Woodcutter Sibling Birth Order

Good morning, everyone! Lily asked a very good question on another post: “What’s the birth order of the Woodcutter siblings?” Obviously, Monday-Sunday are easy to figure out.

Genre Chick Interview: Luc Reid

Back on “Take Your Princesses-in-Training to Work” Day, Ariell and Kassidy helped me create a great questionnaire that I could send out to the ever-growing list of authors on my to-interview-list. After I sent the interview out, Ariell then started formatting all the interviews into posts for me. Hooray! We start with my dearest longtime friend, Luc Reid. (Some…

He’s editing M-Brane’s 2020 VISIONS anthology (pub date TBA). The theme of the anthology is stories set in the not-too-distant future — namely, 2020. It’s a title that begs…
