Friday Five

      4 Comments on Friday Five

Five random things I need to mention: Bellica‘s distribution is going to be wider than I thought. Not only am I doing a Kindle ebook for 9.99, but I am also going to be using CreateSpace to make a paperback to sell on Amazon. More news on that as it develops. I am traveling this week to Orlando so I… Read more »

Friday Five: things that happened in the past two weeks

      Comments Off on Friday Five: things that happened in the past two weeks

List not comprehensive. I got totally swamped with work. I burned a Thanksgiving turkey beyond all recognition. Once I got through the blackened shell, however, there was delicious meat. I got back into school, 5 weeks into the semester. Had to cram half a semester’s knowledge into my brain on Tuesday and Wednesday for my midterm Thursday. Did pretty well…. Read more »

Friday Five: Five Banned (or challenged!) Books, in no particular order

      Comments Off on Friday Five: Five Banned (or challenged!) Books, in no particular order

I am only listing books I have actually read in this list. For a bigger list of banned or challenged books, I recommend checking out the ALA’s website. It’s probably impossible to get a comprehensive list, but they do a good job nonetheless. 1984, by George Orwell. A novel about a dystopian future, so naturally I love it. I read… Read more »

      Comments Off on Friday Five: five random items sitting in this writer’s room

I’m making a departure from the norm for this Friday Five — instead of listing books I think you should read, I’m just going to list 5 random things that are in my room. Why? Because it’s Friday Five and I can list whatever the hells I want. An unopened package of Rockets, sitting on my shrine to Aphrodite. (Yeah,… Read more »

Bitten, by Kelley Armstrong. Book #1 of the Women of the Otherworld series. It may get classified as “fluff” or “paranormal romance” but I disagree. I classify it as “Urban Fantasy”. Yes, there’s romance, but jesus h. christ just because the main character is female and she gets some tail (literally, she’s a werewolf) does not make it chick lit… Read more »

Mother Ocean, Daughter Sea (Book #1 of a Witch of Two Suns), by Diana Marcellas. Easily one of my favourite fantasy novels. Brierley is a compelling character and the world is rich and vast. Highly recommended. La Chiripa, by Kaimana Wolff. This rich novel, set in Todos Santos, Guatemala, gives young people a voice in situations where they are usually… Read more »

Bitters, by Kaimana Wolff. “Weeks after Victoria and Elan disappear on a romantic elopement, officers find a small plane at the bottom of Bitterroot Lake—with Victoria in it and no sign of Elan except remnants of the plane’s avionics in a burned-out campfire. Ray Walker, the youngest deputy sheriff in his town’s history, cannot let this case become his only… Read more »

So, I heard about something called The Friday Five, and apparently it’s something you do on your blog each week. There seem to be sites that generate questions for it, but I’ve been told you can also just list five things you want to share. I’ve decided to do it. As this is the blog of a writer and an… Read more »
