About meMaterials scientist by day, fiction writer by night. I mostly write cross-genre sf/romance, and it's mostly gay romance. Yes, it's original character slash...

I'm a member of the LibraryThing Early Reviewers blog circle -- my main blog is on DreamWidth and Livejournal, but you can also find my book and DVD reviews mirrored on my book-orientated Wordpress blog, along with my LTER blogroll. Discussion welcome at any of the above, although most of it seems to take place on My LiveJournal.

About my libraryI've been an sf fan as far back as I can remember (literally), and my fiction library is heavily weighted towards sf&f. There's a fair bit of mystery as well, and a scarily large number of Folio Society books of all genres. I write cross-genre romance, so those are in the mix as well. The latter are mostly ARCs, because I get sent things to blurb. :-)

Thank you for letting me know that I had been inaccurate in posting the Inspector Singh book. I erased the review and re-posted it with the correct title.

I received a book, TRINITY SIX, from Library Thing for an early review. The book will be available in the middle of March. When is it the appropriate time to post the review? I don't know how early is too early.

Thank you.

Thank you for your sharing your comments. We will be following up to address your complaints.
Thanks for the swift and supportive reply.
You're right I apologize. I'm doing a signing there next week and was blinded by shameless pandering that I lost sight of common sense. Please forgive my error. Thanks.
Thanks! I'm very happy indeed to know that.
I'm looking forward to reading Lord & Master. You can send either as PDF or html, whichever you find to be the most pleasant reading mode.Kindly send to

Cheers! Victoria
Hello, Jules -

Good to hear from you. But frankly, I think LibraryThing is the last thing Chaz needs! I want him to spend his time writing books, not cataloguing them! In between making chutney, posting on LJ and maybe coming out to play, occasionally, obviously...

Just curious - Why is there a LiveJournal community for LT users? Why not just use the LT talk? or form an LJ group.

There are so many things of which I am perhaps blissfully unaware.
Hey, I wasn't hinting that I thought you were wrong to post it, I am far from having the impression that you're misusing LT.
Hi Jules. Yes, you did convince me, and am happy to be here...I enjoyed setting up my books and just need to upgrade my account. It was a bit of fun and then I learned quickly how to just copy from someone else's shelves if we had the same item!!!

Though...I hadn't been back in for awhile to update, so am just now seeing your comment! Saw your LJ post about the Gor books. I didn't want to comment on the discussion trail (little intimidated)...I guess those books I just took as a bit of fantasy fun sure did kick off a great conversation trail. Same thing happened to me when I read the Dune books...people started comparing the social/economic ramifications of the society, and I guess I just sorta stuttered and said, um, yeah, I was in it for the adventure. shallow of me I guess? but that's why I liked reading your LJ, makes me think beyond my limited realm.
I will write to them, then. I'm a little obsessive compulsive. I like having a series all in one format :-)
Hi Jules, it's nice to see you on LT! Question: are subsequent volumes of Syndicate going to be released in paperback like 1 & 2? Smiles, J'
