The Week Ahead (#10)

Last week was tough for me in my personal life, what with my boss/mentor/role model passing away from leukemia.  Understandably, my scheduling was a bit messed up but now I’m ready to try to get back to normal and start moving on.


Curses and Smoke by Vicky Alvear Shecter

  • A review of Curses & Smoke by Vicky Alvear Shecter.  I read Cleopatra’s Moon by the same author nearly a year ago and loved it so when I heard Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours was doing a tour for her latest book I had to sign up.  We’ll see if it was worth it!




The latest installment in my writing pitfalls series called Writing Pitfalls: Pacing.  Pacing is often a huge issue when it comes to books and I’d like to offer a little advice to authors who have trouble with it.


The Sekhmet Bed by L. M. Ironside

  • A review of The Sekhmet Bed by L. M. Ironside.  This is the missing review from last week.  It was recommended to me by a friend when it was free on Amazon and it’s certainly one of the best books I’ve read in a long time.




The Exiled Queen by Cinda Williams Chima

  • A review of The Exiled Queen by Cinda Williams Chima.  I’ve been rushing through her series lately and am currently on the final book so I think that’s a good indication of the quality.




  • Book Blast: The Lost Duchess by Jenny Barden


  • Discussion: Unadaptable Books.
