Monday Book Review: Killer Kung Pao

Okay! Back on the book reviews, though I haven't made my proper outline. I actually haven't read something and then thought, "Shoot, I should really spend time reviewing this." Just kind of burned my way through a pile of eBooks each day. Killer Kung Pao. My summary: Murder at the natural-health convention. Plot: Thin in places.… Continue reading Monday Book Review: Killer Kung Pao


Shenanigans of a Wrimo

OK! Building on from yesterday. First question spotted on the Twitter: How to get through that one scene that's not long so much as boring, but still needs to be written or the story is no good. I liked this question. I had at least one. Alright, at the shot of a spoiler: My novel is… Continue reading Shenanigans of a Wrimo

NaNoWrimo 2016, Day 2

Right so I just finished NaNoWriMo for the night and thought I would update you because my usual Tuesday night shenanigans are not a-happenin'. Sorry, it is Wednesday. I shall refrain from wordiness about progress because it's... um, let's say it's getting to be sleep-times. They say a picture is a thousand words but I… Continue reading NaNoWrimo 2016, Day 2

Introducing NaNoWriMo 2016

Dear lord I was typing in the title and wrote 2018. I like to be organized and it's true I have approximately four* years worth of NaNoWriMo and other writing projects lined up, that's pushing it. Without much further ado, I would like to take today to introduce to you this year's NaNoWriMo. So far, it… Continue reading Introducing NaNoWriMo 2016

Monday Book Review: Grave in the Garage

Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.  I think this is going to be the last cozy mystery for a while. I'm going to hunt out something new for the next month. Hopefully my disclaimer above is up to scratch, please let me know if there's something I should… Continue reading Monday Book Review: Grave in the Garage

The Countdown Begins

Since the haiku challenge I regularly do on Sundays isn't up this week, I figured now was a good time to take stock of How Things Look. There's a thing called Prep-tober, in which I guess you prep for NaNoWriMo. That begins in six days, and I've just checked its actual description: World building, brainstorming...… Continue reading The Countdown Begins

Monday Book Review: Cappuccinos, Cupcakes and a Corpse

I'm running these thematically now. I'm not sure how many, I think 4-5 per genre consecutively. (Side mystery, how does it take 45-odd minutes to dig out a splinter the size of an ant's foot?) So. Cappuccinos, Cupcakes and a Corpse. I like cupcakes, I like cappuccino. Done. My summary: Thirty-something woman moves to a small town… Continue reading Monday Book Review: Cappuccinos, Cupcakes and a Corpse
