About this author

Sadie's bio used to claim she hails from the Southeastern United States, lives in Northwestern England, is a fan of all things Japanese, holds degrees in Anthropology/Comparative Religion, International Criminology, and Social Change, loves local coffee shops, geek culture, everything bookish, and tea (steaming with milk and sweet iced), as well as that she is married with two daughters and an imaginary dog. She's repatriated and now owns a real, true-to-life, only modernly neurotic husky/malamute mix. The rest is still true.


BAMF


I borrowed a copy of S.J.D. Peterson‘s novel, BAMF. (Thanks, S.)


Description from Goodreads:

With his fauxhawk, sleeve tattoos, and visible piercings, Ridley Corbin has the whole bad ass vibe going on in spades. The image serves him well as the self-proclaimed protector of the underdog, and he wants nothing more than to be Alex Firestone’s hero.

Alex, a mild-mannered library assistant, has mo...

I have to give this book credit for being EXACTLY what it sets itself out to be in its blurb. However, it is that and only that. There is no more to it. A man breaks up with his girlfriend of 9 years because he finally decides to admit he's gay. (Mos...more

I have to be honest, BAMF and I didn't become BFF, or BF, or even just Fs. I think the only part of the BAMF acronym I'd call accurate was the B. Yeah, it was B. Confused? You probably should be.

Now, the writing was fine. The editing was fine. Indiv...more

Liz Thank you for your words :)


Steelwhisper Thanks for the friending! :) And I as well have to warn of potentially ranting reviews...

I'm all for snarky friends! Keeps life interesting. (And yes, a fabulous and should be oft used phrase it was.)

Of course yes! By all means. The book deserves to be in print and I'd be delighted to have contributed even the few small words. The groups can be addictive, be careful. :-)

Harv Griffin Hey, Sadie!

Finally getting around to a Print On Demand version of DAUGHTER MOON. I plan to put a slightly abridged version of your review of MOON on the back cover. Please say yes? My graphic artist wants fewer review words; I want tinier review words: but I think she's going to win. Hope you are doing well. In other news, I finally joined a GoodReads group: something about Time Travel . . . Cheers! @hg47

Wow, that sounds right up my alley. You're right, The Weeping Empress might fall on the edge of the category. I think your Emily Kane novels do too. I'm definitely going to try and find a good translation or two and look into it further. Wikipedia had a list of the most well known books, but not if they are in English. But look:

http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/4...
http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/4...

Goodreads has two small groups of Wuxia readers. I'd bet they could point us in the right direction. At the very least they have bookshelves. Thank for sharing. I'm a little excited now.


Jacques Antoine Hi, Sadie. A colleague of mine recently told me about "wuxia", which apparently is a genre of Chinese martial arts fiction. It's usually about a heroic figure who protects helpless innocents.

Anyway, as soon as I heard this, it struck me that The Weeping Empress is like wuxia, though Muhjah and Senka strain the type a bit. I suppose my books are a more distant cousin of wuxia. One thing the genre is known for is gripping descriptions of fight scenes.

I thought I might read a few to try to learn something from them, especially about choreographing the fight scenes. The trick is finding readable translations. But I've heard that one or two have been translated well recently.
