Here's one for the fans!

There's got to be said for fandom of genre television. The saying "Although they may kill our shows, they may never kill our spirit" comes to mind. Someone probably said that somewhere, but honestly it just came off the top of my head. Yet it fits fandom so well. The joke goes that no other fans have been beating down as much as sci-fi fans. We've had a bunch of shows dangled in our faces like a piece of yarn in front of a hungry cat itching for some attention. Then, just as we're getting ready to dive in, they yank it back into the land of cancellation. Dvds are released named as the complete series...and we all know good and well that the complete series wasn't even close to what the show's potential presented.

Yet we still buy and think of what-if.

Well, that was then. Before the land of the internet. And this is now the world of podcasts, forums and much fan interaction still exchanging ideas and sharing a love for their favorite shows.

So here's to you fans.

A heads-up for fans of Blood Ties.

I spotted a podcast coming soon called Bite Back: The Blood Ties Podcast which should be coming soon to: http://bloodtiespodcast.org

Also premiering is the Charlie Jade podcast over at http://www.charliejade.net/. Episode commentary will be provided by series creator Robert Wertheimer, and head writer Alex Epstein, and maybe contributions from a couple other series writers as well according to the CJ Podcast forum posts. If you're looking for a little something different in your sci-fi, definitely check out Charlie Jade because this is one show that definitely deserves to be up with the classics. I'm going to dive into the commentary and catch up as they're on Episode 4 already.

Keep up the fight for great shows that are gone but definitely not forgotten!

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen ~ Giveaway + Book Blast + Kindle Scout Nom

I'm so excited about this! Annette K Larsen hooked me when I first read her YA Fantasy Romance Missing Lily and I'm jazzed to say she has a new release out! Annette's book is also on Kindle Scout. A link is included below to check out the book and nominate her book! Enjoy! ~R



Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
