Arthurian retelling.Continue reading “Book Review: The Children of Camelot”

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)”

The Revenge of Magic (Book Review)

So I’ve finally dug my grubby little claws into James Riley’s latest series, The Revenge of Magic!

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!”

Writing Update: June 25, 2021

So I accidentally started reading my first NaNoWriMo novel yesterday.
A couple of clarifications here:
I’m not one of those people who as done NaNo forever and a day,
When I say “accidentally,” I don’t mean I fell in a hole and remarkably discovered my old manuscript in the mud, typed up and tied together with a ribbon.

The Bi-Annual Epic Book Haul

Nefarious. That was our code word. No, we weren’t burgling a dragon or planning a spy mission. But we were sneaking off on a delicious adventure. The Epic Library Book Sale. That’s right! Twice a year, one of the big warehouse rooms at the fairgrounds is filled to the brim with books, and whoever hasContinue reading “The Bi-Annual Epic Book Haul”

Writing Update: June Mermaids and Paganini

Unblocked. I think. Sort of. I am writing about mermaids. Or I will be. Right now I am writing about a shy, stuffy little professor-type in 1901 who blushes whenever a pretty girl is in the room and who is following the plot about as much as a sleepy cat chasing a pussy willow. WhichContinue reading “Writing Update: June Mermaids and Paganini”
