Wet leaves and battery acid and what I thought thunder would smell like.

Words and emotion and journeys through the strange, unknown, and horrifyingly beautiful.

The final season of Game of Thrones has been really polarizing for the fanbase, which I think has a lot to do with expectations and theories, as well as the result of not enough outlining and the decision to pace the final seasons with broad points as opposed to the slower, ambling path of the first four seasons.

There are a lot of possible discussion points for this season and how all creators can learn from what GoT has done,...

I was inspired to write this by Ashley Barron after chatting about a topic I think will be more and more common in this new age of publishing: What do you do when you’ve grown out of older books you’ve published?

One of the more “differentiating” things in self-publishing is that you can change a book after it’s published. It’s not difficult to re-upload a digital copy or Print-on-Demand book, and this is probably a blessing an...

When you think about the books, TV shows, and movies you love the most, what stands out? What makes a story memorable, believable, or addicting?

For me, it's the characters. They are our portal into the story, the lens through which we experience everything, so it's important that characters are unique, believable, and memorable.

Sometimes when we write, the players come to us as fully-formed brings in our minds, but sometimes t...

You’ve written a book (congrats!) and now it’s time to figure out how to get it published. What are your next steps?

If you’re looking to have your book traditionally published, going with an agent is a good choice. Agents help by being your advocate and cheerleader. We use our contacts and knowledge to help shape your book to be the best it can be, to fit the market, and sell it for the best deal possible.

But querying agents c...

I'm looking at this post thinking about how much I didn't do this past year, mostly surrounding the one blog post I've written, but when I turn back to reflect on the year, it was a massive foundation year, building a base for what (I hope) is going to be an amazing 2018 and beyond.

I finally went to Finland and met my family there, and it was so lovely and made me so happy, and I came home from the trip with an engagement ring...

This is a story I need to tell.

I don’t want to tell it. I don’t want to admit that what has happened wasn’t a dream, or a hallucination. If it’s not real, it can’t be bad, right? I told myself that for a long time, too long.

I used to be a normal person, a normal college student with a busy class schedule, a few good friends, and a less-than-healthy Sherlock addiction. I was probably on the Internet a little too much, discussin...

This is the first in a new series of blog posts about lesser-known history of Scandinavian and Slavic History.

Growing up in Canada we mostly learned about the Royal History of Great Britain. After all, Queen Elizabeth II is on our quarters, and Canada maintained its strong ties with the Monarchy even after becoming independent.

I was a voracious reader as a child, and loved historical fiction. I gravitated toward the stories I...

I’ve been doing the same New Year’s Post since I started blogging, but I lost some data last year so I’ll have to shake things up.

I’m not going to lament on 2016, the world’s issues or my personal medical crap from this year. It wasn’t the best year, but I made it through and things look brighter for the coming months.

This year I started a LOT of things, which is great and terrible at the same time, as I didn’t finish any of t...
