Brokenhearted, I Read

by Calee Jordan


I am a heartbroken reader. The end of a series is a reasonable guess for my ennui, but it’s not that simple. In the last two years, the awesome Curse of the Gods series has been one of my favorite reads. The protagonist is an accident-prone smart ass who draws five beautiful, strong, and arrogant […]


Wind

by Cathrin Hagey


One day, when my daughter was about four years old, she said, “My breath speaks to me.” I was amazed by the ancient wisdom implied in this adorable insight. Breath, wind, wisdom, and genius have long been associated with one another, in religion and mythology, in fairy tales and poetry.     Who has seen […]



Speaking of trust

by Calee Jordan


Speaking of trust— Yes, we were talking about trust just last month (It’s about Control).  I’ve noticed a weird trust trend.  Romance, fantasy, and sci-fi novels share a level of trust that I find impossible to believe.  It’s not that the protagonist trusts the villain, although that happens fairly regularly. In Chanda Hahn’s Reign (book […]

Author D. L. Carter has been called crazy, restless optimist, pessimist, lazy, a crank with delusional invisible friends who have the greatest, dangerous ideas. She is also an excellent science fiction and fantasy author. Please welcome “D” to No Wasted Ink. D. L. Carter (Dee Leana, call me ‘D’) was decanted from her incubation pod […]


OMG, I heart Rachel Morgan!

by Calee Jordan


Warning: Spoilers will follow. Can I contract swimmer’s ear from headsets? For the last month, I’ve worn headsets everywhere—in the yard, when I have a spare moment at work, in the tub, in the car (well, the headset covers only one ear then). I’m so addicted to my current set of audio books that my […]

A huge fan of fantasy and medieval history, Author Elizabeth Gaines Johnston loves weaving complicated storylines together to create characters who feel like real people.

A Need for Speed

by Calee Jordan


Good grief. It’s 4 a.m. Despite my frequent yawns and drooping eyelids, I’m still awake, still reading. See, there’s this book, an interesting story with a cool description, so I started reading just before bedtime. I told myself I would read one chapter before bed. Then the characters’ emotions engulfed me. The details had me […]
