ARCs, Recommends, and Giveaways! (and one very sleepy violinist)

This isn’t an April Fool’s joke. You really are seeing another rare post from bookmarkedone! Please, contain your enthusiasm. I know, I know, you missed me. I missed me too. Okay, the point is that I have exciting news. Bookmarkedone is an official advance reader for L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future VolumeContinue reading “ARCs, Recommends, and Giveaways!

Dragonfest Recap, Part II

So teakettles and dragon scales! Off we go again on Part II of my incredibly belated Dragonfest 2021 recap. Let’s just pretend it’s going to be well worth the wait. To set the scene (for those readers who have understandably forgotten): It is October 31. I am at one of my favorite places in theContinue reading “Dragonfest Recap, Part II”

The Sword Umbrella

So most of the time I think my life is pretty boring. I get up in the morning, have tea and a bagel, classes, violin rehearsals, work, I read books, cry over Silmarillion fanart. Okay, mostly boring. Except for the violin parts. Ordinary life is ordinary life. So I don’t post about it, because whoContinue reading “The Sword Umbrella”

Just Musician Things–An Update

So I just finished two hours of violin recordings. It’s a really, really weird experience. In a recital, you’ve got an audience. For a recording, it’s you, the crew, a pianist, and a gloriously empty theatre. That’s not to say there isn’t an adrenaline rush. There is. It’s almost impossible, even to another musician, toContinue reading “Just Musician Things–An Update”

Life off the Page Update

I met the Goblin King today. And Queen Elizabeth I. And milady Fleur, whom we usually call the Squirrel. And the Knights of Mayhem, and at least four Plague doctors, and a giant crow (or was it a raven?), and a dragon named Lily and someone who looked like Robin Hood… …there was also aContinue reading “Life off the Page Update”

In light of your concern…

Hi. I’m okay, thanks for checking. I know there were probably some of you who wondered if my corner of the universe had imploded since I didn’t make a September 22 Hobbit Day post. I am sorry about that. I also don’t have a great excuse. I think I blinked at the beginning of SeptemberContinue reading “In light of your concern…”

Writing Update: August 31, 2021

There’s something wonderful and terrifying about starting a new story. Extra terrifying if you’re working in a genre where the nerds will kill you if you desecrate their sacred rites but will not give you the time of day if you don’t make something new. Also corpses. Thankfully not mine. This time. In case you’reContinue reading “Writing Update: August 31, 2021”

Writing Update (August 14, 2021)

So in case you were wondering if I was hauled off by an errant dragon, got hopelessly lost somewhere between Les Miserables and the present day, or just quit blogging, Hi. I’m not dead. I’d say I needed a vacation, but I’ve been spending almost every spare minute editing a half-written novel, so that wouldContinue reading “Writing Update (August 14, 2021)”

Blogiversary!

Drumroll, please, for BookmarkedOne’s second blogiversary! I’m still here! Woo! So first order of business is to say thank you to my 181 followers for putting up with my book snobbery and reading my late-night rants about dragons and tea (or sometimes dragons drinking tea). Thank you. Your comments usually wind up making my day.Continue reading “Blogiversary!”
