I’m BACK! #AtoZChallenge & more!



After a renewed cyber-bully attack based on a review I did in September I took a break which began on March 5th. I focused on healing and my graphics and went through blog tour withdrawals.

I am back with a bang & with the #AtoZChallenge (third year running). Click on the image to check out my theme! I also will be posting a few other things!

U is for a Unique Series – @HiJayPosey Answers a Question on Dystopian Fiction

Posted by on Apr 24, 2014 in #AtoZChallenge, Books | 0 comments

U-is-forLast year I picked up a book called THREE and was trapped in a real dystopian genre bender. A bit of fantasy, a bit of horror, great sci-fi and all so well wrought I was entranced at the utter beauty even in the middle of the bleakness of this post-apocalyptic world. When I reached the end I was shocked and thrilled. A real dystopia. No HEA here, people.  When Angry Robot contacted me about the second in the series I am pretty sure I made a lot of happy noises. Now that I have it to read as an ARC I am almost afraid to start. I contacted Jay and asked him if he could answer me why dystopian? I am a huge fan and it is very rare that you can find true dystopian fiction with all the classic conventions you expect and not some pretty foo-foo young adult coming of age story with girls in pretty dresses.

Secrets & Showers as a Cabin Dweller – #Alaskan Living #AtoZChallenge

Posted by on Apr 22, 2014 in #AtoZChallenge, Alaska Living, Books, Cabin Commentary | 1 comment

“Put your name on the list.” she said as she pushed over a dog-eared notebook for me to sign. ” There are four people ahead of you. Do you have preference on which shower you want?” Of course I did, for crying out loud. If you did not get the ones closest to the main hot water heater, you were going to have to deal with the chance of lukewarm water. I already live in enough discomfort having no running water; I really could do without a cold shower.

It’s been a bit since I posted something fabulous about Alaska.

ANYWAY I was planning on writing a post on Reviewing today but after I saw some of the latest northern light images from a local photographer, Lara Poirrier of Northern Source Images I decided to show of Alaska the best way I know how, with some amazing photographs.
