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?

CagedI bought a copy of Caged, by Bey Deckard. I’ve had this for a while, but never got around to reading it. Recently, several people have recommended I give Deckard a chance, so I dug this out the TBR pile.


Description from Goodreads:

Sheltered and lonely, Jon’s life changes drastically when a strange ship sails into the harbour of his small port town one day. Trapped between the possessive pirate...

Thank you Linda! It all looks wonderful. I saw your lovely review too. I'll have to look into the Tiptree. Off to Twitter, FB, etc.

Mel Of Bacchus Wow, you read a lot of books! Thanks for finding and friending me on here too Sadie!! Blessings xx


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.

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:

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.

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

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. :-)
