What’s on this blog?

My writing journey: I’m currently set on being published (or self-publishing . . . who knows?) and I talk about my writing here. I also post some of my short stories on occasion.

Book reviews: I tend to focus on LGBTQ+ and diverse fantasy novels, usually indie. But I read widely and this isn’t a hard line in the sand!

Community commentary: I don’t post these often, but it’s my thoughts on the state of publishing and the book community. Sometimes I discuss current topics. Sometimes I discuss things that happened years ago. Depends on how I feel.

General thoughts: things like why I don’t tend to like Beauty and the Beast retellings, why I think I’m becoming an intolerant reader, etc.
