Movie Review: Cinderella (2015)

Hey, everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts over the past week. I know I said on Twitter that I'd be taking a brief hiatus while I moved my blog over to WordPress--with a fancy new domain name and everything!--but the process is turning out to be a bit more slow-going than I anticipated. Moral of the story: sometimes you actually do have to read the terms of service, because there may just be a clause stating that the web hosting service you just signed up for doesn't allow profanity. So then after you decide that going clean and family-friendly ain't happening, you cancel your subscription but decide to keep the domain name that came with it, switch over to a new web host, decide that getting G-Suite with the package might be a good idea so you can have a domain name email to start a mailing list with, but because the domain name is provided by a different web hosting service the process just became way more complicated and in the end you kind of want to light your computer on fire.

So yeah, I figured I'd take a break from all that for a while and finish the movie review I started writing almost a week ago. This will probably be my last post as a Blogger blogger, so you'd think I'd be a little more sentimental; after all, I've been blogging here since May, 2014. And maybe I am, just a little bit, but the way I see it, making the jump over to self-hosting and WordPress represents me turning over a new leaf as a writer. I'm trying to be a bit more serious about it these days, especially now that recent events in my life have afforded me more time to devote to my writing and blogging. I'd like to try my luck at putting myself out there as an author, as well as possibly making a bit of money off of my writing. I want to devote more time and effort into building this blog into something I can be proud of, give it all the sweet lovin' it deserves. I want to self-publish the fantasy short story collection I've been working on, I want to crank out all those steamy romance novel ideas I've had--or that my alter-ego has had--I want to do a lot of things as a writer, and to do that I need to make some changes and have a fresh start. I'm pretty excited about it, but a little nervous, too. But you can rest assured, no matter where this writing journey takes me, All Write-y Then will still be the same... just a lot better.

But you came here for a review, right?

Romance Mini-Reviews: My Sexy Sensei and Bad Things

Yes, I am back with another installment of erotic romance mini-reviews. I bet you're all just so excited.

No, wait, come back! I've got a fantasy review, a movie review, and a sporking all planned for this week!

I know, I know, I keep trying to move away from sub-par erotica on this blog, but it's been hard to avoid when I've been consuming an uncharacteristically high volume of erotic romance in the past six months or so as "research" for my own romance series I've been trying to write. So yeah, now I have a modest backlog of books, although I can promise you that these will be the last two romance novels I'll be reviewing for quite a while. Yes, really. But hey, if you're one of those people who actually stick around for my erotic romance reviews, then I can also promise you that you haven't seen the last of them forever. Also, if you're interested in seeing how my own sexy writing measures up, maybe give some love to my alter-ego Siena Noble? Not to honk my own horn, by I think my freshman effort at romance is pretty not horrible. Or at least it will be, if I ever finish it. Which I totally will, by like, October. Or maybe August. It's not the only thing I'm working on at the moment, ok? I've got a secret fantasy project in the works, too, plus this blog which is still my baby and needs some serious TLC.

Book Review: A Game of Thrones

So, uh, yeah... I've kinda been promising a certain book review for literally almost a year, haven't I?

Hopefully the music will last you until the end of this review.

(WARNING: Minor spoilers ahead for both the book and the first season of the show, although I'll try to keep it as spoiler-free as possible. Also, the usual ranting and occasional foul language, obvs.)

So I Went to See Fifty Shades Darker...


Man, it feels good to be back. And believe me, there was a time when I myself did think that this blog was dead. One of these days I'll probably write a very candid and emotionally-charged post about everything that's been going on with me for the past half year or so. But right now, I've got a shitty movie to rant about. Because you know that if there was one thing that could bring me out of retirement, it would be Fifty Shades of Garbage.
