Sparrow Squadron – Cinematic Inspirations

Now that I’m actually getting somewhere with the sequel, my focus is almost entirely on finishing a first draft that’s within sight. So that this blog isn’t entirely dormant, I’m going to take a page from one of my favourite websites by “Exploiting the Archives.”

This piece was a surplus guest post that I wrote for my original blog tour. It’s about some of the movies that I watched for inspiration as I was writing Sparrow Squadron. You can see why it wasn’t picked up, as there isn’t much in the way of bookish content. Still, if you can’t get enough of the first novel, which probably means you’re my mom, then you can take these as movie recommendations!


Sparrow Squadron Now Available on NetGalley

Calling all bookbloggers and book reviewers! My debut novel, Sparrow Squadron, is listed on NetGalley for the next month as I try out this service for the first time.

If you’re not familiar with it, the novel is inspired the real-life overlooked stories of the Soviet Union’s women fighter pilots who went into combat against Nazi Germany. Here’s the one-liner:

Her homeland invaded, 16-year-old Aelya Makarova fights back in the deadly skies over WWII Russia. But enemy aces aren’t the only foes she needs to face.

Because I’ve waffled over using NetGalley before, I’m also going to use the results as an opportunity to write about what can be a very important tool for indie authors to get the word out about their work. So for the first time in a while, I’m getting work done both as a blogger and an author!

If you’re a bookblogger, book reviewer or just plain like reading free ebooks, you can go and check it out at the link here, or click on the banner below.
