Bookish Pet Names

Bookish Pet Names

So, my dog’s name is Zenith. I’ve had a lot of reactions to that name over the years: Xena? No, Zenith. Ze-what? Zenith. Like, the TV brand? Um, no. The truth is, she’s named after Zenith SunSoar from The Wayfarer Redemption series by Sara Douglass. My youngest cat, River – short for RiverStar – is named after RiverStar SunSoar from the same series. And I’ve thought about naming a future male pet Drago, short for DragonStar…you guessed it, SunSoar. I would love […]

Plagiarism and Instagram

Plagiarism and Instagram

And you get angry. WHY IS SUCH A TERRIBLE BOOK DRESSED IN SUCH A GORGEOUS COVER?! You’re devastated, and a little piece of your soul dies. Here are just a few of the covers I […]

Don’t be Afraid to be Yourself in YOUR Reviews!

Don’t be Afraid to be Yourself in YOUR Reviews!

We’ve all seen those “how-to” posts on writing reviews. Do this, don’t do that, make sure you blah blah blah. I hate those posts. Why? Because there are no rules. There are no guidelines. Your blog is YOUR space, and yours alone. Not anyone else’s! No one should ever, ever tell you how to review (or how not to). I cringe every time I see posts like that. Here are a few lines of “advice” I’ve seen that really annoy me: Don’t be sarcastic. […]
