katakotThis the city in which my novel-in-progress is set — Katakot. I never seemed to need a map for Ondinium, in the Clockwork Heart trilogy, but Right of Rule is deeply embedded in the city, with the characters doing a lot of traveling around and referencing of locations. My rough-draft readers told me they were having trouble visualizing the areas, so I decided that commissioning a map would be a...

The Secret History of Wonder Woman by Jill Lepore

I was never a Wonder Woman fan as a girl. I didn't like her outfit and I thought she was a wimp —- a golden lasso that detects lies, whatever. Nevertheless, I found The Secret History of Wonder Woman to be absolutely fascinating! How could I have gue ...more

I wasn't expecting much out of this novel; it was just one of those random free downloads that sounded mildly interesting. However, I quickly came to appreciate a number of aspects of the novel, including the snappish, irritable relationship between ...more
Flight of Magpies by K.J. Charles

Another great book in the "A Charm of Magpies" series — and given that it resolves most of the loose ends in the series, I fear it may be the last. But let's hope not...

Artifice

I enjoyed Woolfson's Artifice, a Lambda Literary Awards finalist, a great deal. This m/m graphic novel's inspiration in Alien and Aliens is pretty obvious, even though there are no aliens in the picture — the replicants' white "blood" and the main ch ...more
Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King

This is more thriller than horror; King does that, sometimes, although I confess to enjoying his horror more. This is a serial-killer thriller, essentially, and the premise is old hat — the killer who never got caught taunting the retired cop who nev ...more

A young woman in Delhi is offered a chance to become the CEO of one of India's major corporations, if she can pass seven tests of her character. The premise is amusingly unlikely and the story full of high adventure and moral lessons, but it's a fun ...more

Yeah, it's another one of those books about neuroscience, perception, and all the lies we tell ourselves to get by. What can I say? I like this stuff. Full of useful tidbits to sprinkle into your conversations or give you insight into your own self-d ...more

This is by the classic "marshmallow test" researcher, who is describing what self-discipline is, how it manifests in children and affects them the rest of their lives, and how you can cultivate it and evaluate it in others. I found the information th ...more

I should have liked this book more, but I gave up on it after the first couple of chapters, after I realized that it was written for overwhelmed mothers rather than overwhelmed child-free women. (And yes, we can be overwhelmed by life, as well.) If y ...more

“There ain't a man in the world cares about a woman's past until he's thinking of her in his future.”
Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart

“A clockwork heart can't replace the real thing.”
Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart

“Huh? Oh you have a hidden agenda, do you?" She laughed. His straight-faced humor always surprised her. "You promised me you didn't."
"There is nothing hidden about it," he replied. My objective is obvious. I've decided I'd rather have you describe me as 'sweet' than a 'slagging pain in the tailset.'"
"Really?"
"Well..." he looked up from the bag. "Maybe not in public."
"I might be able to confine myself to saying it in private, if you gave me a reason." Taya met his eyes, and he blushed.”
Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart
