Monthly Wrap Up: November 2019

October was mostly about catching up, and cram in as many things as possible before I headed to the UK toward the end of the month. I had a great time both in London and Bristol - article coming soon, I promise, unlike the WorldCon one... - and it charged me with energy and good feels. It was awesome to meet old friends and make new ones and I already can't wait for the next BristolCon. But until I get myself together, take a look at what we were up to this past month. We are getting near the end of phase 1 in SPFBO and we are done with slush piling so we'll start announcing our semi-finalists real soon. But we also read some other great books too, and hosted awesome authors.  Hoo boy, but November was crazy busy as we got to the end of SPFBO 5's Phase 1 and I tried to catch up to myself after my little time out in October - with some more time out. Oh well. I had some needed down time and I also got offered to work from home, which resulted in a week spent getting both my room and office ready for the switch - meaning I had to clean, sort things, find place for everything and make my desk ready to function as it should, instead of a surface where I could throw clothes and stuff in a heap. Er, yeah, so, a lot happened both in my personal life and on the blog, and now I'll show you what we were up to here at RockStarlit BookAsylum.

Monthly Wrap Up: October 2019

October was mostly about catching up, and cram in as many things as possible before I headed to the UK toward the end of the month. I had a great time both in London and Bristol - article coming soon, I promise, unlike the WorldCon one... - and it charged me with energy and good feels. It was awesome to meet old friends and make new ones and I already can't wait for the next BristolCon. But until I get myself together, take a look at what we were up to this past month. We are getting near the end of phase 1 in SPFBO and we are done with slush piling so we'll start announcing our semi-finalists real soon. But we also read some other great books too, and hosted awesome authors.  August went away in a blink of an eye and I'm both sad and happy about it. I had some great times, but I also got damned behind on EVERYTHING. September will be about trying to catch up to myself.

Author Spotlight: The Shrouded Evil by Ulff Lehmann – Short Story

I guess I don't have to introduce Ulff Lehmann, author of Shattered Dreams and soon to be released Shattered Hopes. We've had quite a nice chat about writing and fantasy all things fun in an interview before. This time he shares a short story with us about the real evil behind the mask of kindness. This is not a fantasy story but deals with a very serious topic. How far would you go to keep your family out of harm's way? And what would you do if the worst already happened?

Author Spotlight: Soundtracks by A.M. Justice – Guest Post

Amanda, like a hawk sensing its prey, swept in and took the opportunity. Which made me pretty happy, because, well, you know, I'm a music addict, so finally someone combined my two love: books and music! Amanda gives us a glimpse how she uses music during her story. This article is rather interesting, so hopefully you'll like it as much as I do!
