Top 5 Books on my To-Read List

My reading list grows by the day, mainly because of my slow reading speed, but here are my top 5 for this year. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo I’ll admit: this is a book I only heard of because a good friend of mine, Stef, loved it. The cover is eye-catching, although the title…

Wattpad Block Party Winter 2018

As mentioned in a previous post, I shall be guest-posting in Kelly Anne Blount‘s Wattpad Block Party Winter 2018. After hearing suggestions from all my readers, I’ve decided to talk about fantasy story plotting, specifically regarding Rune Mage, including magic lore, character building, motivations, and the actual plotting process. It’ll be heavily condensed, because there’s only…

New Year’s Resolution

Happy 2018! Wishing you all a safe, happy, and successful new year. I thought I’d start the year with a short list of resolutions. Although I’m not one for using new year’s specifically for resolutions — I’d rather have short goals throughout the year — it won’t hurt to make a grand end point, right?…

NaNoWriMo 2017 has officially kicked off! I have a loaded schedule this month, so I’m not sure how much I can actually get done, with two friends visiting separately from the other side of the world and six days’ exams at the end (and I still need to study for it!) but we’ll see. March…

Book promotion! “Feeding Frenzy” by MaajaWentz. Check out this witty supernatural thriller with witches and the undead and food obsession, a Watty2015 winner!

Completing March City

28 November 2016 marks the upload of the last chapter of March City: The Land of the Gifted, my first attempt at NaNoWriMo back in 2014. This story took almost two years to complete simply because of the long hiatus I took not long after the 50k, so that, along with Seeker: Demon Killers, are quite…
