Blogletter: How the Heck is it July Already?

Blogletter: How the Heck is it July Already?

It’s been a couple of months since I last did a big blog. Initially I put it off because I didn’t have a lot to share. Then I put it off because I knew I would have a lot to share…soon. There’s still a couple of things on the horizon to announce in the near future BUT two big updates happened:

  • The RACC PACK cover was revealed and our book is officially available for pre-order! Look at it over there on the right…isn’t it beautiful?!


  • Pillow Talk is also available now for pre-order! We haven’t unveiled the cover just yet but my first YA graphic novel will be out in March 2024 and you can ensure yourself a Day One copy now.


Both release dates are getting nearer and nearer, and I can’t wait for you to get to read them! More on both soon. I’m so thrilled that I can talk about Racc Pack now and show people what we’ve been cooking up. It’s truly one of my favourite things that I’ve written so I hope that comes through as people read it.

On top of graphic novel updates, I also have a few other updates:

  • My Little Pony: Camp Bighoof #1 will be out later this month. It’ll arrive in stores on Jul. 26, 2023 and I’m over-the-moon to have folks see the fun story we’ve cooked up around the campfire.
  • Pekoe has launched!!! For the last (almost) two years, I have been writing on an indie video game, and on Wednesday, it was released. Well, our Early Access was released. The full game isn’t available quite yet but we’re getting there.

So there’s been a lot happening! Plus it’s been generally busy in my personal life as well, so I’m looking forward to hopefully some quiet time for myself in the near future. That being said, I figured I’d share some updates about the stuff I’ve been enjoying. It’s been a minute so the lists are a little lengthy. The bolded titles are the standouts:


  • RuPaul’s Drag Race S15
  • Love is Blind S4
  • Daisy Jones & the Six
  • Steven Universe
  • The Challenge S36-38
  • Owl House S3
  • Abbott Elementary S2
  • Bluey S1
  • Succession S4
  • Schmigadoon S2
  • Ted Lasso S3
  • Ultimatum: Queer Love S1
  • Jury Duty S1
  • Yellowjackets S2

And moving onto books…in this case, the bold is just the titles and some have reviews…and some don’t. I’m sorry! It’s been busy and my brain is mush, but hopefully there’s still some fun insight below:


  • The Luminaries by Susan Dennard – Great world building and an intriguing premise! I wanted more answers by the end of the book, so slightly bummed there but definitely a good launching point to a compelling new series.
  • Hey Kiddo by Jarrett J. Krosoczka
  • King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo
  • Down Among the Sticks and Bones (Wayward Children #2) by Seanan McGuire – I am absolutely in love with this dark, creepy, and inventive series. The first book sets up the premise while the subsequent books reveal side and back stories to the characters we meet in the first. Wonderfully compelling and easily consumed in short, novellas.
  • Dark Rise by C.S. Pacat
  • Where Echoes Die by Courtney Gould – Where Echoes Die is a compelling and satisfying thriller mystery that captured me early on and didn’t let up. The characters are complex and interesting and the story takes you on a wild journey that feels straight out of something along the lines of YA X-Files. Very worth checking out!
  • Measuring Up by Lily LaMotte and Ann Xu – A beautiful exploration of family, food, and finding your footing. Really exceptional and enjoyable!
  • Lemon Bird Can Help! by Paulina Ganucheau
  • The Moth Keeper by K. O’Neill – Wonderful and beautiful—an original story with stunning art that evokes Miyazaki, and more. Another slam dunk graphic novel for K. O’Neill.
  • Shuna’s Journey by Hayao Miyazaki and Alex Dudok de Wit (Translator) – A stunning masterpiece from a world-class storyteller.
  • The Book Eaters by Sunyi Dean
  • Nettle & Bone by T. Kingfisher – This might be a new favourite. Fantastic writing, compelling characters, an exciting adventure with mystery and murder…truly, what more could you want? Thoroughly enjoyed!
  • Over My Dead Body by Sweeney Boo
  • The Legend of Auntie Po by Shing Yin Khor
  • Lightlark by Alex Aster – This had an intriguing premise but truthfully, I couldn’t really get into it.
  • Danger and Other Unknown Risks by Ryan North and Erica Henderson – A genuine delight! This was such a fun, and funny read that I loved from start to finish.
  • The Night Eaters, Vol. 1: She Eats the Night by Marjorie M. Liu , Sana Takeda
  • Witch Hat Atelier, Vol. 4-6 by Kamome Shirahama and Stephen Kohler (Translator)
  • If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio – Didn’t expect this to consume quite like it did but once I started it, I couldn’t put it down.

You can find my full reading list on Goodreads.

I’m thinking about how to reformat these blogs to give you some more fun information and make them a little more exciting to read. I’ll be working on that for the coming months and hopefully will give you something fresh very soon.

Stay safe out there and thank you—as always—for your love and support.
