Short Tuesday Returns! #43: “The Black Beast of Belterre” by Mary Jo Putney

Short Tuesday makes a triumphant return this week--hurrah! Normally I reserve this spot for horror-tinged SFF, but I thought I'd do something a bit different this week, so actually turned to a novella by romance author Mary Jo Putney. It's a Beauty and the Beast retelling, which anyone who's spent a little time around these… Continue reading Short Tuesday Returns! #43: “The Black Beast of Belterre” by Mary Jo Putney

Predictions for how COVID-19 will impact the book industry

So let's get this out of the way at the front end of things: I am not an economist, nor am I a fortune teller. 🙂 However, I do like to think I have a decent understanding of the publishing industry, so I thought it might be interesting to put together some predictions for how… Continue reading Predictions for how COVID-19 will impact the book industry
