September Recap

Oops, I'm a little late in posting this, but my days have just been so crazy lately! September was a good month for me from a writing perspective, and I'm feeling pretty darn good about myself. My pitch session at the RMFW writers conference was a success, resulting in a request for pages. I've also... Continue Reading →

Review: Steelheart

Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars I've come to expect great things from Sanderson, and he didn't disappoint. Steelheart was a wild ride from beginning to end. My favorite part of this story was the way Sanderson masterfully kept multiple possible avenues open until the very end so I could speculate... Continue Reading →
