Wildfire by Mary Pauline Lowry

I love when I find an author who writes strong female characters. Who doesn’t love strong girls who follow their minds, don’t let anyone boss them around and have their own adventures? That’s why I love me some Mary Pauline Lowry.  Our shared hometown of Austin and our love of grrrl power makes us kindred spirits.Mary’s latest book is Wildfire and I loved it so much I made a video. Check it out.  ...more

REVIEW: Zero Visibility by Georgia Beers

The really wonderful thing about Lesbian Fiction is that it has really become pretty diverse in terms of genre.Yes, I think we still have a ways to go, but there are more options to choose from today than there were in, say, 2000. Heck, in the last 10 years alone, the Golden Crown Literary Society has gone from giving out awards in 3 categories to giving out awards in 13 categories. (And I have no doubt that we’ll be adding categories in future years.) Like a good mystery/thriller? Not a problem. Enjoy sinking your teeth into a good vampire story? Yep, lots of those, too....more

Book Review: #GIRLBOSS

Some of you may know that I would love to start my own business. Well I'm in the process of doing just that. Just a little blip of redoing one of my courses and finishing my program.

Not because of greed but because of job security in this precarious job market....more

Gone Girl Book Review

All of last week while in Missouri, I spent reading Gone Girl. I was especially enjoying the fall weather that they had and reading on my Kindle with a cold Shocktop (Honey Crisp Apple Wheat!) sitting in my lounge chair. It was absolutely perfect. And how I spent basically a portion of every day. I was super excited to read Gone Girl....more
