Sourcing & Bibliographies

Hello all! Sorry it’s been a while, but August has sort of whizzed by me somehow. At any rate, today I’ll be going over how to cite your sources in nonfiction works, as well as how to organize a proper bibliography. It may seem like a daunting task at first, but it’s really not thatContinue reading “Sourcing & Bibliographies”

Plans for July

June was a very busy month, and very productive as well. While not all goals were met, nevertheless, things picked up from previous months. I oversaw the re-launch of my old titles under my new publisher, completed a novella revamp many months overdue, and completed a review of my main series, which I hope toContinue reading “Plans for July”

My Ten Favorite Women Authors

In case you weren’t aware (I wasn’t until a couple years ago), March is Women’s History Month. So, in honor of the occasion, here are ten ladies of literature I think deserve some attention for their contributions to the written word in order, and with web links where applicable:

Now, there is a lot to examine on that page, but in particular, I’m going toContinue reading “Impression or Edition?”

‘The Mistmantle Chronicles’ (Or the Perfect Fantasy Series)

The Mistmantle Chronicles by M. I. McAllister is quite simply the perfect fantasy series, in my opinion. It has all the classic elements–good vs. evil, a fantastical setting, memorable characters, etc.–but it manages to put them together in just the right order. This is not a review, though at some point I may well reviewContinue reading “‘The Mistmantle Chronicles’ (Or the Perfect Fantasy Series)”

Review: ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ & ‘Through the Looking Glass’

These books by Lewis Carroll are classified in the genre of “nonsense literature”, and rightfully so. The author must have considered children to have very short attention spans indeed, as the scene changes every time you think you’ve got a fix on what is going on. The characters are irritably irritable, and the use ofContinue reading “Review: ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ & ‘Through the Looking Glass’”
