    Long time no blog. Been writing a lot, been busy with work. But I've still found time to read. And what better thing to blog about?

    So I Watched My Little Pony: A New Generation

    So I watched that new small horse movie. It was pretty good. I'd give it a solid 7/10. I don't feel my time was wasted, I enjoyed it. But I would probably not watch it again. (And those of you who follow my reviews, know that a 7 from me is still earned.)

    The Good:

    Does Anyone Know of Recently Published Medical/Science Thrillers?

    Alright, here's an odd request for y'all.

    A friend of mine is working on a query letter for her book. Industry standards means she needs to compare her book to other books on the market. None of my writing group could think of appropriate comparisons, so I thought I'd ask here.

    Happy International Asexuality Day!

    I discovered/realized/admitted I was asexual this year. I've always been asexual, it's just that now I have a word for it.

    Asexuality is a complicated topic, and I'm hardly an expert. But feel to ask any questions you feel like in the comment section. I won't be offended.

    And to start you off, here's some questions I've fielded in real life so far (mostly from my family).

Does Anyone Know of Recently Published Medical/Science Thrillers? · 7:23pm May 3rd, 2021

Alright, here's an odd request for y'all.

A friend of mine is working on a query letter for her book. Industry standards means she needs to compare her book to other books on the market. None of my writing group could think of appropriate comparisons, so I thought I'd ask here.

She's writing a medical/science thriller. The comparative book can be a little loose, but ideally not that dissimilar. The comparison can not be;

  • Self-published
  • Published a long time ago
  • A household name

Any books you know that might fit that description? To start you off, the first comparison she has is Kathy Reichs’s Temperance Brennan series
