SFINCS Participation Announcement

Good morning, everyone! I just want to announce that I am a judge for the inaugural round of the Speculative Fiction Indie Novella Championship (SFINCS).

SFINCS, pronounced “sphinx”, is a new yearly competition to recognize, honor, and celebrate the talent and creativity present in the indie community. It’s a sister competition to both SPFBO and SPSFC, and it highlights greatness in the novella format in all areas of speculative fiction (fantasy, science fiction, horror, etc.).

I am participating on Team Behind the Musings, which is lead by Tabitha at Behind the Pages and Sue at Sue’s Musings. To learn more about our team, visit Tabitha’s “Meet the Team” post. Below is a collage, created by SFINCS creator Nathan, of our assignments for the SFINCS competitions.

The competition officially started on September 15, so keep an eye out for my SFINCS-related novella reviews! The competition will conclude on March 31, 2024. Follow along on Discord or Twitter.

September Blogging Plans

Not that I typically have blogging plans per month, but it wasn’t in my September blogging plans to decide to take a semi-hiatus. Everything was proceeding as usual. I presented my September TBR plans a few days ago. I was excited to visit friends and family in Maine.

Monthly Book Blog Wrap-Up: July 2023

Goodbye July and hello August! While I didn’t read a ton of books in July because I was on vacation for 2.5 weeks, I posted more reviews than usual. I also finished some ARCs and posted those reviews. It’s always nice to check another off one’s ARC list. Anyway, before I end up rehashing everything at the beginning, let’s dive into what I did in July.

On My Radar: July 2023

The end of July is approaching quickly, so it’s time for another On My Radar round up of some of the posts I read in the blogosphere. I was on vacation for two weeks out of the month, however. As a result, many of the posts in the round up are from either earlier or later in the month. I know there’s still about a week left in the month, but I also need to spend time writing some reviews and posts for Trope-ical Readathon and my July wrap-up.

So, without further ado, check out what some of your fellow bloggers wrote about in July.
