An end-of-the-month look back at the last 30 days.
Another short post, because I have once again underestimated my own energy levels. Specifically, how I spend April recovering from March.
So, About Those Book Reviews…
They’re finally here!
In this installment, I review Echoes of Blood by Halo Scot, A Dangerous Game by Madeline Dyer, and Ace: What Asexuality Reveals About Desire, Society, and the Meaning of Sex by Angela Chen. I really enjoyed all three books for various reasons; read why here.
Speaking of Ace…
When a book speaks to you so vividly that you reach out directly to the author and thank them personally for writing it.
More of this, please.

That post I mentioned in the March month-in-review, that I had submitted to Writers’ Blokke on Medium and it was just sitting there? I submitted it to the ILLUMINATION page instead, and it posted! Check out The Theory of Creativity.
I Like Indie Books and I Cannot Lie
Since people like lists so much, I made one of my own: my favorite indie books.
Because indie books are cool. Indie authors are really cool, and the more we support them, the more really cool books these really cool people (full disclosure: myself included) will write.
Work, Work, Work…Day After Day…
Like most writers, I have a main source of income outside of my books. Yes, the dreaded “day job.” Does said day job actually help my writing, though?
It can. But not always.
It’s…complicated. Read why here.
I Was Told This Would Get Easier
Most things get easier the more often you do them. Writing? Not so much.

April 14 marked the two-year anniversary of Betrayal‘s release. That’s right, the fifth installment in the Jill Andersen series launched right as we were in the first throes of COVID-19. Worst timing ever aside, it was a successful launch.
