Review: Resistance

Review: Resistance

This is the second of my two-part review of Amy Brock McNew’s shorter companion works in the Reluctant Warrior Chronicles. While last week I reviewed Reformation, which is only available by subscribing to Amy’s website, Resistance is available through more traditional means like online booksellers. Resistance is a novella that follows roughly the same timeline as her full-length […]

I’m going to start reviewing audiobooks and shorter fiction. We’re busy, and these are good ways to enjoy great fiction. I’m a huge fan of audiobooks. Nothing makes a long drive or laundry more enjoyable than listening to a good book. I recently reviewed the novella Just Dumb Enough by several Realm Makers, which benefits the […]

Five Korean Dramas for Speculative Fiction Fans

Five Korean Dramas for Speculative Fiction Fans

So, pretty much anyone who knows me fairly well knows I’m a big fan of Kdramas/Korean dramas. I think they’re quite a bit cleaner than American television shows, without sacrificing any quality. This week I thought I’d share five of my favorite Kdramas, ones I think my speculative fiction friends will appreciate. Don’t be intimidated by subtitles. […]

What I Learned Between Book One and Book Three

What I Learned Between Book One and Book Three

Guest Blogger: Amy Williams When I held Nameless, my first published novel, in my hands in December 2014, I didn’t try to imagine the day when I would touch the final book in the trilogy. That first book had to sell enough copies to merit a second novel before I could even think about the […]
