Bloggers, Assemble! (A Blogosphere Experiment)

Who’s ready to try an unknown blogger experiment? I’m in. Hope it’s fun.  

Arm Chair BEA: Non-fiction

I admit, I’m not much of a non-fiction reader. I like the escape I get from reading fiction. That’s not to say I haven’t read a few in the past. Funny thing is, I’ve liked every non-fiction book I’ve read so I’m not sure why I don’t read them as a rule. Most of the […]

Armchair BEA

I can’t believe I almost missed this! I attended BEA in New York last year and loved it. By far my favorite part was the Blogger’s Conference the day before, which I attended at the time as a publishing professional. My coworker and I set a goal that we would try to attend the next […]

Memorial Day Battle of the New Computer

It’s been a few days since my last post. This is mostly due to the craziness of the last week of school and the Memorial Day weekend. But also, my laptop started to give me problems. So naturally, I decided it was time for an upgrade. Two years are about average now for laptops and […]

Amazon to Publish Fan Fiction

It’s interesting to watch the big boys of the book world duke it out for the next big thing to keep their burgeoning bottom lines in the black. A little over a year a go, Random House gobbled up E. L. James and her successful Fifty Shades trilogy, a former Twilight fan fiction in another […]

Star Trek: Into Darkness

What a wild ride! Star Trek: Into Darkness is a triumph. From the opening scene with a race again hostile natives and an erupting volcano to the ending with the hope of new discoveries, this movie has it all–epic bromance, humor, genetically enhanced beings, Klingons, a wannabe warlord, suicide bomber, explosions, death, mayhem, space battles, […]

My Inner Trekkie is Showing

Star Trek: Into Darkness officially releases this Friday, but I have tickets to my local theater for tomorrow. I haven’t been this excited for a movie release since I don’t know when. I’m still nursing the emotional wounds for missing the nine-minute trailer shown during The Hobbit. And more than a little frustrated that I […]

Simulated Child Birth for Men

This video, “Men Experience ‘Simulated Child Birth,” is too funny. It makes me wonder what new torture devices we will think of next in our never-ending pursuit to prove that “my pain is worse than yours.” Haha! When I was pregnant with my children all that was available for my husband to experience was the pregnancy suit. Not that my […]

Marvel’s Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Full Trailer Is Online!

Had to share this new series coming to ABC this fall. I may have to start watching network television again!
