Like Birds is on Wattpad.

Wattpad has fascinated me and scared me since I started getting serious about my writing. Even before I knew what it was, I liked the idea of serially posting a story online. The problem was, traditional publishing just holds too much allure. Now that I have one book signed with a small press and anotherContinue reading “Like Birds is on Wattpad.”

Book Review – Ardulum: Second Don

Ardulum: Second Don by J.S. Fields My rating: 5 of 5 stars The second book was just as good as the first, and I am very thankful I was able to get a free digital ARC. The characters were constantly growing and being pushed to evolve. They were all flawed in ways that made meContinue reading “Book Review – Ardulum: Second Don”

Book Review: Phaethon

Phaethon by Rachel Sharp My rating: 5 of 5 stars From Holly Black to Jim Butcher, I read a lot of books that involve Faeries of one kind or another. Still, this one felt fresh. It had the folklore grounding of a Holly Black novel, but a tone and humor more likely to appeal toContinue reading “Book Review: Phaethon”

Book Review: Dalí

I received a free, electronic copy of Dalí from NineStar Press in exchange for an honest review. I admit, I haven’t read much space opera, if any, since Karen Traviss stopped writing for the Star Wars franchise. I stuck to fantasy, and to science fiction that did not involve space travel because nothing quite comparedContinue reading “Book Review: Dalí”

Micro Fiction: The Importance of a Clean Windshield

The Importance of a Clean Windshield By Sara Codair “Scrape that off before you make the jump.” Dad’s voice crackled through the com. Like everything Iris’ family owned, it was utterly obsolete. He faded to static. Iris imagined him lecturing her on the dangers of bringing organic, terrestrial material, like pollen and bird shit, intoContinue reading “Micro Fiction: The Importance of a Clean Windshield”

Flash Fiction: At Last

The following piece of flash fiction was originally published on Cracked Flash and was the runner up for their week 44 competition. I made some revisions based on the feedback I received from the judges. At Last By Sara Codair The sword fell out of Lenora’s hand. It was over. After years of slaving awayContinue reading “Flash Fiction: At Last”

Flash Fiction: Hope

Hope By Sara Codair “Don’t feel bad. I’m pretty hard to kill,” said GiYu. His purple appendages were already reattached and his torso was knitting itself back together. The human female nodded and sucked air in through her nose. The slurping sound worried GiYu that the mucus her crying had evoked was making it hardContinue reading “Flash Fiction: Hope”
