On the blog, Nicolette Stewart of @bookpunks fame lists 10 wonderful post-apocalyptic novels written by women!

There are 1000 ways to end the world, and fictional explorations of those possibilities have been popular (more so whenever disaster seems near at hand) for going on 200 years. But why do we love to watch the world burn?  Is it a desire to start over?  A…

On the blog, @CliftonHill offers his own take on why gritty fantasy sells w/ a healthy side of #GameofThrones

Visceral, terrible, gut wrenching, laden with death and loss. Why does it sell? And why in the genre of luminescent fairy wings, immortal wizards, and chivalrous knights that cannot die? Why do we want to bring in the grime, the stink of malice and the…

On the blog, @sarahremywrites talks about non-binary characters and writing toward acceptance.

Non-Binary Genders are gender identities that don’t fit within the accepted binary of male and female. People can feel they are both, neither, or some mixture thereof. It might be easier to view gender as a 1-dimensional spectrum with male on one end,…
