“Elizabeth”/”May,” by Kelli Green (A Short Story/Book Review)

Here’s the thing… I don’t usually read novels. I can’t say I really read more than three in a single year and, as time goes on, I find myself more and more immersed in poetry, lyric essay, critical theory, memoir, and other forms. Something I do read slightly more occasionally, however, is the well-written short …

Suite for Barbara Loden, by Nathalie Léger (A Book Review)

I read Nathalie Léger‘s Suite for Barbara Loden, and now I’m going to rant about it. I’m not going to lie —  I didn’t even plan on reading it in the beginning. It was assigned for class, but I missed the screening of Wanda, the movie this reading is based on. I learned about the …

Why Joining the Twitter #WritingCommunity and Becoming an Indie Author Are Two of the Best Decisions I Ever Made for Myself

One of my absolute favorite things about being an independent author is the level of transparency I’m able to have with my readership. I have the extraordinary privilege of involving my readers, potential readers, friends, family, followers, and sometimes even authors aspiring to go indie in every single step of my writing and publishing processes …

I’ve been following Momus Najmi on Twitter and Instagram for some time now, and I’ve found his unique and insightful posts deeply refreshing in a sea of social media sameness. Najmi’s voice on social media is identical to his voice in Mumblings of a Fool: honest, fearless, wise, and unrelenting. He’s that person who speaks …

“Nefelibata,” by Athena Belle-Fairplay (A Book Review)

I don’t usually write book reviews; as a matter of fact, this is only the second one I’ve ever posted on this blog. My [unintentional] “celibacy” in regards to not blogging about other authors’ books persisted for a long while without any glitches.  It’s not exactly like I was going out of my way to …

On Thestrals and Death

Original piece written on July 1st, 2019. I can finally see the thestrals. Even though I was an avid lover of the Harry Potter series throughout my early childhood and teenage years, I never gave thestrals, the characters they concerned, nor the implications of their attributes much serious thought… That is, until today, when I watched …

“Six Strings and a Bottle,” by Swan Workman (A Book Review)

Six Strings and a Bottle is a quick and wonderful read by Swan Workman which goes hand-in-hand with its corresponding music (as it seems was intended by the author). The writing style is, without a doubt, packed with a skill, sentiment, and eloquence that makes it enticing even on its own. As for the actual story …
