The Joys Of Audiobooks

Three months into 2021, and so far, I have six read books under my belt. Juggling two jobs and edits, I’m amazed with this progress toward my twenty book goal on Goodreads, though I’m aware of the irony. When I only had one job, I was lucky to even read ten books in a year.

Book Review: ‘Write Smart, Write Happy’

Sometimes the right book finds you at the right time of your life. It’s happened before with How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind: Dealing with Your House’s Dirty Little Secrets by Dana K. White. Something as simple as “just do the dishes” has broken through a funk that has been crippling forContinue reading “Book Review: ‘Write Smart, Write Happy’”

2018 Reading Highlights

I used to be an avid reader but really slacked off after college — at least when it came to published books. I devoured fanfics like crazy, and for the longest time, I really did cling to my favorite fandoms, enjoying AUs, fix-its, time travel, and so on. However, in 2018, I decided to participateContinue reading “2018 Reading Highlights”

“Sisters” — A short romp through history

  If you are looking for a short read, I highly recommend that you head over to Amazon quickly! Rachelle M.N. Shaw’s latest short story is free, and as my dad says (and he always does say it), nothing is better than free. To top it off, it’s a quality character-driven piece that focuses onContinue reading ““Sisters” — A short romp through history”

Check Out ‘The Ballerina’s Gift’

If you love paranormal fiction with a horror edge, be sure to get a copy of The Ballerina’s Gift by Rachelle M.N. Shaw, which was recently released electronically via Amazon. It is the second story in The Porcelain Souls series; however, readers can download the first short story in the series, The Eyes That Moved, for free (also availableContinue reading “Check Out ‘The Ballerina’s Gift’”

In Need of a Fun Read? Give ‘The Wizard’s Gambit’ a Read

I may be a little biased — having had a window-of-sorts to see this novel grow into its finished product and being friends with the writer — but I think I can safely say many readers will find “The Wizard’s Gambit” to be a hilarious, enjoyable read, plus it has Littlehammer in it! With feudingContinue reading “In Need of a Fun Read? Give ‘The Wizard’s Gambit’ a Read”

Final thoughts on Evernote

Previously, I had given a brief overview of Evernote and what it offers at a time when I was just playing around with it, promising to delve more into my experiences after I got serious with the program. That day has come, and I just have to say: I’m in love. Evernote is not justContinue reading “Final thoughts on Evernote”

The Quest for the Holy Something or Other

Today I’m sharing a dear friend’s recently published book — one of which I have had the privilege of being able to witness a small portion of its growth to its current state. Available in both paperback and ebook via Amazon and other booksellers, “The Quest for the Holy Something or Other” is a humorousContinue reading “The Quest for the Holy Something or Other”

App Review: Google Keep

I was recently forced to get a new phone after my old phone decided it could no longer make or take calls. On the old phone, I used Astrid Tasks, but since it’s now defunct, I couldn’t download it onto my new one. While looking through the preloaded apps on my android phone, I cameContinue reading “App Review: Google Keep”

It’s here! My copy of the ‘2015 Writer’s Market’

Last week I was excited to receive my copy of the “2015 Writer’s Market: Deluxe Edition,” though a bit peeved that after I ordered it — talking within a couple of days — they proceeded to drop the price by $9. But that’s just my luck: I have none. At least, this year I gotContinue reading “It’s here! My copy of the ‘2015 Writer’s Market’”
