Christina McMullen is a sci-fi and urban fantasy author who dreams of jetpacks and electric sheep.

Christina enjoys travel, vegan cooking, modern and classic art, and championing the progressive nature of ebooks and independent authors. She is obsessed with robots and the internet, and revels in the fact that she was fortunate enough to have been born in an era where she was able to witness the 'future' finally come into being. And for the record, the year 2000 will forever be the future no matter how far it falls into the past. Call it a perk of growing up at the end of a millennium.

In 2014, she took a vow to read and review only independently published authors. It is unlikely that this will ever change as she has since dedicated the tim

This could be as simple as walking to the kitchen and getting a snack or moving on to something else for a few days. Typically, the longer I stare at a blank page, the worse it gets. Sooner or later, the 'Ah ha!' moment will hit me.(less)

Writing a children's book is tough and I have to give credit to those who can write something that will keep the interest wiggly, squirmy little humans with a five second attention span.
I do have plans to write a few more young adult tales and I may even write something in the middle grade category (8-13 yrs old) but I'm no Dr. Seuss. ;)(less)

Sometimes, before you move forward,you have to take a look back. As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm on a writing hiatus for the summer. It's been almost two months now since my last book came out and I can honestly say, this break was a great idea.

But the reasons why will have to be covered in a later post, because today, we're looking back. Specifically, back to my very first series of Read more of this blog post »

I don't import them. When I write a review, I copy it to both Amazon and Goodreads. I suspect others do the same. I know that if you have a Kindle device synced up to Goodreads, it will prompt you for a review that will then be posted to both, but I don't have my Goodreads and Kindle accounts on the same email.

I sure as heck hope we are allowed to contact our friends who review, damit!
I don't know what it is, but your books are drawing out the comparisons for me. Though I've got to write up Old Pops' last beer and I don't have anything to compare it to. Just finished that one as well and you've got me hooked! I'll be buying more books soon!


Dwayne Fry They say we're not supposed to contact people when they review our books, but - well, you know. **** the rules.

Your review saying "Mr. Meeker" is like The Twilight Zone written by Kurt Vonnegut was, possibly, the greatest compliment I could imagine. Thank you.

The latest, saying "Happy Clown Burger" will appeal to fans of South Park and Jean Shepherd... I dunno. Imagining Jean Shepherd's take on South Park had me laughing for about five minutes straight. I love it!

Did somebody say awkward? Awkward is my middle name! :D
Trust me, I know exactly what you mean though. I try to put as much thought into reviews as possible but yes, it can be tough! And don't get me stared on book blurbs. I mean, we're authors, we write for a living. Why is non-book writing so hard?
