A few years ago, I received a lovely ARC from a friend of mine. She told me it was a Canadian author, a good book, and one she very much wanted me to have. I made a very smart decision: I ignored it for three years and read Wheel of Time.
Consider this blog/review an attempt to right this wrong.

For some reason, no one ever remembered his face.
The Monster of Elendhaven by Jennifer Giesbrecht came out last month and I scrambled to get my hands on it. I have long been a fan of Giesbrecht’s: she was one of the first authors I followed during when I read Homestuck fanfiction. Our interests diverged, our social sites differing, but upon joining the writing community on Twitter I was delighted to find her active and, justly, being published through Tor.

I’ve finally hit the final 3 books of Wheel of Time, a series I love deeply and began reading a few years ago after hearing news of the TV show being made. I knew of the series for years—it’s hard to go into a fantasy section without seeing them—but never made the plunge. Having finished Knife of Dreams late August, and about to start The Gathering Storm, I wanted to recap a few of my favourite and most hated moments, characters…celebrating my love for a grand series. Yes, I count complaining as love.

As you may have noticed, I did a little rebranding across my accounts last week. I’m very excited about this change and definitely want to tell you all a little more about my decision making and creative process, as I try and make all my headers, promo material, etc. myself.

To those following my Twitter, these words should be all too familiar. From the moment I discovered Hafsah Faizal’s upcoming (now published) debut, We Hunt the Flame, I was captivated. A rich, Arabian-inspired fantasy world, written by a Muslim woman? It’s everything I love about diverse books and YA, and I had to get my hands on it. I’m not much of a book reviewer, as most of my critical skills fall to the wayside as the excitement of “PLEASE read this” overcomes me, so this will likely not compare to more experienced bloggers’ words.
All the same, I have to say something beyond “PLEASE read this”. The book deserves it.

Like many authors, my background isn’t in creative writing. I have a degree in communications and design—still storytelling, but in a different medium. When I joined Twitter and saw the aesthetic boards the community makes, I was in love so quickly. For this post, I thought I’d do a writeup on three of the boards I made for #WedWIPAesthetic. I’ll touch on my image choices, overall design, and a little about process. All of these are for my dark fantasy WIP, starring a messy man named Magnolia Ryder.

A reminder that all my posts can be accessed a week early on Patreon for as little as $1/month!
I recently finished something like my 10th re-watch of a very good anime, “Princess Tutu”. I’ve always loved it for a number of reasons, the characters, the ballet, the music…but this time as I start my own writing career what really struck me was the ending and the themes of happiness vs suffering the story presents. This will obviously contain spoilers for the end of the series, so if you haven’t seen and wish to remain unspoiled, bookmark this for after a good marathon watch.
