Book review: “A Map to the Stars” by Ashley Hutchison

I received “A Map to the Stars” by Ashley Hutchison, published by Lost Boys Press, as an e-ARC (advanced review copy) in exchange for an honest review.  Form in literature is something that is often relegated to the province of poetry, with novels often devoid of experimentation in rhythm, grammatical structure, and arranged in theContinue reading “Book review: “A Map to the Stars” by Ashley Hutchison”

JonasContinue reading “Short Fiction: The Golem’s Embrace”

Enjoy! “Strong Women” By Denise Ruttan Suzi did not think of herself as a strong woman. When people talked about strong women, she didn’t know what they meant.

I don’t have much to say these days because I am working on DRAGON GIRL so I thought I’d work on these as well to keep myContinue reading “Drabble: The Creature That Steals Bodies”
