I think I mention First Reader once or twice a week around here. for those of you who are new, I call her First Reader because she’s even better than a beta–she’s a plot-hole finder, life saver, nag (in the best way), and a very good friend.
She’s also a supplier of Great Things to Read. She writes amazing paranormal YA and truly marvelous steampunk. Her werewolf novel is being shopped around as we speak—in my opinion, it’s only a matter of time.
And now she has a blog: Semi-Educational Reviews. It’s only about a week old, but it already features an interview with Tessa Dawn, author of Blood Destiny, and a restaurant review that’s making me crave woodfire-grilled pizza.
Have a look!
And now for a Rad Bromance:
I shamelessly swiped the vid from Smart Bitches, Trashy Books* because, frankly, I am amazed. I swiped the “Rad Bromance” thing from a YouTube comment because it’s absolutely perfect and risked my keyboard this morning.
Interesting fact: Patrick Goble reminds me of my brother-in-law, in looks, humor, and creativity . My BIL is a natural entertainer (though no guitarist) who once worked out an arrangement of “How Much is that Doggie in the Window” for forklift-horn octet. An Applause tattoo would not surprise anyone in the family.
Have a delightful weekend!

Wow–talk about singing praises! I’m unbelievably flattered. I’ve only blushed less than a handful of times and if I had a mirror, I’d say now was one of those times from the feel of my face. Thank you! And would you just go and get the pizza already. You’ll feel much better. Believe me.
Also, that Rad Bromance–well, that’s the best version of the song I’ve ever heard and I was a fan of the original!
Ain’t flattery if it’s true. 🙂
Maybe I can talk everyone into pizza tonight. . .
Thanks for sharing your First Reader. She sounds like a keeper!
We all need friends like that. (And now I’m craving grilled pizza too.)
You are a friend like that, Averil.
