I've Moooooved!


This website will be here for at least a bit, but please visit and update your bookmarks to get the latest and greatest. It's much prettier too! And you won't miss a thing. Go there now.



So, hey, it turns out I can reveal the March 1 news early, because the review was posted online today. Here goes... Lois Lane: Fallout got a STARRED REVIEW from Kirkus! Kirkus! Snippet: "This lighthearted and playful tone permeates the novel, making for a nifty investigative mystery akin to Veronica Mars or Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Readers are in for a treat.

Or as Jules puts it in Girl on a Wire: With motion comes purpose. With motion comes discovery. But there's a value to taking stock and keeping a record too. And the amusement value of looking back from another year on, as I just did to last year's post (pretty on point, actually, though as always some things took longer to get to than I expected). I said last year that 2013...
