You Didn’t Like It? I Want To Know Why.

7 September 2018 Jackie 0

I was going through my draft folder and found this. I’ve been debating on whether I should post it or not. The reason, or the drama which prompted me to write it, has long passed us by; but the idea behind it is still something I believe in. People can […]

We Want To Know…What Are You Reading?

10 January 2018 Jackie 2

I could go on about what I’ve been reading, or realistically how I have not read anything, but I’m more curious to know – what are you reading? Have you found something different? Something new? Something fantastical?  What are you looking forward to releasing this month? In February? In 2018? What new […]

That Intimidating, But Must Read, Series You Love

3 January 2018 Jackie 0

#QOTD: When you first started reading Urban Fantasy (UF), what series did you absolutely love, but had to take a break from because it was just that intense or intimidating as a newbie UF reader? Have you since gone back to that series? Does it seem as intense or intimidating now that […]

It’s the final day of 2017…

31 December 2017 Jackie 0

…so let’s make some noise. Who knows what will happen in 2018. Could be a fantastical year of mischief and superheroes (so can’t wait for all the Marvel movies that are coming); but there could also be an apocalypse. Should we start preparing? If there was an apocalypse, who would […]

Thinking About the Last 10 Years…

29 February 2016 Jackie 16

For awhile now, LE has been a little less than what it used to be. Many of the things that I had been doing daily/weekly haven’t been done and I know they’ve been missed. Especially by me. This April will be my tenth year as a book blogger/reviewer/web journalist (call us […]

Seeking Mythological Diversity

5 March 2015 Jackie 0

After seeing the cover, and reading the blurb, for Richelle Mead’s Soundless, it got me thinking – the far eastern influence is definitely a deviation from what we typically see in Urban Fantasy. From Richelle Mead, the #1 internationally bestselling author of Vampire Academy and Bloodlines, comes a breathtaking new fantasy […]

Author/Guest Articles – Yea or Nay?

28 January 2015 Jackie 0

Online promotion has exploded over the last few years, and I’m starting to wonder if it’s reached it’s peak. During the last few months, I’ve been noticing a trend and I’m wondering… Do guest articles/posts still hold value as a promotional tool, or are there better alternatives? Guest articles do not seem to […]

Escapists Uncensored: What are you reading?

14 January 2015 Jackie 0

For today’s Escapists Uncensored, I’m going to do things a little different. I could go on about what I’ve been reading or how I haven’t been able to read or any number of things. But I’m more curious to know – what are you reading? Have you found something different? Something […]

Escapists Uncensored: Series or Serial Novels

24 December 2014 Natassia 1

I was asked an interesting question about books the other day. It wasn’t the generic favorite book or author question, nor was it asking me about my top ten picks. Instead, this question made me pause to think. Do you prefer books that are traditionally tied together in a series […]
