Self-Publishing vs. Traditional Publishing – Basic Overview

Book Review: Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard – The Hammer of Thor

Oh my goodness there are quite a few disclaimers for this book. First and foremost the ending does have spoilers for The Heroes of Olympus series.

Book Review: Percy Jackson and The Olympians – The Sea of Monsters

The Percy Jackson series continues to surprise me with how much I’ve been enjoying it.

This in mind, it felt like Riordan’s books would be a perfect match … Continue reading Book Review: Percy Jackson and The Olympians – The Lightning Thief
