Question: Do You Ever Wish There Was No Sex?

Question: Do You Ever Wish There Was No Sex?

I am first and foremost an action junkie which means that my go-to genre is Urban Fantasy, and although I wouldn’t go so far as to say that sex scenes are rare in these types of reads, they are secondary. Oftentimes it’ll take several installments before the protagonist gets it on, these encounters are usually […]

Question: Why Do You Read?

Question: Why Do You Read?

I read for a variety of reasons, but the main one is probably to escape. The daily grind has a way of weighing down even the most happy-go-lucky among us with work commitments, family life, and a seemingly never ending to-do list. Sometimes it’s nice to forget that I have bills to pay, let the […]

Question: Do You Ever Feel Like NOT Reading?

Question: Do You Ever Feel Like NOT Reading?

Reading slumps are a fairly rare occurrence for me, but they do indeed occasionally happen. It is possible to have too much of a good thing, and although it does take A LOT for me to not feel like picking up a book, I do have a few ‘triggers’ that I try to avoid at […]

Question: Does Your ‘Mate’ Have to Be a Reader?

I don’t think that I have EVER dated a man who’s loved novels as much as I do, and although my husband does pick up the occasional book (namely, whenever a new installment in THE IRON DRUID CHRONICLES comes out—my doing!) I wouldn’t go so far as to call him a reader. Diving between the […]

For many this would seem like a natural progression, I like books, and I write on average four posts a week, so why not combine my two hobbies, and step into the publishing world, right? I know of many bloggers who have done just that, and I have given the idea some serious thought over […]

Question: Could You / Would You Buy Books Blindly?

Question: Could You / Would You Buy Books Blindly?

Pre-blogging I probably would have been more open to this idea because if the ‘surprise’ turned out to be an unpleasant one—no big loss. Or, if this idea would have come to me back when I was a student, and I had TONS of free time, why not!? However, now that I’m a responsible adult […]

Question: First Books in a Series that Knocked Your Socks Off

Question: First Books in a Series that Knocked Your Socks Off

I’m a series addict, and as much as I look forward to reading an author’s next installment, there’s just something extra special about discovering a fictional world and the characters who inhabit it for the very first time. And, I don’t mean “Yeah, that was good, I’ll check out the next one” but rather “OMG! […]
