Favourite Things to Watch in 2020

I really should stop calling myself a book blogger, but at least I’m still an author

I knew that being over 2020 has been done to death. So I had been hoping to put together a positive article, about the best things about 2020, from a Histories Unfolding perspective. The problem is, among other things, this year seems to have obliterated my reading habits. I can’t honestly remember what I read in 2020. There has, however, been a lot of sitting on the couch watching stuff.

Without further ado, here’s some of my favourite history adjacent things I watched this year.

2020: A Look Ahead

Yes, it’s time for another hiatus ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ but hey, that means I’m doing lots of fiction writing

The past year was pretty rocky in terms of getting writing done. But the good news is that it ended on a high of productivity. I managed to squeeze a bunch of content out of one book series that I read (seriously, you should check out The Accursed Kings.) I published another short story. More pertinent to this new year, I finally got untracked on the long promised sequel to Sparrow Squadron. And best of all, I’ve sorted out a leave of absence from my day job, which I’ll be using to go full speed on a number of long simmering writing projects: finishing up the Aelita’s War series, introducing my newsletter, moving into the fantasy genre and starting up a whole new series.

Of course, all of that is a long way of saying I may disappear from this blog for a while. Longer than usual, I mean.

If you’re interested at all in new material that may come down the pipeline, please sign up for my newsletter. I post very infrequently, and only when there’s important news that I think you’ll be want to hear about. Keep an eye out on an exclusive Aelita’s War short story ahead of the launch of Book 2.

Thanks for reading and I hope to be back at it sooner than you think!

2018 In Review: My 5-Stars for the Year

In a year where my blogging volume has dropped precipitously due to writing commitments (and, uh, work), this is probably my last post of the year. Let’s go out with a bang! I haven’t had the opportunity to post about some of my favourite things this year, so I’m gathering all my 5-star raves for 2018 in one place.

To keep things manageable, I’m restricting my list of 5-star reading and viewing experiences to “Histories Unfolding Approved” historically-related entries.
