, I swear. The Dire Days of Willowweep Manor by Shaenon Garrity 🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺/5 On a dark and stormy night, Gothic romance-obsessed Haley sees a stranger drowning in the river. Of … Continue reading Two Mini Reviews: The Dire Days of Willowweep Manor and Long Distance
While July and August are kinda slow release-wise (for SFF books I'm interested in, anyway—there are a lot of big name authors releasing stuff these months, who I don't particularly care for, and then a bunch of contemporary romance authors for whom I do care), September is promising to kick off a fantastic fall release … Continue reading Upcoming SFF Jul-Sep 2021
My 100% completely arbitrary list of the YA releasing in the third quarter of 2021. This is by far not a comprehensive list of what's being released this quarter (all of September alone would break the limits of WordPress), just the ones that I'm really excited about. Will I be able to read all these? … Continue reading Upcoming YA July-Sep 2021
There are a lot of repeats on this one, since I got through three (three) of my June ARCs last month and while I'm happily working my way through The Jasmine Throne, I am feeling very, very behind and I do not like it. But right now I'm up to my eyeballs in packing material … Continue reading June 2021 TBR
May is National Asian-Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and while this is a US-national month, I'd like to focus on Asian and Pacific Islander authors from all over the world as well as in the US. Asian hate crimes and attacks have been on the rise over the past year, particularly attacks on elders and women. … Continue reading Sci Fi Friday: 30+ SFF Books by Asian and Pacific Islander Authors
A new month, and a new TBR! I have a whopping bajillion (okay it's less than that but it feels like a bajillion) ARCs that I requested for June because I have absolutely no shelf control, and now it's May and I must read my little eyeballs off in order to catch up. I've only … Continue reading May 2021 TBR
