Here is my promised share of how I sold 1000 books and became a bestseller (in Canada and Australia, at any rate) over the 10 days of the Christmas/New Year holiday. Settle in, folks, this is going to be a long post. First up, what I did was nothing ground breaking, just plain old advertising […]

Having conquered my internet problems (unbelievable amount of time wasted, convincing my service provider their supplied router was dead, but they finally sent a new one), I am now up to my armpits in accounts, it being TAX RETURN month.

Just squeezing one more review in before New Year, I thought this looked a little different to the usual diet of kick ass heroines, and I was right. The blending of the modern day setting with the old Celtic gods is well done, and setting the story in Dublin, Ireland, made for a fresh read. […]

The set piece, special effects-heavy battle scenes, both machine […]
