I get to go to outer space, to fantasy realms, to big cities and small towns and foreign countries. I get to imagine other people--how they live, what challenges they face, and how they fall in love. I get to imagine a better world, and then I get to share it with other people. What's not to love?(less)

Meet the Scions--the elite progeny of the ruling families, whose wealth and privilege gets them anything they want...except a future.

Party-girl Princess Ione is the most spoiled of the rotten, and at the Academy where she and her contemporaries learn the skills they need to one day run the star system, one of their first lessons is that their privilege comes with a price. Their social capital depends on both what they know, and who they know. The right friends are the difference between influence and obscurity. Ione plays fast and loose with her reputation via the probabilities exchange, manipulating her social ranking for short-term gain, while long-term independence seems further away with every passing day. When a gossip journalist catches her in a compromising position with her boyfriend, the chase to retrieve the embarrassing holo-feeds takes them out of their gilded cage and on a journey to the depths of the planet beneath their strato-scraper homes, to the lies shoring up the crumbling foundations of their society itself.(less)

Indie Weekend: Being Scared

If you met me on the street, you’d never know I walk around with this crazy, delicate balance of being scared and wary versus being excited and eager to see what’s around the next corner.


We like to talk about being brave and fearless and embracing the authentic, but I live in a culture that has about 129 guns for every person living in the US. (to “defend” – your property, your family/loved ones,

When a princess who's no stranger to scandal runs afoul of the secrets of the most powerful cabal on Landfall, even her crown can't protect her from the consequences.

Scandal by Athena Grayson
"Ingenious take on the cult of celebrity, what high society does to give itself meaning, and economics. Add a romantic plot, complex sibling tensions, creepy elements just at the edges, and I'm sold. I'm really excited for more!"
Scandal by Athena Grayson
"Before I go into a deep review of Scandal, I wish to make a quick point. The three star rating is a rounded down rating. I had a huge internal battle of whether I was going to round my three-point-five star rating up or whether I would round it down." Read more of this review »

I have this love-hate relationship with celebrity gossip. I think it's a disturbingly accurate reflection on what we value in our society (versus what we say we value), and it both fascinates and repels me--why do we love watching "beautiful people" See Full Answer
