Book Review – Monthly TBR Update – April 2023

Well, this month has been up and down with life getting in the way of my reading and my car being out of action. That means no bluetooth in the car.

Writing Ranting – Problematic Authors – Goodbye SJM

It’s nothing new that some books have offensive content or authors have a negative stance on a group of people. I’m looking at you, J. K. Rowling and Sarah J. Maas. With social media constantly creating awareness over this, there’s always going to be pushback on why people still read those books. These arguments goContinue reading “Writing Ranting – Problematic Authors – Goodbye SJM”

Writing Ranting – Amazon and Indie Authors

I had a comment that made me rage a couple of weeks ago. They said “don’t publish your books on Amazon 🤢” Yes, with the sick emoji. Why did this bother me?

Writing Ranting – Are Chapter Titles Old News?

Maybe it’s just the books I read, but I rarely see chapter titles anymore. I don’t mean the chapter number. I mean a unique name for that chapter. I can count on one hand the number of books I read in the past year with chapter names, and the closest I come across is whenContinue reading “Writing Ranting – Are Chapter Titles Old News?”

Fur Babies – Stories From the Sanctuary – Foxy

As usual, this has nothing to do with writing, but I like to share updates on the cats and foster and the sanctuary I volunteer at on Sundays.  Last month, my previous foster cat, Raya, got adopted, and within a week, Foxy needed a foster home. This young cat was found a few weeks ago,Continue reading “Fur Babies – Stories From the Sanctuary – Foxy”
