The Writing Routine for one Author (Me) by Geoffrey Saign: Guardian, The Choice: Magical Beasts Book One Blog Tour

First off, I’d say my writing routine is to write all the time, whenever I can. That won’t go on forever. It can’t or I’ll become the world’s biggest hermit. Currently I’m trying to launch two series and some nonfiction and want to succeed financially at it, so I’m pushing like crazy. When I begin

The Bands of Mourning (Mistborn: The Alloy Era #3) by Brandon Sanderson: Book Review

The Bands of Mourning are the mythical metal minds owned by the Lord Ruler, said to grant anyone who wears them the powers that the Lord Ruler had at his command. Hardly anyone thinks they really exist. A kandra researcher has returned to Elendel with images that seem to depict the Bands, as well as

Why You Need to Vote: 2019 Election

The news is rarely positive. I can understand many people taking time away from new sites, focusing on themselves and enjoying their lives. I do this myself, all the time! I check the news once or twice a week, but I make sure never to spend too much time on it unless there is something

Supergirl – ‘Confidence Women’ – Season 5, Episode 6: TV Review

SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 3/5 This was essentially a backstory episode, and as much as I enjoyed it, I’m not sure why we needed it.

The Flash – ‘Kiss Kiss Breach Breach’ – Season 6, Episode 5: TV Review

SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 3/5 This wasn’t a bad episode. It was essentially a filler episode that gave some clues for the future of the season (the near future, that is). It was Cisco’s episode and he shone, he really did. The character is so close to many of our hearts so watching him best

Arrow – ‘Present Tense’ – Season 8, Episode 4: TV Review

SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 4/5 Arrow keeps going strong. The meeting of the future and present heroes of the show has had us all waiting impatiently for this past week, and the episode did not disappoint. The episode did a great job of balancing the emotional turmoil of the characters – when certain things were

Batwoman – ‘Mine is a Long Sad Tale’ – Season 1, Episode 5: TV Review

SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 4/5 This has been a strong start for the arrowverse this week. First Supergirl, and now Batwoman, have released their best episodes of the season. Alice’s backstory was more interested than I could have hoped for. It’s creepy, disturbing, and makes for a brilliant explanation for how messed up Beth/Alice is.
