I Received an Unsolicited Book. Now What?

Review – Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen

Review – When the Stars Come Out by Laura Trentham

Although 5th in the Cottonbloom series, When the Stars Come Out follows the sub-arc about the Abbot brothers, picking up after Leave the Night On. I wouldn’t say you need to read the first 3 books in the series to pick this one up but may want to pick up the fourth as it features one of the brothers, Wyatt, and his relationship […]

Your (Blogging) Stats Matter, But YOU Matter More

You’re hitting a blogging slump, I can feel it. Time to step back and re-evaluate what’s important to you. This blog series is not intended to be what […]
