Best read of 2017

Posted on January 15, 2018 at 12:07pm 0 Comments

The last 18 months in my life have been unpredictable, and not in good ways. Now that my health issues seem to have quieted down, it's past time I posted here.

As a freelance reviewer for Foreword Reviews magazine, I get to read free books of above-average quality from independent presses. The standout- read for last year was An Unkindness of Ghosts by Rivers Solomon. You can find my review here:…

Return to BSFS

Posted on July 6, 2016 at 11:16pm 2 Comments

Wow. Nearly 2 yrs since I last posted here? Well, I could trot out the usual excuses (all of which are valid, btw), but what's the point? It'd be a long list of illness (physical and mental), lack of money and motivation, etc. blah woof.

So. I'm back here, for now. Looking forward to what's been happnin since I was last here. Book reccs welcomed. Last one I read by a non-white person was Errick Nunnally's Blood for the Sun, which I liked a lot. Reviewed it for Foreword Reviews…

Sites like BSFS provide members with the opportunity to promote their work on this site. So, is there a marketing tool that all of the above could benefit from with minimal $$ outlay?…

Thank goodness winter's over

Posted on June 5, 2014 at 4:46pm 0 Comments

The snow mountains at the end of my driveway have been gone about a month. Much snow descended on my village this winter, much-needed water to replenish underground aquifers in the area. With the increase in sunshine, my depression has again faded back; more smiles and laughter is always a good thing. :-)…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
