Book Tag: October Reads and Bonus Chinese Heritage Month

By a happy accident, my October reading picks follow the theme of Chinese Heritage

As my work on the Sparrow Squadron sequel goes into overdrive, my blogging is still only going to be intermittent. So I was very happy to have been spurred to write this post by a Twitter book tag from friend of the blog Kristin Kraves Books (@kristinbooks). Shout out, Kristin! The bookblogging community has been a lovely and welcoming place, and it was really heartening to draw inspiration from it even as I’ve been going through a lean blogging period.

This tag is a list of October reading choices. I quickly noticed a theme developing entirely by coincidence. All of the books have some connection to Chinese history. So I’m declaring October to be my personal Chinese Heritage Month!


Mini-Review Round-Up: SFF Corner

It’s time for a break from the history stuff with some mini-reviews of science fiction and fantasy

This site usually focuses on history, historical fiction, or writing historical fiction. I’ve been writing the sequel to my first novel, so I’ve had to immerse myself in World War II history. Writing fantasy stories and reading fantasy and science fiction offer a welcome break. Here are some mini-reviews of SFF books I’ve recently finished.


A New Kind of Warrior: Now Complete on Wattpad

Granted, I wrote “A New Kind of Warrior” a while ago, but I’m still proud of myself for editing and posting it onto Wattpad for everyone to read in between all the stuff going on with my novel and blog. Just goes to show you the value of getting things written in advance. 😃  Here’s my blurb for this fantasy story with a twist:

Lindal has been chosen by her god to be the lone girl among her people’s caste of divine warriors, giving her the power to sense and shape the natural world around her. Now fate leaves the last chance of salvation for her people in her hands. She must protect a sacred fragment of their god against a ruthless invader. But as the land dies around her and her power wanes, her only hope lies in seeking help from an unexpected and dangerous ally.
