Introducing Parallel Magic: The Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Show

If you read my January update or follow me on social media, you’ve probably caught the unofficial announcements… but now, I’m pleased to officially introduce Parallel Magic: The Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Show.

Parallel Magic PodcastIn this podcast, Jonas Lee (my friend and fellow author) and I discuss science fiction and fantasy novels over a drink. We started the show to create a virtual book club, where sci-fi/fantasy readers from around the world could chat about the books we love while enjoying the simple camaraderie of a drink (alcohol optional, of course!).

Thus far, we’ve aired two episodes. The first dives into Scythe by Neal Shusterman, along with all the existential crises a book about (im)mortality can bring. The second episode, which aired today, covers Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, as well as my first embarrassing Champagne pop, epic space battles, and the book’s brain-blowing (and not-so-brain-blowing twists).

Desertera Book Club: Welcome & Name Meanings

For those of you who have read and enjoyed The Cogsmith’s Daughter (Desertera #1), I’ve started a new playlist over on my YouTube channel called ‘Desertera Book Club.’ I hope this channel can be a forum for you to ask me questions, discuss the series as it progresses, and learn some fun tidbits and behind-the-scenes facts about the book.

The first video is spoiler FREE. It covers the pronunciation of some of the main characters’ names, as well as which names in the novel hold personal significance for me (and now will for those of you in certain geeky fandoms!).

I’m not sure how often I will post these videos on my website, so if you want to make sure you see them all, be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel.

Thanks for watching!

*Note: The Brisbane Lions is the team that rivals Collingwood. Thought I’d clear that up, lest my Aussie peeps shame me!
