Tsana's March Status

My life has not become less busy or stressful since my last post. A lot of things have happened but most of them did not result in extra reviews. For example, Ditmar Ballot (Shortlist) was announced, as was the Aurealis Awards Shortlist. On the announcing front, Holly Kench and I announced our upcoming anthology,  Defying Doomsday, which we will be running a Pozible crowdfunding campaign for in April and which will be out in 2016 from Twelfth Planet Press. Stay tuned for more announcements relating to that and get ready to preorder your copy in a few weeks. And finally, you might want to check out my Australian Women Writers review round-up on the AWW website.

What Have I Read?

Not enough. Some pretty solid books though.

Currently Reading

The rest of The Last Quarrel by Duncan Lay, for obvious reasons. I'm also part way through Black Dove, White Raven by Elizabeth Wein. I've put it down for the moment since I'm not quite in the mood. I'm also part way through A.K.A. Fudgepuddle by Fin J Ross, a cute book about the inner lives of cats (in a fictional sense) that I keep dipping into.

New Booksies

More than last month. And all of them except one are by Australian women. Go team AWW!
  • Graced by Amanda Pillar — review copy, also the author is a friend
  • Liesmith by Alis Franklin — my husband wanted it based off an internet recommendation
  • The Astrologer's Daughter by Rebecca Lim — review copy
  • God's War by Kameron Hurley — the only not AWW, bought because of something the author said online and because I liked The Mirror Empire.
  • Pyramids of London by Andrea K Höst — Purchased because I've enjoyed the author's other books
  • Cherry Crow Children by Deborah Kalin — early copy because I helped proofread it. Already reviewed
  • Skin by Ilka Tampke — Purchased because it contains my favourite Welsh historical figure
  • Hunt for Valamon by DK Mok — review copy
