Results of the Labor Day Weekend Movie Challenge

Well, it’s been a week, and I’m happy to report that I succeeded with my challenge. I watched all four films and earlier this week, that family member watched “Everything Everywhere All At Once” for the first time. The response: Well, he certainly had the most low-key reactions I’ve ever seen anyone make to the film. Continue reading “Results of the Labor Day Weekend Movie Challenge”

7 Years of Lola By the Bay and 2020 Year in Review

A part of me has always found it perplexing that I chose to start up my website at the end of a year. I sometimes wonder, “Why not have waited one more week until you were in the new year before finally starting it?” Well, seven years later, I look back on that decision and I think it worked out, actually. I get to both acknowledge the formation of this constantly growing website and look back on the past year in one go… and… well…. needless to say, this is quite a year to look back on.

Being both the author of two novels and an adamant reader, I’ve become familiar with the process and the way that reviews are written online from other readers from around the world.

In addition, it’s worth noting that this isn’t the only place on the Internet where you can find my short form published works. There’s constantly new content being generated that, unless you follow me on Twitter, you might not know about. That is why starting today, I will link any writings that I have had published or any interviews or reviews that were done during the past week. Continue reading “What Did I Miss?

Special Wednesday Post: The First Review and the Print Editions

Okay, so I wasn’t planning to write another post the day after An Absolute Mind came out, but due to a few new updates, I felt it necessary to share them as soon as possible.

With that said, I’d like to go over the first item. As it turns out, the first review for An Absolute Mind has been out since last week. FanGirlNation Magazine wrote a thoughtful (and positive) review, highlighting specific details they liked about the novel, all the while keeping all the plot twists and other maneuvers under wraps.
