What I learned From Writing Short Stories – Rethinking My Approach to Fiction

Due to waiting for feedback on a novel, doing revisions and editing on others, and in general trying to hold off on starting too many big new projects (because I need to also publish them at some point), I've written a lot of short stories this year.

The Best Book on Writing & Book Review: Techniques of the Selling Writer by Dwight V. Swain

I probably haven't read as many How To books on writing as I should, but I've read a few and I came across this one as a recommendation for further reading from another one.

Ann Marcus is our main character. She wasn't born with that last name, that was one she took as she got older. She took it after... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Fairy Tale Ending by William F. Aicher

All your favorite fairy tales from when you were little, rewritten for adults in a brilliant and grotesque display. I love this. I'm on a horror binge at the moment, but I'm busy wading my way through Stephen King's IT, so it was great to interrupt that with a short story like this. A palette... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Finding Pandora by E. Rachael Hardcastle

A beautiful fantasy book about a girl (Ariette) who suddenly learns she's special, when a group of people with magical powers come across her and deem her 'the savior'. The Chosen One. Ariette doesn't doubt such people exists, after all she's been attacked by Vampyrs before and she's seen the Supes. But what can she... Continue Reading →
