Linking Caps [05/03/2017]


Get on your linking caps, because here’s a bunch of things I’ve been reading around the Internet lately, and think you should be reading too. From writing resources to books, film + TV, and even a bit of true crime. (What can I say? Sometimes my reading is eclectic.)

The Writer’s Block Tarot


A neat thing arrived in the mailbox this morning: The Writer’s Block Tarot! I’m not a Tarot person as such, but I liked the idea of a tool that helped me think about different aspects of my characters and story. Plus it just looked fun.

So to test it I got a-shuffling, then laid out a relationship spread for Livia and Aspasia, my two (romantic) leads for my adult fantasy The Cantia Covenant.

Book Review: The Silver Kiss


The Silver Kiss was first published in 1990, making it one of the oldest YA vampire novels around. The first book in the original Vampire Diaries quartet, The Awakening, would not be published until the next year, and the only other YA vampire novels preceding it are Meredith Ann Piece’s Darkangel series from the 80s and The Shiny Narrow Grin by Jane Gaskell which was published all the way back in 1964. Because of this, as well as its traditional gothic feel and heavy emotional weight, The Silver Kiss stands out among YA vampire novels – especially those of the post-Twilight era more than a decade later.
