…three hard drives later. But this means that reviews will resume tomorrow!
I’ve adjusted a few things at work so hopefully in the next few weeks I’ll have a little extra free time to not only finish the fifty some-odd reviews still in line, but to also implement some changes to the site that I’ve been sitting on for a little while. Hold tight, guys! I promise I’m almost there!
Just a quick update to let you know that my computer crashed and Reviews will be delayed until I can get it working again. The mobile formatting for WordPress is atrocious and terrible so I’m refusing to use that. Once it’s fixed reviews will resume once more. I only have about 50 books left!! We’re getting there!
Since I’ve been getting a few emails recently asking for a status update, I figured I’d go ahead and post this to reach as many as possible.
I’m slowly slogging my way through things.
When I first set this site up, I had enough spare time that allowed me to read and review a book a day. Unfortunately for me (and everyone else!), that is no longer an option. I’m lucky to get one done per week now.
I haven’t forgotten, nor have I lost anything.
I think over the course of the next week or so, I’ll try to create a list of what I’ve got left, and the relative order in which the authors are in. That way, everyone can see where I’m at as well, and as I post the reviews, cross said book off for everyone to see. Does that sound like a good idea?
I appreciate everyone taking time out to check up on things. Hopefully in the next few days I’ll have something more than: “I’m sorry, I’m working on it!”
Until then, however: I’m sorry for the delays. I promise I’m working on them! Thank you so much for all your patience.
Starting next week, I’m going to scale down the reviews to twice a week. My free time has been significantly lowered, so my reviews will go up on whatever my days off are that week. I’ve been slowly making my way through the queue, so don’t worry if your novel hasn’t been reviewed yet!
Had a lot going on with family, and things of that nature. Reviews will resume tomorrow 🙂
As a side note, I’ve started training for a 5k mud run. My very first one. More running than I’ve done since high school. Wish me luck!!
WyvaCon was honestly so much fun. I met some really awesome fellow nerds, and the smaller venue made things feel a bit more personal. I’m sad I didn’t get to take more pictures, but I do have a few for you!
As promised, one of the first things I did was drop off Shari Sakurai’s Adam at the nerdy book exchange. There were quite a few titles available for trade or purchase, but none of them looked nearly as sleek 😉
I checked on it periodically throughout the day. It got moved around a lot, so people were picking it up and checking it out. I didn’t see it before I left, so I’m hoping someone out there is about to be really happy!
There was an interesting panel from the 501st Legion. They showed us how they made their armor so flawless, offered painting techniques, as well as an open-floor Q&A. They were all super-nice, and super-dedicated to their craft.
There was, of course, a game room (one that didn’t smell entirely offensive). A dealers room. Tabletop gaming had their own little section down below. I managed to snag a sweet pair of Batman earrings, and then promptly proceeded to lose one. A friend of mine entered the Smash tournament. He won one. At least there was that for him. A volleyball tournament (that I lost the photos for) between heroes and villains, with Deadpool commentating. I’m sure you can imagine how great that was.
All of this was organized and executed by the awesome guys over at Nightwatch Haunt. Take a look, give them some love.
To be honest, this is my first time blogging about a con I’ve gone to. I think I’m going to start making it a regular thing–except I’ll be more prepared with an overload of pictures, I think. And more stories. There’s only so much that can happen at smaller venues, but I had an absolute blast.
Had a lot going on lately. Reviews will resume tomorrow. I’ve got a bit of vacation time this upcoming week so hopefully you’ll see quite a few more! It’ll also give me some time to get myself ahead as well.
Also, Wyvacon is this weekend! Shari Sakurai’s book, Adam, will be given away at the book exchange. I can’t wait!
Caleb Broderick, author of The Junkyard Kids, is looking for people interested in reviewing said novel! Serial killers, homeless orphans, and POC that aren’t stereotypes. Check out Caleb’s Amazon page for more information! No purchase necessary.

I’m happy to announce that the recording for the audio critique of Moristoun is finished! Post-production shouldn’t take too long…if it ever finishes downloading. Living in the boonies isn’t just about copious amounts of sweet tea and racism. There’s really bad internet, too.
