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.

On a side note, I use GR and my shelves to keep track of books I've read, hope to read, have been asked to read, intend never to read, etc. Thus they are full to overflowing. Don't judge, yeah?

I also keep Kindle-Lendab

Late last year, I found myself so annoyed at authors who fill the synopsis section of their book's description with so much praise I can't decipher what the book is actually about that I wrote a whole post about it. You can read it here.


This morning I had a similar experience, leading me to a similar response. I'll start with a couple screenshots, see if you can guess...

Sadie Forsythe added a status update: Just went through my 'please lend me' shelf and my library consortium's online catalogue, requesting anything on the shelf that they have. So many are indies (and a lot of those MM indies) that there wasn't a lot of crossover, but enough that I should make a dent in that shelf this summer. :-)

For Real by Alexis  Hall
"If this hadn't been written by Alexis Hall I sincerely doubt that a 400 + page book, written solely about a relationship would have been able to hold my attention. Let alone one that was BDSM/ kink.
But it was, and it did and it was one of the best..." Read more of this review »

For Real by Alexis  Hall
"When this first popped up on my feed, I was a bit skeptical. 400+ pages of a 19-year-old Dom? It didn't sound fun. But I was very obviously wrong. 'For Real' takes age, society's expectations, BDSM, and sex, and basically turns everything on its h..." Read more of this review »

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.
