Good news!

My laptop was finally salvaged 😭😭

…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!

Update

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. 

Audio Recording is Done!

I’ll let Freddie here show you how happy I am

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.

Changes

Over the course of the next few days, there’s going to be a few changes. 
Instead of posting a review a day, I’m going to scale down to one every other day. Work, unfortunately, has started eating more of my time. Author interviews, audio critiques, and things like that are currently on hold (except for the one already promised) until I can find the extra time to devote to them like I want. 

That being said, I’ve redone the Patreon a little bit. Basically what it is now is my stepping stone towards my other goals. I want to keep my reviews free for all authors, and Patreon is the way I intend to do that. My reviews will also be cross-posted there. If you like what I do, consider supporting me through Patreon, or promoting it to your friends! 
Reviews will resume on Monday!

No Review Today

Sorry, guys. No review today. Trying to play catch up and put myself ahead after work tore me down a bit this week 🙂 
Tomorrow’s review will be the written portion for the audio critique subject. This is one that my husband and I are collaborating on, and I’m really excited for it. We’ve gotten a handful of volunteers, so it should certainly prove to be a challenge. One that we’re both looking forward to. 

In the meantime, don’t forget to sign up for the newsletter.  


For those of you on mobile, it’ll be at the very bottom. Or, you can click the handy-dandy link I’ve provided. There’s a drawing going on to have your sci-do or fantasy book bought by me and distrubuted at a local convention! Details and signup available only to subscribers! Hurry. Signup ends July 9th. Winner will be announced on  the 10th. 

You’ll also get access to upcoming reviews and exclusive author interviews. 

I also have a Patreon. Haven’t done a whole lot of advertising for it, simply because the content is in development. I don’t expect much to come of it just yet, but it’s there if you want to check it out!

Thank you all so much for being here with me on this journey. None of this would be possible without your support. I only hope my future plans do you as much justice as you’ve done me!
