Hello hello! Happy March!
February really flew by for me. Gabe and I took a quick trip to Los Angeles and celebrated our four-year anniversary. I hit my first big streaming goal and finished playing The Forest (again). I also made serious headway with changes for the Touch opera. Last but not least, I signed another game writing contract and have been loving my freelance work.
All in all, it was an excellent month. Today, Slash-Her is out in the world. It includes my story “Railroad,” and you should totally check it out.
Moving on! Here’s what you might want to watch, read, and play this month, based on everything I loved in February:
Watch
  • UnREAL (2015) - A behind-the-scenes look at the chaos surrounding the production of a dating competition program. I am obsessed with this show. Warning: It did get canceled, so there is no real ending here.
  • The Book of Boba Fett (2022) - Okay, yes. I’m a giant Star Wars fan. In this show, bounty hunter Boba Fett & mercenary Fennec Shand navigate the underworld when they return to Tatooine to claim Jabba the Hutt’s old turf. There are also some great connections to The Mandalorian.
Read
  • Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter (2018) - #1 internationally bestselling author Karin Slaughter returns with a sophisticated and chilling psychological thriller of dangerous secrets, cold vengeance, and unexpected absolution, in which two estranged sisters must come together to find truth about two harrowing tragedies, twenty years apart, that devastate their lives. Sisters. Strangers. Survivors. More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia’s teenaged sister Julia vanished without a trace. The two women have not spoken since, and now their lives could not be more different. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire. Lydia, a single mother, dates an ex-con and struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the horror and heartbreak of their shared loss—a devastating wound that’s cruelly ripped open when Claire’s husband is killed. The disappearance of a teenage girl and the murder of a middle-aged man, almost a quarter-century apart: what could connect them? Forming a wary truce, the surviving sisters look to the past to find the truth, unearthing the secrets that destroyed their family all those years ago … and uncovering the possibility of redemption, and revenge, where they least expect it.This book made me physically sick. Please enjoy.
Play
  • Horizon Forbidden West (2022) - Explore distant lands, fight bigger and more awe-inspiring machines, and encounter astonishing new tribes as you return to the far-future, post-apocalyptic world of Horizon. The land is dying. Vicious storms and an unstoppable blight ravage the scattered remnants of humanity, while fearsome new machines prowl their borders. Life on Earth is hurtling towards another extinction, and no one knows why. It’s up to Aloy to uncover the secrets behind these threats and restore order and balance to the world. Along the way, she must reunite with old friends, forge alliances with warring new factions and unravel the legacy of the ancient past – all the while trying to stay one step ahead of a seemingly undefeatable new enemy.

P.S. I have some books in upcoming promotions! Check them out and show support for the other indie authors involved. Best of all, grab some free or discount books.

Indie Book Spotlight
This month, I’m thrilled to showcase Ryan R. Campbell’s Scambait. Scambait is the story of corporate do-little Eric Amundsen, who spends his workdays wasting the time of Nigerian princes and car warranty salesmen everywhere. But when his supposedly long-deceased father contacts him through his spam folder, Eric—whose workday mantra isn’t exactly “solutions oriented"—has serious problems to solve.
This story has notes of Unboxed, so it’s right up my spooky alley. You can preorder the book here, and sign up to get a free excerpt here. I’m so looking forward to this one!
