It’s almost the end of January but I have a new article on Sartorial Geek! Why is it important that I mention it’s almost the end of January? Because my article has to do with New Year’s Resolutions and despite what you may think it’s not too late to figure that out, especially if you’re …

Another new article of mine is up on Sartorial Geek! With the release of Midnight Sun I’ve got vampires on the brain and wanted to share some of my favourite vampire books that aren’t Twilight and Dracula. You can read the article here. What are your favourite vampire books?

“The facts, such as they were, were simple: Alicia was found alone with Gabriel’s body; only her fingerprints were on the gun. There was never any doubt she killed Gabriel.
