Silver Phoenix Giveaway

Never in my adult life have I read a book that immediately made me want to go out and meet the person who wrote it. Never until I read Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon. Honestly there are so many things not to like about Silver Phoenix for me.  That may seem like a harsh thing to say, but I have blogged quite a bit about how much I dislike fantasy and find it unapproachable.  I also particularly dislike historical fiction.  Cindy described Silver Phoenix as faux historical and instead of hating that fact about the book I LOVED IT.  The fantasy, the history, and the mythology all weaved together into a perfect story for me.


In honor of the forthcoming sequel entitled Fury of the Phoenix, I am giving away 5 copies of the paperback edition of Silver Phoenix so you can have a chance to read this remarkable book before the next one releases on March 29, 2011.


To enter just leave a comment on this post saying you would like to win the book.  Make sure there is a way for me to contact you if you are a winner!


Throughout the month of March I will be posting guest reviews from various bloggers of Silver Phoenix and stay tuned because there may be ways to earn extra entries!! And of course I still have to struggle to put into words my own experience on reading and falling in love with this book.


Enter to win one of five paperback copies of Silver Phoenix.


P. S. In case you missed it, I did get a chance to meet Cindy and it was amazing. Thanks Cindy for being such a generous author!

Repost – My FAVORITE Actor

This is a repost of a blog I did about a year ago. I decided to repost it because I wrote this early on in my exposure to comic books and graphic novels and because, as you will read, it features my favorite actor of all time. When I told a friend I was reading Rumble Fish by S.E. Hinton, he brought to my attention that it was also a movie and the movie happened to have Nicolas Cage in it. I highly dislike Nicolas Cage and I think my friend likes to bring up his name as much as possible just to annoy me. (why would anyone EVER want to do that? He must have a death wish.)

But I actually appreciated it this time. It has been interesting to read about the movie in which Cage plays the minor role of Smokey Bennett. It was also brought to my attention that Nick Cage isn't Nick Cage at all, but Nicolas Kim Copula. I remember vaguely hearing in the past, since he is the nephew of Francis Ford Copula. Who happen to direct Rumble Fish and The Outsiders. Cage was asked to help out his uncle…

Short Story Saturday - The Machine Stops Part 1

I was first exposed to "The Machine Stops" by E.M. Forster through a book called Scraps of the Untainted Sky. The title of the book, in fact, comes from the closing line of the short story, which the author considers to be "one of the first instance of dystopian narrative." I purchased this book several years ago in order to gain insight into my interest in dystopic literature.This interest has been newly rekindled and broadened into science fiction in general. If you call yourself a fan of science fiction and you haven't read this story, do so now or you are a fraud. If you think you don't like science fiction, I suggest you read this story and make sure. (Audio and full text are available online for free.)This short story, if you can classify it as such at 12,000 words, has 3 chapters and was published in 1909. The date of publication is overwhelming when one takes into consideration how many technological advances the author was able to predict. The…
