I came across Whitney Avalon’s amazing Youtube channel, which contains lots of great pop culture parody content that mostly centers on Disney princesses, but also includes other nerdy media (Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Star Wars).

Part 2 of my going through all of the characters of Critical Role’s second campaign, a fantasy RPG web series/podcast (depending on how you choose to experience it). Part 1 is here.
I’d probably best get on with talking about Molly’s character.
Haven’t done a Top Ten Tuesday list in a while, but I’m actually really excited by this one. It’s now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
In no particular order:
The Jonathan Healy and Francis Brown stories by Seanan McGuire
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Historical Fantasy
Length: vary in length from 15-60 pages each
Available: Here (most are available for free, but some are collected into anthologies)
I could have filled the entire list with this series of short stories–there are over a dozen of them. In a world where cryptids (folkloric animals) are real and in hiding from the rest of the world, the Healys are a family of battle cryptozoologists who both protect humans from dangerous cryptids and cryptids from extremist humans.

Synopsis: Tandy is a delinquent fallen from her high-class background, and Tyrone is a sweet but haunted teen whose family is still caught in the grip of a tragedy that happened years ago. They both have a plethora of personal problems and a knack for getting in trouble…just as they each start developing powers.

I’m doing an Amazon giveaway contest of my novel for my blog readers here. (EDIT: Giveaway over.)
The ebook will also be on sale this week–officially so in the US and UK store, but I priced it down in all the international stores as well.
Synopsis: A Time Lord, the Doctor, travels through time and space, answering calls for help and saving humanity. He’s almost always joined by a companion–currently, a teacher named Clara–who keeps him company, and keeps him from doing anything too terrible. Continue reading “Doctor Who Season 9: The Cycles of an Immortal Life”
Last weekend was Bookcon, and I got the chance to go to some great panels. Pretty much everyone was interesting, but some of the writers told some seriously memorable anecdotes. I’m going to paraphrase what I remember of them, so keep in mind that memory is a tricky thing, and the following represents whatever managed to lodge itself in mine—which may not be 100% accurate. Continue reading “Bookcon 2018: Let Me Recount My Favorite Author Anecdotes”
I envisioned myself slowly wading into the pool of indie publishing, but now that I’ve started, I kind of want to plunge in. Which probably explains why I went ahead and published my first YA epic fantasy novel, Chains Carried on Wings, on Amazon.
Saig had always lived on the edge of acceptance. Unlike a proper daughter of the head family, she longed for the freedom of the open woods over the confinement of her home. It was enough to drive away the two people who should, by rights, have been her closest companions. Continue reading “Chains Carried on Wings Release and Upcoming Sale”
Synopsis: Jessica Jones is a superstrong PI who just wants to be left alone to take pictures of cheating spouses and drink unhealthy amounts of alcohol. Her past recently came back to haunt her, in the form of the mind-controlling creep who’d kept her subjugated until she escaped him, and she killed him. But the past isn’t done with her yet. Continue reading “Jessica Jones: Messed-up Characters Pushed to the Limit”
Genre: Urban fantasy/sci-fi/romance
Synopsis: Maud was born into an Innkeeper family, and taught the customs of the varied alien races who used the inn as a waystation—or a safe house. But she left her family to marry a vampire, entering a society that viewed her as weak due to her humanity, despite her martial prowess. She had a daughter. And then her husband got all three of them exiled onto a dangerous planet where they had to fight to survive.
