Book Review: Shades of Magic Trilogy

Image result for shades of magic

What if there was not one London, but four? Kell is one of the last of the Antari, magicians able to travel between the Londons. He was born and raised in Red London, in service to the Maresh throne, and takes messages to the thrones of the other Londons. On the side, he smuggles artifacts from one London to the others, a highly illegal trade, and one that gets him into trouble after he smuggles something that’s more trouble than it’s worth: a magical artifact from Black London, the dead London.

I read these books because friends of mine loved them, and the entirety of the bookish part of the Internet is raving about them. I was less than impressed. Spoilers ahead. (more…)

Beautiful People: Cyrus Atlas Finn

Beautiful People, hosted by Sky and Cait, is a monthly character questionnaire and link-up focused around getting to know your characters better. I’ve been wanting to do Atlas, my beautifully tortured POV character from Thieves of Bakkaj, for a while, and I’m finally getting around to it! Yay! (more…)

Magic, Mischief, and a Little Bit of Chicken Fried

is for magic.

In which I weave together writing advice and my feelings while listening to Zac Brown Band.

M is for mischief.

In which I talk about the major downsides of an INTJ personality, specifically mine. And maybe weave in more writing advice, for any of you trying to write one.

M is for muffins.

Because I made some this morning and they were delicious, and I felt like I needed a third item in this list. (more…)

Thieves of Bakkaj

So, I’ve been quiet on here as of late, ruining last year’s New Years resolution to write every day or once a week or whatever it was that I resolved to do in 2016. It wasn’t for lack of ideas–so get ready for a lot of rants inspired by the things I find around the internet–but I do have a good excuse. Or, an excuse, anyway.

A few friends and I have started writing a serial story: Thieves of Bakkaj. It’s a fantasy story, and a chapter is published each week, alternating between me and the other three writers. It’s got well-developed characters and the potential to become something really awesome. I’d love it if you’d check it out and give us a read!

We also have a Facebook page, and we’re trying to get the word out best we can.

So here’s to 2017 being the year I manage to keep up my blog for more than four months while working on the other things I’m writing, and here’s to 2017 being the year I become internet famous, because it certainly wasn’t 2016. But we’re getting there.

Cheers!
