Well, Isn't That Awesome?

Back on August 10, I wrote a thing. A review of the new Serenity comics from Dark Horse. A few people read it, gave me some neato Facebook comments & that was that. Then something remarkable happened.

Two or three weeks ago, I got a note from a friend. Blue Skirt Productions was wondering - would I like to become a monthly contributor, reviewing comics/graphic novels for them? After roughly a minute or so of going "squee!" and reading the message aloud to my husband, I enthusiastically agreed. (Prior to this, I'd also submitted a microfiction story that is published here. August was good to me!)

I posted my first submission last night for their review & let me tell you, for me, writing when you know with absolute certainty that someone with an editor's eye is going to read your work is weird. Usually, on the occassion I would update this blog, I'd just kind of bang out an entry in a couple of hours. That review took several days. Then more time. Then finally I said, "fuck it" and submitted. So far so good. :)

I'll post at least a link here, or perhaps I'll be able to post the text itself as long as I link back. I'll have to check. Anyway, next week will bring the review of the first 6 issues of Red Sonja by Gail Simone.

Talk to you soon!


  1. One of the first literary reviewers was Edgar Allen Poe; great company to have.

  2. Indeed it is! I've always liked Poe. I only hope my reviews are worthy of the comparison.
